LG K8 (2018) reviews

K8 (2018) 16GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Moroccan Blue) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Deal The phone arrived a day early which was much appreciated as my old phone was a piece of junk and it's battery was dying. After carefully cutting my old standard SIM card to fit the nano SIM card slot, I slipped it in, charged up the phone, and it worked fine. I love that it's so slim although that will change a bit when I add a cover. Packaging was just right. I have had the phone about a week and haven't found anything about it that I don't like.
