JerryRigEverything disassembled LG G8 ThinQ and advises not to buy this smartphone

Famous blogger Zach Nielson, author of the YouTube channel JerryRigEverything, conducted his traditional strength tests

for the LG G8 ThinQ smartphone, and it has proven to be a pretty tough nut to crack. But after that, Zach also decided to disassemble the “eight”, and after delving into it, he was left disappointed.

What's wrong?

Even before the disassembly began, the blogger was confused by the message about the danger of removing the battery in the curtain of a working device. As it turned out, it was there for good reason.

The fact is that the smartphone battery is deadattached with a thick layer of glue. Therefore, it is almost impossible to peel it off without damaging it. Zach is outraged that in this way the manufacturer is putting at risk the technicians who will change the battery (there is no talk of self-repair). After all, a damaged battery can explode and catch fire at any time.

In addition, a special glue is poured generouslymodule that enables Crystal Sound Display technology to transmit sound directly through the screen, without a speaker. This module is glued to the back of the display through a metal partition.

After disassembling the LG G8 ThinQ continued to work, but it is unlikely that anyone will use it now - according to Zach, after manipulating the battery, this is unreasonable and unsafe.

“If you’re choosing between two phones, youYou should NOT buy the LG G8 until they eliminate the adhesive on the battery and add regular latches. Batteries don't last forever. And eventually, someone will definitely decide to replace the battery. And when that day comes…. The battery should be much easier to change than in this case,” says Zach Nielson.
