In this video, I unbox the LG G8X with dual screen bundle that you can get for just $699 at launch. This is definitely more durable than the Galaxy Fold with a practical design and a price tag that anyone can afford. I think this is what Galaxy Fold should have been for the first version then slowly develop into full foldable screen.
But LG has definitely made something useful that can take daily beatings, the LG G8X with dual screen is built like a tank! The dual screen also doubles as rugged case. I am pleasantly surprised at the new LG G8X with dual screen as you can use it as a regular smartphone or pop the second screen on to make it into a foldable tablet. While not perfect by any means, I feel like LG has done more to bring latest technology to the masses rather than bringing fragile device that users must pay attention to not break its screen like the Galaxy Fold. Also, price is right on, at $699 for both the phone and second screen, LG is offering some really awesome tech for pennies.
I should have a full review of the LG G8X with dual screen after I use it for a bit longer but I am really impressed so far.
