    I just upgraded to the LG G8 Thinq, as the Sprint lease was coming due on my Samsung Galaxy S8. My goal was to keep my monthly lease payment the same, and Sprint was offering a 50% monthly discount on the LG that met my goal (the Galaxy S9 and S10e were both more).

    While there are a few things I don't like as well with the LG, I will say the audio via my wired Etymotic earbuds is drastically improved on the LG over my old Samsung. Audio quality for music on a smartphone wasn't a big deal to me until I accidentally ran my iPod Nano through the washing machine a year ago. Since Apple doesn't make the Nano anymore (and used prices are ridiculous), I started using my phone instead for music while traveling. The audio quality of the Samsung was very disappointing in comparison to the iPods I have owned. The LG, though, is probably the best sounding portable music player I have ever owned.

    I was impressed enough with the audio to copy most of my personal digital music library to a 128GB microSD card that I installed in the phone, so I now can carry my entire collection with me wherever I go.

    Just as a follow-up, I ended up transferring the LG G8 Thinq to my wife and getting a Samsung Galaxy S10e. Sprint was offering a good lease price on the Samsung now, and my wife's lease on her low-end Samsung phone was up.

    While I liked the audio on the LG, the Android Auto app kept disconnecting from my vehicle when I would hit an area without data coverage. Since I use the Android Auto app a lot for navigation, this was unacceptable to me. My wife never uses the navigation with AA, so this isn't an issue for her. The LG phone is a big improvement over her old Samsung Galaxy J3.

    I have the G8 and really like it.

    So I take it you didn't load the all new version of AA to your G8 before deciding to switch?

    How well is the Samsung handling AA?

    I had the latest version of Android Auto installed at the time, and the firmware on my vehicle was also at the latest version.. It just didn't work properly when paired with my GMC Acadia. The Samsung Galaxy S10e has worked perfectly with the same vehicle, just as my old Galaxy S8 did. I did get a new version of AA for the Galaxy S10e recently, but I have not tried it again on the LG. My wife doesn't use her phone for navigation (she's happy with her Buick Encore's built-in navigation on the rare occasion she needs it, although I much prefer Google Maps), and she's not giving up the LG anyway.

    My wife does really like the LG G8 ThinQ. It's a very nice phone, except for the AA glitch I encountered. Unfortunately, I use my phone for navigation a lot, so it was an unacceptable defect.
