8 things that could've made the new LG G6 even more awesome!
Well, well, the LG G6 is out and wow, is it an impressive device! A 5.7-inch screen stuck inside a body that's actually shorter and narrower than the 5.3-inch LG G5? That's incredible! No camera bump? Awesome! A new 2:1 screen that has software optimizations to make use of the weird ratio? Great! This year around, LG really put an effort into developing unique features that actually look and feel at least semi-useful, instead of ones that leave a gimmicky taste, and we are excited to see how the G6 does when it hits the market.

That said, there's also room for nit-picking, and we can see a few things that could've made the LG G6 even more awesome, even if it's for your niche poweruser. Check out our ideas below and feel free to voice your thoughts on the device in the comments below!

COMPLETE ALUMINUM build with a REMOVABLE BATTERY is the solution. NO REMOVABLE BATTERY = FAIL GLASS BUILD = FAIL LG just committed suicide. F THEM. The G4/G5 were great, then LG copied craApple. The S5 was awesome, then Samsuck copied craApple. Now, every phone is a insult to everyone who can think for themselves.

No surprise that a new flagship would be better than an old flagship but we all appreciate the heads up

But it's about to get crushed by the S8 and whatever the hell the next iPhones are called. This is not a good thing for LG.

I would agree if it wasn't surrounded in plastic (the plastic over metal crap), and had an oled screen

You mean this year's phone barley stands up against last year's phones? Yes, you're right.

To be honest I am not impressed with the lg g6 I rather stick to my ugly g5 with the camera model than upgrade to the g6, I was expecting a hole lot more. Samsung has another winner if the what we have seen come to pass.

Wow. Defending your point with last year's issue? Sounds girly.

It isn't awesome beside reduced top and bottom bezels. Not even side bezels. There isn't camera hump because they apparently reduced z height of the camera module by switching to a smaller sensor.

I like LG , I don't really care about stereo speakers and no removable battery doesn't bother me much, but I do agree with free rest.

Looks likr a Sammie wanna be with updated Android OS. LG is killing themselves with no consistency and a consistent use of the panic button. Nothing special here except for the sleek design. But that logo of that facr at the bottom just killed the design. Well done, but not enough.

LG G6. = lackluster... The V30 will be the real flagship for LG this year...

You will still be able to buy the Hi/Fi DAC version online later. So this is not a problem. What LG should have done, is to make a 64 GB internal storage option for the whole world, and add stereo speakers.

Faster processor, 360 camera, and having both wireless charging and quad DAC

The V10 came with 64gb, had a hifi dac, available wireless charging, dual front camera, removable battery. Its downfall was one of the s**ttiest processors that was a battery hog. Why is LG taking steps back??? I still think the V10 was the last creative design. The G6 is so bland and there is no innovation here as far as design or features.

I'm glad to see (dual front-facing) stereo speakers were first on this list. They were popular a few years ago on Motorola and Nexus devices but now neither company offers them. I hope dual speakers make a comeback, they just make sense.
