Can't wait to see the LG G6? Here's an early look at the real thing!
by Luis D. / Jan 24, 2017, 1:43 AM
You can't stop a highly expected smartphone from showing up in advance. The interest is just too high not to reveal it before its scheduled announcement date. Thus, here's a glimpse at the LG G6 – or a good part of it, at least, about a month before its February 26 announcement at MWC 2017. It's a looker, ain't it?
G6 is confirmed to have a 5.7-inch display with an unorthodox aspect ratio that makes it a little taller than before and the screen space is (supposedly) more efficiently utilized. Also note the minimal side and top bezels. Yes, LG hasn't completely dealt away with the side bezel by using curved screens, but that's their decision to make. We can also see an elegant metal frame with chamfered edges. Nice, but unusually conservative on LG's part. Perhaps the company has lost faith in design experimentation after its modular design efforts for the LG G5 failed to pay off.The LG
Overall, things look promising for LG's upcoming flagship phone and we're keen on seeing more from it! Meanwhile, feel free to brush up on all the rumors and intel about the smartphone floating on the Internet if you need to. Our comprehensive rumor review is just what you need!

Looks like the screen to body ratio is going to be good. If only it had the SD835 I probably would get one TBH.

LG wont be baking down on 821 on G6, they might use 835 like why would a flagship use last year's chip.and not selling more G5's.. whey will go all the way with the S8.

Holy! This is one mesmerising looking phone. just when LG finally kills it in looks, Samsung decides to be a dick and hoard QC chip supplies. if lg gets some other things right like FM radio, IR blaster right I might actually go for this phone instead. I also like the fact that this is a completely flat screen not those curved functional mess. Samsung, such douchebags. as if the QC chips haven't always been available by this time before. now they help manufacture it and act like supplying much to go round is such a big deal.

I do not believe it either. This is the company thay made such big deals about being the first with dual core, first with LTE, first with the S4 Pro (quad core Krait), first globally available with S800, first GA with Quad HD. The one company that makes such a big deal about being the master of the spec race, and it's hard to imagine it just giving it up like that. Especially after the failure of the G5, they need it to knock it out of the park.

Looks like this is finally the year the OEM's heard our cries and reduced the bezels. Only took them around 4 years to do it. Which means in about 4 years time we'll either get stock Android, better batteries, removable batteries as a standard, removable storage as a standard, headphone jack as a standard (LOL alrite let's not get ridiculous). Great! But wow this thing looks amazing. It's so upsetting Android Oems ruin Android with their ridiculous bloat and ugly skins. I can never approach an HTC, Samsung or LG, no matter how good the hardware looks. It's just feels abusive to degrade Android the way they do. And of course the updates. I've been burned by non existent Android updates too much, any time I buy an Android device, I comes to terms with the fact that this thing will never see an update, before I even buy it. Sad reality of things. But it's alrite death to Apple right, doesn't matter what's wrong in the Android universe as long as we all insult Apple and ensure the world understands how it's been brainwashed. Yup, got that covered.

This was a good post until you started whining about Apple. We get it...a lot of Android users are dumb*sses who shame others' for using iPhone, when Android itself it nowhere near perfect. But honestly, the way you typed that last bit makes it seem as if iPhone/Apple shaming genuinely upsets you, which is a tad on the pathetic side. There's much, MUCH more important things that are actually worth getting upset over, rather than someone insulting your choice of tech.

What's pathetic is how the "Android fans" here proclaim to be from some devine dimension where they have figured out how not get brainwashed by Apple. I'm a huge Android fan and yea it does upset me that the "Android fans" here are so personally molested by Apple for some reason that they down play Androids flaw, you can't have a real conversion of Androids problems without some freak mentioning how it's worse on iOS. I use all 3 Os's, even Windows Phone/Mobile. I'm not biased towards any, I call out the flaws in all of them. I don't know what sins phone arena has committed in its past to be cursed with such freaks as commentors, it's upsetting, it really is, I've been here since the Nseries vs SE days and things weren't anywhere near as bad. So yea expect a jab at the degenerates who call themselves savours of Humanity for being immune to "Apple".

What they should do is still launch the g6 as originally planned with the snapdragon 821 but at a lower price than how they usually do for their flagships and then when they 830 is already available, launch another g6 with 830 but this time priced at how they usually would

LG needs to get strategical here. If Samsung indeed has all the SD835 They need to price this just below the $700 mark. It NEEDS to have a better camera than the V20 while including the audio package. This already looks like a winner. It will definitely sell more than that horrid G5. I am a fanboy of neither Samsung nor LG, I own the V20 but have also owned the S7E and S7. Never had the honor of owning the Note 7 however.
