Do you like the LG G6? (Poll results)


A bit over a week ago, at MWC 2017, LG announced the G6, its latest flagship smartphone. The new handset is made out of metal and glass, being packed with enhancements - like the 5.7-inch FullVision display that offers an unusual 1440 x 2880 pixels resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio.

LG designed the G6 is such a way that the device is smaller than virtually all other 5.7-inch phones currently on the market, even being smaller than LG's own 5.3-inch G5. Thus, it's no wonder that the G6 received - and will continue to receive - a lot of attention.

Shortly after the new LG flagship was officially unveiled, we published this poll, asking you if you liked it. Now, looking at the poll results, we can concluded that LG got most things right with the G6, as only 13.98% of voters are convinced that they don't like it. 22.2% of voters are not yet sure about the smartphone, waiting to see it and feel it in real life to pass judgments. Finally (and more importantly), 63.83% of all voters like the G6 - which is, of course, excellent news for LG.

As you may have heard, the LG G6 is launching this week in South Korea, but it will likely not be available in the US before April. Meanwhile, in case you haven't done it yet, you should check out our LG G6 preview to get a closer look at the device.

LG has failed yet again to make a good smartphone. How many times will we see this in the Android manufacturing space? The phone nails in just about every single area BUT design. You guys just wasted a year developing a phone that doesn't look like it's ready for prime time. Why? Because you guys are too busy sitting on your butts and eating donuts while getting extremely fat. That's what happens when you're not ready to innovate. That's what happens when you clearly have absolutely no direction and just follow what others are doing. The back of the phone looks so bad that I'd hate to ever turn the phone over on its back in public. That's like having something that you only like on certain days, when you want to face the front. So no LG - LIFE IS NOT GOOD. Life isn't good because you guys are so damn lazy to compete with Samsung. You had one job to do against the S8 and you guys couldn't even come up with a sexy offering. Not that the entire phone's design sucks, but the majority of it is just silly and more gimmick than anything. 18:9? You guys don't even know how to do simple math yet you guys are in the tech mobile industry. How damn silly is that? Look - People must realize that the design of a phone is one of those things that is tranferred to a consumer for little cost if you are buying a prestige level flagship. It should be a given that the design needs to be straight up excellent with minimal flaws. Unfortunately, LG thinks we are stupid and don't understand the concept of free things passed on to the consumer indirectly with the purchase of a good. Why do you guys think the pre order numbers for this were bad? No body wants a phone with a terrible design in 2017. It's just a waste of money and a waste of research. I'd rather have a dumb phone than walk around with that horrendous phone. So regardless of what this poll says, everybody do yourselves a favor and stand as far away from this lame device as you can. It's nothing but a wack incentive for LG to push their vision of future designs to its consumers. Well guess what LG! THE FUTURE IS NOW. You guys need to wake up ASAP and get your stuff together. Your design team must be smoking that good good thinking that this will get you guys a top or reputable spot in the competition of today's world. This wouldn't get you a top spot at TOYS R US! I'm just sick and tired of companies not giving a damn about the products they produce, and just using us, the general public, as some damn beta testers for the products they know are not ready. Let's think about this for a second. What is at all exciting about the G6? ram aint great weak butt 821 chip Battery ain't that big the design isn't great. So everybody. Please stay away from this crappy phone. IT JUST AINT GOOD> Yo LG, make Life Good again, because right now it sucks for you playa.

Any chance of a TL;DR for that load of verbal diarrhea you just spouted?

So you're points are: - RAM isn't great: - Snapdragon 821 SoC is not powerful enough - Battery is not big enough for this type of product - Design needs improving Point 1: 4GB of Ram for a smartphone is plenty.. Nougat (plus LG's skin) does not need anything bigger than 4GB. I'm sure LG has optimized their software to take full advantage of the RAM. Point 2: The Snapdragon 821 chip might not be an 835, but LG clearly stated at MWC that they are not about specs this time around, more on the lines of delivering a solid top tier phone that runs exceptionally well. Just take a look at Apple's Mac Pro that has not seen an update in over 3 years. Sure it is in a different category as the LG G6 (Smartphone vs Desktop Computer) but it is still a fast performer with dated hardware. However I do agree that it shouldn't still be roughly $3000. And the SoC does not solely determine the price of the phone. Point 3: 3300 mAh is not a small battery size, nor is it the biggest. But we don't even know what it's screen on time is yet, so that point isn't valid until we see some real world testing. Point 4: Everybody has the right to choose whether they like a design or not, but you have to admin that it IS an improvement over last years not so great LG G5 "metal" phone. Lastly, you mention numerous times that the LG G6 isn't "innovative" and that LG needs to start "innovating" and "make life good again". How is the LG G5 not innovative? LG took a bold and risky move to try and innovate the smartphone scene with a somewhat modular design. Including dual cameras, and good screen to body ratio, and keeping what fans love... a removable battery. Yes it was a huge flop, but innovative non the less. LG learned from the G5 and made a solid flagship this year with the LG G6. Keeping it safe for sure, but when has Apple not kept it safe recently?

So many flops and ignorance in your analysis. First of all, as at the time G6 was designed, Snapdragon 835 was still in developing stage. As at today, how many phones are running on Snapdragon 835? None yet but would soon. And LG V30 has been reported to run on Snapdragon 835, 6GB RAM. There's nothing bad about the design of G6 that you are saying you won't be able to bring it out in public. That's ridiculous. This was the same early misinformed analysis given to G5 that affected it badly (even though the Friends weren't great and useful). People who have not even used the phone were writing BAD reviews of G5!!!!! Ridiculous. G5 is one of the most stable smartphone in the market even in 2017. You only need to use it to understand what I'm talking about. In all, your review here is a total flop, more so that you haven't used the phone yourself.

I use the LG G5 and its superior in all aspect to the S7. Its has better battery life than the S7 ( both SD820 and exynos ) the S7 edge beat it yes. Its has more authentic with more detail pictures with added options compared to S7 . Its never throttle or slow down or even micro lag in the UI ( S7 is an oven ) Its look very good ( ence why i removed my otterbox defender and using a spiegen hybrid clear case and man thats phone is nice looking ) sure S7 edge has better design for the looking but G5 still one of the best looking phone of 2016. Hater got to hate i guess.

"Its has better battery life than the S7 ( both SD820 and exynos ) the S7 edge beat it yes." But GSMArena says the contrary, as the S7 scored 80hrs in the battery chart and that's 20hrs more than the G5 which scored a measly 60hrs. Even PA's battery life rating puts the regular S7 above the LG G5! The credibility of GSMArena surpasses your anecdotal claims of your G5 having better battery life

I gotta agree with Jacksie66. Your comment is a load of crap. And as I speak with most commenters here, you forgot to say... IN MY OPINION. I think it's a fantastic looking device. A sexy beast. With great specs. Guaranteed you couldn't make a device even half as good. So take your arm chair hustling thataway. Playa. Because life only seems to suck for you.

S8 > G6 Besides, LG fanboys are annoying because they know Samsung products are better.

4. AlikMalix unregistered

You know what's annoying is that you think you know better than everyone else.

Definitely agree with you there. They seriously irk me.

There's no product that is better than the other, it all comes down to preference at the end of the day. I read your initial comment which at first stated this "S8 > G6" (which I find makes no sense seeing that the LG G6 and the Galaxy S8/S8+ is not Consumer ready to jump to that conclusion), but then you later added this to your comment "Besides, LG fanboys are annoying because they know Samsung products are better." If I were you, I would've left that last comment out so that no negative conversation starts brewing, this article is about the poll results of the LG G6, who mentioned anything about the S8?

20. maherk

Says the person who keeps saying the G6 is better than the S8, also the same that keeps criticizing the S8 which hasn't been announced yet. Don't you ever notice the hypocrisy in your posts?

We actually prefer that YOU shut up, not maherk.

First of all, I never said the LG G6 was an all around better device than the Galaxy S8/S8+ or Vice Versa, all I compared the LG G6 to the Galaxy S8/S8+ was it's design choice, and felt that LG's was more sensible than Samsung's, don't put words in my mouth. Secondly, the only thing I critiqued about the Galaxy S8/S8+, was it's design choice, not the device in it's entirety (Performance, Camera Quality, Battery Life, etc). Thirdly, next time read all of my comments before spouting BS!

Seriously? You must be kidding. If you like Samsung, go for it. Those who like LG are also doing same. There's nothing like one is better over another, no, never!!!

Samsung fanboys like you are what's wrong with tech fans.

Yes for an iPhone fan this device actually caught a lot of my interest. Maybe LG is ready to go up against Samsung for android market share.
