Do you like the LG G6?


After admitting that the G5 was somewhat of a failure sales-wise, LG got back to the drawing board in search of ideas for a new and better flagship smartphone. That's how we got the LG G6, which was officially announced yesterday at MWC 2017.

Right now, it seems that the G6 is indeed better than the G5 in pretty much every aspect, but we want to know if you like it.

The first thing that strikes you about the LG G6 is that, although it sports a very generous 5.7-inch screen, the phone itself isn't larger than devices featuring 5.5-inch, or even 5.3-inch screens. This is thanks to the exceptional screen to body ratio that the G6 is offering. The G6's display itself, called FullVision, is unique, as it has round corners and a 1440 x 2880 pixel resolution for an 18:9 aspect ratio.

The G6 is LG's first global flagship handset to be dust- and water-resistant (IP68-certified), and it's even shock-resistant to some degree. As a tradeoff (for some users), the device packs a non-removable battery - a 3300 mAh unit.

The new LG phone relies on a Snapdragon 821 processor - not Qualcomm's latest high-end chipset, but still powerful enough for a 2017 flagship. Other notable features include a fingerprint scanner, dual 13 MP rear camera, 4 GB of RAM, and 32 GB / 64 GB of expandable storage space. Android 7.1 Nougat with Google Assistant will be available out of the box.

While it's launching in South Korea (and maybe other international markets) in March, the LG G6 might not be available in the US before April. Once it does reach US shores, the phone will be out on all major carriers: AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon and Sprint have all confirmed that they'd sell the device.

Go for the LG if you like, but make sure to AVOID the Galaxy S8 Why?: - Hard to manage, as it's nearly bezel-less and gimmicky curved screen - Very laggy OS with touchwiz issues immediately on-board - Overpriced with 4gb ram cap - Samsung phones have a tendency to explode - Awful resale value - You'd be inducted into the Sammy Fanboy Club, which is a group of some of the wackest people on earth

You realize that the lg g6 comes with 4gb of ram too? And that grace ux id way better than LG's ui. Plus 4gb of ram is mlre than enough for now. What are you gonna need 6gb of ram for?

The One Plus 3 is a prime example on why Android needs at least 5-6GBs of RAM. It is still, to this day, extremely fluid and responsive. You are buying a 2017 Flagship phone, you want/deserve to have the best of the best. 4GB of RAM was fine in 2015-2016, but now it is time to move on up.

Everything you mention is complety false. Please buy everything you want but don't write false "facts". S5 and every device before that was laggy yes. But after that every Samsung phone is very smooth even J1 with best screen out there and yes better brand than LG.

Even the J5 2016 is bad. Washed out screen, poor signal reception, scratch prone back.

Lol gimmicky curved screen??? Huawei, apparently One Plus 5 and even iphone will have curved screens lets see all the haters call it a gimmick then. Have you used Touchwizz on the S7 edge?? I dont think you have its very fast and responsive and its also a feature rich UI unlike others like Sonys, and stock android. If Samsung is overpriced with 4GB of Ram what are iphones with 1 or 2GB of Ram?? Awful resale value?? Thats a can be a good thing or a bad thing, imagine you want to buy a new phone but dont want to pay 700 dollars because it has low resale value you can pick it up even cheaper, so it can be a good thing. Nah Chinese fanboys and Apple ones arr just as bad if not worse.

none of android phone have good resale value, that the fact. but Samsung are easier to sale than those of HTC or LG,,,etc. And you were right on bezel-less are gimmick but only when the phones are getting bigger, I mean curve screen cool and has its function if they are 5 inches or less. And about this article, I'd say LG G6 is not bad but I rather spend a week using that phone before I keep or return it ( Just don't like LG G5 screen and its navigation key).

To you its a gimmick but I use my edge features, I like them alot and Samsung tends to sell more of the edge models than the flat version for a reason.

It's funny, ShadowSnypa786, what I said only if Samsung increases their S8 or S8+ screen bigger and bigger then it's becoming a gimmick, because it'll be more practically inconvenient in everyday use.

while it's a nice looking phone, specs are decent but price is ridiculous. Oneplus 3T has more ram, more storage for half price. Will not pay just for the brand.

No service centers around for OnePlus, so why bother? They dont care about customers, so us too.

The SD 821 was First introduced in the Pixel smartphones, which came out in November 2016. As a matter of fact late November. So its a little more than 3 months old now. I am always amazed at how stupid people really are.

reply to #7 doesn't change the fact that newer chipset already available... and SD821 is just SD820 with slightly higher clockspeed..

The 821 isn't the issue it's the fragmented release... Why hold out different features for different countries? They need to price this at $399 then it would be worth it.

You honestly care about something that you literally wouldn't notice at all? There are several reasons to not buy this phone like the huge size and pathetic battery. The processor is fine.

Design isn't bad, but won't buy a new 2017 flagship this year that is using a 821 chip.

40. combatmedic870

I feel the same way. If I buy a flagship this year it'll have an SD835. There is alot of new tech in that chip that I want, not just more power.

the best screen design with minimal bezel,downside is the 821 chip.

60. jimv1983

Posts: 61; Member since: Oct 10, 2013

The bottom bezel, which is the most I important to me slim, is still pretty big. Add that to the huge, wider aspect ratio screen and it's enromous. The other downside is the tiny battery. The Snapdragon 821 is not a downside. You'd literally never notice the difference.

I am still waiting for note 8, but I am liking the G6

I would wait for the note 8 but sadly it will have 4k and i don't like vr so i don't see a point in it since there is literally no difference between it and QHD if you compare them.
