Here's how easy it is to switch to an LG G6 (from an iPhone, or another Android phone)
LG this week released a bunch of videos showcasing how easy it is to switch from an older smartphone (and transfer your data) to the company's G6 flagship handset.

As you can see for yourself in LG's new videos (embedded below) you can switch from Android handsets (including LG ones) either wirelessly, or with the help of a USB cable. This isn't the case when switching from an iPhone - you can't make the switch wirelessly, so you'll definitely need a cable. 

Anyhow, the process is fairly simple regardless of your older smartphone, although, if you have a non-LG Android device, you'll first need to download LG's Mobile Switch app on it (available for free on Google Play).

We liked the LG G6 when we reviewed it back in March, so we assume that there are (or there will be) plenty of customers interested in switching to it.

A little off topic, but why can't LG and Sammy offer a dual boot to give stock Android without rooting?
