LG G6 Q&A: Ask us anything!

Our LG G6 review is now live, exploring almost everything there is to LG's bezel-busting new flagship, which introduces a host of novelties to the scene. We have a few issues with the device, namely its last-year chipset and gimmicky camera features, but with these aside, the G6 is a rather promising phone that will hardly let you down in any area. 

Or, as we said in our review, "The LG G6 is a phone that wears its ambition on its sleeve." Rightly so!

Got anything to ask us that has not been addressed in our review? Well, be our guest! We'd be happy to answer any question you might have to the best of our ability. You can do that in the comments section right below and we will answer these in a couple of days' time in a separate post.

Question: How does the G6's 18:9 aspect ratio fare when viewing videos which are tailored for the standard 16:9? Any sort of distortion?

@Phonearena - When will you fix the broken COMMENTS system??? The replies are still not working properly. Please give us an estimate on when this will be fixed. It's extremely annoying.

why does the review lack tests and details that used to be present in previous reviews like screen test, cpu/gpu benchmarks, battery benchmarks ...

My guess is because it is a pre-production unit. Probably not allowed to review battery/performance on a pre-production review sample.

"Probably not allowed to review battery/performance on a pre-production review sample." Well, if reviewing battery life and performance (benchmarks) of a prep-roduction unit isn't allowed, then giving a pre-production unit a score (or rating) should logically not be alowed as well... Because it's a unit which isn't ready for prime time, and which hasn't been fully reviewed in the first place... FFS.

Perhaps because it's their preference? Or maybe because everyone isn't an Apple or Samsung fanboy like you are.

I noticed the G6 lets you alter content resolution. Can you explain the difference between how the same apps look in 16:9 , (17.5:9?) and 18:9?

Why did you guys decide to post a Review on a Pre-production Unit instead of waiting for the Final Unit for a fair analysis?
