After tons of teasing, rumors, and a few leaks, LG has finally unwrapped its 2017 flagship smartphone — the long-anticipated G6. Imbued with the hopes to reimburse G5's shaken market positions due to the lackluster G5, the G6 is a phone that drops all the controversial gimmicks in favor of all the essentialities that make a good device.
It has a flashy new design with rather high screen-to-body size ratio, full metal build, and the good ol' dual setup that's already beginning to qualify as a signature feature of LG's top-end phones, the G6 seems like it's employing the winning formula.
In terms of size, the G6 measures at 148.9 x 71.9 x 7.9mm, which is exceptional for a device with a 5.7-inch display. This works out a screen-to-body ratio of roughly 78.37%, which is rather good. To put things in perspective, we've decided to compare this one with the 5.3-inch LG G5, which stands at 149.4mm and is actually taller than the G6, the 5.7-inch LG V20 which towers the latter at 159.7mm, and a couple of other hot devices while we're at it!

But the camera has yet to truly impress me. Yes, it takes decent shots from what I've seen so far, but can it beat what's already out there? And can it match the camera performance of LG's top phone so far? Perhaps this camera comparison will help us answer these questions. The devices we've chosen to compete against the LG G6 are the Galaxy S7 edge, the iPhone 7 Plus, and the LG V20...

26 FebruaryLG G6 vs G5: User interface differences, a visual comparisonAs the story goes, every major Android smartphone manufacturer has their own user interface on top of Google's operating system to separate themselves from the pack. And with every big smartphone release, the UI is evolved further — features are added and visuals get a facelift. After all, we can't have software looks staying the same, while hardware design evolves further.
26 FebruaryLG explains why it dislikes curved display panels, and why there isn't one on the G6The biggest design trend in phones this year is going to involve manufacturers using massive display panels, while shrinking the bezels around them to almost nonexistence. LG is first out of the gate with exactly such a proposition: its 2017 flagship, the G6, is ready to roll, and guess what – it's rocking a stunning 5.7" screen in the body of a phone no bigger than last year's 5.3" G5!
