LG G6 price unveiled in Europe


We now finally know the price of the LG G6, one of the most anticipated Android phones of the first half of the year, in Europe.

The full retail price of the LG G6 is set at €750 in Europe's largest market Germany, according to a listing of the phone on big box retailer MediaMarkt. You can currently pre-order the phones in one of its three color versions: a white, a platinum gold and a black one.

To better understand the LG G6 pricing, we are comparing it to the price of other high-end phones of a similar caliber:


The euro to US dollar rate stands at around 1.07 at the time of this writing, in case you were wondering.

Clearly, we can see that LG is pricing its new G6 flagship lower than the cost of a new iPhone or a Google Pixel, yet still on par with companies like HTC and Huawei. 

In the United States, the LG G6 will be available on all four major carriers, and we have already seen webpages offering pre-registration for the anticipated phone go live, but you cannot yet pre-order the phone. Pricing the United States, will likely follow the model we see in Europe: the G6 will likely be slightly more affordable than flagships, if not initially, than via various offers in the near future.

750 for last year's processor, 5% more screen than the S7 and no Oled ? Good luck LG, cause the S8 is coming soon.

Correction: 750 for a processor that is only 7 months old as far as consumer availability is concerned and is still very capable and is still the latest Tech available (Xperia XZ premium with the Snapdragon 835 is not available until late May/early June). Stop beating a dead horse, what's done is done, LG is not going to halt production of the LG G6 just to put in a newer processor that's been boasted about ON paper, not really knowing how this SOC will perform in reality, just blinded by it's Specs. You think LG would be affected negatively in sales since they choose to continue to use LCD Technology instead of OLED?? If that was the case, then Apple's iPhone (which uses LG's Display Panels) wouldn't get any sales.

Not sure how mentioning the exception that is Apple is going to prove your point. LG barely sells phone and can't even compete with the likes of Oppo...

Wrong comparison, since LG directly competes with all other high end Android phones (of which most have OLED by now), while Apple mostly competes with... itself.

Performance level is still the same as Snapdragon 820, very minor changes. In fact depending on the level throttling it could be worse then many Snapdragon 820 devices. So he's right and you're wrong.

I agree wow the S7 edge cost less than the G6 when it was released and its even cheaper now, I rather have one of them than the G6. Bigger battery, cheaper price, fast auto focusing camera, rated as the 2nd best camera.

I don't know about Europe, but the S7Edge was a lot more expensive than that when it was released. I feel like these are current prices for the devices and of course every device price drops after launch...except for iPhones which don't drop until shortly before the next iPhone iteration is released. In fact, looking at Phone Arena's own S7Edge site shows a release price of $799 for the S7Edge. So the price listed here is what it is currently being sold for which makes sense because it's nearly a year old phone. Which means the S8 will probably be $850 or more...just wait and see.

Well that last years processor is still the FLAGSHIP you idiot. And it has a gorges 2:1 display and it's a first. It has all the other features S7 had like wireless charging, water resistance, beautiful shiny glass and metal build, SD card support. And it even has dual camera setup thus more zooming capabilities than even the upcoming S8. And it is priced way less than what is S8 gonna be. LG G6 got great reviews already. Oled tech is way over hyped anyway in my opinion. I appreciate true to life colors than blown up fake cartoon colors anyway.

Even the Sony Xperia XZ Premium is a more worthy buy for the same price.

Why? Because of the XZ Premium's Snapdragon 835 SoC? Nah... Sony's camera ain't nothing compared to LG's, and the G6 beats the XZ Premium I'm aesthetics. Yay, for the heavy users, the XZ Premium is a better option due to it's superior SoC... But the G6 remains the all-around better phone.

Sony has the best hardware, the camera sensor is industry leading. HOWEVER, Sony messed up software optimization like always which yields worse results. Give the same sensor to Samsung or Apple, and the pictures would be way better than on Xperias

Before the DOA comment becomes manifest, keep in mind that a vast majority of Consumers purchase Smartphones under an agreement of the Mobile Carrier in down payments, thus making the complaint about a high price moot. Now if you purchase your Smartphones at full price on a Carrier or Unlocked, then I can see this being an issue.

No, not moot, because in Europe (which this topic is about), those higher prices normally result in higher monthly payments too.

31. TechGirl90 unregistered

With all due respect, I'm very much aware of what the topic is about, the reason I mentioned the above was because when you convert Euro to USD, the price is still high, and will not fare well with some folks, I only looked deeper into the topic that was at hand, and not only on the surface, True, it does result in higher monthly payments, but at the same time it still won't be as much if you were doing down payments because the full price of the Device (plus tax) is divided into 12 or 24 Months. But really, in all actuality, in the end once that device is payed off, you have spent double on what you did if you were to buy the device Unlocked or Full Priced on a Carrier.

Pass... But "delivery in 9-10 working days" like they say on the MediaMarkt web site is quite a bit sooner than I expected for Europe deliveries.

Same thing that happens every year. G6 comes out has a good camera weak battery and then Samsung releases their flagship with better camera, better display, better battery. Samsung sells more, LG sells alot less. Next year rinse and repeat :D

Now I see how stupid LG guys are. Ones in ages they managed to release a good device but asking a crazy price nobody is willing to pay. So if they were going to put a crazy price tag on G6 when there was no reason to make a good phone, because it doesn't matter why people are not buying your products: either they are not so good or just overpriced. LG first needs to establish it's name, reputation and respect among consumers willing to buy flagship model instead of trying to match price tag of other well known manufacturers who already established themselves on flagship device market.

XZP is the cheapest flagship of the first H with most complete specs list (major brands)

To be honest, if we ignore the design, the best bang for the buck right now is the Galaxy S7 Edge or even the regular S7 (which you can get for 450 EUR). The S7 Edge is basically better than the G6 in most practical aspects: VR, OLED, battery capacity and stamina, front-mounted fingerprint sensor, dual-pixel main camera with large pixels and F1.7. Even the Samsung always-on display is now better than LG simply because it's brighter and lately it has become much more efficient via updates. The only thing missing from the S7/Edge is an always-on fingerprint scanner.

Well, that's overpriced, but why all hails OLED displays? It's defective technology with inevitably dying pixels, u always afraid of static images (and they are everywhere, Twitter status bar, games elements) and than get burn-in and ghost images.

Which OLED burn-in are you talking about? This is 2017, buddy... not 2011.
