Watch the LG G6 survive a Mouse Trap like adventure and come out unscathed

Remember the game Mouse Trap? The idea was to put together a wacky Rube Goldberg-esque contraption piece by piece, depending on the roll of the dice. This weekend, LG released a video that shows the LG G6 being put through a number of obstacles while certain features appear on screen. It's an interesting way to show off the durability of the handset, while confirming some of the specs and capabilities of LG's new flagship phone to consumers.

Some of the features highlighted in the video include the IP68 certification rating which allows the device to be submerged to as deep as nearly 5-feet for as long as 30-minutes, and emerge unscathed. The phone passed 14 different military tests and a straight drop of 3-feet, proving that it could survive a fall. It also will live through temperatures as cold as -4 degrees Fahrenheit to as high as 140 degrees Fahrenheit. With Quick Charging 3.0, the battery is charged to 50% in just 35 minutes. And the maximum temperature of the LG G6 after charging is 95.09 degrees Fahrenheit, so you shouldn't have to worry about it overheating while plugged in

If you want to see the LG G6  survive an entertaining test in the lab, click on the video at the top of this story. It certainly looks like LG has built a better mouse trap.

They already showed that glass designs weren't fragile back in the GS6 days. I dropped it a few times and nothing , not a scratch.

That actually kind of pisses me off. They mention "no camera bump" on the G6. Well I got the V20, which had a HUGE camera bump, and only a 3200 mAh battery. The battery life wasn't very good for me. If they'd made the phone a bit thicker, and given it a bigger battery, like 4000 mAh, it would've been an AMAZING phone. That was literally my only complaint about the phone.

"Watch the LG G6 survive a Mouse Trap like adventure and come out unscathed" .... "come out unscathed" of course it will be unscathed, since the one that come in is totally different unit with the one come out.. and most of test isn't even legit.. they use around twenty G6, and most of them only take 1 test.. still.. that's a neat commercial..

Quit whining about such a small thing man, you know a single handset has survived all those test and it's no secret that LG actually builds pretty durable phones. G6 vs S8 in a durability test and I'll bet my money on the G6 every time.
