Description

The LG G6 marks a departure from the previous experimental designs the company was known for. Gone are modular phones and leather backs, and instead, the LG G6 is a stylish and durable phone with a trendy glass body and a metal frame. It features a high level of water and dust protection - a first for a globally available LG phone - and the body has been designed to withstand more than a few encounters with the floor. But what's more obvious is the fact that nearly all of the phone's front is occupied by a 5.7-inch display with a 18:9 aspect ratio, the goal being to create a big-screen phone that's usable with one hand. Other notable features include the dual camera setup at the back, with a standard 13MP shooter acompanied by a wide-angle camera using the same image sensor.

This device is also known as LG H870, LG LS993, LG H872, LG H871, LG VS988, LG US997

Good phone, not for gaming
Phone owned for more than a year

This is a good phone, I had it for more than 4 years. The 2 main problems were: LG took too much time to update it and gaming after 10 minutes it start to heat up so the phone throttles down.
Despite that I had no problem at all.

Pretty good phone.
Phone owned for less than 3 months

I got this phone used around 2 months ago. I'm using it on Lucky Mobile in Canada, but mine is unlocked. The new theme on Android 9 is pretty nice, and the 4K Camera is amazing. The glass back feels amazing compared to the aluminum & plastic backs on older phones. The fingerprint sensor gets dirty easily, you will need to clean it every couple months. Don't use always on display, it causes really really bad battery life. If you have weak internet, the internet may cut out if you cover the top right corner. It runs games quite well. The front camera is pretty bad though.

Terrible after a few months usage
Phone owned for more than a year

It was a great phone for a few months, by the year mark where warrenty doesn't cover my phone it started to thermal throttle, over heat and drain super quickly. I was really hoping I could get it fixed for a decent price but at $200
