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.
