But LG should definitely do more aggressively advertising, it's a superb phone that deserves to be on everyone's radar when looking for a new phone.

It is a flaw in LCD and LED based (including AMOLED, OLED, etc) panels in general. I think, and I am not fully certain, that the only panel now that isn't, is quantum dot or QLED, which hasn't made it onto phones (Samsung only has it on their premium TVs)
When is it gonna be updated this review with the final firmware?
I ask because it's been 2 months since this review was published and I'd like to see the final results (battery, benchmarks.....)

HTC, do, but their TV and print ads are terrible. Samsung's latest for the S8 that features what looks like a chunky old design phone screen being banged into the size of the S8 screen by the characters in a video is superb!

No ghosting images on LG G6 and highly doubt any will show up until at least 6mos down the road.
My friend is going to sell hers b/c it started to bootloop. All the haters were right about bootloops.
No I'm not serious.
*trollololol* Her phone did not bootloop. She's selling it b/c it has no LED notification, battery life got really really inconsistent the past week ever since she paired it with her watch, and b/c sadly the selfie cam really does suck in low light for her. Ughs. Now she wanted iPhone. Poor thing. Broke her heart to let her know iPhone doesn't have LED Notifier and no headphone jack. Looks like soon enough I'm going to have another friend with a Sony Xperia soon.
I would prefer the G6 over the S8. I just love the G6 design. But there are some things that annoy me. Firstly, most people who go for a new phone are told by salesmen to purchase the S8, as how it is in retail shops, as how it is on webshops. Enter a mobile phone selling webshop the first two phones you see is either an iPhone, or the newest Samsung. iPhones or Samsungs, period. Secondly, since the LG G6 came out here, I have seen exaclty zero ads on tv, on the streets -billboards- or wherever ads can be found. Since the S8 came out here, I have seen tons of ads, mainly on TV, but also billboards, showing the S8.
The fact that for many people the G6 might be the better choice, is completely obsolete because of advertising. Should LG be as agressive in advertising as Samsung? I think so, LG Electronics has the money for it.

I really wanted to buy lg LG G6 but LG policies in specific countries and markets is terrible, and embittered, I went out and bought S7
Phone on the black market can be bought for almost a month for 560 euros, while in official channels does not exist and without any indication when it will appear.
Can anyone confirm the G6 does not have the screen retention/ghosting problem like some of its other phones?
How to duplicate:
1. Open a cpu intensive app with static on screen elements like the camera app with its setting icons down the side. 3D games with scoreboards at the top work good too.
2. Use the app for at least 10 minutes until phone is hot.
3. Close the app.
4. Open something dark grey to fill the whole screen.
5. Check for screen retention. You might still be able to faintly or clearly see the camera settings icons or game scoreboard on the grey/dark background.

One of the most useful inventions. Helps with privacy, battery life and general convenience. It's the lack of wireless charging on the UK version stopping me getting a G6, but this now means I won't get one even from import. Sticking with my Note5 until the Note8 is released then.
I am referring to H870DS (dual sim). Can someone confirm or deny 3G support SIM2 not only 2G?
I'd like to know from any G6 owners who had the G5 and now you have a G6 and what's your thoughts on it compared to the old G5.
Would you say it's better or do you think it's worth just sticking with the G5.
The best android flagship combined with the V20, this is a beautiful device I recommend to buy it. Especially with the discounted prices.
I am using one and finally LG has something to show off. I am sure a red one will come out soon
10 days now using the awesome Lg G6 ...i must say 1 of the best andriod phone right now...
Killer screen.... Built quality... Easy-to-hold ...love the dual camera... And wide angle one is a beauty..
Battery life is like 2 days for me with 5 to 6 hrs SOT... I love the flat screen.. Last year I had the s7 edge and holding the phone with out cover was a pain...
I have 64gb version with hi-fi dac... And the OS is super smooth...
