I just don't understand why they didn't include wireless charging, SD 835 (Or it's true that Samsung took all 835s from Qualcomm and leave None for LG as GSMArena reported earlier?), and None-removable battery, and WTF with Gorilla Glass 3 on Front and 5 on back?
Always-on feature on an IPS display? Isn't that a mistake in the specs?
This is a 2016 flagship with an odd shaped screen, little more.
LG have dropped the ball here, unless they get really aggressive with the pricing.
The HTC ultra is still the best. I was expecting the LG g6 to be better than the HTC u ultra. The LG g6 is good but not as we expected. Let's see what the Samsung s8 and the HTC 11 will bring.
lol, 26 Feb 2017clearly the looks, cpu, and battery usage is going to be won by the S8, but true, G6 build see... more1/3" sensor size, can never be really nice
besides ALL smartphone producers REFUSE to install a Quality GLASS lens
Sony leading the way, they think to settle images in the software..NOT
After so many fails from LG in the past years now they are playing it safe with the design, but the specs are just not there with 2017. You can buy a cheaper One Plus 3T with the same specs. Even a S7 can compete with the G6 no problem, and with the introduction of S8 for sure the S7 will have a drop in price.
So, for all LG fans out there why buy a 2017 flagship with 2017 price, but with 2016 specs? Just because they are innovating (from LG point of view) the design?
Not worth it..
I taught LG g6 will be better. but HTC ultra is still the best. let's see what Samsung s8 and HTC 11 will bring.
I did not say LG 6 is not good. it is good but we did not see what we expected.
i just want to say that the black color looks elegant and cool. that's all!
G6, no laser-autofocus, wireless charging only us version, QUAD DAC Only Korea.
Lol. V20 is better.
Actually, I like the phone. The white one is pretty. The black one is good. The design is great, still a bit more elegant compared to phones like Mi Mix and some S8 leaks. Phone width at 71mm is perfect despite the large 5.7" screen. Waterproofing is great. The display seems to be not a concern as all first impressions are positive. Battery life seems pretty promising with 3300 mAh. However, I'm kind of worried on the camera side of things. Smaller sensor than the G5, really? But I'm pretty positive that it's not the case as it seems that the 1/3" size was just a baseless guess.
If the camera turns to be good and considerably cheaper than the S8, I think it's time to upgrade.
Well , they are gambling on their reputation with these specs.You put last year's specs into a flagship device that's fine as long as you compensate the customers with something else,for example battery what is wrong with a slightly thicker body and a 4000 mah? absolutely nothing.SD 821 is a great performer and 4 gb of ram isn't too bad either,but man the battery capacity is not that good.
Good Job L G But still they could have just implemented modularity with a little mix like how motorola did it. Its good but that Snapdragon 821 chip and 4GB of ram make it feel like a device of the past. Clearly in specs terms Samsung is going to beat the LG G6 with the S8 and S8+. I hope that samsung does a good job this year. Anyways Goodluck with the G6 LG. But I cannot blame them since samsung the the manufacturer of the Qualcomm snapdragon, samsung have privileges against other manufacturers.
Probably the worst upgrade in mobile history. Basically is just SCREEN & WATER RESISTANCE. No stereo speakers, no 6GB RAM, no 64GB standard, no SD835 etc, only 5MP front, only 13MP main, - removable battery & more. Really SHAME TO LG.
i feel like samsung is doing a market stagedy, cuz they help qualcomm to make the 835 so they can have the 835 first giving them an advantage to other companies so phones released earlier than the s8 will have 821 rather than 835 and giving the s8 sounds better on paper than other phones released at MWC including the g6 since they lost billion dollars and actually second on Q4 2016 giving apple the crown but it wont be that long since the stagedy of samsung is make their phone sounds and look better on paper than other flagship phones this year but we all know log has the V series, Xiaomi releasing its pinecone chipset so no problems, also with huawei with the kirin so LG will have the 835 in late 2017
Oscar, 25 Feb 2017If the battery is not removable and without Radio, LG5 will be my last LG mobile.Get the V20. Perosnally I like the V series more than the G as of now. Only thing is I really refer compact phones. So if ever they brought the v34 here, I would get it.
Assassin21, 26 Feb 2017It's confirmed Qualcomm Snapdragon 821, such a disappointmentSD821 is not outdated. It's released in oktober 2016. In real life use you will not see much difference between SD821 and SD835, except maybe in batterylife. But the price of a phone with SD835 chip will be more expensive..
