Is it possible that LG is positioning this phone as a fashion phone and status symbol rather than a flagship phone? And then let the V series be the true flagship?
I agree that the LG G6 has crappy specifications. I can't imagine how a typical regular of this site would have any love for it. But what about the masses in Verizon store? They evaluate phones differently than we do.
Meanwhile, the V series has been well received on this forum.
JackTheIPhoneKiller, 07 Feb 2017As I predicted earlier, this is a failed product even before launch. Jack, if the chip-set gives out to be the Snapdragon 821, then you be the man. However, if by chance LG gets their hands on some Snapdragon 835's ....this could be fun to watch. The diff then of the phones would be the quality of the camera, battery life and how the phone handles Android Nougat 7.0 and it's many features. With that, keep in mind that LG V20 has been out some months with similar features and is selling well.
As I predicted earlier, this is a failed product even before launch.
TechGirl90, 06 Feb 2017I am not disappointed in the slightest about this news, I know these angry comments are going ... moreWell said.
I agree with everything they said.
Especially about the G4 bootlooping and not offering a real solution like Samsung did with the note 7.
And about the second chance, well, they kinda don't deserve it since they never fixed that issue and still continues with the G5 and V10.
That really pisses me off and to be honest, I'm hesitant to buy another LG phone again.
Lg G6 looks good...if priced right and amazing hardware...they can have a winner mobile phone....they can launch another version of G6 with sd 835 in 3 or 6 months after launch
LG G6 launches so close to Samsung Galaxy S8 despite even not having SD835 SoC probably is to test the waters for it's new form factor of going water proof & wireless charging etc... "by ditching removable battery", to see if this is the right strategy for it's true major flagship the V30 to come later.
I am not disappointed in the slightest about this news, I know these angry comments are going to come concerning this decision and also concerning this stupid argument about using the SD821 instead of the SD835.
We need to understand something, the unfortunate reality is whether LG launches the G6 early or later, it will still get overshadowed by Samsung's Products, and it sucks, it really sucks.
People will automatically gravitate towards Samsung's product, because of
There's alot to blame concerning the estate of each OEM (besides Samsung and Apple) and I'm talking specifically about the products that are available in the US.
Some people may get upset for what I'm about to say but the blame for me goes towards
1.The Media (Tech Bloggers/Vloggers included)
2. Mobile Carriers not equally pushing all the oem's product at the level of Samsung and Apple's Products, you go into either a AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint Store, what is the first thing that is thrown in our faces? Samsung flyers, Apple flyers, their display section dwarfs others. Also every time a Carrier is on the TV or the Radio, it mentions Samsung or Apple.
3. Upon Mobile Carriers not equally pushing all OEM'S products, you have the employees who lie to the customers saying that this Samsung/Apple Device is the best device ever, no other one matters (now I know that it effects your commission positively, but it still isn't right).
4. LG takes some blame, sure they may not have the advertising revenue at the level of Samsung, but they still could've marketed their past products better, not using stupid internet memes like Damn Daniel, or a Epic Bottle Flip, and not using a million Jason Stathams, those ads didn't really showcase their device, they didn't really handle the LG G4 bootloop situation well either unfortunately.
5. Us, Me, You, we have to be held accountable as well, granted the LG G4 bootloop was awful, I was a victim of the bootloop, and ever since that happen the grudge is still there, every time a new device from LG is ready to be released I see this comment alot in the section.
There also seems to be a double standard I noticed concerning Samsung and LG, the Galaxy Note 7 situation was dangerous.
Samsung did well to take it off the shelves (the second time, the first time was sloppy) and apologized to the public (let's be honest though, like any corporation, they really did that to save their own backsides and keep away from any lawsuits).
LG chose another outlet to solve the bootloop issue by giving users a free replacement(still executed sloppy though)
LG messed up with the G4 bootloop, I see no second chance given.
Samsung messed up with the Galaxy Note 7 battery issue, they are still given a chance, I don't think that's right that lg gets knocked off but Samsung (an already dominating OEM) still gets another shot.
Alot of us don't think for ourselves either, we put in our minds to let the Tech Bloggers/Vloggers decide what device to go for, instead of us going out there to test and see for ourselves.
Just because one experience goes well with that user, doesn't mean it will fare the same with Us, Me, You.
I Hope LG is serious this time and goes all the way in reliability, Advertising(smartly), and reasonable pricing (honestly no phone should be 750-950 expensive).
If you reached this statement here, Congratulations, you're at the end of my Thoughts.😊
Zhic3ger, 06 Feb 2017Batery is minimum 3200 mah.maximum 3500mahNope, LG needs at least 3500mah because of their bad optimisation.
Subham09, 06 Feb 2017another flop is coming ..😥 may be even disaster!😂Be matured.
SD821 is not outdated, it's released in oktober 2016. In real life use we will not feel much difference compared with the SD835 chip. I rather have LG save money on the chip and invest it in the camera...
If the camera produces flagshipphone quality pictures and videos, I will buy it.
Waiting for the DxOMark testresults....
Claudiu.Lucian, 06 Feb 2017g5 was no legend either with the weird design and cameras...at least 7 plus does awesome portr... moreand your 7 plus is a combination of copied innovation from other OEMS so don't talk sh!t here. its a shame to have a phone that came from other innovation.
4000mah battery minimum is needed for the G6.
.... To compensate for killing of removable battery.
Everything looks good in G6 ... but I'll be waiting the G6 Pro ..
Subham09, 06 Feb 2017another flop is coming ..😥 may be even disaster!😂g5 was no legend either with the weird design and cameras...at least 7 plus does awesome portraits, macros and zoom... Not a eyefish option
Yeah, they should have postponed clearly and maybe add a atractive new feature in the spare time.
