Expensive handbags cost over £500-1000 need a drop test. Wallet and purses need drop test. Laptop need a drop test. Jewelleries need drop test. Plates and pots need drop test. Vase and ceramic item need drop test. Cups and glasses need drop test. Even rockets and airplanes need drop test, right? Because it make sense?
All of those things is as expensive as a smartphone yet they DONT need drop test. You know why?! Because drop test is STUPID!

I personal drop my Xperia Z2 many time in 3years usage, so drop test is important not because careless more important is how sturdy is the phone for it pricing and avoid any major damage in drop impacts.
TechGirl90, 26 Mar 2017Please explain to me how the price of the LG G6 is a major letdown??
It's 650 on T-Mobile
... moreamazon ....
LG G6 H870 32GB (FACTORY UNLOCKED) 5.7" QHD $ 969 99
FREE Shipping on eligible orders
LG G5 Unlocked Phone, 32 GB Titan $ 367
And it's pathetic if you consider the fact that LG G6 is a downgrade, a worse phone than G5.
Android Modder, 27 Mar 2017dont joke here dude. lg phones are as good as samsung phones everyone who uses it knows it. an... moreNo one's complaining about the LG G6? What planet you been on! I have seen plenty of people complaining about there 2017 flagship price for 2016's hardware!
Something else to consider, The sales of this phone will reflect it as well, My advice to you is to wait for LG V30!
Please if your trying to defend LG by saying SD 821 is a good processor for a 2017 flagship your off your trolley!
I suppose nobody wants the SD835 chip bearing in mind 40% more power efficient nobody wants that do they..............
ha!. fanboys everywhere. or girls. whatever. dont like it? dont buy it.
indeed its quite expensive for its internals. but it looks so sexy than the xz premium imo.
premium means top specs and materials. but top doesnt mean best of the best. can mean 2nd or 3rd. i know you know my point here. not all lgs are premium. or even all the samsungs and apple. samsung got budget phones while apple once made the ip5c.
Despise those who always attack a new product by mentioning the past history. This will not help their beloved brands, but only to show their jealousy.
BobD, 27 Mar 2017bootloop? g5 and v20 don't have any booloopsOh really, LG G5 and V20 doesn't suffering with that so called "bootloop"?
I just don't wrote comments like a typical folks, I do research first before I did it.

Smartphone is not made for drop test. Its made for calling. Phone are slowly losing its purposes. People just want an indestructible brick that take picture like dslr and can play heavy games.
BobD, 27 Mar 2017bootloop? g5 and v20 don't have any booloopsSome sarcastic people just couldn't find anything bad about it, so what they could say is just bootloop. Have pity on them.
This time LG G6 and Samsung S8 is the weakest flagship, I suggest Gsmarena must perform the drop test review, you all will know slim bezel is weaker for large screen smartphone.
foneluva, 27 Mar 2017Listen here man, you don't pay full price for old hardware, capiche? As much as I dislike Appl... moreFirst of all, Listen here Foneluva, I'm not a man, as you can clearly see my Username confirms what my Gender is.
Secondly, you don't know what options I take in purchasing my devices, so don't assume.
Thirdly, the SD821 is not even a year old yet, it's 7 months old as far as consumer availability is concerned (ASUS Zenfone 3 Deluxe debuted back in August), and your argument still holds no water, because you don't know if the SD835 will even be a good Chipset, you're just blinded by it's Specifications and making your purchasing decision based off of that, which is not a smart buying method if you ask me, but hey, that's on you.
Fourth and Finally, the iPhone 7 compared to Android Devices would be considered to some as having mediocre specs, but will still draw a Mass Crowd, that right there should tell you Specs is not what sells, it's the Marketing behind the Device, that's how Samsung and Apple are so successful, it's not because their Devices are necessarily better than their Competitors, they just have one thing on their side and that's Marketing.
Sent from my Unlocked HTC 10 that I bought full price with my own money.
MKL, 27 Mar 2017After looking at Samsung's​ S8 price (if it's true) LG started to shine even more.*Sony Xperia XZ Premium pre-order for £649*

Those two are both Major Corporations, LG is competitive to Samsung and can be compared to them, if they wasn't, Samsung wouldn't release an S8 Ad 3 weeks from their annoucement to try and draw the attention away from the LG G6 that is selling VERY WELL in their homeland.
Don't ever try to tell me what I should and shouldn't comment, this is the comment section, where opinions are exchanged, I don't care if you disagree with my comments, that's your prerogative, but don't advise me on what I should and shouldn't comment.

LG got the following:
1.premium product testing = what standard they have so it become premium?
2. premium algorithm on their product = it android right? what premium then? Samsung Android, Google Android, Nokia Android, Huawei android.
3. premium and original product design = really? now look is more importand then spec and overall performance? Remember, old chipset, old cam sensor, 72 h battery rating.
4. premium parts = wow! SD821? Old cam sonsor? how about samsung, huawei, sony, apple, google?
5. premium service = God damn, how can premium service come to $800/unit device?
6. premium users = buy LG and you will become premium user lol
Romie Lee, 27 Mar 2017Then good luck with bootloop!bootloop? g5 and v20 don't have any booloops
Advantages of using Snapdragon 835, Bluetooth 5, 10nm which is battery efficient, 1GB download speeds which quiet unnecessary for now. The list goes on....

LG got the following
1.premium product testing
2. premium algorithm on their product
3. premium and original product design
4. premium parts
5. premium service
6. premium users and
7. premium brand
If only they didn't ruin the camera.. instead of two small sensors, I'd rather have one that is decent. 14nm chipset also screams "budget". It's a shame Huaweii has significantly better these days. It seems like LG threw down the gloves but couldn't swallow their pride and still priced it like a flagship hoping some people buy it. I like the design, that's why I voted "hot", as I didn't want to send the wrong message, but my vote was taken as if I actually thought the phone was great.
