choa noa, 24 Jan 2017This is a monopoly by samsung, that other manufacturers do not have the snapdragon 835Lol wish that s8 happened to explode the chipset then discontinue s8 hahaha
Dearest LG+knowledge enthusiasts.Frankly speaking to stay away from the fates of G4 and G5 and just forgetting them as once they were LG flagship,LG must start 2017 with independent guidelines criteria!!From the top to bottom of this rumored G6,some modifications must have been done before its reach to the markets!!! 5.7 inches with 89% bezel to body radio is a must!!Galliano in GPS makes the works complete,Using Bluetooth 5 is beautiful but no deficits of auxiliaries for a 2017 flagship is permissible!!!Dearest LG what was wrong if LG K10 could have come with FHD resolution and better 4.2 Bluetooth+5important auxiliaries nevertheless its WiFi as a midrange affordable class with 3500 mAh and some other modifications could have been the most selling midrange class of 2017!!!Why not!!!?Though I don't understand some illogical whys!!!Thanks LG for reading recommendations and I expect fact-writing fact-following GSMArea in its previews mentions the deficits,advantages and disadvantages of any brands regardless of their power and influence VERY Bravely!Thanks every mentioned and unmentioned names!Justice Rights.Omid12Omidvar..,.
LG G6 is nice to look at compared to Galaxy S8 because g6 has a flat screen and thin while s8 has curve screen which is ugly, only downside with LG is it has no 5.1in screen. Bigger Screen not good in hand.
The next LG mediocre flagship. LG needed a big win to have a chance at regaining any market share. You can't drive marketing of flagship devices on last year's CPU. They could have waited until 2nd quarter and obtained the Snapdragon 835/830 but instead they think launching before Samsung with the 821 will do it. It won't. So add the G6 to the G4 debacle and the lackluster G5. I also understand wanting a watertight device but LG loyalists relied upon the ability to change out power cells. I haven't once taken my device swimming nor toilet dunking. So LG will launch another subpar flagship and give Samsung more dominance.
Haa! here comes G6 nothing special nothing new!! Guessing G6 will be a flop from LG as well !
I wish LG G6 would still have a removable battery. Thank you planned obsolescence! Phone will never survive 2 years again. Battery are only good for 500 charges.

LG G6 should take on the MediaTek Helio X30 because it's a good alternative to S835, X30 is also 10nm & performs similarly to S835. OEM's like HTC, MEIZU, OPPO & many others uses MediaTek Helio chipsets on their best flagship smmartphones too.
Torrr, 23 Jan 2017Why 5.3"!!! Just make it firggen 5.5!!!I think on other sites it says it will have 5'7 screen.Also the looks are similar to S8.Google "LG G6", friend and you will be surprised how great G6 looks.
jan V20, 23 Jan 2017No sd835,,G6 will use sd821Agreed.Also on many sites confirm that the reason why it won't have SD 835 is that Samsung called dips on it 1st.
Torrr, 23 Jan 2017Why 5.3"!!! Just make it firggen 5.5!!!The G2 size was perfect , then all the g-series came out and all of them were huge . If LG will make a decent size high end smartphone this year can beat Samsung ( Samsung will not have homme button and will be giant) .
Torrr, 23 Jan 2017Why 5.3"!!! Just make it firggen 5.5!!!I agree. LG bezels are pretty poor though so I expect this 5.3" to be similar overall dimensions as the 6.3" S8 Plus (roughly S7 Edge size). Hence Samsung having the edge (mind the pun) here.
If I finally can buy a waterproof mobile (not the deceptive "splash-proof"), with a removable battery, I will buy the LG G6 no matter the cost. My mobile now is five years old and it's simply becoming too old. :/ I've even been considering the CAT S60, but while the infrared scanner is amazing, its resolution is simply too poor. If LG no longer understands the importance of a removable battery, so that people won't be forced to buy equipment with a best-before date, then unfortunately, I will have to wait for the inevitably upcoming CAT S70. It will likely be a rather fat mobile, but as long as it continues to have a removable battery and waterproofing, CAT will be the ones to get my money. And an infrared scanner will be quite fun and usable, too, anyway.
happy that LG will keep the headphone jack , and more good if LG will trim there G6 phone to 5.1 in. PERFECT and more Durable and Heavy Duty button at the back......
