BVS, 17 Feb 2017The Snapdragon 835 won't be available in large quantities until after the Samsung Galaxy S8 la... moreSD821 is not outdated.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...
zdzdz, 26 Feb 2017Nooooooooo. Where is the IR blaster? I need it.Same here, I need it too. That's why I still got my Note4.
No IR blaster.
Quad DAC / FM radio / Wireless charging - market dependent.
The whole market dependent "idea" is what makes companies lose customers; money.
Had high hopes for this, now waiting to see S8 / S8+ & Note8.
I'll wait for the V30.. my V20 has better specs than the G6. for a flashship device you would think they would have not rushed it to market. 32 gb and a 256 sd card? No removable battery. The V30 will blow this phone away.
I like this better than the previous G versions.. combination of metal & glass definitely made this phone a premium one... I just do hope they would release soon an upgraded version with SoC 835...
My next phone have to have wireless charging in 2017 , so this will not be my phone . here in middle east. LG , just sell it to US persons.
I really wish LG did away with the home screen app thing rather than the App Drawer. If I wanted all my apps littered across the home screen, I would buy an iphone. The app drawer cleans the interface up. Dissapointed to hear about the lack of removable battery, but glad to see SD card and headphone jack (on top of device). I'll stick to the V phones, they are the best to offer since they have it all, including SD card, removable battery, headphone, ticker screen, camera, and amazing software. I hope LG doesn't screw up the V30.
Mobilemaster, 26 Feb 2017They had no choice, because Samsung will use all of the new SD 835 chipsets on the S8. Others ... moreI am aware of the reasoning behind it, but still, this give LG a very slim chance of getting great sales on this phone. So gg samsung.
It's really filthy play though, but I understand it,samsung is by far the biggest buyer for those chips.
Lex79, 23 Feb 2017LG need a hit, but even getting to market first is not going to be enough to give this an edge... moreI wish LG did put their own twist on the pre-installed software. I like the q slide and the other LG apps. I am disappointed to hear they are moving to the standard Android software.
sarat meinam, 26 Feb 2017lg g6 design is more secure than curved galaxy s8 design, but it doesn't have snàpdragon 835.there is not much difference between 821 and 835. 821 is powerful enough for years to come anyway.
I'm annoyed about the lack of removable battery, as this is why so many people have switched to LG. Remember the Note 7? That's what happens when you play with the non removable battery. Glad to see it had the headphone jack (can't believe that is a non-standard feature now). The V10 and V20 have it all and when you purchase one of those cell phones, there are no compromises. Otherwise the G6 seems like a decent cell phone. I hope the V30 follows the original formula with SD card, removable battery, headphone jack, and ticker screen. If you give your fans what they want, they will be loyal. Do not copy apple and samsung!
