If you had used your own money I'm sure we wouldn't have this chat now. As you mention " I am a heavy user with using a tech for my work as well" perhaps this is what caused your device to succumb. The 821 works fine for my taste but in your case I would suggest a portable computer with 4G data attached to it if you have such heavy loads. A shaky hand can damage the sim tray
I am writing this review after using this product for about 10months. So here it is. This product (black variant) was a birthday gift from my father on 10th May 2017 ( I recommended after a lot of research, of course). It was worth 50k back then with an outdated processor (Snapdragon 821) whereas S8 offered Snapdragon 835. I still thought of putting my faith in it (No clue what got into me). Due to my extremely busy schedule, I set the phone on 12th May. It took about 5HRS for its first charge. I tried managing on and off until July ( because i did not wanted to switch to another phone as setting a phone takes a lot of time; At least for me).
I got frustrated eventually since it lagged way too much, battery issue on charge time and drainage, visited the service center in July and they tried convincing me it was fine. After about 4 visits I managed to convince them to issue me a DOA certificate (dead on arrival). Got a new handset and damn, happy now.
The new product seemed to run fine, until around October is started off to lag. Lag real bad. I am a heavy user with using a tech for my work as well.
While I was off on a trip to Dubai, the sim tray broke while I was trying to switch to a local sim. It still seemed to work fine until about a week back, 21/02/2018, when the battery drained overnight. I charged my phone next morning and switched it on, it seemed to not read one of my sim cards (airtel; vodafone seemed to work fine). I tried changing the slot and still the same. I reached out to an airtel outlet and the sim worked all fine in another handset.
I reached the LG service center again, the guy suggests flashing the software (thereby losing all of my data for the 3rd time for the same pathetic product). Can't explain how annoyed (and equally helpless) I feel.
I would surely take time to appreciate what's good.
1. Camera- Outstanding. Can't beat the pictures clicked from it.
2. Display- Beautiful colors and real bright and immersive display. 18:9 screen ratio gives a great experience.
3. Battery- I wouldn't say good, but decent. Anywhere close to what other premium smartphones might offer. Unless, you are a one plus user.
4. Fast charge- It really charges the phone good and fast. (The experience from the replaced model).
5. Aesthetics- The phones looks premium and beautiful. Easy and comfortable to hold and operate.
1. Sim tray- Extremely fragile. Handle with utmost care.
2. Battery- At a price of 50k, offer better battery performance please.
3. Processor- Stop being outdated. When others offered SD835, you offer SD821, and let me tell you, it wasn't worth the trust I put in the product.
4. OS- It has been about a year almost, the Oreo update hasn't been rolled out. Now, when I pay 50k, I expect quality and service. I cannot wait for Android 8 when the world it prepared for the launch of Android 9.
5. Customer Service- Real bad customer service. Extremely poor knowledge of the product. No audacity or manners to behave with the customer. Keep procrastinating the work. Extremely unprofessional.
Dear LG, I have had food stored and cooked in your refrigerators and microwaves, had a TV for about 10years. I really like your products but please stop fooling and looting people by selling your phones. It is not your forte, not your genre. Please save your brand name and stick to what you are good at. You are not good at making smartphones. Face it.
Dear people, thank you for reading the review. I strongly support and promote LG all products (except smartphones). They are good with it. But please don't invest in it's smartphones. Happy shopping.
Is there such a thing as 'non-removable' battery? Did LG carve the battery to the mobo of the phone or what?

It's happen to me as well.
Posted system updated, everything has change into bad thing.
Battery dry so fast..
Open phone book it is lagging for few second including when you make a call.. it is need to wait until phone call made.
Any solution guys?
Updated the lg g6 India
Just can't use the phone contact and dialer
It takes 15 seconds to bring the results of the contact search
Then after you select the contact it takes 10 secs to start the dialing
Tried a number of things .. uninstalling apps , removing contact and phone permission no improvement
If you disable wifi and cellular data . You get your speed back
Can't figure out what changed after the update
It's a pain to use the phone now . If you want to make a call you need to switch the wifi and data off each time
Why is lg not rectifying it LG G6 was the galt ship phir
Also after update Battery burns in 6 hrs instead of lasting an entire day
Hope LG does something .. my next phone is definitely not an LG

I have the LG G6 for less then 30 days now and are having a screen issue. I will be taking the phone back to the shop on Monday as this issue occurred outside business hours. I however would like to know if anyone knows what could course this type of screen issue. My phone has color lines across the screen vertically. I haven't dropped the phone or mishandled it in any way and have and I kept the phone in a silicon cover. My phone was charging via a power bank and I was taking pictures in a park while being there with my family. I turned the screen off for a minuted while I was waiting to take the next picture. I scanned my finger and next thing I noticed was lines on the side. each time I seem to turn the screen off and back on the lines seems to be moving across the screen. I had a hard time getting back into my phone after a complete shut down and after about 2hrs managed to perform a complete factory reset but the issue remains.
Has anyone had this issue or know what could course this from happening. This is my first LG after many years of being a Samsung user and I am very disappointed right now.
Freaked out user!
