It's been a full day with the 8.0 update and I can say optimisation is great. After the update, the performance is rock solid...from temperature under load to battery life and ram management.Ithe phone is now stone cold even under average to heavy load.
I guess 8.1 or Android P will be like a dream. To bad we will never find out on a G6.
I was on the verge of ditching this phone but now I might keep it for a while longer. Huge performance increase but no thanks to LG Android 8 just rocks. If anything LG just kept it away from us for so long
I have looked, but many reviews dont go into that detail.. its the reason why i asked here to get first hand knowledge from users.
Any recommendations for a review that i can use?
LG g6 anyone facing text message issue ???
I buy just 4 days only but I can't text message or receive what I can do

Firstly. Salute and my respect to gsmarena team. You are doing great job.
I purchased g6 in czech alza 2 months ago. Went for option 60 days for return. Paid extra 5% of phone price for that. Why? Because someone's opinions on this web about battery,cam,boot, and other bla bla.
I don't return G6. Instead love it.
Got 2.01mm wide. The photos fully comply with gsmarena review. May look bit less sharp. But when standing same distance only. Shure same 13M takes more area photo. When same area, photos are same lovely. Only curved. Normal (no wide) camera don't bent corners like sony, which is for me definite.
Colors are almost perfect for me. Are bit stronger that reality. But better than Samsung or iPhone overcooked and overlighted photos, to which I started to be alergic, because are too far from reality. I think in evening photo should look like evening,not like day. Must name Sony for my best colors, but as noted in every review, that happens only at perfect light, in all other situation Sony damaged so many family memories.
My objections to G6 cam are only:I work in automotive, so 1. prefer lenses in corner to get to narrow places of car taking pictures of parts. 2. Cam doesnt have torch option like sony, but only flash. Still G6 manages to adjust intensity and bring ok photo. Sony would be burned totals.3. Photo of car cluster rarely comes focused. Cam instead focuses on the covering glass. But I guess most phones are fooled by that.
Camera UI of LG is best. Sony made me lot of pain with that swipe to get video. Samsung was good.
That some saying worst battery life on earth is not my case. Normaly I finish first day with 55-70%. Most consuming appears to be camera. Other things consumption are somehow greatly managed like I never seen even on Sony. Well maybe Sony last more years with same performance, needing restart maybe every 2 years. But this is my first LG,so I will see. My Samsung s5mini was different story, finally after 25months loosing signal 4hrs a day while still displaying full signal.
What else? Display is good. Sony has white white. G6 white is creamy. But I don't mind now. Somehow it makes me feel warmer. Full sun reading is no problem. I'm surprised. S5 mini after update went stupid at auto brightness and went total dark at full sun or firing that boost which is super visible but horrible. And I got tired of amoled superstrong colors.
UI of G6 now my love. Sony is so cold,but samurai for work,that's right. Samsung so annoying. G6 calendar is very good. I even stopped using Google calendar,which is very good too. And there is many other small things on LG which are not too naked android, neighter too much. I don't like searching and downloading apps. Now am perfectly happy with most what I got on G6. Only am not sure about Evernote,which is integrated. Maybe I have to learn how to use. But until now am fine with LG calendar and task management.
LG keyboard has great functions. Only Czech words dictionary is bit small,while learning is slow in Czech and English. How many times I had to type GDi to made it first option? I did 30 times maybe but still LG changes for 'his'. But was it different on Sony or Samsung? I don't know,because I ended with auto words off there. On LG you put finger on space bar and move to side to get to proper place of word. Wonderful. How many times I was swearing trying to hit beginning of word etc.
My big pain was alarm. I miss so much Samsung angel feather style soft alarm. But recorded through Mic and somehow has similar experience now. But still would prefer if LG cared about this for customers happiness.
On other hand LG can close all oncoming alarm at any moment with one press. So my backup alarms dont make me look silly at work.
Loudspeaker is as said in gsmarena review. What they mean by distortion at full volume is not speaker mechanic craziness,but Koreans probably adjusted sound electronically,so you hear full volume,but some parts are limited and this makes somehow flatter,but not annoying music. Generally,speaker is so loud,I mostly play music at around 80%.
Yes. Front camera is not very good. But I dont use this function except video call. So I don't care.
Scratching of rear camera didnt happen to me.
Face recognition works. Bit slowly,but I think I would be dead if unlocking with any blink of eye on display.
And yes. LG health I prefer over Samsung. Despite Samsung counting more steps (two phones in pocket). And I like the drink water reminder. So on Saturday night know how much should I drink extra:) to be healthy.
I think possibly many of that bad reviews could be faked by competition dealers. Why? Because G6 is so good.
Nithin , 04 May 2018LG G6 is Beautiful and good performance phone still worth 2018, Expect Latest Oreo update soon... moreAwesome Camera performance?? i bought this phone today mainly because of that so called good camera. and im so disapointed. low light performance (main and wide angle camera) is so bad. my old phone was 2015 LG G4, and that 3 year old had a better camera than this "awesome camera performance". LG fooled me 2 times so far - first one with G4 bootlooping and now this one - camera is just bad compare to some old phones from a few years back. shame on LG
Honestly, one of my worst tech purchases
Bought it only because I found a bargain...
Can't wait to exchange it, maybe for a Huawei P20 Pro or Huawei Mate 10 Pro
AnonD-756878, 04 May 2018Does in Camera app you find any options regarding AINot at all

This device is awesome in all aspects
Display , camera , signal strength including wifi, battery time , and output speaker throw quality sound.
Only Front facing camera is average, rest is perfect.
Today I got 8.0 update.
Highly recommend Phone.
Potential buyer, 23 Apr 2018Guys lg g6 or samsung s7.I need to use this phone for at least 2 year and i prioritize gaming ... moreTo be honest. Have a g6 now and before the s7 and s7 edge. S7 edge has best battery life. S7 best size. Both vivid screens in color. The g6 has the worst battery life of the 3. Screen is ok. Sun light doesn't make things better. However in theory the g6 will receive the most updates of android (oreo still a no go 4 the moment). And s7 (edge) will not get one after oreo. They perform the same in games. Want a samsung? Buy a s8 or even an s9. Want an lg? Buy the v30 or wait a bit for the g7. Will give you the most for your money in terms of lifetime and updates in the future. 2 years is a long time for a phone so better buy the best now and have a good phone for 2 years then buying an old phone and be forces to buy a new 1 in a year because it's to slow. My humble opinion. Choose wisely
