I really don't care if i don't get Oreo, as long as i get security updates.
But this was the last year premium device, and not getting update to oreo, now when android 9 is almost out.... hm. Bad for lg reputation.
Love the wide angle camera. Great nature photos (who needs gopro) :)
If i was gonna buy new mob. in 2018 I'd go for v30
I have lg g6 6 months now.
I love it.
The front camera is worthless. You would want to burn your face after you see how it looks in the selfies. Totally disheartened.
To be honest I love this phone. It is simply amazing. Snapdragon 821 i dont see any difference. User experience is great. I love the cameras and everything in this phone.
Emiliano, 05 Apr 2018what does the LG G6 most competetive brand to compare, pls. give atleast 3 brands..thank you f... moreHow do you mean? The phones that are the same in specs or price? It was released as an answer to the s8 but has a bit better spec then the s7. Screenwise the amoleds of the Samsung phone are better but personaly I dislike those because of the possible burn-in (what I had on my s7) and my eyes were tired an feeled burned after a while looking to those screens because the're to bright for me. So the screen of the g6 is far better for me. I think you can find phones that are the same in price or in specs, but best is don't read too much reviews and go to a shop and play around with them. When it has 4 gig of ram and a processor of the latest 2 years it will be fine for day to day use. However if you need a phone that has the best of everything to show off with, look at a s9 or iphone x or even a v30. Phones that cost twice then this phone, everything has a price, personaly to much for that small noticable diffrence in usage. If an app opens up 0,0001 sec faster on those I don't care much. Camera whise it also personal, best camera I had was on the s7 or even the s5. G6 is a 8/10 whike the s7 was a solid 9/10 for the camera. Small diffrence maybe due to software. Look at the v30, solid phone that has great reviews but as usual no-one wants it because its not a samsung or iphone. Same with the g6. Those huawei phones look good but I have zero experience with them so no opinion.
what does the LG G6 most competetive brand to compare, pls. give atleast 3 brands..thank you for your comments.
AnonD-737486, 17 Feb 2018is ur phone rooted?No this model cant root
Aadrian , 01 Apr 2018Down to 399 euro new in my country and that is a good deal. latest offer I saw in my country - 330E
who has the better main cameras - lg g6 or xiaomi mi6? not interested in selfies. i love the g6 wide angle camera, expandable storage and 3.5mm jack, but im a little bit sceptic about battery life and infamous bootloop problem (my lg g4 just died a few days ago from that problem). they are about the same price in my country (360 euros for the 64gb version)
XZ1 Compact or G6? Both ~same prices, but XZ1C has an SD835 and would probably fit better in my hand. However G6 has the better camera and much better community support (custom ROMs, root) which I'll definitely use, coming from a Nexus 5x. Can anyone with the G6 give an honest opinion about how it performs today?
Anonymous, 30 Mar 2018When is the g6 getting 8.0. Soon 9.0 will be coming out. I don't see an update scheduled. It's... morefrom where I see it, LG is in "denial" when it comes to G6 news:
- we know that it has been introduced in Google Enterprise Program and it will get Oreo 8.1 "soon" - this could be, in relative terms, 3 years from now;
- we could speculate that, while developing Oreo for G6 they discovered that it was a huge mistake to insert 821 chip into this device because future updates are impossible or they will "brick" the device;
- or, although Oreo is feasible for the G6, nu future updates are possible, which will make LG a huge liar because they promised 2 version of android, in terms of updates;
Or, LG is simply trying to get out of the mobile business due to lack of innovation or people to develop their software updates. Basically your question has no answer...not even LG can answer it...they don't know what to answer!
When is the g6 getting 8.0. Soon 9.0 will be coming out. I don't see an update scheduled. It's the reason I haven't bought one. Great looking phone though.
satish, 10 Mar 2018yes same with my cell also ,contact ,dailer all become slow. no Oreo update yetI had the same problem. After the V10u-IND-xx Jan patch, my phone became slow, especially the phone dialer. almost unusable. Did a factory reset and everything started working fine. Try it out.
I don't know about prices in other countries, but in mine i could buy g6 for 482$. New! It's still a good money/value choice.
I bought it in october 2017 for 500$.
Works like a charm.
Anonymous, 23 Mar 2018I don't own one of these phones, but I am trained on how to perform repairs and refurbishment ... moreThank you for listing the cons. Not many people share that.
I wouldn't buy a Samsung again either. Very bad value.
What phones would you suggest being involved in smartphone repairs as you say?

My main concern is with the fragil construction of the Mix 2 (the ... moreConcerning G6 I have to admit that it had its share of accidental drops but so far not a single scratch. I admit, I've applied an Alien Surface wrap (it's a self healing screen protector) and I have a Spigen cover. Regarding Mi Mix 2..not a clue, you'll have to search on google or some forums about its durability "drops". I'm sure you'll make the right choice (no matter which device you'll choose).
