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?

- 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.

I wouldn't buy a Samsung again either. Very bad value.
What phones would you suggest being involved in smartphone repairs as you say?

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).

My main concern is with the fragil construction of the Mix 2 (the g6 seems alot sturdier), but the front of the device is just tempting me. Updates are not something that is bodering me, as I see it the software on the G6 is good enough even without oreo update.
In the end i would say, the question is: Will the Mi Mix 2 survive the ocasional fall on the ground?
Verbally we can recommend anything. You have to hold them in your hand and see their interfaces to get a proper impression. I do not know how Xiaomi updates are, but me, as an G6 owner, updates are from worse to terrible. I will probably offend some of the people reading this but today I had on online chat with LG support regarding Oreo update and they told me that they only receive memos and notifications, they are not allowed to ask "mother company" anything, especially related to G6. Basically LG is trying to get rid of all those faithful clients or trying to get out of mobile business...take your pick.
Would apriciate some help. I'm planing to buy a new phone and I'm considering the Lg G6 and the Xiomi Mi Mix 2. (similar pricing where I'm living)
What would you recomend?
