Why are people comparing this to an s8? The s8 unlocked in the open market is signifantly more expensive.
More suitable would be to compare it to the s7 edge which has similar specs and price.
I think I will go for the LG v20 , having read and tried many smartphones. I thought about xiaomi but trying them and seeing their interface plus with thw Mi 6 with no earphones jack makes me dislike them. Also There's no really much price difference, Xiaomi or meizu are not really cheaper as people think and even in mid range samsung deliver better deal overall.
Other thing makes me prefer the v20 is the removable battery, but this G6 looks great too.

Having the ability to shoot more content in the screen, especially in an event, without using panorama (so no person would get cut) is really great for me. It's also a distinct feature as to which no other manufacturer but LG managed (or at least intended) to create a camera with 120 deg angle of view. Having a different shot with other phones is actually a more useful feature for me.
About battery though, I would say it's mediocre, not astounding but also not disappointing, I can easily get a full day with moderate browsing, chatting and gaming. That said, the s8 might have more efficient processor, but less battery. I thought it's just another way around.
However, wish you really get what suits you best. I also bought this with international warrant, which in any case, rather pointless in my country. And I don't have the patience to wait for v30 haha. But this phone's been going well. Cheers!
weeebooo, 26 May 2017are you sure you had those arrows right?
mi6 and mi mix the best phone of them all?
can you ... moreHi, sorry for the late reply.
The MiMix is better than S8 Plus because yes it lasts longer, but bigger battery so it makes sense. Charging is faster on the MiMix too. And it has 256GB internal memory but no external. And the MiMix uses USF 2.1(my S8 Plus uses USF 2.1 too, but i heard not all S8/S8 Plus uses USF 2.1).
And MiMix is cheaper than the S8 Plus so i guess its better. Dont ask about the camera though, its slow and results are acceptable but not great.
ziana zain, 26 May 2017samsung fanboys trolling hereSince you seem to know a lot about LG G6 and S8. Tell me which phone has screwed up UI? Which phone doesnt have sound modes from drop down notifications?
I BOUGHT the phones. Not just by reading in gsmarena. Unlike you who barks too much lmao.

I have to admit that I too hate the curve display on the S8 as it makes the phone even more fragile than its already is (since front and rear glass sandwich). My problem is for LG phones, I can only get it if I'm willing to drive for 7 hours to another town as my hometown didn't sell LG mobile whereas the S8 are all over the place. The good thing is I'm going overseas so I've been thinking of getting one soon but I'll lose warranty (although I'm lucky enough to not have any phone brakes at least 2 years after purchase) and based on my surveys, LG mobile parts are rare in my country.
LG V20 and G6 both have their own standout features like Quad DAC and 3 mics are on the V20 while G6 wide angle camera has more details and less distortion. For me, choosing a phone is easy. I only based on audio and camera performance and both LG really got my attention. I guess I'm going to gamble this time. Hope you enjoy your new G6 by the way.

PKM1, 02 Jun 2017All are good. Let your budget decide on the phone. Thank you. The problem is that my budget can cover up to the priciest S8 but that doesn't mean it's the best option as well. That's why I'm lost.
Mi Dou, 03 Jun 2017have u heard about Galaxy S8?!!!
Yes ,also head about its cons
(1).gamming is not so smooth,
(2).it fails in drop test with lg g6,
(3).poor battery life.
(4).not have versatality in camera department like g6 have
Jacky, 30 May 2017LG V20 or LG G6 or Galaxy S8 Plus
Which one will you pick and why......I already bought a g6 because its large screen to body ratio, ultra wide angle camera with similar resolution with main camera (actually I use it quite often, I didn't expect it), and ultimately I hate curved screen, and do not quite like bulky phone v20. So that's that.
S8 is actually a better phone on paper but I just hate curved display, and the placement of fingerprint really disturb me. It's all a matter of preferences really. You wouldn't be disappointed in choosing among those phones.
Mi Dou, 03 Jun 2017have u heard about Galaxy S8?!!! Lets wait for LG V30 if you want to compare LG to Samsung S8
Bharath, 02 Jun 2017Lg faaaaaaaaar better then samsung have u heard about Galaxy S8?!!!
How to activate the app drawer option as cannot see that anywhere in the settings like G5
Jacky, 30 May 2017LG V20 or LG G6 or Galaxy S8 Plus
Which one will you pick and why......I own a V20 and a S8, it is really personal preference from that standpoint. The V20 is a media machine, the G6 not far behind (unless you're in South Korea). The S8 and S8+ are good all rounders with punchy cameras.
-The V20 if you don't mind a large phone, and want a full media experience with MIL-STD drop rating without entirely breaking the bank.
-The G6 if you want a little higher performance than the V20, and HDR, IP rating over MIL-STD, but can lose better mics, and DAC (unless in south korea)
-The S8+ if you want the latest SoC, HDR, Punchier color display and imaging, and don't mind paying premium to get those.
