I love my lg g6.. Its a perfect phone in most categories.. But the one thing I hate about it is the front camera.. Its horrible, like absolutely unusable most of the times specially in low light its worse than a 5000Rs Xiaomi phone.. I had the lg g5 before this and the front facing cam was pretty good on that.. Pictures were really nice outta that cam.. How can the quality drop this much? why LG?? What did you gain by doing that?? Is it because of the waterproofing thing? The pictures are so muddy n blurred and just of very poor quality..
LG please release an update to fix this camera, can't be so bad.. Before in all our group meets I used to use my phone to take selfies, now I don't even initiate coz I know the pics will be horrible n we won't be able to capture that moment..

I am in Asia and have the 64GB storage but doesnt matter because I also have 64GB micro sd which has more than enough room for me anyway. The Quad HD is nice but meh ! The wireless charging ?? Really who cares !!
Suhanoo, 16 May 2017Hi. Here is what you should do. You go to the homepage of GSMArena, then click on phone finder... moreThanks for the instructions. I already knew those. I was waiting for opinions/recommendations from people who are actually using those phones.
Swim Swim, 19 May 2017If you are from EU forget this phone: - No wireless charging ( USA exclusive) - No Quad DC... moreYeah the version we get isn't that great but one thing about lg phones is that they plummet in price very quickly,on amazon it's fallen by £50 already so in a few months it could be worth it even with the missing things we don't get.
If you are from EU forget this phone:
- No wireless charging ( USA exclusive)
- No Quad DC( Asia exclusive)
- No 64 GB storage ( Asia exclusive)
Basically you pay the same, but get less feature just because you arent Asian.
brandontx1, 18 May 2017 b est phone to date!!! deym!! it's a beast in a simple clothing!
My wife and i were strong supporters for LG as LG proven itself different from other manufacturers with their G3 quick-circle, G4 leather covers, G5 modular design, V10 stainless steel body. We owned all above mentioned models as each of them are unique to their own.
It was a total disappointment when LG announced the G6 with 13MPx(rear), 5MPx(front), non-user removable batteries. It clearly shows LG is following footstep of other manufacturer and losing its appeal of uniqueness. Sorry LG, we are not going for any of your phone anymore (at least for the next few years probably).
Adil Habib, 17 May 2017I don't know why LG G6 Glass 3?Because IPS LCDs that are made by LG are hard and durable enough...
Rex, 16 May 2017Why f2.2 only on front camera? Is front cam not noisy in normal lightning?Yeah front cam is actually worse than G5. Terrible low light pics. But rear facing cams are really really good! Wide angle is waaaay better then G5, but still meh in low light.

Screen size: 5 - 5.7 inch (prefer 5.5)
OS: Android 6/7
Camera: at least 13mp main / 5mp secondary
Dual sim, dual standby
Dedicated slot for memory card
3/4 gb ram, 64gb rom
Then a list of phones will come of your desired criteria. Then you go through the spec sheets of each phones, find out which of those serves you better. Then go to your nearest mall and try to get your hands on those devices. Then try to figure out which one you find the best considering all of the above criteria and your wallet-ability.
Considering that you want water resistant (not water proof, btw), the list should be very small and the devices are of flagship category of well known manufacturers. And if you are to go for Dual SIM and Dual standby along with dedicated slot for MC, then you are out of luck. Because you'll not find one until you go for Chinese manufacturers, and they don't do water resistant.
So I suggest you decide what is the 3 best criteria you want and then go for it. Personally, G6 is a damn good phone and cheaper than the S8. It gives you sturdiness, wide angle camera, cheaper price, yet when compared head to head with the S8, it gives a good fight (and wins sometimes). Yet I went for the S8. Because it felt better in my hand. My first 3 criteria were Good call quality, good looks and larger screen. Many of the phones out in the market matches those, but to me S8 felt better than others. G6 came a close second, followed by P10.
Go, do some homework. It's not that I don't want to tell you, I do. But it won't be right. You're the one who's gonna be spending the money to use the device for a year at least. If you don't like it, then everything will be lost. I give it a $|-|!T what others say about Samsung Galaxy S8 (or Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or Sony Xperia ZL or Nokia N8 or any of my previous phones). As long as I'm happy about it, it doesn't matter what others think and say about it. And certainly dear, I don't know which will make you absolutely happy. Nobody here does as nobody knows you personally. So go and find it yourself.
Hope I could help you with the guidelines. Give a Kudos if you like what I said.
Take care. Ciao...

If you want a better camera, you better buy a stand alone camera or DSLR with the price you spend on phones. Phone cameras will NEVER be the same as DSLRs because of the small sensors. A phone camera should be for taking a quick photo when you didn't expect one and still be able to use it (post it in social media etc). I used to take my DSLR in parties and take photos there. Then I'd spend time to convert them to JPEG from RAW and then publish them. But it's not convenient. Now I just capture with my phone, post it even before reaching home from the parties. I use the DSLR when I go for hiking and outing with my family, when I want to take some precious moments for myself.
Sorry if I have hurt you anyway. I know that it is your money and your decision and all. But I just wanted to give you an idea on having better way to take pictures. That's it.
Take care. Ciao...
Lol at early adopters. in hong kong its already almost the same price as a S7 Edge. The price difference is like 50 usd more for the G6 and falling.
