You know, the LG G6 isn't the only one that waterproofed a smartphone. If you learned your LG G-series history, you may notice that the LG Optimus GJ did it first with IPx7.
phonesucker, 15 Apr 2017I just brought it 4 days ago, its a good phone but the style is a little bit old fashion, too ... moreDidn't come with the 835 chip because Samsung had a deal to buy the whole first lot and LG couldn't wait for another batch to bring out the LG G6
ali, 12 Apr 2017G6 or V20 or S7 Edge or P10 or P10 Plus or Xperia XZ.. please need urgent responseAll of them are great choices mates. But I dont think the s7 edge is a great option. I've used my friend's s7 edge and it sucks big time. Really laggy and you'll feel that everything is slow. The XZ might be the worst camera smartphone here but its a great performer and will last you for like 3 years. The v20 and g6 are great at video recording especially the v20. The G6 is also a great phone which has a great body to screen ratio. The p10 would be my choice here. Because it has the Kirin 960 which is the best processor here. It has a compact body and the camera is a killer especially for stills. The not so great part of it would be the battery life and the audio output(speakers or headphone quality).
I am coming from an LG G3, but it is a great upgrade to that phone. I was worried about the size, but it fits in the hand nicely. A bit heaver than the G3, but just feels solid and well built.
The phone is glass, front and back, so I was worried that it would be slick to hold, but it is actually very sturdy in hand. I have already put a caseology case on it, but it wouldn't need it. The IP68 is nice, as I have already dunked a few phones in my lifetime.
The only lag I have noticed was early on when the phone was restoring apps from the google servers. Now that it has been up and running, it is smooth and responsive to touch. I have installed squarehome2 launcher and set the app to scale to 18:9 and it looks awesome. Full use of the screen and a slight swipe up to engage the navigation menu.
FM Radio a nice little bonus and the SD Card is always a plus. Always on display is actually more handy than I anticipated and the finger print scanner works very well. NFC and android pay work as well. Also, the LCD screen is one of the best I have seen.
The best part of the deal..... $15.00usd a month for 20 months!!! Way to go USCC. Oh, and a free LG Home promo at LG's website.....
If you always need the greatest tech, don't bother. But imo, if you just want a really REALLY good phone that will handle any apps or media, you would be hard pressed to find a better phone.
Sindroid, 13 Apr 2017because IR blaster is old tech. Most tv´s can be controlled via WIFI these days.If it was only for TV, I wouldn't care less. However, I need IR it to control projectors, dslr, and all sort of players.
I was waiting to upgrade my lg g4, but because the IR blaster is gone, the G6 won't be my next phone. bye bye LG
celts, 16 Apr 2017agree with your analysis. also i would add, G6 has bigger screen. but still G5 is better imo.Lol @ proud G5 owners.

Clearly not very polular already you can see the opinions section here maybe only a couple new posts per day.
I just brought it 4 days ago, its a good phone but the style is a little bit old fashion, too thick also why LG not using 835 chip ? also back side of the glass panel is too weak. Samsung looks better on function and design.
