The 5.7" screen claim is misleading. I say they any 5.5" inch screen is bigger then LG G6 5.7" screen.
This because of the odd aspect ratio of 18:9. When you look at any YouTube video, you will see unused space on the sides because the LAG G6 screen is wider. But the screen hight is lower and the video will adjust itself to the hight, it will be like playing a video on a 5.4" or 5.3" screen.
Therefore I say, the screen of the LG G6 is smaller then, for example, the Huawei P10 Plus screen.
i love the fact that they dumped the modular design they used with the G5, i like the home button/fingerprint sensor position, but the only thing i don't like is the non removable battery, i don't need water resistance, i want to be able to remove it in case something happens... i'm sticking with my g4 for now
Looks like LG thought they could stay relevant in 2017 by having a high screen to size ratio only. Absolutely nothing else on this phone is interesting.
EZPlayer, 27 Feb 2017Why is it still using Snapdragon 821 SoC? Now every flagships are using Snapdragon 835 SoC lolBecause Samsung decided that they're going to hoard the entire first batch of 835s for their S8 phones. Since LG wanted to release the G6 now (because they don't want to take the attention away from V30 when it launches mid-year), they have no choice but to release it with 821.
EZPlayer, 27 Feb 2017Why is it still using Snapdragon 821 SoC? Now every flagships are using Snapdragon 835 SoC lolOnly S8 will be using Snapdragon 835. Every other flagship that will be released in the first half of 2017 will come with Snapdragon 835 or a MediaTek chipset.
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2017Here's my list of "Why did you do THAT" features (or rather lack of features)
1) Non-... moreYour comements at Sr.No.: 1,2 & 6 very very correct and relevant. I agree.
But I do not agree is your comments at seial number 3 .. I think your knowledge about Cameras is not good. It is not the Megapixels of the sensor which is very relevant rather it is the optics involved as well as the quality of pixels generated by the sensor.
An 8 Megapixel camera with good optics can give far better results than a 21 Megapixel Camera with bad optics and sensor.
Chrishd3z, 27 Feb 2017.... and here we go again. Beautiful device with everything you want in a phone yet Quad Dac i... moreLG is the only odd company that release completely different version of its flagship in different country. This country get one feature and the other dont and vice versa. Even G5 was not the same in many different countries. Their lack of consistency is making them look incompetent.
lg have some super specifications but lacks some next generations features like 3d display or snapdragon 821
.... and here we go again. Beautiful device with everything you want in a phone yet Quad Dac is not going to be available on the US version? What gives? I'll take better audio vs wireless charging any day. Guess I'm going to wait and see what Samsung has to announce before deciding on a 2017 Smartphone.
Why is it still using Snapdragon 821 SoC? Now every flagships are using Snapdragon 835 SoC lol
The fact that these people are judging the phone based on the spec sheet. SMH. wait for an In-depth review y'all.
Lg needs to price this phone properly, hope its not too expensive. Every mobile phone will be having negatives and positives. Things could have been better. But this time overall the LG6 seems like a job well done.
The back.... It's OK
But! Front: Impressive
G6 is beautiful phone in front garnish
Pro sale, 23 Feb 2017Jealousy???? Lolno , simply don't like the back, it's subjective.
heilos84, 27 Feb 2017Could not agree more. Battery is to small for such a huge phone. SHould be around 4000MahWhat about 6 inch XA ultra with 2700mAH battery?
i could have forgiven sd821 on this "flagship" if quad DAC could have been made available everywhere not just South Korea. but now, you aint gettin my money Lg. why does Lg like making such gambles??????????? do they know how their audio sucks without these DACs???? lemme now wait for sammy's S8 with AKG tuned audio!!!
Glad to see LG ditch it's modular experiment with G5 & get back to the more convectional smartphone design, & focusing on making it a compelling offering against it upcoming Android rivals.
Considering the popularity of the previous G series phone(Except g5) starting from G2, it appears to be another year where Lg may give Samsung & HTC a run for their money, but dare I say the inclusion of stereo speakers might have given it a competitive which LG might have missed.
Here's my list of "Why did you do THAT" features (or rather lack of features)
1) Non-removable Battery
2) Volume Buttons on the side
3) 3MP Downgrade of Rear Camera
4) Region specific hardware
(Most likely Carrier and Region specific colors as well - sick and tired of this)
5) Glass everywhere
(a submarine doesn't need to be made of glass to be waterproof)
6) No Laser Assisted Auto Focus
7) No Infrared Transmitter
