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.
Great disign, great specs and comes around 150-250 euros cheaper than s8, what makes this phone to be in other category

Do you feel is it a worthy upgrade? How's the display quality compared to S7E? Please suggest me as I'm planning to buy this phone
I hope LG release G6SE (or what ever) powered sd835 with better battery efficiency & better camera that par with S8, also with the front cam
Just dont change the design (i love it)

Nice phone too, but nothing special there. G6 is speedy enough for me. I,m not noticed any laggy at G6. Tone of the display satisfying me too.
I manly use phone for 5 things: calls, texts, navigation, reading books and camera. The last being the most important when I buy a new phone. And must say, this phone is great in terms of how its made and the form factor and responsiveness and all but the camera... not. I will keep using my G4 and give this one to my wife, she is a happy snapper. WB and exposure is off, too much sharpening halos, pictures just dont come out right. DNG doesn't help either. Will miss the focus peaking, the only reason I might consider keeping it. Small sensor, small results. Really disappointed.

I must say ...using G6 since 15 days now...1 of the best android phone...feels great in the hand...I used it naked for 5 days as cover had not arrived...but never once I was nervous that I will drop the phone...I had the s7 edge and I would never use that phone without a case...
I have indian version dual sim and boths sims active sim1 jio sim2 airtel and both are 4g which is great...as my 1gb data of jio gets over I activate my airtel data...
having 64gb internal data iam happy and hifi dac
battery life iam getting is 2 days with 5 to 6 hrs SOT..i skipped s8 maily for edge screen which is useless in daily use and no screen protector and that fps placement...hope Samsung starts to make flat screen phones in flagship
in short G6 is the best out there and best ever lg has ever made

I am a Samsung fan,but wasn't feeling thrilled about the "edge" screen of the S8. People are too insistent on getting the highest specs in the latest phones, yet the average user doesn't even need (or even notice) the extra speed. Many don't even use the extra memory,but insist on paying the high price to get it.
AnonD-646859, 12 May 2017Hi. Now i have my third day with G6. i,m former user of G3(since 2014) and i must say that G6 ... moreHow is the screen on g6? I ve also read a lot of rewievs that s8 is laggy again(as always,laggy samsung,bad software,etc) and that g6,even with older snapdragon 821 is faster(again) than s8.
Anonymous, 11 May 2017im confuse right now, which on is better Lg G6 or Samsung S8People are too hooked on the idea of one new phone being the best for all. Think about the features that you, personally, need or at least value the most. Forget about always looking for the most speed or memory,because not everyone will make use of it. People are in the habit of getting the latest,fastest,most "loaded"phone, even if their use only needs half of it's speed or memory.
AnonD-646859, 12 May 2017Hi. Now i have my third day with G6. i,m former user of G3(since 2014) and i must say that G6 ... moreExactly, G6 uses IPS display which is very hard and durable LCD which is original technology came from LG.
Hi. Now i have my third day with G6. i,m former user of G3(since 2014) and i must say that G6 really is the phone worth of all that waiting. Trustworthy, and the solid are the words of my mind when handling the G6. I made my decision after trying S8, and G6. For sure S8 is the most powerfull, and at least gorgeous phone, but for me, curved display of S8 is useless. Lots of people are complaining the use of gorilla 3 glass on the G6 display. Gorilla 3 is the glass used my LG G3 display, and after using that phone nearly three years now, there isn,t any visible scrathes, or cracks, still perfect display. Also the High quality IPS display used of G6, looks for my eyes, better than Amoled display. Just take the both of (S8/G6) phones on your hands before decision.
I am mulling between G6 and S8...but 32 Gb only is a real let down. Even the cheap J7 prime has 32 Gb...what a let down...Still have to see G6 in flesh, but i will probably get S8.
