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.

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

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.
