The 5.7" screen on the LG G6 is just a stretched 5.2" screen. They both share the same width.
It would have been better to stick to the 16:9 aspect ratio instead of this 2:1 ratio screen.
By sticking to the 16:9 ratio, LG could have made this phone 14.4mm shorter, ie. 134.5mm instead of the too long 148.9mm.
Great Phone! I got it from Hong Kong 3 weeks ago and i can say it is the most solid and complete device I had the last years.
Great battery life, very good cameras, sound is impressive, very handy, light with very slim bezels,great built quality, feels nice to hold, without giving up the big screen.
This time.. well-done LG

Thanks for the recommendation!

With quick charging, you can have a full battery charge in just 1.5 hrs and will last for a day of usage.

Excellent build quality. Performance wise it is great, no issues as of now. Battery life is good too as I can go for a full day and a bit in one charge despite of heavy usage. I don't play big games so cannot comment on the gaming performance. Camera is amongst the best in the market. Although low light shots are not the greatest but not bad either. Wife is using S8, but I feel the G6 is more sturdier and I'm not a fan of the edge screens.

it improves battery life and overall performance.
if you're looking for 5.5-5.7 and water-resistant (IP68 certified), i only have 3 devices in mind;
Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) with 5.7" screen, will upgrade to Nougat soon
LG G6 with 5.7" screen, comes with Nougat
and Sony Experia XZ Premium with 5.46" screen and comes with Nougat
A7(2017) perform the least (in terms of camera and gaming) but cheaper (USD 380-399 in my country)
G6 and XZ Premium are flagships, you dont have to worry about their performance and quite pricey.
(they priced similarly in my country, around USD 800~ish)

Go for LG G6.
1. Beautiful screen.
2. Superb design and feel in hand, premium materials.
3. Battery life, about 5-6 screen on time.
4. Every app and high end game is running flawless (in 18:9 gaming is superb).
5. Camera is good, in top 5, also the wide camera is good.
I have used HTC 10 and starting with 29.04.2017 I`m ussing G6, for me G6 is a superb phone, also the android is running without any LAG, I think that is the most lag-less device on the market.
I just wish the sim could be dual standby and a dedicated slot for the memory card. Plus led notification. I'm currently using Asus Zenfone 2 and I'm planning to buy a new phone. Been using zenfone 2 for 2 years now. No issue so far but asus hasnt even release Android 6/7 on Zenfone2. Options are: Zenfone 3, LG g6, Sony z5 dual premium, huawei p10 plus. Any recommendations guys?
Anyone here actually using LG g6? How's the battery life? cam/audio quality? Tried playing high end games? How was it?
Here's what I'm trying to consider:
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
Thank you! Respect post pls. :)
Now! You can to feeling good progressive:
Well done LG also very good job

But LG should definitely do more aggressively advertising, it's a superb phone that deserves to be on everyone's radar when looking for a new phone.

It is a flaw in LCD and LED based (including AMOLED, OLED, etc) panels in general. I think, and I am not fully certain, that the only panel now that isn't, is quantum dot or QLED, which hasn't made it onto phones (Samsung only has it on their premium TVs)
When is it gonna be updated this review with the final firmware?
I ask because it's been 2 months since this review was published and I'd like to see the final results (battery, benchmarks.....)

HTC, do, but their TV and print ads are terrible. Samsung's latest for the S8 that features what looks like a chunky old design phone screen being banged into the size of the S8 screen by the characters in a video is superb!

No ghosting images on LG G6 and highly doubt any will show up until at least 6mos down the road.
My friend is going to sell hers b/c it started to bootloop. All the haters were right about bootloops.
No I'm not serious.
*trollololol* Her phone did not bootloop. She's selling it b/c it has no LED notification, battery life got really really inconsistent the past week ever since she paired it with her watch, and b/c sadly the selfie cam really does suck in low light for her. Ughs. Now she wanted iPhone. Poor thing. Broke her heart to let her know iPhone doesn't have LED Notifier and no headphone jack. Looks like soon enough I'm going to have another friend with a Sony Xperia soon.
I would prefer the G6 over the S8. I just love the G6 design. But there are some things that annoy me. Firstly, most people who go for a new phone are told by salesmen to purchase the S8, as how it is in retail shops, as how it is on webshops. Enter a mobile phone selling webshop the first two phones you see is either an iPhone, or the newest Samsung. iPhones or Samsungs, period. Secondly, since the LG G6 came out here, I have seen exaclty zero ads on tv, on the streets -billboards- or wherever ads can be found. Since the S8 came out here, I have seen tons of ads, mainly on TV, but also billboards, showing the S8.
The fact that for many people the G6 might be the better choice, is completely obsolete because of advertising. Should LG be as agressive in advertising as Samsung? I think so, LG Electronics has the money for it.
