I really wish LG did away with the home screen app thing rather than the App Drawer. If I wanted all my apps littered across the home screen, I would buy an iphone. The app drawer cleans the interface up. Dissapointed to hear about the lack of removable battery, but glad to see SD card and headphone jack (on top of device). I'll stick to the V phones, they are the best to offer since they have it all, including SD card, removable battery, headphone, ticker screen, camera, and amazing software. I hope LG doesn't screw up the V30.
Mobilemaster, 26 Feb 2017They had no choice, because Samsung will use all of the new SD 835 chipsets on the S8. Others ... moreI am aware of the reasoning behind it, but still, this give LG a very slim chance of getting great sales on this phone. So gg samsung.
It's really filthy play though, but I understand it,samsung is by far the biggest buyer for those chips.
Lex79, 23 Feb 2017LG need a hit, but even getting to market first is not going to be enough to give this an edge... moreI wish LG did put their own twist on the pre-installed software. I like the q slide and the other LG apps. I am disappointed to hear they are moving to the standard Android software.
sarat meinam, 26 Feb 2017lg g6 design is more secure than curved galaxy s8 design, but it doesn't have snàpdragon 835.there is not much difference between 821 and 835. 821 is powerful enough for years to come anyway.
I'm annoyed about the lack of removable battery, as this is why so many people have switched to LG. Remember the Note 7? That's what happens when you play with the non removable battery. Glad to see it had the headphone jack (can't believe that is a non-standard feature now). The V10 and V20 have it all and when you purchase one of those cell phones, there are no compromises. Otherwise the G6 seems like a decent cell phone. I hope the V30 follows the original formula with SD card, removable battery, headphone jack, and ticker screen. If you give your fans what they want, they will be loyal. Do not copy apple and samsung!

The design looks good. We are in 2017, and we love smaller bezels, and big screens.
I am also glad to see the IP68 rating.
What they should have done is to add stereo speakers, more internal storage, and more battery(seriously, Motorola has made a 3300 mAh phone back in 2011!)
I am also curious about the camera quality.
And finally, about the high quality Hi-Fi sound what is said to be available only to the Asian market, I believe we will be able to buy that version online from Ebay, or other online shops.
I like the improvements over the lg g5, but damn, hving a flagship in 2017 that competes with the SD835, and in your flagship still sits a revamped SD821, good luck with that LG.
I got the mi5splus from xiaomi so I'm rocking the same processor, worse camera and stuff, but still I'm wanting to see the pricepoint of this.
Comes with powerful but now outdated sd 821, don't buy until you get it in 35 k inr range
They should price this right if not I will definitely get Huawei P10 instead
LG V20 is much better; at least you can remove & change the battery! Idiots!
G5 looks pretty good now!
G5 over G6:
-16 MPX main camera vs 13 MPX
-8 MPX F2.0 FFC vs 5MPX 2.2
-same processor and same RAM
-Gorilla Glass 4 vs 3 on front
-Upgradeable to Nougat
I am happy G4 user and was pondering to upgrade to G6 in the fall after a price drop, in spite of the non-removeable battery, but still hoping to get a bigger screen and, double the RAM (6 GB), the latest processor and most importantly better cameras. Instead I am very dissapointed to be offered a poorer main and front facing camera with no infrared port. I really thought LG was a company dedicated to being original and user-oriented. Instead it has become a half-assed bootleg copy of Samsung which also copies Apple. Truly horrible! If the V30 follows the same trend, you have definetely lost me as a customer, LG, and I am sure, thousands more like me.
I'd rather buy Xiaomi Mix. The design is more sleek and with more consideration on details.
SonOfOsiris, 26 Feb 2017Back panel gorilla glass 5, front panel gorilla glass 3, LOL wtf LGGG-3 for the front is harder and less prone to scratches. I think GG-3 is the best for the front. Flat screen also allows for a good tempered glass screen protector to add protection. GG-5 for the back is more shatter resistant so I can see why they did that. but I HATE GLASS BACKED CELL PHONES!!!!!!!! WHY????? I don't care about wireless charging...it is not that hard to plug in a universal cable! And I heard GG-4 for the camera lens cover on the back so a compromise between scract hand shatter resistance. Does it have a notification LED?
