Actually, I like the phone. The white one is pretty. The black one is good. The design is great, still a bit more elegant compared to phones like Mi Mix and some S8 leaks. Phone width at 71mm is perfect despite the large 5.7" screen. Waterproofing is great. The display seems to be not a concern as all first impressions are positive. Battery life seems pretty promising with 3300 mAh. However, I'm kind of worried on the camera side of things. Smaller sensor than the G5, really? But I'm pretty positive that it's not the case as it seems that the 1/3" size was just a baseless guess.
If the camera turns to be good and considerably cheaper than the S8, I think it's time to upgrade.
Well , they are gambling on their reputation with these specs.You put last year's specs into a flagship device that's fine as long as you compensate the customers with something else,for example battery what is wrong with a slightly thicker body and a 4000 mah? absolutely nothing.SD 821 is a great performer and 4 gb of ram isn't too bad either,but man the battery capacity is not that good.
Good Job L G But still they could have just implemented modularity with a little mix like how motorola did it. Its good but that Snapdragon 821 chip and 4GB of ram make it feel like a device of the past. Clearly in specs terms Samsung is going to beat the LG G6 with the S8 and S8+. I hope that samsung does a good job this year. Anyways Goodluck with the G6 LG. But I cannot blame them since samsung the the manufacturer of the Qualcomm snapdragon, samsung have privileges against other manufacturers.
Probably the worst upgrade in mobile history. Basically is just SCREEN & WATER RESISTANCE. No stereo speakers, no 6GB RAM, no 64GB standard, no SD835 etc, only 5MP front, only 13MP main, - removable battery & more. Really SHAME TO LG.
i feel like samsung is doing a market stagedy, cuz they help qualcomm to make the 835 so they can have the 835 first giving them an advantage to other companies so phones released earlier than the s8 will have 821 rather than 835 and giving the s8 sounds better on paper than other phones released at MWC including the g6 since they lost billion dollars and actually second on Q4 2016 giving apple the crown but it wont be that long since the stagedy of samsung is make their phone sounds and look better on paper than other flagship phones this year but we all know log has the V series, Xiaomi releasing its pinecone chipset so no problems, also with huawei with the kirin so LG will have the 835 in late 2017
Oscar, 25 Feb 2017If the battery is not removable and without Radio, LG5 will be my last LG mobile.Get the V20. Perosnally I like the V series more than the G as of now. Only thing is I really refer compact phones. So if ever they brought the v34 here, I would get it.
Assassin21, 26 Feb 2017It's confirmed Qualcomm Snapdragon 821, such a disappointmentSD821 is not outdated. It's released in oktober 2016. In real life use you will not see much difference between SD821 and SD835, except maybe in batterylife. But the price of a phone with SD835 chip will be more expensive..
Back panel gorilla glass 5, front panel gorilla glass 3, LOL wtf LG
No wireless charging outside of the US! WTF? If it had that, I would have got one, but I even have a wireless charging case on my iPhone SE (£10.99 from Amazon), and before that had Nexus 5, LG G3, Galaxy S6 & 7, Note 4 (with wireless back), so have wireless docks and pads all over the home and office. Oh why LG? You have just lost a sale to Samsung Note 8.
whos watching the livestream? also 3300 mAh battery, 18:9 aspect ration, dolby vision, hdr 10, optical zoom, 5.2 inch phone size yet it has 5.7 inch screen size, IP68, what a good phone LG, nice job, although sd 821 might be a dissapointed though but nice LG, i like it.
AndiiRoo, 25 Feb 2017If the battery is not removable i shall not be buying the LG G6, which is what I had intended ... moreNon replaceable batteries can still be replaced if you're willing to open the phone and change it out yourself after warranty is finished. This phone will struggle so hard to see amongst its peers... S8, p10, op4, mate 9.. The soc used is the achilis heel
sarat meinam, 26 Feb 2017lg g6 design is more secure than curved galaxy s8 design, but it doesn't have snàpdragon 835.clearly the looks, cpu, and battery usage is going to be won by the S8, but true, G6 build seems more resilient and there are other advantages: considerably better camera, probably the best we will see this year, bluetooth 5.0, infrared sensor, and a better price I suppose.

There's nothing wrong with non removable battery. I have been using a phone with non removable batt and still no battery issue even i overcharge it alot it doesnt swell up. Its up to users on how to take care of the phone. Dont blame the phone for irresponsible usage
AndiiRoo, 25 Feb 2017If the battery is not removable i shall not be buying the LG G6, which is what I had intended ... morei prefer non-removable battery because it is more durable and last longer...its placed as non-removable because it is very durable...the battery will not get damaged by over-charging and you can use your phone even while charging without worrying your battery will be damaged...just like my LG G2...
