Anonymous, 26 Feb 2017Youre joking right? I hope you're wrong. Do you have a source for the camera? The only excuse ... moreI hope he is wrong as well. I too hope that Lg has bigger pixel size like the Pixels and they must not go back to 1/3.06 sensor. If anything, they should move to 1/2.3 or something like that. I can live with last year's S821 as long as they have improved cameras, display quality, battery life and, oh, no bootlooping.
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2017why is 4GB RAM not enough? sounds plenty to me, at least
and the SoC, well... apparently Sam... moreIt's slow for a flagship.
Observe how slow it is in the hands of a 6GB phone:
It reloads assets way too frequently for 2017 standards.
If you want to buy a flagship that reloads every 5 apps bE my guest ... I'm not going to pay top dollar for second rate experience though. Thankfully Chinese makers understood the point of ram on android (Asus with 8GB , oneplus with 6GB)
Xain47, 26 Feb 2017Seriously guys this is no flagship! You can say that SD835 wasn't available cause of Sammy but... moreSoC doesn't matter, RAM matters far more in performance. Just look at phonebuFF and C4etech and basically any site's real time speed tests.
This one will be a slow phone for 2017 standards. Any 6 or 8GB phone would assassinate it. Add to that the sealed battery (yeah, more MaH, but after a year they don't matter as sealed batteries degrade, removable ones get replaced).
Lastly a taller screen (same width) which actually creates more problems than solves. Now it's harder to use one handed and most content is built for 16:9 anyway, so it's not as if its weird aspect ratio is going to be used. All in all a downgrade from last year.
Paul60, 26 Feb 2017Not a bad device, if priced right.Well it's worse than G5. Same specs (basically), with taller screen (not very usefull) but without removable battery (extremely useful). I can see this phone failing harder than G5...
raky, 26 Feb 2017based on S8 rumors:
1. same goes for both devices
2. we'll see new camera on Samsung, but i... moreHow do you know I wasn't planning to buy it, do I have to make my intentions to purchase devices known to you specifically?
Your right in perhaps the S8 will not be that much of a step up over this, we'll have to say on that front. But as it is the latest Galaxy, it will likely crush the G6 in sales anyhow.
My point is the G6 (unless priced extremely aggressively) brings nothing compelling enough to change the fact that The S series has consistently outsold it by a wide margin.
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2017So, you hope s8 will have FM/quad dac/IR blaster? XDIn a way, yes, I'm hoping for it, looking forward to it to have all that or at least the IR blaster which the Note4 / S6 / S6E & LG G5 had.
The S7 / S7E already has wireless charging so that's solved.
I mentioned the G6's wireless charging is market dependent and that's what is a money-loser.
Seriously guys this is no flagship! You can say that SD835 wasn't available cause of Sammy but Just look at the camera, it's a downgrade from V20... Is this also Samsung fault? I don't understand why would LG do that?
I don't understand why people said the LG G6 is ugly and the chipset is bad. That Full Vision display is AWESOME. SD 821 is a beast. Haters gonna hate, I guess.
After seeing the LG G6 in all it's glory, I'm more hype to see what's in store for the Galaxy S8. Based on the leaks so far, the design of the Galaxy S8 will be much more awesome than the LG G6's (based on my humble opinion)
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2017Thanks mate, this new aspect ratio isn't going to be a big hit in my opinionWelcome. Not a revolutionary one but beneficial in my opinion. Actually they just replaced touch navigation keys by screen real estate. Think of it as sony's bottom bezel also occupied by screen.
vasra, 26 Feb 2017Too low RAM, too small battery, old 2016 SoC, max 64GB flash memory model. This for a 2017 H1 ... morewhy is 4GB RAM not enough? sounds plenty to me, at least
and the SoC, well... apparently Samsung claimed like all of them as mentioned in the article and i guess LG needs to get the G6 out there before the S8 arrives to stand a chance. competing with Samsung is hard...
Sajjadfaisal, 26 Feb 20175.2 Thanks mate, this new aspect ratio isn't going to be a big hit in my opinion
lg aren't exactly the better performing one recently when it comes to software reliability, build-quality
i wonder why LG remove the laser autofocus out of their new G6. I was thinking of something great to replace my G4, but unfortunately the G6 is not much better than my wife's G5.
I remember people getting really upset with HTC for using the SD821 with the U Ultra. I wonder if those same people are equally upset with LG.
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2017What the hell man, you know mi5s price? S7? PIXEL? Please compare phone with same price segmen... moreHater!!! Did I said bad thing or condemn LG or others here?
Btw I'm Mi5 user.. better be poor people than an "IDIOT behind Anonymous".
Lex79, 26 Feb 2017So it's got:
1. A Ram/Rom combo that is the same as last years flagships.
2. A main camera... morebased on S8 rumors:
1. same goes for both devices
2. we'll see new camera on Samsung, but i expec't it to be better
3. S8 will have smaller battery, 300mAh
4. too bad for a quad dac avaibillity, but neather s8 will have it
5. LG v20 was first device to come with v.7 and one of first to get update to v.7.1
i don't see why would be something diferent with G6
you have right to be disappointed..if you ware expecting this device to buy it....since you're not, i don't see why are you so disappointed!?
NawrasKeshreh, 26 Feb 2017SD821 that is disappointing despite the nice stuff and screen it brings out, but this one won'... morethat's for a two months...now it is best avaible SoC.
and SD835 need to be tested first...
Too low RAM, too small battery, old 2016 SoC, max 64GB flash memory model. This for a 2017 H1 flagship is OK, IF and ONLY IF the price is much cheaper than the competing Huawei, Samsung and other models.
IF not, ah well, it'll only sell to the LG fans.
Looks like a nice phone, but it is weird LG didn't go all the way on the specs. SoC, RAM and memory storage space all matter.
Mzma PIB, 26 Feb 2017Camera processing software also play important role, example Mi5S equip with one of the best &... moreWhat the hell man, you know mi5s price? S7? PIXEL? Please compare phone with same price segment. Please tell me better than mi5s in its price segment? Don't own mi5s but have try it couple days and great. Yes software is important but price decided how good is it (except for iPhone, this logic not work for iPhone).
BTW its doesn't look bad as people said, oh sorry I forgot. HATER!!! Hater will always said negative to every product that they hate. Poor people!
