AnonD-617214, 28 Feb 2017Truth is Xperia always has the best Specs on paper. But in real life, it doesn't even measure ... moreFunny i though it reversed
Sony doesn't really have good spec in paper but perform better in real life. Prove is someone still using z1, t3 and c5 ultra till today.
The cause of that point of view is never had one(the phone), review(about the phone) is enough.
Being a little open doesn't hurt
Every brand is unique whether performance, stability, quality, innovation, relibility, longetivity etc.
AnonD-617214, 28 Feb 2017Xperia always has good Specifications....but only on GSMARENA coz in real life, Xperia is mehXperia XZ Premium looked like a hell of a fast device and the camera performance a massive improvement. Xperia has gone from "meh" to something closer to "wow", its not there yet but its closing the gap with Samsung. LG and Samsung's new G6 and S8 will pressure Sony to cut bezels by next year. Besides, having no bezel is unattractive, having too much is unattractive. A phone with 50% bezel size of an Xperia or 30% larger than the S8 to me is a perfect bezel size. Front facing dual stereo speakers matter too, that's what the S8 and G6 lack.
Obi Wan Kenobi, 01 Mar 2017Oh I also forgot to mention only Gorilla Glass 3 and no laser auto-focus. Talk about a downgrade....At one point Sony was made fun of for having no Laser-AF, now the Xperia XZS and XZ Premium are rocking the top of the line Laser-AF system.

Obi Wan Kenobi, 01 Mar 2017Oh I also forgot to mention only Gorilla Glass 3 and no laser auto-focus. Talk about a downgrade....I really think Gorilla Glass 3 is an error. That phone cannot have Gorilla Glass 3. Even G5 has Gorilla Glass 4.

Not Z1 and Z2 though, but Z series and X series has different design especially the XZ (mybe not that different, in picture that is)
Same can be said with other device
You wont be able to differentiate iphone 6,6s and 7 with chinese phone without holding it
And samsung no better s1 and s2, s3 to s5, s6 and s7 + A(2017) series is pretty much identical

Anonymous, 28 Feb 2017Except its both cheaper and better performance than the G6 with a piece of crap SOC.Enlight me, when did we came from "best ever" in a Google Pixel, to the "crqp SoC" in LG g6????
What is currently better, other than Huawei's Kirin, whic os not available to others than Huawei!?
I know you are talkin about SD835, but mind that difference won't be enough to call SD821 "crap", i guess that you are aware that thos SoC is not currently avaible, and that it won't be for another 2 months.
So, in April, you will get your chans to say something, right now... You are just... Not very smart (to be nice with you)
Shadocx, 28 Feb 2017I think S8 will cost 850$ and S8+ 900$S8 will cost $950 and S8+ $1000
Julliard, 01 Mar 2017I dont see G series as LG flagship anymore. I like their V series better. A flagshipphones phone should be worldwide available, the LG V20 is not on sale in large parts of Europe.
G6 price $800? Then XZP and S8 have to be at least $1000 and iPhone 8 $1300. SOMETHING WRONG WITH THEY logic

I was talking about the camera. Do you consider the IMX258 sensor to be top of the line? It's already been used by the Xiaomi Mi 4C in 2015...
What part of this phone exactly do you call flagshipphone worth?
AnonD-617214, 28 Feb 2017S8 will cost $200 more than G6. Just waitI think S8 will cost 850$ and S8+ 900$
I was reading some battery stats ranking on Phone arena and LG's X Power was the leader of the pack amongst an endless list of devices.
So with all that in mind, how come LG wouldn't use such an advantage and do the same for their flagship G6 knowing that it is a little lacking in the most recent chipset and will also come with just 32GB of storage (US) and also gorilla glass 3 up front?
GSMA said it: "So much for a value proposition".
SD 821, 5 MP selfie camera, a downgraded rear sensor, no IR blaster, no removable battery........the G6 did really take 1 step back for every 2 steps it gained. I though we would find a silver lining in the pricing but alas!
Anonymous, 28 Feb 2017Well if they priced it lower they would have a much bigger lead before Samsung brings out the ... moreYour comment is on point..I said something to that effect as well probably here or on another site.
LG has a perfect chance to garner a little headstart in numbers moved before Sammy unleash their S8/S8+ which we all know they will get a big advertising push.
It's greed, plain and simple greed. Go jump! I can buy better or be patient. FU LG!
this price its the start price.. but i`m pretty sure it will go low same happen with g5
