JordanBaby, 27 Feb 2017So a comparison with a superior device is a bad thing now? I get it, LG fanXperia always has good Specifications....but only on GSMARENA coz in real life, Xperia is meh
Broeckx Bart, 27 Feb 2017LG fanboys love the LG G6 and they will buy it, doesn't realy matter if the price is to expens... moreWhat exactly is mid-range about this phone? The processor?
1. In real life, the difference between SD821 and SD835 will be very thin. I have a G5(SD820) and still have my G4(SD808). And there's no much difference in performance.
2.Performance is not all about processor. LG has actually been having better RAM management than Samsung and if the same applies to the G6, that S821 will do a pretty good job against the SD835.
3.LG knows it's offering an older SoC and price will therefore be less by about $200 from the S8.
4.All other phones wanting the SD835 will launch late June. And they will face even tougher competition from the iPhone 8 and the LG V30 that will follow soon after. The only way LG was going to launch this phone with SD835 is if it waited till June but then would also have to push release of V30 to November-December which makes no sense.
All in all, I am anxious to see the device and how it holds up against Samsung S8 and S8+. I do not need to look at HTC or Xperia(Good specs on paper but never in real life oh and those bezels for Christ's sake)
Well, at least HTC has sapphire glass and sense UI as well as great build quality. Now people cant crucify HTC for the pricing. Or they could crucify them both. Lol
S3mm, 27 Feb 2017Bezel for freaking big camera sensor(is the same size as last year but thicker) they will not ... moreTruth is Xperia always has the best Specs on paper. But in real life, it doesn't even measure up to top 5 phones each year when comparing the flagships. And they stuck with same design since time immemorial. You see someone holding an Xperia and you cannot even tell whether its Z or Z1 or etc
Well if they priced it lower they would have a much bigger lead before Samsung brings out the S8 and S8+. Too bad they are going with this price. It's as if they are punishing early supporters instead of rewarding them coz it is obvious that the price will go down when the S8 and S8+ comes just to stay competitive...
Gor that price, XZP or S8 is better deal IMO. $650? Still waiting what OP, Moto, and Xiaomi will bring next. $500? Now we talk about it!
Lol i want g6 plus with having sd835 6inch screen 4000mah battery also rear power volume button
TechGirl90, 27 Feb 2017LOL! I can't wait until the Galaxy S8/S8+ is announced and I read the pricing and then after t... more"we'll it has the latest specs, so it's justified" - well this is NOT even the latest specs (Soc is no where near latest and LG G camera always lagg behing)
JordanBaby, 27 Feb 2017Other than bezels, what issues can you say for the XZ Premium? It basically covers what a 2017... moreSONYs has the worst image processing in the market. No benefit of that large sensor Sony G lens and all that SLO no S#!T
Anonymous, 28 Feb 2017Fandroids are the worst. You people need to chill. All Android phones are goodYeah! They're all equally good, let's buy this instead of all this cr@p: http://www.androidauthority.com/4-dollar-freedom-251-smartphone-sketchy-674506/
$800 is too cheap for LG flagship phones. make it $1200 high end brand and I buy that.
Well I am surprised of the comments to not mention that Korean G6 includes the Quad Dac, Hence, the price is naturally higher.
Rest of the world should get around 500-700 range due to DAC's exclusion.
Zaiton sameon, 28 Feb 2017Lol for all complainers....if you cannot afford to buy it do buy the cheaper brand okay...inst... moreExcept its both cheaper and better performance than the G6 with a piece of crap SOC.
It's no real upgrade over the much cheaper V20? Wow. That's uh... wow.
