It used to be a prerequisite for me as well but I no longer care if a phone has it.
In the review you mentioned the phone "will also survive dips in sea water", but you can't find it written in the specs. If this phone is really "MIL-STD-810G" compliant, then one of the tests it should go through is "test method 509.5 Salt Fog", which can be similar to the sea water conditions. The question is, whether the phone was really laboratory tested for these conditions or was it just made to meet the specifiactions? As a big fan of rugged phones I would like to know that and see some real-life testing in some form in this review. I know you don't want to break things, but if this phone is made for harsh conditions, go and test it because that's why people like me buy these things. After breaking my first smartphone many years ago, HTC One V LTE, that felt from a 1m on display which shattered in thousand pieces, I said no, I will never buy a regular smartphone that needs attention like a small baby. Snow, sand, storms, water, mud, crash, I want my phone to withstand all of that and that's why I'm fond of rugged phones with military standard specs.

The notification LED is a must have for me and one of the most useful features a smartphone can have. For some it maybe is oldfashioned these days, but a simple blink-blink and one look on your phone and you know whether is worth your attention at the moment. With no LED notification is this phone useless for me, although I really considered buying it in the future because of the wateproofness and MIL-ST-810 specs. You saved me quite a lot of money, thanks.
Would have been great to mention the missing notification LED. Not entirely a deal breaker, but the decision to buy the G6 was based also on this review and I was utterly disappointed when I brought it home and realized there's no notification LED on the front (I don't use AOD). Bummer.
I don't take care so much for self fish camera. I take care on rear Camera and i purchase LG H873 Canada Wordwide version with price around 350 USD. S8 is double expensive than my LG G6.
By the way, i feel that G6 LCD on bottom left is little yellow than center. But when i check with highest light level, i don't see it.
I upgrade to this phone after my Samsung S7 broken the LCD glass.
Anyone use G6 have same problem with me?
Anonymous, 20 Mar 2017Lg G6= Lg G5 minus. same adreno 530 as the G5, quad core only went up .02, gorilla glass... moreAgree with everything. It is definitely a downgrade to a mid-ranger that they marketed as the next flagship with a Â€700+ price tag. Such a scam. I have bought one and it´s gone straight into eBay. What a rip-off, LG!!!
Nick.B, 30 Mar 2017is the g6 camera on par with v20 or better or worse ?It´s bad!!!! If you want a good camera, don´t buy this phone!!! The selfie camera is only 5MP and I haven´t seen such bad quality since my old Galaxy S2!!
Totally underwhelming phone that I have bought and it´s going straight into eBay. Nothing to show for it, other than the big, ok display. But every phone has one nowadays. Also every phone has a good camera nowadays. At least every phone worth ÂÂ€700+ at launch. Or so you would expect.... NOT THE LG G6: the main camera is ok. But OH MY GOD the 5 MP selfie camera!!! I haven´t seen such crap since at least 2008!!!!
And the phone is heavy. Man, it feels heavy...!
I am keeping my good old and versatile LG G5 with its great camera (main AND selfies) and light weight.
This phone is total UnImpressive. Instead of an OLED display, they went to IPS and Instead of SD835 they put SD821 which is from 2016. Just waste of money.

I switched from a droid maxx 2 and wanted an upgrade. Boy was it a bad idea, I can't talk and get on the internet at the same time and I lose service in the middle of town if I'm going downhill. My screen cracks with every drop (4 times now) and the volume automatically adjusts at random times, so either people are shouting at me or I can't hear them. The good is the battery lasts forever, and the phone itself is fast as long as you have service and the camera is fast and amazing. Overall I wish I hadn't given the droid to my nephew because I would have switched back along time ago. I wouldn't get this phone again unless they offered free service with it. I can't wait to get a different and I probably won't wait 2 years to get a new one. I loved the lg g3 that I used to have but I don't think I'll pick another lg again. 2 stars
Has anyone got this phone and would you recommend it!? ive heard reviews about it scratching easily due to the gorilla glass 3 is this true!? and whats it like for playing games any lag or any other problems!?
It is now around 400 Euro in DE single sim model though :-(, if it also been dual sim, it would of been perfect. Maybe next time LG learns to put all the features for on all phones not limiting them by region.

S8 is also incredible they are both fast browsing but galaxies edges are prone of amoled burn and screen beak easy even without dropping them in the end they worth buying..
Lg G6, Sony Xperia XZ, Galaxy S8.. Guys which one u suggest from these top of line andriods I live in UAE and they are in almost same price bracket
Need honest and balanced opinion.. Thanks
I'm getting the g6 as a replacement for my oooold but was still my favorite v10 from att who suffered, died, and will more than likely be buried. Before that, I had a g3 that suffered the same fate. Infinite bootlooping. Here's hoping the g6 last at least a year.
A warning to anyone thinking of buying the LG G6 and V20... The glass covering the rear cameras has a design fault and just randomly shatters!!.. After some research it is a known issue. The rep at Fido here in Canada said she has already had a few other customer return theirs, as well as the instore model suffering from the same fate. I've only had the phone a few weeks and now have to wait whilst it's sent away for repairs!
I cannot see any mention at all (within this review) on which version of the phone was tested.
This is an incredibly important piece of information, since the 64GB version of the phone has the improved microphones (better sound quality when recording video and talking on speakerphone) as well as the upgraded audio DAC (which should have a major impact on audio performance).
Is somebody able to please confirm which version was tested in this review?
