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?
Anyone else noticed that the screen colour is poor compared to s8?
Like colours are not popping..
Hany.I.Farid, 05 May 2017Hope this also won't suffer a fried motherboard like all LG'sThey fixed that issue with G4s manufactured in 2016 and I know a lot of people who have had G4s and G5s for over a year so think about what you want to say before taking out garbage from your mouth.
Like a G6 :v, 12 Apr 2017Sorry, but Samsung S8 will have worse battery life and endurance than G6. LOLexcept it doesnt because LG doesnt know shit about energy efficiency
Just got 1 a few days ago. For those who complaint about battery, install Hibernation Manager and calibrate the battery. Morning to 7.40 PM LT still left me 45% of juice. Pretty much lasting until midnight. LG is always better than Samsung but SURPRISINGLY I found my Zenfone 3 ZE552KL battery lasting almost 50% longer using the very same Hibernation Manager.
LG G6 is a good buy unlike other overpricing flagships. Have some flagships but LG is better is some ways except G4 where the battery is really terrible.
not sure why but IQ from the wide angle lens is quite a bit poorer than the standard lens, don't know why LG are using different processing between the 2 lenses? but there is quite a big difference in IQ, the wide angle lens is very mushy detail wise... pity!
Super phone i ever seen and the Dolby vision is simply awesome.overall a beast
harikurisseril, 20 Apr 2017The only problem with LG is that the screen is LCD...LCD is not the problem, it's one of the best mobile phone screens, why people always read instead of go to see more?
Like a G6 :v, 12 Apr 2017Sorry, but Samsung S8 will have worse battery life and endurance than G6. LOLI dont think so. LG, in the past years, though having a decent amount of battery, still failed to establish its ground when its comes to battery endurance. Why? Because they have poor optimisation on their software in connection with the power consumption. Samsung, in the past years, though with small to decent amount of battery, really shined i dont know the reason but my experience tells me so. And btw, LG's so freaking bad in real-time speed tests, maybe this G6 would be fairly competitive with the samsung galaxy s7/s7 edge. But not with s8/s8plus brother you know that
PizzaMan79, 11 Apr 2017For me the LG V20 is still the ultimate phone by far. The second screen is so useful in practi... moreyou are so right! love my v20 as well. it's so solid in all ways. pops up above the bunch same-ish phones
