From2018, 20 Mar 2017>>17:9 is the golden ratio Dude, do you even golden ratio? Just google it, genius.Nobody uses ~1.61 on phones ... For phones golden ratio is the one used by most apps, I.E. 16:9 with hardware buttons and 17:9 with soft buttons. Simple. Bye.
I'd rather get a Mate 9 over this phone. Even if software and security patches update is very underwhelming for Huawei phones not to mention the lower ppi count but the battery performance is much better.
Anonymous, 20 Mar 2017I doubt SD821 to SD835 would have any major difference in day to day performance. 6GB to 4GB o... moreAbsolutely agree. Small battery and less RAM are cost cutting. Less RAM will also ensure product lifespan is shortened forcing u to buy new phone.
Why buying G6 for $700-800?
Low battery and worst battery life rating for price.
Last year chipset with high price
2:1 aspect ratio? oh God for what? really needed?
Design, its beautiful (front but back is ugly for many people though) but nothing extreme different or something new or remarkable achievement.
Regional limitations on nice-to-have features
No stereo speakers
Priced well into flagship territory despite 'value proposition' claims
Please tell why to choose G6? If we are apple, sony, samsung, xiaomi fan. What new and different?
People need something special/needed to change to other brand when it come to favorite.
My little sister is iPhone die hard fans, using iP7, one day she said need bigger display and better battery life but no need high price phone, so based on what she need I suggest Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 SD. First she said she dont want, dont trust Chinese phone but after test it for 2 days she happy and it suit her need. Then I bought her one.
Have friend, middle class man, farmer, entire life (android era) using Samsung midrangger as Samsung fans and never satisfied. One day I suggest him to get mi 5 just for $240 and last time we met he said thanks, wonderful phone and cant believe Chinese company can do it very well.
My aunt, Samsung die hard fans, want to get Tab or big screen phone, I suggest mi max and happy to go since now. Price to value is very damn good.
Friend, LG fans, G5 owner, falling in love with curved design and get S7edge, now bark he have best phone of 2016. You can said that gimmick screen but look what Samsung and phone owner get.
Childhood friend, iPhone fan and iphone 6s user, hate android coz 3 samsung midranger disappoint him, I suggest OP3T because he want to play android game, hardcore gamer. Now he often hand OP3T than iPhone.
Friend, Sony fan using XZ, you know them well: hating samsung, apple and other also slime bezel phone, but get mi mix because of design. Design! Best design phone in 2016!
So why choose G6??? if we can have mi mix with beautiful design, S8 with curved design and other +, XZP with fantastic cam performance, iPhone with brand status, OP3T with same chipset and better for gaming, mi 5 line with half price, mate 9 with supper performance also eye catching design, dont forget dual cam.
It would be a near perfect phone if it has 4,000 mAh battery and IR bluster. As for SD 835, it is not necessary.

But if the SoC is something that can pass,old camera sensor and lossing the removable battery its not(at least for me).
Pretty risky decisions on part of LG... lets see if their gambling paid off.

Android due to ram caching is far faster when it caches background apps (far less loading between apps, between tabs, youtube buffer stays in place, etc; in general everything is ultra fast).
And for that they had no justification, no hoarding of 2GB parts from Samsung, merely cutting costs measure. Add to that the ommision of removable batt (you can make a phone waterproof even with removable battery , a bit of how S5 was) and you *know* cutting costs was one of the primary reasons...
Given that and given the $700 pricetag ... who the he'll justifies that?
Lets face it. Its beautifully crafted, yes, but somewhat disappointing inside. Im a fan of compact devices so the screen-to-body ratio is a thumbs up for me, but double thumbs down for the chipset. Yes, we all know guys that samsung hoarded the supply of SD835, but LG could've done better. Why release something ahead of time if a lot of people are waiting for SOMETHING that comes after it? Because of that, the chipset was compromised to SD821.
its a good phone.
but if the company is cutting corners, they better price it at 500$ otherwise S7, one plus 4 will take away market
From2018, 19 Mar 2017>> elongated screens seems to be the direction in which all major players are headed.
N... more17:9 is the golden ratio. It allows for soft keys without spoiling then16:9 used by apps and youtube. Also it allows for (true) 4k or 2k when watching games (and soft keys are off).
If you go bezels 17:9 is the golden ratio. Only Mi Mix use this btw.
best aspect ratio for manga reader IMHO. it will be perfect except for the softkey if it can hide the softkey when reading manga then you will got a full page without black area
The G6 has a gorgeous design....unlike those bezel bricks they are releasing across the pond
Jason CAsio, 19 Mar 2017I had this phone for 2 days. don't like the specs and the charger so I throw it on the fish pondIt may not pollute the water if you choose to throw the fruit.

No, it's NOT. The 2:1 screens are a joke for just about every scenario, other than VR and 2:1 movies. If the two brain-dead companies believe these two are enough to revert further away from the golden ratio, they will learn a hard way that they are not.

Simon, 19 Mar 2017LG used to make cutting edge phones for amazing price (Nexus 5 anyone?). Those were their glor... moreI agree. I have the Nexus5. The 5X is pretty much compelling during its time choosing the correct SoC, the SD808. But like the N5, it doesn't have memory card slot. The N5 is still plenty useful, so going to the 5X is pretty much redundant.
After the 5X, I never warmed to any of their releases maybe because Samsung has far surpassed LG as an electronic manufacturer. LG doesn't know they have lost it by continuing with their pricing on par with Samsung. Huawei seems more serious as they are developing their own SoC, the Kirin.
Even if the G6 costs similarly to an S7 or Edge, I would have easily chosen the Samsung due to AMOLED display. Superior, larger sensor primary camera.
I will only consider if this costs similar to a One Plus 3T. Though it has an AMOLED display and aluminum body, it doesn't have memory expansion.
initially I was looking to get this device, but after reading up on it, seeing this video, and noticing that its selling for a whopping $1k+ CAD, I'm going to get myself the 3T instead. Don't need SD slot and don't care if its water resistant. For $400+ less, the 3T offers a larger battery, and most of the same performance minus the rounded screen. Seems like a pretty safe bet.
