>> elongated screens seems to be the direction in which all major players are headed.
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.

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.
LG used to make cutting edge phones for amazing price (Nexus 5 anyone?). Those were their glory days. Nowadays they make "value offerings" with discounted or frankly just cheap components while regionally disabling any redeeming features and pricing their devices up there with the best. Frankly, I think LG lost it.
JordanBaby, 19 Mar 2017Oh, the iPhone and Pixel. Yep, those two bricks LOLThey are seriously outdated looking phones though.
I don't much like the G6 look either ... but at least it's more modern looking
Other than the screen, nothing is impressive. Other good things are just those which LG is catching up, and camera and processor being biggest let downs. Specially camera, because In case of processor, they had no choice, but for camera, they could have just got a better one. Now I hope some G6s, or G6T or whatever will upgrade to sd835, dual 12MP with same sensor as pixels /Mi5s.
Anonymous, 18 Mar 2017You can buy G5 for less than that in most places of the world and it's a better phone than G6 ... moreI checked, price is still high which is around the price of a One Plus 3. In my location, the S7 is just around $40 more expensive.

But last years hardware is something to wonder about.
zodiacfml, 18 Mar 2017I'd get one for the price of a 3T. You can buy G5 for less than that in most places of the world and it's a better phone than G6 ... why wait?
(I mean better camera in both low light and selfie situations, removable battery, bigger screen with 16:9 content, I.E. with most apps, IR support. G6 is only better in being waterproof)
for me this phone really has a bad design.. its so plain like a brick! how could most of the people like the design., some of the specs are also outdated. sorry but I'll pass this phone

6s beating oneplus 3 . OnePlus 3 is probably faster than LG G5 ...
