LG G6 smartphone review: A decent enough phone in isolation, but it can't challenge a flagship - Tech2

 

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Apple iPhone 7 are unquestionably flagship smartphones. Is the LG G6 worthy of that title?

I really wanted to like the G6. The concept videos and the initial leaks described a stunning phone. But LG was too late. LG made a grave mistake by launching this phone after the stunning Samsung Galaxy S8.

LG G6 review

 

A great screen in a stylish body

Great screen ; Water-resistant body

Older chipset ; Removable battery gone ; Expensive for what's inside

The G6 is a great phone from LG, one that pushes the brand back to the forefront of the smartphone pile in terms of design and screen. However, lower-spec performance and not upgrading the camera in a meaningful way while still charging a huge premium...

LG G6 Smartphone Review

 

Tough shell! The LG G6 marks the end of the modular smartphone from the Korean manufacturer. Instead, we get a robust chassis, new screen ratio, improved cameras, and a bigger battery. Sounds like a good combination.

compact design ; sturdy chassis ; water and dust resistance ; good performance ; great cameras ; excellent microphones ; very good voice quality ; great display with Dolby Vision and HDR10 ; good battery runtime ; expandable storage

display uses PWM ; only wired video output ; only USB 2.0 ; throttling under high load ; no dual-SIM

The LG G6 is not only a simple update of the high-end smartphone, but it follows a completely new concept compared to the LG G5. The plan worked and LG offers a great smartphone, which convinces with its design, good battery runtimes, great cameras,...

LG G6 review: a great gimmick-free smartphone

 

With a stunning screen, Google Assistant, 60fps 4K video recording, expandable storage, this is LG's best phone, ever

Large 18:9 display ; Premium design ; Waterproofing

Slightly hollow feel ; UI ; 2016 chipset

Expert review by: (t3.com)

Hands on LG G6 review: a definite step on with super Quad HD+ display, waterproofing and general wonderment

 

With a stunning screen, Google Assistant, 60fps 4K video recording, expandable storage and a stunning skin you'll feel like a G6

Wonderful 18:9 display ; Expandable storage ; 60fps 4K video recording ; Waterproofing

Back not the best-looking ; Removable battery has gone

LG G6

 

LG G6 review release date, price and specs: Hands-on with LG's latest flagship. It's the Korean brand's best-looking phone to date, but have there been that many improvements over the LG G5? And can it challenge the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8?

Great display ; Unique wide-angle camera ; Eye-catching look

You’re paying top price for older internals ; Camera isn’t a huge improvement ; UK model lacking features

By going with a much sleeker water-resistant design, LG has had to sacrifice the removable battery that many seemed to like on previous iterations. I can’t say I’ve ever felt the need to carry around a spare battery, especially when battery packs are...

LG G6 review

 

LG's recent smartphone struggles should be set to change with the G6. But does the LG brand hold the necessary clout to go toe to toe with Samsung?

The LG G6 is no doubt a striking smartphone. Metal and glass shimmer while the huge 18:9 screen is impressively brought to life with the improved software and its rounded corner design. It is a more refined smartphone than both the G4 and G5, and...

LG G6 review

 

The LG G6 proves that big-screen phones can come in small packages. It's the best Android phone you can buy.

LG G6 review: Now cheaper, but still outclassed by Galaxy S8

 

The LG G6's stretched-out display makes it a pleasure to use, but you should probably wait for the Samsung Galaxy S8

Display ; Camera app ; Build quality

Price ; Performance

So while the LG G6 is a fantastic phone in its own right, it isn’t the Samsung Galaxy S8 killer we were hoping for. If the price falls as quickly as the LG G5’s price did last year, this conclusion may change. For now, though, I advise you wait and see...

LG G6 review

 

In high school, being different only works if you're also cool. Otherwise, you get mocked or, possibly worse, completely ignored. LG can no doubt relate.

The beautifully design LG G6 is water-resistant with a tall, expansive display and an extra wide-angle camera.

The phone is LG's first flagship in years without a removable battery. It has last year's Snapdragon 821 chipset.

The LG G6 is a gorgeous phone and those wary of Samsung should get it.
