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. Update: facial recognition is now...

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,...

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

 

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.

LG G6 review: Finally back in the race

 

After LG went wild with the G5, this year's flagship G6 can't help but seem a little subdued by comparison. That's alright, though: It's full of notable improvements, from the water-resistant body to the beautiful, extra-long screen. Plus, the...

Gorgeous 18:9 display ; Solid performance despite older chip ; Dual camera offers lots of flexibility ; It’s water-resistant!

LG’s interface still isn’t for everyone ; Disappointing battery life ; Plain industrial design ; Unimpressive audio

There's no doubt about it: The G6 represents some of LG's best smartphone work ever. Sure, it's not perfect: Audio is pretty weak, and so is the battery. None of that takes away from the fact that LG has built a phone that feels ready to compete with...
