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

 

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...

LG G6

 

The 5.7-inch LG G6 packs the biggest screen it can in a body narrow enough to hold comfortably, but otherwise falls short on innovation.

Excellent one-handed form factor. Sturdy build. Useful dual rear cameras. Crisp HDR screen. Waterproof. SD card slot.

Processor lags behind upcoming flagships. Screen could be brighter. Odd aspect ratio. No removable battery.

The LG G6 represents the refinement of ideas drawn from the company's previous flagships. You have the dual-camera setup from the G5 and V20, but with both sensors being of equal resolution. You have a large, gorgeous screen that's possible to use with...

LG G6 Review: The display is the key

 

After the ill-fated modular excesses of 2016, LG has found its head in 2017, and the LG G6 is all the better for it. Owners of the G5 may be left frustrated that the vision of interchangeable accessories and growing functionality they were promised has...

After the modular madness of the G5, and the secondary-screen additions of the V20, the LG G6 feels almost boring in comparison. Nonetheless, I can’t really argue with LG’s strategy of jettisoning gimmicks in favor of more usable features. I just wish...

LG G Stylo review

 

Although big-screen phones usually come with a high price tag, the LG G Stylo -- aka the LG G4 Stylus -- is a rare 5.7-inch device that costs just $199 prepaid in the US. In addition to its competitive price, the handset also has Android 5.1 Lollipop,...

The LG G Stylo has a competitively low prepaid price, a long-lasting battery and a built-in stylus for added functionality.

The handset picked up a subtle amount of static during calls, 4G LTE data speeds were slow in our area and its stylus doesn't have as many productivity tools as the Samsung Galaxy Note 4's S-Pen.

Though the LG G Stylo's stylus is more of an afterthought, it's still a highly affordable big-screen handset.

LG G3 S review

 

If you like the look of the LG G3 (and who wouldn't? The camera uses lasers!) but your wallet is less keen, then meet the LG G3 S, also known as the LG G3 Beat, or the LG G3 Mini.

The LG G3 S has the same attractive styling as its big brother, its camera can take good shots and the laser-assisted autofocus is quick to lock on to your subject.

Its processor puts in a very poor performance, its screen resolution doesn't impress, it comes with a pitiful amount of storage and it's running on an old version of Android KitKat.

The LG G3 S may come with the same name and physical design as its flagship brother, but the similarities are only skin deep. The G3 S's specs have been watered down in every way, making this little more than a low-end phone in a high-end body with a...

LG Xpression 2 (AT&T) review

 

Here's what you can get these days for just a dollar: A bad cup of coffee, two stamps, a bag of chips, or the LG Xpression 2 when you sign a new two-year contract with AT&T (without it, you'll spend $169.99).

AT&T's LG Xpression 2 has excellent call quality, a comfortable and responsive QWERTY keyboard, and a $1 on-contract pricetag.

The Xpression 2 takes poor, blurry photos, its low-res screen can be unresponsive to the touch, and internal speeds are slow.

Price-conscious users will dig the LG Expression 2's competitively low price, but AT&T has other feature phone alternatives that are worth the extra dough.

LG Cosmos - black (Verizon Wireless) review

 

LG's messaging phone offerings for Verizon Wireless continues to grow. There was the LG enV and the LG Voyager series of handsets, and at CTIA 2010, Verizon welcomed the newcomer LG Cosmos to the family. It is essentially a rejiggering of the LG Rumor...

The LG Cosmos has a solid and simple slider design with a tactile number keypad and a roomy QWERTY keyboard. You also get a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and GPS. Call quality is great as well.

The LG Cosmos lacks corporate e-mail support, and don't expect a music player or EV-DO on here.

The LG Cosmos makes a great choice for an affordable entry-level messaging phone for Verizon customers.
