Is the LG G6 overpriced for its specs?
LG has had a rough time of being elbowed out of the way by their more popular Korean smartphone competitor, Samsung. Samsung got first dibs on the Snapdragon 835 and LG tried to compensate by releasing the LG G6 slightly earlier than the Galaxy S8, but that doesn’t somehow make the G6 a more compelling buy.
Considering the price of the G6 is so close to the Galaxy S8, there’s little reason to not simply buy an S8 when the latter has a superior processor and camera or quality-of-life improvements like wireless charging.
It’s a major issue for LG lot of the tech inside the G6 is from 2016 and it’s difficult to obtain a version with 6GB RAM, which is quickly becoming the new standard for high-end flagships. It’s not that the G6 is a disappointing phone; it’s quite good, actually. The price difference between it and the cutting-edge competition, however, is not significant enough to justify the using year-old parts when everyone else is using the latest hardware.
One possible scenario is that LG slashes the price significantly in the coming months, which would be fantastic news for people who love the phone but don’t want to pay such a premium for it.
