Reviews for the LG G6

90.2% LG G6 Smartphone First Impressions | Notebookcheck
After many leaks in the previous days and weeks, it was not a big secret any longer that the new LG G6 flagship smartphone is going to be officially introduced at the MWC in Barcelona. It is done now and we were there live. Here are our first impressions.
LG G6 Full Review – too late or too early?
Source: Manila Shaker English
LG basically delivered a sleek looking designed flagship smartphone that also offers a bit of innovation and features that you can mostly find under its tier. However, it’s hard to justify the asking price of the G6 especially when it’s a little bit behind the hardware department.

Overall, the LG G6 is a good phone but the only feature that makes it stand out is the tall 18:9 screen. I'm not a big fan of the wide angle lens and the slow camera performance didn't really excite me much. Other than these two features, there really isn't much else that differentiates the G6 with other phones. And that won't help LG- especially when the Samsung Galaxy S8 is right around the corner.

LG G6 Review: The Good, The Bad And The Takeaway
Source: iTech Post English
LG G6 is a great Android phone that is waterproof and has a taller screen. Its older processor might be a red flag for some, but it is still able to deliver a smooth use. Furthermore, its camera has new features that users could have fun with. However, for those considering this particular handset, they might want to see what its more touted and more expensive rival (Galaxy S8) has to offer.

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 the best of the best for the first time in ages. Whether it has what it takes to beat those rivals, though, is a matter of opinion.

2017 is shaping up to be a fantastic year for Android smartphones. With Samsung, Apple, Huawei and others all expected to bring the very best they have this year, the G6 needed to be a success. Luckily, it does just this, and by setting a new standard for flagships in 2017, LG has laid down a marker that other OEMs need to equal or surpass. Simply put, LG’s G6 represents the future of what we should expect from a flagship smartphone.

LG G6 review: A return to form
Source: Android Central English
When I look back on many of the gimmicks LG has tried to use to sell smartphones over the years, the most striking thing about the G6 is how this time the focus is on just making a good, balanced phone that does most thing really well, and a few things. As much as you could argue that the taller display is indeed a gimmick, LG's doing enough with it that it's not just there for the sake of it.

LG G6 Review: Back to the Smartphone Basics

It’s a solid black rectangle with the same high-end specs we expect of flagship phones and an excellent camera. There are certainly no killer flaws in the G6, beyond a certain lack of individual personality. If you want a big screen without the hassle of a giant-sized phone body, however, this is almost certainly the phone you’re looking for.

LG stalwarts will gripe that the battery is no longer removable, but most users won’t care. And the addition of IP68 water resistance is good tradeoff, as is support for Qi and PMA wireless charging. (As long as you buy a U.S. model, anyway. Wireless charging is limited to models sold in the States, while quad-DAC is only on the Korea model, and the 64GB variant is exclusive to a handful of Asian countries.)

As for the bend test, the LG G6 proves to be a very sturdy phone that's practically unbendable. Bending the phone from the back or from the front shows almost zero flex. This means that overall, there is no question as to how durable the LG G6 is. It survives scratches, burns and even strong bends.

All in all, compromise is probably the name of the LG G6’s game. While it splurged on the display, the waterproofing and the cameras, it chose to be less generous in other aspects. Some through no fault of its own, like the Snapdragon 835 situation, while others, like Quad DAC and wireless charging, it decided based on keeping costs low.

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, have you reached a verdict? Your Honor, we most certainly have. In the case of the LG G6, we hereby find the smartphone… fantastic! As I said before, you can’t even compare the G6 to last year’s G5. It’s as if they were made by two entirely different companies. From the in-hand feel to the ability to customize LG’s ugly theme, the G6 is a real winner in my book.

LG is closer than ever to being a real threat to Samsung. The G6 may not be as experimental or quirky as its G5 predecessor, but that's not a bad thing. Other than having an "older" processor, it can rival the S8 spec-by-spec because it's playing it safe.

Like we said above, we’re keeping an open mind until the full review is complete, but color us impressed. LG has put together a very solid, if unspectacular device. I think if Samsung wasn’t releasing the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus at the same time, people would be all over the G6. The build quality is very good, the software seems to have taken steps forward, and there are a lot of other little improvements.

LG G6, one month on: A great phone, and the best LG has ever made
Source: Android Central English
LG's marketing power and ability to leverage current mind share just can't stand up to the likes of Samsung, and it will rely heavily on carrier partnerships around the world to push the G6. That's just a reality of where the market — and LG's smartphone business — stands right now. But despite the fact that its sales will be far behind the Galaxy S8's no matter what, the G6 is nothing short of a great phone. If LG keeps making G series phones like this, only good things can happen from here.

Despite its up-and-down G-series history, LG has knocked it out of the park with the G6. Enough to make us half forget the modular "Friends" approach of last year's G5.

The LG G6 could not have come at a better time.

LG G6 Battery Life Reveals Impressive Improvements
Source: iTech Post English
Overall, the LG G6 seems like a very valid Android option this 2017. For one, its design has improved, especially with its big screen-to-body ratio. Additionally, its display is also great with its high-end 1440 x 2880 pixel resolution. It may not have the latest Snapdragon processor, but as of its time of launch, the newest processor from Qualcomm hasn't been spread out to manufacturers yet. Additionally, LG G6's Snapdragon 821 chipset is still quite the fastest processor used by the smartphones in the current market. On top of all these, the LG G6 is also equipped with a competitive set of rear cameras. Note that the LG G6 comes with a dual 13 MP primary camera. So overall, the battery life isn't the only thing that improved in LG's new flagship phone.

The LG G6 is a phone that wears its ambition on its sleeve.

The LG G6 is not a perfect flagship smartphone, but I do think it is (by far) one of the most exciting LG smartphones yet.

LG G6

Ditching the modular design was the correct move by LG. It was handled poorly, miscommunicated and failed miserably. With the G6, LG has a phone that I can see being much more successful.

LG G6 preview: All screen, no frame
Source: Pocket Lint English
It's an interesting move from LG. Last year, the company bet on modular smartphones, and that didn't turn out so well. This year, it's about giving customers a big screen, without a bulky device. And we're intrigued to say the least.

LG G6 Hands-On Review: Incredible Screen, Fantastic Camera And Google Assistant
Source: Forbes English
If I'm going to be totally honest, the LG G5 was a disappointment last year. I didn't have any major problems with how it worked, or how it was built, but it didn't have the gloss I think a high-end smartphone needs to have. The modularity was a good idea, that was ultimately neglected and didn't offer what it needed to be a true success.

LG G6 hands-on review
Source: Stuff TV English
Still, with no launch date confirmed, and prices still TBC, it’s tough to know how the G6 will stack up against the rest of 2017’s promising smartphone line-up. And with MWC only just kicking off, we’ll have to wait until a full review to see if it can stick it out at the top.

LG G6 initial review: A return to form
Source: Android Central English
When I look back on many of the gimmicks LG has tried to use to sell smartphones over the years, the most striking thing about the G6 is how this time the focus is on just making a good, balanced phone that does most thing really well, and a few things. As much as you could argue that the taller display is indeed a gimmick, LG's doing enough with it that it's not just there for the sake of it.

LG G6 Review
Source: Ubergizmo English English
The LG G6 is a beautiful handset that is built with purpose: battery life, simplicity, beauty, durability, and reliability. LG has largely succeeded in achieving these goals into a solid handset that leads the way for a 2017 transition from 16:9 to 18:9 (2:1) display aspect ratio.

One thing’s for sure, in a year of really promising phones, it will need to put up a good fight to hold on to its Product of the Year glory. Only time will tell if it’s done enough.

So, there you have it for this quick look at the LG G6! We have some idea of what is to come in the smartphone world this year, and LG is certainly facing some stiff competition. We can only wait to see of the G6 is what LG needs to gain some much needed traction in this ultra-competitive space.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
