Top Customer Reviews
All LG improvements are great: the 18:9 size, camera, dual lens, battery life etc.
What hasn't been advertised are the improvements to the dual SIM software (compared to the V10 dual sim) which finally make it useful and simple to use. Easy switching sims for outgoing calls, answering on the same sim received, allocation of sims to data, etc.
Only fault is missing second sim slot and separate SD card
Because this device is the Asian model, a Hifi audio Quad DAC is included in place of the wireless charging. Note that wireless charging is only included on the North American/US model which omits the Hifi Quad DAC. Another difference is in storage capacity with 64GB on this model and only 32GB on the US model, both of which can be expanded upon via microSD card up to 2TB.
I personally prefer the amoled displays made popular by Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones but this IPS display is itself pretty stunning to look at. Like the Galaxy S8, the G6's display abandons the traditional 16:9 aspect ratio in favor of a newer 18:9 ratio which makes the screen look taller when handled vertically. Measuring in at 5.7 inches diagnally, the new taller aspect ratio makes it feel like you're holding a phone with a traditional 5.2 inch display as opposed to a giant 5.7 inch phablet. Feels great in hand and very easy to grip even with the shiny fingerprint loving glass back.
While i don't take a whole lot of pictures or video, i can say that the cameras on the G6 are pretty amazing. There are 2 13-megapixel main cameras on the back; one with a traditional lens and the other with an incredible 125 degree wide angle lens. Again i'm not the most knowlegable when it comes to camera technolgy (or technology in general) but the few pictures i have taken with either camera look very pleasing to my eyes. A 5-megapixel camera adorns the top left corner of the front and is capable of taking some very nice pictures too.
If there is one area i have to be critical of, its the battery life. The 3,300 MaH battery is a sizeable one on paper but in reality its just average. i struggle to get more than 4 hours of screen on time almost every time. 4 hours might be pretty good for some people but if you're a heavier user, you may be disappointed. Standby time however is very good, which is to be expected with Android Nougat's battery optimizations. I leave it at 100% overnight and wake up 8 hours later to 100% on a regular basis. Despite my reservations, I still make it through a whole day pretty regularly with about 20-30% at the end of the day. With light usage, you could probably do better. Fast charging is available, just keep in mind that if you're importing this device, you may not get a compatible charging brick out of the box.
I'm not a professional phone reviewer but i wanted to cover all the things i felt was most important to me and to you. I know i left alot of things out and i apologize. I hope this review can help you in your decision to either buy or not to buy.
Although I love LG the brand dearly - I have their washer & dryer, as well as over 10 of their TVs over the course of the last 10 years, all the way back from their plasmas to LCDs, up to the 2016 4K OLED TV we bought last summer - yet I have never been inclined to buy their phones. It was either a Samsung or iPhone, because whatever phones they had, however good they became, they were just never good enough to eclipse Samsung or Apple for me. And before that, I've bought HTC and Nokia phones. So they were not even in the discussion pool. That was because as good as their brand was, as good as their TV's were, they never truly were able to translate that successful pedigree into their phones for some weird reason. For a company that has the best TV screens in their OLED technology, it is always irrationally absent in their phones. Yet Samsung, who gave up the OLED TV race to LG in 2013, have by far the best OLED phone screens that no one else can come close. So when I lost my Samsung S6 Edge a few weeks ago, I was in quite a conundrum. I did not want to buy another S6 Edge - it was time to move on - and the S7 Edge had ballooned to phablet category. There was always the S7, but to me that was a step backwards in design philosophy, although the Pink Gold flavored almost got me the hook - Samsung Galaxy S7 32 GB Unlocked Phone - G930FD Dual SIM - Pink Gold. The S8 was not going to be released for another month, and the iPhone 7 was too much of an iPhone 6. I will get the iPhone X later this year anyway, but I wanted something good in the meantime. I even considered the beautifully crafted but underwhelming Sony Xperia XZs - Unlocked Smartphone - 64GB - Dual SIM - Ice Blue (US Warranty). But in the end, I "settled" on the LG G6, and here is why.
First of all, we all have to discuss the elephant in the room, which is that big beautiful screen. It has a weird 18:9 or 2:1 ratio, and measures 5.7 inches diagonally, with its 2880 x 1440 resolution and 564ppi pixel density. Like I mentioned earlier, the screen technology is not OLED, but instead IPS LCD. To its credit, it is probably the best LCD screen to date. It certainly is one of the brightest, with peak intensity reaching to almost 700 nits or cd/m2. It is the first and only phone available to be certified HDR, and in both Dolby Vision and the lesser HDR 10 standards. However, when you compare it to the very best of OLEDs, such as the Samsung S7, then you can tell the difference, which is better color saturation, contrast, and brightness for the OLED. And with the upcoming S8, that difference will only widen. So although this is a superb LCD screen, I am still left scratching my head why LG didn't go with OLED when they clearly have the pedigree to do so.
When you look at the screen and see how little bezels there are, especially for the top and bottom portions, it really takes you aback. Watching movies and videos on this screen truly is a blast. The 18:9 ratio is more near to the theatrical standard of 21:9 than to most screens' 16:9 ratio, so there are fewer black bars, and the immersion factor is excellent. But LG hasn't forsaken the backside, so even that looks beautiful. The glass and metal material philosophy works great for phones, and in the LG this combination shines. The back finish have a brushed metal yet shiny look that screams gorgeous. I chose the silver scheme, which I feels best exemplifies the phone's aesthetics. I love the symmetrical layout of the two camera modules flanking the flash, with the power button/fingerprint sensor just below it. It is a pleasure to hold. Although it is meaty and hefty, it feels like a million bucks. You instantly realize you are handling a premium phone.
Speaking of the camera, I feel this is the best OVERALL main camera system right now. There might be faster cameras like the Sony that can capture video footage at 960 frames per second, but the two 13MP cameras make it a very diverse and capable shooter. The "regular" camera is an f1.8 module with a 71 degree field of view, while the wide-angle is a darker f2.4 but with a 125-degree FOV. The standard camera is great for low-light situations, but if you didn't need that, the wide-angle is the better and more useful everyday shooter. You can fit more subjects into the shot, and the distortion is minimal. Note though, that you do lose the image stabilization with the wide-angle lens, and have to focus it manually, which to me was never an issue. The front selfie cam is a ho-hum 5MP shooter that doesn't stand out from the crowd.
What I don't like though, is that LG had to compromise with Qualcomm to let Samsung have the first dibs with the latest and greatest Snapdragon 835, and LG had to settle for the 821. Everything feels snappy enough, especially with the 4GB of RAM, but nonetheless, most of the other premium phones of this year from now on will use the faster and more efficient 835, and that is a shame. The memory is also limited to just 32GB for the US version, but you can find the international dual SIM version like this one with 64GB, and the microSD slot can accept up to 2TB more! There is also Quick Charge 3.0, and wireless Qi and PMA charging, and that's always convenient and everyday useful. Finally, the connection is USB Type C, and the software is Android Nougat 7.0. I wish the speaker was better, or ever better yet, there would be two of them like on HTC phones.
The dimensions of the phone are 148.9 x 71.9 x 7.9 mm, and weighs 163 grams. By comparison, the Samsung S8 is 68.1mm wide by 8.1mm thick by 148.9mm tall, and weighs 155 grams. So although the G6 is much more svelte than other phones and phablets of similar screen sizes, compared to the S8, it is noticeably wider. The height though, is amazingly identical. For further comparisons, the iPhone 7 is 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm (138 g), the iPhone 7 Plus is 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 mm (188 g).
Taking everything into consideration, if this phone had been priced at $750 like the Samsung S8, I think it would have easily sunk in the sea of many beautiful and capable premium phones. Essentially, the $100 makes up for the inferior processor and screen, and less memory. But $100 is a real difference for most people, so at this price point it deserves 5 stars. For LG to really steal the Samsung S8's thunder, it should consider lowering the price to $600, or include a better bundle than just Google Home. The included VR headset included with the S8 might be more gimmicky, but I bet people will use that more often than Google Home. Samsung has an even better bundle for just $100, which includes a Harman/AKG Bluetooth headphone, plus a Samsung 256GB microSD card, each of which is worth about $150, so you are getting about $300 worth of value for only $100. I think LG should bundle something really great, and price is at $700. How LG supports and markets this phone will be vital to its success. As a standalone phone, it checks most boxes, and deserves success. But nothing in life works in a vacuum, so LG must be aggressive and do more than what it is doing now. Otherwise, just like every other year, it will be trampled on by superior phones and even bigger marketing machines that are Samsung and Apple. I am happy with mine for now, but will it be enough to convince you?
