LG G6 smartphone review: A decent enough phone in isolation, but it can't challenge a flagship - Tech2

 

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Apple iPhone 7 are unquestionably flagship smartphones. Is the LG G6 worthy of that title?

I really wanted to like the G6. The concept videos and the initial leaks described a stunning phone. But LG was too late. LG made a grave mistake by launching this phone after the stunning Samsung Galaxy S8.

LG G6 review: Good phone, but not the best

 

LG G6 stands out for two features, the dual rear camera and the compact form factor

LG G6 Review

 

The LG G6 is a decent flagship, with functional design, a good camera and more. But there's really nothing that sets it apart, nor does it outdo the Samsung Galaxy S8.

IP68 Certified: Water and Dust proof ; Ergonomic ; Nice display

Sub-par performance ; Battery life should be better

The LG G6 is a decent flagship, with a functional design and nice camera. It's really an adequate phone as far as flagships are concerned. The only problem is, flagships should be more than just adequate. It doesn't hold a candle to the Galaxy S8, but...

LG G6

 

LG G6 review release date, price and specs: The G6 the Korean brand's best-looking phone to date, but have there been that many improvements over the LG G5?

Great display ; Unique wide-angle camera ; Eye-catching look

You’re paying top price for older internals ; Camera isn’t a huge improvement ; UK model lacking features

By going with a much sleeker water-resistant design, LG has had to sacrifice the removable battery that many seemed to like on previous iterations. I can’t say I’ve ever felt the need to carry around a spare battery, especially when battery packs are...

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: 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...

Huawei P10 vs LG G6 dual camera shootout: Sightseeing in Barcelona

 

We're saying goodbye to yet another Mobile World Congress, but we have a few days left to hang around the beautiful city of Barcelona. Filled with Gaudi's masterpieces and amazing architecture in general, it would serve as an excellent arena for camera...

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

 

An interesting new screen, but audio performance has taken a step back...

Sharp, bright screen with HDR support ; Decent and fun cameras ; Good battery life ; Fast performance

Screen lacks content to make the most of it ; Audio needs to be better balanced and more dynamic

The LG G6 has a new screen and lots to like besides, but its audio performance lets it down

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...
