The LG G6 is like no other Smartphone LG has made, and it’s certainly a step in the right direction.
So this wasn’t expected by the company but yes they did it! The phone doesn’t have open able back cover which might disappoint. But then now a day’s every other company is doing that thing.
This phone is launched on April 16th 2017 in India but it’s still not in the market.
So before it will appear you should know its specs and drawbacks.
So let’s get started!
- A Great display
- Unique wide-angle camera
- Eye-catching look(with curved display, not the edge)
- You’re paying top price for older internals
- Camera isn’t a huge improvement
- UK model lacking features
- 18:9 quad-HD display
- HDR10 and Dolby Vision
- Android 7.0
- 2 x 13-megapixel rear cameras
- Very thin bezel
- Snapdragon 821, 4GB RAM
- 32GB storage, microSD
- 3,300mAh battery, USB-C
- Wireless charging (US-only)
- Quad-DAC (Korea-only)
- Dual-SIM (select Eastern European countries)
- Manufacturer: LG
- Price-(still not knowing!)
LG G6 – DISPLAY
Rather than the typical 16:9 aspect ratio seen on almost every other smartphone, LG has opted for an 18:9 ratio display (basically 2:1) that provides a taller panel in a smaller body.
The 5.7-inch display – a sizeable increase from the 5.3-inch panel of the G5 – sits inside a shell that’s barely bigger than its predecessor and one that’s noticeably smaller than the 5.5-inch Iphone 7 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
One side effect of cramming a bigger screen into a shell of this size is that the corners of the panel are now rounded, rather than at right angles. It’s a little odd at first, but easy to becomes accustomed to.
It matches the overall curviness of the phone, but looks best on the black model. On my white review unit, the black border between the panel and bezel is fairly prominent, and the corner curves aren’t perfectly circular. It’s a small issue, but once you’ve noticed it, it’s hard to forget.
The other issue is black bars.
LG G6 – DESIGN
For the first time I can remember, LG has crafted a phone that looks attractive. The lack of a thick bezel instantly draws the eye, and LG has also ditched that dodgy metal-sprayed plastic that caused so much controversy on the G5.
There’s a slab of Gorillas Glass 5 on the rear (interestingly, it’s only Gorilla Glass 3 on the front), and a metal rim running around the sides, which LG claims adds some much-needed rigidity that’s lost with the unorthodox screen.
The standby switch – with a fingerprint sensor tucked inside – can still be found on the rear of the handset and the volume rocker is on the side.
However, unlike many phones that use capacitive pads, this switch actually depresses and offers decent feedback. Just below the camera is the perfect place for a fingerprint sensor, simply because it’s where my finger naturally rests when I pick up a phone. A major concern I have with the Samsung Galaxy S8 is the strange placement of the fingerprint scanner, which sits directly next to the camera sensor.
My biggest issue with the fingerprint scanner on the LG G6 is actually its speed and sensitivity.
So the LG G6 is an attractive phone, once you get over the wide-aspect screen. But I worry this novelty will wear thin. We’re bound to see a greater number of phones using this aspect screen this year, as the Galaxy S8 proves, and the G6 lacks the wow factor of Samsung’s curved edges.
Moreover, the black, white and silvery-blue colours in which the phone is available lack imagination, and the glass-backed design with metal sides feels a bit “me too” at this stage. You’ll find it on everything from budget Honor and Alcatel handsets to higher-end devices.
