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

 

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 review: a great gimmick-free smartphone

 

With a stunning screen, Google Assistant, 60fps 4K video recording, expandable storage, this is LG's best phone, ever

Large 18:9 display ; Premium design ; Waterproofing

Slightly hollow feel ; UI ; 2016 chipset

LG G6 review

 

Bezels get banished in LG's best flagship phone to date

Gorgeous looks thanks to those super-slim screen bezels ; Superb screen with HDR and clever software to properly use that new aspect ratio ; Camera quality is great in both standard and wide angle modes

Battery life is merely average

The G6 doubles down on the things people actually want their phones - and the end result is the best one LG has ever made

LG G6 review

 

A great screen in a stylish body

Great screen ; Water-resistant body

Older chipset ; Removable battery gone ; Expensive for what's inside

The G6 is a great phone from LG, one that pushes the brand back to the forefront of the smartphone pile in terms of design and screen. However, lower-spec performance and not upgrading the camera in a meaningful way while still charging a huge premium...

LG G6 review: The Samsung Galaxy S8 alternative now only £350

 

The LG G6's stretched-out display makes it a pleasure to use and at its new reduced price it's a bargain

Display ; Camera app ; Build quality

Price ; Performance

So while the LG G6 is a fantastic phone in its own right, it isn’t the Samsung Galaxy S8 killer we were hoping for. If the price falls as quickly as the LG G5’s price did last year, this conclusion may change. For now, though, I advise you wait and see...

LG G6 review

 

LG's recent smartphone struggles should be set to change with the G6. But does the LG brand hold the necessary clout to go toe to toe with Samsung?

LG G6 vs LG G6 Plus

 

We were big fans of the LG G6 and now there is another version in the LG G6 Plus. We compare the two to see which is best.

With the G6 and G6 Plus being virtually identical save for extra storage, plus Hi-res audio and Qi charging it’s hard to pick one over the other until we know the price of the Plus. The DAC and extra built-in storage is definitely a bonus, but as the...

LG G6 review: Like the Galaxy S8, only cheaper

 

With the G6, LG ditches the mod life and goes conventional. It's boring, but it works.

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: In Depth

 

LG G6 review: LG's 1st big flagship phone of 2017 is a media beast. But what about the performance, battery life and general user experience? We find out.

Gorgeous Dolby Vision screen ; Solid battery life ; Flexible camera tech ; Sleek design

Pricey

The LG G6 is the first essential flagship phone of 2017. This time around LG has concentrated hard on the features that demanding users expect, delivering unique abilities such as the Dolby Vision support to rise the G6 above the competition. In every...
