    ---- Pros ---- - As of this writing, LG is offering a 2 year warranty if you register within 90 days of purchase - Dust immune and highly water resistant (IP68 rating) - 1440p high resolution screen - Its great looking IPS display won't suffer from the aging issues of OLED displays (such as the Pixel, OnePlus, Galaxy, and probably the new iPhone 8). These issues are: permanent dimming (due to even screen wear), color shift (due to blue pixels deteriorating faster than red and green), and burn in (due to uneven screen wear). - dual rear camera (regular with OIS & wide angle) - small bezels, so the phone is small for its screen size - no curved glass on the screen, so tempered glass screen protectors fit it nicely without large gaps or the fragility of rounded glass screen protectors - micro sd card slot - mostly a stock Android experience - wireless charging (regular speed, not fast) ---- Cons ---- - no bootloader unlock as of 2017.08.25 - no root as of 2017.08.25 - mono bottom firing speaker sounds poor (at least the volume is decent though) - the camera sensors use small 1.12 micron pixels which can result in noise in low light shots (for comparison the Pixel uses 1.55 micron pixels which are 38% bigger) - carrier and LG bloatware can't easily be uninstalled - wide angle lens does not have OIS - only 32gb of internal storage (the sd card slot is a saving grace) - still running Android 7.0.0 as of 2017.08.25 (Android 7.1.2 and 8.0.0 are out) - LG has a history of ending OS updates in 2 years or less (fingers crossed for Android O soon, and that it will get Android P before updates are halted) - some of the changes LG made to Android are arbitrary and undesirable (although its closer to stock than many competitors) ---- Other ---- It has a wide angle lens (better for capturing scenes) in favor of a telephoto lens (better for high quality, accurate, flattering portraits and optical zoom). The power button is integrated into the rear fingerprint sensor. If the phone is lying on a table, the power button can't be pressed without picking the phone up. However, the phone supports screen tap to wake, and double pressing the volume buttons will also turn on the screen. The screen ratio is 18:9, which is extra tall. This has several points of impact: - The 5.7 inch screen is the same width as a 5.2 inch 16:9 "normal" aspect ratio screen, only taller. - Although this screen format is gaining popularity (Galaxy S8 uses it too), it is still very new, so many apps do not utilize the extra space well or at all. LG has an option to force apps to run in more common aspect ratios, and to zoom into apps to utilize the extra space. But this solution doesn't always work perfectly. It can cause cropping that sometimes interferes with the normal operation of a program. Most video is 16:9, so you'll have black bars (effectively making the screen 5.2 inches), or you can zoom in and crop. ---- Conclusion ---- Right now this phone can be found at discounts that make it the best phone for the price by a wide margin. And the 2 year warranty is fantastic. But if price doesn't matter, I'd be inclined to consider the Pixel for reliable software updates, root, stock android without bloat, and massive camera sensor pixels for low light photography.

    LG G6 is a great value with flagship specs

    LG has done a great job with this phone. It has a large 5.7 inch display with vibrant colors and clarity. It has a snapdragon 821 processor so it is fast and can handle many applications without lag. It also is great for gaming if your in to that. I would give it a 5 star rating if it was not for the average battery life. If you stream a lot of videos, be prepared to charge the phone in the middle of the day. A solution to that is the LG G6 has fast charging so you can top up in about 30 minutes...just have a car charger. The dual 13 mega pixel camera is TOP NOTCH and has different modes that you can use to enhance your point and shoot experience. The front facing wide angle 5mp lenses does the job well and can satisfy selfie addicts out there. The build of the phone is phenomenal. When you're holding it to your ear it feels well-built and sturdy. The front has grill like glass three and the back has gorilla glass five so it gives you peace of mind that for the most part your phone is protected in case you drop it. The phone also a certified water and dust resistant which is an added benefit for you. The fingerprint sensor which also ask as the power on off button is very responsive and placed strategically well in the back below the dual camera. The phone cosmetically is beautiful. So if you want a flagship phone that also gives you the best value for your money, I encourage you to get the LG G6.

    A review from someone not bitter at Samsung

    Posted

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I see a lot of biased reviews on here who are acting like their last phone is an ex and this is new bae. Honestly I liked this phone. The controls on it are fluid and the way it thinks is mostly in tuned to mine. I got the phone and just started using it. It's also for the most part well built. The audio on it is great. So is the camera... immaculate. Sadly after some time, I went back to Samsung. And will not be doing LG as a phone ever again. My issues with this phone: 1. Micro sd and sim holder doesn't properly hold the cards. You have to do a trick to get it in and even then it's a pain. It's also not strongly built. If you're going to use that slot frequently like I probably will, it's going to break. It literally should be placed it in the holder and slide it in. It was like that with my note 8. 2. Phone recognition issues with my computer. It was very sketchy at times. Very off and on. I don't face this with my other phones and devices. We're talking Apple, Samsung etc. and before we go to I'm a LG hater... My monitors and watch are LG. I've worked with LG products for years. 3. LG community/development etc: If you're a android developer/IT/etc and you like to play with your phones. You're going to find out that this version of the LG G6 isn't supported by the LG developers site. There's a international version, a us version and sadly this sprint version. It's clear that LG really doesn't want people playing around with their phones. 4. The bloatware on this is excessive. In addition to the sprint and LG apps there's Amazon, Facebook and other apps that you can't get rid of. Disabling isn't the same as uninstalling. They're still taking up room and collecting data. Also on some functions it forces you to use apps. *3 to pay a bill. And it'll force you to do it on an app. Also the development on the apps are poo. Look up the reviews on there and there are people angry that they're forced to use these. It's a good phone. A great phone for the money. If you're going to be a casual or normal user. If you're an actual techie, dev etc that gets creative then I'd go elsewhere.

    Great phone, unbelievable deal

    Thanks to Best Buy for a great deal on this excellent phone. Our carrier wouldn't offer an upgrade deal for my wife's phone even though we'd been with them for 10 years and her current phone was 3 years old. It seems carriers these days only want to take care of new customers and not existing ones. We stopped by Best Buy just to see if perhaps they had something else. And if I wanted to stick with the big brand, the pricing was about the same as at the carrier's stores. But the Best Buy mobile consultant looked up this LG model and it happened to also be on special, we got it for a great deal. And it's not some weak phone; this is a high-end model. The newest LG at the time of this writing is the V30, but this G6 is fantastic. I have the Samsung S8, and it's quite comparable. Both have good cameras and screens, and the G6 outward-facing camera actually has a dual lens system, so it can apparently take even nicer wide shots; I don't know about that we haven't really played with that feature much yet and the documentation that comes with the phone is almost nothing (we'll have to go online to get info I suppose). But both phones also use the newer USB-C connection for fast charging; that was a sign to me that the G6 wasn't old or low-grade, they did a nice job with it. My son once had an older LG that crapped out on him after about a year and a half...we'll see what happens with this one, but it's so much better than that older one that I'm hopeful it will serve us well. And our carrier should thank Best Buy too, because we were considering leaving so we could upgrade the phone without breaking the bank.

    poor quality and too many quirks

    Posted
    Dissatisfiedgal

    I thought this phone would be great! I was so excited, I researched, read reviews that said it was an excellent phone, comparable to Samsung S7, and S8. Top of the line phone. I was sorely mistaken. The phone only lets you delete texts individially or entire conversations, you can't pick and choose multiple at one time like you can on samsungs or motorolas. Also if you have special tones set for people when you delete the whole text conversation you have to go back and reset their notification tone again bc it goes back to default tone. There also is no notification light to alert you of new messages, also very annoying... And the camera pops open at the slightest touch and snaps random photos. The list goes on from there. And today i learned the screen glass is basically paper thin, my phone dropped less than 2 feet with little impact, the screen is completely shattered. So now I had to shell out another $162 to replace with the so called protection plan. Needless to say the phone is not near what the reviews claim... LG appears to have cut corners and the phone is not sturdy and durable. I wish I had just spent the extra money and purchased another samsung or motorola. Save yourself the headache, dont make my same mistake...

    LG G6 - an excellent choice

    Posted

    After reading reviews, the two top Android phones appear to be the Samsung S8 and the LG G6. So when I was looking at new phones (and the current promotions on price), these were the two I considered. With its curved, edge to edge screen, I was concerned about the screen of the S8+ being more prone to breakage; one review supported that concern. Therefore, my choice became the G6. Not a bad choice, since I had been happy with my G4 for the last two years. The G4 felt more substantial in my hand, and I liked the feel of the curved back. Did the G6 feel "cheap" by comparison? After using it for the last week, I am enjoying the feel of the G6. It feels light and smooth, and now it even feels more sophisticated than the G4. It seems to be more responsive, and the sound is excellent. My wife and I each got one (her first smart phone), and we also enjoy the wireless charge function, which it now shares with the Samsung. The S8 still appears to be sexier than the G6, and I'd like to think of myself as making logical decisions rather than emotional. But, one accident and a broken screen... The G6 is a great decision.

    Outstanding Build Quality

    Caveats: 1) my previous phone, an LG G3 died after almost four years, so any upgrade was going to be a big deal. 2) It's new and I'm still learning what this thing can do. 3) Bleeding-edge features are not that important to me. I like a solid, do-everything device. The G6, so far, is everything I wanted in a near-top-of-line Android phone. The build quality stands out. The device is elegant looking and has enough heft to it to feel sturdy without being heavy. The fingerprint reader on the power button reacts instantly. Display is fantastic, and everything "feels" fast. In terms of speed, it stacks up well against competing devices I am familiar with like the iPhone 7 and Samsung GS7 and GS8. Battery seems to have settled in and gets me through 36 hours of light-to-moderate usage without trouble. The deal I got from Best Buy as an upgrading Sprint customer was way better than what Sprint offered me directly. I don't change phones often so it was interesting to participate in the crapshoot.

    I upgraded from the Galaxy S5 and am pretty happy with the purchase. The phone is very sleek and feels great when I use it. It responds quickly and loads applications even faster. The large screen is too large for some apps, but can be solved with the press of a finger in every situation that I have come across. The video and audio quality is magnificent, and I love that it has the main speaker on the bottom of the phone instead of on the back panel. The battery life is also better than anything I have ever had in a phone. I can use the phone for two full days with low to moderate use without the battery dying on me. The only thing that I don't like about it is the look of the user interface. It feels very much like an Apple product, but it's not enough to make me hate it, even the slightest. Overall, the phone feels, looks, sounds, and responds great! The battery life is wonderful, but the UI isn't my style. Great phone, and a solid investment from LG.
