Review: LG G6
The G6 is LG's best phone. It's LG's best turn at design, best example of engineering as an art form, best in raw performance, and best in delivering a good experience across the board. It has so few weaknesses I can hardly think what they might be.
You just might fall in love with the phone at first sight. The glass-and-metal chassis is classy and assembled brilliantly. It's a fine size and the screen will surely push all your buttons with eye-popping visuals. Water resistance has become a table-stakes feature for flagship phones and the G6 has it covered. I appreciate the 3.5mm headphone jack, USB-C port, wireless charging, and memory card support. Wireless performance was great, voice call quality is very good, and battery life is right where it needs to be.
The Android 7 operating system runs flawlessly and LG's user interface strengthens it by adding more ways to customize the experience. The camera application is truly powerful, if a bit overwhelming. Photo and video quality is up there with the best the market has to offer.
The fact that LG kept the price close to the $675 mark is just amazing. It's a bargain. Who should buy this phone? Anyone. Everyone. The LG G6 is awesome.
The last twelve months have given us some of the most compelling smartphones ever made. New screen shapes, advanced cameras, and waterproof bodies have improved the everyday experience of those willing to fork over lots of cash for high-end handsets.
Summer is here, which means it's time to go on vacation! Whether you prefer to make day trips to local points of interest, or plan far-flung adventures that span the globe, you're going to want your trusty smartphone by your side.
Can't decide between the LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8? It's a tough choice, to be sure.
LG's flagship handset for the year is the gorgeous G6. It's a beautiful handset that packs an a amazing amount of technology into its slim frame.

LG says its forthcoming flagship will have a redesigned FullVision display that adds a number of new technologies. The screen measures 6.1 inches across the diagonal at a new aspect ratio of 19.5:9 to account for the additional screen real estate forming the notch.
