One week with the LG G6: Very impressed!

  • Added:  3 months ago
  • Final impressions are still pending as all of our LG G6 units are first-look prototypes, and that's actually what's most striking, as this doesn't behave like an unfinished product.

    Most of us in the tech world still reminisce over how much we miss the old G2, it was the first phone to bring a phablet experience into smartphone ergonomics, and the G6 embodies every bit of what made that legacy phone popular..

    One of my favorite things about this phone after using it for a week is the feel. Watch our full video to learn more.

    no doubt G6 is the best of LG for now. I recently switched from my Galaxy S6 to G6 .. I love the feel on hand of G6.. it feels solid and it looks great... love the display colors and wide lens. however I wish the LG G6 had some minor changes and few new features, #1 the single len camera... if you are not using the wide angle feature just one len is a poor aperture, it captures very limited space on the screen.
    #2 audio jack in the buttom and not on top... there are few people like me that still use earplugs when video call and having the cables constantly on the screen is annoying.
    #3 right side button... #4 notification light big time. #5 IR blaster #6 some decent emoji. for technology sake... g6 stock emojis are horrible.... these are things that I easily can call out coming from Samsung brand.

    thinking to upgrade to this from G2. I was so contented with my G2 and didn't have any plan to change phone until it got broken. my phone can't recognize any SIM cards now. i still use it for internet surfing through wifi. i wish I'll find g6 as great as my g2.

    2:05 what ? 3.04 GB in use and 667 mb free ? I know how ram works in Android but isn't that so high (if he is not using 10-12 apps at that time) ? I think there should be more headroom for intensive apps.

    I listen to you and yesterday I traded in my iphone 7 plus for the LG G6 and I regret it. You say Samsung has slugish software, but I've had Samsung and I've never had any problem with it and this phone DOES HAVE slugish software. Thankfully I have tmobiles jump on demand and I will consider trade in again, cause this phone is gettong in my nerves.

    I have an older LG and a Very outdated Samsung. My only complaint is that even my ancient Samsung would accept and utilize free music equalizer and bass boost apps yet the LG will not utilize the same app. Will the G6? otherwise this is a deal breaker. What good is a music player if all u can do is turn the vol up and down? Huge letdown!!!

    I am not a fan of glass back phone but it seems that all the phones are making the switch but now the LG G6 doesn't have the removable battery which was the only reason to buy the LG G2, 3, 4, & 5. So the 2 changes they made is a reason why I am not buying a g6 in addition LG customer service is the bottom barrel I owned 4 LG's and had a manufactures defect with all of them turned all 4 to LG under the manufactures defect and all 4 were returned to me with 0 repairs or explanation why LG did not make any repairs. LG doesn't warrant the manufactures warranty so take that into consideration when buying this phone.

    I was super stoked on the S8 plus until i held it and I saw I had to plunk down 130 bucks on T-Mobile. For what? A big screen? I have an iPhone 7 Plus and I'm looking to shake things up and the G6 just climbed to the top.

    "Ramhog"... using more ram is a good thing Jaime. That's why you saw no issues. Apps were properly being kept into ram and left efficiently ready to be used. It's a sign of good software.

    OMG you and your nit-picking never makes any practical sense. How NASTY it would look if the video is tucked to one side instead of the middle? Ugh, it's best to keep your opinion to yourself, and just review the device, it's so damn simple.

    RAM hog? One would imagine after all the Android reviews, you would know by now how Android manages RAM memory. It's RAM should NEVER be empty. If it is, it means it's very poorly managing it. The fuller the RAM is, the better the performance and power management, and multitasking performance it has.

    I've always be a lover of LG phones since my first encounter with Shine (amazing camera and compactness), followed by Arena (to which G6 looks similar), G3 and now Stylus 2 Plus. I've used phones from every other major brand (Samsung, Apple, Sony, BB, Huawei, Motorola, Nokia etc) and I know the differences well. G6 is almost amazing except without the signature removable battery feature, which would have made a perfect phone including a stylus - agreed?
