The LG G6 has been out for some time in the US, but as of writing, the unlocked version can be bought from only one retailer – Best Buy. This is changing soon, however, as the phone is now up for pre-order from B&H, and with a pretty nice gift included for free: an LG Watch Style.

LG’s flagship smartphone, the G6 has been recently launched in the United States, but the South Korean company plans to launch a smaller version of it.
While the information hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, pictures of the unannounced LG G6 mini have just emerged online. Unlike the standard model that comes with a larger 5.7-inch display, the mini variant sports a 5.4-inch panel and a screen-to-body ratio of under 80%.
However, both LG G6 models feature the same 18:9 aspect ratio, so if you weren’t particularly a fan of it, you’d probably be disappointed. …
So, since last year, LG and Samsung have been offering a new feature on their flagship smartphones — an always on display. Even when your phone is sleeping, the display shows an ever-present, dimly-lit widget on the screen, giving you important information, such as the time, and missed notifications.

Getting tired of your current wallpaper every time you unlock your device? Well, good, for it’s time for yet another installment of our weekly pick with high-quality, extremely high- resolution wallpapers! Just how high-res, you wonder?

The Galaxy S8 is flying towards stores and pre-ordering early adopters. If you haven’t pulled the trigger yet, you might be wondering “Well, which one should I go for — S8 or G6?”. And now begins the infinite cycle of review-reading, camera sample comparisons, checking out various battery tests, benchmarks, and — for the patient ones — a couple of months’ wait to make sure that none of the two devices have a plethora of defects.

As we noted earlier today, LG has begun to roll its new G6 smartphone out to consumers across Europe and in some markets, the company is throwing in its mid-range K8 for good measure. In Spain, Germany and Romania, some buyers of the LG G6 will also receive the LG K8 (2017), which could potentially be passed on as a gift or used as a backup handset.
