MWC has indeed cemented its reputation as the world’s largest and most important exhibition for the mobile industry. While Samsung’s decision to delay the unveiling of its Galaxy S8 was regrettable, the other big Android phone makers stepped up and displayed some truly remarkable handsets.
After admitting that the G5 was somewhat of a failure sales-wise, LG got back to the drawing board in search of ideas for a new and better flagship smartphone. That’s how we got the LG G6, which was officially announced yesterday at MWC 2017.
Right now, it seems that the G6 is indeed better than the G5 in pretty much every aspect, but we want to know if you like it.
The first thing that strikes you about the LG G6 is that, although it sports a very generous 5.7-inch screen, the phone itself isn’t larger than devices featuring 5.5-inch, or even 5.3-inch screens. This …
With the newly announced G6, LG broke a number of traditions for its flagship line – the phone is no longer with a removable battery, and at the same time carries a chassis made out of premium, glass and metal materials. It’s certainly one of the most beautiful LG phones in the G-series, and has the specs to match, with a novel 5.7″ display that is Dolby Vision/HDR 10 certified, flaunting a fresh 2:1 aspect ratio to make it futureproof.

LG lifted the wraps off the G6 at MWC earlier today, finally making the sleek flagship official. It is truly a sight to behold with its beautiful 5.7-inch “FullVision” display and its almost bezel-less design, but for all the bells and whistles that it offers, at its core pumps last year’s Snapdragon 821 processor.
With that said, and apart from all its fresh luster, what more does the LG G6 have to offer when compared to a similarly spec’d phone, say, last year’s excellent OnePlus 3T, which too is powered by the SD 821?
Well, LG’s new flagship is here in all of its fullscreen glory. Well, to be fair, we haven’t reached that futuristic point in time where all we will be holding is a display just yet, but the G6’s bezels are impressively thin. But does that mean that you should be throwing the G5 out the window? And how well does the new handset perform next to the rather snappy 2016 flagship? Let’s take a closer look!
Another year, another change in concepts for LG. The modular idea that was introduced with the LG G5 wasn’t exactly a success and has quickly been dropped …
The LG G6 is out and it’s definitely a drool-worthy piece of hardware. Amazing screen-to-body ratio, beautiful design, and a lot of time spent on fine-tuning its operation and performance, as per LG’s own word. Surely, there are LG device owners out there right now, spending more time than one would consider reasonable staring at pictures of the new phone and then beaming over to their own G5. There’s that burning question:
