LG G5 was not a showstopper. It struggled to cope up with competition. Nevertheless it set the ground for LG to innovate and come up with a better looking and working phone, that is the LG G6. there are several things that LG G6 seems to have retained from the erstwhile G5. to begin with, they both look the same, except for the screen dimensions which is 0.4 inches diagonally stretched than G5.
There is so much more to tell about this gorgeous new phone from LG G6. here goes a drill down of the actual external and internal gadgetry that makes up the LG G6.
With a humble 5 MP front camera with 100-degree viewing angle in the front, your selfies are not gonna look great with the LG G6. However, the rear dual camera with 13 MP resolution, camera sensors and 125-degree viewing angles fit the bill for a good camera phone.
Also, the rear camera hump in the previous versions have been given a skip in the G6. The rear body is made of glass fiber and metal frame with a smooth finish, something similar to Samsung and HTC models.
The front camera could have been better given the hefty price tag and also being the premium flagship of the brand.
It is with the display that the LG G6 strikes a difference in its segment. The phone has a 5.5 inch screen with 1440 x 1880 pixels resolution that is made to have a rather unique aspect ratio of 18:9. The peculiar resolution gives a rather longer and bigger screen space which is also easy to handle with a single hand. However, there is catch with the resolution.
Some apps and videos may have to tweaked manually to fit the screen perfectly. Another highlight feature of the LG G6 display is Comfort View: a blue light filtering feature takes away the strain from continuous usage.
A mix of display goodies that makes the Lg G6 stand out from the crowd.
Like said before, LG G6 comes with a metal and glass build provides water resistance. It weighs 163 g and comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 back panel so that you don’t have to worry about putting keys or other hard objects in your pocket with the phone. Also there is a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner that is easily reachable to unlock the phone or to use apps.
LG G6 also comes with IP68 dust and water resistance (up to 1 meter and 30 minutes), which is pretty decent and adequate enough to survive unexpected downpours. As for colors, you can make a pick of your LG G6 from White, Black or Titan (Silver).
A non-removable Li-Po 3300 mAh battery gives enough juice for LG G6 to stand a day or longer with continuous usage. If you are planning to use the ‘Always-On’ feature, then the battery life will be further lower. Well, guess the LG G6 would after all force you to carry a power bank with you always if you are someone who cannot find a charging port every now and then.
Looks attractive and gives a premium feel that is expected of a flagship phone.
The latest Android Nougat 7.0 with LG’s latest UI powers the user experience of LG G6. Also, LG G6 becomes the first phone after Pixel to get the Google Assistant.
4GB RAM running on Snapdragon 821 processor will manage the multitasking chores. Don’t expect the LG G6 to deliver a high-end gaming experience. There is a limit to what the 4 GB RAM can handle.
Furthermore, we hear brands gunning to release phones with 8 GB RAM. So that leaves nothing to be excited about the LG G6. As for the ROM, it comes with a stock 32GB. A micro-SD slot is also provided to add more space real estate upto 1 TB.
The RAM could have been higher. However, the latest Android version is a bonus point to pick up the LG G6.
