LG G6 Review

  • Added:  5 months ago
  • The LG G6 is more than just the leading contender to take on Samsung's Galaxy S8. The G6 represents a large step forward for LG, having discarded last year’s compromises and gimmicks for a return to the fundamentals; a renewed focus on quality; and a camera I’m dearly going to miss when I move on. At the same time, it's also a step back: to a world without removable batteries, a world without bleeding-edge processors. Is the LG G6 for you? Find out in MrMobile’s LG G6 Review!

The device received one software update during the review process. It was paired to a Huawei Watch 2 for the review duration, and tested on various networks in Barcelona Spain and T-Mobile US in Greater Boston, USA.

    I love lg as a phone company. Their lg Optimus was my first phone ever. But otherwise I've never own an lg. My brothers girlfriend had the lg g4 and had to replace it 2 separate times because they got stuck on bootloop. I know this could be just coincidental. But I've heard of many people having these problems with lg phone. Could you Mr.fisher truly say that lg phones have lost that problem?

Has the LG G6 the same problems? Thanks for helping :)

    Great review, Mr. Mobile! You got yourself a new subscriber hehe. I've been wanting to buy the LG G5 ever since I first saw it in the market, but thank God I didn't have the money back then. The G6 is definitely much better than its predecessor so I'm going for it this weekend (FOR REAL). Thanks to your review I'm completely convinced that this is the phone for me (I've seen a lot of reviews and this is the last). Well I could go for an iPhone 7 or a Samsung S8 or a Huawei P9, but I don't have much money for a huge investment, although some may say it'd be worth it. LG G6 is on sale in Riyadh. From 2599 riyals, now it's just 1999. Why on earth would I not buy it??

    I've heard that the front cam could get really grainy especially in low light, but I'm madly in love with the wide angle camera, I might actually consider taking a rear-shot selfie. I can finally revive my dead Instagram feed. For five years, I've been using an iPhone 4. I've always wondered why my selfies were so grainy. It was only last week when I learned that the front cam is only 1 mp or less. No wonder! The rear cam was also quite bad. Back in the day (I mean 5 years ago), I had the best shots! Now I have the worst. To save my feed from humiliation (Instagram is significant in our culture), I decided to stop making efforts to produce great shots. My 5 mp is perfect in a bright cloudy day, but is horrible in normal lighting. Zooming makes things worse. The nights shots are an abomination.

    My g6 has been awesome, except the camera lens. That isn't awesome. It is completely destroyed from scratches, and hasn't left a case since I got it. Others have had the same issue with the black model, it seems that it is a mistreated antiglare coating put on at production. Getting a replacement or switching to s8.

    You See Michael, LG is actually screwing up their own fate. I have seen LG failed in numerous occasions to leave their mark in the market. I have used LG g4 and I loved that phone. G4 had lot of potential and very few room for improvement but LG decided to change the game with G5 and failed. I appreciated the courage and only hoped for refinement and may be a simple and clean approach. In many ways that can be said for LG g6 but again they have failed to study the market and decided to launch different varients in different regions. This decision just did it for me. I am in UK but I equally like quad DAC and wireless features as people in other regions do. My point is, LG is again giving consumers reason to not to buy their phone. why do it to yourself LG, why?

    SERIOUS QUESTION. I hope you guys can give me your insights, I am contemplating on what phone to buy, LG G6 or SONY XPERIA XZS (and yes I know XZ Premium is better but I don't have the time to wait, and the camera is the same, about the 4k HDR thing, I really don't see myself using it tbh and I kinda don't like the mirror like design, finger print magnet imo, the SD385 might be good for other games and such but from what I see 820 is good enough for me and it's gonna more expensive) SO, can you please tell me if LG G6 IS BETTER THAN XPERIA XZS? BATTERY LIFE? PERFORMANCE? UI? and AUDIO because tbh these are the things that I'll be concern about in the future. Thanks so much

    Definitely getting the V20 over the G6 for the removable battery. Shame it's gone now, buying a phone without a removable battery is buying something that you will want to replace in a year or two. Doesn't matter how good battery life is out the box, it will degrade and you will want to buy a whole new phone.
    All these new android phones are basically iPhones now, and I don't like that at all.

    G6 has just pre-ordered in my country. Looking at the price and bonus/gimmick that LG offered, seems cannot match the Samsung S8's latest infinity design.

    I think LG's price should be second tier below S8 price.

    I love LG, but people in my country is still traumatic bootloop error in G4.
