LG G6 is LG’s latest flagship Smartphone and the successor to the modular LG G5.The LG G6 has dropped the modular design for metal and glass design with non-removable battery, but keeps the excellent dual camera set up of the LG G5 plus a host of other specs upgrade . Like the Galaxy S8 and galaxy S8 plus ,the LG G6 got a nice display with thin bezel, water resistance, dual cameras, and a premium metal and glass design. It is unarguably the best of all LG Phones till date .
LG G6 Designs & Display
In terms of designs , the LG G6 is is no doubt well crafted, it is made of a well polished aluminium rim with Gorilla Glass front and rear panels. Like the Samsung galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus , the LG G6 is IP68 waterproof , so you could work with the LG G6 under water .The Fingerprint is located to the rear , but not in same manner as the Galaxy S8 .
The LG G6 comes with a 5.7-inch Amoled display – an acceptable increase increase from the 5.2-inch display of the LG G5 .The new LG G6 offers an 18:9 aspect ratio , meaning the new device has a taller display in a more compact body.It is worth mentioning that the rear of the LG G6 layered with Corning Gorilla Glass 5, while the front is covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

LG G6 Processor , RAM & Storage
LG has decided to chip in the same chipset that featured in Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL and OnePlus 3T and that is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 quad-core processor with Adreno 530 GPU in flagship LG G6. This is in no way a match for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip of the Galaxy S8, but then , there is little doubt that this would be a very snappy device capable of running even the most complex app without any hitch. The LG G6 didn’t disappoint in the Memory and RAM sizes as well, it comes with 4gb of RAM and a choice of 32GB or 64GB of storage, both of which have with microSD and are all in line with the Galaxy S8. LG G6 comes with dual SIM slots which seems to be the trend these days as the latest Samsung Galaxy S8 also offer similar dual SIM variant.
LG G6 Camera
Although LG have been building great devices, there is little to be praised about their cameras especially when put on par with that of Samsung, iPhone and Sony, even Blackberry. However, the LG G5 camera was fine, and LG can probably just get away without another change. The LG G6 retained the camera setup of the G6 , but with some added features such as autofocus, laser autofocus, LED flash, HDR, and Face Detection .The device comes with dual camera sensors with dual LED flash just above the rear fingerprint sensor .With that set up , you have one 13MP Camera with wide-angle and another 13MP camera with Optical Image Stabilization.
LG G6 Software
It would have been a trade-off if LG had not embedded the latest version of Android OS in its flagship smartphone, so as you’d probably have expected, the LG G6 run on Nougat alongside LG’s UX 6.0. The latest LG’s UX 6.0 is well optimised for advanced multi-tasking, enhanced camera experience and a better way to enjoy games, films and applications with side-by-side app layouts creating square applications on screen.For now, we aren’t sure the software is upgrade able to future android OS versions but let’s just hope it will.
LG G6 supports Google Assistant, USB Type C port (with USB 3.1), NFC, Bluetooth 4.2, and dual-band Wi-Fi. The LG G6 is packed with a 3300 mAh non-removable battery with fast & wireless charging which LG claims can jack up your phone’s battery to 50% in 30 minutes, which is in no way different from the charging rate of 2016 galaxy S7 and S7 edge .
