LG G6 review: Good phone, but not the best
Over the years LG has pushed the limits of smartphone innovation. The company does not always come to mind when we think of top smartphone players, but it has contributed a lot in terms of showing us the first curved phones, the first power button on the back panel and the first truly modular phone. Months after it pushed the envelope again with the LG V20, the company has released its latest flagship, the LG G6. But how does the LG G6 fare in the new world? Here is our review.
Specifications: 5.7-inch QHD display (2880×1440), 18:9 aspect ratio |Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor 4GB RAM + 64GB storage (microSD card slot) | 13-megapixel wide angle f/2.4 aperture lens with standard 13-megapixel sensor with f/1.8 aperture| 5-megapixel front camera | 3300 mAh battery | Android 7.0 Nougat with UX 6.0 | Full specifications of LG G6
Price: Rs 51,990
The LG G6 stands out for two things — one, its dual rear camera and two, its compact design. The LG G6 can easily fit into your hands and might find favour with those who don’t really want a phone as large as a tablet. The frame of the phone does remind you of the iPhone in bits and pieces, and I did not particularly like the glossy back on this device.
After the leather back of the LG G4, this does look like a serious climbdown. The power button with the integrated fingerprint scanner is bang in the middle of the rear panel, just under the dual cameras.
What is good?
Like with the Samsung Galaxy S8, LG too has been able to squeeze a large display into a thinner frame, by thinning out the bezel. So the LG G6 has a 5.7-inch display, but feels more like a 5-inch smartphone. This will make the phone popular among those who hate large phones and there are quite a few of those people out there.
Plus, the phone features Dolby Vision display technology, which offers rich colours and texture which really shine in this Quad HD display. This is one of the phones in which you wouldn’t mind watching a really long video.
