New LG G6.
To flirt and seduce girls, you need to have a good smartphone.
Don’t go out flirting with a cheap phone, broken screen, etc…
The LG G6 is a very good smartphone with a big screen, 5.7 inches.
If LG knows how to make good smartphones, it is always difficult to be in the world top 5.
The Korean consumer electronics giant does not succeed in doing as well as its Samsung compatriot, who managed to secure the top step of the podium, ahead of Apple, Huawei and two other Chinese brands unknown in Europe (Oppo and Vivo).
And the case is likely to get tougher with the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S8, the new smartphone star of Samsung who will have the heavy task to make forget the recent setbacks of the Galaxy Note 7, removed from sale for battery defects.
LG G6 review: Screen.
This mobile therefore offers a 5.7-inch IPS display displaying 1440 x 2880 px.
In addition to occupying practically 79% of the front screen, this slab inaugurates a ratio unprecedented in the world of mobility, the 18: 9.
LG G6 review: Processor.
Behind this higher, wider screen than the competitors is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 platform with an Adreno 530 graphics chip, 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD (up to 256 GB).
LG G6 review: Cameras.
Two 13-megapixel photo cameras, one standard and the other wide-angle, are present on the back, while a third camera with 5 Mpx takes care of the self-portraits.
LG G6 review: Connectivity.
All the expected connectivity is present, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, NFC, Radio Tuner and USB Type-C.
All this beautiful world is supported by a irremovable battery of 3300 mAh, animated by Android 7.0 and protected from water and dust by an IP68 certification.
We can say that LG was leaving from a distance.
The G5 and its desire for modularity had forced the Korean manufacturer to make some concessions on the quality of construction of his flagship smartphone at a time when competition, especially Samsung, came out with devices beautifully finished and waterproof.
So LG had to make up with it… and that’s it.
The G6 is indeed more than what is expected of a high-end smartphone today.
Glass back (Gorilla Glass 5), metal perimeter cut by thin plastic strips to let through radio waves, and of course a front bezel occupied at almost 79% by the famous 18: 9 screen.
A classic design for the G6 that no longer tries to be clever.
Metal and glass for a very premium finishing. With a large emphasis made on the screen which is the great novelty of this device.
LG is part of the great trend in 2017 by pushing the boundaries of the screen and proposing a quasi borderless slab in 18: 9 format.
The manufacturer manages to hold a 5.7-inch screen in a device case equivalent to that of a 5.2-inch.
The screen of a phablet that can be used and hold with one hand. That is the G6’s great strength.
All the more so with its QuadHD Plus resolution (2.880×1.440 pixels) and Dolby Vision technology, it offers a very high quality image that will delight fans of videos on smartphones.
This rather convincing format in use is not free of defects since all applications and videos (in 16: 9) are not yet optimized for such a display. It will not be unusual to have black tripes that will limit the interest.
LG G6 review: Photo quality.
Another undeniable advantage of the LG G6, the dual camera.
It thus takes up the dual objective of the LG G5 with two sensors of 13 million pixels, one of which proposes a normal angle of 71° and the other a wide angle of 125°, very appreciable to take pictures with a very large viewing angle.
The result is amazing whether it is day or night.
This is undoubtedly the other strength of the LG G6.
Another point to note is the possibility of taking selfies with an angle of 100 degrees, in order to have all your friends in the picture.
On the technical level, the configuration offered here is part of the top of the range, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 quadcore processor, 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, a 3.300 mAh battery capacity…
Another advantage is IP68 which renders the device resistant to water and dust.
18: 9 format ideal for use with one hand.
A very nice IPS screen.
Many possibilities of personalization.
Photo performance in low light never seen on mobile until then.
The wide-angle still as successful and interesting.
An IPS screen on a high-end smartphone in 2017.
Need to tweak the screen settings for best rendering.
Scratch-resistant front panel.
The 18: 9 screen is not really suitable for all content.
Audio performance that could have been better.
No 64GB, black version, wireless charge or quad dac.
An autonomy rather random according to the activities.
The LG G6 was able to learn the lessons that were necessary after the failure that was the LG G5.
So we have the right to a high-end smartphone that focuses on simplicity while embarking in addition the advanced features that until now were only found on the V series.
For all that, it is not yet a fault for LG which tramples screen question and autonomy.
Even if the IPS screen is very good, we were hoping for an Amoled screen on a high-end smartphone in 2017 and LG still has work to do to equal Samsung high-end mobile phones…
Despite everything, the LG G6 is an undeniable success and this year again, LG should assert itself as one of the kings of mobile photography.
Those for whom photography is primordial and who are ready to make small technological sacrifices can therefore rush eyes closed on the LG smartphone.
