TODAY'S BEST DEALS

With the LG G6, the modular design of the LG G5 is gone in favor of a more traditional phone, one that takes multiple elements from the top handsets around, blended together to make a more prosaic (but still intriguing) handset.

The G6 is a much more conservative design than its predecessor, taking the form of a sealed unit that drops the removable battery, replacing it with a larger-capacity power pack and waterproof shell.

Surprisingly, this phone isn't using the latest chipset from Qualcomm, so you won't be getting the full grunt of the Snapdragon 835. However, LG maintains this was a decision to benefit the consumer – using a chip it had expertise with rather than an unknown entity it couldn't test fully.

Instead, it's going with a Snapdragon 821 option, which LG told us was a better option given it had more experience working with the chip and could thus extract more performance rather than using an untested engine.

The screen is, really, the only place where innovation is still present on the G6, with the longer 18:9 display giving more screen real estate to play with, and introducing some clever little changes to the user interface to exploit the extra pixels.

Beyond that, there's not a lot that marks out the LG G6 from the rest of the competition – and that's a pretty good thing.  

Having used the LG G6 for a couple of weeks, it's easy to see that this is a 'grown-up' handset from the South Korean brand. It just feels nicer in the hand, more solid and refined, and we really haven't missed anything from the LG G5 at all.

Early prices were as high as $650/£649/AU$1000, but they're already starting to drop, and while it's still an expensive handset LG seems to have baked all the components together well, so at least you'll be getting a decent phone for the money.

It’s interesting that some reviews have called the LG G6 a 'return to form' - apart from perhaps the LG G2, the brand hasn’t had a stellar flagship device for years. Rather, it feels more like a ‘finally understanding what users actually want in a phone’.

Update: The G6 isn't the only hot LG phone brought to market recently. Arguably, its biggest phone of 2017 was the LG V30, which sits rather high up on our list of best Android phones. Unfortunately for the G6, the V30 is so good that it has kicked it right off the list. But who knows? Maybe the LG G7 will end up taking the V30's place.

Interestingly, some recent rumors surrounding the G7 claim that LG has rebooted its development several times in the search for the next big thing. One such rumor states that the next phone in the G series might not even be called the G7. With MWC 2018 coming up, we probably won't have long to wait until we see what's next.

We've added comparisons to the top phones the LG G6 is competing with, including the Samsung Galaxy S8, Sony Xperia XZ Premium and HTC U11, so you can get a clearer picture of how they differ and which is most worth your money.

Lastly, LG has brought more color options for the G6. You'll now be able to pick up the phone in Moroccan blue, violet, and rose in addition to its launch colors of silver, black, white, gold and a different shade of blue.

LG G6 price and release date

  • Out now
  • Costs around $550/£580/AU$1000 SIM free

OK - here's the curious thing about this phone. It's got a lower-spec in some areas, has prioritised things like design over an improved camera... and yet still costs far more money than we'd expect.

The LG G6 has an eye-watering £649 SIM free RRP in the UK, which is astronomical given we're used to seeing phones from this brand come in at almost half that cost after a few months of being on sale.

In fact, that might happen again, as many retailers have already dropped the price to a still-steep £580.

In terms of contract pricing, we're looking at around £38 per month minimum if you don't want to spend too much on the phone upfront, which again is rather high.

In the US, contract pricing is set at around $28 per month, which is in the region of Apple's iPhone 7 and the Google Pixel... both of which aren't considered cheap phones.

If you want to go for it SIM free in the North America, you're looking around $550 (down from a launch price of roughly $650), where it's AU$1,000 for those over in Australia.

For a limited time, you can trade in your old phone at Verizon to get the G6 for 50% off, which is a pretty tempting deal.

The LG G6 release date has already been and gone for most territories, with the UK one of the last to get its hands on the device - we're hoping that as it becomes more widespread, the cost of ownership continues to come down. 

Design 

  • An understated and sophisticated metal and glass build
  • Impressively small bezels
  • Water and dust resistance

The LG G6 is covered in a mix of glass and metal, with two sheets of Gorilla Glass (although weirdly it's Gorilla Glass 5 on the rear, but only the much older Gorilla Glass 3 on the front) framed with a rim of aluminum.

What's most impressive is how little bezel there is on this phone – we've now seen the same kind of design from Samsung on the Galaxy S8, but the narrow bezels have been shrunken top and bottom to create an impressive effect when you turn the phone on.

Anyone aware of the LG G5's design will be surprised by just how… normal this phone looks. Gone is the dull plastic back of the LG G3, the odd leather of the G4 or the come-apart design of last year’s phone – the LG G6 is smooth and classy all the way around.

That will disappoint those who like the way LG has taken things in a different direction in the past, but honestly, the G6 design is a smart move. It’s the most classically understated and sophisticated phone we’ve ever seen from LG, and it’s the perfect platform for letting the internals shine through.

And it's got the features that matter, like IP68 certification for water and dust resistance - a common flagship feature that was missing from the LG G5.

The rear of the phone is smooth, with no protruding camera bump – we’ll get onto the snapper in a moment, but LG told us it chose slimmer sensors rather than more advanced camera tech to make the design of the phone sleeker.

It's a gamble, but last year's camera was fine, and LG can probably just get away without another change.

There are two sensors on the rear of the phone, above the round fingerprint sensor, which also doubles as a power button.  

The LG G6 is currently available in platinum, black, white, Marine Blue, and gold. But recently, Moroccan blue, violet and rose were added to the roster.

The platinum is the most alluring of the colors, with a metallic sheen under the glass that catches the light nicely. However, the white option, with two cameras and round fingerprint sensor below, makes the G6 look a bit like a surprised ghost.

At the bottom of the phone is the single speaker next to the USB-C connector – and LG has kept the headphone jack at the top, declining to bow to the industry trend of dropping the connector as it keeps more 'traditional' (read: everyone) music fans happy.

Some LG phone lovers will be distraught, however, to find that the battery is now sealed into the handset – LG has finally given up on the removable power pack in order to put in a more powerful and slimmer juice unit.

It’s been increased to 3,300mAh within the slimmer 7.9mm frame – and it’s the right move. The need for removable power packs is almost dead thanks to the proliferation of portable battery chargers, but its V-series phones (such as the LG V20 launched last year) keeps the option for now.

MicroSD support still exists, with the up-to-2TB expansion option thrust into the SIM tray, and complementing the 32GB of onboard storage; however, it's really annoying that you can't adopt the storage from the memory card and use it as internal memory like other phones allow you to do.

The design of the LG G6 is certainly more refined - it does feel a bit light and over time the glass back feels more like plastic. That creates slightly sweaty digits, and there have been times when the fingerprint sensor has needed a wipe to function correctly.

However, that sensor is in the right place - rarely was there a misplaced finger when trying to unlock the handset, and the ring on the outside was easy to hit.

LG G6 review: A good phone if you can find it cheap, but there are better LGs to choose from

Update, 2018

The G6 was a formidable phone, but it's currently not worth buying unless you can find one on sale. You'd be better off investing in a LG V30, V30S ThinQ, or G7 ThinQ, all of which have upgraded cameras, larger screens with slimmer bezels, and faster processors.

Check out CNET's best smartphones for more information on competitive products.

The review of the LG G6 -- originally published on April 19, 2017, and otherwise is mostly unchanged -- follows.


In high school, being different only works if you're also cool. Otherwise, you get mocked or, possibly worse, completely ignored. LG can no doubt relate.

After the lackluster reception of its unique, modular-like G5, LG decided not to double-down with another quirky approach to mods. Instead, it reversed course, toed the party line and released the more traditional G6. Gone is that funky hot-swappable chin. In its place is a slim, water-resistant build whose screen takes up an enviable 80 percent of the phone face. For LG, this is the safer but smarter play since the G6 has to do battle with the https://www.cnet.com/products/google-pixel-phone/OnePlus 3T, the Google Pixelphones and the Samsung Galaxy S8.
So does it usurp its biggest South Korean rival, the S8? Not exactly. On paper, the G6 doesn't have as powerful a processor and as long-lasting a battery. LG fans will also be disappointed that said battery is no longer removable (then again, neither is the S8's). And while earlier LG was set to announce its big-screen, small-bezel phone, Samsung's S8 takes the same basic idea and adds more elegance with a unique curved-edge twist.

But Samsung's still dealing with some Galaxy Note 7 fiasco fallout, and the G6 is a great alternative if you're squeamish about Samsung. Plus, with a $600-$720 (depending on the carrier) price tag, the G6 is about $30-$100 cheaper than the S8. For the first time in a long time, an LG handset stands a fighting chance to be your next high-end Android phone. It may not be popular enough to be Prom King, but it's a no-compromise premium phone with enough mainstream appeal to be on the ballot.

Editors' note: This review was originally published on April 12, 2017 and has been updated and expanded with direct comparisons to the Samsung Galaxy S8.

Polished and splash-friendly


The G6 is LG's nicest-looking flagship yet, which I don't say often, especially given last year's out-there G5. But the polished G6 has a streamlined aesthetic and a smooth unibody design (think the LG V20 with fewer seams or the G5 with fewer bumps). It's a bit heavy in the hand, but that doesn't bother me much. Like with previous LG handsets, the fingerprint sensor is built into the home button on the back, which sits below the camera (and not next to it, like with the S8). Oh, and don't worry, there's still a headphone jack.
The sharp, 5.7-inch screen takes up roughly 80 percent of the front of the phone, leaving it with an impressively thin bezel all around. It's unique in that it has an 18:9 aspect ratio (with the exception of the S8, most phones are 16:9).

Enlarge Image

The phone feels expansive and "tall," especially when you're scrolling down your web browser or social media feed. Not all apps and games take full advantage of this ratio though, and when they can't, you'll see black bars on the sides of the display even at full screen, aka "pillarboxing." You can enable "app scaling" on some apps by going into Settings. The longer display works, and seeing that you get more screen for about the same build size, I'm all for it.

In addition to its beautifully glossy design and screen, the G6 is dust- and water-resistant like the S8s, the Apple iPhone 7s and several Sony Xperia phones. It's rated IP68, so you can dunk it in up to 4.9 feet of water (about 1.5 meters) for up to 30 minutes. For the everyday user though, it just means the G6 won't crap out after you accidentally drop it in the pool or spill coffee on it. (Get a deeper dive on IP ratings and what they mean for waterproof gadgets.) I dunked it in a fishbowl and a bucket of water and let it sit each time underwater for 30 minutes. I also placed it inside a shower with the water splashing on it for 30 minutes. In all three instances, the handset kept ticking fine afterward, and it even registered an incoming call during the full dunking.

Non-removable battery is a bummer

With that said, waterproofing and removable batteries don't tend to go together these days, so the fact that the G6 does not have a removable battery was kind of a given. Still, to longtime LG fans, this might come as a disappointment. After the LG G2 in 2013, the company has been one of the few holdouts to feature swappable batteries in its flagship phones, so people can switch a drained one for a charged one or replace an old battery with a fresh one.

Not having that advantage is a drag, but it's not a deal-breaker for everyone either. LG also hopes that the G6's increased battery capacity (from 2,800mAh in the G5 to 3,300mAh) and new wireless charging feature -- just for the US -- can offset the benefits of a swappable battery. During our lab tests for continuous video playback on Airplane mode, the handset lasted an average of 13 hours and 21 minutes, which is better than last year's 12.5 hours.

The Galaxy S8 doesn't have a removable battery either. Samsung's flagships ditched that years ago. Its 3,000mAh battery clocked an average of 16 hours of drainage time. Samsung also said the overall life expectancy of the S8's battery life will last longer as well, years down the road.

Go wide or square with the cameras

Like the V20 and the G5 before it, the G6 has two cameras on the back. But they aren't to take artsy "bokeh" portraits like you do with the iPhone 7 Plus. On the G6, you can switch between the standard 13-megapixel lens and the 120-degree wide-angle lens to capture more content in each frame. If you're really all about that wide-angle life, the 5-megapixel front-facing shooter has a wide-angle option as well.

One of my favorite things about the camera is a new interface that shows you five of your most recent photos, like a gallery stream. LG added a separate camera app called Square Camera too. Aimed at hardcore Instagram users, it offers a number of different tools to take neat square photos. (For more on how Square Camera works, watch the video below and check out our explainer.)

Watch this: Obsessed with Instagram? LG G6 has an app for you

The app can be confusing at first, and features like Match Shot were hard to figure out initially. But once you get the hang of it, the results look pretty cool. My favorite is Guide, which overlays a framing template so you can capture similarly-composed photos repeatedly.

Keep in mind that if you take wide-angle shots, angles will be distorted and elongated from the side, especially when it comes to selfies with the front-facing camera. I also found that the front-facing camera takes relatively muddy shots in low light. Compared to the Pixel XL, OnePlus 3T and Galaxy S8, the G6 is on par with its rivals. The Pixel XL takes superior low-light images though, and I like the rich contrast of the S8 by just a tad. But the G6 captures sharp and vibrant images regardless, and other than blurry selfies in the dark, you'll be satisfied with the camera setup.

For more information, check out our video on the G6's camera, the slideshow below and our gallery for outdoor photography with the G6.

Life's just fine with Snapdragon 821

The G6 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processing platform, which specs nerds will notice is the same chipset in last year's OnePlus 3T and Google Pixels. Compared to the 821 chipset, Qualcomm's latest 835 is measurably smaller, faster and quicker at recharging mobile batteries.

When I benchmarked the 835 in a reference device, it indeed outpaced phones with the 821 (including the G6) by a comfortable margin. And while the S8, which also has the 835 for certain markets, garnered slightly lower scores than the reference device (this makes sense, since reference devices are designed for peak performance), the S8 still consistently edged out the G6.

But take these results with a pinch of salt. Unless you want to be on the absolute edge of technology, the idea of being saddled with "last year's" processor shouldn't be a huge deal, and the advantages of the 835 aren't that dramatic on paper. In the real world, the usual differences between one superfast processor and another are hardly discernible. During my time with the G6, it was smooth and fast. Apps launched and quit promptly, the camera operated quickly and the display was responsive.

Square peg in a square hole

Tech fans and phone buffs often complain about the lack of smartphone innovation. But when companies experiment with something novel, their efforts often flop or fold. Meanwhile, incremental iterations of familiar handsets like the iPhone 7 and Galaxy S7 remain big hits.

LG took a chance with the G5 and when that became a dud, it switched gears and made the G6 like every other flagship you see now (and will probably keep seeing throughout 2017). That's not exactly a bad thing though. By going with a simple, sleek design, a water-resistant body and a feature-packed camera, LG is giving phone users what they want. Covering the basics may be boring, but it works when you do it right (and even better when you can do it for a cheaper price). In the case of the G6, while it doesn't have anything novel or buzzworthy, it's LG's most marketable and widely-appealing phone yet.

If you're considering:

  • LG G6 vs. Samsung Galaxy S8: I don't mind that the G6 has an "older" processor, but the S8 has a longer battery life, and other than that annoying fingerprint reader placement, the S8 looks better in general. If you need the best-of-the-best and have the money, get the S8. But the G6 is a solid alternative that can come up to $100 (or £80 and AU$133) cheaper.
  • LG G6 vs. Google Pixel XL: The Pixel XL has a better camera (especially when handling low light), while having the same 821 chipset. But it's more expensive, not waterproof, doesn't have expandable storage and and people have pointed out that it looks like an iPhone doppelganger. If you don't care about any of that and you'd rather capture better photos, get the XL. (Just also keep in mind that its sequel is due in a few months.)
  • LG G6 vs. OnePlus 3T: Starting at $439, £399 and about AU$652 converted, the 3T goes big on value while having powerful enough hardware to hang with the big leagues (case in point: both handsets have the 821). However, the 3T isn't water-resistant, the camera doesn't have nearly as many features as the G6, and it too came out last year. So if you can spring for the G6, go for it. But if saving a notable amount of dough is reason enough for you, the 3T won't let you down.

Description

The LG G6 marks a departure from the previous experimental designs the company was known for. Gone are modular phones and leather backs, and instead, the LG G6 is a stylish and durable phone with a trendy glass body and a metal frame. It features a high level of water and dust protection - a first for a globally available LG phone - and the body has been designed to withstand more than a few encounters with the floor. But what's more obvious is the fact that nearly all of the phone's front is occupied by a 5.7-inch display with a 18:9 aspect ratio, the goal being to create a big-screen phone that's usable with one hand. Other notable features include the dual camera setup at the back, with a standard 13MP shooter acompanied by a wide-angle camera using the same image sensor.

The LG G6 is an Androidsmartphone developed by LG Electronics as part of the LG G series. It was announced during Mobile World Congress on February 26, 2017, as the successor to the 2016 LG G5.

The G6 is distinguished by its 5.7-inch display, which features a taller, 2:1 aspect ratio (marketed as 18:9), than the 16:9 aspect ratio of most smartphones. A variant, called the LG G6+ was announced on June 19, 2017 with 128 GB storage and a Hi-Fi Quad DAC.[3]

Specifications[edit]

Hardware[edit]

The LG G6 utilizes a metal chassis with a glass backing, and is IP68-rated for water and dust-resistance. It is available in black, white, and silver-color finishes. The G6 features a 1440pFullVisionIPS LCD, with a diagonal size of 5.7 inches. LG stated that it intended for the G6 to be a large-screened phone that would still be compact and feasible for one-handed use; the display uses a 2:1 aspect ratio (marketed as "18:9") that is taller than the 16:9 displays used by the majority of smartphones. The G6 was also designed with slim bezels, and is slightly smaller in size than the G5.[4] To allow for reinforcement around the corners of the display, the display panel itself has rounded edges.[5][6] The display also supports HDR10 and Dolby Visionhigh-dynamic-range video.[4]

Unlike the LG G3, G4 and G5, the LG G6's battery is non-user-replaceable.[7]

The G6 utilizes the QualcommSnapdragon 821system-on-chip with 4 GB of RAM. It is offered in models with 32 GB and 64 GB of internal storage, expandable via SD card. The G6+, on the other hand, comes with 4 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage standard. The G6 includes a 3300 mAh battery; unlike the G5, it is not user-accessible. U.S. models support wireless charging, and all models support Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0.[8] Models in selected Asian markets included quad Digital-to-analog converters (DAC) to enhance sound output.[8] The G6 drops the modular accessory system of the G5, which had been panned by critics.[6][5][4] Similarly to the G5, the G6 features dual rear-facing cameras, with standard and wide-angle sensors. Unlike the G5, where the primary rear-facing camera has a resolution of 16 megapixels but the wide-angle rear-facing camera has a resolution of only 8 megapixels, both cameras have a resolution of 13 megapixels.[6][5]

Software[edit]

LG G6 ships with Android 7.0 "Nougat" and LG UX. Some of LG's in-house applications have enhanced landscape modes intended to complement the 2:1 display; the camera app features shooting modes designed for use with square, 1:1 aspect ratio photos, and can display a camera roll sidebar when taking traditional 4:3 photos.[6][5] The screen size also complements Android Nougat's native split-screen mode for running multiple apps at once.[4] LG announced that it would provide a promotional "G6 Game Collection" offer with US$200 worth of in-game content for six games on Google Play Store (Cookie Jam, Crossy Road, Genies & Gems, Spider-Man Unlimited, SimCity BuildIt and Temple Run 2), oriented towards those built for one-handed play and optimizations for the aspect ratio.[6][5]

In May 2018, LG began to deploy an update to Android Oreo.[9]

In September 2019, Android 9.0 "Pie" was released for the LG G6 although some variants of the computer are not receiving the update or the FOTA update system is not working properly for those computers.

Reception[edit]

CNET contrasted the G6 with the previous year's G5, as well as its main launch competitor, the Samsung Galaxy S8. The design of the G6 was complimented for being more elegant and expansive than the G5, albeit less elegant than the similar but curved design of the Galaxy S8. LG was panned for its shift back to a non-removable battery, but the battery itself was praised for having a larger capacity than that of the G5. It was acknowledged that while the G6 does not include the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 system-on-chip (making the Galaxy S8 perform better on benchmarks than the G6), there was no discernible difference in performance in real-world usage between them. The cameras were also praised for producing "sharp and vibrant images", with quality on par with other recent flagship phones. In conclusion, CNET felt that the G6 could appeal to users that had lost their trust in Samsung following the recall of the Galaxy Note 7, arguing that "while it doesn't have anything novel or buzzworthy, it's LG's most marketable and widely-appealing phone yet."[10]

Rated 1 out of 5 by cellphoneuser213from New LG G6+ has Defective Display, Defective USB-C I purchased the 6+ as a new phone very recently and am very disappointed at the quality control or lack thereof with this supposedly "flagship" unit. Here are the problems right out of the box: 1. the display is defective. There is very noticeable backlight bleed along the entire bottom edge of the screen. This is extremely distracting when watching any video content, making it impossible to enjoy whatever you're viewing. 2. the USB-C port is already loose. This is with the very first connection! I've owned many iphones and ipads and the lightning port was always rock solid and secure, even after many years of use. If the power and data port is already loose on day 1, the long term prospects are very poor. 3. battery performance is below average. Even with screen brightness set well below 50%, I'm only getting 2 to 3 hours of on screen time according to a popular battery app. 4. This phone is "stuck" on Android 8. There are no further updates available, not even to Android 9. Android 11 is already available for 2019 phones and this phone can't even get to 9. LG has publicly announced that it plans (or hopes) to return to profitability. How do they expect to do so when they can't even deliver a functional display or usb-c port on their top of the line phone???
