The LG G6 has just been released last month. While this phone may not be as globally popular as the Galaxy and iPhone, it is actually a pretty serious rival for all flagship phones, at least performance-wise. There have already been a number of LG G6 reviews online, and so far, there really isn't a lot of major things to complain about. In fact, LG G6's battery life is getting good feedback from people. Apparently, the phone's battery life is a big improvement over its predecessors from last year, the LG G5, and the LG V20.

LG G6 Battery Life Review

The LG G6 comes with a 3300 mAh battery. This is a big upgrade over the G5's and V20's 2800 mAh and 3000 mAh batteries respectively. Although more mAh-count doesn't necessarily mean longer battery life, the LG G6 is actually proving that the stereotype-belief is true, at least for itself. Apparently, the phone lasts longer than LG's flagship phones from last year. As per GSM Arena, the LG G6 lasted 22 and a half hours' worth of talk time while the LG G5 only lasted for 17 hours and 38 minutes. The LG V20 on the other hand only handled 19 hours and 48 minutes of voice calls. All these numbers are taken from a single charge.

In web-browsing battery life test, the LG G6 also tops its younger siblings. The 2017 flagship phone lasted eight hours and 31 minutes while the G5 and the V20 both lasted seven hours and 35 minutes. In video playback battery life test, the LG G6 lasted 10 hours and 27 minutes while the LG G5 was just a tad behind with a score of 10 hours and 21 minutes. The LG V20, on the other hand, is hours away with an 8-hour score.

LG G6 Quick Review Roundup

Overall, the LG G6 seems like a very valid Android option this 2017. For one, its design has improved, especially with its big screen-to-body ratio. Additionally, its display is also great with its high-end 1440 x 2880 pixel resolution. It may not have the latest Snapdragon processor, but as of its time of launch, the newest processor from Qualcomm hasn't been spread out to manufacturers yet. Additionally, LG G6's Snapdragon 821 chipset is still quite the fastest processor used by the smartphones in the current market. On top of all these, the LG G6 is also equipped with a competitive set of rear cameras. Note that the LG G6 comes with a dual 13 MP primary camera. So overall, the battery life isn't the only thing that improved in LG's new flagship phone.
