The LG G6 Pros & Cons: A Hands-On Review
The first flagship to debut from a big company this year is the LG G6 and the device does not disappoint. Following the lackluster market performance of the LG G5 last year, the new device is definitely making up for it. But while it does sport spectacular features and the latest specs, there are still issues that leave room for improvement.
One great thing about the handheld is that it has a beautiful and well-thought design. As C|Net reported, about 80 percent of the phone's face is the 5.7 inch screen itself. The display curves gently at the edges, which allows a more comfortable and more premium feel. It is also super sharp, since it is packed with 565 pixels per inch.
BGR even added that the G6's FullVision display is a sight to behold on its own. The screen is bright, big and the colors leap out of the phone. The contrast was also noted to be outstanding in the unit.
Another great feature is waterproofing. At this point, this has become somewhat of a standard with flagships, so it is only right that the LG G6 is fitted with it as well. The rating is IP68, which means that it will still work after being dunked into 3 feet of water for 30 minutes.
The cameras of the device also have a few unique tricks up its sleeve. This includes being able to choose between the standard 13 megapixel rear camera, or using its 120-degree wide-angle lens to capture more content within the same frame. The 5 megapixel front camera also has a wide-angle option.
But the LG G6 definitely has room for improvement, including its non-removable battery and relatively old processor. The unit is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, which was already fitted into last year's flagships. In this way, the new unit might seem a little outdated.
The LG G6 will be available for Verizon subscribers by March 30. Meanwhile, the rest of the major US carriers will start releasing the smartphone a week later on April 7. At this point, the units pre-sales are already larger than critics had initially expected.
