Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 22 Expert Reviews

What we liked
  • Excellent glass/metal build, premium look and feel, aesthetic design
  • Water and dust protection, and a lot of attention to durability
  • Beautiful 9:18 display, is a welcome evolution to smartphone displays
  • Because of the negligible bezels, feels like the entire thing is one big screen
  • Putting the G6 up next to other 5.7-inch phones, LG's ability to squeeze that much screen real estate onto this small a handset is nothing short of impressive - that it can go head-to-head with the smaller-screened iPhone 7 Plus and make that sleek, sophisticated handset seem chunky and bloated by comparison is real accomplishment for the company
  • The user interface is nice and typical LG with heavy use of colors from the entire spectrum
  • Powered by the solid Snapdragon 821, the performance is top-drawer, and on par with the other Snapdragon 820/821 competition (although some other flagships this year will be launching with the even more powerful Snapdragon 835)
  • Very good rear camera with a dual camera setup - the photos are detailed and with pleasing rich colors - the coverage of the wide-angle cam makes pretty much any scene look dramatic - works well in both daylight and low light
  • 4K video is super sharp too with lots of fine detail, and video stabilization works well
  • The selfie camera is decent too, with decent details
  • Decent loudspeaker
  • Good audio quality via earphones
  • Good battery life - easily lasts a day (though its not as great as some of the other flagship competition)
What we didn't
  • Software and media still catching up to this new 18:9 world, so you won't find a lot of media content right now that can make full use of the elongated display (for web browsing and multi-tasking though, the extra screen real estate works just great)
  • While the G6 is a pretty great phone in isolation, and in terms of value-for-money, but in terms of pure performance/quality, it doesn't quite match up when compared to what will probably be considered it's top competition among flagships - the Galaxy S8 - which is more elegant, more refined in design, better built, offers better performance, a better camera, a better display, high-quality headphones, and better battery life (although of course it is also more expensive)
