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 - should easily last 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)
