LG G6


LG G6

LG G6 smartphone was launched in February 2017. The phone comes with a 5.70-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1440 pixels by 2880 pixels at a PPI of 564 pixels per inch. LG G6 price in India starts from Rs. 38,788.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 821It comes with 4GB of RAM.  Phone packs 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 2000GB via a microSD card. LG G6 packs a 13-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 5-megapixel front shooter for selfies.  But the polished G6 has a streamlined aesthetic and a smooth unibody design . 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. Oh, and don’t worry, there’s still a headphone jack.  LG has crafted a phone that looks attractive. LG G6 is an attractive phone, once you get over the wide-aspect screen. But I worry this novelty will wear thin.

Design

LG G6 design formula is rather simple and straightforward, with a sturdy metal frame paired with a couple different kinds of Gorilla Glass.  Glass finishes are fingerprint and dust magnets, but this is something we’ve now come to expect from most glass phones out there. Fingerprints on the White model are very difficult to discern, while fingerprints on the Platinum color option are a tad more noticeable.

On the Black version, fingerprints are most noticeable.  LG G6 is different from previous LG flagships, and that’s a good thing. Rather than attempting to reinvent the wheel, LG has gone back to basics. After last year, LG needed safe to appeal to the masses, and the G6 does just this.

LG 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.

OVERVIEW

On the photography a 13-megapixel dual rear camera setup and 5-megapixel front facing camera support. LG G6 device also comes with a 3,300 mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging support and USB Type-C for charging and data transfer. G6 runs on Android 7.0 Nougat based on LG UX 6.0 OS. Other connectivity options include 4G LTE support, WiFi, Bluetooth and USB support. LG G6  covered in a mix of glass  metal, with two sheets of Gorilla Glass. LG has managed to create a large mobile screen, without increasing the size of its flagship smartphone. With minimal bezels and a new aspect ratio of 18:9, the G6 gives you the big phone experience, without the inconvenience of a supersized device.

LG’s minimal design aside, the company squeezed a whole lot of screen into a modestly sized body. It’s remarkably comfortable to hold and use for long periods of time. Between the not-quite-finished model I received at Mobile World Congress and the consumer-ready, AT&T version LG later provided.

It packs full manual control, a first for LG, which also helps keep low-light videos looking good.
