LG is known for challenging design standards with their new releases. Sometimes that doesn’t work out well. With the G6, they’re offering a large 5.7-inch screen in a slim package.

Does their new screen ratio make the phablet experience more friendly? Reviews are rolling out and we’ve gathered what the biggest names are saying to bring you this summary!

LG’s latest glass-and-metal design deviates from the norm. Its rounded corners and ultra-thin bezels are hard to miss. Reviewers were quick to point out how comfortable the phone is in the hand despite the larger screen. DigitalTrends said, “Many people struggle to believe the G6 has a 5.7-inch screen, because it feels so small in your hand. It’s easy to stretch your thumb across to the other side of the phone when holding it in one hand, and it remains usable at all times.”

The phone features the standard LG fingerprint sensor and power button combo on the rear cover. The cameras are flush with the back for added stability when sitting on a flat surface. It’s also IP68 rated for water and dust resistance.

Heading around front is where the obvious difference from current phones appear. Thin bezels are part of the way LG crammed a larger screen in the normal sized phone. But, the resolution is the real difference. Running at 1440-by-2880, or a 1:2 ratio, the screen uses a different aspect ratio than other phones on the market. Instead of being extra wide, the screen is extra tall.

This allows LG to do fun things with multitasking. For example, you can load two apps side by side in perfect square boxes. Reviewers found that multitasking on the LG G6 was easier than with any other phone they’d used before.

Reviewers love the new approach. DigitalTrends notes, “Size oddities aside, the G6’s display is stunning. It’s full of color, detail, and warmth, and a true pleasure to watch.” Pocket Lint says, “It's a wonderful sight to behold. Without much bezel it's just you and your favorite media.”

The G6 uses the same processor as many of 2016’s flagship phones—a 2.35Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 821. They pair it with 4GB of RAM. As the specs would suggest, reviewers had no issues with performance. PhoneArena said, “Using the phone, everything felt appropriately smooth, whether stretching an app to fill the G6's extra-tall screen, or running a pair of them side-by-side.”

The phone runs Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. Reviewers feel LG’s software adds useful features to the Android experience without creating bloat or complications. PC Advisor UK said, “It takes a bit of getting used to if you’re coming from Samsung’s TouchWiz or pure stock Android, but after a time it’s just as fun and practical to use as them.”

You’ll find 32GB of internal storage. While this is plenty of space for most users, you can add more space using a microSD card of up to 2TB if needed.

The G6 features 3 cameras: two 13MP rear cameras and a 5MP front-facing selfie shooter. The dual rear cameras allow you to switch between a standard-angle and wide-angle lens. Reviews for all three cameras are positive. Digital Trends says, “You get two different experiences when taking pictures, especially in low light, when the standard angle lens produces pictures with more detail and less noise. However, the G6 can take some fantastic nighttime or evening shots, adding drama and atmosphere in the right environment.”

One feature many reviewers loved was the Grid Shot mode. This allows you to take square pictures and arrange them to tell a story within the camera app.

Powering all this, you’ll find a sealed 3,300mAh battery. QuickCharge 3.0 support means you can get a 47% charge in 30 minutes. Reviewers had no trouble getting the G6 to last a full day; even with gaming, streaming or lots of camera use. Some reviews saw the phone lasting two days on a single charge.

Overall, reviewers had little to complain about with the G6. GSM Arena summed up opinions well, saying, “The LG G6 is the full package with just the right corners carefully filed away pixel by pixel. We hear 'value' and we think it will cost peanuts - well, no. You get what you pay for here, and you get a lot.”

Great build quality, top-notch performance

from Fone Arena
The LG G6 is a great smartphone and is one of the best available on the market at the moment. It is great to see LG go back to basics and concentrate on what the market actually needs instead of trying to impress the market with stuff they think it needs. The wide-angle camera, fully manual video mode, 18:9 aspect ratio display and compact size all are unique offerings and attribute to the great smartphone that it is... Full review

Phablet’s worst nightmare

from Digital Trends
Should you buy it? Yes. The G6 is not only the first major flagship smartphone out in 2017 that we really adore, but it’s also a return to what makes us love LG phones — subtle yet beautiful design, a brilliant standout feature, and a cracking camera. The software is good, too, with Google Assistant installed rather than a third-party or untested alternative, ensuring it works cohesively throughout the phone. Best of all, it’s compact and easy to use with one hand, but offers a screen larger than its direct competitors. We love it, and think you will to... Full review

Modern hardware layout and construction

from PhoneArena
The LG G6 is a phone that wears its ambition on its sleeve. It's not afraid to say, “to hell with the past; this is the way things are now.” It doesn't look like a G4 or a G5, nor does it feel like one. And while that kind of departure from the status quo can be enormously risky, the vast majority of our interactions with the G6 suggest that it's a move LG was wise to make... Full review

The first truly great flagship phone for 2017

from Pocket-lint
All in all the LG G6 is a great phone that's every bit the flagship. It'll give the forthcoming competition a run for their money over the course of 2017 and with Samsung's history dented due to the Note 7 debacle, the stage is set for quite the showdown against the imminent Galaxy S8...
