Wondering if you should buy LG G6?
Wondering whether the LG G6 is worth the money? Here are the handset’s biggest pros and cons.
First of all, the 2017 release breaks up with the unpopular modular design found in LG G5 and returns to premium looking body being a hybrid of glass and metal. This beautifully-crafted slim body hides a massive almost bezel-less 5.5-inch display with 18:9 ratio. The unique tall screen is also extremely sharp thanks to Quad HD+ and delivers great HDR quality viewing experience. Furthermore, as it supports the recent Dolby Vision standard for HDR the watched content will provide its users with a better contrast and more colors than typical smartphone displays.
Except for being an eye-catching the phone’s design is also water-resistant. Tagged with IP68 military certification, the LG G6 is able to survive being buried in 1 meter deep in water for an entire one hour. In addition, thanks to rounded corners designed to minimize impact, the device will also withstand accidental drops. Another thing you may like about the LG G6 is its dual-camera. Both rear cameras offers 13MP sensors, one of which shoots 125-degree wide angle photos allowing you to take in more of the scene.
However, no matter how phenomenal the LG G6 looks at first sight, it’s not deprived of few drawbacks. The biggest shortage of the device is surely its one-year old processor. Quite disappointingly, instead of the freshest Snapdragon 835 chip, the handsets debuts driven by the Snapdragon 821 processor. This short-sighted move won’t allow the phone to achieve best performance, especially when taking into account that working on Snapdragon 835 the Galaxy S8 will debut on March 29.
Except for a better computing parameters the Samsung’s flagship will offer an equally attractive design with 18:9 ratio, innovative desktop dock and a new virtual assistant called Bixby. One thing on the plus side for the LG G6 is its pricing as the Galaxy S8 is rumored to cost something round $1,000.
