The LG G6 is a new flagship phone from LG. It has a new design, which is quite noticeable from the choice of material. Gone is the metal jacket cover, now you can see glass covering the entire back of the phone. Although it boosts the device’s elegance, glass is known as a fingerprint magnet. You need to clean it regularly because it gets dirty easily. To avoid the hassle, putting the phone in a case sounds like a good idea. We’ll reveal the key features, so let’s get right into it.
Actually, metal is not the only material used to build this device. It also combines metal which adds to its strength and elegance. Meanwhile, Gorilla Glass does make the LG G6 look stunning, but it also doubles as a protective layer. Anything coated in this glass will be resistant to scratches although it is not really immune to fingerprints. LG also claims that the screen isn’t easy to break due to its angled internal design. It minimizes the impact of a fall as the force isn’t directly exerted on the screen. Not just scratch-resistant, the new flagship is IP68 certified. It means that the phone can survive immersion in water at a depth of 1.5m for a half hour. The basic ports are also included, like a USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm headset jack.
LG leads the pack in quality displays. This is one of the most interesting aspects of the LG G6. Just take a look at the how the screen is shaped. It is a bit unusual compared to other flagships released recently. Despite the large size, the 5.7-inch Quad HD display is comfortable enough to hold in one hand. The HDR 10 addition only makes things better. This is a new technology which improves color reproduction of a display. Blacks are becoming darker, while bright parts are properly highlighted. This will, in turn make the display look more lively and real. It covers 93.2% of the sRGB gamut, while not the highest, is still respectable.
It uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset for performance. It’s not necessarily the most powerful, but should work just fine for the flagship. It is very capable of multitasking and running heavy apps. There’s no lag, let alone crashes, so you won’t be disappointed. Another proof of the snappy performance is the quick booting. It takes like 20 seconds to boot up the device. It puts the device ahead of other competitors, like the Pixel XL. There is 4GB of RAM, spacious enough to handle all your favorite apps. As for storage, there are two options, 32/64GB. They are rolled out to different markets.
We’re a big fan of the camera because the results are amazing. The wide angle lens camera is the reason behind the incredible performance. Instead of 1, it uses two 13MP sensors for taking high quality pictures. The difference it makes is uncanny. Photos look ways sharper and show lots of detail. One of the sensors is specifically designed for landscapes or big scenes because it is wide angle. The other one can be used to take regular photos.
