The LG G6 was a formidable phone, but it’s currently not worth buying unless you can find one on sale. You’d be better off investing in a LG V30, V30S ThinQ, or G7 ThinQ, all of which have upgraded cameras, larger screens with slimmer bezels, and faster processors.The review of the LG G6 — originally published on April 19, 2017, and otherwise is mostly unchanged
The LG G6 is LG’s nicest-looking flagship yet, which I don’t say often, especially given last year’s out-there LG G5. But the polished LG G6 has a streamlined aesthetic and a smooth unibody design (think the LG V20 with fewer seams or the LG G5 with fewer bumps). 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, which sits below the camera (and not next to it, like with the S8). Oh, and don’t worry, there’s still a headphone jack.
The sharp, 5.7-inch screen takes up roughly 80 percent of the front of the phone, leaving it with an impressively thin bezel all around. It’s unique in that it has an 18:9 aspect ratio (with the exception of the S8, most phones are 16:9).
