LG G6 Features

Pros

IP68 Rating

With the LG G6, the brand went an extra mile by the designing the flagship device with IP68 rating, which makes it perfect and durable device. The G6 is water-resistant when placed inside a 3 feet deep water for 30 minutes. This actually means that even if you drop this device inside a pool or spill a glass of drink over it, it will still come out strong and intact.

Slimmer Bezels

This design was overhauled by the brand since the LG G2, which saw the introudction of rear mounted buttons. This time around, LG has gone back with slimmer bezels on the front of the LG G6, with 90% of its front panel being covered by display. Because of this design, the G6 looks very pleasing to the eye, having rounded corners on the display and more body-to-display ratio.

Pre-loaded Google Assistant

The LG G6 is the first non-Google smartphone to feature the much loved Google Assistant in its operating system. Maybe you do not know what Google Assistant is all about, it is an AI (Artificial Intelligent) personal assistant that can read your onscreen content to provide solutions., and it also works with voice command etc.

18:9 Quad HD Display

The LG G6 was the first ever smartphone to come with an extra wide aspect ratio for the display. Notably, before now, all smartphones normally come with the standard 16:9. What this means is that the display is slightly taller than other smartphones and it has an unusual resolution of 1440 x 2880 pixels across 5.7inches. This features results in a sharp pixel density of 565 ppi and a wonderful viewing experience.

Dual Camera

This feature was a an LG trademark on their flagships, and the LG G6 was not left behind on this one. It features a dual 13MP camera on its rear panel, which is far more unlike other dual camera you can find in the market. The second module was more of a wide angle lens, which is capable of taking in more scenery than the regular one, The camera can either be swapped or used together.

Cons

Snapdragon 821

After seeing this I was like “what the heck”. It does not make any meaning for a 2017 flagship device to be running on a feature that was a highlight of 2016. The LG G6 was equipped with the Snapdragon 821 processor, where most phones manufactured year are running on the latest and more powerful Snapdragon 835 processor.

Non-removable Battery

Till this moment, LG have being the only brand that have maintained a stand of manufacturing phones with removable batteries. But this time around, they deviated from the norm with the launch of the LG G6. While it is good news considering its water-resisting ability, it might be rejected by most LG users because they are not used to it yet.
