      Too early to tell I presume.

      • +1 vote

        Pretty sure I read somewhere that LG are using a glue on the motherboard of the G6 as opposed to the solder used on the earlier bootloop-prone phones, since bootlooping was caused from the solder failing due to temperature fluctuations.

        I have a V20 which supposedly still uses solder so we'll see if I suffer bootloops in a years time.

        I bought LG as more-or-less a stop gap until the Samsung Note 8 arrives, my old phone died prematurely. But now I've grown to love this phone and don't think I'll bother with Samsung anytime soon. Sure the Note 8 will be in a league of its own but LG has been a pleasant surprise in price/performance/features. Perhaps the battery will be a weak link over time but I still get 1 day comfortably so far (new phone, new battery).

        I do like the G6 but noticed it lacks the second screen of the V series which I've quickly become hooked on. Next phone will probably be the V30 for me.

    …and a powerful 3300mAh battery.

    Funny stuff.

    1440x2880 isn't 4K. Not sure why LG are putting 'True 4K' in the marketing.

    I just bought the OnePlus 3T for the same price. I personally feel it's better bang for buck. Unless you want the oversized screen of the LG, I'd prefer 5.5" Super AMOLED over the screen on the IPS on this. I also feel anything over 1080p on a phone is overkill and the only thing you get from it is greater load on battery and CPU/GPU.

      What I don't get is why display resolutions increase yearly but battery capacities stay the same.

      • +4 votes

        Because people (or at least companies feel that people) don't want thicker phones to accommodate bigger batteries.

      • +9 votes

        If they make a thicker phone, the press reacts badly and tells everyone it's ugly, as they did for the iPhone smart battery case.

        Don't get me started on glass back panels, which people immediately cover with a thick case…

        • +3 votes

          I'm not too sure about the bad reaction thing. Samsung made their phone thicker moving from s6 to s7 for a larger battery and they were praised for it. More manufacturers should follow suit, but it doesn't seem to be the case. For a long time slimming down the phone was like a contest between manufacturers, but phones have become thin enough dammnit.

          As for the glass panel, since lg and samsung want wireless charging it's either that or a plastic cover. My vote is on a removable plastic cover since I keep my phone for 2+ years, but unfortunately I don't think that's ever happening

        Perhaps I'm a minority, but I want a smaller phone with decent specs. I don't want a 5.5" fondleslab. 4 to 4.5" screen is the best fit for my pocket. If I'm doing serious web/app use I'll use a tablet or laptop.

        The iPhone 5, Sony Z3 and Z5 Compacts were the ideal size for me, with smallish screens and powerful innards.

        • +3 votes

          A good thing about the G6 is its physically small given its screen size. 149x72mm is smaller than many phones with a 5" screen! The OnePlus 3T has a smaller screen but bigger body.

          Now if only they'd bring out a phone with a 5" 1080p screen and a 135x70 body.

        •  

          this is exactly why i went from a z3 compact to iphone se. wanted to stick with android, but theres no other phone on the market with good specs in a small size.

      •  

        Samsung tried to squeeze more out of their batteries with the S7 Note :)
        Not really sure my eyes can detect super high res on such a small screen

    • -2 votes

      no band 28, which may be important for some

    •  

      Where did you but the 3T from?

    • +1 vote

      The only problem with the 3T is that the camera isn't great. It's not terrible, but the G6 is a definite step up.

    •  

      No FM radio but LG has it included in their phones.

    •  

      Oneplus 5 is coming out next week

  •  

    It was a huge issue for the LG G4.
    I believe they have since fixed the issue.

    • +2 votes

      Do you have any source to confirm this?

    • +3 votes

      Hope they've fixed it as you noted. I've also experienced the bootloop issue with G3 as well as with G4. So personally, I've distanced myself from LG phones for the moment. I managed to somehow get the G3 working buy swapping the battery. the latest G6 a has non-removable battery, which would not enable easy workarounds as with removable/ replaceable batteries. Only option would be to rely on an Manufacturer Warranty or a phone technician.

    Changed item description as it's not quite 4K display.

    Reviews of this handset largely refer to it as a spiritual successor to the Google Nexus 5, which was also made by LG and is one of the best android phones ever made. That is pretty high praise…

    • +2 votes

      Interesting. Love my Nexus 5 so this one might be my next.

      • +1 vote

        My son has a Nex5 and said to me yesterday, 'If I need a new phone another one of these would do me fine'. No more official updates in the works but plenty of custom ROMs available

    •  

      Hmm, might have to look into these more!

    Warning: DWI may not ship the item, they will say in stock and ready to ship in a few days but after couple of weeks you will get an email saying the item is not stock and you can swap it for something else or we issue a refund. It will then take another week or so to get your refund. Total waste of time and energy.

    • +8 votes

      to be fair i've bought 3 phones from them over time and never had issues with shipping or the products.

    • +2 votes

      I've purchased two phones, six expensive lenses and two camera bodies from DWI and have never had an issue. Though that was a couple of years ago so things may be different now.

      Maybe they just had a real supply issue with your order (?).

      •  

        I have purchased from them in the past too, however my recent experience wasn't the same. Other people have been reporting similar issue on Whirlpool.

    •  

      Bought an G6 from them last 15% off ebay site wide on Wednesday and recieved it on Monday following.

    •  

      Just purchased a V20 from the a week ago - came in 4 days by DHL to my doorstep. No problems with them.

    wont buy LG phone anymore, the price goes down like a train

    • +7 votes

      Thought that was a good reason to buy.

      • +5 votes

        When the phone is cheap enough yes. Not when you buy it for $900 and the next month it becomes $500 lol…
        This phone will be in the $400-$500 range in no time, that'll be the time to buy as that's when the price drop slows down, for LG phones anyway.

        • +2 votes

          Good things come to those who wait!

        •  

          Yep, i agree. Nabbed my G4 when it was under $400 with the added bonus being that all the bootloop issues had been resolved in later build dates. I'll give the g6 at least another 6 months before i take the plunge.

        • +1 vote

          Umm. It's $532 dollars in this deal. You're worried that you might buy it and in no time it will have lost $33 in value?

        • -1 vote

          @macrocephalic:
          Yeah, for a phone dropping fast in value I think $33 is quite a bit of money to lose (and likely will be more than $33)…

        •  

          @clse945111: The G5 was still in the $450+ dollar range last time I looked. There is a floor and this is getting close to it. More importantly though, why do you care if your phone's retail price drops? Does it affect your phone at all?

        • +1 vote

          @macrocephalic:
          Why does it not matter?
          If I'm not in urgent need of an upgrade I'd rather pay $400 next month than $500 this month. It hasn't hit the floor yet, so the price will likely to drop further in the near future.

        •  

          @clse945111: Sure, waiting is a factor, but there's no reason to be concerned if the phone you bought decreases in retail pricing (which is what I thought you were talking about).

    •  

      Resale value is not even something I would consider on the phone. They have such short lives; you buy them, you use them, in a couple of years they break and you get rid of them and buy a new one.

    No Wireless FAST charging :(

    Great price great phone

  •  

    Damn price has decreased rapidly. Phone was DOA with 821 chip in 2017,pity considering 835 is an incremental upgrade with little real life difference. Rumour has it that LG are making atleast one of the pixel 2 phones, so could be based on G6.

    • +1 vote

      Massive decrease in price considering it's still selling for $1199.00 at Harvey Norman.

      'DOA with 821 chip' - did you buy the unit from this seller? How was warranty handled?

      • +4 votes

        I think the comment meant that this phone was already outdated when it was released in 2017 with a 2016 processor.

        • +1 vote

          ah thanks. Extract from Google…

          When we discussed with the Korean team that worked on the LG G6, they pointed out that Snapdragon 821 has been around long enough that software is extremely stable and very optimized. Using Snapdragon 835 would require some “ramp up” time, and in the end, LG deemed that 821 was the platform that resonated most with the LG G6 theme of reliability and value because engineers (from both Qualcomm and LG )had time to optimize all aspects of the phone.

          While Snapdragon 835 would provide a performance boost thanks to a more powerful hardware, Snapdragon 821 is now used close to its full potential. Like any other processor, it will take some time for engineers to fully exploit the new chip. If you look at game consoles, code optimizations keep coming, even years after their original release.

          Even though there are Snapdragon 821 optimizations, we still expect a Snapdragon 835 handset to outperform a Snapdragon 821 in benchmarks – by how much remains to be seen, and we will soon have an answer… For LG G6 lovers who wanted “the best” of everything, there’s a dilemma because we expect Snapdragon 835 to do particularly well in benchmarks.
          For those who don’t use heavy apps or play 3D games, the difference won’t be as noticeable. Maybe there is a lost opportunity to connect to more advanced LTE networks that Snapdragon 835 has access to, thanks to its more advanced modem. However, those networks are not yet deployed for the majority of potential customers.

        •  

          @hpkv:
          I think battery consumption might be the biggest difference. The G6 has a bigger 3300mah battery but has shorter battery life than the U11 that has a 3000mah battery.

        •  

          What optimisations are they talking about? Both processors are the same ARM architecture. Sounds like a load of marketing shite to me.

    • +1 vote

      I don't see the 821 as an issue unless you're a VERY heavy user. Unfortunately it's a "mine is bigger than yours" thing which counts for a lot at the high end…

  •  

    Bugger, bought the V20 a week ago. Should have probably held out

    •  

      bought it for 630 from vaya ebay a few days ago, kill me :(

    •  

      That is still a great phone though.

    •  

      In the same boat but i prefer the V20 over this. Watching movies in the G6 will be annoying as videos are not optimized for the tall aspect ratio yet. Call me old school, i also value IR blaster in phones.

      •  

        Yeah I just got my V20 and isn't regret choosing it over the G6.

        •  

          Still waiting on mine, did you buy it from DWI? If your model is H990DS model, does it some with the screen protector and B&O earbuds? Is the screen protector as good(in terms on easy to clean and glides smoothly when touched) as the glass one(say from Nillkin or Spigen). I'm contemplating whether or not to buy the screen protector as i would case it up anyways so don't need glass screen protection.

        • +1 vote

          @Volution: mine was from eGlobal. Shipped very quickly.

          Haven't even looked at the earbuds sorry. And it has a screen protector on already which I've left on cause it's decent, even though I normally hate screen protectors.

        •  

          @Volution: just checked mate and mine came with some B&O earphones in the box. They trigger the quad DAC which is interesting.

        •  

          @theguyrules: Good stuff. I'm looking forward in using the dac with my alessandro ms-pro cans.

      • +1 vote

        Same here with the V20 - much better than my ageing G3. My pref for a phone since having the G3 was FM Radio, removable battery, 4K screen, good camera. It fits my bill. On the plus, I love the DAC!

  • +1 vote

    This phone was $9xx in March, $7xx in April, $6xx in May and now in June it's $530…

  •  

    Now I feel less shitty for not buying the V20. Has anyone read how the auto mode camera fare against the V20? V20's auto mode performs like a mid range phone.

    •  

      With the V20, you can just use manual mode and leave everything on auto. Works fine.

      •  

        I was referring to image quality taken with auto mode not the auto mode interface.

        Have looked up some comparison video on YTube and G6's camera still seems to be half a step behind Pixel, S8 & iPhone 7.

        •  

          then if you would shell out $1k for a slightly better camera, then those phone would make you happy!.
          For us, a V20 at <$500 is best value for money!

        • +1 vote

          @revivor: Wake up mate, I didn't say this deal is bad or I would shell out double the money. If that's the case I would have bought an S8 & call it a day.

          <$500 phones don't automatically mean mediocre camera. Eg. Great camera on Nexus 5x, Nexus 6P, LG G4. LG has made some questionable choices in sensor chioce & post image processing in the last few years. Hopefully that would change come the V30 or G7.

        • +1 vote

          So was I?

          Auto mode quality is known to be awful. I'm letting you know you can use it in manual mode which does less image post processing, and you can still have everything (white balance, focus, ISO, shutter speed) on auto.

          I haven't touched actual auto mode on my V20 and the camera has been great so far.
