Lg G6 launched its new and latest flagship earlier than Samsung Galaxy S8 which was on March 2017. They might have slight differences but they each do have its unique characteristics that customers may love.
Here is the LG G6 best features which you may compare to Samsung Galaxy S8
It came back after the G5 mess and created the new G6 with its brush metallic silver and glossy black version look.It’s completely flat without any protrusion from fingerprint scanner button, camera and no jack hole. Holding it tells you it’s very durable and heavy. Its size is smaller than S8 which is 5.7” with an aspect ratio of 18 by 9 or 2 by 1 which is the first one called for its Full Vision Display compared to the usual 16 by 9 ratio. Its longer display or screen size is good for multitasking when you do multi window and serves as to read more information below the rich visuals above. It has a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 at the back and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 at the front. The reason for the Glass cover is for the wireless charging port and as i have noticed after a few use, it shows some scratches at the back so make sure to have a protective case which you will have for free in the box. The 3.5 mm jack is still intact for QUAD DAC Hi-fi audio which will only be available in some countries especially Asia.
The Quad HD+ resolution is fantastic 1440 x 2880 which is more brighter than the G5. The superior image quality is bright and clear without oversaturation. Even on direct sunlight it can still be bright and visible. It Has Dolby Vision and HDR 10 format which bring entertainment to life, displaying more colors than SDR and contrast to the darkest part of the image while the brightest part can be expanded more.
It is water resistant with an IP rating of 68 meaning it’s well protected to dust and resistant to water about 30 minutes around 1.5 meters submerged underwater similar to Samsung Galaxy S8. This is due to its back is sealed with adhesive and the charging port with rubber at the sides to prevent water from getting inside. Even though there’s a removable sd card tray at the side it’s remarkable that the water can’t get in.
The rear cameras are located in a unique location. It has both 13 MP which is slightly a little higher and can be able to switch both standard and the wide angle to capture more content. The front face camera with only 5 MP has wide angle option which is already decent enough which can be used for face detection.
It has Snapdragon 821 to support superior connectivity, graphics, photography, power and battery efficiency although a little lower than Samsung’s S8 but it’s still amazing. 4 GB of RAM and up to 64 GB internal storage which you can add more with the external sd card memory up to 256 GB. Lg G6 will use copper heat pipes to dissipate the heat and by the use of thermo gel it will really take away the heat. The battery uses the same as LG V20 to make sure that it won’t explode.
