Official LG G6 thread.

Lots of rumours about the G6 floating around now.



Likely to be announced in Feb at MWC.

It's a great phone. Been using it as a stop gap until S8 or iPhone8 comes out.

i dont get it either. The phone itself is great at everything it does. Snappy, great photos (one of the best of last yr), great sound quality.

It has the exact same camera as the G4 though - which was arguably one of, if not the best cameras of 2014. Other than the 2nd lens for wide angle, it wasn't too much of an upgrade from the G4 in my view - boot loop issues aside obviously.

Didn't they do the same thing with the G3? Iterative update on the G2, the same way Apple does with the S series?

Looks like the G6 is going to be debuting at the end of Feb: https://www.engadget.com/2017/01/19/lg- ... -february/

Design.

The G4 was their best not counting the V series.

No, G3 was the best.
I still wonder why they made a curved screen.

It was great too but the PALE display ruined it.

Love the G series but fell with the G5, not loving the G5 either. Looking more forward to the V30, hopefully LG makes it available to all carriers.

Three at the moment.

Upgraded 9 including what I'm using now last year.

I didn't touch the G5, even though it was a Hot Deal I got the G4 again. It's rare for me to buy it again once I sell it.

I hope they improve their UI. LG usually has great hardware let down by software. I know they are capable of good UI, as represented by LG WebOS on their TV's. Looking forward to the G6 announcement.
