Sorry. One more question. Besides the screen protector, was there a thin plastic you had to peel off the front and the back and the sides of the phone? Mine didn't. I see unboxing videos and one had all this they had to peel off. they are in the states though.



Thanks
No problem, mine had a screen protector on and some thin plastic on the sides nothing on the back though. I got mine from fido so maybe other providers are different. But yeah my fido phone had stuff on the sides but not back.
Zoomer: $36 for 2gb data, 400 Canada-wide minutes, and a free phone?
Fido: $15 3gb.
Too good.

Thanks for the info. Mine just had screen protector and stuff on the side that are similar to the screen protector. none of that plastic wrap the video had on the front or back.

Coming from the S7 Edge, the G6 is not that impressive. The screen needs to be at around 70% brightness to match the S7 at 50% which is ridiculous. The battery is worst than on the S7 and so is the speaker. Not sure whst to do now with this phone since I cannot return it...

There's really no contest against the S8+ but then again the price reflects the difference. I know it's a trade in promotion but just weeks after launch and this is already at $0.

I'm just wondering does LG just look at Samsung and says, "why bother we're not going to even come close, why spend the money improving our flagship." LOL

I agree with the display, Samsung is the King, battery life I love the G series it dies compete.

LG just as well give all their OLEDs to Google instead of wasting it on the V30.

I'll take it off your hands, I can offer a VERY reasonable $100 for it. I'll even throw in a Nexus 6P. :P

Anyone with a G6 coming from a G5? Opinions?

Also, i heard you can make your own gifs with the S8? Does the G6 have the same feature?

I did. It all depends on how much you can get the G6 for. I paid $500 and sold my G5 for $300. So for $200 it was worth the upgrade - IP68 and better cameras.

Probably through the Fido trade-in deal (where the final buyout price was $504+tax).
