i have one of those clear generic thin TPU cases from eBay (seller in Toronto) for $4. even though it's "thin" by case standards, covers the keys, leaves the ports open and is tempered glass friendly, i won't use it. the phone is such a great piece of industrial design IMO, can't stand the idea of slathering a TPU case all over it.

right now, i'm going naked except for tempered glass and a form-fitting pouch; hoping something better comes along.

Placed my order Sunday night and it still shows that the order is processing. Is this normal or is the RFD effect kicking in

update on battery life: go figure, after the brutal previous night, only dropped 2% overnight from 11pm to 8:30am ...
Was it in your car that time as well? My initial thought was that maybe in the car it was hunting for signal more overnight, resulting in larger battery drain.

I can send pictures of my blue one but it's the same as the LG G6+ in some Korean YouTube videos.
One question for anyone who has the same 870DS model...does it show 4G instead of LTE?

yup, actually left it in the trunk, and then parked underground. last night it drained about 5%, with WiFi on.

Thanks, googling pics of blue one shows different blue in different markets I guess.
Is it blue on back, silver on side, and black on front ?

I currently don't have a device to take a picture of it now...but same exact one:

blue on the back, bluish tint on the silver and black on the front yes.

G6 arrived on Friday in great condition. original packaging, fast charger, usb cable, sim eject tool, microfibre cloth, earbuds, manual in Chinese, screen protector film already applied. box came in two layers of bubble wrap. manufactured in Korea, 04/2017. has two IMEI due to it being Dual Sim, and the sticker on the back says "HiFi 32bit DAC" aka Quad DAC. phone came with 50% charge.

heads up: seen some reviewers with a white (European?) model show that has a grey aluminum frame; but the Asian definitely has the champagne frame. i think it's pretty sexy, though it was unexpected.



LG is pretty bad, though not The Worst. they typically don't do incremental Android updates. so if a phone is released at 7.0 it's next big update will be 8.0. (btw: Android O is definitely on the horizon for the G6.) keep in mind one thing re: this particular model. Dual Sim are bottom of the chain when it comes to updates and development. last security update for the H870DS was from April, and there doesn't seem to be a lot of action for this version on XDA.



got here from HK in less than two days! these guys are serious shippers (but via DHL -- so your YMMV totally).


[removed]
I assume you bought the black one with the temped glass screen protector? So does it mean people in eglobalcentral open the box and apply the protector before shipment?

white.

if you check other reviews, G6 comes with a film screen protector applied by LG.

If you get the tempered one with it, it's in a seperate package. Really nice quality glass, I like the smoothness of it rather than the one that came installed.
Only thing about the phone so far is it gets a lot warmer than my 6s.
