LG G6 Plus Dual Sim 128GB 4G, Astro Black H870

LG

While Samsung has pulled off a futuristic, slick look with shiny glass and organic lines everywhere, LG’s offering looks plainer and subdued in comparison. That said, the LG G6 also feels like a workhorse rather than a showpiece, and we were much less worried about it shattering in case of a fall.

The first thing you’ll notice about the LG G6 is that it’s quite chunky. It isn’t actually all that big compared to current-day phones with 5.5-inch screens, especially the iPhone 7 Plus, but it feels thick and bulky. That might be because of the dated styling, with flat sides and a slightly bulging rear. The front glass doesn’t have any hint of a curve, and the shiny beveled edges of the metal frame look very much like phones from many years ago which were inspired by the iPhone. Comparisons with the new Galaxy S8 siblings are inevitable, but despite the timing of their launches, these phones couldn’t be more different.
