REVIEWED: LG G6 smartphone

A bezel-less beauty designed to be used in one hand, this travel-friendly flagship just about dominated the Mobile World Congress

Is this the kind of the Android phones?  A 5.7-inch Quad HD display that’s both water and dust resistant, has Dolby Vision for HDR-quality video, and Qualcomm QuickCharge 3.0. What more do you want? (Apart from Qualcomm QuickCharge 4.0, which Sony’s Xperia Premium XZ has, obviously)?
Inside is a 3,300mAh battery, which is par for the course on a phone this big (and will stop you running out of battery for pretty much a whole day).
Classic looks, but a five megapixel front camera for selfies and video calls isn’t that impressive. It runs Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset, too, which is kinda old hat. Is someone trying to save cash?
Another dual-lens camera to add to 2017’s vast collection, the G6 keeps it equal by specifying both as 13 megapixels each. Seems fair.
And that says it all … and it does. It really does. However, TravGear doesn’t travel with scales, so you’ll have to wait for the official launch to weigh it up.
