ADV: LG G6 offers stunning FullVision display encased in compact chassis
The big screen that fits in your hand" - LG's latest premium offering stays true to its tagline. The manufacturers of this Android 7.0 (Nougat) phone worked at providing maximum features packed into a compact, easy-to-hold design, and this is exactly what you get with the LG G6. A premium smartphone, this model was launched in February 2017 and is loaded enough and priced well to give some big names a run for their money. Here's a detailed look into the major features of the phenomenon that is #LGG6.
Extra-tall display and sleek design
This is the most noticeable feature of the phone, which has 80% body to screen ratio. The 18:9 aspect ratio is where the G6 scores as most other smartphones have a 16:9 one. The 5.7" QHD Plus FullVision display is designed to fit comfortably in the user's hand, while providing a big-screen, taller panel experience - allowing you to #SeeMoreHoldLess. The resolution is 2880x1440 with 564ppi and it is also is the first phone to support Dolby Vision, offering an excellent mobile viewing experience.
Owing to the display, the phone features rounded corners that give it a sleek, stylish look along with the glass-and-aluminium built. Currently the #LGG6 is available in Black and Platinum colours.
With new enhancements and tricks, the cameras on #LGG6 are sure to impress. It has 13- megapixel dual wide angle (125°) cameras on the rear for more inclusive shots. The front-facing one is of 5-megapixels with a 2560x2160 resolution. The selfie light, auto shot, and beauty shot settings will please the selfie addicts as the phone offers an effortless selfie-taking experience with the auto-face detection feature.
But what serves as the icing on the cake for the G6's camera is the square camera, primarily aimed at die-hard Instagrammers. Designed to take the perfect square photos, this also offers several shot options - such as the match shot, grid shot, and guide shot. Moreover, the device also has 4K video recording support and up to 8x zoom.
Built-in Google Assistant
After the Pixel, LG's G6 is the only smartphone to feature Google Assistant as a native AI. The Galaxy S8 has its own assistant called Bixby as the default AI, which has its share of limitations when compared to Google Assistant. Users of the LG G6 can easily get real-time solutions, check emails, schedule everyday tasks, and be entertained on the go.
The voice recognition and search features of the AI are almost unmatched, and the ability to sync other Google services with it is a great advantage for the user. For those who own smart home devices, Assistant can also help in remotely controlling things like the thermostat and lights.
Built to endure
LG has put in efforts to ensure that the G6 is a sturdy device, which is evident in features like being dust and water resistant. In fact, it is designed to stay unaffected even when submerged under up to 1.5 metres of water for up to half an hour.
The non-removable battery has also been designed to endure high temperatures and keep the device temperature in check. For those who often worry about accidental phone drops, the LG G6 is the right device as it has passed 14 military-standard tests for endurance.
Apart from the above-mentioned ones, the G6 also has game battery saver, a fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, and rear-mounted fingerprint unlock as other features.
Can it beat the Galaxy S8, Google Pixel, and iPhone 7?
A feature-laden product from the house of LG, the G6 sure is equipped to take on the current rulers of the big-screen phone market. What works in its favour as compared to models like Samsung's Galaxy S8, Google Pixel, and the iPhone 7 are features like a bigger display and higher resolution, a sturdy built, and of course, the price.
The LG G6 is available at offline stores across the country, as well as on Amazon India, the official exclusive online partner. What's more is that with the LG G6 offer, this feature-rich phone can be purchased at an effective price of Rs. 41,990 after getting Rs. 10,000 off upon upgrading. While it is too early to give a verdict, this good-looking Android phone that packs in premium features at a better price undoubtedly allows you to see more holdless.
