Undoubtedly, as one of the stars of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017, LG G6 delivers many breakthrough compared to its predecessors. Not only update the side hardware and software, this smartphone also has the highest jump of the side of the design.
As the new flagship phone that LG is prepared to hit the markets this year, the G6 is already ensured has a lot of advantages compared to its predecessor. But there are 5 things that most astonishing of this smartphone.
1. The Design Is No Longer Modular
LG seems reluctant to continue with the concept of modular smartphone which owned the G5. This is proven by the design of the G6 which seems to be anti version of it’s predecessor.
LG G6 comes with a design-based metal wrapped glass on the back. Of course, not the ordinary glass which makes it easily cracked or scratched, but the Gorilla Glass 5!
In addition, the smartphone is carrying the unibody which can not be dismantled-pairs such as the G5. Even a 3,300 mAh battery it has left sitting in the body without can be removed.
2. Water and Dust Resistant
This is the first time LG brings smartphone that toughness able to answer the challenges of usage. How not, LG G6 body has been certified IP68 which makes it resistant to water and dust. Arguably this is the biggest leap of the smartphone flagship than its predecessor, which mostly carry the plastic material.
3. The Biggest One, But Also the Smallest
With the FullVision concept design on its screen development, LG G6 does have the largest diagonal measurement to the other G series, which is 5.7-inches. But with the 18:9 aspect ratio on the screen, making this smartphone seem more tall and slim compared to the size of its predecessor that the ratio is fairly traditional, 16:9. This design of course makes it more comfortable to grip, even in the use with one hand. In terms of size also looks smaller because of the width to the top instead of to the side.
4. The spec is Not the Best, But Stable Enough
When a lot of the flagship smartphone powered by Snapdragon chipset 835, LG actually take a decision which is arguably less present, namely the Snapdragon 821, such as that carried on Google Pixel. Even so, LG claims that the use of the chipset is to ensure the performance of the G6 remain stable in everyday use because they have customized all aspects of hardware and software to carry.
Moreover, in terms of memory, LG G6 only has 4 GB RAM and 32 GB RAM, while the flagship smartphone that will hit this year trying to lure the market with 6 GB RAM and a 64 GB ROM to the top. But LG has confirmed there will be a series with 64 ROM. But, for the RAM capacity remains the same.
5. The Camera Remains The Best
Since the G2 launched, LG seems to want to put the G series as a smartphone that is adequate for mobile photography. So the G5 uses a dual-camera with one to capture a wide viewing angle, on the G6 concept like this re-presented.
But, unlike the G5 which has a resolution of 16 MP, G6 precisely as do the down grade to 13 MP. Likewise with the ratio of the wideness of the angle of view that it is only 4:3 when compared to the G5 which has an aspect ratio of 16:9.
But for those who believe that the size of the pixel is not an absolute thing that makes a better performance for a camera, it seems the down grade it no need to fuss. The fact is the G6 camera remains a champion on its class, because it has put the software as a major player in the process of taking pictures.
In addition, on the G5 camera with a lens width of only 8 MP resolution, while the G6 has 13 MP with aperture both have the same aperture F/1.8. So a detailed image can be obtained with this smartphone because it is able to capture more light into the lens.
6. The Best Multimedia Feature
While the screen are getting bigger, LG seems to want users to G6 are satisfied with the use of multimedia content. To make movie lovers have its enjoyable, LG provided standard HDR10 and Dolby Vision to give the image even more brilliant on the screen when it used to watch content from Neflix or iFlix.
Unfortunately with 18: 9 aspect ratio on the screen, makes the G6 seem overwhelming to watch the video streaming. Because lot of video that aired on YouTube has the most aspect ratio of 16:9. So predictably, when the video is played back on the smartphone, it will be seen the black line that is blank on both sides.
And the most excellent is LG G6 adopts the technology of the Quad DAC on the V20 which makes the voice output so more qualified when used in earphones. So, for music fans will surely be satisfied with this device.
Well, it will possible for LG G6 to fight its competitors in the segment of the flagship this year?
