The LG G6 is like no other smartphone LG has made, and it's certainly a step in the right direction.


Hopefully, it heralds a new era for LG flagship smartphones, complete with premium materials and interesting design choices, like rounded screen corners.

On top of improved design, LG finally woke up and ditched some antiquated Android features, like removable batteries, which makes way for modern features like water resistance.

I've had some time with the $650 G6, and it's by far the best smartphone to come from LG. At the same time, my feelings are mixed about the new taller display. The G6's specs are also slightly outdated, which makes me hesitant in recommending it to friends and colleagues.
