5 Best Features of LG G6
These are the LG G6 best features that end users might not know existed brought to you by you Sydney CBD Repair Centre Team.
NEW 18:9 RESOLUTION
Focusing on the new display, the 18:9 aspect ratio is a big change and allows users to get much more viewing space into an even smaller package than ever before. Obviously this will require some optimizations from app developers in order for the aspect ratio to be fully supported, but considering many smartphone makers seem to be considering this resolution, we don’t expect this to be much of an issue.
BEST IN CLASS CAMERA
Moving on to camera, the LG G6 continues the company’s dual camera approach, though it makes several changes here. First, both cameras on the rear are now the “main camera” with identical 13MP resolutions and camera sensors. One is the main lens, with f/1.8 aperture and 71-degree field of view, the second is a wide-angle lens with 125-degree viewing angle and f/2.4 aperture. For those wondering, there’s no OIS on the wide angle, so software stabilization is used instead. On the front, you’ll find a 100-degree 5MP camera.
NEW USER INTERFACE
The LG G6 is running Android 7.0 Nougat, with the latest version of LG’s UI on top.
The updated user interface features a refreshing new look with natural and vivid colors which can be seen throughout many of the apps and the included set of wallpapers. Due to the unique screen size, LG found it could basically divide the interface into two grid squares (2:1 aspect ratio) that come together seamlessly, and so you’ll notice this ‘grid-like’ setup in a lot of LG’s apps. LG has also updated icons for better uniformity, rounded corners for its background folders, and other small touches that make the UI stand out just a little bit more.
The LG G6 is certainly an attractive enough phone, though some would argue that the new design doesn’t necessarily stand out as much as their past choices. In many ways it looks quite similar to what we are seeing from HTC, Samsung, and even others like Honor. The good news is that the switch to metal/glass does allow the LG G6 to gain a few new tricks like water resistance and wireless charging. It’s also worth mentioning that, unlike some of its rivals, LG isn’t ditching the headphone jack anytime soon.
As for color options? LG doesn’t offer much variety in choices, at least for now, opting for pretty standard choices of titan (silver), black and white. In contrast, the LG G5 was offered in two other colors: gold and pink.
Sounds continues to be a big part of the LG experience with the G6. The LG G6 will employ a Hi-Fi Quad DAC, but with a catch: It will only come with this in select markets, including Korea. For those wondering, the US and Europe both won’t get this support. Still, even without the quad DAC, we expect the audio experience to be solid here. It seems a bit odd that LG opted only to release this feature in select models/markets, but for LG’s part, they say that “local and global” input went into many decisions with the LG G6 and ultimately it was designed the feature was less requested outside of Korea and other select markets.
