LG has to be given credit for making some bold choices with their 2016 flagship, but that was unfortunately a move that didn’t pay off. This time around, LG may have gone back to the basics in some ways, while doing enough to stand out from the crowd.
The LG G6 offers smooth performance and a fantastic camera, and includes features that are increasingly becoming the norm, like dust and water resistance.
