LG G6: First Look

Simple yet elegant box of the LG G6

Introduction:

LG G6 is the latest flagship phone from LG for the year 2017. It seems that LG has finally made a nice phone that can compete with the Samsung Galaxy S8 and iPhone 7. But there is some unwise decision here – the use of old Snapdragon 821 instead of the Snapdragon 835 — but the new and excellent display and the superior camera make it one of the best Android phone available in the market.
