Useful manual shooting mode gives more control over the image capture

The LG G6 has one of the best camera manual shooting mode out there. It offers photographers the option to fine tune the camera settings to their liking, rather the relying on the base auto mode which sometimes can lead to undesired resaults.

The LG G6 produces really impressive high-resolution videos. The LG G6 can shoot in various resolutions, including in 18:9 aspect ratio and also in 4K/UHD. The 18:9 aspect ratio video recording was design to be viewed on the native screen resolution of the LG G6. It's a wider shot that was...

I agree with some of the comments about the really annoying noise patterns seen in images when viewed in 100% magnification, but when it comes to colors, the LG G6 just rocks. To demonstrate what I mean, just take a look at those LG G6 sample images in this Koran website here. Forget for a moment...

The LG G6 dual-camera has its issues, but I think that the G6 is one of the best phones for a traveler, yes, because of its camera. The main reason I think the LG G6 has the best travel camera is because of its wide-angle lens. I am spending quite a lot of time traveling in many countries, and I...

I've seen the sample images taken by phonearena.com and was really shocked how sharp the images are. Some people here have suggested that the camera applies strong sharpening. I took a close look at this image and enlarges it to view it at 100% scale. The images is tack sharp. Just look at the...

The LG G6 comes with a rear camera that is equipped with a wide-angle lens that provides 125-degree field of view. LG has conducted a poll where 132 participants share their opinions about what being the most useful for them shooting with the LG V20 wide angle camera. According to the poll results...

The LG G6 comes with a very useful feature which according to their Google Plus page it is called 'Square'. In this Square shooting mode, you can actually see an instant preview of what you shot. This mode was mean for taking 1:1 aspect ratio pictures, this is one of the reasons I guess LG called it...

I just came back after reading the LG G6 review by digitaltrends.com. I have to be honest that I although I agree with their opinion about the wide-angle lens, the sample images that I've seen, including theirs, show very limited dynamic range. You can take a look at the camera samples they put on...

The LG G6 rear cameras produces more than average amount of image noise. I am positive that there is an extra sharpening applied to the image, with I think 1px radius. This just makes the noise in the image more prominent. The main cause of that is the small sensor pixels I believe. I've inspected...

As of my observation and after analyzing sample image the regular angle lens, lead me to a conclusion that the LG G6 images coming straight out of the camera are over-processed. By saying 'over-processed', I mean that the image processed in a way that they look unnatural in some degree and it was...

The LG G6 wide-angle rear camera doesn't do well in low-light due to its relatively slow aperture, and the lack of OIS. This is a phone camera after all, not a mirrorless camera with a micro four thirds sensor. The small pixel size of the camera sensor requires a very fast aperture in order to...

The LG G6 doesn't perform well in low-light. I've been inspecting many camera sample taken at night or indoors and you can clearly see that the small 1.12-micron pixels of the Sony IMX258 sensor directly impact the low-light performance. This becomes even more severe in the second wide-angle camera...

Both of the LG G6 rear cameras, the wide-angle and the normal one, utilize the Sony IMX258 1/3.06" 13MP Exmor RS CMOS sensor. This is the same sensor found in the Oppo A57, Asus ZenFone Pegasus 3s and BLUE Vivo 6 among others. Given a f/2.2 aperture, the Sony IMX258 doesn't perform well in low...

I was really disappointed to see such a strong sharpening apply to images after seeing the LG G6 sample images posted on phonearena.com. In the image taken of the fountain in Placa Catalunya in Barcelona, if you zoom out the image to 100% scale, you can see clearly see that the water of the fountain...

Copper heat pipe to keep your phone cool on high CPU load

The LG G6 features a copper heat pipe that was design to keep the application processor cool by driving heat away from it. LG also made sure that the LCD driver IC and the AP are distant apart to further reduce heat accumulating near where the AP resides.

Lots of RAM (4GB)

The LG G6 features plenty of RAM, as expected from a flagship device, although I believe that some expected 6GB (or more ?!). Still, plenty of RAM to promote smooth multitasking and great gaming experience alongside its powerful processor and GPU.

The US version of the LG G6enjoys wireless charging, but it won't come with 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC (Digital to Analogue converter)on board, which improved the audio quality. From what I've heard and read, the LG G6 with the on board Hi-Fi DAC will only be available in Asian markets like in South...

I think it's a mistake putting the speaker in either the bottom or the top. The LG G6 comes with a single firing speaker at the bottom right side of the phone. This is a bad place to put a speaker because when you hold the G6 in landscape mode , like when watching movies or playing games, your hand...

The LG G6 comes with a 18:9 aspect ratio display. LG used this type of display to allow it to make a phone that comes with a large screen yet still narrow and improved one-handed operation. It also based some of its new UX 6.0 GUI functionality to match that added vertical space, like the Square...

The LG G6 supports Quick Charge 3.0 fast battery-charging technology. So what is it useful? because unlike the LG G5, the G6 doesn't have a removable battery. You won't be carrying a second battery to replace the one in the phone once the battery dies. Your only option will be to charge your phone....

The US version of the LG G6 receives a wireless charging support, which is compatible with both Qi and PMA. I like this feature for its convenience, so when I come home tired, I just put the phone on the charging plate and forget about it.

The LG G6 comes with some interesting battery saving options. There are three options available from what I've seen in the recap trailer shown in the LG G6 launch event in MWC2017. There is a "Base optimization", which allows you to adjust the video resolution to save battery power. There is the...

Non-removable battery

The LG G6 is expected to have a non-removable battery. I personally see it as a disadvantage, because I always like carry a second battery with me just in case. I'm a quite a heavy multimedia user that's why.

The LG G6 isn't compatible with Daydream, Google's mobile VR platform. The reason for that is that it doesn't employ an OLED display. It's not the OLED specifically is requires, but it's the only type of screen that meets the minimum specified requirements for Gray-to-Gray, white-to-Black and...
