Good value but not high performance enough
Although this was a flagship phone of LG at its time, the performance is lacking to its competitor and battery was draining too fast. Taking a photo was also a little bit slow. But for the price, I was quite happy to have it for over 2 years now.
Purchased for $637.
I purchase one from Ebay Australia, figure out the reception indoors is poor i am usually unavailable, i changed my sim three times to different providers all the same problem.
Purchased in at eBay for $250.
Quality phone and great value
I've had a LG G2 since 2014 & am only upgrading because I have run out of space & I can't add any. I checked out many You tube reviews and decided on a G6 as opposed to Samsung S8. It is solidly built water and dust resistant ( will survive 30 minutes submerged in a bucket of water) with superb cameras especially the wide angle & runs Android 8 with an upgrade to 9 not far away. So it is a 2 year old phone that originally retailed for over $1000.00 but I just paid $283.00 & it is a dual SIM model with 64GB of storage upgradeable to 2TB by SD ca...rd. In some of the tests newer ($1000.00+) phones are slightly faster but in reality it is hardly noticeable. The Snapdragon 821 chip might be nearly 3 years old but is still really good. What I see on new 2019 phones is a tiny advancement for 3 to 4 times the price. The display is 18-9 which is actually 2-1 & you can run 2 apps simultaneously in separate square windows. LG were the first to have really small bezels & no physical buttons on the front. Every manufacturer has now followed suit. Good security with fingerprint and face recognition etc. It has an IPS screen which is surprising given that LG are the world masters of OLED. It is very high resolution though and as bright as any other. I have never found a phone that is much chop in bright sunlight anyway. I have all my apps transferred over plus apps I had to delete due to lack of space & they run faster than on the old G2 which is expected but then they were not slow on the G2 anyway. I have my collection of CDs and other music & the HiFi DAC is outstanding. It has a fast charger & takes less than 1 3/4 hours to fully charge from dead flat. From my perspective I could not find anything to match it for quality, features, functionality, performance and most importantly price. The one disappointment is that the battery is non removable. This is largely to maintain the waterproofing but my LG2 battery is still performing well after 5 years so hopefully this will last as long.

I've been using this phone for 2 years and really like it. The phone size is just nice and the bezel is pretty small to allow for a sizeable screen. It comes with an excellent camera. I'm still getting regular firmware updates. Very happy with this phone.

It is a nice phone, reasonably priced with a serious designer's fault
The battery life could be better, but I was overall happy with the phone until one day.
I have gently taken out the sim tray, without applying any force to it. And it snapped like on the picture.
I have purchased a replacement SIM tray. But you can only get non original ones which do not work. So I have inserted the old original one back. The next time I took it out it snapped completely, part of it now stayed in the phone.
Which makes a $700 machine now dead and useless. Contacted ebay where I got it from, contacted paypal, contacted LG, contacted the seller - everyone said to me that I am not covered and that they did not want to deal with me. I was expecting for some support from LG, if not warranty at least a spare part.

Start working slowly after 1.5 years of use and the apps do not run smoothly after the update. The camera quality and display are quite good. However, It has a bad durability. Not recommend this product!

Top Value for money Mobile
Hate to think how many Smart phones I have now owned all I can say for value for money this would have to be the best. Camera is great & all over the phone dose everything my iphone or samsung dose.Just wish these phones from all manufacturers could do something better with the displays in sunlight. anyway big tick from me.
Great value for money
I had the LG G5 and after 2 years the battery was getting to near the end of its life. Bad experiences with fake branded batteries and a couple of hundred dollars in vouchers made upgrading to the LG G6 an option.
It does everything well and I use both sims as I use this for my personal phone and my work phone. The size is good and while it isn't a quantum leap forward in any way compared to the LG G5, is still a reasonable upgrade. I was expecting the camera would be a little better than the G5 but I think it is a minor step backwards. The ...lack of an IR blaster and lack of contactless charging seem odd for a premium phone (Australian spec phones); however 4GB RAM and 64GB memory mean it is a good performer and I don't need a memory card for my music (which is good as I need the second SIM card). I keep my LG G5 with wireless apps and IR remote for my cameras so the old phone is still in use but not as a phone. Happy! Other things - good screen and easy to read. Call quality is good but I seem to not hear a lot of phone calls - that's probably me rather than the phone.
Good phone alternative to Samsung
I bought LG G6 because i'm bored with Samsung. Camera is good, but probably is a good idea to change it to manual mode to adjust accordingly., Good display, good screen size and much stronger battery life than G5. Good speaker which is located near charging port. Good security features and you can upgrade it to Android 8.1 now.
My hubby is using this phone quite happy with it but not having an excellent camera but good with other features and affordable, battery last long. overall not an excellent phone but hey what you pay you get it accordingly we paid around $600 its a good bargain. I would definitely recommend it.
Will never go near LG again after my experience with this phone and dreadful customer service!!!! Was locked out by Norton security somehow and billions of calls later, you know what I mean!, got absolutely nowhere! Just had to suck up the loss!!!!
Extremely dissatisfied as you can imagine!
This sort of thing happens all too often!
Went with this over the samsung s 8. Sure it's a poor mans version but the camera is so good. Love taking 3 D shots and using it for my wall paper. Had a china android phone before this and GPS was driving me nuts. LG g6 working GPS has improved my life by 137%
This has been my favorite phone! I purchased this a year ago and it works brilliantly. The battery is fantastic, it lasts all day and I use it all day too, mostly for surfing the net.
The photos are excellent and the water resistance brilliant too. I also had an LG G4 which was very good - amazingly thin and light but the battery wasn't the best. This was a huge leap forward. The price was excellent - I paid $650 online after it had been on the market for about 2 months. It retails usually for $1000 so I feel like I got a bargain. I like...
3 months before it died, super slow to repair
Had a Lg g2, super phone. Got Lg g6, died in 3 months time. Black screen, unresponsive and very hot. 3 weeks later still no phone, awaiting repairs. Unacceptable for such an expensive phone. Very sad as was such an LG fan. I think if a new phone dies within such a short time frame, 3 weeks and still no phone is super frustrating and unacceptable.
Sucks on all aspects
Camera is really poor, can't adjust for light at all. Overexposes and is all milky and fuzzy. OLD android is SO much better on a image. Too big to fit into a pocket, won't stay in a shirt pocket, slips out due to super smooth case, so thin it will crack upon the first drop. Why spend money on a thin slippery phone and spend $100 extra for glass protection and a rubber case? audio is poor, very little vol. control. All callers sound like they are talking through a comb with tissue paper wrapped over the comb. Signal strength is maybe 1 to 2 bars when you stand next to a cell phone tower.
