With the G6, LG re-examined the modern Smartphone design language with the compact yet large screen G6 flagship for 2017. Complete with an entirely new screen aspect ratio (2:1 instead of 16:9), G6 has a large immersive screen design that does not break the ergonomic requirements of the average human hand.
By addressing dueling consumer demands for larger screens but yet more pocket able device, LG took on the challenge of re-imagining what a modern Smartphone should look like and function ergonomically. Also because of this different screen format there’s new square camera app with which one can preview the photo instantly in full size below the viewfinder right after taking it.
Let’s have look at some of the key features:
This is such a wonderful app which lets you create an interesting photo format with two square-ish pictures to share what you have in front of you and a selfie. Basically you are taking a selfie as well as what is in front of you simultaneously. This is also known as Match Shot.
Offers a promotion on Google play worth USD200, also it has a special version of temple run 2 lost jungle for the wide aspect. Both are used to promote display.
Google Assistant Artificial Intelligence
G6 is the one and only Smartphone outside of Google which provides built in Google assistant AI. This app claims to be more intelligent than Apple’s Siri.
It has a USB-C port, with the help of this particular port one can quick charge this phone having a non removable 3,300 mAh battery.
The thin bezel along with rounded edges not only draw the eyes instantly and made it look very nice but also help reduce the possible damage in a drop. Also it get rid of horrid metal sprayed plastic which caused so much controversy in past.
IP68 water resistant
Having this feature means we can sink this phone in 1.5 meters of water for 30 minutes and it won’t get affected. It means this can weather those pool, toilet or even rain drops.
By these particular features one can say that LG has created a wonderful Smartphone design which many others OEMs will follow this year. LG can rethink the use of applications like camera allowing for added functionality after they emphasized on physical design. This also helps them in reversing the market caused by a poorly executed G5 earlier.
