LG released two new smartphones this year, and both of them are gorgeous, trendy flagships. The LG G6 was announced back in March, while the V30 became available in U.S. markets only a month ago.
Everyone is raving about the Google Pixel 2 XL’s screen burn-in issues. People who have never even touched a Pixel smartphone, much less owned one, have been obnoxiously quick to hop on a bandwagon riot against the second-generation Mountain View device. Some of the most ardent haters are, as you may expect, Apple groupies. But is this new evidence that Google phones suck?
The new generation of Google Pixel phones, the Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL, have recently been subject to extreme controversy from both users and reviewers alike. This is mainly because of the biggest one of the bunch, the Pixel 2 XL (which is manufactured by LG), featuring an LG-made 6″ pOLED QHD+ panel that looks… well, rather underwhelming for the $849 starting price of the 2 XL. Said display, aside from the overall dull look, is also apparently running into several QC issues, one of them being that it’s absurdly prone to image retention and even permanent burn-in.
Fall is coming and several smartphone flagships have yet to be revealed. Of course, there has been rumor after rumor, but today, I wanted to ask you what would be your top choice for an upcoming smartphone? Also, feel free to comment what price point you think they should be set at and what features you feel it should include. The poll is embedded below.
Just recently we found that Google had shelved “muskie”—the supposed Pixel XL successor. Muskie is likely to be replaced by “taimen,” an even larger device. Now, reports are saying LG might be the manufacturer of that larger device.
When the LG G6 was released in February this year, it was widely accredited with being the best-looking smartphone in the world. It was also popularly theorized, however, that it would hold onto this title for a short time only with the new Galaxy phones coming out the next month. And sure enough. That’s exactly what happened. The new Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus are almost unanimously accepted to be the best-looking smartphones to ever grace humanity.
LG has opted for a complete redesign over their last iteration of the G series of smartphones, and the G6 brings to the table a lot of new features wrapped in a beautiful industrial design.
