The G6 is LG's latest flagship smartphone. For the new model LG has abandoned the G5's modular concept and has instead designed a device that offers a water and dust proof body and a 5.7" QHD+ display with an unusual 18:9 aspect ratio. In the camera department LG sticks with the G5's dual-camera concept but both sensors now offer the same 13MP resolution. The wideangle lens comes with a 71 degree angle of view and F1.8 aperture while the super-wideangle offers 125 degrees and a slower F2.4 aperture. OIS is available on the wideangle. 4K video capture with stereo sound recording and a laser-assisted AF system are on board as well. Other specs are flagship-worthy, too. Android 7.0 is powered by last year's top-end chipset Snapdragon 821 and 4GB of RAM. 32 or 64GB of internal storage are expandable via a microSD slot. And unlike some of its competitors the G6 still offers a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Our review

The LG G6's main selling point is its secondary camera that offers the convenience and flexibility of a super wide-angle at the press of a button. However, it also comes with extensive manual controls and good video quality. If the sub-par image processing at base ISO is something you can live with, the G6 should be very high up your new smartphone shortlist.

Good for: Super wide angle shooting, video capture and manual control

Not so good for: Shooting base ISO images for large display sizes
