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 wide-angle lens comes with a 71 degree angle of view and F1.8 aperture while the super-wide-angle offers 125 degrees and a slower F2.4 aperture. OIS is available on the wide-angle. 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.

With improved camera specs, the interesting new display format and the waterproof body, the LG G6 looks like an appealing option for mobile photographers. Read the full article to find out how it performed in our test.
