LG G6 Full Review

LG announced their new flagship smartphone recently which is LG G6. LG G6 is much premium smartphone as compare to LG G5. A glass back makes it more good looking and give a premium feel, it’s a mixture of glass and plastic and way smaller bezels makes it more beautiful, but the single problem with this smartphone is it’s a very slippery device and it’s a fingerprint magnet as well. The best thing about this phone is a screen, it has 5.7 inches round edges IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors with very less bezel. And it looks nice without any problem in daylight.
