    Not excited with this. Disappointed with my G4. Didn't use it much yet it is now a brick because of the boot loop issue.

    Hey, mine too! My LG G4 lasted exactly a week short of one year. Then the boot loop thing happened, and now it's a paperweight.

    I loved that phone, but I felt betrayed in the end.

    It served as an expensive lesson for me, never buy LG.

    LG has to offer the same promotion outside the US...

    Not that impressed with the S8 and I'm eyeing this one to replace my ageing Nexus 6P. Reviews, so far, have been great.

    I don't have a time to go to the mall yet.
    I'm just wondering if there's already a demo unit of the G6 in the LG store? Texted them and tweet no reply from LG.
    Great marketing LG.

    I was finally able to play with a G6 yesterday (Starhub, Vivo CIty)

    So I guess it will be unfair to compare it with the S8+ (since the screen already looked smaller)

    G6 looks and feels good... Much better than the G5.

    Issues I have against it...
    No App Drawer
    Navigation buttons are larger than usual
    From an ex-Samsung user - not compatible with Qi chargers

    IMO, it's like the S4/5... Phone is a flagship, but there are too much "gimmicks" to ignore and I don't get an App drawer to keep all unwanted/unused apps...

    There is another home screen option/theme that contains the app drawer just like on the V20
    LG should have made the Quad DAC and wireless charging standard on all regions.
    IMO it is a bad move that they decided to have these features region specific :(
