The LG G6, though it now ditches the modular design of the G5; its design now looks a lot more modern and up there with the likes of the Samsung and HTC flagship devices. The 5.7-inch 1440p display with its 18:9 aspect ratio looks incredible. Like the majority of smartphones released the G6 follows a similar design language in sandwiching the smartphone between two layers of glass. On the rear of the device you’ll find the fingerprint sensor which is placed there to allow for a screen to body ratio above 78%. There you will also find the dual lens camera system which works very differently to those found in other flagship devices from the likes of Apple, HTC and Samsung. Like the G5 the G6 also have a secondary wide-angle camera which allows users to capture more in a video or still image. We’ll get into talking able to camera and design further down.
Along with the G6 itself purchasing the device gets you a USB C charge and sync data cable, the G6 is one of the first smartphones to adapt this change and support the new standard of USB. Along with this there is a fast charge USB plug which will help charge the phone faster than typical smartphones. There is also some standard LG branded earphones which plug into the 3.5mm jack, yes it has a headphone jack..
Benchmarks are never a true depiction of a devices capabilities, but what they are good at is showing the differences between devices when it comes to a set range of activities; these can include running various algorithms or even rendering a specific scene and counting its frame rate. The number one reason as to why I like running these tests is that you can compare the results to the previous model or other smartphones entirely, which allows you to make an informed decision on if upgrading is 'worth it' or if you should perhaps hold back to the next generation.
Above you also see the scores of the GFXBench Open GL tests and once again comparing it to the previous smartphone the S8 there has been improvements; though the improvements aren't as big as those we have seen such as the single core side of things from geekbench, But nevertheless when it came to the heavier graphically intense tasks there was approximately a 16% increase, with the less intense tasks gaining close to 12% of an increase in performance.
