Physical Overview

One of the best things about the new LG G6 is its design. The rounded FullVision Quad HD display looks excellent along with the very thin bezels. LG has kept the focus on the display and that is very evident in its design.

While it is not only minimalist, it is also quite handy for a phone with a 5.7 inch display. According to LG, it has managed to fit a 5.7 inch display in a shell that is generally used for a 5.2 inch display. The chamfered edges with a metal frame running around adds to the looks of the phone. The back of the phone is covered with glass.

Above the display, you will find the earpiece, ambient light sensor and the front camera. The front camera is a 5MP unit with a 100 degree wide angle lens. On the bottom, you will find the LG logo. The G6 comes with on-screen navigation buttons. The left side of the phone houses the volume rocker. Other than that, it is bare. On the right, the SIM card slot is present. The rest is bare.

Coming to the back of the G6, you will find the dual camera setup on the top. Just below the camera sensor module, the fingerprint sensor is present. Another interesting aspect of the G6 is that the power button has been embedded in the fingerprint sensor.

Near the bottom, you will find the G6 logo and some other information. On the top, you will find the mic and the 3.5mm audio jack. Coming to the bottom of the phone, you will find the secondary mic, the loudspeaker and the USB Type C 2.0 port for charging and data transfer.
