    LG G6 launched with 5.7-inch FullVision screen at MWC 2017

    What we learnt from the pre-launch teasers meant there were few surprises.

    I don't know whose hands it is going to fit into at a height just shy of 15 cm, but it certainly aren't mine. And I have quite large hands. Maybe I'm just holding things wrong...

    The size isn't that bad, I had the G5 and while it was big it was easy enough to manage.

    Overall was hoping for a bit more from the G6, the stupid regional variations are a bit ridiculous. US gets wireless charging, no where else does. Some European models are 64GB, UK is 32GB. Korea(I think) gets a quad-DAC, everywhere else normal. Just seems a bit odd as none of those features change the overall look of the device and seems a lot of messing around when they could have had an all singing device for everyone.

    And its still using the 821 processor.

    Before the launch I was 100% getting one, now I am 50/50 and to be honest waiting to see what the S8 brings.

    BTW, why is the first YouTube video marked as private?

    Going to be giving this one a miss, the £699 price is just too much for me for this model. Speculation was it was going to be nearer previous phone's prices around the £500 mark.

    The screen is about the biggest change and its now non modular and waterproof but nothing groundbreaking.

    Will be keeping hold of the iPhone 7 and seeing what the S8 has to offer.
