LG US997 reviews

G6 US997 32GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Black) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 105.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I think this phone will die with me My previous phone was the LG G3, upgraded to G6 and it's a very very good device only complaint, I thought this came with the ultimate gorilla glass, and on my first week having it, I got a scratch on the screen, on week 4 got another scratch, and not because I don't give a F. because I take very good care of it, never dropped it, has been only on tables and never on the screen face down, besides my jeans pockets, not even my kids have touched it, and got those two scratches that you can see with the screen off and looking for light reflection, but still bothers me scratch aside, I got the best phone on the market, Suck it Apple owners

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Problems with activation The IMEI # on the box did not match the IMEI that was logged in the phone; the phone IMEI was missing a digit. When nanually inputting the IMEI from the cell, it would not work. When Verizon tried to scan the barcode from the box, it would not work. As a result, Verizon asserted that the phone was not compatible. After two (2) trips to Verizon, I convinced them to manually enter the IMEI from the box and not the phone -- It worked. So, not only was the number in the cell wrong, the number on the box had an unreadable bar code number. Fortunately, the phone now works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PHONE so far!! I did a lot of research and wanted an unlocked phone. I went to a local Verizon corporate store to check out the S8, S8 Plus, and this LG G6. At this price point and the fact I loved everything about my G4, I stuck with the LG and am very very happy with it so far in the short time I've had it. I feel the camera with dual mode is still better than the S8 while the S8 just didn't trip my trigger on anything considering it was $799. On another note---DO NOT get the black unless you hate the silver/platinum or whatever they call the color---the black on all of these shows fingerprints like you wouldn't believe just holding it for a minute. The silver colors DO NOT show them in comparison.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect, But... I previously owned the carrier branded version from T-Mobile and actually like the device for the design, functionality, screen size, and the dual cameras. The only thing that I felt was missing was a notification led light and the infrared function enabling you to control various devices (TV, Bluray Players, Cable boxes, etc). I then decided to try the Samsung Galaxy S8 which had everything this does except the Dual Camera. It also has the Led notification that I really missed. So after having the Samsung Galaxy S8 which is also a nice looking device with a great screen size I noticed that I missed certain features that the LG G6 has like the Dual Camera, Tap to wake screen and how it felt in my hand as oppose to the Samsung Galaxy S8 being lighter and slippery. Once I came here and saw the unbranded and unlocked version available for the price it was offered for roughly 200.00 dollars cheaper than Samsung's offering it wasn't something I had to consider. I immediately purchased this one after returning my Samsung Galaxy S8 and carrier branded LG G6. If you want to take nice pics and want a phone that does this with high end specs for a reasonable price look no further..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent phone Very happy with the LG G6. Came from the G4. Though I don't like cases, I decided to buy the thinnest case possible, just to give it some grip. I prefer this to the galaxy s8, as the screen has a more natural look to it. LG software is great, and I like that it isn't bundled with carrier bloatware. I've relieved that I get tmobile's wifi calling on it, on my existing mobile number, even though it isn't a tmobile phone. just wish it was lighter. I think LG is smart to shave weight off their newer V30, but I wouldn't want a phone any wider than the LG G6....this is the widest phone to fit comfortably in a medium sized hand, IMO.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 3rd LG Phone that went bad. I'd rate it a ZERO and LG doesn't stand behind their products as promised in warranty. Phone started acting up after around 9 months and became unusable at 13 months. LG 2nd Year Promise states "Once your claim is approved, you'll receive your replacement phone within two business days after your original device shipment date. Shipping both ways is covered by LG". I shipped on Saturday AM expecting a new device by Tuesday PM. LG tells me up to 5 days now and my tracking shows Thursday by end of day. Even after explaining the phone is business critical they didn't care. NO MORE anything LG.......buyer beware!!!!!! This is the 3rd LG phone that has gone bad on me in 1 year or less and phones were never damaged or dropped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I owned a G3 before this phone...wow! What an Upgrade I use my phone mainly for business. Skyping with co-workers, checking emails, making calls - But occasionally I take photos and video with it. I have been impressed with its build quality and photo ability. I especially love the wide-angle to regular. I use the wide-angle ALOT. I especially love how the phone gets rid of heat when its under heavy load...not sure how it does it but it doesn't stay hot for long unlike the G3 I had, which could burn your hand at times. Great phone! Great Tool - LG proves once again why I keep using their products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love it, but Verizon doesn't Love the phone all around including the display and better than average battery life. But be aware that although this is an "unlocked" phone, not all carriers will support it. In my case, Verizon will not active this phone and although I had a work-around using my old SIM card (that worked for a while), ultimately the system will recognize you are using a non-branded Verizon phone and you will have trouble. Spent a lot of time on phone and in store with Verizon wil no luck. It works great on ATT, but I have a deadzone at my home with them so I am looking for a different phone now.
