I don't think I've ever seen in the last 11 years of capacitive screen smartphones a bargain remotely like this. A flagship device that, even at full RRP, gives its competitors a run for their money. Yet for some reason it hasn't sold very well - was it bad marketing? Some initial reviews questioned the supposedly cartoony look from photos, or the supposedly mediocre battery life - whilst praising the waterproof, sleek, robust design and smooth user experience. However, after about 2 weeks of owning one, and letting it settle in, I can confirm a few things immediately:
1) I'm getting around 2 days of battery life on average - have reached three days with very light use. I have the always on display activated, but disabled during sleeping hours. My typical usage is a mixture of: photography (with also RAW photo development sometimes, plus snapseed editing), Spotify, a fair amount of browsing with Chrome, quite a lot of facebook and messenger apps, some calls/texts, news apps, google assistant - but no gaming. Bluetooth is permanently paired to a smartwatch. Wifi is mostly off as I have a generous 4G data bundle. Quickcharge 3 is super fast, seems to charge to full from near 0% in just over an hour.
2) The camera produces images with the most natural colours I've seen from a smartphone - it's so good that my usual activity of editing in snapseed seems largely redundant now (I must assume that there's been a major software update since the initial reviews which criticised the camera colour performance). The manual controls are so comprehensive and interesting (sadly no control over aperture though, like all Android smartphones AFAIK) - and RAW image capture allows for further photographic experimentation. Plus, the wide angle camera is so fantastically useful - arguably more so than a second zoom lens that some other 2 lens smartphones have. In any case the main, optically stabilised f1.8 lens seems slightly closer than usual, perhaps something like 35mm(?) - and I like that. My only complaint about the camera is that it's maybe a bit too easy to blow highlights, but careful use of auto mode plus manual controls help to mitigate that. The selfie camera is impressive considering it's only 5 megapixels, but perhaps not class leading.
3) Oh my, what a gorgeous audio output with quad DAC activated - capable of driving anything with aplomb. Mind you, it's not too shabby without as well. Battery life doesn't seem to be noticeably affected by having it activated. Also, something I really appreciate: stereo mics for rather hi quality and lossless stereo audio recording (also for video recording) - maybe not as great as a dedicated portable audio recorder such as one from Zoom, but still very impressive.
It's a beauty of a phone, understated and elegant yet robust. The screen, whilst not quite as sci-fi as the Galaxy S8, is simply gorgeous, and massive. A friend of mine bought an S8 recently. We were hanging out and I gently asked: how's your battery life doing? He seemed enthused that by 2pm his battery life had "only" dropped to around 50%...thinking that was satisfactory (he'd been browsing a fair bit online during the morning) - but then, he was previously an iPhone owner, so that might explain it...
I prefer the G6 over the S8 in every way - except that the S8 has a more modern chipset, but as all the reviews confirm, you don't notice the difference. And now you can grab the highest specced G6 for half the price of an S8. Half the price!!
I would have liked an S8 , and in common with some of the other reviews i suspect that is the slightly better handset. However my handset was an upgrade through vodafone and while they would do a deal on a G6 they would not discount the s8 or s8+ AT ALL meaning the g6 contract was £400 cheaper than the S8 and £600 cheaper than the S8+ over the 24 month contract.
As others have said, this is a fairly incremental upgrade to the G4.
The handset feels heavier...its slimmer than the G4 but the phone is longer and as such the centre of gravity sits higher in the hand. It takes a little getting used to.
The simcard and memory card are in a special tray which needs to be opened via a special tool provided. Par for the course now but still less convenient than taking the back off my G4 to get to the SD card.(android file transfer doesnt work on my mac for some reason).
Initial feel of the screen dimesions are good...though i do feel that toolbars etc have been stretched in some apps rather than the actual 'application content'. On chrome just now typing this the address bar and keyboard could stand to loose 50% of grey empty space between buttons/text. Perhaps these elements are in proportion to everything else but it doesnt feel to me as if it is. Also the device is definitely not bezelless as per some of the initial press.
The screen is only slightly more dpi than the S4 and its barely noticable if at all.
The phone feels notably faster , particularly in some 'normal' activities such as rendering and moving a map in google maps, rendering webpages etc. Download speeds over 4G also seem markedly faster. I almost hit my 8Gb monthly data limit in 2 weeks as the phones default is for wifi to default to 4G if the 4G signal is better/faster. This can be switched off but i wasnt aware of it until i looked after getting an android data usage notification. My home broadband/wifi is slow copper line broadband.
The bluetooth is much better. With my g4 i had to keep a line of sight with my handset when using a bluetoot headset for work (plantronics edge)...i was surprised with my G6 to be able to walk round my ground floor getting a good signal through (or around) brick walls. For music etc the G6 still has a 3.5mm jack and sound quality is at least as good as the G4. Certainly good enough for top quality spotify files. Also worth noting that my UK G6 DID come with a set of earphones...similar to the red fabric ones that came with G4 but white - most online unboxings i watched claimed that the handset shipped in the UK without a headset.
Main negative is that the cameras (particularly the front facing 'selfie' camera) perform badly in low light. Google for examples. Ive binned a large number of selfies with my kids because they were blurry and grainy...not something i ever did with the G4. In good light the camera takes excellent pictures and the wide angle lens has been unexpectedly useful on some ocassions. As with the G4 the camera can be slightly 'laggy' and i still experience a second or so of delay between pressing the camera button and the picture being taken in some circumstances. The G6 does not have laser focussing.
The new size format could be seen as a negative as well.... Some apps have fairly discrete borders to them...they havent been too obtrusive. However if watching a landscape youtube clip originally taken in portrait the black space feels much more noticable than on a 'normal' handset.
I sat with my G4 and my G6 and browsed the net with them side by side. The dimension change means that the G6 shows pages at around 90% of the size of the G4. If for example, you open a news article on msn the images and text all appear slightly larger, but no worse quality, on the G4. It makes sense in terms off the width of the screens but is still a little disappointing. As noted the screen resolution is not materially different. Tbh most websites use low resolution images anyway so in 'normal' web use the 'raw material' of most websites doesnt justify a 2k screen like the G4/G6.
If you have always bought a bigger and bigger handset every few years this might be your first 'step down' to smaller rendered cotent..as while the screen is larger the dimensions and proportions of web content are largely driven by the screens width, not its diagonal, and as such will be slightly smaller than the G4 (assumimg you largely use your phone in portrait mode)
The reduced screen dimesnions also slightly impact use in some cases, for example, the stock keyboard no longer has a '.com' button.
In summary the G6 is a capable upgrade if its being offered to you, but my gut feeling is that its not a massive step up from the G4...especially if the G4s camera was one of the major factors that drove you to buy the phone. I 'needed' to replace my G4 as the battery was a nightmare, and two of my friends had similar issues. I recently used my G4 to navigate and plan my holiday whike abroad and i had to buy a spare battery and an external powerpack just to get through a day and still be able to use google maps to navigate my drive home.
If i hadnt been getting frustrated with my G4 i think i might have been better holding off 6-12 months for something else, as it was i felt this was the best compromise of price and performance available to me in april 2017.
Seller was great. I had charging issues due to a bad stock cable. Initially I thought it was the phone, seller authorises a return immediately, I won't be returning it,since it was av issue with the cable provided.
