LG G6 - Carphone Warehouse for £379.99

Found 18th Nov
Not sure if it's of interest to anyone but the LG G6 is now selling for £379.99 in the Carphone Warehouse black tag deals event. Might be good for anyone wanting to pick one up from an actual shop rather than online

I have both - got a Nokia 8 from Amazon Warehouse last week.

Screen is nicer on the G6 - it seems to pop more and just feels like a better screen to me. Also phone is not much bigger given the smaller bezels.

G6 doesn't feel any slower but the lack of bloat on the Nokia 8 and more up-to-date version of Android is a nice perk.

Fingerprint scanner is much faster and more reliable on the G6.

G6 seems to charge fast with more of my chargers. I haven't seen 'charging rapidly' at all on the Nokia 8, though I haven't opened the charger it came with.

Nokia 8 doesn't have a glass back, so won't pick up loads of tiny scratches like the G6. The G6 feels *slightly* more premium to me though.

The camera on the G6 is undoubtedly better - even when comparing with the Pixel camera on each. The Nokia 8 camera seems very slow, and also the wide angle camera on the G6 is more useful than the monochrome one on the Nokia 8 for me.

Battery life on both is very good.

Same price Amazon.

Wouldn't touch an LG phone. Had the LG G4 still under warranty and had the boot loop issue. LG said there was evidence of 3rd party repair and refused to fix it, even tho it was a brand new phone.

My experience with LG customer services for a phone and an led TV have been very poor.

I'm not knocking this deal just adding my experience with LG customer services.

Had bootloop on LG g4. Motherboard changed under warranty and phone returned within days. Love my g4 and no real need to upgrade, but am very tempted by the g6.... Expecially at this price!

Same experience here, very tempting but my G4 still does everything I need it to. Just wish there was a an update for it...

I have 2 months warranty left as i bought mine from vodafone, they give 2 years as most of you wont know.
Its been in for a repair 3 times, i still love it and i still want a lg g6.
Can't fault lg CS, they fixed the mobile within 1 week on the 3 repairs. Iv had the ghosting issue, motherboard replaced amd something else.

Had to deal with LG to repair a computer monitor, total incompetence is being polite..... months it went on for...every phone call was just lies and the end result... monitor never got fixed. And the threaten further action and they finally sent me a cheque

Iv spoke to cs chat, carphone give you 2 years warranty. I wonder if amazon do

However, the Nokia 8 is not IP68, whereas the G6 is. That, for me personally, is important.

As others have mentioned, wouldn't mind one of these but G4 still performing well ☺

Its a smaller screen but a larger phone, as the G6 has tiny bezels. Also the wide angle lense.
Other than that, these phones are much of a muchness

Waiting till Black Friday, then I can finally buy a G6. And for that very reason there will be no reduction in price on BF.
It will go down the week after I finally buy at this price!


£10 CB available at CW via Quidco & TCB.

Hi does anyone know if Ringtones are loud ? Can they be heard in a noisy environment ?

How is Camera focus in low light ?

It's between LG G6 and Samsung S8 or S8+
The G6 is much better value although I don't know about reliability.

Also I'm not a fan of the edge type screen.
Just seems it's pointless and distorts what's on the screen and not sure why everyone thinks edge is so cool.



Thanks

S8 camera is slightly better. S8 focuses much more reliable as it uses dual pixel focusing - so is also quicker at focusing.

G6 is easier to use day to day to me. Edges can be annoying on the S8.

Hi misterleoni thx for your reply

How loud are the ring tones on the G6. Compared to s8 Can they easily be heard outdoors ?

I don't have the two side by side at the moment but if I were to call it I would say that the G6 speaker is slightly more 'rounded' and less shrill. Other than that they seem a similar volume.

Fantastic price for this year's LG flagship - Samsung S7 Edge same price I believe on Amazon but it's a model from 2016, doesn't stand a chance against G6

Cashback for sim free handsets is now £20 at Quidco, brings this down to £359
