Update on my last comnent. Interested on others thoughts who may have had the same issue. I love my LG G6 bought new from JL last December. Biggest issue is the cheapo flimsy quite frankly crap Sim / SD tray that fits in the RH side. Had course to need to take the micro SD card that had been in the phone since I bought it. Stuck the pin tool in out it pops slightly. Pulled the tray out exactly as per the instructions. Part of the SD card side of the tray remained stuck in the phone. Took it to John Lewis and after a week they rang me to say LG were claiming it was damaged!. No sh*t Sherlock! I have checked online and I'm not the first to fall foul of the cheap design. Some of who have had the slot repaired under warranty. So I have since relayed this to JL who agreed and were going to go back to LG and have another go at them. Still waiting on an update. So be warned all. It's the same cheap flimsy plastic on the G5 and I believe the G7. The trays can be had for 2 quid on eBay. I wonder why so readily available? I think I might finally stop defending LG and move to another make. My 3rd LG and every one an issue and hassle getting them sorted.
Has anyone who owns an LG G6 had an issue with the Sim/SD card tray breaking? Bought my G6 from John Lewis last Christmas. Not took the tray out since I first put Sim and SD card in it then. Had a problem with email app constantly closing. Some online tips suggested removing the micro SD card and trying email then. When I tried the tray came out but a section of the SD card side of the tray remained in the phone. Stuck there. Looking online it seems I'm not the only one. I've taken the phone back to JL who are sending it off for repair. The tray is very flimsy. Once fixed I'm thinking of getting rid. Seriously thinking it's time to forget LG. Had boot loop probs with G3, which was fixed under warranty. Then G5 that had a screen issue. Refunded by Argos after they stopped selling the G5. Now this. They say things come in threes!
Pretty much my exact situation, replaced my dead s7 edge as it had been dropped too many times by my daughter. Delighted woth it and only complaint would be it is slightly thick for a phone these days but that's cosmetic and really not important. Plumped for thise over the chinese ones i was considering as i think NFC is a must for me in this country in this day and age.
They hobbled it further by only giving US models wireless charging - shame really as rather needless cost-cutting considering the original price point. Prices of these new have plummeted and are may keep doing so.
Seems like a lot of phone for the money. Shame they gimped it with a Snapdragon 821 from the outset when it's competitors had the much faster 835. Camera setup is really good, the wide-angle lens is arguably more useful and unique than a 2x optical telephoto. The only thing I don't like about LG phones is the odd and dated UI they insist on running.
