LG is back in great shape. The Korean manufacturer is going to market in the next few days its new high-end smartphone, the LG G6. Like the Galaxy S8 Samsung (the other Korean), it has a screen almost without edges, in the format extended 18:9 instead of 16:9 usual. The display area occupies the greater part of the front side of the mobile.

If the effect is more than enticing, it does have a few flaws. In fact, many applications and games have not yet been updated to adapt to this new ratio. All the applications that come with the phone are, but most of the others, such as the game Super Mario Run, are displayed with a black band at the top and bottom of the screen. LG proposes to adapt this format via an option, but the two alternatives available to crop the edges slightly of the application. Nothing really satisfying for the moment.

And the quality of the photos is clearly the appointment. In daylight, the images are detailed and precise, but it is especially in low light as the sensor 13 megapixel camera of the G6 shows impressive, with images just as successful. It is rarely taken into default, and its competitors Samsung and Apple have now in front of them a strong contender. On the other hand, it should be noted that the photo application and the autofocus does not show as reactive as the iPhone and other Galaxy S recent.
