    Hey guys, I posted a video earlier this week with some thoughts on the G6 after using it as my daily driver for more than a month. Wanted to make sure you guys saw it.

    How has your G6 held up? Do you still like it as much as when you first got it?

    I love my LG G6 Joe but I've only had it for less than a week. I haven't even got a case yet. o_O

    OT: Are there more Android Forums readers than Phandroid readers?

    I've had mine for a little over a month. I can't really find anything negative to say about it. Coming from a Nexus 6 -- a phone I consider to be THE best in the Nexus line -- I was afraid anything else would be a compromise. I don't feel that way today.

    I have no issues with the 18:9 format and truthfully, even though the screen is a little smaller than the N6, it doesn't look that way, especially since the pixel density is much higher. I'm not doing anything fancy with the color temperature of the display, just basic default settings at a medium-high brightness level.

    The phone is much more holdable and pocketable than the N6 was (both in cases). Out of the case the N6 ... and the S8 ... feel great in your hand, but those are both phones that to mee are much more droppable, so a case isn't really an option there. The G6 could live without a case pretty well and I might go there eventually, but I've gotten used to the clear slim cases so I'm sporting one of those now.

    I'm finding the wide/normal lenses to be much more useful than I ever thought I would. It's not Instagram material, but when I need to take pictures of the back of a server or switch in a tight rack, the wide angle has been a godsend. And, I do agree, Joe, that Samsung does way too much post processing. Do they even have an option to capture RAW? The G6 does. :D

    Battery life has not been an issue. I have wireless chargers at my desk at both work and home and just set it there so I almost never have a charge lower than 80%.

    I'm only at 55% brightness myself and folks have said "nice screen". That's one of a couple of things that have amazed me about this phone.

    Ditto. I keep it at only 50%, and great battery life. I bought a Bodyglove case and tempered glass protector before the phone.

    But it has only beem a week. I too came from a Nexus 6 . This is great to hold. Small frame, all screen.

    Officially one month in. Purchased on May 1st delivered May 18th.

    The form factor is what has won me over. This thing feels like a phone in my hands. Length to width is excellent. My cotton khaki heather case ended the confusion of using it commando. This case gives you top and bottom cues which are hard to miss. That's a problem I've been experiencing since the Samsung Galaxy S2. The S2 had a chin that was hard to miss. You could always tell where the top and bottom where.

    Current phone design tends toward an equilateral slab.

    One thing i do miss is the notification led. More from nostalgia than usefulness but i thought they were cool.

    Next year 4.9 out of five will be harder than ever to acheive for any OEM.
