    I got the lg g6 H870 european version. Any 60fps videos i watch on youtube are capped at 720p60 when they should be at 1440p60! Seems many people have this problem and at least the asian version of the phone goes up to 1080p60. It's not the full 2k it should be but it's something. So it's a case of lg not caring for its european market. Don't know about the us version but it's inadmissible that a flagship phone released in march still has this problem and no guarantees it will fix it. If i paid money for a 1440p i shouldn't have to watch videos capped at 720. Tested on 1ghz wifi and 4g. The other resolution options don't even appear. To test it yourself search peru 8k hdr 60fps on youtube

    I've heard of others with same problem, various devices and not necessarily with the LG G6. So I guess it's possibly a Google/YouTube issue that they need to fix, rather than LG.

    Most likely it's a carrier restriction that Google remembers. I just watched a 1080p video on Wifi, but when I switch to mobile AT&T throttles me to 720p.
