With the LG G6, the modular design of the LG G5 is gone in favour of a more traditional phone, one that takes multiple elements from the top handsets around, blended together to assemble a terrific all-rounder of a handset. 

The G6 is a much more conservative design than its predecessor, taking the form of a sealed unit that drops the removable battery of the previous LG flagships, replacing it with a larger-capacity power pack and waterproof shell, which we think is a pretty good trade-off. 

While it lacks somewhat in innovation, it makes up for with its impressive 18:9 display. This, along with reduced bezels, gives the user more screen real estate to play with, and also introduces some clever little changes to the user interface to exploit the extra pixels, especially when it comes to multi-tasking and photo taking capabilities. 

While its IPS LCD display lacks the colourful pop of a Super AMOLED screen, the addition of the Dolby Vision / HDR 10 provides support for all manner of beautiful and natural-looking HDR content.

The LG G6 camera is upgraded in a way, but also remains very similar to last year's in others. The same normal and wide-angle camera lenses are back, but they're now both 13MP. 

The LG G6 is a phone that takes things back to basics, and does so well. The sleek metal and glass fusion is attractive, and to anyone using the iPhone 7 Plus, the ratio of screen to body will be staggering.
