    I don't see this doing well at the price it's likely to be, and if they wait to lower the price there will be more phones superior to it at that point.

    Totally agree. How are they going to have it on the V20 & then downgrade while charging flagship prices? I think most people would take better sound over LG's choice of giving US consumers wireless charging instead.

    ...That's what I'm saying. If the marketing message talks about high-quality audio, it will also need to address how to get high quality audio.
    It actually improves any audio coming from the headphone jack. You don't need high-res audio to get better sound with a better DAC. It'll make YouTube, Spotify, Google Play Music, Pandora, and anything else with audio sound better.

    I still don't really understand why LG has made different SKUs with different featuresets depending on market.

    Shouldnt every G6 come with wireless charging and an improved DAC?
    I guess they have done the market research. They probably don't want want two product lines with a DAC here but who know?

    They had me until I saw that. Asia market will have the DAC, but not USA or Europe. Big failure right there. The G5 was terrible with audio and my V20 sounds so good (as was the V10) . I'm not even an audiofile junkie, I just remember how terrible the G5 audio was when I owned it.

    I had the v10. It did sound good. But if you want to get blown away, get an axon7. Dual dacs PLUS. dolby atmos. And its one of the highest rated phones of 2016 at about 400.00 less.

    I rather have more storage, DAC, and wireless charging.
    1 out of 3 ain't bad.

    Thanks, but I like the wide angle lenses on the V20, my other favorite feature.

    Another great audio feature of the LG's is the Qualcomm aptX HD audio for bluetooth. One of the only phones out there that streams high resolution audio over bluetooth.

    I think the storage is more of a failure than anything but .. to each their own. A DAC is no concern to me so I am in that camp of Americans that don't mind normal sound. I use BT anyway 100% of the time so :P.

    LG is fast becoming just like HTC. They will never learn from their mistakes. They have to release a phone that will blow away Samsung's phone. If they would of released the 64G, quad DAC and wireless charging to every market, they would of stood a chance at beating Samsung. Every year they release a phone that they consider "good enough" and watch Samsung eat up the market.

    Most consumers aren't using wireless charging and even less look for a Quad DAC. A good majority of people buy a brand because it's popular and based on cosmetics.
    Let's say for arguments sake they did make a phone that could beat Samsung. That would mean they would have upscale production overnight and that's not usually feasible. In today's volatile market you have tread carefully.
    All that put aside I'm glad my V20 has the Quad DAC and 64gb. I don't need wireless charging even though at one time I was a big fan.
