    I've a good deal on a new lg g6 here locally and I went to a store and played with the black G6 . The design is beautiful and eye candy.

    But I'm a big Windows Mobile fan and currently use the Lumia 950 and quite happy with it. But I want a newer device and there isn't any new Windows phones available.

    Here are my pros and cons

    Lumia 950 Pro's
    Windows UI
    Size and feel in hand
    Camera - best in class, nothing comes close including Samsung and iPhone
    Glance, double tap to wake/sleep
    Simple and easy OS interface

    Cons
    Lack of apps - mainly Fitbit notifications
    Windows OS updates are not straight forward

    LG G6 Pro's
    Elegant design
    Large screen and smaller overall size
    Top of the line specs
    Price of the device I'm getting

    CONS
    Android UI - Ugly and cumbersome
    Lack of glance with weather on lock screen (Lumia screenshot attached)
    Lack of physical camera button
    Lack of an email client for all type of accounts in one place - including iCloud

    Should i bite the bullet and get a G6?

    All your cons for the G6 can be changed. There are quite a few email clients that have all inclusive..

    Also, the volume down button is the shutter button for the camera.

    If you don't like Android UI, you can download a launcher.. There are few windows inspired launchers.

    Agreed
    I do have a s6 edge which i never use - sitting in my drawer. I've searched all the time for an email client that can do both email and calendar integration for all accounts including iCloud..nothing is like outlook

    I can still live with that if android has a launcher similar to Windows. Squarehome2 resembles something like Windows but no live tiles.

    If Microsoft makes a launcher with live tiles ill buy the g6 right away.

    Buy the G6. I just came over from Windows Mobile. Microsoft is pretty much out of the phone business. It was tough for me to leave as I really liked the interface on Windows Mobile but the lack of support and MS not having a clear idea of what they are doing in mobile left me no choice. You'll the G6.

    How do you like the camera on g6? Is it comparable to Lumia 950?

    Thanks for that tip Jeremiah. I didn't know that and was having trouble with the on screen shutter button.

    I never thought of the windows UI as a pro. I guess that's why we are all different.

    Try the G6 for 2 weeks. You won't return it.

    Friend of mine had one.... Not impressed. I also tried a Windows launcher for Android.... I know that's not the same but I couldn't deal with it.

    Looks like someone has no clue about Android. Weather in lock screen? Damn I can get an entire forecast on my lock screen.

    And don't even get me started on the boring tile UI.

    Not on lock screen. It's called glance in Windows. It's the always on screen in android.
