    I was curious if anyone is considering the G6 over the s8 or S8 Plus due to the price increases. If lets say the S8 Plus is over $900 will you consider the G6 over the Galaxy? It looks tempting especially since the rumored price is pretty good.

    I already ordered the G6 through Verizon and will be here on the 30th. $200 cheaper than the S8. I will give it a 14 day test drive. If I like it, I will keep it and not get the S8. I done being worked over by the phone makers. Every year, their flagship gets closer to $1000. I'm done paying that much for a smartphone.

    I see that the VZW G6 supports wireless charging, but I can't find anywhere if it supports Fast wireless charging. Any idea?

    I don't plan on getting an S8, I don't like curved screens. But I have less than zero interest in the G6. The USA version of the G6 to me looks like a 2016 phone released in 2017. The reviews praise it, but when you read them the bottom line seems to say it's an ok phone. I personally think at the current price vs features it is over priced. I have no doubt that by summer the G6 will be available for big discounts.

    Hopefully by summer LG will release the Korean features in a USA model.

    Leaning towards G6 due to price and dual cameras. You'd be surprised by how often you'll use the wide angle camera. S8 doesn't look that impressive, might as well get an S7 Edge.

    Ironically people said the same thing about the S7 Edge last year and were DEAD WRONG

    I guess we can all see things differently. I see nothing including the price attractive about the G6. The S8 looks very impressive to me, a true 2017 flagship phone. I just don't like the curved screen.

    Personally I would (and might) buy the V20 over the G6. Way more impressive phone to me.

    I am weighing it. I have an S7 that I've had in a drawer for a bit, but started using again after selling my V20 (waaaay too big) to possibly buy the G6. Funny thing is, I love this S7. I like what the G6 looks like and I really like LGs UI, but I am hesitating. The S7 is solid and the S8 looks cool, so I am going to wait.

    Yeah, the G6 is a legit contender. But I'd caution fence sitters to at least wait till the 29th before making a decision. The G6 isn't going anywhere

    If the G6 had at least 64 gigs of storage memory, I would be all over it.

    G6 at least in Europe has awful features and price, they took away the good stuff and gave you an OK phone for flagship price, V20 is better than G6 in terms of value per money...

    Wouldn't buy G6 over S7E and of course not over S8, but as for the moment i have Mate 9 so idc about S8 or G6

    Agreed. Not sure why anyone would make a decision before the S8 is even announced.
    The leaks don't mention any of the updated software features.
    Secondly, to answer the OP's question...of course some people will consider the G6 over the S8. It's called choices, and just be lucky Android has lots to choose from. Everyone's tastes are different. There is no one perfect phone for everyone.
    If you value wide angle pictures and a flat screen, you might lean towards the G6.

    That ridiculous 3300 mah battery is still higher than the rumored 3000 mah battery in the S8 and just under the 3500 battery in the S8+... and to put in better perspective... the S7 Edge has a 3600 mah battery with a smaller screen than the + it's being replaced with.

    As far as features A has but not B even if subtle... Samsung did that last year too... their European S7 with Exynos has DAC built into processor while the SD820 does not. I haven't read whether the 835 S8 will have a hifi DAC.

    With that said I'm still waiting for press release and some reviews to see... battery is extremely important to me. If they go a step back and it is another S6 in terms of battery... no way then.

    If I get the G6 over either of the S8s, it'll be because of price; however, I like the features the S8s may come with this year, such as the iris scanner, the facial recognition, and the rear fingerprint sensor (despite the placement).

    I'm going to wait until the 29th (10 days!) before I make a decision.

    The Iris scanner I wasn't a huge fan of on my Note 7. I wear contacts which it would work, but if I didn't have my contacts in it didn't work plus it seemed to take longer unlocking it that way.

    The main reason I want the S8 Plus is for the AMOLED display and big screen. I prefer flat screen so hence why G6 might be a cheaper option.

    I prefer the IPS LCD displays. They don't have burn-in problems like the AMOLED screens.

    LG phones traditionally have poor battery life.

    My previous Note 7 can last longer than my LG G4 main + replacement battery combined.

    Now that G6 no longer has removable battery, do consider carefully

    My first LG was the G2... one of the best batteries I've ever had. Early tests don't say great... but say good... just better than V20 life. Looking forward to more tests with final product.

    I think I'll just wait and see what samsung really brings to the table. Don't want to rely on the leaks only and want to see some real life performance before I consider such a thing.

    What if the S8 has the battery life of a S6? The 300mah/3500mah battery sizes is my main concern and will be waiting on reviews. Guessing they will have 1080 mode like the Note 7 had to help.

    Yes but it's not going to stop me from getting the S8. LOL

    There has been no press release yet for the S8 line and people making choices already? WOW. The battery life is important and very much so to me but i think it is better to wait till they have there event and release the details and see. Everyone is talking like this is all 100% when it is not till they have there event and i am sure they will talk about battery life.

    Battery life on my S6 edge plus is eh and i expect it should be better on a S8 so lets kinda wait till they release the specs and talk about it and the reviews which will all happen way before the release date.
