    Been using my S8+ since I pre-ordered it from Samsung. I was on VZW, but with all the surcharges, taxes and line access fees I made the switch to TMO. I decided that I liked the flat glass and solid build of the G6 over the curved display on the S8+. I think software wise the S8 is better but I really feel more happy and comfortable with my G6.

    The G6 is definitely the more comfortable of the 2 and quite honestly I prefer the camera on the G6 more. You cant go wrong with either but even as I sit here with my S8 in hand and G6 at home, I still give the edge to the G6 in alot of areas.

    I am typing this on my 8+ and watching for UPS to deliver my G6. I find my S8+ ackward to handle at times, especially with one hand. I am really anxious to try out the G6's flat screen and tad smaller footprint.

    The G6 is solid, in both performance and quality. FPS placement is perfect and now that I have it on the G6, I wouldn't want it on the front ever again. (Even if its under the glass on future Galaxy devices)

    Ah ok. Enjoy your new piece of tech. :-)

    Besides the flat screen, what's your favorite thing about it so far.

    I like the camera better. Wind angle is life.

    It's amazing right? I guess no one really knows until they tried it.

    The G6 is a solid phone, but I had the S8+ and switched to an S8 and the experience is so much better because the device is smaller. I love it.

    Agreed that the S8 is the better more ergonomic device. I love it and I'm happy I didn't go with the plus. I loved my G6 and miss it, but the S8 is amazing.

    Nope, because it lacks a display that has a high refresh rate and low persistence.

    Basically a modern AMOLED panel.

    I'm late to the thread but i just did the same as Op (switched from s8+ to g6) i feel software wise the g6 Ui is smoother overall their skin feels less power hungry.Also it seems to me the .5 of difference in the ratio between the g6 and the s8 shows alot after switching,i feel like the g6 is more square feeling overall which i actually like tbh.

    I love the in hand feel of the S8. It's light weight and the curved edges feel really nice but functionally it's just not for me.

    I like that the G6 doesn't feel like a compromise. It feels equally impressive (wouldn't mind if it were a bit lighter).

    I chose the G6 and would again. I think it's as smooth as any other phone out there. I do admit I wish it would have got the 835.

    Can't lie i wish it had the 835 too but still a very smooth phone with a 821 chip. Also i kinda like the weight of the g6 makes it feel like less of a fragile thing imho,though i do agree the naked feel of the s8 was VERY nice :P

    I don't notice e a performance difference between either chipset. but the 835 is so much better at power management.

    Although i agree which is normal since the 835 is newer how it's used on the s8 imho dosen't feel like good management from samsung,i really feel like they simply hoarded the 835 just for bragging rights over other flagships (ie the g6). Fact is i've seen people on the s8 forums cry over some in here (g6 forums) because some are bashing the s8 which tbh feels like they deserve it. So many threads there about all kinds of issues where's as here there's barely any threads most i see are just discussions about stuff and people switching from the s8 to the g6 kinda funny if you ask me.

    No phones are perfect and specs matter less and less every year, just use what fits you the most, i for one will most likely buy another lg if they start using amoled pannels i love the power/finger sensor on the back i always did specially back then with the g3.
