    All right. I had the G6 at launch
    Then, I got lured into the S8, but it had the red tint issue. I set up a return of the S8 and I got another G6 in the interim and said " I love this phone, but I want to give the S8 a try". So, I sold the G6 on Swappa and returned the S8 to the Samsung online store after going to the VZW store and getting one without the tint issue. Now, I'm sniffing around the G6 again. The S8 seems too..... Busy? The curves are nice, but it's delicate, I like Samsung Pay, but the G6 is apparently coming out with LG Pay this summer, it has a great screen but I like the screen of the G6 as well. It's not as harsh. Finally, I can get a G6 for about $200 less and I think it's comparable to the S8 in a lot of ways. Am I crazy or should I stick it out with the S8. I am also a frequent switcher but not between the same phones like this. If I return this S8, I won't go back. Can't justify it.

    Just curious as to why you didn't just keep the G6 to begin with? It's a great phone, but you must have felt something was missing?

    That's a good question. I think because the S8 is a bit sexier. I get suckered by bells and whistles, while in reality, the G6 was great in its own right.

    At the end of the day, bells and whistles aside, they're both top of the line phones. Just get one and go with it. If you're like me, you'll be back in the market with one of the fall flagships anyway. lol

    Back a couple years ago I did the same thing between the LG G4 and the Samsung S6. I thought the same thing about the Samsung being busy and got the G4.

    BUT what happened for me is I got bored with the G4 and then looked with envy at the Samsung phones. Crazy.

    I wouldn't count on LG pay coming anytime soon. It might but even then it'll probably be awhile before banks start getting on board with it. It took Samsung pay awhile to get banks on board.

    I came from a G6 before the s8 plus. I didn't like the G6. I wish the screen was a little brighter. I also think the battery life was horrible. Low light photos were horrible. And to me, the back glass scratches way easier on the G6.

    Using the G6 since 12 days no issues at all infact I have dual sim phone and both Sims active I get around 2 days battery life with around 5 to 6 hrs SOT...

    Is LG pay supposed to work as Samsung does, where it will work anywhere a card slides? I love Samsung pay-only place I've had trouble with it was at a car wash self pay -chincy little slider.

    From what I've read, LG Pay is supposed to work like Samsung pay using MST technology, where you can use it with the Non NFC swipe card registers

    Doesn't matter which phone you settle on you'll always miss something from the other. I switched from the s8 Plus to the G6 last week and I love it. Only things I miss from the Galaxy is the camera in lowlight and One Handed Mode as they're both tall phones. Oh and wireless charging as I'm in the UK but you won't have that issue across the pond. The G6 is an awesome looking phone but the s8 is on another level looks wise.

    It's maybe a case of this in the pic lol

    Just a few videos. They might help you land on the device to stick with.

    Can't help you bro until I know what it means to have a harsh screen.
    You can't help him either way. Noone can tell anyone else what is best for them.

    Agreed. Having a forum for feedback and advice may help.

    I would of kept my G6 but having only 32G is a deal breaker for me. I kinda bought it as a toy to play with until the S8 came out. I was originally gonna keep it along with the S8. It turns out that I really liked the S8 but it seemed too small so I JOD from the G6 to the S8+. Now I have the S8 and S8+ until something better comes along.
