LG announced the G6 during a press conference at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona yesterday. Wondering how it stacks up against last year’s LG G5? There are some big changes. It’s water resistant, for one. It also has a screen that nearly runs edge-to-edge, cutting off some of the bulk on the top and bottom bezels, too.
LG switched things up, though. The LG G6 no longer has a focus on modularity or removable components. Instead, the device is starting to stick to what consumers want, which seems to be gorgeous slates with high-end hardware and some of the latest components on the market.
Here’s a look at how the two phones stack up. Keep in mind we don’t have all of the data on sensors just yet, but most of the information you need is right here.
