With a more mainstream and sleek design, the G6 is LG's follow-up to last year's modular-like G5. Sporting a 5.7-inch display, water resistance and two cameras, the phone is LG's most widely appealing flagship. Unlike the G5, the G6 is decidedly not modular. It features a 5.7-inch 2,880x1,440-pixel display (565 pixels per inch). Most smartphone displays have a 16:9 aspect ratio (like a TV), but the LG G6 has a wider 18:9 ratio.
