With Mobile World Congress around the corner, many of the hottest phones new flagships from Samsung, Sony, Huawei, LG and others are about to get announced.
Evan Blass (evleaks) on twitter tweeted a smashing teaser on the LG G6, as below.
I intend to give the LG G6 the same treatment as I have done for the LG G3, LG G4 and LG G5. What treatment was that you ask? My LG G5 review ended up being featured on LG’s main website too.

I have already reviewed the official LG Premium Hard case in Tan https://gavinsgadgets.wordpress.com/2014/07/22/lg-g3-premium-hard-case-in-tan-review/ for the LG G3, but now lets have a look at the QuickCircle case.
First be careful when you order this case. There are different versions. First make sure you get the version for the G3 D855 and not the G3 F400. The F400 is the Korean model which has different positioning for the Qi charging pins and a cutout for the TV antenna.
The version I am reviewing actually replaces the back cover and has the Qi charging pins. This is the better version as it offers the slimmest design as the G3 back cover is removed before fitting this case.
First up this case fits like a glove, is slightly larger than without a case, but is also super cool. With a range of clocks which look smashing through the circular cutout, you also get access to the notifications icons. Sliding across the clock reveals the apps chosen to be displayed. So you can take a photo which is full screen unlike the Note 3. The “circle” is activated by either pressing the rear power button or double tapping in the “circle” area. You can double tap to turn off too.
All the clock faces look classy.
The rear of the case looks nearly identical to the original back cover.
The only difference is on the top and bottom edges.
In terms of operation, it is very easy to use and offers a cool factor too. You can take a call with the cover closed and you can still see the notification led. This case works fine with the LG Qi Wireless charger. There is even a game for the QuickCircle window and other apps are arriving all the time.
So far this in my favourite case for the LG G3. I still have the Slim Guard case to review.
I’ve been really busy so not had as much time yet to spend with the G3 as I would have wanted.
My thoughts so far. 32gb storage available on my phone is bliss. I have endless space.
The camera. So far it’s been ace. Lots of indoor shots with people and really smashing results. Outdoor shots are equally good. Even low light. I still want more time with the camera though to give my final verdict.
The feel and software. The LG feels different to everything I’ve used in a long while. Consequently, I need to experience it’s character for longer to come to any conclusions. But I’m liking the experience more than the Samsung Touchwiz.
My main dilemma is still would I chose the G3 over the Samsung Galaxy K Zoom. Answer. No comment.
