Weekly poll results: LG G6 shines bright in fans’ eyes

Voters in our weekly poll showed strong interest in the LG G6, now it’s up to LG to turn the hype and early launch into sales. T-Mobile already started shipping pre-ordered units and an unlocked US version is on the way. It’s already on sale in Malaysia and coming soon to Canada. Europe will have to wait until late April.

Many commenters were quite happy with the performance of the G6 and so were we. Some brought up the fact that the 2017 flagship uses some 2016 components, but LG will not be alone in this while certain components are in short supply (notably the Snapdragon 835).

We’ve been spending quality time with the Huawei P10 Plus lately. Ever since it arrived at the office excitement has been in the air.

Just like its little sibling, the P10 Plus is a looker and simply has a way of luring you in. It also ties in together well and the visual overhaul of EMUI seems to be a natural extension of said effort on the software side of things. We definitely like this new refined…

The Xiaomi Mi 6 might have a bigger Plus variant: full specs sheets leak online

The Xiaomi Mi 6 has been frequenting the rumor mill for quite some time now, but this is only the second time we are hearing of a Plus variant. It popped up in a new specs sheet leak, with at least one pretty interesting features to its name – a dual-camera setup.

The specs summary also mentions a 5.7-inch display, putting the alleged Mi 6 Plus squarely in phablet territory. However, despite growing in size, the panel sticks with 1080p resolution – definitely the more endurance-friendly option, if nothing else.
