The new LG G6 smartphone has a feature no other phone maker can match:

Breathtaking super-wide 13 megapixel photos, part of its unique dual camera design using a standard 71 degree view f1.8 normal optical image stabilization (OIS) lens and a unique zoomable f2.4 software stabilized 125 degree view lens, also 13 MP.  Its wide view coverage can be zoomed to where the standard lens takes over. The front 5MP f2.2 selfie also offers a 100 degree wide view.

I found you can also get extra high quality selfies by turning the phone backwards, with the 13 MP super wide 125 degree camera facing you, shooting blind. You will be surprised how you can still get well composed wide selfies using the timer setting.

By narrowing the bezel, and introducing a 18:9 ratio screen, the G6 is easily managable with one hand. It has an all-around Gorilla glass outer shell and metal frame design for fast wireless charging of its 3,300 mAh sealed and proven “nailproof tough” battery.

Breathtaking wide views from the Mourish Castle in Sintra bring back the feeling of still being there.

The new 18:9 screen ratio allows for cool dual screen view like live camera view on the left and editing mode on the right. It’s also ready for the new 2:1 widescreen movie ratio, first adopted by Netflix.

The G6 walks the walk as a camera phone that get’s the shot in the smallest of spaces…or wide scenics. Check out G6 photos in Portugal and soon Spain where I am currently travelling in.
