The LG G6 comes with a 5.7-inch 2880x1440 resolution FullVision display, and for the first time in a smartphone - an 18:9 screen aspect ratio. This means that the G6 offers more viewing space and a more immersive experience when streaming videos and playing games. But even with the large screen, the phone is easy to hold, and you can easily use it with one hand.
