Six Reasons Why LG G6 is my new Favorite Travel Gadget
I have just found my new favorite travel gadget — the LG’s current flagship phone, the LG G6. The G6 comes packed with new sleek aesthetics, featuring impressively smooth and uncomplicated features. Such features are undeniably perfect for traveling.
Here are some of the features I like about this smartphone. Read on.
I can now enjoy a long road trip without worrying about my smartphone battery. LG G6 features a sizable non-removable battery. The 3,300 mAh battery will retain charge for a remarkable amount of time. When compared with other phones, the LG G6 comes with a longer battery life. This means that you will have more time to take photos or even stream online videos while you are on your trip. Other noteworthy features include wireless charging and the short time it takes for the battery to charge. Like most modern smartphones, the G6 supports conventional wireless charging standards. This means one can always use their phone without worrying about charge, as there’s a wireless charging pad near them.
The G6 is dust and water resistant
Planning to do a 4×4 ride at the dusty Paoay sand dunes? How about white water rafting adventure in Chico River? Worry no more, this phone will do just fine under five feet of water for about half an hour. It is IP68 certified, which means you can use the device even under the rain and underwater. Besides being resistant to water, this phone is also dust resistant, so one needs not worry about wiping the screen every several hours for a clearer display. What’s even better, the phone is designed to survive everyday drops.
Its cameras allow a wide angle
LG G6 features high-quality dual lenses on the phone’s back. To allow the user to capture more images, for example during their travels, both cameras allow a wide angle. This is perfect for those who like to take selfies, groufies or landscape shots during their trip. The camera extras that come with the phone are also impressive. The camera has a square mode, making it easier for those who are fond of Instagram.
It has a new 360 Panorama Mode
What makes the phone even sweeter, especially to travel enthusiasts, is that its Mode icon now comes with a new 360 Panorama mode, allowing a full wraparound shots of the surroundings. You will have the option to view these photos as flattened images, 360 degrees by swiping the phone’s screen or moving the smartphone, or by using a VR headset.
It has a Square Camera app and Food Mode
If you are obsessed with Instagram just like me, I have a good news for you: LG’s camera includes a Square Camera app that you can use to take Instagram-ready images. You can even get more artistic by clicking Mode. Now, if you are a self-confessed foodie traveler, another nifty feature that the smartphone has is the Food Mode. LG G6 camera automatically captures “high color quality and saturation” so that images of food look more appealing. Let your friends drool over Bangkok’s best, for example, using LG G6’s food mode.
The G6 is a top performer
This smartphone is a definite looker, but that is not where it ends. To sweeten the pot, the phone comes equipped with a high-performance Snapdragon 821 quad-core processor for top speed and quality. The processor is paired with 4 GB RAM. The LG G6, therefore, easily and comfortably handles everything you throw at it, from simple pictures to games that contain the most intensive graphics. The phone features either 32 GB or 64 GB storage, depending on the region. The phone has an expandable storage of up to a whopping 2 TB (definitely good news to those who are fond of capturing videos of their trips). This is a notable improvement compared to the chip that the LG G5 used. The phone comes equipped with a Hi-Fi quad DAC to support superior quality audio reproduction.
In any case, LG is once again on a roll with the release of this hot travel and photography gadget on the market.
