LG G6

92/100
Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, have you reached a verdict? Your Honor, we most certainly have. In the case of the LG G6, we hereby find the smartphone… fantastic! As I said before, you can’t even compare the G6 to last year’s G5. It’s as if they were made by two entirely different companies. From the in-hand feel to the ability to customize LG’s ugly theme, the G6 is a real winner in my book.

LG G4

85/100
In terms of general build design, the LG G4 is exceptional. Like the G3, its large 5.5 inch screen makes little impact on the overall size of the device thanks to super-thin bezels. As a measure for comparison, the iPhone 6 Plus has the same-sized screen (with a lower resolution), but the G4 is almost a full 1cm shorter from bottom to top.

Features

  • 5.5 inch display
  • Android
  • 16MP camera

Motorola Moto Z

80/100
The Moto Z is a brilliant execution of an average idea. Through its Moto Mods system, Motorola has turned the idea of a modular smartphone where you can add and remove features on the fly into a simple, easy-to-use feature set. The problem is they're fun, but not necessary.

Features

  • 5.5 inch display
  • Android
  • 13MP camera
  • 32GB int. memory (useable capacity will be less)
