When comparing LG G6 vs Razer Phone, the Slant community recommends Razer Phone for most people. In the question“What are the best high-end Android phones?” Razer Phone is ranked 6th while LG G6 is ranked 8th. The most important reason people chose Razer Phone is:
The Razer Phone is equipped with a 120Hz screen, making it the first smartphone to have such a high refresh rate (most current flagships have screens with less than half of that). The high refresh rate makes the experience of actually using the phone extremely smooth; much smoother than even other phones with the same or even slightly better hardware. Scrolling, for example becomes almost an enjoyable experience since you won't be swiping down blurry text or icons but instead they will be crystal-clear.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Can be used comfortably even though it has a relatively large screen
The LG G6 has a 5.7" QHD display, yet its overall size is smaller than the Galaxy S7 Edge, and significantly smaller than the iPhone 7 Plus, both of which have 5.5" screens. This means that you get a bigger display with a more manageable form factor which makes it easy to use even with one hand.
Pro Great screen ratio for multitasking
Like the Galaxy S8, the LG G6 has a taller display than most phones: most have a 16:9 aspect ratio, the S8 has an 18.5:9, and the G6 has an 18:9, or 2:1. This is fantastic for Android's newer multitasking features, as well as just general use. The vast majority of apps support this new display, so you should have no problems with that.
Pro The camera is capable of taking very high-quality pictures
Along with the iPhone 7 Plus and OnePlus 5, the LG G6 sports dual cameras, and does a great job of using them to their full potential.
Pro Light UI
The UI of the G6 isn't completely stock, but unlike many like HTC and Samsung, the interface still feels a lot like stock Android. It still feels unique, and a few nice features are added, but it doesn't depart too far from the Android experience.
Pro Feels smoother than any flagship phone currently on the market
The Razer Phone is equipped with a 120Hz screen, making it the first smartphone to have such a high refresh rate (most current flagships have screens with less than half of that). The high refresh rate makes the experience of actually using the phone extremely smooth; much smoother than even other phones with the same or even slightly better hardware.
Scrolling, for example becomes almost an enjoyable experience since you won't be swiping down blurry text or icons but instead they will be crystal-clear.
Pro The battery can easily last a full day under very heavy use
The 4000mAh battery can last a full day even on full brightness, several hours of gaming, and using the screen at 120Hz.
Pro Produces the highest quality audio out of any smartphone
The two loud speakers on the front produce loud and clear sound. It's widely regarded as the phone with the best audio currently in the market and even rivals most laptops as far as audio goes.
Pro Extremely durable
The body is made of durable anodized aluminium and can certainly take a beating. Even though it might be easier to scratch than some flagships, especially against sharp surfaces, it's extremely hard to bend this phone even when trying.
Pro Extremely good performance
Razer built this phone for people who want to use it primarily for gaming and great gaming performance usually translates to excellent general performance as well. The 8GB of RAM, the Snapdragon 835, and especially the 120Hz display make this phone a joy to use.
Con Weak audio capabilities
Built-in audio is a weak point of this phone; while it does have a headphone jack, the built-in speaker is mediocre so you'll definitely want some earbuds or headphones.
Con Not all features available in all markets
The LG G6 has market exclusives. The American version comes equipped with wireless charging, however other models get a 32-bit high quality DAC.
Con Battery might not last a full day
The G6 has an always-on display even though it's IPS, and this (along with its 3300mAh battery) makes the phone's battery life kinda disappointing.
Con Rounded display
This phone literally cuts corners in that the G6's display isn't completely rectangular.
Con No support for VR
Doesn't have support for neither Gear VR nor Daydream. This is especially disappointing since the Razer Phone is built primarily for gaming.
Con Disappointing camera performance
The camera is not good enough for a $700 phone. Especially in low-lighting conditions, the camera is very disappointing. Blues and greens are too blue and green to the point that pictures seem over-saturated by an Instagram filter. The camera app itself is also very laggy and slow to respond.
Con A bit uncomfortable to carry around because of the large size
The front-facing speakers add a lot of bulk to the already large phone, making it one of the largest smartphones on the market with a size close to the iPhone 8+. Because of this it can be a bit annoying to keep in your pocket.
