You see straight away that the G6 is the Koreans’ new top model. The glass back lends the device a luxury appearance and the sides are in brushed metal. The two camera lenses at the back don’t protrude. It also helps that the screen covers almost all the front of the phone. So the side edges are very thin, barely a few millimeters. There are no buttons at the front, either, so the clean lines remain unspoiled. There is, of course, a fingerprint reader, but it is on the back.
Another striking feature is that the screen has an unorthodox ratio compared with other smartphones: it is somewhat longer and narrower than usual. Most smartphones have a screen ratio of 16 x 9 (like widescreen televisions). With the G6, the ratio is 18 x 9. Which means that although it has a very large screen, it feels slightly smaller than it actually is.
