The LG G6 was launched at the mobile world congress this year and it became a really big hit this month. It is one of the unique smartphone out there due to the small bezels it has plus what really makes it stand out is the 18:9 aspect ratio screen. Having spent some hours with the gadget and noted a few of its reviews online, we recognize some cool features it has that you would rarely find on other phones. Here is some cool tips and tricks you might not know your LG G6 has.
5. Smart Lock
When it comes to smartphones, Security is key, and having spent a couple of dollars with this high end flagship, it would be quite a risk letting it go. With smart lock you don’t have to enter your password or PIN every two minute your phone locks. You can configure trusted places or gadgets, For instance when you’re connected to your home Wi-Fi, your phone gets unlocked automatically. On-body detection keeps your phone unlocked so long as you have it, though it does not work as perfect as you may think. This feature can be found under Settings > Lock screen.
4. Smart Cleaning
Smart cleaning is probably not that new, however LG decided to include it in the G6 incase you encounter any storage issues, battery drain or poor performance of the device. It will help you manage your files properly, keep you on check on which apps are draining your juice too much or any unnecessary files on your device and also do a test on the G6 hardware to fix any performance issue. To find this feature, locate it under, Settings > General > Smart cleaning.
This is really efficient for time saving. It is used to set-up various shortcuts that performs automatically when triggered by an event. For instance, you could have your music play from Spotify or google play music app automatically once you plug in your headphones. It could be even be an event like connecting to Wi-Fi or connect to a Bluetooth device or turn data network on when you leave your home location. This setting can be found under Settings > General > Smart settings.
2. Camera Roll
Camera roll is a unique feature only found on the G6 currently. The reason to that would be because of the 18:9 aspect ratio. With this screen ratio, there is a space left on the top of the G6, which LG decided to use it as a camera picture roll. It previews pictures that you had taken earlier with your camera,sounds really handy but it can also be taken off if you don’t like it. You simply tap the camera settings toggle and tap Camera roll off.
1. Square Capture
This new screen ratio means a lot to the G6. 18:9 aspect ratio also means 2:1 aspect ratio, which means you can form two perfect squares with this device something that could not be achieved with other phones. This is a nice thing when it comes to screen split view. LG has also perfected their game by including a special square camera option. With other phones this could only be done with third-party apps thanks to the new G6. The view finder is normally shown at the top while the snaps you just took are right at the bottom square. For instance one can take two shots using the front and back camera at the same time. Sound amazing right? It also accompanies a feature called guide shot that helps you frame your snap in the perfect match that you prefer.
