It’s been a couple of years since LG’s flagship phones have truly wowed. The LG G6, however, is a return to form and a cell phone screen replacement that’s ready to compete with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and iPhone 7.

Having beaten the S8 to the punch, the LG G6 has adopted a stunning new 18:9 aspect ratio display, stretched beautifully across the handset’s 5.7-inch form. This near edge-to-edge QHD+ display is just the tip of the phone’s feature-rich iceberg too.

Powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 chipset, 4GB of RAM and a skinned version of Google’s latest Android 7.0 Nougat operating system, the LG G6 is finished with dual 13MP rear-mounted cameras and a sizeable 3,300mAh battery.

The LG G6 is a device that’s deeper than its core features though. Scratch beneath the surface and there are a wealth of device-improving features and functions just waiting to be discovered.

There’s no need to go stumbling through the lengthy settings menus trying to separate the good from the ‘why’s that even there?’ though. We’ve done the leg work for you, unearthing this lot, the LG G6 tips and tricks you need to try to get the most from your new handset. Go on, what are you waiting for?

1. Rearrange your soft keys

Everyone likes to use their phone in different ways, whether that’s by giving prime app-shelf billing to the camera over the music player, or favoring folders over excessive home screen clutter. One of the main points of differentiation from user to user, however, is how people like their soft keys laid out.

For every person who prefers the back button on the left and the recents tab on the right, there’s someone else who would rather things were the other way around. With the LG G6 you can have things whichever way you want, you can even create your own custom button layout.

To tweak your own home button setup, you need to point your phone in the direction of Settings > Display > Home touch buttons > Button combination, and customize away.

2. Split your keyboard in two for speedy typing

Since touchscreen smartphones replaced handsets with physical QWERTY keyboards, on-device typing experiences have become less intuitive, more time consuming and liable to an increased number of typos and mistakes.

The G6, however, lets you tweak your digital keyboard for more streamlined, speedy typing.

One of the ways you can achieve this is by splitting the keyboard in half. Literally. Activated by selecting the settings cog within the keyboard itself, once enabled, when typing in landscape mode, pinching out with two fingers will split the keyboard in two, placing half the keys on the left side of the screen and the other half on the right. Speedy message replies are go.

3. Get cheesy with your photo efforts

With dual 13MP cameras on the rear and a 5MP selfie snapper up front, the LG G6 isn’t exactly short on imaging options. Beyond the usual mass of filters, effects and shooting modes, there’s a unique feature that can’t help but raise a photo-friendly smile - the ability to capture a photo simply by saying ‘cheese’.

Within the camera app, hitting the settings cog will bring up a range of customization options. Here you’ll be able to turn on the ‘Cheese shutter’.

It’s not just “Cheese” that can act as a vocal-based camera trigger either. You can also bellow “Smile”, or, randomly, ‘Whiskey”, “Kimchi”, and even “LG” to capture a snap without pressing a button.

4. Spin yourself in circles

If you’re one of the many that have filled your cellphone replacement parts with hundreds of apps spread out across a good half dozen or so home screens, getting to and from the screens you need to be on can be a long, swipe-heavy experience.

There’s a way to speed things up though, instead of having your home screens set up as a line of static windows, you can tie them all together and let yourself loop back around to the start after the final panel.


Creating a continuous circle of home screen swiping, this time saving addition can be enabled by heading to Settings > Display > Home screen > Continuous loop and flicking the toggle switch to the ‘On’ position.
