How Easily Does The LG G6 Scratch? You’d Be Surprised

by Habeeb Onawole 4

The LG G6 was launched a few days ago and so far, its been getting lots of positive reviews. It has been praised for its unique display and impressive camera. It has also gotten positive comments for its new design which features a mixture of metal and glass.


LG has disclosed the price of the G6 and says it will cost 899,800 Korean Won (roughly $800). If you are going to be churning out that kind of cash, you’ll want to find out how well made the phone is and if it can survive everyday handling.

A group of guys in a bar are saving you the hassle of finding out yourself if the LG G6 is scratch resistant and have made a video of their torture test. Using a small knife, markings are made on the back of the LG G6 and the result is amazing. The phone doesn’t scratch at all!!

Yes, the LG G6 doesn’t have a single scratch. The reason for that is not far-fetched. LG says the rear glass is Corning Gorilla Glass 5! The rear cameras are covered with Gorilla Glass 4 and the display features Gorilla Glass 3. That’s pretty impressive. So worry not, your phone should survive scratches from keys and should even survive bites from your toddler. You also shouldn’t worry about him/her drooling over it as the LG G6 is waterproof.

      Display is something users usually protect. Either with a screen guard or even otherwise Dispaly is not set down on keys on harsh surface. Its the back that has to face such surfaces hence the GG 5 on back. Offcourse it is saving money but who can blame them.

      • I can understand it if they planned to release it at a $600 price point, but at $800 it will be competing with the new Sony phones, which DO have GG 5 on both sides.

          Fair point on the pricing there. I agree!
