So, how does it compare to it's competition in the "plus" category, the Samsung Galaxy S8+ and the iPhone 7 Plus.

The LG G6 and G6 Plus are built for entertainment. The FullVision™ display is very impressive. They have managed to pack a 5.7" QHD+ display into a 148.8 x 72.3mm body.

It also supports Dolby™ Vision, and is the first handset ever to do so. This means that HDR content will look as great as it was intended. It also supports the more widely adopted HDR10, too.

The screen has a ratio of 18:9 and a resolution of 1440 x 2880. As most games and apps are 16:9 ratio, the G6 scales everything to fit and look great to make the most of the screens capabilities. All of this is customizable too, so if you want an app at a certain aspect ratio, you can have it.
