Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best phone I need another one best phone I ever had I last a year with it but I broke it so if u can keep making more
Date published: 2020-07-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable I have had this phone since Aug 2017! and it's still going strong considering I play a lot of games and take video/pics. I put it in a Supcase and with it MILSPEC drop rating, this thing has had no problems. I keep waiting for the day this phone finally gives up so I can get a new one, but it won't let me. The only thing I have had to do is replace the camera glass. the original one scratched easily and the one I got on Amazon seems to be much more durable. Part of me wants the phone to last 3yrs as kind of a bench mark.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still worth it! This was a great phone back in the day that I was obsessed about (still am). It still holds up pretty well in 2020. Worth it!

I don't want a bluetooth headset. I just want to be able to plug a headset into my phone, put the phone in my shirt pocket and the headset on my head, and start talking. Do you offer any wired headsets for the LG G6?
