Pocketnow Weekly 248: the LG G6 sucks, but kinda only in this one aspect

Sat Apr 15 2017 (01:54:30)

Our LG G6 Review Rebuttal has stirred up a little brouhaha and is getting us into a discussion about what our Real Camera Review lacks. Because controversy is a strange bedfellow to sit beside. But not as weird as... the King. We circle around LG, dance with watches, laugh at the "liquidmorphium" phone (again) and circle around... Samsung... hey, wait!

Travis ponders how to get his thumb from here to there while Andrew (yes, that Andrew) is wondering about Samsung entering into a new age of gimmickery. We didn't mention it in the show, but we wanted to include Renato's thoughts following last week's discussion on how the Galaxy S8 handles its battery.
