Sorry mate, except the ‘2017 looks’ nothing is good with the phone, My brother has it, I’m rocking with Mi5 and I’m happy!

Rudy says:

or you can get an lg g6 on ebay for 300

Filiterless Gaming says:

no offense but when the Indian dude makes the video, I click off immediately, doesn’t feel like the same quality as Dmitry, idk maybe because I’m a long time viewer and I’m just so comfortable hearing his voice and his presentations. I think the indian dude is a pretty cool guy though, just not when he makes videos for Dmitry.

Simon Fuller says:

honor 7x leaves this dead in the water.. My G6 is still on 7.0 with the last security update way back in July. Fuck LG and its poor support and updates.

decent puppet says:

SD435 for $300..
Retarded LG

ricky v says:

This is a good video. The highest end products are not always needed. I read an article a few months ago where, Jerry Jones stated he still uses an AT&T flip phone! This is of course always subjective. A person may need the features of the latest and greatest device.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

P.S. How do I spell your name? Ebert?

Parsa Strife says:

It’s awful. It has plastic cover for the fucking camera. Just bullshit.

David Alejandro Rubio Escares says:

The CPU is a 400 series. Stay away, it’s not worth for the price.

Maxim Au says:

What if i told you where i live, i can buy a brand new g5 for under 200 dollars, and a g6 under 300…

Lincoln Thurber says:

The speaker is what kills it for me, and I guess type C connector would have been nice too. The camera I could live with, I guess I’d been editing the photos a bit more to get reasonable shots.

Dario Jgnkovic says:


Huh Huh says:

don’t lie i heard of lg q6 and q6+

Allan Davidson says:

Budget? $300? You’re kidding, right?

In the US you can get a Z Max PRO or a Z Blade for $99 at MetroPCS, and these are 1 year old deals.

wikudo says:

OH SHIT!! The old HWC vibes come back!!!!! Love you Eber! You lovely bastard!!

Thế Hoàng Nguyễn says:

You talk about software update for a “budget midrange” phone? Boy don’t be delusional. It’s not happening.

Swamp Fox says:

elephone s8 !

BAXdinos says:

300 dollars and it has a Snapdragon 435???? what the actual fuck???

AvGo q says:

xiaomi better XD

Dario Jgnkovic says:


blyat says:

would be great if it had a fingerprint sensor

Muballig Dalvi says:

This has to be your worst video! We have certainly come to expect better from you!

Robert Drake says:

The phone is $449!!! What’z with the $299 you’re stating? Why do you guys bother calling yourselves “Hardware Canucks” when you’re targeting a US audience????

Daniel115XD says:

The Xiaomi Redmi note 4 is better for the same price.

Charg says:

Get the Xiaomi Mi a1. It gets updates immediately and has a better build quality. It even has a fingerprint sensor and snapdragon 625 and 4gb ram. U can buy it at AliExpress for 220 bucks.

SleeperXs says:

My Moto G5 plus is budget this is a liitle bit too much for that Hardware

Saddam Fazal says:

435 poor processor choice. better options available in this budget also no fingerprint scanner. so its nt the best budget phone

SRAVAN S says:

The classic music !

Echiiru says:

im glad xiaomi exist top ARM that samsung s8 is using for only sub 200$

Ennis says:

The pricing made it look really bad. In europe q6 is available at 209 euros on every store

Wistbacka says:

Jesus christ we are lost as a race… When we consider 300 dollars to be good value for mediocre performance. We’ve really lost track of cost-to-performance. The fact that people gladly pay 800 dollars for phones these days is mind-boggling. I have the LG G6, and is imo the best phone there is of its generation; not best in any specific field, but best as the overall phone – a jack of all traits.

But paying more than 500 dollars for it would be stupid. No phone is worth that. I paid a bit under 400 dollars brand new for mine (Imported from Hong Kong and it is a legit copy; have verified that) and that is the perfect price for a device like this.

SRAVAN S says:

ITS 200$ in india and about 300$ for the + version !

Novran Alfarizi says:

Support fast charging? Buy a new charger? Is it okay for the phone?

Nicholas No More says:

I also have mixed feelings about you and the channel Heebra.
While reviewing any device, be more considerate of your subs that may not share all your opinions, and even though you are free to express them, be less graphic about it.
“while navigating through that …horrible UI” . –
Come on man, I love LG’s UI, its why i ve stuck with LG for the last 4 years and why i ve recommended it to 4 family members, all happy with their LGs. Lack of a UI and pure android trend bullshit is why I got rid of my one and only nexus device, and why I will not get a nokia device even though I ve been a nokia fanboy for the last 21 years.

queenform says:

get a Xiaomi Mi A1 instead
that’s an Android One device

Elise Wouters says:

Identity comprehensive top parent golden return infection genuine credibility expert.

SRAVAN S says:

Its one of the best phone in USA for the money but in the country it was released [ india ] there are cheap phones made out of paper !

ConsumerDV says:

For $300 the video it shoots looks quite crappy. Correction: even for a $20 smartphone this video would be barely passable. Low resolution + oversharpening + fast shutter speed + jerky stabilization + muddy colors…
