LG has delivered yet another flagship phone this year, the LG G6. Launched at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, the LG G6 sports a new killer design and innovative features.

The new LG G6 has a full metal glass build and a sleek design. Showcasing a mighty 5.7-inch display that delivers amazing visuals together with a Dolby Vision support, the LG G6 is clearly a must-have for media lovers. However, people were drawn to one more issue here, the battery life.

Since the battery issue of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 happened, smartphone manufacturers and consumers became more cautious about the battery that they install on their devices. As a trusted electronics company, LG Electronics makes sure that their batteries are safe and durable.

A report from Digital Trends says that LG Electronics conducts a series of tests to ensure that their batteries are safe. They have conducted these tests to their latest flagship phone, the LG G6. The tests include a dropping of a 9klg weight two feet above the battery to see if it will explode or catch fire.

Another weird test that LG has made with the LG G6's battery is piercing a metal nail through its body. This meant to simulate the possibilities of what could happen if the phone is accidentally bitten by the owner's pet.

The LG G6 smartphone passed a total of 14 tests which include temperature, humidity, vibration and solar radiation. LG's newest flagship phone also earned an "MIL-STD 810G" certificate from Maryland Electrical Testing.

In terms of battery life, The LG G6 is powered by a 3,300mAh battery. The LG G6 can last an average of 22:30hrs of 3G talk time, 8:31hrs of web browsing and 10:27hrs of video playback according to GSM Arena. However, the battery life still depends on your usage.
