    I've got a pretty good deal on a new lg g6 locally. I've seen the phone in the store and it does look beautiful and exactly the same.size as.my Lumia 950 but with thin bezels it's a lot bigger screen.

    But i don't like android that much. Every android phone i bought ended up returning coz of ugly android.

    I've one main issue with Lumia 950 - the Fitbit app has no notification. I've enrolled into the beta testing of Fitbit app and it hardly works. Syncing itself is a big issue. Other than that i quite like my Lumia.

    Plus i also need the glance screen with weather display etc which isn't the same on g6 's always on display. It displays clock a d some notification. But no weather.

    Should i buy the g6 or keep my beloved Lumia??

    Ooh that's hard.

    Maybe try listing everything that can be a pro or con for both? You are considering trying it so that would be worth the time.

    FWIW, my Android-loving older son just went in on a V20 to replace his POS S7, which replaced his time-bomb S6. The G6 just want as nice in our opinion.

    Glance, double tap to wake/sleep
    Simple and easy OS interface

    Cons
    Lack of apps - mainly Fitbit notifications
    Windows OS updates are not straight forward

    LG G6 Pro's
    Elegant design
    Large screen and smaller overall size
    Top of the line specs
    Price of the device I'm getting

    CONS
    Android UI - Ugly and cumbersome

    That's a great list.

    If the notifications are really bothering you, I would suggest trying the G6. You should be able to sell it off fairly easily.

    I don't think you will find the camera lacking compared to your 950, and in some ways better (speed being the biggest thing). Not having the physical button takes some getting used to, but you should be able to double tap the power button to quick launch the camera, at least on the Pixel I could.

    Wouldn't bluemail cover this?

    Camera/pic quality isn't that bad when compared to the 950.. Based on pictures I've seen lol

    You can always add launchers to make the UI less clunky
