The phone that has had everyone Qrious, the new LG Q6. Last week, I posted about my unboxing of LG Q6 here on my blog. I’ve been using the LG Q6 for two weeks now and today I decided to make a review of it. The LG Q6 meets the needs and expectations of discerning millennial customers worldwide.
The Q6 is the first model in LG’s new Q series of smartphones and was designed for consumers who want a mobile device that offers the technology of LG’s flagship smartphones at an exceptional price that discerning millennials can appreciate. The Q6 shares DNA with the award-winning G6–the first smartphone to offer LG’s FullVision display. With FullVision, LG is able to offer a large screen in a phone that can still be used comfortably with one hand, making it convenient for Filipino users.
The LG Q6 brings to market Android 7.1.1 Nougat with an 18:9 FullVision display with a resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels at a 442ppi pixel density, in addition to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 SoC. 4GB of RAM is present, while the handset arrives with 32GB of built-in storage. A 13-megapixel primary camera is present with a 5-megapixel selfie snapper, while the Q6 leverages a Micro-USB port and a 3,000mAh battery.
Display and Design
This phone features an expansive 5.5” IPS Full HD + FullVision Display, with a 18:9 full body aspect ratio, which not only offers maximum space, but also allows easy multi-tasking since the screen can be divided into two perfectly square windows that can be viewed either vertically or horizontally. The LG Q6’s metal frame is constructed of 7000 series aluminum – a strong alloy commonly used in the aerospace and marine industries – with rounded corners to dissipate impact energy when dropped, so it is surely durable and can withstand many every day stresses. Lg Q6 is protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to prevent it from scratches. LG Q6 doesn’t have fingerprint sensor but use the facial recognition technology to unlock the device. It offers excellent colour reproduction with ample amount of brightness and good viewing angles.
The LG Q6 comes equipped with a 13MP rear camera with an LED flash and a 5MP front facing camera. The Square Camera Mode enables four different creative shots: Match shot, Grid shot, Guide shot and Snap shot. It also allows the merging of two images into one, as well as the creation of square grid collages. The Wide Angle Camera takes 100-degree group pictures even without a monopod or selfie stick!
The LG Q6 has a Snapdragon 435 processor and is backed by 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage which is expandable. Connectivity options include Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi b/g/n, USB-OTG, FM radio, and 4G VoLTE. It runs on Android Nougat and comes with a lot of bloatware. Like any other smartphones, there are pre-installed app already installed and you need to update it. The performance of the device is just okay. You will experienced lagging while playing games.
The 3,000mAh Li-Po battery of the LG Q6 lasted more than a day with moderate use. Don’t expect it to last a day if your date is turned on or you are connected to a Wifi the whole day.
Overall, LG Q6 is a beautiful device with great design and it has a reasonable price for a mid-range smartphone especially for the people on a budget. Even though it has no fingerprint sensor, it offers the budding facial recognition technology. The LG Q6 is available in stores with a suggested retail price of Php12,990.
