The LQ Q6 is called by many as the cheaper G6; I did not want to believe it was a middle class. Already at first glance, the LG Q6 gets your display. It does not come with an unusual aspect ratio of 18: 9 with the narrow frame in the edge.
On the 5.5-inch diagonal, the resolution is 2160 x 1080 pixels. Although the panel is not AMOLED, just IPS only, but you will enjoy each of the displayed content. However, I have to point out that the back is prone to scratches, so I recommend that you get with the phone a protective jacket. If you were looking for a fingerprint reader on the phone, you would be looking for a monster. LG has completely replaced it by face recognition sensor. Although this feature works well, I would appreciate it if it would be complemented by a fingerprint reader, which would greatly speed up the unlocking in some situations.
Fortunately, Smart Lock does not work to let the device stay unlocked when the phone, for example, detects that you have it on your body. The presence of the micro USB port or the absence of USB-C is unpleasant. I was surprised by the non-quality of the rear speaker. LG certainly does not have to save, because the busy loudspeaker is a bit impressed by the fantastic display.
The keypad layout on the phone is standard, that is, the volume control on the left side and the right-hand is the power button. There is also a slot on the side that holds the SIM card and the microSD card.
As for the cameras, the LG Q6 comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera that requires good light and a steady hand for beautiful pictures. Otherwise, the photo will only give you a slush. Here are some examples of what a back camera can do:
With the front 5-megapixel camera, quality flaws can be forgiven more easily, as it seldom serves anything other than selfie photos. This camera can capture the image in a 100-degree angle. You’ll appreciate it, especially when you’re in group selfie or if you want to snap a piece of scenery behind you.
The LG Q6 has a built-in 3,000 mAh battery that is not replaceable. But that does not hurt as long as the phone lasts all day. When playing music, writing longer in a text editor, surfing the internet, and games for a while the battery can remain to take you for another day, which is decent. It could last longer if the battery saving mode is enabled. Fully charging your phone takes about an hour and a half.
Inside, you will find the Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 chipset with the Adreno 505 graphics chip. Hardware is not an asphalt shredder, but will certainly suffice for most people. A beautiful display but a lure for a good load and in such moments you will have to remind yourself that you do not hold high-end hands. In the AnTuTu benchmark, the Q6 achieved 37,000 points and 8,000 points in the 3D Mark Ice Storm.
The hardware is powered by Android 7.1.1 with LG UX 6.0. Many of these superstructures are still the best that LG has brought to their phones, and I have to agree. The environment is neat and functional at the same time, with no extra software. On the contrary, LG’s built-in applications are quite useful. Smart Doctor will take care of your phone diagnostics.
When considering the LG Q6, you have to always remind yourself that both the hardware and the camera respond to the price category. The beautiful display and the fabulous design make it easy and you feel that you hold the latest flagship in your hand.
