It has been a long time since LG break a record, especially on smartphones. If you will notice, LG hasn’t made a scene where people go ga-ga over their new releases unlike Samsung, Apple, & Sony. One more thing, LG is a bit pricey than other brands and not really the “smartphone material” ever since.
LG Q6 Review – Budget Smart Phone from LG
Straight fresh from the oven last month, LG launched a new smartphone which some of the users say a “mini variant” of LG G6, it is the latest innovation of LG, the LG Q6.
LG Q6 has 13 MP, f/2.2, autofocus, LED flash camera, 1/3″ sensor size, a pixel size of 1.12 µm, geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, and panorama with 5 MP front camera, f/2.2, 1/5″ sensor size, 1.12 µm pixel size. This 5.5 inches smartphone has an ability to do multitasking because of its multi-touch capacitive screen. Like the other latest Android phones, it operates on 7.1.1 (Nougat) and has an Octa-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU.
Another great thing about this smartphone is that it operates dual sims and has a Corning Gorilla Glass 3! But yes, don’t trust that gorilla glass 3, it also breaks. You should at least have a tempered glass ready in case you drop the phone – still wishing you won’t.
As a smartphone user, we’re sure that you’re checking on what are the pros and cons of this device that’s why we’re listing it for you.
- It operates on a Nougat which is the latest Android version that has been launched. Not to mention, that it has an Octa-core 1.4 CPU which is good for online gaming.
- It has an option to use two Sim cards, and that means you won’t be needing another phone for a new contact number. Implying, that you are going to save more money for other things.
- Sturdy body. LG has been known for being sturdy, and this phone is proof.
- Unlike other older models of LG’s smartphone, this one has a good camera standing. Even the front camera functions well. Good thing!
- It is like G6 but cheaper and smaller. Did I mention cheaper? Yes, and that is the catch.
- No fingerprint scanner. Too bad it doesn’t have one. However, it has face detection to unlock the phone, but still, it’s a hassle because it’s inconsistent. You still need a good lighting!
- Battery life is still average. Plus, it’s not removable.
- The “plastic” back of the phone can be easily scratched, and it’s noticeable.
- It doesn’t record a 4K video, which is bad.
- The built-in keyboard is not as accurate as on other smartphones
This smartphone is not really a bummer but still, lacks some better things that LG could have included on this launch. Let alone forget a fingerprint scanner and replacing it with a face detection scanner which is useless.
Still, techies are still waiting for the launch of LG V which according to leaked snippets is set to be something like Samsung S8, especially on its performance.
Do you think LG will be successful with this? We’ll see!
