2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 13+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Well built, and feel quite sturdy in hand
  • Beautiful design - arguably the best looking device in the sub Rs 20k price category - in fact looks like a miniaturised version of LG's premium flagship G6 - the metal side rails, along with the glossy plastic back give the phone an upmarket look
  • The edges are metallic and rounded, which makes the phone easier to grip - it is also well weighted and very ergonomic for the screen size it offers
  • No fingerprint scanner

Display

  • Has the same Full Vision display that's found in the LG G6, that will make it a conversation starter every time you take it out of your pocket - essentially, the display is a little taller than the standard 1080p resolution - it has a 2160 x 1080p resolution, which takes the aspect ratio from the standard 16:9 to 18:9 - in tandem, the top and bottom bezels have been drastically minimised, which adds to the phone’s unique look - moreover, the Full Vision display not only makes the phone look good, but makes the whole footprint smaller - this means, the LG Q6 with its 5.5-inch display, is just a hair bigger than say the 5-inch Lenovo Z2 Plus
  • As for the display quality, it is pretty good too, and one of the best in the category - viewing angles are very good, it is easily viewable outdoors and under direct sun-light, and with luminance readings of 605 lux, offers ample brightness as well - the display also has Gorilla Glass3 protection on top for scratch protection and the touch response is quite good too

Software

  • LG's UI is decent in terms of aesthetics and functionality
  • No notification LED
  • The UI is decent but LG does include a lot of duplicate apps for pre-built Android functionality - all this bloatware could have been avoided

Performance

  • Although day-to-day performance is just fine, performance with processor-intensive apps/games is behind the competition

Camera

  • Decent rear camera - images have ample details and sharpness
  • The 1080p video recording is sharp and detailed, with good colors and excellent audio
  • The camera app is pretty bare bones apart from panorama and food mode, the phone doesn't really let you tweak settings further
  • Average front facing camera - both dynamic range, and detail level are lacking

Audio

  • Decent call quality
  • Decent call quality
  • The speaker is located on the back side which means it can easily get muffled if you place the phone on a table or couch, face up - it also tends to sound tinny at high volumes

Battery

  • Good battery life - lasts a day even with heavy use
  • Decent (though not exceptional) charging speed - 0 to 100 in a little over 2 hours

More

  • On the whole, the Q6 is a good option for more casual users, who put more stock in design than internal hardware specs - but for users looking for more heavy-use apps/games, better performers like the Moto G5 Plus, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, Honor 6X, Samsung Galaxy On Max etc will make more sense - all these smartphones offer better gaming performance (although day-to-day performance is pretty much same)
  • The phone does come with a “face unlock” feature - but it is a little slow
  • Uses micro-USB port instead of the more modern USB-C standard
