2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 1 Expert Review analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Sturdy, modern design - has a small dot notch, metal sides and plastic back construction
  • Dedicated Google Assistant button
  • Fingerprint sensor on the back is quick and reliable

Display

  • Average 6.2-inch IPS display - colours are not well separated and resolution is on the lower side as compared to the competition
  • In direct sunlight, it is difficult to read content from the screen

Software

  • The software experience is easy to get around - everything is nice and simple, and there isn't much bloatware

Performance

  • Performance is a weak point for LG Q60 based on the MediaTek Helio P22 - everyday apps run smoothly, but anything beyond that achieves a below-average result (Games like PUBG will stutter)

Camera

  • Front camera takes good quality portraits - there are various colour filters, users can also enable a beautify mode that softens skin, however, colours seem a bit pale and light areas are slightly overexposed
  • Average triple rear camera: 16-megapixel primary sensor, a 5-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor - while under controlled light conditions the camera can take detailed pictures, the colours look pale and it gets worse under low lights - object edges are often blurred
  • The main camera does not have a manual mode

Audio

  • The speaker of the LG Q60 offers good volume and a relatively balanced sound spectrum, therefore quite suitable for media consumption
  • Good call quality, transmits both participants' voices clearly - noise filtering functions relatively well, which make conversations possible even in louder environments

Battery

  • Battery life is very good, comparable to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 which has a significantly larger battery
  • Slow charging speed - the included AC adapter can fully charge the 3500 mAh battery in about three hours

Verdict

  • LG Q60 falls behind the competition with its poor performance, sparing low memory and the moderate camera performance - the added value of a Google Assistant key is also not very big - there are far better options from Xiaomi and Realme at this price point
