LG Q6 is just unveiled a few days back, and it seems that the design resembles the flagship LG G6. Flaunts a metallic unibody design, the LG Q6 comes with minimal edges FullVision display with a resolution of Full HD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels). Here’s the hands-on with LG Q6.

LG has brought the FullVision display with minimalist edge i.e. the least borders on the sides, to the midrange segment. Here’s the deal, it looks like a lite variant of the LG G6 which is currently the top-end smartphone from LG. LG Q6 is light in weight, robust, and feels fantastic. It is MIL STD-810G military grade certified.

The metallic frames on the sides are strong (made out of 7000 series aluminum), grippy and it all fits in one hand despite being a 5.5-inch. The display is a Full HD+ resolution (2160 x 1080 pixels) with a wider 18:9 aspect ratio. The screen is almost borderless and looks great.

As it is priced in the mid-range category, the LG Q6 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 Soc which is the entry level chip from Qualcomm paired with 3 GB LPDDR3 RAM and 32 GB storage. The storage can be expanded up to 2 TB via a Micro SD Card. Since LG G6 is a flagship smartphone with Snapdragon 821 SoC, 4 GB RAM and dual rear cameras, the LG Q6, despite looks very identical, has a mid-range hardware.

What’s missing on the phone is a fingerprint scanner, while even the cheapest smartphones come with fingerprint scanners, the LG Q6 doesn’t come with one. Further, there are no touch buttons on the bottom area, all you have are the internal onscreen navigation buttons just like we saw on the LG G6.

In terms of camera, it uses a 13 MP camera on the rear side and a 5 MP wide-angle camera (100-degree) on the front end with Face Recognition. Unfortunately, it doesn’t offer dual cameras, the Chinese rivals come with dual cameras in this price range. There is no inclusion of the flash on the front side while the rear side has a single LED flash.

During the first few hours of usage, we didn’t notice any lags on the phone. The octa-core processor should handle most daily apps just fine without any issues. Out of the box, the LG Q6 has Android 7.1.1 Nougat with LG UX 6.0 skin on top. The same software we saw on the LG G6 with native Android N features. You can use the multi-window, as well as the Quick Switch, Direct Reply, Quick Shortcuts and a few more

On the bottom, we didn’t find the type-C USB port, but instead, the usual Micro USB port. There are two microphones one on the top and another on the bottom alongside a 3.5 mm headphones jack. The sides contain a power button on the right, two separate volume buttons on the left, two trays, one for dual SIM and one for MicroSD.

LG Q6 is priced at ₹14,990 and it is available in Astro Black, Ice Platinum, Terra Gold colors and exclusively on Amazon India. LG offers a 1-year warranty with free screen replacement within 6 months of purchase.

The display along with the bezel-less screen is something I could have never imagined at this price range.

How good is the video quality of this phone? Can someone who is using this phone help me with this? I understand that the phone is the best deal and is loaded with the features, but still my requirement is such that I need to know about the experience of a user about the video recorded using this device.

Yes, dear it’s the best gift for your mom. I too have gifted this phone to my father; it is not a regret at any point. The features are amazing and the UI is like the cherry on the top!

Can I gift this to my mother? She is not a tech savvy, she is an average phone user, and uses the phone to play games, do online shopping and watch movies. So can you suggest me if I can gift her this phone?

The display of this phone is something one cannot expect at this price range. LG has finally made it to the market with this mid-range phone.

Sir, I travel to my work place which is almost 4 hours both ways, do you think the phone has a good battery life to play movies during that period, if I use the phone moderately during office hours?

Battery life most depends on how you use your smartphone (playing games, talk-time, listing music or playing videos, internet browsing etc.) and settings (brightness, wifi, gps, bluetooth etc), how old is your battery is another constraint. LG Q6 smartphone has average (3000 mah) battery.. not very good but not even bad. Weak point is this phone does not have quick charging so it takes up to 1.5 hours to full charge from zero. You need to keep on charging whenever charging port is available. Smartphone does not keep you moving if you are travelers.. You have two options – One… Read more »

I do not think one can get a better offer than this; LG is back into the competition once again with this phone which is high on specs and low on price.

I am super excited with the sturdy body LG has given to this phone; hopefully it is as promising as mentioned in the review.

I guess a movie freak like me should buy this phone, it is a great deal with the right kind of display and a huge space to store the movies to watch them as and when I feel like.

I don’t understand why people are so much obsessed with the finger print sensor, I am using Moto G4 and the most irritating thing is that at times the sensor stops working for no reason and then I have to switch to normal pattern unlocking. Is it not better to have a face recognition feature instead?

Ranjeet Kashyap

I am confused about the gold color, is it Rose gold or the normal golden colored phone? I have checked it on Amazon as well still I am not so sure about the color, as I want to have phone in gold color.

Is there any EMI option available on this? I do not want to miss this deal, but need EMI option to pay for the phone, is it there? Please let me know.

Yes, I agree with that having a finger print sensor is not a deal breaker. At this price if you are getting so many other features as well and the face recognition feature is so unique and amazing to use.
