Let’s find out about the infinity display phone in a very reasonable price range, that’s LG Q6.
As we all know, this year, many mid-ranged smartphones were released with good specifications and some extra features. But infinity display in a mid-range smartphone is a new thing. Most of the people who can’t afford infinity display phones like Samsung Galaxy Note 8, iPhone X, or Mi Mix 2, can go with this phone which is priced under $250.
LG Q6 comes in three variants viz Astro Black, Terra Gold, and Ice Platinum.
Body and Design
Unlike Moto G5s Plus, this phone’s body is not the metal unibody but it has a 7000 series Aluminium frame around it which protects the body. It is US Military Standard 810-G certified. It weighs just 149 g. The body isn’t slim enough as it is 8.1 mm thick.
Overall, the 7000 series aluminum frame protects the phone from accidental drops and makes it durable.
Processor and Speed
The factor that disappointed me for Nokia 6 and LG Q6 was the processor. Both of them have Snapdragon “400” series processor. LG Q6 comes with 1.4 GHz Snapdragon 435 octa-core processor. The processor is good enough to play high-end games like Asphalt 8 or GTA. It is a pretty outdated processor but the processing power is good (not the best). Still, in this price range, we consider it as a good processor.
RAM, ROM, and Android
This phone comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM. LG Q6 comes with Android 7.1.1 Nougat. In my opinion, 32GB internal is sufficient for people who normally use the phone for Social Networking, Surfing and Little Gaming. But if you are a hardcore gamer and you install a lot of GB’s of games on your phone then you need to add extra memory to your phone.
Battery and Charging
LG Q6 comes with a 3000 mAh battery. The fact is it does not support turbo-charging or quick charging. It would take almost 2 hours to charge the phones fully. The competitors of this phone like the Moto G5 plus or the Moto G5s Plus support turbo-charging which is quite disappointing for the LG Q6 users. Perhaps, the tests prove that the battery backup is quite good on the phone. The battery is non-removable.
The display is the most interesting part of this phone. It is a 5.5-inch FHD+ Display with resolution 1080×2160 and 442 PPI density which is quite good. That’s it? No, it is a Full Vision Display (infinity display) with 18:9 ratio which is quite good rather excellent as this phone’s price is as low as Rs. 14990. The company has not mentioned about the sunlight readability on the display, but as it is a smartphone under Rs. 15000, it may have this feature.
The primary camera in the LG Q6 smartphone features a 13 MP sensor with aperture f/2.2 and autofocus. The pixel size is 1.13 micrometer.
Other features include geo-tagging, touch focus, panorama and face detection.
The secondary camera has 5 MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture and 1.12-micrometer pixel size.
Sounds, Speakers, and Recording
This phone has a mono loudspeaker and a 3.5mm jack for headphones/headsets. Currently, we have not got our hands on this phone, so we have no idea about the recording quality on this phone. But stay updated and subscribe to the push notifications as well as the newsletter on this blog and you’ll get notified as we update it.
