Reviews for the LG Q6

81.7% LG Q6 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Trimmed. The looks of the LG Q6 closely resemble those of the LG G6, only at a much lower price point. The trade-off is its trimmed performance, a performance that makes the phone struggle hard in its price range. We will find out whether the phone is a recommendable purchase.
The LG Q6 Review
Source: Tech Girl English
The LG Q6 is a great mid range smartphone. I’ve always loved the LG offerings (other than the modular thing they did) and think they make practical phones that do the job and look the part. Plus, one handed texting friends, I’ve missed this!

70% LG Q6 review: Honey, I shrunk the G6
Source: India Today English
The LG Q6, for all intents and purposes, can be considered as a mini G6. The mid-level Q6 looks every bit as futuristic as LG's flagship G6. It feel as good, if not better, and is built from scratch to take a beating (although that plastic back is susceptible to scratches) something that not a lot of phones at around Rs 15,000 can really brag about. Its 18:9 Full Vision display, meanwhile, adds a third dimension to the Q6, much like the G6. LG has even gone on and added the same set of software gimmicks to it, to make that unusual aspect ratio count, as the flagship G6. Unlike the G6, however, the Q6 costs just Rs 14,990.

In the end, the Q6 is beauty that is skin deep, which is a shame because we really wanted it to be good. If LG were to make a version with more power under the hood, we would love to give it another shot.

74% LG Q6 review – budget beauty
Source: Android Authority English
We cannot recommend the LG Q6, however. The lack of a fingerprint reader, unimpressive cameras, and other minor issues just make it tough to justify over competing options. Unless you really want a near bezel-less display for a cheap price, you will probably be happier with something else.

60% LG Q6 smartphone review: All about hits and misses
Source: Gadget Show English
Based on our analysis, the LG Q6 has several factors that work in its favour and some that don't. It has a beautiful display with wide 18:9 aspect ratio which we've seen with the flagship LG G6. The body is compact and light-weight while the battery is one of the most appealing corners in the device. The camera too works flawlessly across the board.

70% LG Q6 review: Full vision display at a budget pricing
Source: The Indian Express English
The highlight of the LG Q6 is the display and the design. But as I said the specifications, including the Qualcomm 435 processor, battery life, make this appear to be a more expensive proposition for most people. If you want a more compact phone with a unique display, then the LG Q6 is an option to consider. However, those looking for a blazing performance or a great camera at this budget should probably examine options in the market.

LG Q6 Review: Futuristic concept, not-so-futuristic implementation!
Source: The Mobile Indian English
To sum up, the LG Q6 comes with a surprisingly compact form factor and the FullVision display does almost do a decent job. However, other than this, the overall performance of the smartphone is not matchable with the likes of Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, Moto G5 Plus, Honor 6X and more, as each of one of them comes loaded with better hardware arsenal and have proved their mettle in the market.

72% LG Q6 Review: Future-proof Looks, Dated Specs
Source: Tech PP English
There are no second thoughts about the fact that the LG Q6 is one very good looking device. But priced at Rs. 14,999, it faces some tough competition from the likes of Xiaomi, Moto, Lenovo, Huawei, and even Samsung. Apart from the 18:9 screen ratio, there is nothing particularly outstanding in the device. The camera is decent, the battery is average, and the overall performance is not that great. You get a similarly specced device (minus that display but plus a larger battery), the Xiaomi Redmi 4 under Rs. 10,000, and if we move into the Q6’s price range, then the likes of the Lenovo K8 Note, the Redmi Note 4, the Honor 6X and the Moto G5 Plus start making their presence felt, more than matching it in all departments other than that display. The Q6 definitely looks future proof, but its performance and price hark more to a period of the past.

LG Q6 Review
Source: Fone Arena English
Overall, LG Q6 is an above average device packing nothing special in it if not for FullVision display. With Q6, LG has tried too hard to make a dent in the mid-range market but failed. At a price of Rs. 14,990, the LG Q6 lacks fingerprint, has a scratch prone plastic back and average camera. Unless and until, if you don’t mind spending Rs. 15,000 for a phone with a large screen in a compact size, you can go for LG Q6. If not, you have lots of options including, Moto G5 Plus, Honor 6X, Lenovo P2 and more.

70% LG Q6 Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The 18:9 screen aspect ratio is sure to become popular in the smartphone world, and the LG Q6 looks futuristic despite its value pricing, which could be a major selling point. Even a few of years down the line, the Q6 should still look modern. It isn't the most powerful smartphone in its class so if brute force is what you’re looking for, then you’d be better served by the likes of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 (Review), Honor 6X (Review) or even the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime (Review).

LG’s big screen FHD+ budget phone
Source: Gadgetguy English
It has Bluetooth 4.2 (no mention of NFC), and 802.11b/g/n WiFi, 2.4GHz only. It supports WiFi direct and can provide a WiFi hotspot. The phone supports the common 4G bands. No mention is made of super high performance LTE specs, so I guess it’s pretty much standard on that front. The socket at the bottom of the phone is Micro-B USB.

At its price of €200 in India and at the lower prices in the UK and Australia, we can easily overlook the phone’s flaws (well, it’s hard to forgive the lack of a fingerprint scanner…) and blame it all on the cost, but at the €350 full retail price in Europe, there are far better options out there.

LG is bringing the FullVision display feature to an affordable price range, including a really beautiful design and great build quality. LG is unifying their lineup with this design ethos and we’ve seen it with the LG G6 tot he LG G6+ and now the LG Q6. LG might just as well call the Q6 the LG G6 Mini.

Unofficially titled the “LG G6 mini”, the Q6 is an impressive midrange phone on its own. While it lacks certain flagship features, the FullVision display and rear-facing camera are stand-out inclusions that you probably won’t find elsewhere for this cheap.

LG G6 vs LG Q6: Price, design and specs
Source: PC Advisor English
We really need to know the prices of the LG Q6 models to see how it competes with it's bigger brother. The price will need to be fairly cheap to make it worth losing various key features as the G6 is already available for a lot less than the £649 launch figure.

Qualcomm Adreno 505: Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
435: Lower mainstream octa-core ARM Cortex-A53 SoC clocked at up to 1.4 GHz and the Adreno 505 GPU, a DDR3L-1600 memory controller as well as an X9 LTE (Cat. 7) modem. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
