Reviews for the LG Q60
LG brings a triple camera in the middle class and with the Q60 in particular, puts multimedia applications in the foreground. The 19:9 screen and a good sound should be the main highlights, but the Google Assistant with integrated LG voice commands gets even greater importance. In our test we check how the interaction works.

With a retail price of R3 800 in South Africa, the LG Q60 is up against the likes of the Samsung Galaxy A20 and Huawei Y7 2019, pretty similar devices at that price point, with a few things that counts for and against them. While the wider camera gives the LG Q60 the edge for photography, its screen resolution knocks it back down again. Nonetheless, the LG Q60 should definitely be on your mid-range shortlist if you’re aiming for the sub-R4k mark.

LG has not been doing so well on the flagship level. With Huawei, Samsung and even OnePlus taking the stage, LG has been pretty much left out in the dark. Its latest flagship, the G8, has sales figures that are far smaller than those of the Samsung Galaxy S10 series and the Huawei P30. LG plans to get sales figures up in the mid-range series. Its latest mid-range device, the Q60, looks very much like the G8. It is the most premium phone in their mid-range series. For a start, the Q60 measures only 8.7 mm in thickness. Its front consists mostly of the screen, but the bezels are quite thick on all sides, especially at the bottom, bringing the screen-to-body ration to about 79%. The screen has a tear-drop style notch to maximize its size. It is a 6.3-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels, which is pretty low for a screen of this size. This brings the pixel count to 269 pixels per inch. Early reviews put the LCD at an acceptable level. The brightness is on the lower side, especially in typical outdoor usage. The phone comes with a 2GHz Octa core processor coupled with 3 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. Additionally, the storage can be expanded by up to 1 TB by using a micro-SD card. Performance wise, the phone is good enough for a device in this price range.
In terms of cameras, the LG Q60 gives much more than what other phones can give in this price range. Its triple camera setup consists of a 16MP + 5MP + 2MP depth sensor. This gives some really good photos. The front camera has 13 MP, which should be good enough for the occasional selfies and video calls. The LG Q60 has a 3.5mm head phone jack at the bottom, which supports DTS surround sound. This budget phone features a rear fingerprint scanner that is as accurate as it gets for this type of sensor. Powering all this is a 3500mAh battery which should give great battery life with that lower resolution screen. The LG Q60 delivers strong hardware performance for its price. However, its lower resolution display might not be ideal for many users. Besides, its main competition, the Samsung A30, costs around the same, but it has a bigger AMOLED display and a bigger battery. Its camera performance is almost the same, but the device design is much better than that of the LG Q60.

71.52%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
