LG has been having a hard time with its smartphone segment in the last couple of years, but with the Q6 series, things certainly look better for the brand. LG Q6 Plus was launched a month after LG Q6, and it promises more fun and better storage. Here’s a quick review of the device, so that you can take a call.
LG Q6 Plus has been priced at Rs. 17,990, but you can always get it a discount online. LG has promoted the Q6 series for great features at an affordable price, and this device stands on that. It is powered by the 1.4GHz Octa Core Qualcomm MSM8940 Snapdragon 435 Processor, with 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM, which is quite decent for the price you pay. It comes in two color variants – Ice Platinum and Astro Black. It also brings the face unlock feature to this range. The device comes with Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box, but you can expect an update soon. In terms of camera, you get a 13-megapixel shooter on the rear with a LED flash, while a 5-megapixel camera adorns the front. LG Q6+ runs on a 3000mAh battery and has a full-metal body, weighing at 149 grams.
First and foremost, LG Q6+ comes with a 13.97cm (5.5) FHD + IPS Display with resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels. If you have been looking for an 18:9 screen for smartphone under 20k, this is the one to go for. The device is quite sturdy and slim too, and if you are worried about regular impacts and bumps, Q6 Plus handles them quite well. There are no heating issues with this device, even if you consider heavy gaming and multitasking, which is a great thing keeping some of the other models of this segment in mind.
The battery is a bummer for the price point, and honestly, LG hasn’t packed anything extraordinary for the price. For a segment that’s getting competitive by the day, Q6+ feels a bit underwhelming in more ways than one.
Go for Q6+ if you are a fan of the brand. This phone is available on a discount online, which is an added advantage, and yes, if you want something cheaper, you can try Lenovo K8 Note too. Lenovo K8 Note price in India is under 14k and it also has a good display worth considering. LG Q6+, overall, feels like a nice phone, which packs good hardware and offers good Android experience. If you are happy with that and don’t want to fall for camera gimmicks of Oppo and Vivo, LG Q6+ is a good choice. It feels like a premium device, and hopefully, this will turn things in favor of LG.
