Design And Build Quality

The LG Q6 is definitely one of the most comfortable 5.5-inch smartphones we’ve used recently, thanks to its extremely slim screen borders. The display has rounded corners just like the G6, but the Gorilla Glass lacks a 2.5D curve and sits flat. Its resolution is 2160×1080 thanks to the taller aspect ratio. Unfortunately, there’s no notification LED or always-on display feature to show you missed notifications, so you’ll have to turn the display on constantly just to check. There’s just enough space above the screen for a front camera and sensors, while below it, there’s only an LG logo.The phone uses a 7000-series aluminium frame, which is impressive considering we’ve usually seen this grade of metal reserved for more expensive phones. The corners are rounded too, matching the shape of the display. The back is plastic and attracts smudges very easily, which makes the phone look a little unattractive during everyday use. It also easily picks up scratches easily, so that’s something to keep in mind.The power and volume buttons feel good, and on the left, there are slots for two Nano-SIM cards and a microSD card. The first slot accommodates a Nano-SIM and a microSD card while the second one is for a second SIM. There’s a headphone socket and a Micro-USB port on the bottom, and a mono speaker at the back.

It’s a bit disappointing to not have a USB Type-C port here, even if it only works at USB 2.0 speed. Thankfully, the camera module sits flush with the back and we didn’t see any chipping or scuffing during our review period.If you haven’t noticed it yet, the Q6 has one glaring omission and that’s a fingerprint sensor. For some reason, LG has ditched this security feature. There’s face recognition instead, which works well but there are some glaring flaws which you need to be aware of. By default, face recognition works very fast – all you need to do is lift the phone to your face and it will automatically unlock itself. However, it can easily be fooled by holding a simple photo of the user in front of the camera. Secondly, even though you are allowed to register just one face, you can technically add someone else’s face by using the ‘Improve face recognition’ option which has no problem adding someone else’s facial structure to your own. However, to gain access to this feature, you will need a pattern or a pin, so there’s some level of security put in place.There is a way make recognition more secure, called ‘Advanced face recognition’. With this enabled, a 2D picture doesn’t pass off for your face, but it also takes a lot longer to unlock the phone. Also, the whole process doesn’t work well in low light.Overall, the Q6 is a good-looking device, mostly thanks to its display. It’s built well, feels sturdy, and has an ergonomic design. We’re not happy with omissions like the fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C port and notification light on the phone.

Battery life

The LG Q6 packs in a 3,000mAh battery, which for a phone of this size and price is a fairly modest capacity.Like most phones available now, the Q6 has no issue whatsoever surviving a day of use. However, if you’re a multimedia or Twitter hog like me, you’ll likely finish your day in the 20% area with the Q6. To give you a better idea on how the battery drains, watching a 90-minute high definition video wiped out 16%. This leaves a healthy amount of life left in the Q6 to stick by your side for the rest of the day. However, if you’re watching the on-and-off YouTube clip, interspersed with a few rounds of Hearthstone, you’ll see the percentage plummet – as you would with any device.From a zeroed-out state, a half-hour plugged into the charger revives LG’s midrange smartphone to about 25%. It takes a full hour for it to reach 73% and just under an hour and a half to full charge it.Astoundingly, this phone can lie dormant for days without losing much battery. We left it on over a long, three-day weekend and returned to it still with 87% of the charge remaining.

Camera

As we stated above, the LG Q6 is a competent snapper. Intimate, well-lit shots tend to come out as you’d hope they would and selfies pop in both regular and wide-angle presentation.We had issues with this phone’s low light performance, as we did with its tendency to overblow the highlights in a given photo. This can make shooting on a sunny or overcast day difficult when usually those are the best days to take photos during.We had a mix of victories and defeats with the Q6. Given its midrange status, we’re delighted that we had more of the former than the latter. Check out the photo album and video sample below.I was honestly not expecting results this good. In the right light, the 13MP shines.Only lit by a lamp some feet away, the sensor doesn’t look as magical, but still gets the point across.

The detail looks decent here, but the highlights are overblown.The colors of this bibimbap look stellar in “food mode”, but the lack of detail makes this mouth-watering dish look a little less appetizing.This diorama was already cast in yellow light and the Q6 did a decent job of picking up the general vibe of the setting. Though it took a few tries to not get a blurry result.Notice in the above video sample that the sensor has a difficult finding its focus for some time. Sure, there was a lot to look at, but it’s not the best look if you’re whipping your phone out to capture some time-sensitive footage. Plus, the SteadyRecord feature, which uses electronic image stabilization (EIS) actually results in a more shaky picture, not less.
