The insane number of choices under 20k in India can be overwhelming for buyers. In fact, it is hard to keep up with the new launches, as brands come up with new models or upgrades every now and then. The LG Q6 Plus fits someone in between. While the initial launch price was around 20k, online stores are offering decent discounts. Should you buy LG Q6 Plus? Check the specifications and other aspects below to decide for yourself.
Know your device
LG Q6 Plus comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD+ display with screen resolution of 1080 x 2160. For the price point, you probably expected better, but we didn’t have any issues with color saturation and viewing angles while reviewing the phone. It runs on Android v7.1.1 (Nougat) out of the box, but it is expected to get the Oreo update soon. At its core, it runs on the 1.4GHz Octa Core Qualcomm MSM8940 Snapdragon 435 Processor coupled with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB. It weighs somewhere around 150 grams and is pretty slim at 8.1 mm. On the rear, you get a 13 MP CMOS AF with LED Flash, while there is a 5MP camera on the front.
LG Q6+ has a full-metal body, which feels and looks premium. With just 69.3mm width, the phone is incredibly easy to use too, and one-hand operation feels pretty okay. The 3000mAh battery offers decent backup for a day, and all the expected sensors are in place, including accelerometer, proximity sensor and gyroscope. The processor feels fast, and there are no lags as far as performance is concerned. Even with heavy gaming, there were no heating issues for our reviewer, and the interface is pretty smooth.
On the flip side
LG Q6 Plus might have good specifications on paper, but it doesn’t really make a cut for the competitive segment it belongs to. For the same price, you can get something like Lenovo K8 Note, which costs much lesser. Also, the phone doesn’t click in the camera department, given that other models are packing 13MP cameras on the front too and much better variants on the rear.
Right from the 5.5-inch Full HD+ display to the powerful processor, LG Q6 Plus works wonders on many counts, but doesn’t really pack the punch as expected from a smartphone priced at 20k. It has to compete with arch rivals from Lenovo, Motorola, Mi and Samsung, and for much lower prices, you get better camera specifications too.
Nevertheless, Q6 Plus is a good attempt from LG, and it may entice some of the loyal fans of the brand. Check online now to find the best discounts!
