LG Q6 review
FullVision for everyone
The LG Q6 is set for an August release in the UK and Europe. It promises to make the FullVision Display more attainable, with a pricing point that is significantly under that of the LG G6 and LG G6+.

In order to lower the price point of the LG Q6, LG has discarded the dual camera, fingerprint sensor and IP68 certification for water resistance, all of which featured on the LG G6.
The result of all of this, is a more affordable FullVision smartphone that is smaller and lighter.
The LG Q6 has a 5.5” FullVision Display, which has an elongated look with an 18:9 aspect ratio. LG has tweaked the user interface to make the most of this and when you do things like viewing a web page, more of the page is visible, reducing the amount of vertical scrolling.
The LG Q6 has a Full HD+ resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels (442 pixels per inch).
Aluminium H-Beam frame
This LG mobile phone has a tough 7000 series aluminium metal H-Beam frame. This construction helps the LG Q6 to endure impacts from any direction.

The design noticeably has no camera bump on the rear, has nicely rounded corners and feels light in the hand at 149g. The 8.1mm thick body has a slimmer width (69.3mm) and this aids one-handed use.
The front glass is flat, which according to LG will reduce the number of false touches that plague phone’s with 2.5D curved glass. The LG Q6 will launch in three colours, allowing you to choose either Terra Gold, Mystic White or Astro Black.
Phone Set Up
We have already mentioned that LG dropped the fingerprint sensor on the LG Q6, in order to keep the pricing point low. However there is facial recognition so you can simply lift the phone up in order to unlock it quickly, without having to type, draw a pattern or locate a fingerprint sensor.
You can transfer data over from an old smartphone and LG has given the Q6 a healthy 32GB of internal memory, for doing this.
The LG Q6 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 3GB RAM and the Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system. This gives a great user experience and you get to enjoy the Google Assistant and split window apps.
Camera & Video
Square Camera Mode
The LG Q6 has an apt 13MP camera that has Steady Record for shooting video and Square Camera Mode, with the following features:
- Snap Shot - View the photograph you have just taken while lining up your next shot on the same screen
- Guide Shot - Recreate photos with a guide image
- Grid Shot - Show off your photos and videos in a two-by-two collage
- Match Shot - Blend two photos together
Wide Selfie Camera
The 5MP Wide Selfie Camera has a 100 degrees field of view, which is very useful when you want to capture a group selfie. It is also useful for capturing the background scenery, when you are in amazing locations.

You can still switch back to a standard 82 degrees field of view, for capturing more personal self portraits.
