LG Q6: A budget version of the excellent G6

LG Q6: A budget version of the excellent G6

I love the LG G6, as I mentioned in the review. Of all the phones in 2017 it is perhaps one of the most underrated, but the build quality, its excellent dual camera, and beautiful screen make it an excellent smartphone alternative; especially since it offers a fairly compact size, despite offering a large screen.

Much of its appeal is due to the 18: 9 format; a screen longer than wide which, in my opinion, makes a lot of sense for mobile phones. Think for a moment about how we use smartphones: we usually have them vertically, right? And we tend to scrolle a lot, whether on Facebook, in WhatsApp / Mssenger conversations, on the Web, on Reddit, always consuming information. Having a taller phone capable of holding more information, without necessarily increasing the thickness of the phone and making it more difficult to hold. Look at the LG G6 compared to the iPhone 7 Plus, to get an idea of ​​how such a small phone can have so much screen:

Now LG is planning to be the first to bring phones with these excellent screens, to the mid-range, with the Q6. This Q6 is a phone that it maintains some of the important features of the G6, in a smaller size. We continue with the 18: 9 screen, but in a 5.5 panel with a resolution of 2160 × 1080 (Full HD). The phone has the Snapdragon 435 processor with 32 GBs of storage and 3 GBs of RAM, while a Plus version, the Q6 +, gives us 4 GBs of RAM and 64 GBs of storage. Finally, we have a lower cost model with 2 GBs of RAM and 16 GBs of storage.

The phones come with Android 7.1.1 (yes, a newer version of Android than the one included in the G6), a simple 13 megapixel camera and an aluminum body. These phones will be arriving in August in Asia, and soon also in Europe, Latin America and North America.
