How much does the LG Q6 cost? RRP $399

The LG Q6 is LG's budget homage to the LG G6, and it's a good option if you want a solid display and camera phone at an affordable pricepoint.

Most smartphone manufacturers tend to strictly differentiate their budget and premium lines, with only the most costly phones grabbing premium design and features. LG's pitch for the LG Q6 is that it's essentially a smaller LG G6 for the more cost-centric buyer who wants a full-screen Android handset.

Design

  • Face-filling 5.5-inch display is bright and crisp.
  • Dual-SIM support is a nice bonus for those who maintain two different phone numbers.

Camera

  • Photo quality is impressively high for a phone at this pricepoint.
  • Focus is a little slower than average which can make in-motion shots difficult to capture.

Performance

  • Middle-of-the-road performance for a budget handset.
  • LG's custom Android interface is relatively clean and light.

Battery life

  • The 3,000mAh battery delivers solid results comparable with other budget handsets.
  • All-day battery life is well within its capabilities.

Verdict

  • Thanks to its striking FullVision display, the LG Q6 is a standout budget smartphone well worth considering.
