The South Korean handset maker, LG was the first brand to introduce the world to displays with 18:9 aspect ratio. However, its ambitious flagship, LG G6 could not score well with the audience and was a dud. Now, the brand is bringing the FullVision display to mid-range with the newly launched LG Q6 Plus. While the handset does have few tricks up its sleeves, there are few cons as well. Here is a brief lowdown of whether or not you should buy the handset.
Why should you buy?
The mainstay of the handset has to be the 5.5-inch full HD display pane on the front, which is pretty sharp and vivid. However, what catches the attention is that the display is bezel-less and FullVision technology. This means that the handset has more body to screen ratio, making up for a pleasant viewing experience. Therefore, for those looking for a smartphone with good display in budget, LG Q6 Plus is definitely the way to go.
If you are on a hunt for a good smartphone, we cannot put much emphasis on the fact how good it is to have the latest Android on it. The LG Q6 Plus comes with the Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system out of the box. Moreover,the LG UI 5.0 has been revamped and has much less bloatware compared to early versions.
The LG Q6 Plus comes packing a good set of cameras, which makes it one of the better imaging handsets in the market as of now. On its rear panel, the device flaunts a 13-megapixel snapper accompanied with an LED flash. While on the front there is a 5-megapixel camera for those who love to click selfies.
Why should you not buy?
A few years back, LG used to be the only brand that was still offering removable batteries in its smartphones when all other brands were opting for unibody design and non-removable batteries. However, this year onward, LG seems to have changed its stance and is launching devices with non-removable batteries and unfortunately, LG Q6 Plus is one such handset.
The LG Q6 does come with one trick up its sleeve, viz. the FullVision 18:9 display on the front. However, apart from that the handset has nothing noteworthy that is not available in the budget segment.
