India is the fastest growing mobile market in the world. To tap this opportunity, more than 20 smartphone companies are showcasing their products to India’s middle class. The most crowded space is mid-range where consumers have ample of choices to select. In a race to grab market share, mobile phone companies want the best hardware in less price. But we consumers get is a weak software with a lack of innovation. What can 15,000 buy you in India? The most probable answer would be a ‘powerful’ phone with 13 mega pixel dual camera and day long lasting battery life.
Panasonic is launching 11 smartphones by Diwali. Lenovo today launched K8 Note with dual camera with similar specifications to Huawei Honor 6X. With low profits, smartphone manufacturers are eyeing towards OEMs for mass manufacturing of mid-range devices. LG with its higher profit costs may not be the choice of smartphone enthusiasts. Over the years, LG has managed to grab my fascination towards its product. In my opinion, looks and feel factor attributes more than the processor name or RAM size. If you are looking for something different, LG Q6 is the one.
LG Q6 is priced at Rs 14,990 and it rightly termed as mini G6. Let’s take a look at specifications.
Display – 5.5 inch Full vision (2160 x 1080 ) display with 18:9 aspect ratio
Camera – 13 MP rear/ 5 MP front.
Processor – Snapdragon 435. Not a powerful device.
RAM/ROM – 3GB/32 GB
Battery – 3000 MaH
OS – Android Nougat 7.1
The LG Q6 is premium looking devices which come with a metal unibody. It has 4G Volte and OTG support. One major drawback is that it lacks fingerprint scanner. It has a face unlock feature but it can be misused by keeping a printed photo in front of sensors. In term of display and looks, there is no competition to LG Q6. It is priced at the same price as Motorola G5 plus, Gionee A1 Lite and Nokia 6.
