Tech Review: LGG6 vs. LGQ6

I got on my hands @LGPhilippines precious babies, the LGG6 and LGQ6

G6 was launched early this year then here comes the latest and most affordable unit the Q6. In comparison, the G6 is the high end model compared to the Q6. Meaning more features for the G6, but the Q6 is not a far from it. Same functions and gestures that you’re used with. It differs in resolution of the camera, video, sounds and display.  

PRICE

For those who opt for a more affordable phone the Q6 is your go to social media phone P 12, 990 then the G6 is P39,990 ish. SO Q6 WINS! 

DESIGN

The Q6 is lighter and smaller in size compared to the G6. The Q6 it can be mistaken as a regular smart phone but it is sleek with its curve and edges. The G6 is longer and has straight edges. In terms of weight Q6 wins but design G6 plus it has a FINGER PRINT SENSOR/SCANNER at the back.  

Q6 comes in metallic, gold and white. The G6 comes in black, metallic and white (I prefer BLACK).

My surprise the box/packaging for the Q6 is bigger than the G6 hmmm? In the compartment you get the charger, USB Cable, earphones and manuals. 

BOTH ARE WATER RESISTANT.  

CAMERA

LG photos comes best when there is natural light. 

With the LG phone it comes with built in filters, you can adjust the skin tone and lighting like on instagram, but G6 has a special feature you can take your selfie without checking it – the screen splits into 2 its the SQUARE CAMERA APPLICATION. Another special feature on the G6 on the SQUARE CAMERA APPLICATION – MATCH SHOT, SNAP SHOT, GUIDE SHOT (This is for taking food shots and flatlays) AND GRID SHOT. CLICK < MODE (It is on the upper left corner) once you start on the app.  

use GUIDE SHOT MODE on SQUARE CAMERA APP  for taking food shots and flatlays

LGG6 (UP) & LGQ6 (DOWN)

When it comes to the rear camera both are good in taking photos but when it comes to selfies G6 is better than Q6. 

PHONE’S VIDEO RESOLUTION

LG gives of a more vibrant feel when it comes to watching videos and it is more contrasting compared to other smart phones. The G6 AND Q6 are equal on this but when it comes to screen size it’s better to watch on the G6 since it has a  5.7” Quad HD Full Vision display 2880 x 1440 (564 ppi) 18:9 screen aspect ratio compared to the Q6 that is 5.5. inch.

SOUND

When it comes to sounds whether it be headset or loudspeaker LG is the best at it. The G6 is way louder than the Q6 when I compared it playing the exact video. Q6 is like good for one person when its on loudspeaker.

The LG can adapt to any earphones whether it be its very own or other earphone/headphone brand. 

BATTERY LIFE

In terms both have long battery life, way longer than Iphone. The G6 I tried not using it for a week with no data or wifi it is still functioning. Nice one Q6!
