With the Q6, LG did something interesting. They made a device looking similar to the flagship G6, with an bezel-less” design, or to be more precise, a 5.5-inch FullHD screen that covers nearly 80% (78% to be precise) of the device’s front. The Q6 is a midrange device, using the Snapdragon 435 platform, with 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, 3000mAh battery and a 13 MP, f/2.2 back camera.
As you may have noticed, the device is similarly equipped to the Nokia 6, HMD’s best midrange offering, and you’re right. Even the price, at least in India, is the same 15,000 INR (€195) just like the Nokia 6 on Amazon.in. In Europe, the situation is a little different. The Q6 is priced, on average, €50 more than the Nokia 6, which is a considerable amount in the midrange segment.
YouTube channel Geekyranjit did a camera comparison between the (in India identically priced) Nokia 6 and LG Q6. The Nokia 6 comes with a 16MP, f/2 camera with 1.0um pixels size and PDAF. The Q6 features a 13MP, f/2.2 and 1.12 µm pixel size. Check the video comparison down below.
In short, Ranjit concludes that Nokia 6 is a better device in terms of camera performance. Overall, Ranjit concludes that as a whole, he likes the Nokia 6 more because it’s more practical, with better battery life, even though the Q6 is more attractive looking because of thin bezels. In other aspects, my guess is the phones are quite similar. In India, if you don’t care about camera and battery life and want an attractive phone, the Q6 seems a better choice. In Europe, where the price difference is on average €50, it’s hard to pick the Q6 ahead of Nokia 6, unless you really want the bezel-less look. Of course, a good judgement cannot be given before we test both phones ourself, but you can listen to Ranjit who tested both devices.
