Although LG is generally more renowned amongst Singaporeans for manufacturing products such as televisions and other household electronic appliances, it also has a commendable smartphone line. The LG G6 Plus may not be a model that first comes to mind when mid-range smartphones are concerned, but it boasts a solid combination of hardware and software features that might be just what you are looking for.
Design and Build
The LG G6 Plus ticks all the right boxes when it comes to its design. Despite having a “Plus” term in its name, the device is not too bulky and can be held quite comfortably in the hand. The device sports a metal unibody with curved corners and chamfered edges, giving it a refined look and feel. The LG G6 Plus is equipped with a sheet of Gorilla Glass 5 that sits atop the metal frame, resulting in a shiny look that further improves the overall aesthetics of the device.
In terms of display, the LG G6 Plus features a 5.7-inch QHD+ FullVision screen that comes with an 18:9 ratio and a 2880 x 1440 display resolution. Thanks to its QHD+ resolution, the display screen delivers rich and vivid colours, making multimedia consumption on the device an absolutely enjoyable experience.
Under its hood, the LG G6 Plus has a flurry of internal components that enables it to deliver smooth performance. The device sports a solid combination of quad-core Snapdragon 821 processor, Adreno 530 GPU, 6GB worth of RAM, and 128GB of built-in storage. Multitasking and app-switching is handled with a breeze and graphic-intensive games can be played without signs of slowing down.
Like many top-notch smartphones available in the market today, the LG G6 Plus has a dual camera setup at its rear. Both cameras have 13MP sensors with f/1.8 and f/2.4 apertures respectively. The cameras perform well even in low-light conditions with only a single source of light.
On the other hand, the selfie camera in front only has a 5MP resolution with an aperture of f/2.2. Although 5MP is not much to shout about, it is good enough to be used indoors and outdoors and can offer decent image quality regardless of the lighting condition. Photos taken are sharp and rich in colours without being over-saturated. Under optimum lighting, the 5MP front camera delivers social-media worthy selfies without needing to be edited.
Another plus point of the LG G6 Plus is its neat and simple user interface that looks quite similar to stock Android. The interface is designed to enable users to access and manage their apps better. It also has customisable navigation buttons, a number of smart settings, and App Trash for you to organise your apps with ease.
Speaking of the battery, the LG G6 Plus consists of a 3,300mAh battery that powers the device through the day without difficulty. It also supports both wireless charging and QuickCharge capabilities. This means that it only takes one hour and a half to recharge the smartphone fully.
