LG Optimus F6 Review
While LG only equipped the Optimus F6 with a 5-megapixel main camera, it does feature back side illumination (BSI), which should result in clear pictures in low light conditions. Unfortunately this really didn’t pan out in our samples, where low-light pictures were basically worthless. Pictures in general turned out very soft, lacking crispness and overexposed. With even lighting or on the main subject of a shot color reproduction was good, but it really struggled with background and depth of field accuracy.

LG Optimus F6 Sample Images
The camcorder is capable of recording videos at 1080p, and for a mid-range device performed acceptably. The mic was too sensitive, and it would benefit greatly from some image stabilization.
The camera interface is slightly customizable, allowing you to move some of the main icons around. All the features you’d expect are on board, such as ISO and White Balance adjustment, various filters and geo-tagging. LG has included their Time Catch Shot features, which captures moments before and after you snap a shot. This can be a nice feature to enable when taking action photos, such as shooting kids or pets. Unfortunately the screenshot function is disabled while using the camera, but check out our video for a look at the interface and customization features.
You’ll find LG’s music and video players preloaded on the Optimus F6, along with Google’s Music and Movies and TV offerings. The LG video player allows for pinch to zoom during playback, and has some other nice gestures like a horizontal swipe to control playback and a vertical one for screen brightness. Though we usually don’t care for duplicate apps, in this case LG includes some genuine improvements. Videos looked good on the qHD display with plenty of brightness. The music player unfortunately offers no enhancements over the stock option, with a more bland design and overall is wholly unnecessary. Like the browser, there are plenty of alternative multimedia apps in the Play Store.

Still the Samsung Galaxy Core gets a 8.0 rating. I think phonearena will update their site for people to preorder Samsung devices easier.

Can someone explain why a pixel density of 245 is low (this phone) and a density of 162 on the iPad mini is average? (phonearena.com/phones/Apple-iPad-mini_id7523) Everyone agrees that a pixel density below 180 is very poor! Yet they rate the mini as average and this phone as poor? Whats the middle ground? Does PA think that Apple products with crappy screens are good, but when the pixel density goes to 250 its still low for everyone else! PA needs to rethink their standards, its all over the map!
below 200 - poor/low
200-300 - average/mid range
300-400 - good/high
400-500 - excellent/outstanding
HOWS THAT FOR A PROPER STANDARD? THAT ALL PHONES / TABLETS FOLLOW!
I know that I have a much higher level of education than most of the journalist/editors at PA, but I shouldn't have to make a chart that you all should follow and understand. You need to improve your standards because your work is below average for a professional organization!

Yes, I can explain, but you might want to seek explanation before you go on an uninformed rant next time.
The reason tablets follow a different standard than phones is that you hold the tablet farther away from your eyes than a phone. The visibility of pixels is directly related to the distance the screen is viewed at. The whole reason anyone cares about pixel density is directly related to the visibility of pixels. Once this visibility level reaches "retina" level the image is as sharp as possible, leaving aside other factors.
