LG Optimus F6 Review
The Optimus F6 is equipped with a rather beefy 2460mAh battery for a mid-range device. Without a high end processor or a pixel dense display that should be more than adequate to get users through a day. LG claims 8 hours of talk time and over 2 weeks of standby.
As you would expect LG has made some compromises to keep the Optimus F6 affordable, but for a mid-range device they have put together an overall nice package. The device is well-built, has a good display for its class and incorporates many of the software features from LG’s higher end devices. While the camera performance wasn’t great, it was acceptable for Instagram and Facebook shots, and the call quality was outstanding. It was rightly overshadowed during the G2 announcement, but if you’re in the market for an affordable, mid-range device the Optimus F6 is worth a look.
Software version D50010b
- Exceptional call quality
- Good fit and finish
- Camera performance is underwhelming
- Software can be cluttered at times, and eats much of the phone’s small internal memory

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.
