LG Q6+, Q6, Q6a vs Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 vs Nokia 6: specs comparison


LG just announced the Q-lineup of devices, featuring the Q6, the Q6+, and the Q6a, which takes a few pages from the LG G6' book and borrows that FullVision 2:1 display that LG is quite proud of

Granted, the efficient screen-to-body size ratio, the slim bezels, and the lack of a camera bump at the rear of the device could very well be the biggest highlights of the Q6 lineup, as the rest of the hardware specs are not exactly what we'd call exciting and awe-inspiring. On top of that, the lack of fingerprint scanners on any of these devices is a let-down, but LG has been kind enough to throw facial recognition to alleviate the pain.

We'll explore the specs in a jiffy, but before that, let's try to think of two other phones that could easily be the main rivals of the LG Q6. Although it's debatable, we'd put the 2017 iteration of the Galaxy A5 and the Nokia 6 as some note-worthy and "hot" devices that the Q6 will be competing against. So, here's a specs comparison between these three!

Have in mind that the Q6+, Q6, and Q6a are pretty much similar in specs with the only difference being the amount of RAM and storage inside each one, so we've bundled them together in one and the same column right below:
