Good value for money
Considering the phone offers dual SIM, extra memory through microSD slot and the price tag was under AU$300, I cannot really complain. I think it is good value for money, but if I would use it as my primary phone, I would not be very happy. The camera app lags occasionally, battery life is not more than a day (if you're lucky) and the RAM falls behind - it can get very slow at times.
After a year of ownership, as if the device was programmed to crash. I ran into software issues where the device occasionally gets stuck on the fast boot screen....This issue turned into a permanent failure of booting and it cannot be even turned off resulting in drainage of the internal battery. I spent several hours trying to get it fixed as it is not worth sending to the repair centre in Sydney. LG Bridge seems to be the tool through which I might get lucky (pending battery recharge), but I will probably look for a different device in future with more RAM. Support was responsive and helpful even though we could not resolve the issue remotely.
Ok for $200 Australian
Purchased LGQ6 around 4 months ago , battery life fairly poor at 1 day when regular use , easy to use with alots of functions comparable to iphone , some issues with compatibility but for $200 great for the money
Serviceable phone with utterly rubbish battery life.
Battery won't last a day of zero use. Does the job if you don't mind keeping it turned off when you are not using it. Shame, because otherwise it's an OK phone.
best all round mobile phone
who needs an apple iphone when you have the LG Q6 thats all you need for Picture quality Call quality Sound quality Battery life and size..the LGQ6 is simple and easy to use.

Good value for the price
Bought this for $219 at Officeworks a couple weeks ago. Performance is inferior to flagships (S8 or Iphone 8) but can't complain for its price, I put a 64gig sd card in there and it works great. It looks like a google pixel 3 actually, people won't know your this phone is 1/3-1/4 of a flagship.

OK for the price
I purchased this phone 5 months ago.
I'm pretty satisfied with it overall. The menus are easy to understand. I like the camera front and back.
It is a good basic phone without all the bells and whistles that does most of the things my old phone did. Battery life is good. Internal and additional memory capability is also good.
A couple of glaring omissions drop the rating down.
There is no indication on the phone when the phone is asleep for any messages or missed phone calls.
I was surprised that there is no NFC capability. I used that...
Happy owner. Good value but no iPhone
I bought this with modest expectations and its exceeded them so far. Camera is fine although not on a par with an iPhone, a bit blurry at times. Struggled to find a case as most stores dont have LG, but got one online. Apps working fine. Battery life also acceptable. I'd say its good value at $250 and below.

A great budget option if you can get it at a good price!
I managed to buy this phone for $208 from Officeworks (price beat from JB Hi Fi's $219 price), and for that price it's a good phone, with a decent camera (under good lighting conditions), good performance (with 3GB RAM), support for two SIM cards and a micro-SD card. It has a bright, good quality display with very thin bezels, making the phone look more premium than it actually is. It's a good offering for the price and has everything you would need in a phone, provided you don't expect it to play the most intensive games. If you decide to get ...this phone, you would be giving up features like dual rear cameras and a fingerprint scanner (though the phone does have facial recognition). I also (personally) find LG's UI a little ugly, though this can be fixed by downloading a different launcher. One other thing I don't like is that the phone's back is made of cheap-feeling and easily-scratched plastic. It's probably wise to invest in a case for this phone. I can't really say that these negatives are particularly bad, though, because at $208 you get what you pay for. As long as you don't spend LG's asking price of $399 for this phone (at that price there are much better alternatives), this phone is a great option for the budget-conscious consumer.

LG-Q6. the fact that this is a cheaper, affordable mobile phone makes it better because it basically has everything you need plus a lot more. I use to have the LG Zero which was a limited promo release for Austria only few years back. Very pricey but a great phone. However, the Q6, is very similar and because this is a newer model, it has more to offer. I'm very happy with it.
Great, compact and affordable.
Good little phone, only usual app crashes associated with android.
Sleek and customizable design with a good battery life.
Issues I have with this phone is the speaker during calls is a little awkward, (on the back of the phone, so in public if you can hear the caller so can whoever is near you) and the camera quality (specifically the motion blur) is disappointing for a phone with such high resolution. So if you're not interested in taking too many photos its fine.
Compact n trendy
Got everything that you look for in a smart phone but for a great price.love the camera quality.its super fast and got eveything those expensive phones has.its very compact which I love as I hate bulky phones.definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a smart phone.battery also last longer than my nokiai used previously.
Excellent product with easy to use simple menu
Prior to purchasing the LG Q6 mobile phone I had an LG P875 for about 3 years. I went for a new LG as I knew the LG menu and I did not have any problems with my previous LG.
The new LP I purchased from JB HI FI a couple of months ago and since that time I can only say it is just an excellent phone at a reasonable price and does all I need it to do. I find it quick - the phone speaker excellent and their is nothing wrong with the camera.
Overall an excellent product at a reasonable price.
Questions & Answers
How is the GPS? Does it lock on to location quickly? Does it run Google maps well?
it's a bit slower to lock on than the iPhone i used to have. Still acceptable for me but if you are sensitive to this maybe worth testing one. I did have one experience driving where the map directions kept losing position and sending me on a bit of a goose chase, but that was in the hills/countryside so I'm not sure if it was the phone's gps or maybe the mobile reception.
I find the GPS locator OK. I have limited experience with Iphone and none for several years. I use Google maps a lot and there doesn't seem to be any noticeable lag.
