Shoot your favourites your way with the new LG K-Series

With a sea of new devices launched ever more frequently, it is not surprising that the question of which cellphone to commit yourself to can be quite daunting and anxiety-provoking. The phrase “I have left my upgrade so late because I don’t know where to start” is not uncommon in the industry. Price vs features and capability are also always top up mind. With the new K-series release, I believe LG has found a happy medium between features and price. The new range offers a premium user experience without breaking the bank. In my opinion, the new K-series provides a compelling argument to sway attention from other popular brands – so, let’s dive in.

The two models currently on offer through Cellucity are the LG K41S and the higher spec’d LG K61. What I found so impressive is the build quality of both devices. Robust yet light, my first impression was these devices can take a knock – and I was not wrong. Both devices are rated MIL-STD-810G – having gone through rigorous testing, including drop and shock tests. These two devices are durable.
For the Netflix and social content fans out there, both devices offer an immersive viewing experience with LG’s FullVision display offering amongst the slimmest bezels out there. The LG K41S offers a 6.55-inch HD+ display while you will get a 6.53-inch FHD+ screen both with scratch-resistant glass.

The camera is where both devices shine. Both the LG K61 and the K41s have quad rear cameras including wide, ultrawide, macro and depth lenses. The LG K61 is the more expensive option possessing a 48MP+8MP+2MP+5MP quad-camera whereas the LG K41S you will get a 13MP+5MP+2MP+2MP rear camera. Selfie wise you can expect a 16MP on the K61 and an 8MP on the LG K41S. The camera was responsive and easy to use on both devices and included some super cool extra features which I loved. In the day and age of point and shoot the performance of the two cameras, for me, left no doubt that if I needed to capture a snap at the spur of the moment, I would not struggle.

Both models come with a whopping 4000mAh battery, ensuring that these phones will last through the day with no problems. They each have an Octa-Core Mediatek processers with the LG K61 clocking slightly higher at 2.3GHz versus the LG K41S at 2.0GHz. The LG K61 has 4GB RAM and 64GB onboard memory while the LG K41s has 3GB RAM and 32GB onboard. One may feel with such good cameras that the internal memory may be a bit low. But, these devices both can support up to 2-terabytes expanded memory. The point here is that on either device you are receiving respectable memory backed up by excellent performance at a fantastic price.

Finally, both devices offer security in the form of a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. For me, this far outperforms the side fingerprint sensor and is more intuitive – it just makes sense.

Price-wise, the LG K41S, comes in at an incredible R3499 with the LG K61 retailing for R5999. On a 24-month contract, you can get the LG K41S starting from just R199 per month and the LG K61 from R349 per month.

These two devices offer value with premium functionality at an excellent price. They have a slick design, superb build quality, powerful batteries and excellent processing performance. Throw in the brilliant cameras, and you really cannot ask for anymore. LG has beefed up on the basics and has produced two solid models which I believe will be amongst the most asked for devices in the coming months.

LG Q6 Review

Let’s be upfront here – a mid-range phone is never going to be as fast or powerful as their more expensive counterparts. That does not mean they don’t have a trick or two few up their sleeves. The LG Q6 has a few to make this a serious consideration.

Let’s start with design. Featuring a 5.5-inch Full HD display, LG has incorporated its Full Vision technology from the flagship G6 into the Q6. So, what? This type of screen to body ratio is something you would normally only see in the likes of Flagship models like the LG G6 and Samsung S8. This is a big deal! Ideal for streaming video content, gaming and social media. Honestly this is a feature alone puts the LG Q6 miles ahead of its mid-range competition.

On the build side, the LG Q6 frame is made from 7000 series aluminium making it strong and durable – it’s able to take a knock! Unfortunately, the back is made of plastic and seems prone to scratches. I would advise investing in a protective cover.

The LG Q6 camera has some cool features. I found it super easy to use, filters were available even before you took the shot and response time was excellent. Also useful was the, easy to find, timer function.

 

The knock out? The additional camera modes and functions:

Snap Shot
The ability to Snap a shot and preview it immediately.

Grid Shot
Allows you to take four snaps which come together in a collage immediately – very cool for social media users and creatives alike.

Match Shot
My favourite. This allows you to take two different pictures right after each other – one with the rear camera and one with the front “selfie” camera. With all the hype around the Nokia 8’s #Bothie function I am renaming this feature on the LG the “Almostie”- not quite like the Nokia but pretty darn close!

For Uploading
LG Q6 pictures can be directly uploaded to various platforms without having to crop or edit.

The front camera on the LG Q6 comes in at a standard 13MP with the selfie camera coming in a slightly disappointing 5MP but the wide angle option makes it a little more appealing. Add to this the long list of cool camera functions above and you can understand why LG made the compromise!

That is not enough though – LG have really put the Q6 through its paces. It has passed military standard tests for durability including tests through humidity, temperature, mechanical shock, sand and dust. The battery was also put through stringent tests and LG have put a thermal pad cooling system into key components to minimize overheating.

Missing on this device however is a fingerprint scanner – a feature that is so last season anyway. LG have instead opted for the new wonder feature – facial recognition. Jury is still out on mass adoption of this but it is again feature usually reserved for flagship devices.

The LG Q6 offers you a beautiful and durable design full of features, functions and nifty camera modes. In its category, the Q6 will certainly give the competition a run for your money!

Get the awesome LG Q6 for R6099 prepaid or from R379 per month on a Flexi 200 contract with Vodacom . (Both offers INCLUDE, Free Watch, R1000 cash back and R699 Game Collection). LG Q6 #LiveOutOfBounds
