Get up to 2 years Warranty

The LG Q9 is a new smartphone which is just a reincarnation of an old one – LG G7 Fit. This is a rampant practice engaged in by a bunch of other OEMs where a former product is rebranded as a new one. You can tell from the old SoC inside the smartphone that it is not quite an entirely new release. However, the smartphone does have pretty impressive specs like that of an old flagship anyway. Also, the smartphone you’ve got here is dust resistant and waterproof making it quite a rugged piece of device.

Design and Display

The smartphone does not have an elaborate design just a plain rear finish available in black and blue dotted by a circular camera with a tiny bit of flash below it. In addition, there is a well-positioned fingerprint scanner and a Q9 branding at the bottom as well as LG’s logo which is farther down. Over to the front, there is an iPhone X kind of notch and well-sized chin just to the bottom. All of these weighs just 158g which is quite a lightweight considering it even has an IP68 certification.

LG follows the big screen trend on the Q9 which has a flat out 6.1-inch.LCD beauty lined by quite thin bezels. There are punchy colours on display and it also supports HDR10 content that looks very much appealing. You could also see how good the display is from the 1440 x 3120 pixels resolution offering detailed visuals.

Battery and Camera

When it comes to battery capacity, the LG Q9 is a mediocre at best. The 3, 000mAh battery can cope with the usual day’s work but a prolonged power draining usage will cut that short significantly.

Furthermore, expansion is allowed up to a staggering 512GB and it also features Android 8.1 Oreo with LG UI on top.
