I've had the Q70 since late September 2019 (South Korea) - the V50 was a bit out of my price range. Honestly, it's a really good phone for anyone who's not doing anything too heavy. The camera is great for the social media tendencies of the general population. The HDR is lovely and the wide angle is great for getting in most of a spectacular view. There's a 'manual' photograph mode too, for those of us who know a little bit more about taking the perfect picture. The selfie camera is pretty good - I don't tend to take a lot of selifes, but I do video call a lot, so for what I need it for, it's great.
Resolution is good for unintensive mobile games, the colour is really nice and I can't ask for anything more from the on-board speaker. There's a microSD card slot, and the headphone jack is a plus, too.
The device itself is weightier than perhaps other phones on the market, but I for one really like that. I like knowing that my phone is in my hand, or that I can feel it in my bag without having to go look for it. Battery life is great too. If I barely use my phone through the work day, I'm heading home at about 85%. If I spend a good chunk of time playing games during my breaks, I'm going home with about 70% at the end of a 7 hour work day.
Again, I don't do much with my phone beyond what a normal person does: social media, a few pictures here and there, online shopping, and games. So if you're looking for a powerful phone without the flagship price tag, I'd say this is a good option.
Anonymous, 18 Jan 2020Headphone Jack with high quality audio, SD Card slotI guess you're illiterate because I said "apart from the sd card slot". And ohhhh noooo a slightly better jack. 24 bit audio isn't gonna kill you. It's still better than the typical 16 bit audio from most other jacks. And it certainly isn't a big enough difference to get this over the vastly superior Mi 9T Pro.
joe nodden, 29 Oct 2019Really, "Tom" (mr I don't even have an actual account on here) last time I checked I'm not the... moreNah mate the IP68 and MIL-whatever- certs are for those who would like to avoid unexpected accidents that may damage their phones and data.
If IP68 rating is only about a cheap plastic rubber then we can see it's everywhere in every phone but no, usually it's available for flagship of some big brands (ie Apple, Samsung...). And beside that, phone has holes you know? audio jack, charging port, speakers and a bunch of buttons as well, so no IP68 is not all about the rubber seal, obviously it's not useless at all (or those CEOs are idiot trying to add a cheap, useless feature in their 1000$ flagships)
You mentioned drop test, that's very good. But 5 times in the corners (which is the most vulnerable part) is pretty impressive isn't it? And aside from drop testing, you should also included:
Test Method 500 - Low Pressure (Altitude), Test Method 501 - High Temperature, Test Method 502 - Low Temperature, Test Method 503 - Temperature Shock, Test Method 504 - Contamination by Fluids,Test Method 505 - Solar Radiation (Sunshine),Test Method 506 - Rain,Test Method 507 - Humidity,Test Method 508 - Fungus,Test Method 509 - Salt Fog,Test Method 510 - Sand and Dust,Test Method 511 - Explosive Atmosphere,Test Method 512 - Immersion,Test Method 513 - Acceleration,Test Method 514 - Vibration,Test Method 515 - Acoustic Noise,Test Method 516 - Shock,Test Method 517 - Pyroshock,Test Method 518 - Acidic Atmosphere,Test Method 519 - Gunfire Shock,Test Method 520 - Temperature, Humidity, Vibration, and Altitude,Test Method 521 - Icing/Freezing Rain,Test Method 522 - Ballistic Shock,Test Method 523 - Vibro-Acoustic/Temperature,Test Method 524 - Freeze / Thaw,Test Method 525 - Time Waveform Replication,Test Method 526 - Rail Impact.Test Method 527 - Multi-Exciter,Test Method 528 - Mechanical Vibrations of Shipboard Equipment (Type I – Environmental and Type II – Internally Excited)
They're parts of the MIL-whatever-certificate. Now it doesn't seem to be so useless now does it? You should watch a youtube video to see the test environment and how they do it. It's kinda cool. LG or whoever conducts the test doesn't matter, it's global standard and they follow it, that's all.
Although I have been following gsmarena for years I just don't like the idea to create an account here, kinda waste of my time (like what I'm doing)
Well, people have their own priority so if you or any other who prefer to own a high specs phone to benchmark each other with lowest budget possible, then it's your choice and I respect that. While I would like to have a durable, reliable... device
Since there's no way for a non geek user to tell such things so the rating and certificate were created and accepted globally. And now someone to tell they're useless and not reliable, and prefer to trust some newly created Chinese brands; now which argument is more invalid?
For Indian readers that's 31,654.63 Indian Rupee
Chinese phones are cheaper but they are not reliable.I have LG Optimus One working excellent on gingerbread and have changed three Chinese brands.One fall from the bed and they are gone
Tom, 29 Oct 2019That's right keep telling yourself IP68 and MIL-STD-810G compliant are irrelevant. Go google t... moreReally, "Tom" (mr I don't even have an actual account on here) last time I checked I'm not the child who's so irresponsible that they drop their phone on the ground and in water all the time. And you're seriously mentally incompetent if you think me, someone who's been on this site for ages now, and owns an LG V30 with IP68 and MIL-STD-810G certification, wouldn't know what IP68 and MIL-STD-810G means. The IP rating is a useless rating that tests water resistance. It in no way influences how water resistant the phone actually is, and adds quite a bit to the cost, it's just a test on the rubber seals in the phone, the cheap little rubber seals that manufacturers can add and get the same water resistance if they do the tests or not, while only adding pennies to the cost. OnePlus has shown this very well. The military certification is also quite useless. In order for them to get that certification, they need to make the phone survive a total of 26 drops without much damage on each corner and face onto a 2 inch piece of plywood. (Not 26 on each, 26 total) And they can swap out the phone up to 5 times throughout the test. And it just needs to be functional with the original structural integrity intact. Almost any phone can do that. And it's not even the military testing it, it's LG who does the testing. Nice job flushing $400 down the drain on this trash. I look at the actual specs for good reason, because I'm not a gullible irresponsible child like you that calls other people children. I want a good, not slow phone with a good display, and good cameras. Your argument is so stupid it's sad.

Kids these days only think of playing games in their phone or something? All they could see is a flagship processor and big ass RAM
FYI I bought this phone in Korea for 469k won which is around 400$, totally acceptable
This phone has call and text function right? wehehehe.
a, 23 Oct 2019Yes. Buy Chinese smartphones and support communism as much as you want.LMAO

Apart from the military certification. This is absolute trash. Name one single spec that's worse about the cheaper Mi 9T Pro apart from the sd card slot and irrelevant military certification.
Asu, 28 Sep 2019Oled nowadays aren't that badppl say those things even a few years ago, but Ive seen even galaxy note 9 has screen burn
This is actually a nice phone with decent specs, IP rating and MIL-STD-810G cert, and don't forget 4000mah battery. Cheap chinese phones have those features? Nope. So it's not that overpriced. Stop your whining.
Hi..., 02 Sep 2019Bcoz LG (upper class brand)positioning their product above Chinese phone. I agree bro
Nice phone with dedicated microSD slot and IP68
