If you’ve listened to my podcast of late, you know I’ve been happily using the LG Q6 for about a month and it has been a delight to have a daily driver (minus that scrappy speaker). LG’s Android software has become more and more useful the longer I use it. To add to even more to its repertoire I recently discovered that the Q6 is capable of taking RAW photos. The ability to shoot RAW requires your device have Android’s camera2 API and that is a feature that you almost never find on lower end devices like the Q6 with a Snapdragon 435 processor. Bonus!
It is becoming a rare thing to have a user replaceable battery on a smartphone these days. Personally, I love the option to easily replace an old battery or simply have the option to swap in a fully charged battery in just a few minutes time versus having to charge up. If you do have the option it can be difficult to find a good replacement battery on eBay, which a lot of the time is the only place they are available.
