10.LG Q6

One of the first phone to come up with 18:9 Full view display at this price segment. The minimal bezels makes the phone very compact and comfortable to hold. It is really a premium experience to look at this beautiful screen. A big disappointment in the phone is the lack of the fingerprint scanner, which is now common in all the phones. To compensate it, the phone comes with Face recognition unlock, which works in ideal conditions but fails most of the times when the lighting is low and when the face has some accessories.
