The displays of both smartphones are good but the Q6 stands out since its main feature is its FullVision display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and a 2160 x 1080 resolution. For this aspect, the Q6 wins since it gives users a better watching experience with its display. If you want to have a smartphone with slimmer bezels, then go for the Q6.
In terms of overall performance, the GR5 2017 has the upper hand since it has a better CPU and GPU. Checking from their Antutu scores, we can see that there is a significant difference between the two smartphones’ performance. The GR5 2017’s Kirin 655 chipset outperforms the Snapdragon 435 of the Q6. The SD435 chipset, however, has faster LTE support which gives off faster data speed.
As for its camera performance, both of their front cameras have a wide-angle lens so users can easily take selfie shots that can cover a wide area. You can check out our review of the LG Q6 and the Huawei GR5 2017 to check out their photo qualities.
