LG Optimus F6 is an interesting Android phone, which features a fast 1200 megahertz Dual-Core CPU, a 4.5" capacitive screen, a 5 MP back camera and a 1.3 megapixels front facing camera.

LG decided to equip this cellphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8930 system chip, backed up by a powerful Dual-Core CPU ticking at 1200 megahertz with 1 GB of RAM. To handle graphic intensive applications, it also has a 450 MHz Adreno 305 GPU. The LG Optimus F6 comes with a moderate 4 GB internal memory, which is enough for most users considering the LG Optimus F6 also has a slot for an external memory card .

This device is quite slim and looks really nice, although it's not close to being one of the thinnest devices out there, with a thickness of 0.4". Whereas this device just has 5.03" long and 2.59 inches wide, it manages to contain a 4.5 inches display. This phone is much lighter than what one would expect from a cellphone like this.

This cellphone is equipped with two cameras, a 5 MP back side camera and a 1.3 MP front side camera. It also captures videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD). This camera also features a couple of good characteristics: flash, HDR mode, auto-focus and geo tagging.

LG designed this cellphone with a good looking 4.5" display, and a 960 x 540 resolution, which makes all photos and videos look very good. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

The LG Optimus F6 has a large 2460 mAh removable battery, enough to provide this cellphone with an amazing battery life. According to LG, this phone has an estimated 408 hours stand by time and a 19.5 hs talk time.

The LG Optimus F6 provides wi-fi connectivity (which can be provided to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE high speed data connection or the fastest 3G internet connection, using HSPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This cellphone works with a SIM card to use GSM services.

This phone also comes with many interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS Navigation, Infrared Transmitter, Near Field Communication (NFC) and TV Broadcast, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.
