In a few words
A lot of cell phones come out every month, and you get overwhelmed pretty quickly.
Depending on the use that will be made of them, it is mandatory to compare several models with each other.The operating system is a matter of taste; on this Q31 32 GB, Lg chose Android.
If this first characteristic is not blocking for you, let’s go to the tests to find out if it is adapted to your uses.
This Q31 32 GB is not good for all uses.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.In short, if you choose it, it will be mainly for its price.

The Q31 32 GB adapted for internet use and travel ?
The intended use of your future phone is of utmost importance.Beyond its telephone function, we expect it to be as good for surfing the internet and usable when travelling.
The Q31 32 GB is almost a model.A size of 5.7 inches that would have been normal in the early days of smartphones, but not anymore.
That means it’s not practical for internet browsing.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing.This smartphone comes with GPS.You’ll appreciate not having to ask for directions anymore.Effective functionality almost everywhere.
If having several lines in the same device is essential for you, go ahead.This model does not offer dual SIM storage.If you don’t want to increase the bill on your next trip, consider replacing your national SIM with a local one.
Detail that is missing on this Q31 32 GB is the absence of reinforced glass.In other words, the scratches or the shocks that happen to us all, will inevitably appear.It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.Because of its battery, the range of this model is one of the worst.With a power of 3000 mAh, you will be forced to recharge more often.Keep your charger handy.
On the question of loading, Lg has done in the economy, that is to say without the fast charge.This is very useful when the smartphone battery is empty and you’re in a hurry.
A device for watching movies and listening to music?
The use of the telephone now exceeds that of television.A handy device for watching videos.You can also simply listen to music.Because of the power of smartphones and their connectivity, you can watch whatever you want.But not all phones are suitable for this purpose.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.He’s one of the worst in the business.An 5.7-inch screen with overly vivid colors.For information, the resolution is 720 x 1520.He’ll be more comfortable listening to music.
This includes an IPS LCD screen.The result is less light scattering, resulting in a wider viewing angle and deeper tones.
On the audio side, Lg wanted to do it right.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
Using its Bluetooth functionality, you can pair your phone with all the devices in your home (speakers, TV…).The sound result is of a good level.
On the sound side, we find that there are no stereo speakers.
Lg’s smartphone: a good choice for making video calls?
Impossible to play properly without a high-performance device.Batteries are put to the test every day due to the use of mobile internet and applications.For smooth and responsive rendering on 3D video games, it is necessary to combine a good processor with a good graphics processor.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
What came out of our tests is that the Q31 32 GB is low in power.Its Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22 (12 nm) processor is not very powerful, and the GPU is not at the expected level.The rendering at the image level is inferior to the competition.
As far as RAM is concerned, you’re at the minimum required on a smartphone.It’s 32 GB that have been installed, and that’s not much.And because Lg predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
In case you play a lot, you’re going to strain the drums.Moreover, this model is one of the least efficient at the moment.Its power of 3000 mAH will not allow you to enjoy it all day long.
It will be necessary to limit the applications installed on this smartphone.The components do not allow for a quality display.That’s gonna make it harder to read.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
Finally, and regrettably, this model does not allow for contactless payments.
What about the videos?
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.They have millions of pixels that capture details perfectly.Other important criteria must be taken into account, such as zoom, HDR function, Flash Led, Panorama mode.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.Generally speaking, Lg has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
Little progress has been made by Lg.This model thus has only one objective.
Don’t expect to see a nice picture on this Q31 32 GB; a lower photo resolution than its competitors.An image resolution of 13 Mp which will give a mediocre result.You will limit selfies with this model, because of the poor quality of the rendering.Reprocessing photos is not intuitive.You will be able to take pictures perfectly, but don’t expect high quality.
This smartphone has only 32 GB; that’s very little in terms of storage.That means you’ll have to make choices between videos, photos and applications.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
In short, the Q31 32 GB, the right choice?
Our analysis showed that this Q31 32 GB wasn’t made for all purposes.With lesser performance, it does not reach the level of the best.In the end, it’s a second choice in addition to your main smartphone.
