Both smartphones improve on their predecessors largely by way of memory, with the G6+ getting 128GB of storage, a substantial upgrade from the 32GB on offer on the G6. Meanwhile, the Q6+ comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage from the regular version’s 3GB and 32GB. The former also has NFC, which is pretty convenient.
Of course, these upgrades come at a higher price. The LG G6+ sets you back P32,990 (around $644), while the LG Q6+ hits stores with a P14,990 ($293) price tag. The G6 and Q6 currently sell for P29,990 ($586) and P12,990 ($254), respectively.
More memory for not a lot of moolah sounds great and all, but do keep in mind these devices use the same outdated Qualcomm processor from 2016 in the Snapdragon 821 (G6+) and 435 (Q6+).

You also have to wonder about the LG V30’s disappearing act in the Philippines. The warmly welcomed Korean flagship has been available in other markets since September, but LG has yet to confirm a local release.

Though that shouldn’t come as a surprise, considering these new Plus models took months to hit the market. The LG G6+ and Q6+ were launched globally in June and July, respectively. In comparison, the LG G6 was unveiled internationally in March 2017 and arrived in the Philippines in April. The LG V20, on the other hand, was announced globally in October 2016 and landed here on the same month.
