As an introduction to this analysis
When it comes to comparing smartphones with each other, you have several options.Depending on the use that will be made of them, it is mandatory to compare several models with each other.The Q31 32 GB detailed in this article uses an Android operating system, with all that that implies.
Now let’s see the results of our situational testing.
This Q31 32 GB is not good for all uses.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.

What does mobility look like?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times.Beyond its telephone function, we expect it to be as good for surfing the internet and usable when travelling.
Q31 32 GB’s really small.A modest 5.7-inch screen, which on the other hand is easier to fit in a pocket and easier to hold.
That means it’s not practical for internet browsing.Watching movies will be less enjoyable.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.
Also note that wifi will be available to accompany you.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing.There’s GPS on this phone.You’ll appreciate not having to ask for directions anymore.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
Considered as a gadget by some, it does not manage packages or multiple operators.There is only one SIM card slot here.With a national package, you will be forced abroad to take out your card and put another local one in its place.
We found out that this Q31 32 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or shocks that can occur during the lifetime of all smartphones.If you decide on this model, remember to use a transparent tempered glass film, adapted to the shape of the screen.
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.You’ll think about having an external battery backup nearby.
And since Lg did not consider it useful to put a fast charge on this model, we will have to wait.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
The right model for multimedia use?
The use of the telephone now exceeds that of television.A handy device for watching videos.It even replaces the radio, or to listen to music.Access to the network allows you to watch a video stream whenever you feel like it.However, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.
We would have liked the Q31 32 GB to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.It’s hard to watch a video.A resolution which is moreover in 720 x 1520.At the limit, it will be suitable for listening to music.
The on-board technology at the display level is the LCD IPS.That is to say that it offers very good colours and very wide viewing angles.
For the audio part, Lg wanted to do well.This model has a 3.5mm jack input, and allows your phone to play good quality music.
To transfer the sound from the phone, you will have the option via bluetooth.A technology that ensures quality sound.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
The right choice to play online?
Games are performance consuming.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.For smooth and responsive rendering on 3D video games, it is necessary to combine a good processor with a good graphics processor.In other words, the power of the technical components is essential to enjoy the game phases.
Our tests put this Q31 32 GB at the bottom of the list in terms of power.Its Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22 (12 nm) processor is not very powerful, and the GPU is not at the expected level.Which makes it look just passable.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.This model has 32 GB, which is low.Knowing that some users need more space, Lg has provided a free space for an extension.
Please note that in intensive use, the battery may not hold.The endurance of this model is one of the weakest.Its 3000 mAH power will force you to recharge before the end of the day.
Performance and good display were expected for the possible applications of this model.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
Finally, it should be noted that NFC (contactless payment) is not possible with this smartphone.
Concerning audio or video use?
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.They have millions of pixels that capture details perfectly.The ability to stabilize at the time of shooting or the Burst mode are also important points.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Lg has a long history of designing quality products.
Little progress has been made by Lg.This model thus has only one objective.
The resolution of this model is not very efficient.A photo resolution of 13 Mp which gives a low quality result.We do not recommend this device to anyone who regularly selfies with their smartphone.The editing function is out of date.You will be able to take pictures perfectly, but don’t expect high quality.
This device contains only 32 GB of storage space; less than most.Forget about your music and movies, in addition to your many applications.To put it plainly, you will have to make room regularly or your memory will be saturated.
The Q31 32 GB in conclusion
Following our tests, we see that this Q31 32 GB is not good for all cases.With lesser performance, it does not reach the level of the best.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.
