The Z6 is one of the best processing powerhouses in its segment thanks to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 695. The 120Hz refresh rate screen and up to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM round out the device's hardware specifications. The 50MP primary camera isn't particularly good, but it's compensated for by the Z6's excellent battery life.

In our review, we found the Snapdragon 680 to be slightly underpowered in comparison to the competition. Despite this, it has the camera hardware to distinguish itself, thanks to a 108MP primary sensor and an 8MP ultra-wide shooter.

A 120Hz panel provides additional smoothness on top of that. The 50MP primary sensor, which is supported by a capable 8MP ultra-wide, adds the finishing touches to the triple cameras. A 5,000mAh battery makes the F23 5G a long-lasting device, while the 25W charging solution effectively charges it. The phone runs Android 12 and comes with a three-year warranty on software updates.
