The specs on the UK say it does NOT.

The UK G6 Play definitely doesn't have a compass/magnetometer

Just found this thread after being consfused why my UK G6 play was not showing the compass / direction vector on Google maps - its frankly shocking that they put a gyroscope in this phone but not a magnetometer - this feature is essential, phone going back for a refund!

An absolutely bizarre omission; I believe that a magnetometer is included in the version sold in some markets (e.g. USA?)
