Samsung’s Galaxy S8 And LG’s G6 – Two Of The Best Androids On The Market

Over the last couple of months, I’ve been spending some quality time with two fantastic new Android smartphones, the LG G6 and the Samsung Galaxy S8. Both phones have their strengths and unique features but very few shortcomings. In fact, they’re two of the most refined smartphones I’ve ever tested and I’ve tested literally hundreds.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is a super-powerful device packing the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and a super-punchy and high res Super AMOLED display with a 2960×1440 resolution and a highly polished (literally) design.

The LG G6 is powered by Qualcomm’s previous generation Snapdragon 821 but that’s also a very fast processing platform. The G6 also has a gorgeous thin-bezel display with fantastic fit and finish with machined aluminum and also have very high resolution wide-aspect display with 2880×1440 resolution.

From my LG G6 coverage: “There’s absolutely no question about it. LG obviously launched the new LG G6 right in the middle of the marketing buzzsaw that is Samsung’s Galaxy S8 launch. And while it’s fair to compare the G6 against the backdrop of the Samsung dynamic duo, some of the reviews I’ve seen so far, in my humble opinion, are unnecessarily critical of LG, largely due to timing I think. Since when did we become so jaded, like undercover restaurant critics in our own inner circle, that we can’t judge a product based on its own merits?”

And that’s exactly what we do at HotHardware, here for the LG G6 and here for the Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+.
