Looking closely at the above specs comparison table, you would notice that they two LG flagship devices share quite a lot of similarities. However, the difference do very much exist. Looking at the table, it will reveal that the display sceeeen of the LG V30 bigger than that of the LG G6. Likewise the dual rear camera, the processor, the OS, and even the Corning Gorilla Glass screen protection.

Therefore, it is safe to conclude that the LG V30 trumps the LG G6 and is currently LG’s best smartphone. In my opinion, the LG V30 if given good PR and pushed sufficiently to smartphone markets across the world, could give the Samsung Galaxy S8 a good rivalry. The LG V30 got the specs, and also the price to go toe-to-toe with the Galaxy S8 and come out triumphant. I guess we would be pitching the two devices against each other in our next device comparison. Stay tuned.
