Over the past few years, LG have made some valiant attempts to make their presence. But on most occasions things did not go in the way they would have liked to see. And to make things look better, LG this year has distinctly focused on the design and the hardware of the smartphones which is clearly evident in the lately launched LG G6. So as we have come across the first look of the LG, let’s have a look at how things have changed from it previously launched LG V20.
LG G6 vs LG V20 : Design
The first and foremost thing that catches the attention of the consumers is the design o a smartphone. And it seems by the looks of the LG G6 that it is certainly going to one of the most-sought after smartphones. This is because the first look that we have got reveals the fact that smartphone is going to be a lightweight one. While LG V20 weighs around 174 gm, LG G6 is about 163 gm. Clearly it has an advantage over the earlier launched V20. The built of the smartphone has been upgraded as well. From the Aluminium body in LG V20, LG has shifted to metal and glass body in the G6. So that makes the smartphone extremely durable and that is something that is a real upgrade from its earlier released smartphones.
LG G6 vs LG V20 : Display
There isn’t much of a difference between LG G6 and LG V20 when it comes to the screen dimensions. Both the smartphones have screens of 5.7 inches. The LG G6 comes with a support for the display resolution of 1440 x 2880 pixels while the LG V20 supports a display resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. A negligible upgrade is noticeable which is not at all a significant. While LG V20 has a Corning Gorilla Glass 4 covering, LG G6 has got a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 covering. Also, LG G6 has given away the concept of secondary display. And instead of that, the developers have brought in Dolby Vision. In fact, it is believed that LG G6 is going to be the first smartphone with Dolby Vision technology incorporated on it. The Always-On display has been added besides the upgrade from the LG UX 5.0 in V20 to LG UX 6.0 UI. So despite the fact that LG hasn’t brought up too much of a change in the display of LG G6, there few tweaks which will make the display of the LG G6 much better than the LG V20.
LG G6 vs LG V20 Processor
It is in the processor that LG G6 is going to be a disappointment for those who estimated something better from LG in the latest flagship device. LG G6 comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor while LG V20 sported the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. Very little change can be noticed, which is obviously a disappointment for all the LG fans. It’s not that we all expected huge because we all know that Samsung Galaxy S8 is going to be the first smartphone with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. Still there will be the lack of the best available chipset in the smartphone. So in this department there is going to be a tie between LG G6 and LG V20 as the South-Korea based smartphone developer failed to bring in the desired upgrade. Both LG G6 and LG V20 will run on an Android 7.0 Nougat operating system.
LG G6 vs LG V20 Camera
There is a major upgrade in the rear camera of the LG G6 as the developers have packed the rear camera with the wide-angle lens that will definitely enhance the photography experience of the users from what used to be in the LG V20. The smartphone will have a dual-lens camera both of 13 megapixels on the back. LG V20 did have a dual lens setup on the back of the device but it does not have the wide-angle lens. So this is something that will rank LG G6 ahead of LG V20. The front camera of LG G6 will be of 5 megapixels and sport the wide-angle lens as well. While the rear camera has a 125-degree viewing angle the one on the front has got 100-degree viewing angle. Also there will be a number of additional features very much like the LG V20. But it is going to be the wide-angle lens that will make the difference between LG G6 and LG V20.
Both LG G6 and LG V20 have got 4 GB RAM which is expandable up to 256 GB via microSD card. Hence there isn’t going to be much of a difference between these two smartphones when it comes to storage facilities.
LG G6 is evidently backed up by a 3,300 mAh Li-ion battery while LG V20 is backed up by a 3,200 mAh one. So once again there is very little to choose from when it comes to the battery back-up.
There are few things that are significantly different in LG G6 from the LG V20. LG has announced that the lately launched device is going to come with an IP68 certification which will make the smartphone protected from dust and water. LG V20 has a MIL-STD-810G certification which makes the smartphone shock-resistant. Other than this there is nothing noticeably different as far as the features of the LG G6 and LG V20 are concerned. Even the location of the Fingerprint scanner remains to be the same. And both the smartphones with a Quickcharge 3.0 technology incorporated within it.
LG G6 vs LG V20 : Price
LG G6 is definitely going to be priced at a higher rate than LG V20 although nothing has been mentioned by LG during the launch of the smartphone. And stay stunned for any update regarding that.
It seems that LG G6 will be one of the most sought-after smartphones in the near future in spite of the fact that there are number of things which will definitely not satisfy many. But then there are things like the camera which is bound to attract the attention of the users. And if you are a fan of LG, surely it is advisable that you opt for this latest smartphone for there are a number of things which have been upgraded from the LG V20.
