The iPhone 8 has officially been announced, and we’re taking a look at how well the latest “Standard” iPhone stands up against the competition. This time around, we’re taking a look at the LG G6 to help you decide which option is better in the long run.
Unlike Android OEM’s, Apple is usually pretty hush, hush about the specs for its devices, save for the screen size, processor, and camera. However, we already know a bit about the iPhone 8, as the device features a 4.7-inch LCD display, compared to the 5.7-inch IPS LCD panel found on the LG G6.
As for the rest of the specs, we know that the iPhone 8 comes equipped with Apple’s new A11 Bionic processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. The amount of RAM seems like something you would see out of a budget phone, and this sentiment rings true considering the fact that the LG G6 comes equipped with double that amount at 4GB of RAM along with the Snapdragon 821.
When it comes to the camera, the iPhone 8 features a single 12MP rear sensor, which includes phase detection autofocus and OIS. Unlike the iPhone 8, the LG G6 features a dual-camera system, complete with dual 13MP sensors complete with OIS and phase detection autofocus. The big sell here for LG is the secondary wide-angle lens included on the G6, while the primary sensor provides users with “normal” camera shots and angles.
Other than the cameras, the iPhone 8 includes the ability to wirelessly charge via an inductive Qi charging pad. Meanwhile, LG has also included wireless charging on the LG G6, thanks to the included Qi technology found in the rear of the device.
