From the above comparison, we can conclude why LG G6 is better than S8 from three specific aspects.


  1. Design

LG G6 and S8 have 5.7 inch and 5.8 inch display size respectively which are just good size. However, what makes LG G6 a winner is the location of its fingerprint which places a round target right underneath the camera lens, while the S8’s is awkwardly located right next to the camera lens, which could result in smudging.


  1. Camera

Camera may be the most important feature that makes LG G6 stands out from many other mobile phones. It features dual 13-MP cameras on the back. One of the lenses captures impressive wide-angle shots, and you get a 2x optical zoom. Compare to it, S8 only has a 12-MP dual-pixel camera on the back. Although the pixel of LG G6 on the front seems not better than S8, it supports Gesture Shot, allowing you to take a selfie with just a gesture and it also can snap wide-angle images.  


  1. Price and value

Price and value must be the essential reason for most people to buy G6 rather than S8. Given that the G6 is on-par with S8 in almost every aspect (performance, design, battery…), it is a good choice to possess a G6 at a relatively lower price. Prices vary from different countries, but generally speaking, S8 is more expensive than G6. The difference of price lies in $30 to $100.

If you are more price-oriented, why not buy a LG G6.
