We can all agree on the fact that Samsung has come a long way in the smartphone business. Starting with the Galaxy S, although a plastic almost cheap phone, it came with good specs, a good enough camera and most importantly, the most vibrant display to date, AMOLED panel. Today we have two top-notch smartphones from Samsung, the Galaxy S8 and Note 8 with edge display with stretched aspect ratio and camera/s that can do photographic wonders.
Meanwhile, LG hasn’t been doing that great with LG admitting that G6 wasn’t a success, and the LG V30 promising a lot more but bringing nothing new to the table. Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will be launched in 2018 so as the LG G7. Why don’t we take a quick look at what they have to offer and who comes out on top?
