Here is an experiment - comparing side by side the top flagships of 2017 namely, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the LG G6. Which one is the better choice for those who are looking for a new smartphone in terms of speed, hardware, and other criteria? Forget about the design because the two looks identical anyway. Shun away the "scientific" tests and benchmarking as well because this comparison was done scenario-based, plain view method.

One of the biggest "setback" for LG G6 is when it raced against time and decided to employ the 2016 Snapdragon 821 processor. LG shortcuts to get ahead of its rival Samsung. In fact, the compromise was so effective that LG G6 made it before Samsung announced the Galaxy S8.

On the contrary Samsung Galaxy S8 took on the LG G6 when it packed the latest Snapdragon 835 chip. Not only that it features the latest from Qualcomm, but Galaxy S8 is, in fact, the ONLY next-gen smartphone to sport the 835. LG G6 is clearly behind when it comes to what is under the hood.

Now taking both Samsung Galaxy S8 and the LG G6 under "unscientific" side by side test, the blunt truth was revealed. Remember that unscientific method means putting both units under same circumstances, powering them up to check boot times, loading apps and so on. The test that is so plain, straightforward, and simple.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has benefited from the Snapdragon 835 chip because it appears to boot faster than the LG G6. When used for gaming purposes or opening apps, the Samsung S8 took the lead as well. There are indications that Galaxy S8 will also fare better when loading web pages compared to G6 too.

At any rate, it is prudent to stress over and over again that the test was done without the aid of wires nor special tools. The Samsung Galaxy S8 may have taken the lead in the race but the margin isn't that significant. LG G6 is still a legit rival and can get along very well.
