Battle of the Snapdragons: Moto Z2 Force Edition vs Galaxy S8+ vs OnePlus 5 vs LG G6 specs comparison


The Moto Z2 Force is official, and of course, this commands a specs comparison with the rest of the flagships out there, namely the profound troopers the Galaxy S8, the OnePlus 5, and the HTC U11 all are.

We called this one "Battle of the Snapdragons", and it's pretty fitting, given that they all have Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 on deck. 

That's the common denominator here, but how do the rest of the specs compare? There's literally nothing stopping us from finding out, so let's just jump right into it!

S8 wins in nearly every area, with exception to real world performance though lol.

"... they all have Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 on deck." and then you put G6 with SD821. What kind of sorcery is this?

Was about to point that out, Lyngdoh. You beat me to it. PA's news/info consistency is a joke... About time the author corrects that statement, as the G6 definitely doesn't have the Snapdragon 835 on deck.

The article even says it's comparing the Z2 Force to the S8+, OP5, and HTC 11, LMAO

I get that, @Rampage_Taco Since that is the case, then the LG G6 shouldn't have included in this comparison altogether... I think.

The G6 doesn't belong because of it's Processor and The S8+ should've been replaced by the S8 so all of the phones would have a similar sized sceen

Kinda unfair to include the LG G6 in this comparison, for obvious reasons.

Did you even do your homework at all Peter K.? This site is in desperate need of an editor. At times I feel the writers are trolling us worse than trolls in the comments.
