HTC U11 vs Galaxy S8 vs LG G6: a three-way specs comparison!

8

In case you've missed the news, the HTC's U11 flagship is now official. 

The latest and greatest device HTC has ever come up with is a true powerhouse, equipped with the speedy Snapdragon 835, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. A 5.5" Quad HD display is making the rounds up front, while a 3,000mAh non-removable battery is keeping the show going. A 12MP UltraPixel camera at the back is completing the specs sheet.

This phone will have the arduous task of battling with the South-Korean superstars - the Galaxy S8/S8+ and the LG G6. Either of these are among the very best Android phones you can get right now, so they are naturally in the sights of the HTC U11. Does it have what it takes to wage war on these and come out unscathed?
