LG G6 vs Apple iPhone 7 Plus vs OnePlus 3T: specs comparison showdown


The LG G6 is finally here and it seems to be pretty close to that no-compromise smartphone that LG lovers have been lusting after for a while now. 

Modular design is out — this one-off experiment proved to be unpopular with the regular Joes out there and didn't really kick off. Instead, LG has opted for a full-metal, water-resistant body that really differs from everything else that LG has come up with so far. Probably the biggest highlight of the G6 is its screen size in relation to the front of the phone - it's one of the most efficient devices in this regard. There's also that dual-camera setup at the back, as well as a not-too-shabby hardware setup that hints at the exceptional performance.

But is this a reason enough to prematurely crown the G6 as the best phone out there? Hardly. If anything, it has a lot of competition, like the iPhone 7 Plus, which is among the best phones you can get right now, and the OnePlus 3T, one of the best value-for-money devices out there. Both of these will likely give the G6 a run for its money, so let's jump right into it and compare how the three stack up in terms of specs.
