LG G6 vs OnePlus 3T: First look
With that said, and apart from all its fresh luster, what more does the LG G6 have to offer when compared to a similarly spec'd phone, say, last year's excellent OnePlus 3T, which too is powered by the SD 821?
The OnePlus 3T, on the other hand, remains identical to the OnePlus 3 in terms of size, retaining its 5.5-inch 1080p display. When put next to each other, the difference between the G6 and the OP3T is striking – the G6 is smaller, yet its display is substantially larger. LG's new contender is a bit thicker than the OnePlus 3T, but it more than makes up for this difference with its efficient and stylish design.
The OnePlus 3T currently runs OP's proprietary Oxygen OS version 4.0.3, which is based on Android 7.0 Nougat. Albeit not on the latest build of Nougat, the OnePlus 3T keeps things mostly up-to-date with security patches. Further, Oxygen OS looks very close to stock Android, which is sure to please many fans, but it is much more customizable, letting advanced users tweak the experience and parts of the interface to their heart's content.
While the two devices are very similar specs-wise, thanks to LG’s decision to equip the G6 with a Snapdragon 821 chipset, the small details are where each phone gets to shine. While the OnePlus 3 comes with an extra 2 GB of RAM, this is a negligible difference for most users, who will rarely get to use either device to its full potential. The two phones also feature a pretty similar battery size (3300 mAh in the LG vs 3400 mAh in the OnePlus), but the G6 has an advantage here (or at least it does in the US), as it also features wireless charging, courtesy of Qualcomm’s WiPower standard. Where it considerably lags behind, however, is in the size of its the built-in storage, which is either 32 or 64 GB, depending on where it’s sold. The OnePlus 3T, on the other hand, comes with a solid 128 GB of internal memory.
