LG G6 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 edge vs Google Pixel XL: three-way specs comparison

12

Look, ma, there's a new contender in town — the brazen new LG G6 just arrived with the hopes of smashing the competition and becoming the new catwalk star in the spotlight.

Seemingly, the G6 has what it takes to be a successful device that has the potential to shake the status quo. It has a speedy chipset that hints at excellent performance, an exorbitantly high screen-to-size body ratio, water-tight full metal bod', and last but not least - the same dual-camera setup that has made the previous high-end LG devices an appealing choice.

But is the hardware feature list of the G6 enough to take on the already-existing superstars, the Galaxy S7 edge and the Google Pixel XL?
