LG G7 vs OnePlus 6 poll: and the winner is...
Both the OnePlus 6 and LG G7 ThinQ are two top-tier smartphones that are about to be released in the following weeks. Both have been announced and we know what they have to offer.

While they look pretty similar (did you notice that the wallpapers in the header image have been swapped?), they do have some minor differences... and one major one — the price. The OnePlus 6 starts at $530, while the G7 is expected to cost around $700 at launch.

As far as under-the-hood diversities? The G7 has a wide-angle secondary lens, while the OnePlus' assistive camera is there to help with night shots. The G7 comes with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, while the OnePlus 6 slams us with 128 GB – 256 GB of storage and 6 GB – 8 GB of RAM.

So, yeah, we were wondering — which one would you go for? The value-for-money underdog OnePlus 6 or the well-known brand's latest flagship — the LG G7. Well... here are the results!

I'll go for the G7!

Do we really know that? OnePlus is more of a boutique brand, no one in the USA except the phone nerds even have heard of the brand. LG is sold in every carrier store so by sheer exposure, I would assume LG has to sell more.

Is Scandinavia really the only place in the world where Carriers have OnePlus on stock? I know that Telia in Sweden, Denmark and Norway sell OnePlus 6 in their stores, but they don't have LG. Same with Telenor and most other carriers in the Nordic Countries.

And problem, at least in Norway, is that OnePlus costs more than Samsung s9!

The problem I have with OnePlus smartphones is they are using a forked version of Android, called Oxygen OS. LG does not fork Android, and it even support Google's project Treble. OnePlus does not support Treble for updates.

The OnePlus 6 does support Project Treble.

Queue me in, a damn phone nerd. One Plus 5 on deck, switching to the OP6 next week.

I call b.s. on that claim. The average American has no idea that the Oneplus 6 even exist, and there's a 1/100th chance they'll see one advertised in the storefront of their local carriers b/c they took the chance on marketing it sans-carrier agreements... do you really think Oneplus is gonna compete with carriers giving away phones at half off promotions & BOGO promos?

LG has already blown last year's preorders out of the water in their home turf. 70,000 vs 40,000. And that was on their first four days. I reckon they will reach over 150,000 pre-ordered units after the weekend once weekday workers make it to their service providers. I live in San Francisco and I have yet to run into a person with a OnePlus 6. But one out of four people here carry an LG phone! And there are over 8 Million people in the Bay area, and still no OnePlus Patron. Those 1,500 people that voted for the OnePlus 6 are probably either paid to vote and or are from the same area. LG will win!!!! Guaranteed!!! The G7 even has a smaller, nearly non-existent forehead and smaller chin while packing better overall features. I'd rather dish out an extra $50-#75 to get IP68 rating and that deliciously sounding BOOMBOX SPEAKER setup, not to mention the Quad DAC and better photos!!!! It's really a No Brainer!!! LG will win!!! But i guess the sales numbers will tell all since they're both launching at the same time!!!

Well, if that's the case, imagine what happens to LG...actually we are all too familiar with "LG reported a loss from the mobile division this quarter" articles.

It will easily outsell all tha iPhones combined in INDIA.

That's mostly because of low income though. I know for a fact that more than half of those 'Oneplus fans' would sell their left nut if it could buy them an iPhone.

If LG & HTC want to be relevant in android market, they should follow OnePlus’s approach - Stock UI with additional custom functions.

I would say -- HTC and LG should stop being greedy on RAM with their flagships. Oneplus is ahead of almost everybody with 8GB RAM option. When OP1 was released, 3GB of RAM was more than almost everybody else had those days. Today my OP1 is still running fine (a friend is currently using it) and has latest android and security patches.

LG has been pushing 6GB as an option since last year's V30+.

HTC is already pretty stock, and I don't know that OnePlus should be viewed as the most successful "stock Android plus a little modifications" manufacturer, I'm pretty sure Motorola sells more Moto G line phones than OnePlus sells all year.

Oxygen OS is not stock. It's close, but not stock. Additionally, LG is actually in the top 5 closest to stock Android. Also LG has much more customization than OnePlus. Starting with the manual cameras mode! OnePlus has raw power, but actually falls short on being a complete phone. I.e. No IP68 rating. I was really holding out for the OnePlus 6, but it disappointed me. I would've willingly paid an extra $50 to get that IP68 certification and QHD OLED. But their Nitche is also their Achilles heel.

Uhh...HTC has BEEN using basic Stock UI (which allows for timely updates) with custom functions...in fact, that no other manufacturers even comes close to matching...EdgeSense.

Oneplus fanboys are just pathetic and overboard. I can't believe they just choose an average overrated phone over a real quality flagship phone. The poll is totally a rigged scheme probably paid by Onecrap!

Sounds like a pathetic, overboard LG fanboy is really sore in the seat.

Galaxy S8 owner here. I don't appreciate conned low grade copycat firms. Here oneplus fanboys are just brainwashed that they only take low price into consideration. A low class unreliable product always costs cheap and takes advantage of real innovators. We must set a line for quality standard and ban those counterfeit junk from our civilized world.

You definitely wouldn’t like it if that were to happen.

I suggest you watch the QC process and factory where One plus is made. It's on YouTube.

Well, real quality flagship phone ? LG ? Lol !! LG is too famous for their bootloop issues and poor update support... And the software what we can call average !

You seem to be living in 2015. I now welcome you into 2018 where now for two years, LG has not had bootloop issues!!! Please talk about relevant data or don't talk at all!!!
