LG G7 vs OnePlus 6: which upcoming phone are you more excited for?

LG G7 vs OnePlus 6: which upcoming phone are you more excited for?
OK, so as far as we know, we are in for a double treat this late April / early May. Industry veteran LG is about to unveil its new flagship — supposedly called G7 ThinQ — and the fairly new kid on the block OnePlus will also be releasing its "2018 flagship killer" — the OnePlus 6.

And the fight between these two might, in fact, be fierce. Both will come with a full-screen display with a notch at the top, both will feature the latest-and-greatest in flagship hardware. LG has its name backing it up, but it's fair to say that the manufacturer has been losing some steam in the past years and its phones were very quick to drop in price post-release. On the other side, OnePlus is gaining momentum with very few bumps in its path — what was once a company only recognized by "smartphone geeks" is slowly creeping its way into the mainstream. And its prices are rising each year, too — we started with a $300 OnePlus 1 and had a $500 OnePlus 5T late last year.

So, in some sense, there is competition to be found here, especially when you consider that both devices are launching in the same time window.

All that said, which one are you more excited about?

Actually I was surprised. But since even I am disappointed by LG on a yearly basis, I should not be surprised.

First of all the every OnePlus smartphone uses a forked version of Android. Where as LG uses a non forked version of Android. The OnePlus doesn't even support Google's project Treble. Where as LG supports project Treble. No to mention other things that One plus doesn't support.

Look at the poll results. *mic drop*

They poll is rigged, I don't trust this artificial setup poll. I know OnePlus fanboys are overcrowded in this site because the only thing they interested about is low price, nothing else matters for them. This is what's wrong with them these they. I can't decide for them, but it's kind of unfair, unrealistic to take such a poll seriously because it's the opposite of the real life situation.

I want to say LG, but that "ThinQ" tag is so stupid. I'm sure they pronounce it Think, but they're wrong, it's Thin Q and it's dumb.

I don't know why they had to add that extra word. LG G7 is small and perfect.

I feel like the G7 "ThinQ" is a soft launch of a different brand name that they are testing out. By piggybacking off of the already existing G series, it will garner more attention instantly, and make a conscious parallel between the name "ThinQ" and "flagship" so by the time they are ready to launch the next flagship, the next phone may just be the LG ThinQ 2. We'll see.

Windows 7 came out everyone was using “se7en”. I hate when people think they’re cute with words. Makes me want to throat punch someone.

I despise when people use "leet." I agree it makes me want to smack them. Every screen name I see that is like that just bugs the piss out of me.

Agreed. This looks promising.

The U12+ will even be more disappointing than the LG G7 thinQ.

LG G7 same RAM, Storage may be a different screen nothing exciting at all and overpriced at launch and less than half the price 6 months later

Yeah, a low unreliable phone vs a true premium fully original phone. We'd take G7 over that startup Oneplus anyday.

In the other article you hated Apple bcoz of the notch and now you are praising LG saying it's an original phone. Lol how come Notch is original when it give total resemblance to iPX? Atleast OnePlus removed the bottom chin whereas LG is still having a bottom chin which makes it look more uglier.
