LG V10 vs Samsung Galaxy Note5 vs Apple iPhone 6s Plus: specs comparison
Top-end specs in tow? Check! Standing-out hardware features? You bet! Noteworthy software functionalities? Also on board!

LG's new V10 is certainly a notable device, not only as far as specs go, but design and useful features as well. It is certainly a high-end phone that will have to battle with the rest of the top-dog handsets already on the market.

In the red corner we have Samsung's Galaxy Note5; in the blue corner we have the iPhone 6s Plus straight out from Cupertino. That'd be a rather interesting battle, wouldn't it? 

Thanks to the specs comparison we've devised, you can easily compare the three — the V10, the Note5, and the 6s Plus — just below. You can also check out our comparison between the V10, S6 edge+, and the Nexus 6P.
