LG V20 vs Galaxy Note 7 vs iPhone 6s Plus
LG did it again - after somewhat surprising us with the LG V10 less than a year ago, it is now trying to capture our hearts once again with the LG V20. It seems to be having it all - intriguing design, hardware specs that check all the boxes, and finally, a rather saucy selection of multimedia features that make these a compelling pick for audiophiles and video-recording zealots alike.

But how do these stack up against the competition, namely Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 and Apple's iPhone 6s Plus, two quite popular devices running in the same department? As usual, we are set to find out by putting all three side by side in a specs comparison.
