LG V30 vs Galaxy Note 8 vs OnePlus 5 vs HTC U11: Android heavyweights specs comparison

With the LG V30 now being official, the Android heavyweights space is getting more cramped than ever.

The brand new Galaxy Note 8, the excellent OnePlus 5, and the surprisingly-solid HTC U11 will be waging a war for consumers' pockets come the next few months, and the LG V30 will have a tough mission ahead of itself, considering that Google will have the final say with the second generation of its Pixel phones.

But as for now, these are the devices that stand between the LG V30 and the path to success. Let's see how they compare in terms of specs and specs alone, shall we?

Look very nice, but I don't get it how it's possible that is 7mm wider than regular S8, if it is baseless!? I understand it has a little bigger screen, but that just seems too much

Because the S8 is a skinny jean phone...the V30 has a flat screen and thankfully no glare on the sides like the S8 because of those curved edges bleh!!

This is such a wonderful phone. I am a OnePlus 5 user. I wish i could afford this. Lg is back again with the perfect design, unlike a few tall phones which weigh 200gms. This is what a perfect smartphone design should be. I wish OnePlus comes with something like this next year. LG you have hit it hard! Great job!

Good that I pre-ordered note 8. Nothing impressive unless you are a audiophile. Not even 6GB RAM.
