iPhonearena gives this phone a decent phone for $299. Yet it has a 5.2" 1080 full HD display, a massive 4100 mha battery with 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of expandable storage. The iPhone 8 has 2 GB of RAM with 64 gb of non expandable storage, a 750p 4.7" HD display for $699. What's the matter iPhonearena? Are you afraid to give this smartphone a score? How close would the score be to the 9.2 score you gave the iPhone 8?

Get an LG X Venture and an iPhone 8. Compare their speed when it comes to browsing, gaming, multiple app usage, and so on. Reply back. Thanks.

Why are u so much into specifications? If I give you two options, a car with 4 wheels and a car with 6 wheels. Would you choose the one with 6 wheels because u feel that the extra 2 wheels will make it faster?

You really can't directly compare an offroad SUV to a city SUV. Just like phones, they have priority features.

If you indeed knew, then they'll be no point for you to say "a car with 4 wheels and a car with 6 wheels. Would you choose the one with 6 wheels because u feel that the extra 2 wheels will make it faster?" The car with 6 wheels will have better grip and stability on the ground... Do some trucks not have 12 wheels? 6 wheels grouped in pairs of two at each side.
