Now that both are out, which would you buy: LG G6 or Samsung Galaxy S8 / S8+?

But there's also the possibility that, in your heart of hearts, you've already made a decision. Either due to brand loyalty, or not being able to take your eyes off of a specific device because its design is stunning, or just due to its hardware specs. So, we thought we'd ask you — now that both the LG G6 and the Galaxy S8 / S8+ are for sale, which one do you want to throw your money at?

Wow, this was super vague. Just because it runs on some dude's subjective run day and survives, doesn't mean it has excellent battery life. I need objective proof that the battery is great; and the current reviews show that the battery is pretty mediocre(GSMArena, PA etc). Anandtech review will make it a lot more clear.

If I were in the market between the two, my initial reaction was to favour the S8. But between the bizarre placement of the fingerprint scanner and Samsung patching up the ability to remap the Bixby key, I'm not so sure anymore...

Cheaper 8. 128gb flash storage Yes, the Mate 9 pro is legitimately better than the S8/S8+. Don't be a stupid fanboy.

That's personal. I bought the G6 because I prefer to have an FM radio over a slightly better screen and slightly better battery life.

LG's top phones have never been a worthy opponent for Samsung flagships, not that any other brand has ever had a real worthy opponent for Samsung Note line! and I have a feeling (judging by the looks of the newly introduced S line) the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 is gonna be a beast in it's own rights and gonna have a class all on its own.

Well, the G2 was a better phone than Samsung's galaxy S4, even without the expandable storage. Of course in classic LG fashion, they saved that feature for the local market. True to form, LG are their own worst enemy. But that seems a looong time ago.
