OnePlus 6 beats LG G7 at pre-launch popularity contest?

OnePlus 6 beats LG G7 at pre-launch popularity contest?
So, we are expecting two major smartphone launches in the next couple of weeks. One is LG's next flagship — the LG G7 ThinQ —, while the other is the up-and-comer OnePlus' next "flagship killer" — the OnePlus 6.

Both of these devices will have something to fight for. LG is trying to regain the love of the users, as it has kind of wavered over the past couple of years. OnePlus, on the other hand, is striving to become more popular and enter the mainstream. Both companies have been doing good with moving towards their goals last year — the LG V30 was a really refreshing and well-received phone, while the OnePlus 5 and 5T started to really get "non-geek" attention. So, both companies' 2018 flagships certainly need to be solid.

We thought we'd measure excitement — which brand do you care more about at this point? So we ran a poll. While we did expect LG to be a bit behind, due to it falling out of favor while OnePlus is the exciting new thing, we didn't expect that much of a difference! Here's hoping that the G7 ThinQ really blows our minds and puts LG back in the race!

No phone with notch is good.

what do you mean? most of Oneplus 6 hardware is either very similar or better and assuming both will be running fairly clean androids, OP6 should outperform LG.

Actually, if you put the OnePlus 5t side by side with the LG V30, the V30 wins. It's not that I don't like OnePlus, because I do! But facts are facts! Just look at the battery drain tests. Or how about the Quad DAC? There's still NO PHONE that can beat the LG V30!

LG makes premium quality phones. Oneplus makes crappy chinese quality phones. There's no comparison. LG is much better than Oneplus. This whole poll just shows how ignorant most consumers tend to be.

as long as you can hide the notch via software, I don't mind it. Also, it can't be as big as the notch on the iPhone X. Since I'm on Verizon, Oneplus isn't really an option for me right now. Once my wife's Pixel XL is paid off, I might to switch to AT&T so I have more phone buying options.

I wouldn't get either of these phones because of that hideous notch. These companies should be embarrassed and ashamed for copying Apple. I'll stick with my Pixel 2 XL until this fad goes away.

How can LG regain love from their customers if they cannot provide a better customer service? I'll stick to Samsung for now until they realize it. S8+ was my very first Samsung device and now the S9+, and I feel VIP on how they provide CS. With LG, I felt like "we got your money, the hell we care about you and your next purchase".

Actually my experience with Samsung preorder of the Note 8 was absolutely horrible. If you can het a hold of their CS, all they do is spin you around with different lies each time and send you away without giving you any help. In comparison, even Comcast and ATT customer service is a hundred times better. At least they treat you as a valued customer.

I don't like the notch on either phone, for starters, so personally, I probably won't get either. However, between the two, the LG looks better from the back in my opinion, but the OnePlus looks better without the bottom chin on the front. I gave my vote to OnePlus only because I'm more dissapointed with LG's decision overall. They both copied the iPhone much too closely for my liking (especially OnePlus). I'm not knocking them because I dislike the iPhone, but because it shows a lack of originality from both camps (this includes Huawei also.) It's almost expected that a smaller Chinese company may copy the iPhone, but I'd expect much more originality from Huawei, LG and others. Disappointing.
