Poll: let's talk Nougat phablets — Google Pixel XL or LG V20?
So, now that the Note 7 is officially dead, it seems that the Nougat-toting Google Pixel XL and LG V20 are the only high-profile Android phablets of the second half of 2016. The Pixel XL carries Google's own Pixel launcher, revolving around the Google Assistant, built on top of its latest Android build — 7.1. LG's V20 has its own spin — the LG UX 5.0 — but it's still built on top of Android 7 Nougat, making LG the first 3rd party developer to launch a phone with the newest major Android build.

That's pretty much where their similarities end. Both phones have their own unique features, and both are targeted at different audiences. The LG V20 seems to be aimed at the photo, video, and music buffs, with its dual cameras, high acoustic overload points for the microphones (can record loud, loud noises), elaborate manual video mode, and quad DACs. The Pixel XL takes a more casual approach when it comes to hardware, with no extra bells and whistles or extreme bling. But it is Google's new platform for software concepts and solutions and the Android faithful probably have what to be excited about.

Cast your vote: LG V20 or Google Pixel XL?

I'll have the Google Pixel XL!
The LG V20 is my weapon of choice!
I really can't imagine myself using any of those phones... ever!
