    Seems like a hard decision between the two: the awesome dual cameras of the G6, or the beautiful curvy S8?

    Tough call. Hardware on the S8 seems likely to be better hardware, LG might edge it out on software. Still need a lot of info on what Samsung's bringing with the camera this year.

    If I were getting a new phone in the next couple of months I would go with the G6 mainly because the screen is flat.

    I'm liking the looks of the S8 more and more each time it leaks!!! Already have the LG V20 so not really interested in the G6 that much...

    I will wait for actual prices before I make any decisions about either.

    The G6 intrigues me. I'm not really feeling it for the curved edges of the S8 screen. I like the size of the G6. Slightly smaller than the S7 Edge. If it comes in around $700, it may sway me vs the $870 S8.

    You say $870. It will probably be around $1000. Lol

    I very highly doubt that the S8 would be priced at $1000. They need to get some of their customers back, not chase them away. $699-$799. I don't think it goes higher than that.

    Hahahaha sorry but you know they had one of their highest quarterly earnings when all this happened.

    11 GB of the 32 GB sucked up by OS and bloatware? C'mon LG.

    You left off all the other phone manufacturers that ship their phones with an OS installed.

    True, but the 11 GB, is just OS and LG bloatware. Doesn't even include the carrier bloatware. I don't understand why so much storage is required for Android. iOS only takes up around 2 GB.

    True. When I had a Pixel it took 11 with OS and 85 apps accounted for. Pretty low.

    That's all fine and dandy. An S8 won't be $1000.

    I've used LG in the past and enjoyed the experience, and I really like the look of the G6... So I'd probably go for that over the S8. Especially since the 6 has dual cameras. My Honor 8 has dual cameras as well, so I definitely get good use out of that feature!

    Neither. Not because they're terrible but because I have no plans to swap phones.

    If I had to choose, probably the Galaxy S8+. I'm not a fan of LG's decision to feature-swap G6s according to geographical location. The G6 is very appealing, but LG still needs to prove a ton in software support as they've historically been "meh" in that regard.

    I mean, sure. The G3 got Lollipop very quickly. The G4 got Marshmallow quickly too, and the G3 wasn't far behind at all. But at keeping them updated, they're not good at that. The G3 was stuck on a bug-ridden build of Lollipop for ages (to add insult to injury, it was 5.0, not even 5.0.1) and the G4 lagged behind on security patches, not to mention that LG initially decided not to update both the G4 and V10 to Android 7 citing difficulties in "ensuring optimized performance" (Though I'm pretty sure I know the real reason why), only to reverse that after an outcry.

    I hope LG improves on this, because this is where even their arch-rival Samsung is better at (to an extent).

    Why is ANY manufacturer making 32 GB phones in 2017 in the first place??? Give me 128GB standard, and 11GB doesn't seem so much...

    My two pence worth is I agree that I'll be going with the G6, it has wireless charging, great camera aha a flat screen and will be cheaper than the S8 I believe. I have the Huawei P9 with HTC sense 6 (my favourite launcher) which I like but the curved screen edges are terrible as you cannot get a tempered glass protector that does the job. The G6 over here is going to be around £700 and I've heard the Samsung will be around £50-£100 more... 👎

    G6 for me. Don't like curved screens. Never really saw the point of them. Also, the S8 looks awkwardly long. And that fingerprint scanner placement 😧

    Because consumers are dumb.

    Seriously... the iPhone 6S had a 16GB model, and sold a TON of them. People look at price first, then worry about the particulars second. And many aren't nuanced to recognize that 16GB was shambolic. So lets move to today... Yes, the base storage option for most of the upper tier phones should be 64GB, but this would also contribute to an increase in price (modest or not), which would cause people to howl in protest.

    Not in the market for a new phone, but, I'd probably go with the G6.
