    First things first. You need to go to a store and hold both because they feel completely different. The S8+ can be uncomfortable for some and not others.

    The best way to determine what would work better is for you to pinpoint certain features you are looking for or on the fence about and we can give you an idea how both phones handle them.

    I just made the switch from the 8+ to the G6. My reasoning was the "in hand" feeling. The 8+ was very uncomfortable to operate one handed. They are both amazing devices and I feel it has to be an individual judgment as to what works best for them.

    Off the bat, I'd say the LG G6 has the perfect in-hand feel. I'd say they are both good options, but it really depends on what you are looking for in a phone. I've heard great things about both - if you're looking at saving some cash, the G6 is also a good bet.

    I just traded in my S8+ and I agree. The one handed usability you get with the G6 is excellent. I like the G6's aggressively flat display as well, because I've had ZERO issues with putting a screen protector on it. I have heard nothing but bad things about the S8's screen protector offerings. The battery life still gets me through the day and there's no noticeable performance decrease. while I do think OLED is better for displays, the G6 still has an 18:9 ratio and you're not going to notice too much of a difference.

    Play with both and see what you feel is the best for your needs. How it feels in hand, ease of use one handed, flat vs curved screen and biometrics. The finger primt sensor is in a horrible location on the Samsung and the curves can cause fits for many when it comes to typing. The camera is personal preference. I still love my G6 but my S8+ was way faster at capturing images.

    Con for both is 18/9 ratio. Almost everything in Youtube and tv is 16/9. I read in portrait view and the 18/9 are too narrow especially with curved edges.

    Once Apple goes 18/9, it won't be a con anymore. ๐Ÿ˜„

    It will be for me until everything on tv is 18/9. I don't want to have black bars nor lose content. I just prefer wider portrait view.

    Yep! I haven't had any problems playing my games, watching videos or Netflix. And for the record, 18:9 ratio is the future.

    I use a lot of excel docs for pricing at work and I used to just pull my iPad out bit with the new screen ratio I can see so many more columns I just use my phone now. It's been great.
