iPhone X vs. LG G6: LG’s forgotten flagship doesn’t stand a chance

by Brandon Russell | September 12, 2017

Consider the G6 LG’s forgotten flagship. Not because it’s a bad device, but because it immediately got overshadowed by the Galaxy S8 and never truly recovered. With that already insurmountable mountain to climb, it now has the iPhone X to contend with.

Despite the G6 seeming like it was released ages ago, the device still has a lot to offer thanks to its combination of design, specs, and display. But if you want LG’s latest technology, the company’s V30 might be more your speed.
