Samsung has long dominated the Android market and LG wants to reverse that trend with the V40 ThinQ, its newest Android flagship. Given the impending battle, we decided to take a look at how the V40 ThinQ stacks up against Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9.
Though the V40 ThinQ is not marketed as a plus-sized device, it really is with its 6.4-inch notch-laden OLED display. This puts it in the same territory as the Galaxy Note 9 and its 6.4-inch OLED display. Each also boasts the Snapdragon 845 processor and a similar premium design of metal and glass paving the way for wireless charging and the fingerprint scanner on the back.
After that, the differences are interchangeable. The Note 9 has a bigger 4,000mAh battery and the S-Pen while the V40 has a triple-camera system and dual front-facing camera system.
It is truly an interesting match up of Android flagships, but it’s too early to crown a winner. Check out the spec comparison down below and decide which one is the better buy.
