Last year, OnePlus and LG suffered similar fates. Each released very impressive smartphones but each was forgotten amidst the shuffle of high profile releases from Apple, Samsung and Google. LG made an attempt to break this trend with the V40 a few months back and OnePlus is trying to do the same with the newly announced OnePlus 6T, so let’s compare the two.
The OnePlus 6T features a more refined design, slimming the notch and adding an in-display fingerprint scanner. Those new features pair nicely with the solid display, impressive specs and a killer price point that undercuts just about every other flagship smartphone.
The V40 is a very unique device. LG went all-out with the design and spec sheet, including five cameras, two on the front and three on the back. I reviewed the V40 a couple weeks back and came away thoroughly impressed. I haven’t used the OnePlus 6T yet, but it also looks just as impressive.
Is the V40 that much better than the OnePlus 6T? That’s a loaded question and not one I’m ready to answer just yet. Feel free to do otherwise by checking out the side by side spec comparison between the two devices down below.
