Poll: Samsung Galaxy Note8 vs LG V30
In the beginning of 2017, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6 were the leading flagships. Though in the first half, S8 clearly won. With a far superior design, better hardware and marketing it has been selling like hot cakes in almost every market. Even though the G6 is a mighty device, it couldn’t make up. Now coming to the second half of 2017, things have become even more interesting.
Samsung went through a serious Note 7 debacle last year and aims to re-establish it’s Note lineup. But LG too has upped it’s game with the V30. When the V series was started, it was intended to be a true productivity machine and hence didn’t concentrate much on design and aesthetics. For the first time, LG has churned out an amazingly well built and powered V series device intending to take on the Note8. While the two are still not available in market for purchase, they shall soon be available for pre-order and start shipping by mid – September.
