[ Check out MKBHD’s version of this comparison here: ]

The LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8 are two of the best smartphones of 2017 … but there’s a reason the average person may have only heard about one of them. Samsung is throwing its usual marketing muscle behind the Galaxy, for one thing, and for another … well, the S8 might just be the better phone. From features to cosmetics, the Galaxy S8 is a force to be reckoned with. But that doesn’t mean you should ignore the LG G6; a wide-angle camera, MIL-STD 810G durability and a fingerprint scanner put where humans can actually use it? That’s a compelling combination, one whose mantle I take up in this rare MrMobile comparison – featuring an even rarer special guest appearance! Tune in as MrMobile and his LG G6 do battle with MKBHD and his Samsung Galaxy S8! As usual, the only winner is the one YOU decide on … but getting there is the whole point, right?

  1. I Changed from Nokia to Samsung 5 years ago and I fell in love with the AmoLED screen. But this time I have to say the G6 is simply beautiful. The only thing it bothers me is the processor and the datails in photography: aperture of 2.2 vs 1.7 in Samsung. Nevertheless it's kind of difficult to me to make a choice so far. What would you recommend, guys?

  2. I have the S8 plus and I really like it, but I was sitting in a chair and I dropped it from lap height. Despite the SV-View case the screen cracked. Cost to repair with insurance was 125. I now have a more durable case. Additional note the curved display is great but I can not find a screen protector that lasts more than a couple of days.

  3. Soon i will get the LG G6, but i live in europe, sadly meaning that i will get a plain LG G6, no special features AT ALL, no quad Dac, no qi, nothing. South koreans get 64 GB and high quality audio

  4. Sometimes you showed the G6 next to an S8 Plus, and that's unfair cause it made the G6 look very small, and this is supposed to be a G6 vs S8 video.

  5. So funny that since Apple used the word "Gamut" I have never heard it before.. just like "bokeh" and… maybe some other things..? The phones… GS8 wins. But I really like the V30.. it is just so much better than anything Samsungs makes.. I mean.. it is almost the same 😀 but slightly better in a lot of small things
