With the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8, many comparisons are being drawn up to one of Samsung’s main competitors which is LG and the LG G6, which is the company’s flagship of 2017 for now. Now thanks to a video uploaded onto YouTube by XEETECHCARE, it puts both phones to the test in a speed comparison.

Now right off the bat it should be pointed out that both phones pack different specs. The LG G6 features the use of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 which was released last year, while the Galaxy S8 will use the Exynos 8895 (or the Snapdragon 835 depending on which market you are in).

In terms of speed, it appears that the Galaxy S8 is clearly the faster phone of the two. However it isn’t necessarily so much faster that you would or should disregard the LG G6 entirely. This is mainly because you wouldn’t walk around with two phones hand in hand, and like we said the difference in speed appears to be a couple of seconds so if you were to use the phones by themselves, it might not even be that perceivable.

Both phones do have their fair share of pros and cons, not to mention there is also a difference in pricing, so it really boils down to what you want and how much you are willing to pay for it. In the meantime if you have several minutes to spare, you can check out the video above to see the speed test in action.
