The Samsung Galaxy S9 is undoubtedly going to be a hot device in 2018, but how will it stack up LG’s latest smartphone, the LG G7? Each year, two of the biggest tech manufacturers set the stage for the conversation of the best smartphone of the year, and their upcoming models are sure to set the biggest stage yet.
LG has always been an adopter of high resolution smartphone displays, so we may have more chance to see a 4K panel on the LG G7, but chances for a 4K display on the Galaxy S9 are reasonable, too. Even if the Samsung Galaxy S9 sticks to 2K resolution, we believe the S9 display will be superior, unless LG upgrades their display technology to AMOLED.
Performanse of Both
The Galaxy S9 is expected to have the absolute best chipset on the 2018 market, whilst LG are known to be happy to take the next thing down if needed. For this reason, we’d expect the Galaxy S9 to perform better, although the differences in performance may not be noticeable outside of benchmarks and intensive 3D gaming.
Camera Comparison Between Galaxy S9 and LG G7
The camera game is going to heat up in 2018 – the LG G7 is expected to have a great wide angle camera composition, but Samsung’s camera offering has never let anybody down. It’ll come down to the minute details, such as aperture lens size and included software features before we can declare a winner in the camera department.
Battery Comparison Between Galaxy S9 and LG G7
As for battery capacity, the LG G7 is expected to have a larger display than the Galaxy S9, so this will mean more room for a bigger battery. That doesn’t mean that the LG G7 will perform better, though. In fact Samsung’s battery life has often been better than the LG equivalent, even if battery sizes are smaller. If LG opts for a 4K panel on the G7 and doesn’t switch to AMOLED, we’ll definitely be seeing Samsung winning the battery battle.
We’ll have to wait for more information from both LG and Samsung before we can confidently announce a winner between the Galaxy S9 and the LG G7, but we do know that it’s going to be a close battle.
