Samsung and LG are two of the biggest South Korean names in the consumer electronics market. They both are known for releasing great products around the world which makes the battle between the two an interesting one. This is the reason we will talk about a speed test and camera comparison featuring the LG G7 ThinQ and Samsung Galaxy S9+.
In this test, both these Android flagships are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. They come with all the amazing features that you would expect from a modern flagship like bezel-less display, dual rear cameras, great front camera, big battery, and latest Android version.
Starting with the speed test, both LG G7 ThinQ and Galaxy S9+ performed quite close. The competition was neck-to-neck until the games appeared where the latter turned out to be slightly faster. The difference between the two was visible only because of the side-by-side comparison otherwise there was nothing to be disappointed about.
In the camera comparison stage, both flagships clicked some impressive shots but LG had a slight advantage because of the wide-angle lens. It means it was able to capture more without cropping anything or requiring the user to make certain adjustments to make sure that everything was coming in the frame. Samsung had its moments during low-light shots where it offered more natural shots.
