Huawei Nexus 6P vs LG G4 – Does LG Have What It Takes to Win?
LG is a versatile company that’s been known to meddle in every aspect of technology. The South Korean tech giant has been seeing huge success with its home devices such as washing machines and fridges for example but there’s one industry where LG is struggling and that’s the smartphone one. The reason why LG is not seeing the same success in the smartphone world is because the competition is just way too tough.
For example, back in 2015 LG G4 was launched and even though it presents high-end specs, it still didn’t manage to have the same success as LG’s other devices. The reason behind this is that LG G4 went on against Google and Huawei’s Nexus 6P. Today we will pin these two smartphones against each other and see if LG has what it needs to win over the smartphone industry.
LG G4 ships with a 5.5-inch IPS LCD panel that offers a high pixel resolution of 1440 x 2560 and an even more impressive pixel density of 538 ppi. Furthermore, the display is coated in Corning Gorilla Glass 3 which improves its crack and scratch resistance.
On the other hand, Google and Huawei’s Nexus 6P features a slightly larger 5.7-inch AMOLED panel which features the same pixel resolution but a smaller pixel density of 518 ppi. However, Nexus 6P’s display is coated in the more advanced Corning Gorilla Glass 4.
In terms of specs, LG G4 boasts with Qualcomm’s hexa-core Snapdragon 808 CPU that’s been bundled with an Adreno 418 GPU and 3GB of RAM. Nexus 6P’s hardware specs shouldn’t be overlooked at all since it features Qualcomm’s more powerful octa-core Snapdragon 810 CPU alongside an Adreno 430 GPU and 3GB of RAM.
While LG G4 might have a slight advantage in the display department, Nexus 6P makes up for that with its powerful hardware specs. Moreover, Nexus 6P wins this brief comparison not only because of its impressive specs but also because it receives all of Google’s latest operating system updates.
