LG V20 vs. Google Pixel – Which One Prevails?

LG V20 vs. Google Pixel

The smartphone market is the most competitive markets in the world right now. There is a good reason behind this. The smartphone market is filled with a tough crowd there made from the likes of LG, Samsung and Apple. Lately LG has been reigning supreme on the market with its LG V20 but now a worthy competitor has arrived. Google finally ventured into the smartphone world by its own with the Pixel lineup. All tech companies have been affected by Google’s arrival on the scene, but LG was affected the most because Pixel XL fits in the same category as Google’s Pixel XL. Today we’re going to take the two devices and pin them against each other and see which one takes the cake.

Design

LG isn’t known for creating sleek designs. The company focuses more on hardware performances than on looks. With that being said, let’s go over LG V20’s design. Instead of opting for a sleek look, LG went with a rougher one. The reason behind this is that LG V20 boasts a military grade build that’s been constructed from a removable aluminum back plate. The back plate is quite smooth and feels good, it also gives users the option to swap batteries.

While LG didn’t bother that much with design, Google did. Pixel XL features an aluminum body that has glass in the top half. This glass gives Pixel XL a more stylish feel while also making it unique. The smartphone comes with slightly curved edges which have been designed to make it easier to pick up.

Worth mentioning is that both devices feature on-screen buttons and not the classic physical buttons. Additionally, both smartphones come with a fingerprint sensor installed on the back. Regarding the fingerprint sensor, Pixel XL’s works a tad faster.  Also, both Google and LG equipped their devices with a reversible USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm audio jack.

Display

Right from the start we are able to see one big difference. LG V20 uses LCD technology while Pixel XL is fitted with an AMOLED display. With that being said let’s cover both displays and see what how well they perform. LG equipped its flagship with a 5.7 inch high-res display that has a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. While it might an LCD display, it’s a very good one. What makes us say that is the fact that LG V20’s display excels at representing colors, especially warm colors thus producing great pictures.

On the other hand, Pixel XL comes with a 5.5 inch display that has the same pixel resolution of 1440 x 2560. The AMOLED display is outstanding and it’s capable of producing some of the best pictures. This can be done thanks to the Pentile technology which gives Pixel XL the ability to create oversaturated colors. Regarding brightness levels, LG V20 perform exceptionally outdoors while Pixel XL does not. Pixel XL is affected by this brightness flaw because you can’t see anything on the display during a sunny day.

Hardware Performance

This is the most important category of them all. Even though there have been some small differences in design and display technology, hardware performance differences are what matter. Let’s take a look under LG V20’s hood and see what we can find. Upon closer inspection we can see that LG V20 is powered by Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon 820 which is paired with an Adreno 530 GPU and 4GB of RAM. Pixel XL is also powered by one of Qualcomm’s processor but by the more powerful quad-core Snapdragon 821. The processor is also coupled with an Adreno 530 GPU and 4GB of RAM. The two devices come out as close equals the only difference being that Pixel XL’s processor is a bit more powerful.

    Puede ser una dificil comparacion de verdad, pero pienso que el Google pixel puede estar un poco por encima del Lg v20.

  84. the pixel xl is clearly the dominant one as its processor is more powerful and it is stock android so the overall performance would be better and reading all the other reports it clearly has a better camera.
    so the pixel xl is clearly the winner
