First off, the LG G6 is equipped with a larger screen at 5.7 inches. This is due to the company’s Fullvision implementation that comes with a new 18:9 aspect ratio. This also puts more pixels at 2880 x 1440 as compared to P10 Plus’ 2560 x 1440 resolution.
Inside, the P10 Plus is embedded with a Kirin 960 octa-core CPU while the G6 runs on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 chipset. It has a lower memory at 4GB compared to Huawei’s 6GB RAM. Internal storage also favors the P10 with a choice of 64GB or 128GB.
Both devices feature dual rear cameras but they function differently from each other. The LG G6 combines a regular camera with a wide-angle one — similar to what we’ve seen on the G5 and V20. Meanwhile, Huawei’s 3rd-generation of Leica-certified cameras are now better at capturing 20MP monochrome images to get the details, then mixes data from the 12MP color sensor. The front shooter of the G6 also has wide-angle for group portraits but the P10 carried its Leica optics to the front with a bigger F1.9 aperture for low light shots.
Additionally, an IR blaster for controlling appliances has surprisingly been ditched by LG for its G6 which is then picked up by Huawei for the P10. LG makes up for it by incorporating a Hi-Fi Quad DAC for high-res audio. Both resist dust and water so you can use them in more instances than before. Finally, the two flagships carry fast charging capabilities but the P10 has more capacity at 3750mAh.
