If you need a high-end smartphone right now then you have a few options to choose between, in particular, we think that there are 4 great options that are currently available, including the LG G6, the iPhone 7 Plus, the Google Pixel XL, and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
The LG G6 is the latest of the 4, however, these still compare well as they are similar sized and similarly speced, aside from a few features.
Of course, there should be a new iPhone, Pixel, and a new Galaxy smartphone soon, at which point we will be sure to update this shootout, but for now, here’s our latest spec shootout.
