Samsung's earnest effort to set a benchmark by launching Galaxy S8 will be countered by LG's V20. Both of the Smartphone giants have new tricks up their sleeves and it will be interesting to see who wins this duel.

Galaxy S8 has mastered the use of Iris scanner which is the sole aspect where LG V20 cannot challenge it. Galaxy S8 stands at 5.8" weighing 155 grams, whereas the V20 stands firm at 5.7" and weighs a tad more than S8. As mentioned in Gadgets now, S8 has a Super AMOLED display compared to the IPS LCD of V20. S8 has a better pixel density of 568ppi to the 515ppi of V20.

Running on 4GB RAM, both phones have an internal storage of 64GB. However, S8 has amped up the device using Octa Core whereas the processor of V20 is rather simplified and uses Quad Core. V20 has incorporated the highly rated Snapdragon 820 chipset whereas Samsung has relied on its Samsung Exynos 9 Octa 8895. The Graphics processor Adreno 530 is used by V20 and Samsung has added a new one to its arsenal, Mali-G71 MP20.

Android Headlines has praised the picture qualities of Samsung Galaxy S8 as well as LG V20. V20 has an HD enabled 16MP rear camera, but a disappointing 5MP front camera. S8 has been modest in its approach and is equipped with a 12MP rear camera and 8MP front camera with the facility of wide angle FFC.

However, the battery capacities are a tad disappointing. LG V20 is powered with 3200 mAh, whereas the Samsung Galaxy S8 is powered by a modest 3000 mAh battery. V20 pips S8 in terms of SIM slots where the latter can only provide a single Nano SIM slot compared to the former's dual SIM slots.

Judging by the data in hand, Samsung Galaxy S8 is superior to LG V20 in terms of processor, display resolution, and camera. However, the battery capacity and the dual SIM facility are bound to attract consumers. The S8 will cost $720 and is less than the base price of V8 priced at $749.
