id="article-body" class="row" section="article-body"> Now playing: Watch this: Samsung Galaxy S8: The good, the bad, the beautiful 4:41 Once again, Samsung and LG's rival phones come face to face. And once again, we're here to help you figure out which is best for you.













Both the Galaxy S8 and G6 are excellent high-end phones with slim bezels, waterproofing and the latest Android 7.0 software. And both companies are attempting to regain their footing after independent setbacks; Samsung from its Galaxy Note 7 recall nightmare and LG from the nonstarter that was the LG G5 and its handful of modular accessories.













Overall, the S8 has the sexier, stronger hardware, but does that really matter in the end? LG's G6 saves you money and offers a lot of the same features. To help you out, I evaluated how these devices stacked up in design, camera, performance, features and value.

The S8 and G6 have plenty of design elements in common. Both are rated IP68 for water resistance and have barely-there bezels. However, the S8 has a slightly bigger display (5.8 inches compared to 5.7), and is physically lighter, narrower and thinner than the G6. It also fared better during our drop test. The S8's display uses Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and survived multiple drops from different heights. But the G6's screen is coated with Gorilla Glass 3 and during our drop tests, it cracked on the first try. Lastly, the S8's display has a higher google pixel dxomark density, so it's a tad sharper (though you can't really discern this with your naked eye).

One thing that we absolutely hate about the S8, though, is its fingerprint reader, which is awkwardly located right next to the camera lens. I much prefer the G6's approach, which places a round target right underneath the camera lens.

The G6 can take wide-angle shots from its front-facing camera and two rear cameras (one's got a wide-angle lens). This means you can fit more content in each frame, including more peeps for a group selfie. There's also a Square Camera app that edits neat square photos perfect for google pixel geekbench pixel dxomark Instagram.













The S8 does not have two rear cameras (bucking the trend that Apple, LG and Huawei have all hopped on), but it has tons of features like Snapchat-like facial effects and a Portrait editing option that blurs the background.
