LG G6 has now been unveiled formally and it looks like a pretty amazing device that has the specs, power and performance to be pitted against some of the very best smartphones in the industry. It will be interesting to see how it fares when compared to a highly-efficient device such as the Google Pixel XL.

The LG G6 has a 5.7-inch display with no physical Home button. The rear is made of glass and the handset is available in three colours -- Mystic White, Astro Black and Ice Platinum. It has a screen resolution of 1,440 x 2,880 pixels and the screen is flat.

According to New Atlas, the LG G6 is a smaller device than the Google Pixel XL, which is about four percent taller and five percent wider and a bit thinner. The Google flagship is also five grammes heavier than the LG smartphone. Both devices are made of glass and aluminium. While the Pixel XL is mostly aluminium with a glass accent portion on its upper back panel, the G6 is mostly glass on the front and back with an aluminium frame holding the two together. Water resistance is a feature that is present in the LG handset but not the Google one.

The Google Pixel XL comes in black, silver and blue variants with the last option being the most-adventurous. It has a screen size of 5.5 inches with a display resolution of 2,560 X 1,440 pixels. The LG G6 has the most-impressive screen-to-body ratio and 18:2 display aspect ratio. While on paper, the resolution is better for the LG device, Pixel XL, in real life, has an equally impressive display, if not more. But the G6 has Dolby Vision and HDR 10 standards. While LG Has settled for an IPS Display, the Pixel XL has an impressive AMOLED Display, reviews GSMArena.

Google Pixel XL uses USB-C for quick charging whereas the LG G6 has Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0. However, Google claims that the Pixel XL can provide up to seven hours of charge with only 15 minutes of charging. Google and LG use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor but with different clock speeds. Both have 4GB of RAM. The 32GB internal storage option is available in the two, though Google Pixel XL also has a 128GB variant. The LG G6 has a microSD slot to expand memory up to 2TB.

The Pixel XL is Google Daydream-ready while the LG G6 isn’t. Both run on Android 7.0 Nougat and have Google Assistant, NFC, rear-mounted fingerprint sensors and 3.5mm headphone jack. The LG G6 packs a 3,300 mAh battery whereas the Pixel XL, a 3,450 mAh battery. The former has a 13MP primary and 5MP selfie camera with dual lens and OIS. The Google Pixel XL has a 12MP rear camera and 8MP selfie camera. The price of LG G6 is not known as of now. The Pixel XL has a price tag of US$769 (AU$1,000 approx).
