Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+ and LG G6 have won lots of praises for sporting bezel-less displays. This year has seen numerous smartphone manufacturers go for such displays. It’s a hot trend now, as bezel-less displays provide a stunning look and feel to the bricks.

Apart from the large displays, it will be interesting to see how the three fare against each other in terms of hardware. While the prices of the three depend a lot on carrier and payment plans, be ready to pay the most for the Galaxy S8+, followed by S8 and G6. In Australia, get ready to shell out $1,349 for the Galaxy S8+, $1,199 for the Galaxy S8 and about US$650 (AU$870 approx) for the LG handset.

The official release date of the Galaxy handsets is April 21. The G6 hit Asian markets in March. The S8 phones have Samsung Pay, which has an advantage over Android Pay. The former can imitate magnetic strip technology and can also be used with NFC terminals. This means they are accepted anywhere that accepts magnetic strip cards. Samsung’s DeX dock allows the S8 phones to run a desktop-like experience. Such a function is not available in the G6. Moreover, the G6 doesn’t support any significant VR tech, whereas the Galaxy handsets are compatible with the Samsung Gear VR.

When it comes to voice assistants, users are somewhat confused as Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ come with Samsung Bixby, and even have a dedicated button for that. However, it also has the Google Assistant, as the phones are Android systems. The G6 uses Google Assistant only. Camera-wise, both phones are pretty good, with Galaxy S8 and S8+ packing in 12MP rear and 8MP front cameras, while the LG G6 packing in 13MP rear and 5MP front cameras. Moreover, the G6 has dual-lens rear camera that combines a standard lens with a wide-angle lens.
