We have compared two of the most interesting terminals that exist in the market today. We refer to the LG G6 and Sony Xperia XZ Premium . Both belong to the high product range, so you have to expect the best from each of them. We indicate where we think we stand out when facing.
Aesthetically, we have to say that the LG G6 we believe surpasses the Sony Xperia XZ Premium. It is true that the latter has rounded edges that are attractive, but it is no less true that the second is very large compared to its rival that, including a larger screen, is lighter and smaller . There is no color, the truth – yes, it is noted that conceptually both models are very different.
The LG G6 is more manageable and offers a better ergonomics , which means that in the day to day one gets less tired when handling it and is more comfortable, for example, to keep it in the pocket of the pants. Of course, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium does not lack details that make it a good competitor, since the fingerprint reader is present (on the power button, while the LG G6 has it in the back). In addition, the USB type C port is present in both devices and, here, there are no differences as the functionality is outstanding in both.
This time the LG G6 includes resistance to water and dust , as it happens with the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, reason why none is delayed in the comparison. The metallic finish with glass is present in the two smartphones as manufacturing material, which makes them attractive. In short, the small dimensions that have been achieved in the LG G6 makes it the winner in what has to do with the design.
There is no discussion in the hardware
Clearly the two terminals are more than enough to run all kinds of applications, of that there is no doubt. But, in our opinion, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium beats the LG G6. The reasons for saying this is that the former includes a Snapdragon 835 processor and 64GB of storage, while the other model stays in Snapdragon 821 and 32 “gigas” . In RAM, there is tie: 4 GB each of them.
The results are that the use experience is good in both, but when you have to get out of the game or work at the highest level, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium delivers superior overall performance. By the way, in the autonomy can be said that there is a technical tie , since the two arrive at the end of the day …. But “scraping”. Therefore, there are no clear cattle and the battery charge is also not definitive as they are 3,300 mAh in the LG G6 and 3,230 mAh in its rival.
Curious that the sound , despite the inclusion of two speakers in the front of the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, is more powerful and defined in the LG G6. Here the Japanese company must move forward … but without changing the place where it integrates the components, as this avoids seals. When it comes to software, both come with Nougat and, yes, the LG model offers more customization, while the Sony is flatter and closer to the “pure” experience of Google.
Screen and cameras of the LG G 6 and the Sony Xperia XZ Premium
The panel that has the LG G6 is 5.7 inches IPS type, while the Sony Xperia XZ Premium offers one of the same technology, but 5.5 “. Leaving aside the use of the front, where the first wins without discussion, it seems quite clear that the Japanese model offers a higher quality screen : more brightness, more defined colors, etc. It definitely looks much better. In addition, its resolution rises to 4K, while LG stays in QHD (but, in our view, we do not see many differences in the definition of text and videos for this reason). The case, is that the Sony Xperia XZ Premium clearly wins here.
In what has to do with the cameras, it must be said that both manufacturers have done a great job and that have strengths both where they surpass their rival . The Sony Xperia XZ Premium bets for a sensor that offers good behavior in general, with a good behavior in the day and that stands out in the recording (especially in slow motion). The LG G6 includes two sensors, which work in parallel, and behave very well, offering a greater angle and work in low light conditions its rival. Good the two cameras, the truth, but each one with its virtues (in particular analysis of LG G6 and Sony Xperia XZ Premium you can see more details regarding this hardware).
The LG Camera app looks much better as it is faster and offers more possibilities. But, on the contrary, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium is clearly superior in what has to do with selfies . So, it’s simply a matter of being clear about what you’re looking for.
As for the price, the two models came to the market with the same: 749 euros , but right now the LG G6 offers very interesting rebates, so this factor is a little on its side. By the way, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium has Bluetooth 5.0, which is a great success, while its rival integrates FM radio.
