Galaxy S10 vs LG G8: Specs & Features

Another area of importance for most buyers are the specs and features of a phone. Luckily, both of these phones are super powerful with very similar hardware inside. Here are the numbers. 

Galaxy S10 Specs 

  • 6.1-inch 3040 x 1440 Quad-HD AMOLED Curved Display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 or Samsung Exynos Processor
  • 128 or 512GB of internal storage (MicroSD slot included)
  • 8GB of RAM 
  • Android 9 Pie with Samsung One UI
  • Triple Rear Cameras: 12, 12, 16MP (Regular variable aperture, telephoto, and super wide-angle) Main 12MP Dual Pixel will still have OIS, 960 FPS slo-mo, and more
  • 10MP front-facing camera inside the screen (top right corner)
  • In-Display ultrasonic fingerprint scanner under the glass near the bottom 
  • IP68 dust & water resistance (5ft for 30 minutes)
  • 3,400 mAh battery with Fast & Wireless Charging, and reverse charging
  • Always-On Display, 3D Emoji (like animoji)
  • Samsung Pay, Bixby Virtual Assistant, USB Type-C, 3.5mm headphone jack, more

Pretty powerful, right?

LG G8 Specs

  • 6.1-inch 3120 x 1440 Quad-HD Full-Vision Display
  • 8-Core Snapdragon 855 Processor with 6GB of RAM
  • 128GB storage with microSD expansion
  • Android 9 Pie with LG UI
  • Dual Rear Camera: 12-Megapixel f/1.5 main camera, 16 MP f/1.9 wide-angle lens
  • 8-Megapixel front selfie camera f/1.7 and ToF sensors
  • Hi-Fi Quad DAC, Boombox Speaker, Google Assistant button, FM Radio
  • 3,500 mAh battery with fast and wireless charging (up from 3,000 on G7)
  • IP68 Water & dust resistant, USB Type-C, Rear fingerprint scanner
  • Crystal Sound OLED Speaker (the entire display)

  • Platinum Gray, Black, Blue, and Red color options

As you can see these phones have the same size screen, high resolutions, the same powerful processor and multiple cameras. However, Samsung wins in a few spots and LG wins in other areas. 

The Galaxy S10 has more RAM for improved multi-tasking, but the LG G8 has a slightly bigger battery. The Galaxy S10 has triple cameras on the back while the LG G8 has better sound thanks to a Quad-DAC and the entire AMOLED display turning into a speaker. Which, by the way, is pretty awesome technology and makes highs (voice) sound great during calls or music. 

Either way, this race is closer than you probably expected. They're both great phones but the Galaxy S10 does have a little more tech packed inside.
