Pixel 2 XL vs LG V30: Specs

We know the overall specs don't matter to everyone, but it is a big deal for some. Here's how the two compare by the numbers. 

Google Pixel 2 XL Specs

  • 6-inch 2880 x 1440 Quad-HD OLED Display
  • Snapdragon 835 Processor with 4GB of RAM 
  • 64/128GB storage options, no micro-SD slot
  • Android Oreo
  • 12.2 Megapixel Rear camera with f/1.8 aperture and OIS 
  • 8MP front-facing camera
  • Dual Front-Facing Stereo Speakers
  • 3,520 mAh battery with Quick Charging
  • IP67 Dust & Water-Resistance
  • Google Assistant, Google Lens, more
  • USB Type-C port, fingerprint scanner on back
  • No 3.5mm headphone jack, no wireless charging

Sounds pretty good, right? It comes with a big battery, plenty of power, the latest version of Android and water-resistance. The V30 has most of that too. 

LG V30 Specs

  • 6-inch 2880 x 1440 Quad-HD OLED Display
  • Snapdragon 835 Processor with 4GB of RAM 
  • 64 GB of storage and microSD expansion
  • Android 7.1.2 Nougat
  • 16 Megapixel f/1.6 rear camera, 13MP secondary wide-angle camera 
  • 5MP front-facing camera
  • Single bottom-firing speaker
  • 3,300 mAh battery with Quick Charging
  • IP68 Dust & Water-Resistance
  • Google Assistant, Quad-DAC, 3.5mm headphone jack and more
  • USB Type-C port, fingerprint scanner on back
  • Wireless Charging capable

As you can see there are a few differences, even if the first half of each list is the same. The LG V30 has expandable storage, two cameras, wireless charging, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a dedicated DAC for improved audio. 

On the flipside, the LG V30 has a smaller battery and runs an older version of Android. 

Take note of the water-resistance levels. The Pixel 2 XL is IP67 and rated for 3 ft of water for 20-30 minutes. The V30 is IP68 and can go under 5 ft of water for over 30 minutes. So it's ahead there if you're accident prone. 

The Pixel will get better battery life, runs the latest version of Android, and gets a lot of unique features directly from Google. It's a hard choice, we know.
