  • Overview:This one comes down to what size screeen you think you need, to be fair 5.5-inch is big, yet the 6.3-inch will allow you to see everything and give that web browsing, film watching and game playing a different dimension.

    There is a 0.9-inch differnce the larger Note8 also an edge to edge screen which adds the extra viewing experience, but looks the part too.

  • Overview:WOW there is a vast difference in size, of corse the NOte8 has to accomodate the huge 6.3-inch screen.

    If your a size person though the 20mm smaller Q6 in height and a 5.5mm width difference, aswell as a 0.5mm slimmer depth, makes it the more compact of them both.

    If you are bothered about weight then the LG is a whopping 46g lighter.

  • Overview:The larger 3300mah note8 battery will bring alot more standby, yet that battery will be required to keep up the huge screen.

    Memory



  • Internal Memory
    16 gb / 32gb / 64gb
  • CardSlot
    microsd, up to 256 gb
  • Internal Memory
    64gb
  • CardSlot
    microsd, up to 256 gb
  • Overview:Alternative storage sizes for the LG mean more of an alternative, but of course will come at a greater price. The standard 64GB offered on the Galaxy aensures you can pack plenty in.

    Both have Micro-sd card slots and the ability to get huge sized cards even upto 256GB which realy would extend the memory capacity.

  • Overview:It's very close but the main camera on the Q6 is a 13 MP and on the Note8 it is a 12 MP, bringing us a difference of 1MP, with the Q6 on a winner.

    YOu proobably would have thought that the later would have a better camera produced than the 12 MP it ended up with, does this say to us that Samsung think that is all that is actually required for now.

    Overview:The expected result of a huge higher price for the Note8, it all depends how much of a budget you have and what you require from a phone.



    Conclusion:There will be a lot to consider if your choice is between these 2 handsets, as they are 2 different s,artphones sitting in 2 different categories.

    If you are after a big screen you need to decide you you are after a huge screen for the huge price or will a modest 5.5 inch be fine for the much lower, not so pocket emptying model.

    Couple all this with water resistance and a dual camera, the note8 is an overall far better phone, but yet again ill the LG Q6 do exactly the job?
