Results: same price, different beasts – would you buy the LG G6 or OnePlus 5?

OnePlus started its career in the smartphone world back in 2014, with the super-aggressively priced OnePlus One. A flagship-specced phone for $300? Yes, please! The company quickly garnered fandom and started to sneak its way into the limelight. With each year, OnePlus has also been inching towards a more respectable price-tag, too. Of course, that’s the cost of growth — it’s unrealistic to maintain an operation that barely makes a profit on its product. So, now, the OnePlus 5 costs either $480 or $540, depending on which storage / RAM variant you go for.

All the …

Last month, LG announced an upgraded version of its G6 flagship smartphone – the LG G6+ (or LG G6 Plus, if you will). Unlike the regular G6, which has 32 GB of internal memory (at least in the US), the G6+ comes with 128 GB of storage space.

While the G6+ is already available to buy in South Korea, LG didn’t say anything about the handset’s release in the US, and it’s likely that the company doesn’t plan to officially launch this upgraded G6 stateside. However, if you just must have an LG G6+, you can now order one via Amazon.
