LG G7 vs OnePlus 6: which upcoming phone are you more excited for?

OK, so as far as we know, we are in for a double treat this late April / early May. Industry veteran LG is about to unveil its new flagship — supposedly called G7 ThinQ — and the fairly new kid on the block OnePlus will also be releasing its “2018 flagship killer” — the OnePlus 6.

OnePlus 6 is one of the hottest smartphones yet to be unveiled, even though we know quite a lot of things about the upcoming flagship.
