After the launching of the iPhone 6 Plus, it has often been compared with one of LG’s latest offerings, the G3. Although both devices have 5.5-inch screens, they may have more differences than similarities.
Looking into more details, LG’s flagship boasts a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels that provides a highly rich experience for users, whereas Apple’s offering provides 1344 x 750 resolution, significantly lower than that of the G3. Nonetheless, with 16:9 aspect ratio, such device still offers clear and detailed images and videos.
In terms of storage and memory, the LG G3 is available only in a 16 GB or 32 GB version, but can be expanded as it supports microSD cards of up to 128 GB.
On the other hand, the iPhone Plus does not come with a microSD slot but offers 16 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB models. The device also provides a cloud storage option and a greater capacity for internal storage options. Users can utilize 5 GB of cloud storage, free of charge, along with the Photo Stream for one’s pictures.
The LG G3 comes with a 13-megapixel camera, whereas the iPhone 6 Plus features an 8-megapixel camera that is similar to a previous model, the iPhone 5S. As such, the G3 is expected to snap photos and capture clips that are of higher quality. It also allows users to shoot 4K videos, which the iPhone is not capable of doing. Nonetheless, the iPhone 6 Plus comes with faster auto-focus and wide angle lens.
A Snapdragon 801 chip set that comes with a 2.5 Ghz quad-core processor has been incorporated into the LG G3, which runs on the Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system. With the special Andreno 330 GPU, such device has been praised for the graphics it generates, which are comparable to those of game consoles.
Meanwhile, the iPhone 6 Plus makes use of the new A8 chip set that enables Apple’s offering to carry out desktop-level performance.
Other features for the LG G3 include protective recommendations from Smart Notice, new ways of unlocking the phone through the KNOCK Code, and wireless charging, among others.
The iPhone 6 Plus, on the other hand, features a new mobile payment platform, thanks to near field communication (NFC); the phone also comes with a larger battery (2915 mAh), supports third-party keyboards, and features optical image stabilization for enhanced photo capture.
