LG G8 ThinQ vs Apple iPhone XS

Alex Kidman 7 March 2019 NEWS

How does LG's new flagship stack up against Apple's super-popular iPhone XS?

The battle between iOS and Android smartphones is one that's often bitterly fought. If you're a die-hard Apple user, or equally entrenched in the Android camp, the mere thought of crossing the lines might seem abhorrent.

If you're more in the middle of this fight, it makes sense to pick the handset that works best for you as a combination of specifications, features and price. With that in mind, how do LG's new LG G8 ThinQ and Apple's iPhone XS compare?

The LG G8 ThinQ isn't expected to arrive in Australia for some months, but we've already had the chance to go hands-on with the LG G8 ThinQ, which you can read here.
