Anonymous, 10 Feb 2017Good point. Nobody else mentioned the V20's shattergate (fragile camera glass)."Shattergate" has been a fluke overall. The amount of reports has dwindled drastically since November 2016 (just after release). While, yes the sheet may be more susceptible to focus pressure, it is nowhere near as bad what some want you to think.

In samsung's S7 case performance on the Mate9 is better, but i think either way it would come to phone size preference.
ithehappy, 09 Feb 2017Neither of these phone have any better camera than S7 or Pixel or iP7, their skins are also on... moreWay better battery, 0,4 inch larger screen with the same size phone if we are talking about the bigger versions (other than that it's just a size preference), because Iphone and Pixel are the king of bezels, and what for, no extra battery no stereo front facing speakers on either, outdated design... Same performance for a lower price, no real life advantage in performance, no IR blaster and no SD card in the Iphone or Pixel... In the pixel case QHD display only make your battery worse if you don't plan to VR ...
"The LG V20 could have leveraged its more powerful GPU if LG gave users the option to reduce the screen resolution like Samsung does."
That's not true at all. In fact, you can change the screen resolution in V20. Actually LG gave users this option. The option is called "Game Battery Saver". (It's like the option that Samsung phones have.) Also the LG G5 has this option in the Android 7 update.
The photos prove that LG V20 has better camera than Huawei Mate 9. V20's photos are sharper, have better colors and more details.
The raw photos from Huawei Mate 9 have horrible discoloration, color distortion. The center of the photos have neutral white colors, while rest of the photos (edges, corners, so everything besides the center) has blue/green tint.
I agree that the wide angle camera is useless
Of course, still LG G5 has the best camera. It's better than V20. (LG used different camera in V20, therefore V20 has worse camera than G5)
vino41, 10 Feb 2017Mate 9 for me, V20's camera glass cracks easily.Good point.

Anonymous, 09 Feb 2017after the bootloop fiasco never again lgAfter the explosions, poeple still buy Samsung phones. So, don't get frustrated.
Windozeanti, 10 Feb 2017Thats only a single phone from Huawei.
LG G4, LG G5, LG v10 and LG Nexus 5x all are prone t... moreThe G4 is the only device line in LGs main line up that had bootloop issues above normal defect percentages...Hence the recall
If you want to count the rest (G5, V10, V20), you will then have to equally count defect percentages in all devices, across all manufacturers...have fun with that.
Windows-Phone-Sucks, 10 Feb 2017Boot loops occur for any brands of phones. Even the Google Nexus 6p are also hitting boot loops.Thats only a single phone from Huawei.
LG G4, LG G5, LG v10 and LG Nexus 5x all are prone to bootloop!
Mate 9 wins for me. (Personal Preference)
- Better camera
- Way better battery life
- Better screen
- Good GPU for gaming
- Better UI and features
- Less chance of it bootlooping
- Smaller bezels

[deleted post]This comment was brought to you by LG, thank you.

The V20 also has a pretty decent camera, but falls short of the S7.
The EMUI skin on the Huawei Mate 9 is even faster than Touchwiz and the google pixel. The mate 9 is the fastest Android smartphone along with the OnePlus 3t.
You cant really compare prices with the S7 as thats pretty old now (you can find it for around £300), but its definitley alot cheaper than the iPhone 7.
Lolzzzzz at all of your comments
Now a day if you buy any flagship it will do the job and gsmarena made this comparison because there isn't any new flagship around and both of the mobiles under discussion are recently got available to masses even though released way earlier
Secondly they are true phablets with large screens only exception is s7plus cause it's really compact no doubt
Else I have Mate 9 and I bought it over V20 cause there was an offer I got it for almost 400 USD here in UAE but accidentally I found a very good phablet
And I own iPhone 7 plus but my daily multimedia driver is no doubt Mate 9
Lg v20 is a very good phablet but when it comes to over all edges Mate 9 is better
And sound of mate 9 is extremely acceptable at all
Camera hell yeah
Night quality is also good not the best but good and as far as people are saying and imposing forcefully S7 edge and pixels so to all of them s7edge is history now they are only here because of the failure of Note 7 and Samsung fans have nothing to mention so that's why they are bringing it again and again
Pixels lolzzzzz what's the benefit of using android was its skins and custom roms now vanilla seriously and the excuse is speed and performance then go back and check it against op3 it beats the hell out of pixel
And if it's up to speed and performance of a smart phone then iPhones will always be ahead to androids no matter how hard I hate it and we hate it
Mate 9 is one hell of a master piece but not for idiots who just copy paste the voices of reviewers and say bla bla bla about it go and spend some money on your own buy it use and then you will love it as well
Who ever here prefer other mobile including me as well is because of the reason that they had normally invested in it nothing else and when review get negative they feel offended lolzzzzz human nature
And Samsung well Samsung is a giant and being a freak to mobiles I expect perfection from them nonetheless
