Xperia XZ3, Galaxy Note 9 and Huawei P20 Pro

We have just started October and we already have the first of many presentations of devices on the table: The LG V40 has already seen the light. The new LG top line is here and comes to burst the high-end market positioning itself as the next device after the Huawei P20 to have triple rear camera.

It is not far behind, and we also have not only 2 other front cameras, but a hardware category. As usual, we face the squad of high-end phones that make it a direct competition: we have chosen the Sony Xperia XZ3, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and the Huawei P20 Pro.

Comparison of titans: triple chamber is imposed

As usual, we have made a table in which we compare directly to the terminals they face. We will see many things in common, especially when it comes to design and power. But one thing is clear: the triple camera has come to stay.

The first thing we are going to compare between these terminals is the design, and here are things to comment on. The LG V40, as a good high-end device, It is made of glass and metal Exactly like his brothers. Both the Galaxy Note 9, the Sony Xperia XZ3 and the Huawei P20 Pro have their own range finishes, with a construction that oozes premium on all sides.

The most striking thing about the LG V40 against these rivals is its use of the notch on its 6.4 inch screen. In this matter it strongly resembles the Huawei P20 Pro that also maintains it. But we believe that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and the Sony Xperia XZ3 differ much more by dispensing with this by smaller frames and above all by curved edges.

This point is critical because it places the V40 in a position that is not too encouraging, since it is not differentiating or groundbreaking. Yes, its 5 cameras stand out and give it a touch that makes it recognizable. But we believe that in terms of aesthetics something is left behind.

Not so in terms of materials, since except for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and its AMOLED screen all share almost the same technology: the V40 debuts a 6.4 inch OLED panel in front of the panels also OLED of Huawei and Sony. The undisputed king is Samsung in this regard, although LG must demonstrate that this panel is up to par. Until we can prove it, we will be cautious.

The power war is divided between Qualcomm, Exynos and Kirin. The V40 premieres the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 which also gives life to the Sony Xperia XZ3 and while Samsung opts for its Exynos 9810 at the same time as Huawei, which remains true to its Kirin 970 series.

While each and every one of these processors will give more than good performance to any user who buys them, if you are looking for the maximum power possible, perhaps the best alternatives are those of Sony, LG and Samsung. The HiSilicon Kirin riding the P20 Pro is far from bad, it's a beast. But perhaps he lacks a power point against his rivals.
