LG V50S ThinQ 5G and LG G8S ThinQ, performance comparison

LG V50S ThinQ 5G and LG G8S ThinQ size comparison. Which to choose?

The size of the body has a big influence on the ease of carrying and one-handed operation. The narrower the width, the easier it is to firmly grasp and hold, but you also have to take into account the device's thickness. Also, if the width and height are smaller, its easier to operate one-handed since its easier to extend your fingers. On the contrary, if the width and height are large, it's difficult to fit in your pocket and is bulky even when put in a bag, and portability is impaired.

The LG V50S ThinQ 5G has a width of 3.0 inches (75.8 mm), a length of 6.3 inches (159.3 mm), and a thickness of 0.3 inches (8.4 mm). Also, the LG G8S ThinQ has a width of 3.0 inches (76.6 mm), a length of 6.1 inches (155.3 mm), and a thickness of 0.3 inches (8 mm).

Comparing the width and thickness of the body, there isn't much difference between the LG V50S ThinQ 5G and LG G8S ThinQ in terms of size. For that reason, the ease of gripping and carrying the devices in one hand is about the same for both. Therefore it's better to compare them in terms of performance and functionality.

Comparing the width and thickness of the body, there isn't a large difference in size between the LG V50S ThinQ 5G and the LG G8S ThinQ. For that reason their one-handed operability, portability, and bulkiness when carried is about the same. That's why I think it's better to compare them in terms of other aspects of performance and functionality.

Comparing the overall size of the two devices, there isn't a big difference in size between the LG V50S ThinQ 5G and the LG G8S ThinQ. For that reason the ease of carrying and use with one hand is about the same for both. That's why it is better to compare the two in terms of other aspects of performance and functionality.
