Is the Samsung Galaxy S8 the fastest phone right now?LG's G6 and Samsung's Galaxy S8 are going head to head this month, but which is the faster phone? And does that even matter anymore? Plus, YouTube TV is a good start, but not great.
[MUSIC] What's happening. Brian Tong here, and welcome to Googlicious for all the Google you can think of. Now this is a prime month for the cream of the crop with Android phones. The LG G6 Officially went on sale on the US on April the 7th and the Galaxy S8 will drop on April the 21st. So which one is really faster in the real world between the two? Well we know the S8 is using the latest Snap Dragon 835, in fact it's the only phone that have it right now Now while LG is using the last year's Snap Dragon 821 and this was in order to get their phone out before the S8. Instead of waiting it out to get supplies of the 835s the Samsung pretty much hoarded for themselves. Now there are several videos. [INAUDIBLE] online and they aren't really scientific but the general consensus is that the S8 is faster in real world tests when it comes to booting up the phone or opening up apps versus the LG G6, but it's only faster by a second or in many cases with apps, just a hair of a second. Now speed matters but these are really small incremental games you see these days year to year, but right now, the Galaxy S8 is the fastest booting phone on the market [INAUDIBLE] the iPhone 7plus Galaxy S7 Edge and now the LG G6. All right, the YouTube TV service officially rolled out last week, pitting it directly with Sling TV, DirectTV Now and PlayStation View. It brings a familiar YouTube interface with DVR capabilities for shows at $35 a month. The biggest catch it's only available in five cities right now. Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, and the Bay Area. One drawback is that you have to use a Chromecast or cast compatible device. To get it on your big screen until Google makes an actual app for Apple TV. Roku, and Amazon Fire. Now, I know it's for mobile users. But you still want to watch TV easily on your TV. It also has your big four networks. ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC. But it lacks channels from Time Warner and Viacom, so that means no CNN, TNT, Comedy Central Or AMC, now the service right now is good but it's not great because of its lack of cities and for $35 you're not really getting all of the core channels that people expect out of a cable service. But if the cable package works for you then I think you'll. You'll like it but it has plenty of work to do to get more for cities and tv networks that really rival what the others are doing. All right it's been rumored for awhile but a new card in the Discover tab of the Google Home app shows that the Google Home will have multiple user support. The feature isn't live at the moment but the idea is to allow Google Home to have a personalized experience for each user in the house. Roomers playing the speaker will then be able to recognize individual voices in order to automatically switch accounts. This isn't as big as google. Start handling basic options like reminders, sending messages, and trading taller events that hasn't been available yet once you get individual user setup. Thanks in advance. Alright the LPG syncing Galaxy SA are the Android phones rate pro. But there's still a lot of waiting and see. What can Google do for a follow up to the well received Google Pixel, and really, my personal Android phone of choice? Now the next-gen Pixel might feature a flexible OLED display from LG according to the Electronic Times in South Korea that claims [UNKNOWN] has offered to make $880 million investment in LG's display division. Now that offer could change, but Google's looking for a stable supply of flexible OLEDs for their next pixel phone. Apple signed a similar type of deal with Samsung to ensure they'll have the screens they need for their next iPhone dropping later this year. But just remember what Google did with With our first phone ever. The Pixel 2 could be special. All right, that's gonna do it for this week.
