In our second installment of “Big Phones, Dual Cameras” we’re moving to the real showdown.

Android 7 Nougat vs Android 7 Nougat. LG’s software skin vs Huawei EMUI. A large 5.9″ 1080p screen against a big 5.7″ 1440p display. The Qualcomm 820 chipset vs the Kirin 960 octa-core cpu. These two phones pair up well against each other, delivering high end hardware, premium build quality, gobs of custom software, and some incredible photography features.

Huawei has been impressing lately. The Mate 9 is a formidable foe, so it only makes sense to pit it against one of our favorite multimedia smartphones of the year. LG now faces the second generation Leica dual camera system. Will its incredible headphone performance and durable build quality eke out the victory?

It’s time for a showdown! Which phone wins? You decide in our viewer poll!
