Battle of the Triple Cameras: Huawei Mate 20 Pro vs LG V40 ThinQ

One of the many smartphone trends in 2018 was the increased number of cameras. We’re seeing more devices with dual cameras on the front and even more with two, three, or more on the rear. The LG V40 ThinQ and Huawei Mate 20 Pro both feature triple rear cameras. While they share the same number of rear cameras, these two devices have a ton of differences. Our friends over at Pocketnow compared these two beasts in the video below. Which triple camera phone do you think is the best?
