While most of the craze is surrounding the budget segment of the smartphone market, a lot of people are still enticed by premium level smartphones since they are a class above the rest. And the premium market has a lot to offer in that respect.
The smartphone business, irrespective of the price category, is soaring high. And keeping pace with all others in the game, the Indian smartphone market is also moving ahead among the top players in the International market.
But that isn't really a big surpise, of sorts. With devices now arriving thick and fast, it's only natural that the market will grow and evolve with every passing day.
And with more new handsets set to arrive before the year comes to a close, we are looking toward quite the finale in terms of technological advancements in this field.
Currently, two smartphones that are trying out their luck in the market are the new LG G3 and the previously released Sony Xperia Z2. As you may have understood by now, both fall under the premium category, and are hence priced accordingly.
So if we were to take both the smartphones together and seek to make a comparsion between both, who do you think will stand a better chance? We take a closer look.

LG G3 Vs Sony Xperia Z2: Verdict
Have you been reading up on the LG G3 since its release? If you did, you will know that it has arrived as probably one of the best handsets in the market this year. While devices such as the Samsung-made Galaxy S5 or the HTC One M8 are still in the market, the G3 comes as a major rival.
While not taking anything away from the Sony Xperia Z2 and all the rich specs it provides alongside it, we have to say that the G3 takes the cake with its next gen technology and a massive qHD display (let alone its laser camera). In fact, if any of these premium phones are set for big things in the long run, the G3 has more chances of hitting the bulls-eye.
