Should you purchase the Samsung Galaxy S7 or decide on the LG G5? One more year, another dubious choice on which lead smartphone is justified regardless of your cash.
Stress not, because Xreporters has experienced the troublesome choice process for you. We’ve weighed up which smartphone is best, comparing design, display, specifications, camera, battery life and more.
Neither one of the phones is out just yet, despite the fact that pre-requests are currently open for two of the current year’s most exciting smartphones. Presently’s an ideal opportunity to kick back and consider which one you need to get as your next smartphone.
Specifications and performance : LG G5 vs Samsung Galaxy S7
Gossipy tidbits have it that Samsung’s Galaxy S7 could include two distinct processors upon discharge. Vodafone has shown the S7 will keep running all alone Exynos 8890 chip – a development of the S6 processor – yet there are murmurings that different regions will see S7s running on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820.
Whatever remains of the S7’s specs are reasonably commonplace. It has 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage space (with up to 200GB more via microSD), runs Android Marshmallow and has IP68 dust and water resistance too. It also has a 15% bigger battery, pushing the S6’s 2,550mAh power pack to 3,000mAh – the S7 Edge goes even larger to 3,600mAh. The S7 also has watercooling functionality to help eke out even more from its CPU and GPU.
While the LG G5 is modular, its core specs won’t change. Every G5 comes with a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and a microSD slot, and a 2,800mAh removable battery. It also has a modular expansion slot, should you wish to add functionality via a bigger camera or audio module, or even snazzy VR glasses.
Design : LG G5 vs Samsung Galaxy S7
Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were a world separated from the Galaxy phones that preceded. They were well proportioned, premium and felt like a transformation for Samsung’s mobile hardware. For the Galaxy S7, however, Samsung has chosen to just refine what preceded.
Interestingly, Samsung has taken yet another leaf from Apple’s book, producing a slightly littler 5.1in S7 nearby the 5.5in Galaxy S7 Edge. Beside a slight size difference and the Edge’s curved display, both phones are identical. Buttons and ports are also in similar places to where they were on the S6.
LG, then again, has given the G5 a complete update. Thanks to the G5’s new modular design,, you’d be unable to trust the G4 and G5 were even identified with each other.
While the G4 was beautiful and strong, the G5 looks rather dull and – some might say – rather appalling. Fitting with its design ethos, the G5 surely looks functional, but in doing so it loses a considerable measure of the appeal of its antecedent. Still, it’s not all awful: the back mounted fingerprint reader feels awesome, and LG has at long last moved the volume catches from the telephone’s back onto its side.
The G5 should also be commended for its creative utilization of measured parts and how it considers that flawlessly the phone’s design. As far as immaculate feel, however, there’s one and only champ here.
Display : LG G5 vs Samsung Galaxy S7
Samsung has for some time been known for amazing cell phone displays, and with the Galaxy S7 things are the same. It has a 5.1in Super AMOLED display with a 1,440 x 2,560 resolution – the same determination found on the Galaxy S6. The S7 Edge brandishes the same determination, however over a 5.5in screen.
The LG G5 has chosen to change out the G4’s bended 5.5in screen for a littler 5.3in display. Don’t worry, the resolution hasn’t dropped, guaranteeing that its 1,440 x 2,560 screen is still super-sharp with a pixel thickness of 554ppi.
We’ll have the capacity to survey the LG G5 and Samsung Galaxy S7 screens for splendor and responsiveness when we get both in for audit. Until then, we just have raw specifications to go off, and as both sport the same determination (but the G5’s is over a marginally bigger zone), it’s too close to call.
It’s difficult to know how each phone performs until the review units begin to appear at our desks. Until then, we’ll have to go by raw specs, which are reasonably similar – but the LG G5 loses out on stock battery, watercooling and water resistance.
