LG is already mocking Samsung's Galaxy S7

22 February, 2016

Yesterday the two biggest Korean smartphone makers both unveiled their respective flagship smartphones for 2016. The Samsung Galaxy S7 and LG G5 each have their own strengths, of course, and you can read more about those in our detailed hands-on reports for them.

Today, mere 24 hours after they've both had their big events, LG has already taken to Twitter to mock its main competitor's new smartphone.

LG obviously thinks its G5 is better than the Galaxy S7, and wants you to know that too. Apparently the number "7" is better used in a list of 'friends of the G5' instead of the name of a new handset. Or something along those lines.

LG clearly wants to emphasize the modularity of the G5, which is one area where Samsung's Galaxy S7 simply can't compete. On the other hand, it remains to be seen whether this will actually have any effect on sales of the two devices - LG would like that to be a positive one for the G5 and a negative effect for the S7. But given the history of the two brands, that could be unlikely.

Thanks for the tip, Jimmy!
