LG G5 vs. Samsung Galaxy S7 edge: Flagship slugfest

24 February, 2016
This is why we love the MWC - some of the best phones of the year were announced almost side by side. Two of the headliners are the LG G5 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and we know how heated the competition between G-series and Galaxy flagship can get.

Sorry, but lg g5 doesn't have direct support to custom google cameras, also 120fps slow mo is very outdated that year for such flagship models.

Have you used both phones for one day straight? Did you shot any photos or watched any 4k movie on them? Definitely no. So shut up and do your homework cuz' you don't know what you're talking about.

The comparison chart on the first page is wrong. This is how it should be:

The G5's advantages over S7 Edge:
- better camera:
Despite S7 edge has brighter (f1.7) aperture, G5 captures better photos at low light.
- removable battery:
Who cares if S7 edge has 3600mAh battery if it is non-removable? Non-removable battery means the phone is just a disposable phone because it has limited lifespan because battery degrades / loses capacity over time and you won't be able to replace it.
- better screen
G5 has IPS LCD which is better than AMOLED because all AMOLED screens are going to burn in. It's another factor why the S7 Edge is a disposable phone with short lifespan.
- no curved screen and metal body instead of the fragile glass on S7 Edge
- FM Radio
- Infrared port

The S7 Edge's advantages over G5
- heatsink pipes to dissipate heat from CPU and GPU
- a software option (Game Launcher) to reduce screen resolution when playing games to save battery life and improve gaming performance

I have both the S7 Edgw and G5, while the battery does indeed last longer on the S7 touchwiz lags everywhere (sorry Samsung fans but it does) also camera like the G4 is best camera on an android phone.

AnonD-527495, 18 Apr 2016But it is low light and it has dual pixels unlike lg has single pixelSingle Pixel? There's nothing like single pixel AF. And that Dual Pixel is an AF technology typically used in some canon cameras it has nothing to do with 'mp' or resolution. Less Resolution means less details but better low light performance but S7 doesn't have better low light performance than G5 in most conditions and 16mp is way much more detailed than 12mp. S7 is not best when it comes to camera.
