And it has superior cooling so you cant say it will be warmer. I am sure LG G5 will throttle and the S7 with SD820 and Exynos wont very often.
Despite all attempts....this article is obviously biased against the G5 as made obvious by the "kitchen sink" comment. LG can do no right against Samsung despite the fact that it has few
weaknesses. The 12mp camera in the S7 is an attempt at being more like Apple, and they
charge an Apple premium for their phones as well. The G5's camera is more well rounded
but the Author makes no attempt to state this.

Hence to actually the s7 edge still struggles on multi tasking. Even saw a YouTube video Erica Griffin actually used the s7 edge and still struggles on big apps.
xeroxxxxxxxxx, 29 Feb 2016Switching apps is multi tasking . How do you even use multiple apps if you Dont switch ?Touchwiz gives you true multitasking. Where you can use more than one app at a time without switching.
Oh and the aggressive ram management has been solved, but as I said, it was inconsequential as you wouldn't be using more than 6 apps at a time so it didn't matter either way.
till now why i`ll go for G5. 1- in consideration of proccesor performance.. they are all flagship this days going too well.. i mean ok every application its made to run perfectly even on lower stats phones.. 2- camera ? well as long as you don`t care how photo looks on a TV 100000 inch and you maximum zoom for i don`t know what detail.. and look most of the video/photos on ur phone well guess all phones this days doing a verry good job.. 3- battery? well they have fast charge.. so.. we got used that normaly you pass 1 day but if you go useing ur GSP for 3-4 hours with display ON.. you will not finish the day and need to charge the phone 2 times in 1 day.. but charging the phone its not a problem with fast charging so ... guess they are all same with + or - 300 mah 500mah.. same thing.. we just need a new techology on batterys.. this lition tech its more the 10 years old and its same thing on all phones... that`s how i see about phones.. now what pring this phones to me..
S7 edge.. (s7 normal not even look at it) it gives probably best design ever . a verry good design and watterproof system.. in a bit part that`s what offers. rest.. now the bad part in there is a non removal battery it means that in time.. that quality of battery will die. i got a old phone of mine like 7 years old.. and yea .. battery die waayy faster then i used when was new. now.. not haveing a usb-c it give the feeling like in 1-2 max years definetly i will look for a new phone. the curve display its indeed verry verry good looking part. i love it but i don`t use case on phones and i have a fiew friends that have s6 edge and they have some cracks on display haveing no idea how thos cracks apear in there. but if you use a case there will be no problem at all. so in a big part.. offer the best design and watterproof.. in the other hand the G5.. it give he strust that after 1-2 years i`ll not be interested to buy a new phone.. i mean .. usb-c i know its the future.. i know in time there will be more modulars for me wich who knows what will be next .. so i can stick with this phone.. now fast charging no problem.. more then that 1 accesori to charge the second battery at home.. and every time when i get home i just unplug the used one put the new 100% in phone and the old at charging well i use that method now and i can say i really enjoy it. so watterproof vs removable battery .. don`t know for me i meet more times low battery and be verry happy when plug a new battery and be 100% charged and ready to go happen more times then haveing problems with watter.. actualy till now i got no problems with watter and i even use phones in the rain with no watterproof phones. so .. the second battery comes only sometimes.. cose no matter what phone you have.. there will always be some days when ur low battery and you really wana be 100% again fast and no time to charging or stay with a bank battery till it charge a bit. then at g5 well i can listen to music.. you can do that with any phone in standard mode.. but me ? it happen many times to connect phones to a audio system via jack cable.. and i can say haveing chanse to use a dedicated sound card on a phone ? hmm it is nice to have it.. even if i don`t use it every day but its there and helps from time to time .. its still better then don`t ahve it as most of the phone... as camera you have standard cameras veerry good cameras on both design but 1 thing it give me as +G5.. well the posibility to catch more things on 1 picture? well it happen to me manny times to go back with the phone and wanted to get more things in 1 pic. or video.. so again +1 G5.. so .. in 1 hand i have beauty s7 edge.. + watterproof.. and in the other g5 with not beauty as edge but i still really like it + more things that makes phone more easyer to use.. now the only sad part its the UI.. sadly all phones i mean ALL have such a ugly UI.. i mean thos icons looks verry familiar with 10 years old icons no details no nothing in special when you drag settings from up.. verry old on all phones.. now.. you guys stop saying ohh that phone is the best that phone is not.. becose at the end.. there are difrent phones cose there are diferent persons.. i`m an example who g5 its by far best phone for me till now.. and definetly there are a lot of people who will say s7 is by far best phone for them ..
for low light picture, why LG G5 better than S7, after view this review, S7's camera not that impressive as i think, should wait their Britecell sensor release, don't rush to change this model
gcristian, 02 Mar 2016Maybe , maybe not. Cant guarantee about Exynos vs SD but my guess is that Exynos will be a bit... moreThey are even made in a equally efficient manufacturing process (kirin and exynos). There is indeed a possibility, that the 12 Mali cores in the exynos, depending on integration, need less power than the 4 Mali kirin cores - at the same load. But to they have the same load? No, first, Samsung renders everything with a lot more pixels, that's a higher load. Second, if a process causes them to max out, then both max out. Unless with CPUs, there the work is faster done and the faster CPU can rest more, GPUs often do animations that take the same time.
In favor for the galaxy, most animations are capped at 60fps so I could imagine, with the same screen resolution, they could archive similar power efficiency in a normal day use. But with the constant higher load of the qhd screen, no way, galaxy needs more power and the gpu will produce more heat.

Cant guarantee about Exynos vs SD but my guess is that Exynos will be a bit warmer. But for exynos vs kirin i can definitely say, they have same GPU but exynos has 3 times more cores. How can 12 cores use less power than 4 if they are exactly the same chip?
At first look, G5 is not good looking. But now G5 looks good. Why? Can anyone explain?

LG is offering you extended opportunities through it's modularity, where third person additions are welcome. And I am sure LG will offer a module or two free with the G5 when it becomes available. So don't sweat and don't expect everything to be free. For all you know, the future of smartphone might be modular and this is just the beginning.
lg g5 is far better than s7 family.in mwc sony has x performance and that isn't g5 competitor. I wait for htc m10 and choice between g5 and m10.good bye samcheat and lagwiz

LG camera is superior!for lowlight picture the G5 manual shutterspeed setting can be used to get brighter pictures at night.

But that tegra uses Kepler GPU cores which draw lots of power which is not the case here. Again, i am not stating that SD is better that Exynos, i think Qualcomm did a great move shifting from octa with their performance chipset. I think CPU in modern chipsets are strong enough, my mate8 has an awesome CPU but not the best GPU. GPU has only 4 cores opposed to 12 in Exynos. As a result Kirin 950 stays cool even when it's charging and i use it pretty hard. If Kirin would have 12 cores IT might be at The same level with Exynos în benchmarks. It will always be a compromise :)

LG addons will never become a standard because it will be just for LG. Everything LG adds on can be built in the phone. You cant have built in removable sd card. So it is not the same on any basis.
