I'd like to make a SMALL amendment in regards to the camera. The LG G5 outperforms the S7 in every way EXCEPT for low light. But the difference between the two in low light, the S7 performs a bit better, but comparing the 2 photo's, no one would know or care about the difference because it's so minor unless you're a photo snob which you shouldn't/wouldn't be using a phone for photo's in the first place.
Also to add, when the G5 battery gets low, although i predict 90h over S7's 80h's, you could plug your phone in for a whopping 5-10 minutes ANYWHERE and have approximately 80% battery. There's NO WAY i will complain about a smaller battery when i know that it'll still last me an entire day, and if it doesn't i can just plug it in for less than half an hour to get a full charge back.
The UI on the LG G5, i may not agree with the deletion of the app drawer, it'll take getting used to, but it's a much cleaner UI to look at than the S7's oddly colored settings menu that bothers me to look at. Everything has to be a whole bunch of colors for some reason on TouchWiz and somehow, people like it.
Anonymous, 14 Mar 2016S7: waterproof, better design, better battery, better camera technology, super amoled screen, ... moreSo you pretty much don't know what you're talking about. Let me help you out.
LG G5: Can be waterproof with a case. Problem solved. Most people use cases anyway, as to not scratch, crack, scuff, chip the very expensive phone in the first place. You're dumb if you don't.
S7: Better Design.
LG G5: It's a mainstream design. Fits in your hand very well. It's not ugly. And it's really an opinion. I like the design, you don't. There's no right or wrong.
S7: Better Battery.
LG G5: Doesn't need a better battery. Because it's not AMOLED, it won't eat up battery life. Not to mention that it has a USB-C 3.0 which will charge SIGNIFICANTLY faster than an S7. Both phones will last an entire day on one charge. Most people today will charge their phone when they go to bed. If you somehow do eat up your battery life on the S7, it'll take alot longer to charge than the G5. So you're wrong. Bigger isn't always better.
S7: Better Camera Technology.
LG G5: Better Camera Technology. The only good thing about the S7 camera is it shoots JUST A LITTLE BETTER than the G5. The aperture is VERY close.
S7: Super AMOLED Screen.
LG G5: IPS LCD Capacitive Touchscreen. I'd rather have a screen that doesn't eat up battery, marginally less "better" than AMOLED, and also doesn't leave burning in my screen.
S7: "Capacitive On Screen Buttons which give more space to use the screen"
I have NO idea what this even means. It's a marginally larger screen but this doesn't make the device better or worse.
S7: "Fast Charger in the box"
LG G5: USB-C 3.0, which comes in the G5 box charges significantly faster than an S7's "Faster Charger in the box".
S7: Better Software. Who the hell want's to use TouchWiz?
LG G5: "nothing cool about it expect the modules which you have to separately buy and which will cost more than $50."
Okay...so these are optional...you don't have to get any mods at all. S7 will have "things" you can purchase that will cost more than $50. They just won't do as much as the G5 can.
So, in closing, stop being absolutely ignorant. You clearly don't know anything about phones, and you clearly hate LG G5 for being a strong competition.
Take your TouchWiz and MicroSD and go home.
AnonD-376965, 11 Mar 2016they are all nab battery .. litiion.. blba bla.. we need a better technology. well if is 2800... moreBut at the end of the day the S7 edge battery will last more than the G5. So good luck with your 2800 mAh battery
AnonD-514139, 13 Mar 2016Its the best ever... beats the s7 by milesS7: waterproof, better design, better battery, better camera technology, super amoled screen, heart rate monitor, capacitive on screen buttons which give more space to use the screen, fast charger in the box while LG forces you to buy separate one, exynos processor, better software, edge screen.
G5: nothing cool about it expect the modules which you have to separately buy and which will cost more than $50.
If anything LG is ripping you off because the phone itself is bad so they want you to spend more money on expensive modules
Super Innovative Device!
LG G5 honoured with: Â“The best mobile device at MWC 2016Â” !!!
I will buy LG G5 the sooner possible!!!
What was the point (besides advertising )of releasing this at MWC when they had no intention of bringing it out till months later. HTC could have done that and we would be waiting just as much. Out of the releases this is the one that interests me most but it is still too big. Just feels like ANOTHER YEAR gone by with nothing much too offer just same thing.
Gertrude, 13 Mar 2016Why no front speakers? It's getting ridiculous. Loud front speakers are a necessity. And for sorry it seems there is NOT Dolby Digital Sound also!!!!
Although the S7 is very appealing due to the waterproofing and larger batter; the LG G5 is more interesting with the modular approach and great dual camera feature. I am eagerly waiting for gsmarena to review this extensively.
