The addons or modules are useless in real life scenarios. I had a G2 and that was a fantastic device in terms of aspect ratio and battery life. S7 edge looks similar. Unfortunately we represent a small percentage of customers and there will be hoards of idiots falling for this module shit.
Barameus, 28 Feb 2016speaking of battery in 2015, almost all phone is bad (except samsung with exynos), i blame s... moreMaybe, maybe not. The g3 has a bigger battery than the g5 and had about the same battery life as the g4. You also have to remember the g4 used the SD 808 so it had less performance, no doubt that should have saved it some battery. I wouldn't be too hopeful for the g5 battery, unless you're using the ugly camera attachment that makes the phone more than twice as thick.
The plain fact is that mobile phones has reached its plateau, there's nothing left to add, what's left to do is just perfecting what you already have and Samsung has done that very nicely with the s7edge, moreover there's some price to pay like some missing features in the s7( e.g usb type c) otherwise they've done well. As for lg g5, there's nothing to say, its so called innovation was too drastic thereby making the lg g5 ugly, infact the lg g5 takes the crown for the most ugliest phone mwc 2016. But there's also a feature called affordability which these big brands don't seem to get, and that's where the mi 5 comes in. When i was in school, i was taught technology was to make things better and affordable, that's the whole essence of technology and the xiaomi group has truly fulfilled the purpose of technology.
lg g5 is beter than s7,,, because :
beter camera in OVERALL : beter video camera : daylight camera at the same level :even I see a article that shows lg g5 is realy beter... u can see here :
beter ui like stock android
modular design : other companies can make extera future accessory for g5 : its amazing
nice front design "beter than s7" and acceptable back design " in real life g5 is so nice "u must give it in your hand than u realize that the g5 is good looking phone..

i blame snapdragon for this, especially 810.
lg did very good battery in g2 and gflex,
this time in2016 with 820 is different story, im sure it will be better.
Mr.TGS, 28 Feb 2016Obviously LG G5 should be a better option than Samsung s7 edge, as LG G5 is more customizable ... moreMate, Samsung offers a range of cases with wireless battery charge, with a bigger upgrade in a small size, so that lost it for you

I be thinking a big part of this is ram managerment and the oled screen
G5, Crowned best device MWC 2016
removable battery, capable of crazy thing in the future due to it expansion, not to beauty from the back (but paid by the best camera), attractive from the front or side, infrared,radio,usb type c, more durable, best performance.
samsung, beauty but fragile, waterproof, but no radio, no infrared, no usb type c.
give us something but take away other things, you play around with us samsung.
so this time i go for LG G5.

But nowadays they degrade slower so it doesn't matter. Plus I've had 3 phones with removable battery and I've never utilised the feature before.
Anonymous, 28 Feb 2016Do you seriously suggest to make my phone twice as big? Apple's hunchback is atrocious for mor... moreI should add that the hunchback of the g5 camera attachment makes it more than twice as thick. And where does it do that? On the bottom, the side which is more likely to be where you hold it. It may as well have covered the whole phone.
Its not like most people will be switching it on or off as you need to turn the phone off just to do that. So you would either take it or leave it. Also worth mentioning that it would be difficult to put a case on top of it, even if there are cases made for the camera bump, would you really want it to be even thicker? Remember, cases are extremely popular, especially with top end phones, they're expensive after all.
2015 flagships already had great day camera and displays, but they had really weak battery and were too big. LG, the former bezel master has lost the plot and after G2, they had the worst battery performance amongst flagships. G5 is a sad degradation with yet bigger bezels weight and yet lesser battery. Its a crime to launch a 2.5k display with such battery, they should be ashame of themselves, hats off to Samsung for the 76% scrren to body ratio despite the 3500mah and waterproofness!
Dan.b, 28 Feb 2016How? They're both brilliant phones (assuming they work as they should). What more did you want? I want simple things like stereo speakers, bigger screen, IR,

Neither. If I was forced to choose it would be the s7. But I hate the edge design. I hate the bulky g5 design even more. Neither suit my lifestyle. While the s7 meets my performance needs, it's just too prone to damage from dropping as I work outside alot. I'm thrilled they brought the SD card slot back though and waterproofing is always a plus. I'll wait until Samsung comes out with either the s8 or s7 "non-edge".
samer1970, 28 Feb 2016both have gaming features .. they have the same GPUYou wrong, there is a real game mode where you can change res setting and turn the keys off and so on, that and the s7 edge got a heat pipe, so will game for way longer (plus bigger screen, makes a big deal with my s6 edge plus over the normal edge), plus better battery size to start with and a range of wiresless battery cases of needed
GSMArena, 28 Feb 2016Vote for LG G5. Give support to the most daring smartphone of all time! Sorry I am lost to whets daring about the G5, all it's doing is using the USB type c port to do its magic, you even have to power off the phone you do use it

The stupid thing is lg were making fun of the silly case when it came out and then made the same thing.
