S7 Edge will easily cost 100$ or more than the LG G5. So this is actually an unfair match-up.
Obviously LG G5 should be a better option than Samsung s7 edge, as LG G5 is more customizable and more featureful. As it has its unique feature to change the back of phone with its cam plus module which extends its battery 40000mah. And LG G5 also has an plus point of dual camera which has the wide angle feature.

or build a great CPU at it's price
Peolple are saying G5 has a smaller battery compared to the new Samsung flagships. G5 has a 2800 mah battery and S7 has 3000 mah. That is not much of a difference in the real world. May be compared to the S7 edge it has a smaller battery but not the S7.

Lg g5. Removable battery is always an advantage. Despite the reduced battery capacity
S7 Edge because of the Exynos 8 Octa power, it has a bigger display and has that SD slot.
LG went slightly backwards with the G5, V10 and G4 are still ahead imo
[deleted post]No,Vulkan API is not a big deal... period
Devs would'nt optimise for S7 no matter the API,get used to that.
If you want to game,you go Apple route.Android as a whole sucks,no exclusive titles,late relise and usually second rate ports on great iOS firsts.The great deal is actually 'Metal' API from Apple,and you probably don't know that devs loves Apple : )
LG G5. It's just more interesting and innovative than S7. Samsung phones usually look great in reviews but when you hold them in your hand they are just ordinary.
S7 Edge obviously, in my opinion it has the better design/looks and a bigger screen which is important for me. Both of these phones needs Vanilla-Android, though.
AnonD-263286, 28 Feb 2016Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are as close to perfection as possible. G5 has a weak battery, a mere LC... moreIt seems that you are working for Samsung marketing department :) Nice try to highlight only the good things,but what about the cons?! Let's see them:
-Bland design (as always)
-All glass,slipery and prone to shatter on first drop
-Touchwiz (well this should be counted as cons twice) : )
-Downgraded camera since last gen (in good lightning)
-average selfie cam + below average loudspeaker
P.S.i would'nt count non removable battery as a con,since its water resistant... And want to be fair
That LG G5 is the Ugliest Phone I've seen in my life. No damn Joke.
Are you serious LG? 2016? that phone looks like a 2007's phone. They probably can make
a good design yet they decide to go with that Ugly Sh%$@.
S7 Edge is probably the best looking phone I've seen (except that I don't like the back at all).
This comes from a Sony Fan (which is going to go for Z5 anyway, as I like the back better).
LG is out of league in the Flagship department, it could be the best phone ever (internally) and a LOT of people is not going to buy it because just seeing it, is eye-hurting.

AnonD-444894, 28 Feb 2016both have gaming features .. they have the same GPUSamsung Galaxy S7/Edge have the Vulkan gaming API which is 4 times faster than others. LG doesnt.
Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are as close to perfection as possible. G5 has a weak battery, a mere LCD display with always-on battery drainer, a crippled screen size thats not small enough and not large enough, no water and dust proofing..etc. let alone some markets will get a cheat variation with only SD652 and 3GB RAM.
On the other hand, Galaxy S7/Edge has superior design. A massive 3600 mAh battery which is a huge advantage and can last at least all day long even with heavy use. Along with the stunning world's best super AMOLED display, IP68 Water and Dust Proofing. Fast Wireless and wired chargin, Vulkan gaming API which is 4 times faster than others, and even 64GB possible storage option. Along with optional true zoom and wide angle lenses. And even wireless battery packs. With the Free Gear VR / Gear S2, Galaxy S7/Edge is clearly truly the superior choise.
I work in marketig departament for many years ...
They will sell much much much more S7 and S7 edge over Lg G5 than it appears from this statistics because 90% of their customers are people with money , which don't ever read or enter this type of sites .
Lg G5 clients are exactly the oposite ( most of them ) , they are people with little money , searching permanently to maximise what they get for their little money
Apple is even higher than Samsung here .....
