IPS is better than Amoled. Amoled suffers from burn in problem. All Amoled is going to burn in. The colors will become distorted over time. It has much shorter lifespan than IPS. ...
S7's design is horrible. Glass body which will break and scratch. The battery is non-remoable, so you can't replace it when the battery has degraded, bulged and won't hold a charge (because batteries degrade over time). Your other points are useless gimmicks.
Right. S7's camera is better than G5's. But you forget that in 2015 the LG phones had the best phone camera in the world (G4 and V10). They are better than S6 and Note 5 camera.
And it's fact that today LG and Samsung phones have the best camera. They are way ahead of the rest of the competition.
Witnessing a "fight fraticida" between the two big names in the industry mobile phones. Each manufacturer either Samsung, LG, either have both phones, and cell phones that leave much to be desired.
Personally appreciate, correctly and honestly, all the good things done by the two companies.
Both phones S7, LG5 and, are good, .....very good.
Maybe I'm subjective, but to me, it matters so much, that the phone has FM radio.

You also didn't mention the superior design, less bezels, and ip68.
And the fact that the camera is overall better.
The only advantages of Galaxy S7 are
- heat pipe cooling:
it allows the CPU/GPU to give constant performance, less prone to throttling
- gaming features:
you can reduce the resolution and framerate for power saving purpose and to improve the gaming performance
Those 2 features are what I miss from LG G5.
The advantages of G5:
- removable battery
- FM Radio
- IPS display instead of AMOLED
- infrared port
So LG G5 is better overall than S7, but G5 is not impressing at all. It's only advantage compared to LG V10 is the Snapdragon 820 SoC. If V10 had S820, it would be the best phone.
Moreover, we have to admit that the "magic slot" isn't that good.
The "magic slot" of LG G5 is gimmick, pointless and useless. Why? Because most flagship phones aready have a magic slot. It's called: microUSB port with USB OTG support.
Also you can watch TV without internet connection by using DVB-T TV tuner.
This is what I call a real magic slot.
LG G5 is the best android flagship and the most innovative phone of 2016.
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2016s7 > lg g5 > x performanceThanks for your comment. Now print the comment & paste it on china wall so that people of earth can directly see your comment on moon. You please visit nearest service centre of samsung as lg service centre can not be nearest.
Farkwarks, 06 Mar 2016The LG G5 brings something different to the table this year which is attractive to some people... moreWell said. My choice is the Galaxy s7 or Galaxy s7 edge . That's not module what the LG g5 has. that's ugly accessories, please Google. Google own Module phone coming soon
The winner will be, LG 5. You will see shortly. People will really make the difference between the two phones.
To be clear to everybody, I'm no fan of LG, nor has his Samsung.
.MATRIX, 07 Mar 2016The differences between the two phones little and. Basically they are similar. I can say that ... moreG5 has infrared port over the s7. A cool feature from s6 and previous s phones lost on the s7
The differences between the two phones little and. Basically they are similar. I can say that the LG has a slight advantage as it has FM radio.
In real life, we would look at really what's best. After 5 or 6 months.
I said, and Iisay again, it is too early to make an accurate and impartial analysis, between the two phones. Can discuss at teoretic level, only. Each of the phones they good and bad sides.
Only their behavior in a real environment, the everyday, we will show who is the best at the earliest, for over 3-4 months.
Only sales we will look, in no more than six months, which is the trend really, actually, which is better between the two phones.
To see who will win this "battle" between the two phones, i consulted the book of magic and the answer was .... LG 5 in finally....Truth.
He who laughs last, will be the WINNER, so say a wise.
Never mind the money publiicity (advertising), that moment may give an erroneous impression, counts just like when people will come into contact with the two phones, the real, say that in the end, most of people will buy LG 5, even though in the first instance buy S7, they will realize that or tricked, and in the end will buy a good phone, LG 5.
Bring back the FM radio.
For those who listen to the radio, it makes no sense to buy one of the most expensive smartphones and lose a free and popular way to get the news, listen to music and entertainment stuff.
I vote for LG G5. The other feature battles do not matter while Samsung keep removing the radio from their flagships.
meh.. they say nothing about s7.. they put edge in front line.. there is no g5 edge or someing like that.. so in a battle g5 vs s7.. hmmm that will be fair
Anonymous, 06 Mar 2016an 8% difference is pretty close to 50-50. thats why he said almost58% vs 42% is NOT 8% difference!
It is 16% difference. Double what you said!
Rather the LG G5 than any Samsung had too many problems with Samsung handsets and I'm not the only one in my family to do so. Lg much better than samsung. Even sony is better than any samsung. And I do love the lgg5 it has everything going for it. shame that andriod's software that is the problem and it could be a lot better they need to sort out battery drain when on Wi-Fi it does not matter what handset it drains the battery if they could sort out the power drain with Wi-Fi then it would make the handset's a lot better. Sony Xperia Z5 battery life last 3 days if you don't use Wi-Fi at all just a shame that their camera OS need a lot of work other than that as I said lg sony are much better than any samsung mobile.....
Nishru, 06 Mar 2016Yeah...well, S7 edge might be a better phone (though I will wait with that opinion till consum... moreidk where you are but the S6 Edge plus 64GB is actually more expensive here in US, along with the iPhone 6 Plus, 6S and 6S Plus in their 128GB versions

Nedy71, 06 Mar 2016I do not think so. As this 48 % voted for LG will NOT get it anyway but just voted AGAINST S7 ... moreThis is a popularity poll, if we wanted to pit them against each other in sales we need to wait till we have the pre-order numbers. Obviously some people who voted for the G5 wont be getting it for one reason or another, but just as many people wont be getting the S7.
