Anonymous, 03 Apr 2016s7 will not lag trust meThe Exynos model yes, the snapdragon model no.
At least if you use your phone normally.

I'm not considering getting any Samsung phone without user removable/replaceable battery!
I very like the wide angle camera of the G5 and usb-c
The sad part for me is the downgrade with UX, metal enclosed design, and a bit ugly back...
Would be awesome to have all the improvements in a G4 body

The Cat, 03 Apr 2016Yeah, flaws like no SD card, lack of waterproofing and poor battery. Wait a second...calm down fanboy ;) I meant same flaws in design like physical home button,protruding camera,headphone jack is in wrong place it should be on top and still using freaking mono speaker,dual sim version of the phone doesn't have dedicated slot for memory card (it uses sim 2 slot)...
other things besides design are : there isn't still any support for hi-res audio,no basic functions like FM radio but there is gimmick liker heart rate sensor....do I need to go further ?
The Samsung Galaxy S7 slayed the LG G5 in all aspects!
I've read in other blogs that the case of the G5 is Plastic that was made to look like Metal just like in other previous G models.
With that being said, I salute the initiative of the modular design, 135-degree Ultra-Wide Angle camera and USB Type-C.
DarkMaster, 03 Apr 2016Which one I would choose ? NONE ! G5 is ugly as fu#k ! and S7 has still same flaws of S6... moreYeah, flaws like no SD card, lack of waterproofing and poor battery. Wait a second...
Which one I would choose ?
G5 is ugly as fu#k ! and S7 has still same flaws of S6...no improvement at all :(
In my opinion, everyone saying that the G5 is better than the S7 should watch Erica Griffin's unboxing video of the G5 and then come back here :D
yeah so gud i like s7 cuz its better than lg and its the best also its a great mark and so it will make great phone haha
yesssssss s7 is real goood but i hav galaxy s2... need new phone hehehe...
Shazzy B, 03 Apr 2016Even the battery life isn't all bad since you can replace it and the fact that the LG G5 has U... moreI'd still prefer not having to replace the battery at all and have great battery life regardless. Also, i don't care that the g5 charges faster as the s7 also charges fast enough. Overall, the g5 is still the cumbersome phone no matter how much you want to sugarcoat it.
In my opinion LG G5 is a very "exaggerating" phone. I think it is cool that LG experiments with new concepts, but this is too much. I dont get why put a second camera on the back, I dont get why put extra attachments in the bottom. For me, it is too much and also it is an ugly phone imo. Samsung on the other hand really brought its A1-game with the decent battery, great camera, glass panel front and back, and water resistance.
Android Modder, 03 Apr 2016to be honest samsung will win by a large margin.not because s7 is great.but because of sammy f... moreEven the battery life isn't all bad since you can replace it and the fact that the LG G5 has USB Type-C, which the S7 lacks. So the G5 can charge and data transfer much more quickly than the S7.
UnKnown-original, 03 Apr 2016Well, after finding out that G5's housing is covered in plastic, I gotta give it to S7. That'... moreIt's painted aluminium, which is covered by a very thin layer of plastic to hide those antenna lines that Apple don't bother to. It is metal, but it's covered by "makeup", I guess.
