Anonymous, 19 Jun 2015I stopped reading when you finally mentioned "u sent back the s6 blah blah "...dude ... morewhen the phone looks uglier at the apperance, of course most of the people will not keep it ...even the G2 looks better..
jamborie, 19 Jun 2015GS6 smokes lg g4, g4 is a mid-range phone for God's sake, compare it with galaxy alpha or so.As soon as I read the last paragraph, I realised its written by an "I" pratt, I mean what on earth does, double down,mean. It sounds like something from an "I" conference when, lets say some sly politician brained director thought it shrewd, not to say double up, incase people picked up that the current state of product was 50% worse than it could be. Then of course the statement that the s6 doesn't cater for power users, WHAT ? This sounds like an "I" edition review crafted to turn people away from their biggest rival samsung to give sales to an also ran, whose sales are no threat to them, being percieved as the biggest selling , most popular is what sells "I's" and we don't want samo to burst that bubble now..do we.
i have an idea for gsmarena, summarize the winners of each category in the wnd, like copy paste the "winner: tie ....." part in the final page, like you do in normal phones!
Both phones succumb to the nuanced push to produce palatable video and pic quality, and both do it a smidgen better than their forebears.
Hey MHL is supported .
It lists s6 as a compatible product
Next time compare s6 with z3+... only these 2 r awesome in market now
jamborie, 19 Jun 2015GS6 smokes lg g4, g4 is a mid-range phone for God's sake, compare it with galaxy alpha or so.LOL exactly. Apples and Oranges all over again!
I hated Samsung up until the release of the S6 but the S6 was such a revolution that it convinced me to buy one!
And I really liked the G4 when I was making decisions but you know what... maybe the only thing that the G4 does better is the camera (just maybe... and I would really miss the shutter speed feauture that I was accustomed?! To with my previous Nokia phone, I really do) but in every other aspect the S6 tops the G4 sometimes by miles...
display... S6 speaks for itself
inside the box fast charge brick is over the top! It blew my mind (i know the G4 supports it too but S6 has it inside the box)
I also got a wireless charging pad for free where i bought my phone so that's a plus too
the batteru is certainly better (especially for videos and browsing)
Fingerprint sensor is very good... nearly is fast as iphone's.
the UI has become a looot better
There is the problem of ram though which isn't really annoying... but it's there
so yeah S6 rules, G4... yeah a worthy competitor but always in the second place
GS6 smokes lg g4, g4 is a mid-range phone for God's sake, compare it with galaxy alpha or so.
you got it wrong m8.
Page2 - G4 is the winner with removable battery and expandable storage. ;_;
G4 is more gimmicky while the S6 is more practical, refined and better over all.
1. LG 4 front look really ugly.. I mean high price.. and the look and feel like 100 eur device. At first sight from front it look like cheap device. Specialy compared whit S6. Way better S6. and 2. The back. LG4 leather? What they want to tick? Took LG4 brown leather in the hand.. and the back whit "leather" feels like slippery plastic.. when u touch u dont feel this premium and u asking yourself is this real leather? or its only world the phrase. Even Htc M8 feels x2 premium when u take in hand. Even by look when u take it M8 u can can be sure its Metalic. ok. Aloy. Even when u take S6 in the hand, u can fell its glass. U take z3 and u feel its glass. Take LG g2 u can fell its plastic . But LG 4 dont make its feel beeing premium. Dont know how about black LG 4 "leather" version... but. Whit this premium price range better choose other brand. To get premium device. HTC. Sony. Samsung S6. Even Iphone 6.
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2015You could buy both phones and do the real test yourself, and tell us the answer, thanks.I would argue that I've already done that and offered my findings.
But consider this, if this individual were to do as you suggest, which is to purchase both devices do 'the test' as you say and then reveal his results, would you accept those results if they didn't favour your prefered device?
Or would you just call this person a 'hater' or 'troll' or some other such ridiculous childish term!
fab, 19 Jun 2015this is so subjective. since when is glass/metal a statement for quality? it's much more fragi... moreBuild material is subjective, yes, but not technical results. And, yes, I prefer plastic too. But there are metal phones which are durable than plastic phones, like HTC's M series. Also you don't know whether S6 is fragile or not, just because some Sony Z series phone was fragile doesn't mean S6 is fragile too! At the same time, plastic can't generalise a phone's durability. Nokia Lumia use plastic, but they are extremely durable, but LG phones, I won't comment on that, I have always said they should get some reward for consistently making fragile phones, I mean my word they are consistent. Nexus 5 still being the king of fragile phones.
This is not subjective. More or less every sane person knew what would going to happen in this comparison review, after all these, still those cheap LG fanboys are going to buy a G4 and that's not the problem, they will go and say G4 is better than S6. Seriously, LG Corporation should start recruiting some psychiatrists too, cause their buyers need their attention very urgently.
