I think it's sad that they make the average joe think that the G4 can replace an SLR, or at least that is the impression you have when reading those articles and watching the videos. I have access to a G4 and will compare directly the results to my SLR (450D, yes, 12MP, and 85mm f1.8 lens), body + lens combo cheaper than the G4, never mind the silly $2000-4000 tag of that pro grade SLR body and lens. Having seen the G4 samples and knowing exactly what my SLR system can do, I can tell you already that base ISO shots on the SLR are cleaner, even more so when you start pushing the ISO; and the bokeh quality from the 85mm f1.8 will demolish the G4 as will corner resolution as will depth of field. Don't get me wrong. The G4 has an awesome camera for a phone and I will get one. But will it replace my 450D, most certainly not!
What a great comparison. I read the whole thing. Detailed but very readable. Of course, I'm still on the fence about which one to get. At least it sounds like there's no wrong choice. Many thanks-- excellent job.

Jeez you guys!
Anonymous, 23 Jun 2015So know because I know facts and you are in denial makes me the fanboy? Well.... That's logicalNo you don't know facts. It's a fact that the G4 takes better pics than the S6. Gsmarena is the only site I've seen that says that the S6 takes better pics than the G4.
[deleted post]Sorry. The S4 was objectively better in most ways. G2 was a little better in some battery parts and a bit in low light photos.

And nope, G2 wasn't just popular because of the heck of it. There was reason behind it. However, your incessant 'worship' of Samsung clearly undermines your coherence of thought. Ironically, it makes you a 'dumb fanboy' contrary to your assumption (conclusion).
And once again, no, S4 wasn't about bad software but slightly underperforming SoC against the much newer and better S801. The camera though was equally matched in certain areas.
Well, seems like your reasoning was way worse than 'midrange'.
One more thing to mention: If you buy an LG G4 phone, be cool, it doesn't explode!... :D
Nice design Samsung but its LG's 3 years old design... 3 years ago I was using LG Nexus4: both sides gorilla glass design (but no bulged camera :-) ) Now I am using LG G4, which is better phone and more elegant phone... "Better camera" (except your site everyone says it), better screen, best designed phone ever...

And there are actually a decent selection of some horrifically bias reviews.
I saw one review comparing the S6 to the G4 and it was more bias than an apple review towards the G4
AnonD-409053, 22 Jun 2015LG made a foolish mistake by making LG G4 so huge by size ...this is a kiddish behaviour...lg ... moreTheir screen and camera was good new tech.
Though you are right about how huge they made it. And actually the G3 was no better because it grew in height and width whine also retaining the 3000mah battery.
All LG had to do was increase the battery to at least 3400 which is easy for how huge and thick the device is.
Make the display a lot brighter and add the color profile modes in display settings like the enabled in the G Flex 2.
Use DDR4 Ram and gg4.
Right off the bat the G4 would have been a lot better.
And a mediatek may have helped too.
Both devices are equally bad.
The S6 has terrible battery life in real world use, and only does well on precise tests with one thing running. The cpu is an absolute energy hog under load. It has an inconsistently tinted screen due to poor manufacturing standards, no sd card slot despite android M adding major sd features, it's too thin and overpriced. It is just a form over function device and I returned mine after one week of ownership.
The LG G4 on the other hand is slightly more practical device with a nicer LCD screen that is bigger, an sd slot, FM radio, removable battery and better cameras. But it comes up short due to poor battery life and a horrible underpowered chipset. It is still superior to the S6 though, however i won't buy it.

When trolls can't go by logic (which they never do anyway) then they go to YouTube and spent hours and hours to find a video which will say G4 is better than S6, ROFL. The persons who do that kind of video is another troll anyway.
Basically trolls everywhere. No way Aliens are going to come to destroy this world, cause they know they don't have to. Cause better version of Aliens already are here, existing for very long.
