[deleted post]So now it's a paid review because the phone using the more advanced technology came out further ahead????
How do some of you even get through daily life with such logic?
In fact some things even vary in favor of this review towards LG that have been clearly lacking in personal experience and other reviews.
Like dynamic range and exposure. And most defiantly microphone quality. And the muffled speaker.
But GSM also classics the S5 is louder than the S6 anyone who has texted them or watched a comparison clearly knows it's not true.
Don, 22 Jun 2015Really - why then is Samsung seeking to engage with Blackberry to introduce their suite of sec... moreSo looking to further improve it means it's terrible?
Wow.... Sorry for your lack of logic
NavyAssassin, 21 Jun 2015S6>M9>G4>Z4 this is the true oneSorry. Objectively it's S6>Z4>G4>M9
Xadd, 21 Jun 2015No dude Z2 can't compete in camera even thr iphone6 has better camera overall quality than z2.... moreSo you definitely have no clue. Z2 has a great camera with only OK image processing from sony. Manual controls and other camera apps are a different story. Even auto mode is obviously better than you choose to believe
Xadd, 21 Jun 2015The other way around dude
Practical phone is the G4
Ex... moreRemovable battery and SD slot with usually better night shots is about it for the G4.
And just because since bias reviews claim it has better battery life doesn't make it true.
LG, 19 Jun 2015You can't call soft corners an issue since this is something that is caused by having wide len... moreYes I can. I know how wide aperture lenses work, I have an SLR camera and a f1.8 lens, but just look at the LG corners, maybe if the corners matched I would forgive it, but in this case the bottom left is like a sore thumb. LG could have done better. In saying all this though, strictly speaking, you shouldn't be taking landscapes with a wide aperture lens...
Xadd, 21 Jun 2015This comparison is almost a TIE But in real life G4 has better battery life.How is the S6 coming out ahead and having better battery life mean that it is a tie and G4 has better battery life??????
SayMobile, 21 Jun 2015I want to see the Iphone6 VS the galaxy S6 "Battle of the Sixes" comparison. Please... moreOK. The S6 does most tasks faster, has a much better display, better cameras in most cases, much better audio output, more security/theming/flexibility/and productivity.
The iPhone appeals to less informed people.
There is the comparison
Saurav Ghosh, 22 Jun 2015You wrote too much irrelevant things, waste of time really! How hard is it to be on point?
... moreI am not surprised at the fact that we have to deal with fools like you quite often on the internet. Every sentence in your post is like a writer taking a shot at describing "irony" without mentioning the word itself.
"The problem is the lack of your knowledge about the word fanboy" - So now we have special certifications and post-graduate programs that enlighten us on what the term "fanboy" really means and how knowledgeable you have to be before you use it? You're just putting up your sentences randomly in a failed attempt to ridicule me. Well, as I mentioned - failed attempt.
By the way, first 5 lines of your comment were really "not" to the point and rather a case of beating about the bush.
Now read this carefully and dare I say, comment on it as a sane person would and not as a "fanboy".
Samsung S6 has got a better screen under direct sun. Under normal circumstances they both seem pretty shoulder to shoulder. Mind you G4 is the only latest smartphone with pixel density close to S6. All others are still rolling in the mud at around 400 to 450ppi. You can't take away that point from G4. When I decide my phone based on how bright my screen is, the "direct under the sun performance" might factor in but it won't become my deciding point.
Here's another take on screen and display. What if I am a person who prefers bigger screen and I like G4's 5.5-inch screen more, which is the case with me? Is there something wrong with it? Do I not have the autonomy to choose my phone based on my preference of a bigger screen size?
Under the screen performance of S6 gets cancelled with bigger screen size on G4. I am not saying that S6 lost here. My point is that for me and many like me the point of decision might be bigger screen size but at the same time for many more PPI might be the thing to get.
S6 has 8 cores, G4 has 6 cores. There is a difference for sure but how many times does this difference play a role in day to day use? You can't discredit S6 for more cores and better processor but you can't ignore the fact that day to day use on both processors would be nearly the same. I am pretty sure more than half of the people who use these phones won't even know when and how many cores are being used on the processor at any given moment. But still, point goes to S6 for having a better processor.
Battery - go through the comment section and you will notice what I noticed. It is really surprising for many including me that GSM is the only reviewer to say that S6 has a better battery than G4. Almost all the reviewers on Youtube and every person who has used both the phones has called G4 the winner when it comes to battery performance and of course capacity. You can't say that those reviewers are paid to review because of course, Samsung can always pay them more since Samsung is a bigger company. So let's find comfort and truth in what "most" reviewers have to say about batteries on both the phones.
However, are we forgetting that G4 has a removal battery? Won't you count that as a plus point? Samsung used to do that and Samsung users would present that as an "up point" when comparing against iPhones. How can you not give this point to G4?
RAM - both have 3GB of RAM. None is better.
Memory - S6's is fixed and of course you pay more to get more. G4 has 32GB internal and allows an SD card of up to 2TB of capacity. There price difference on both the phones is easily 5 to 10 thousand (rupees) in Pakistan and by spending only 2 thousand to 3 thousand more I will have more memory on G4. But yeah, for me 32GB is enough too.
As for shapes, that's the purest case of taste and choice.
It has been proven time and again the G4 has the best camera among all the latest smartphones in 2015. They both do compete head to head but then comes G4's manual mode that easily beats S6 any day. Front camera on G4 is 8mp versus 5mp on S6.
S6 has a better processor - G4 would match that on day to day use but hardcore users should definitely prefer S6.
S6 has a better screen - G4 has a bigger screen (when not under the sun the difference is nearly unnoticeable)
G4 has a better battery and it is removable too - S6 has a great battery too when compared to other phones from other manufacturers.
G4 has a better camera - S6's camera can compete with G4's camera and both will outdo each other here and there but G4's manual mode and shooting in RAW format is definitely a plus for camera lovers.
G4 has 3GB of RAM - S6 has 3GB of RAM.
With this comparison I don't see S6 smoking G4 at any point - literally at any point.
If you think taste and choice don't matter in this case (bigger screen vs brighter screen, fixed memory vs external memory, fixed battery vs removable battery) then believe me, with all that knowledge that I "don't" have according to you with regards to the term "fanboy", I would say you are more fanboy than any fanboy I have ever seen.
Best camera phones ever had in 2015
1) LG G4
3) Iphone 6
4) HTC M9

Anonymous, 22 Jun 2015The software is great. Especially now. And was never even close to as bad as people say. Espec... moreReally - why then is Samsung seeking to engage with Blackberry to introduce their suite of security systems to manage KNOX, which has never worked properly. If Android is so good why is it that 1 in 4 apps (news this morning) from the Google Play Store data mining users, from simple flashlight apps to games to so called antivirus. Google has been bloody slack and plain lazy with their security and it shows. All Android users are at risk of having someone blackmail them.
Don, 22 Jun 2015Actually I got that information from this website in relation to the Chinese market. Samsung ... moreThe software is great. Especially now. And was never even close to as bad as people say. Especially now.
And sorry but Samsung Knox is one of the most secure
Don, 22 Jun 2015Actually I got that information from this website in relation to the Chinese market. Samsung ... moreYes, Android is not secured, that's a FACT. If someone gives me a secured OS (like BB) with all the apps I need from Android, then I won't even think for a second to switch.
Saurav Ghosh, 21 Jun 2015I hated Android, in fact maybe more than you, but at this moment its the most practical OS out... moreActually I got that information from this website in relation to the Chinese market. Samsung are an excellent hardware maker, if not the best. It is the software that is the problem. It is bloated and not secure. In an idea world Samsung should make Blackberry devices. Why incorporate the excellent Blackberry product into Android to shore up crappy Android, when Samsung should just buy Blackberry and make full Blackberry devices - they would sell like hot cakes.
You are right, 21 Jun 2015We have known from past experiences that samsung phones can be used for carving roads and path... moreYou wrote too much irrelevant things, waste of time really! How hard is it to be on point?
And it's laughable how you 'loads' try to put your own words in others' mouth, childish effort, but you must be proud.
I don't get paid for my comments, that's the funny part. No sane person would ever think that Samsung is the only "good" company out there. The problem is the lack of your knowledge about the word "fanboy".
Yes, there should be always a matter of personal preference and taste and all that, (don't know why it has to mentioned) but here, when we are talking about this comparison there can't be any personal preference. After reading this comparison review if EVEN one person goes for the G4 over the S6 then he/ she is a Samsung hater (just like all the cheap and low IQ persons are) but nothing else.
Personal preference, taste etc. only comes when you are undecided to buy a product which has a rival at lesser price, or better product in slightly higher price. Here there is no comparison. G4, which IS a midrange phone, was compared to a proper flagship device (S6 in this case), and its not limited to S6 either, Z4, M9, those are same, actual flagships, not midrange cum flagship at insane price point.
So rather than asking me what's wrong, stand in front of a mirror, and ask yourself?
ithehappy, 19 Jun 2015Build material is subjective, yes, but not technical results. And, yes, I prefer plastic too. ... moreWe have known from past experiences that samsung phones can be used for carving roads and paths in the mountains. Such strong and solid phones no? And since samsung phones are known for being invincible, no samsung users EVER use any phone cases or glass protectors. You are so right. And i must say you are practical with your thinking when you suggest that samsung should be the only company in the world whose smartphones should be used. Choice, preference and taste should never matter.
You my friend are brainwashed. You live in a world where people of different tastes and choices live.
You sound more like a fanboy or an online marketer who gets paid to malign one company to exalt the other. I personally own an lg g2 but suggested s4 and helped my friend buy one based on his taste and preferences. We are both happy. What are you so angry about?
It is not as if you are talking about a godly company that never made a mistake. Samsung had and still has its ups and downs and hiccups.
I saw a famous youtube reviewer say that he returned his s6 because of the lags. It does not stop me from saying that s6 is a great phone.
What is wrong with you?
