There is a slight misuse of words in this article. The comparison is great, but these are not "some of the best phones on the market". That should have been "some of the best Android phones on the market". Currently the best phones on the market are iPhones and Windows Phones. (in terms of build quality + OS quality)
Levy, 17 Jan 2016I think a more heterogeneous design would have benefitted tha target audience better For me, the design is unique.. In a good way, besides, I always use protective casing with smartphones, therefore the physical design might as well only be a minor issue. But as I said, I don't have any complaints about its design...

Anonymous, 15 Jan 2016No S Pen test! Why?Because this is a camera comparison. S-Pen test will happen when they have an S-Pen comparison.

I'm using 6p, and I've had it since December 3, for almost 2 months of usage, I can say that the experience is great, so far. No lag, the battery is great, the camera for me is one of its major strengths. Not to mention its default firmware, which is marshmallow, the phone is almost perfect. In terms of screen, its amoled, so, its good maybe not as good as note5, but its close.
The video recording quality is not really good because of its lack of OIS, but its not a deal breaker to me since I have other devices dedicated for video recording. The front facing speaker is loud and I don't see any problems with the audio quality when earphones are being used. The finger print reader is superb, really. The front camera is also excellent, I've been using it a lot for selfies and groupies, hehe. I also like the fact that this phone receives software update first, far before other brands, haha. Overall, nexus 6p I think is a better choice among the 3.
Just take the S Pen out of the Note 5 and see how childishly those other kid run away from it. Yeah, you read it right, one simple plastic pen. Jeez what a stupid comparison!
sadly manufacturer just bet on this uncomfortable monsters and no efforts on mor human < 5 inches with same specs. We don't care ultrathinnes if you can hold well in one hand...
Max Size should be 135 mm x 69 mm x 10 mm 5 inches fullhd and round edges with expandable microsd and at least >3000 mah battery
Just a heads up, the Software for the V10 is the only bottleneck for the Audio
There is a Dac Fix out now, that works well with the "auxillary" cable trick, plugging in a AUX cable puts the audio out into "aux" mode, which offers the FULL power of teh Amp as was as teh beneifit of the Dac, My buddy has an Note 5, it sounds terrible. The V10 is much cleaner an much more powerful, but it needs some major improvements on the software side
but don't be fooled, the CPUs audio output is poor. How ever when your using the HiFi Dac an running in either High or AuX power modes the V10 is cleaner an better defined

Every phone has its own exclusive features. And no , V10's display is not as good as Note 5's . This is a fact and if you think otherwise you are just an LG fanboy or have not compared the displays side by side like GSMArena or me. Removable battery being an advantage is a valid point , I agree to that wholeheartedly , even though the battery life sucks. V10 also has the better camera.
And SD-808 is good for now but is absolutely not future proof. Adreno 418 is beaten in performance by Adreno 420 in SD805 . Especially pairing it with QHD screen is a big mistake.
Also S-Pen has way more functionality and use than a secondary display , it just needs to be used by someone who actually appreciates functionality.
The V10's replaceable battery is really under valued . It takes the note 5 100-120 minutes to charge 100% , but the V10 can go from 0-100% in mere seconds with a battery swap. Carrying a extra battery while on a family vacation or stuck on a lay over while travelling can be a life saver
