I said that the cam features are a lot than those in the S7 and the G5 captures photos with Natural colors, also have 16:9 cam with higher Megapixel (16/8 cams vs 12/5mp cams)
but I totally agree that the G5's back is totally rubbish and has the worst appealing back design I've ever seen between LG's smartphones,
thus, that's makes picking anyone of the two confusing, but If you don't focus alot on the camera then the S7 is the phone to buy with its superior battery, coolest screen, premium design with cool 3d-thermo processed cover
Actualy people buy premium gadget, for many reason, don't bother arguing which one better. The fact, Samsung and Iphone are the leader on smartphone market. Marketing strategy (knowing what many people need) and customer/product support are the key they become big.
[deleted post]Yep and man is that lg uuuugleeeeee.
Backs like a big boil or an old syle tv backs av ports urgh.

#2 marketing is extremely powerful. Don't underestimate the power of marketing.
#3 if you compare S7 to G5, I would take G5. S7 doesn't excite me. If you want to spend tons of money for the S7 edge then go for it lol. G5 has more to offer. I guess that's why the G5 won in Barcelona and S7 did not.

The back looks a cross between big boils and the rear of an old tv with its jack plugs, and as for the front most flagships now let alone that s7 have an incomparably better front.
The phone is probable fine as an upgrade for diehard lg fans who won't buy outside anyway, its clearly an lg model.
There is no contest. Only real advantage that G5 has over S7 Edge is that potential which comes with modular design (but knowing LG, it will stay just that - potential, gimmick). Essentially everything is better on S7:
* IP68 certified
* similar dimensions, yet bigger display
* better low light performance camera
* superior dual-pixel focusing
* MUCH better battery (this ALONE is good enough reason to ditch G5) - 3600 vs 2800, simply no contest.
* Exynos/Mali-T880 variant
Also, it looks 10 times better than G5, only a blind man can say otherwise :)
For those saying GSMArena is "defending/favorising" Samsung - accept the simple truth - S7 Edge IS better device, and sales figures will confirm this. iPhone 6S/Plus and S7/S7 Edge SIMPLY ARE the best devices on the market, and no niche/gimmicky products (like G5) will change that. And stop talking about "marketing" being reason for good sales numbers - it's NOT about aggressive marketing - you can't fool people to buy 800 dollar device, just because of marketing - people do know what they are paying for.
Rotten Apple, 26 Feb 2016Guys don't be silly to choose either of these. Chinese new comers are having same features and... moreIn with you chinese manufacturers are growing so fast and making a lot of innovations, in many years they will become the best of smartphones.
The G5 shots are really bad, they look like paintings, bad processing and low lens quality (especially the 8 Megapixels). The 16:9 ratio is nicer than the 4:3 one but they should really go for a 3:2 photographic ratio as well...
Interesting to see that you still have the risk to end up with a bad camera even in 2016 with big manufacturer names. One would think they should all be capable of, more or less, putting together a good camera performer but that's not the case.
Anyway, the Galaxy line seems to be fairly constant and consistent in terms of image quality with each iteration, which is a good thing, at least you now you will have a good camera with the new model.
Low light performance is not so good, especially on the G5, if you compare that to the night shots of the Meizu MX5 for example... But overall, it is a win for the S7 and a proof that resolution is not everything, again.
Promhize, 27 Feb 2016I don't get it, an extra camera for wider pictures? Isn't that what panorama is meant for? No they are different.
One important thing they forgot to mention about PROS for the LG G5 is that it uses USB-Type C that seems like a huge advantage to me.
Grey1213, 26 Feb 2016You seem to be misunderstanding a lot of things.
The camera did more than just low light, a... moreU have forgotten the main points that I talked about..
4:3 ratio is horrible, and every body agrees with that, I abandoned the 13mp option in my s4 and stick with the 9.6mp cuz of the 4:3
So nothing will change when I'm getting the S7 -__-
moving on there is the yellow cast that is clearly seen in every photo in the test, even in low low light the G5 colours where consistent unlike the S7
The selfie camera isn't really changed from the S6, also not in the level of the G5's cam ,
not to mention the cool extra wide cam in the G5
even if every thing else is goof but A flagship phone SHOULD BE BETTER THAN that

Akxn, 27 Feb 2016I don't know why people like the artificial colours of Samsung devices. Camera will be produci... moreYeah ive used ago those and ornery brands. Including lg, htc, nokia, apple....so on. Samsung didn't lag a lot more and the others even apple are anything but lag free. Nice try though.
And the camera being really artificial in colors now? Lmao.
Try letting go if the bhurt
I don't know why people like the artificial colours of Samsung devices. Camera will be producing artificial colours front camera is awful but they have beautiful design good battery with s7 edge water resistant.
And I know and I would say everybody knows that after only very few updates Samsung TouchWiz gonna lag.
Now I've note 5 and this is the last from Samsung I'm not gonna buy any phone from Samsung. Hands down we mostly use UI rather than camera or any other thing. It's really bad
When it comes to LG I haven't used many phones
But the Optimus g it was good unfortunately I had dropped and screen was broken and my friend had LG g2 and according to him it was good.
I used g4 a bit it was nice battery was a bit below par. I've used enough Samsung devices if I gonna choose in between them I'll be choosing LG G5.
Gary5, 27 Feb 2016Read carefully and try to understand what I am saying. The point you are missing here is Note ... moreActually the Note edge was a note 4. So yeag the Note 4 does have it. And Amoled has always been flexible. It's a new form factor where the screen is actually using that advantage finally. It's a new glass and form factor. Not a new screen tech
Brian sohai, 27 Feb 2016Android update is also a very important determinant factor to keep your phone refreshed as new... moreActually overall all the past 4 years Samsung has been better. The 2012 s3 was updated before most 2013 devices. The past year a couple moved a little ahead
