trinkner, 02 Mar 2016No mention of the fact that the G5 has a replaceable battery? This alone for me separates the... moredude, replaceable battery is already old school. fast charging and fast wireless charging is the future!. can ur g5 take pictures underwater? or can u use ur g5 while talking a bath? i suggest and challenge u try to see what happens.
Elena, 03 Mar 2016Asus selfie is much better than these crap S7 ang G5i see u r using cheap phones....
Why the author of this didn't put pictures in low light with flash on???
I think the g5 takes better pictures with the flash on.
LG g5 is the best phone your money can buy right now.
At least the most complete phone ,all around the best.
AnonD-196292, 01 Mar 2016It compliments the phone, you don't need to get them to enjoy the device overall. so what is the 'modularity' for if u dont buy/get the 'modules'? duh.
S7, 03 Mar 2016S7 is ugly then g5 is beautifulare you kidding me? g5 beautiful? your comment is definitely the other way around.
No comparison really. The S7 edge is much better in every aspect than the weak LG G5. Time to get rid of my obsolete S6.
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2016Fanboy? Lol I am a programmer. I own many devices. So please. Probably you should know what yo... moreYes, I agree with most of what you said. I am not saying that octa will consume much more than quad. I am just saying that they are both on 14nm. Yes exynos is much more dense, I couldn't formulate it this way but I definitely agree. Basic physic tells that P=U*I where P is power measured in Watts, U is tension measured in Volts and I is the current measured in Ampers. I don't say that Exynos is more or less power hungry. My guess is that considering laws of physics and the increased core count exynos will probably draw 15-25% more power. It's a guess and not an absolute truth, feel free to contest my opinion. Can't wait to see the benchmarks ^^
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2016Your bird brain argument is that more cores will make it warmer. I proved to you it is not so.... moreYour argument is invalid. Intel runs on 14nm while AMD on 32. SD and Exynos both run on 14nm. Try to think of 2 light bulbs: one is from 1940 and one from 2015. Which one will use less energy at the same brightness output? This would be the best example for 32 vs 14nm.
No mention of the fact that the G5 has a replaceable battery? This alone for me separates the two phones hugely. I use my phone too often in places where I can't charge it, and require a replaceable battery. This feature should be on the front page of the article in the "things we like" box.

AnonD-166478, 02 Mar 2016Fanboy detected. We will see my friend but i can put my money on SD.Fanboy? Lol I am a programmer. I own many devices. So please. Probably you should know what you are talking about before babbling. Anyone who knows anything about computing knows cores don't determine heat, it is always power consumption. However you seem to have convinced yourself it does. People like us just laugh at people like you who aren't interested in learning anything.
Something you could have said "Samsung's chip might be more dense seeing as it has more cores more dense so it would be harder to cool". But no your brain cant fathom that.
I am sure choosing between the G5 and S7 will be hard for everyone. Seeing as they are both great.
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2016Intel's 12 core cpu uses less power than AMD 8 core -_-Intel is on 14nm while AMD is on 32nm, i dont know if you understand what I mean. Yes AMD uses more because of much older arhitecture, we shall see this year what AMD will bring to the table. Please be informed about what you are talking about and bring convincing arguments, not like cola is better than Pepsi :)
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2016Intel's 12 core cpu uses less power than AMD 8 core -_-True, it does, but that is because Intel has been developing CPUs to be less and less hot for years. This is one of Samsung's first in-house chips, and Touchwiz is more power-consuming than LG's ROM, so it should be a power guzzler.
