xeroxxxxxxxxx, 29 Feb 2016Switching apps is multi tasking . How do you even use multiple apps if you Dont switch ?When you have music playing while using a doc app for example. That's just a really simple example. Another example, if an app wants to process both input from the camera, mic, and user input and put it all together, this is where multi-core comes into play.
gcristian, 29 Feb 2016Agree with that. But deciding to install heatpipes means it's mandatory to avoid throttling, o... moreFirst of all a stock v4 wont put out the same performance as a V8. That is impossible.
Second processors cant be viewed as Car engines. getting a car with a v4 to perform closely to a v8 involves weight reduction of the car mostly (along with mods to the engine). Which would mean the V4 isn't doing as much work as the v8 because the V8 will be pulling much more weight. So you really cant compare the 2 like that
third having heat pipes doesn't mean it is mandatory. Lowering heat = less power consumption. Remember Samsung S7 also Has S820 version too :). I am sure the LG will throttle more.
They could cut cost. But why? They can now brag about being the first phone with vapor chamber heatpipe.

But deciding to install heatpipes means it's mandatory to avoid throttling, otherwise they would cut the costs. Still a v8 engine will burn more gas than a v4 with similar performance. We shall see,until then it's just wild guesses.

Power consumption determines heat output. Samsung S7 also has superior cooling.
LGG5 vs the SGS7 (Not edge version) would be a much more worthy comparison
The greater MP count of the LG gives it a pretty clear advantage in detail in good light. Close ups of details in the cathedral scenes makes this evident. And I should note that **there is no such thing as more detail per pixel** in this comparison. That said, the Samsung's advantage in low-light is also very clear, and the heavy noise-reduction LG's software applies to the images to eliminate the noise is seen in the very smudgy details in the photos of the table with glasses (look 1:1 at the glasses and the chairs) and the overhead of the bar (see 1:1 of the bartender and customers at bar). In the end, for those more interested in the cameras, the benefits of the greater high-ISO performance of the Samsung will outweigh the benefits of greater resolution in good light, especially since there can be no question neither camera's lens can resolve the MP the sensors produce.
you can actually disable the extreme ram management on galaxy s devices in developer options
xeroxxxxxxxxx, 29 Feb 2016Switching apps is multi tasking . How do you even use multiple apps if you Dont switch ?no switching apps fast isn't multi tasking ............. doing multiple tasks at the same time is multi tasking..... for example watching a video on vlc, while you give a download task in background, and video trans-coding at the same time.. whereas, switching tasks is just a process in-between

All does not give them the right to charge more than others.
They should charge less even though it costs them more in time, parts, and effort

If you are going to step in to "show up" someone you should really know what you are talking about

3)G5 has a individual low power backlight for the always on screen that's more efficient than S7/ S7 Edge (0.3% per hour vs 1.3% per hour)
And even after that LG G5 has Quick Charge 3.0 which is way faster than S7/S7 Edge.
I'm an LG fanboy ... But compared with the Samsung S7 edge ... this LG G5 is only a better choise if you can get at least 2 modules extra with the phone for the same price as the Samsung S7 Edge ...

For those who want to choose Samsung s7 it'll be better to choose xiomi mi5 much cheaper and almost identical.
LG g5 is an innovation but it'll be good only battery size is a big concern it should be around 3500mah to compete with s7

Still dudes there is 3 gb ram, there should be 0 lag. When I had my g4 I could reopen alps used like hours ago in a blink. The explanation you give me is not worth much for me, what matters for me is user experience and Samsung is a bit behind. I had enough of that bloat that Samsung calls "features". I still own a T705 tab s 8.4 so I am being impartial here, no reason to be Butthurt. When I pay 700euros or more for a phone I have some expectations, don't really care if it's apple, Samsung, vigo, Asus or whatever no name brand from North pole :)

The problem with the s6 was aggressive ram management that didn't let you have more than 6 apps open at a time. You don't usually need 6 apps open. Usually when you're using several apps you're only immediately switching between 2 or 3, or at most 4.
So it's a minor annoyance at best.
