ljames, 26 Mar 2016Always on display is a gimmick anyway that only promotes laziness. Besides, it's not going to ... moreS7 loses in AOD which it should win easily though.
and i bet, 3rd party module maker could easily made a larger battery module for it.
Whoa! You think there are better cameras out there that capture a lot details, more lights, got faster focus.... you cannot compare them with this wide angle camera. Photos looks no more 2D, you could call it 2.5D since FoV is like that of eyes, looking at these shots it finally feels like you are there in person. I would say that wide 8Mp is best camera in phone available. Shame they do not treat that as main camera, its revolutionary.
AnonD-455364, 26 Mar 2016DESIGN - every person has own mind, for me G5 > S7 but G5 ~ S7 Edge
DISPLAY - maybe yes, i... moreCamera it does have many advantages and controls as well.
And better optimized. That's funny
Hello. Just want to clarify two things:
1. Read the disclaimer (it's everywhere), and don't judge the battery life just yet. When the final unit arrives, we will test it again. There should be a difference.
2. Yes, the battery is detachable. You have to take it out from the original bottom, and slide it on the Camera or the B&O accessory.
AnonD-455364, 26 Mar 2016DESIGN - every person has own mind, for me G5 > S7 but G5 ~ S7 Edge DISPLAY - maybe yes, i... moreIm samsung user. And i love this g5 so much . And your comment is pain in the *** you dont have to bash s7 like that . What do u invented by the way? Nothing!
The most interesting flagship, if not the best. It tick all boxes. Removable battery, IR blaster, USB type-C.
B&O DAC module, Rolling bot are also nice..
So bad about the poor batery life. Luckily its removable and Larger Capacity battery module is coming. I hope it wont make the phone look uglier.
S7 is maybe the best, its the piece of beauty, waterproof and samsung pay is the killer features. If samsung pay is a must try, A series also has that feature. If we need more than one phone, Then G5+A5 is a perfect pair.
AnonD-292864, 26 Mar 2016Galaxy S7 beats LG G5 in design, camera, display, battery life and performance so S7 is better... moreDESIGN - every person has own mind, for me G5 > S7 but G5 ~ S7 Edge
DISPLAY - maybe yes, i love Amoled, but LG has one of best displays ever made
BATTERY - i said already
PERFORMANCE - S7 obvious but Exynos variant only
CAMERA - s7 can`t even come closer, why? G5 has w-a camera, better camera soft, ton of capabilities to control camera while s7`s Pro mode still can`t go higher of 800 ISO and 1/8s shutter and just F 1.9 -> 1.7 means nothing :)
SOFT - touchwiz is really pain in ***, while LG`s OUI is just greatly optimized junk :D
MODULAR DESIGN - S7?
WATER RESISTANT - G5? but are you going to bath with your phone? or does you swim with it? pretty stupid thought but it`s needed feature after all, but not top
so, your S7 is not as cool as you think, because G5 is underrated it does not means it`s bad :D i bet u love iphones while it`s crappiest device ever made to fool people :D good luck
In short the entire android smartphone industry is 1 year behind Samsung.... the multi task score of G5 is that of around s6... and s7 is far far ahead.( MAKES ME REMEMBER THE GALAXY S3).. better luck next time qualcomm.
AnonD-455364, 26 Mar 2016every way? :D S7 beats it only in battery life and performance maybe which it`s still question... moreGalaxy S7 beats LG G5 in design, camera, display, battery life and performance so S7 is better in everyway.
AnonD-455364, 26 Mar 2016every way? :D S7 beats it only in battery life and performance maybe which it`s still question... moreGalaxy S7 has the best camera inside a smartphone. You are just saying LG is better because of higher megapixels. That dual camera is a gimmick.
every way? :D S7 beats it only in battery life and performance maybe which it`s still questionable, cuz last year V10 had better optimization in app caching in ram then s6e+ had...
and camera :D s7 camera is crap compared to even s6 (you can see review), just selfie cam and focus speed is increased... so how can you say G5 is lower then s7?
you guys just like Apple cuz it`s apple and Samsung cuz its sammy u know? and underrated phones like G5 which has true potential is lost, very sad
Hate to say, but this is inferior to the s7 in every way. Only thing that sticks out is removable battery. Otherwise there is no reason to buy this over the s7
I am disappointed with no multi window currently but I believe that it will come up in Android N update.
cro, 26 Mar 2016garbage battery life for the G5 lowers my confidence in the One 10's battery life...If only you could top it in 30 seconds .... oh wait you CAN.
How much does your Samsung take to top up. 60 minutes? 90 minutes? Do you take a nap while waiting? Good luck with your shiny tin can.
Swappable battery >>>>>>>>> ALL battery lives...
I actually preordered the S7 edge with the local carrier but still havent got my phone. After seeing this review looks like I'm inclined to get the G5 instead. Even if the S7 camera is better in some regards I love taking wide angle shots using my dslrs and this would be a good phone for those times I dont have my dslr around.
People complain a lot about battery life but I think this should be fine, my G3 lasts a full day with lots of COC so I think the G5 would be similar. Too bad the wireless charging is gone.
A very great product , but left some things to be desired ,battery life is really poor as old flagship models like g3 and g4. Display is great with 1880 contrast ratio but brightness is really poor,it should have been at least 400 nit.
Otherwise it's a superb phone
Great phone just wish it has multi window in retail units I will miss that feature😞
AnonD-111717, 26 Mar 2016LG G5's Always On Display blows S7/Edge's Always On Display out of the water. really surprise... moreAlways on display is a gimmick anyway that only promotes laziness. Besides, it's not going to matter how much less draining the feature is on the g5 when the difference in battery life is virtually 25%. Bottom line is the g5 loses to the s7 where it counts.
