Anonymous, 26 Mar 2016It has a spare battery and the battery test are similar to s7.why do you want a waterproof?you... more"battery is the same as S7" are you blind?..or just delusional.. It's still behind the G3
Whhhaaaatttt.... An LG with poor battery life....??? It must be a mistake. :-)
In order not to forget the REAL Truth about LG G5!!!
LG G5: MWC 2016 Winner!!! GSMA announces LG G5 for best device at MWC 2016!!!!! (Not S7)
LG G5: Accurate color screen (IPS) from LG. Not Like S7 with Burn-In Issues Amoled Screen... This is a known issue with Samsung S5 - S6 - S7!!!!! Just Google it... Check it!!!!
LG G5: Ir Blaster Still available in LG G5 (Not anymore available in S7 Last Year was in S6...S5...)
LG G5: Fm Radio
LG G5: Removable Battery. Yes LG did it. You can have a full metal unibody mobile phone with Removable Battery. LG G5!!!
LG G5: Usb Type C. Now available in G5 (Not Available in S7, in S8 for sure... Next Year)
LG G5: Fast Charge 3.0 Now available in G5 (Not Available in S7, in S8 for sure... Next Year)
LG G5: Snapdragon 820 with the same price (In all countries, not only in USA and China like S7) In Latin America Snapdragon 652 with a lower price...
LG G5: New Perfect Innovative Modular Design (S7 Design = S6 Design?!?)
LG G5: Dual Camera 16MP & Wide Angle 8MP with LASER Focus (Not Dual... Focus... S7 12MP)
Phone looks really good and the performance seems great...bot the battery life is not so good even if it's removable, never din carry a spare and nor intend to so I prefer a larger battery that lasts all day than removable..the Galaxy s7 edge seems a better proposition even though is a little more expensive, big battery and waterprofing, also the edge screen which not very usefull it brings some nice looks to the phone..wait for the price to drop to more rezonable levels and get that one...personally I have a Nexus 6 which works great and the Nexus 6p should also be considered as is one great device.
Avand Rd, 26 Mar 2016The most interesting flagship, if not the best. It tick all boxes. Removable battery, IR blast... moreIt has a spare battery and the battery test are similar to s7.why do you want a waterproof?you play with rain?and Samsung pay?just use the old style lol.even LG G5 camera better than s7.s7 only have advantage at night because of the yellowish tint that Samsung put but on daylight their suck
"There is good news about the LG G5 performance - it's flagship-grade, capable of handling anything anytime, and it doesn't heat the shell. We ran lots of benchmarks, one after another, and the G5 turned out to be one of the coolest flagships we handled this year. It gets slightly warm, but that's it."
Well done LG!
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.
Why LG? Why did you change the UI?
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
