QHD is the culprit but thank LG for allowing G5 to sport a removable battery compartment. They should carry out an optimization or a fix quick
Absolutely loved the G3, only let down by mediocre battery, same thing with the G4 and G5. I don't care about removable batteries. I'd much rather have one that lasts up to 2 days like it does on my current phone, the Meizu Pro 5 - 48 hours between charges and only $425 US dollars in January, less now. Check out GSMArena's battery life page.

SAmoled is better. Its also the most accurate, and the most efficient.Its obvious nobody can have a reasonable discussion with you if you refuse to accept that.

The minority of people care about the trivial advantages of S7 like water resistance. Most people use their phones without the need for water resistance. However, don't forget the power of marketing, where Samsung is the top. Marketing can persuade most people about anything. And Samsung fanboys act like Apples. They keep ingoring or diminishing the facts, the disadvantages of their beloved S7, they think it's better than everything despite it's just a marketing hype. And if Samsung goes on another way, the fanboy will also change their mind accordingly what Samsung want them to believe.
Unlike them, I have written the objective facts. I admitted the advantages of S7 and the flaws of G5 and the reverse, I have even reasoned it and drew the conclusion. Something that Samsung fanboys are not capable of.

There are too many Samsung fanboys here who can't admit that LG G5 has a lot of advantages over S7.
1. IPS LCD is the best display. The advantages of LCD outweigh the advantages of Amoled. The advantages of AMLOED are trivial compared to the advantages of LCD. Amoled screens have many problems. For example: non-RGB subpixels, burn-in issues (this is the biggest problem), mura effect, limited lifespan, oversaturated colors, colors and brightness is going to degrade by time, ...
AMOLED screens are the worst in the industry. The AMOLED screen and non-removable battery are the biggest disadvantages of Samsung phones. However, Samusng is strong at marketing and brainwashing people like you (Samsung is like Apple), so they can convince people that the worse is better.
2. When it's about design, it's quite obvious that the LG G5's design is way better than Galaxy S7. Metal is more durable than glass. It's shame for you arguing with a subjective article.
3. Who cares about water resistance? Very few people make use of water resistance. Most peple don't care about it. It's just a marketing hype (like AMOLED, and everything about S7).
5. The difference between S7 and G5's camera is trivial, in favor of S7. But last year, the difference between S6 and G4 camera was more prominent, G4 is better. But it doesn't matter, because Samsung and LG are still ahead of the competition in term of camera.
6. And of course, the battery design of S7/S7 Edge is horrible. It's non-removalbe, which meany S7 / S7 Edge are just disposable phones with limited lifespan. They are going to become a paperweight, junk after a few years of usage. It's because the batteries have limited lifespan and they won't hold a charge. But in G5, you can replace the old batter, and continue to use the phone. Moreover, you can replace the battery to a higher capacity one to get much longer battery life than any S7 owner can dream about.
7. Now start and run a CPU/GPU intensive game like a PSP emulation. The Snapdragon wipes the floor with Exynos. And compare S7 to G5.
Anonymous, 27 Mar 2016Again you are doing it. That's cute.It's you who are doing it. Again.
Damn, only 60 hours?, waiting for updated review.

What a shame lg, i guess no phone is perfect this time.

I'm guessing your not gonna reply to this one.
Why is "No water proofing" a major disadvantage? The phone is modular and you expect LG to make it water proof or guarantee its water proof? Many consumers are able to use their phones for years without water damage.

When i pay as much for a "phone" as for a whole fricking computer then i want the best of the best. And a maeger 14fps onscreen performance just don't cut it.
As for your comment about removable batteries. Eventually you HAVE to replace it! So it's not about "some people need it". But you, rich bitches, can probably afford to throw away your expensive phone every year, huh.
