GSMArena's comparison and the comparisons on other sites mentioned by the commenter you replied on, those sites proves that G5 has better camera than S7 / S7 Edge and dpreview and dxomark are lying.

I don't know what the policies in other countries are, but in my country of residence (Norway), a built-in battery means that by law the battery is part of the phone, and therefore also covered by the full two-year warranty. If the battery is removable on the other hand, it is defined as an accessory and therefore only covered by a limited, six month warranty. Although a built-in battery has it's disadvantages, I'd rather just carry a power bank and retain my two-year warranty. Doesn't matter that LG has a removable battery when the battery life is that much weaker. I'm going for the Galaxy this year.
My sis bought a S7. Less than a week the S7 crashed. We went to samsung svc centre and all they did was a factory reset. After 2 days, S7 crashed again, gallery folder went blank. What's worst was the supposedly stronger corning gorilla glass 4 cracked badly when my sis accidentally dropped the phone. Less than 2 weeks the flaws if S7 had emerged. I'm currently using a S4 and was thinking of upgrading to a S7. Seems like S7 is worse off than S4. I never had those problems with my S4. I've dropped my S4 couple of times but not a single crack. Think twice before buying a S7.
Lg has brought out the concept of changing modules but this has many disadvantages. The modular touch has added a cheap look to the phone. I have been using this phone for about 2 weeks and it has becone almost impossible for me to carry the phone with all its modules in my pocket. This makes my pocket heavy and is very uncomfortable too. It would have been better if they would have provided all these extra features in their phone as in case of s7
i think these product makers are getting carried away with the concept of modularity..it is true that a modular phones is a dream come true, just like in pc making, but few peopl awail them, they go for pre built pcs and laptops....
imho...an expandable phone should have modules that latch on to it, which could trigger a tiny electromagnetic field sensore(like nfc of course) and link it up. sony had something similar going with its camera modules for xperias but they got it wrong..xperia already had a great sensor, consumer didnt want to buy another, what they wanted was a lens system for optical zoom, preferrably with its own battery...now in lg's case they could implement something simlar to the 4pin contacts seen on nexus 7 tablet for attaching their dock(iphones have 3rd party charging cases..seen them in action, not at all displeased). in this way lg can also implement waterproofing on their phones..
talking about waterproofing...isn't it about time that manufacturers start nano coating their boards and chipsets instead of putting silicon, rubber, wax and whatnot
I have a GS7 edge and had a GS6 before.
In my opinion, the GS6 camera is better.
Today, smartphone cameras relies on processing to much, and when you have more resolution, the processing have more room to work. Second, for me the 16:9 aspec is way better!
Until now is the only complain I have about the GS7 edge. The phone is great.
Sammy Boy, 06 May 2016Hahahahaha... tell you them that the S7 has a better camera ?..hehehehe..a joke of april and ... moreUm....you must have missed it. The s7 has many camera advantages. The g5 was given the edge becausw though the s7 has more proper and advanced processing, sometimes its too much. And colors are usually more accurate on g5.

I always only speak for myself but also I read other people's comments from various websites before including 'most people'. If you do the same you'll see a majority of the comments are in reference to the battery or how people are worried about running out of battery. I saw a comment on here about how someone can't carry a spare, they have no room for a 2"x3"x0.3" battery in their pocket/wallet. Apple and Samsung are leaders because of their software and paper specs which do translate into every day specs unlike some companies not because of their non-removable batteries which is a huge con on their phones - again, read the comments of various reviews before i said that.
Hahahahaha... tell you them that the S7 has a better camera ?..hehehehe..a joke of april and may month...The G5 is KING of smartphone cameras.
Innovation vs refinement...
Hmm, innovation is a double-edged sword when nobody follows your lead. LG needs support, thus they must encourage.
As for Samsung, it's more of redemption than refinement.. i think.

You might think it's useless but every thing has its use. Take the dual edge screen of the galaxy S7 edge/S6 edge/S6 edge+: Unlike the amazing side screen of NOTE edge, the current dual edge screen is absolutely useless to me but some people might really put their smartphone screen down and check the light that flashes when they receive a call or something. The G5 is the most different flagship in the past few years, and that is as closed to innovation as we get

Everyone sells a "BMW" (just naming a mid-to-high tier) but everyone offers different options for that "BMW". SUV, or convertible, or sunroof, or winter tires or, leather interiors what not. If you've noticed, hardware on phones make almost no noticeable difference unlike a Porsche and a Toyota would show in terms of performance.. This is probably closest car analogy that can be applied to smartphone market.
Apple and Samsung are selling the M4 series full option (you could say Samsung bmw apple mercedez or whatever), LG selling the convertible version of the M4... of course the convertible isn't going to sell as much.
No comment in the battery analysis about the fact that the G5 has a user-replaceable battery and the S7 does not? That's a hugely important feature for people who often use their phones away from a power outlet!
Anonymous, 30 Apr 2016So many saying that G5 is better than S7. Maybe it is but all I can see are debates between S7... more.. Poor judgment there...I work with a telco and I can tell you sales figures have never determined the quality of a phone...Smsng might sell more units due to boader market reach and fat marketing budget as compared to LG! ...think of this analogy..If Toyota sell more Corollas that Porsche, does it mean Toyotas are the better cars?...I bet not!
