Can't see the point of those impressive cpu cores when ios is still so painfully outdated and still crippled by missing so many basic features. It might make the phone's performance seem better (no lag, etc) but at the frankly ridiculous price they are charging it's just not on. Apple' chipset desogners have built the phone equivalent of a 600 horsepower engine and bolted it to the the chassis and running gear of an austin maxi!
I refused to buy the Samsung S7 edge because their prices have gotten equally silly and I was hoping ios 10 would be a real overhaul - a justification for buying a top end phone. Sadly there are still no phones out there that come close to justifying their excessive price tag. A minor bump of the camera specs, an OS older than the hills and a downgrade of materials such as the camera lens glass are just as annoying as the headphone jack issue when we are being quoted a starting price of £700.
This phone is epic FAIL
I think u should put into con section 3 years old same screen .., still bad small battery..
bolsopyd, 21 Sep 2016true i like my g5 camera but its slow to open, focus,saving etc, compared to s7 o iphone 7.
Yep, the G5 is my current phone and I like it a lot, but it's not perfect.
LG could really put some work into speeding up the camera system, part of the problem as well I think is that there is no focus lock in the camera app.
If you tap to focus, it'll reset all to quickly, then it'll re-focus when you hit the capture button, this has caught me out a few times.
I doubt anyone will say the ip7 produces the best pictures overall, but it'll be plenty good enough and faster than all (with the possible exception being the S7 series).

Yours is very strange.
Best software support: IPhone
Best performing phone: IPhone
best PDA is the iPhone ( do you know PDA?)
The you can argue that the iphone doesn't suit you for a reason or another, but you can not force others to think that iPhone is mediocre.
willboyce, 21 Sep 2016this is a obviously the best all round phone on the market and no one can really argue the pointTotally agree with you... I post the same comment as yours, but not yet approved by gsmarena
Year in year out, the best in the biz. Rivals don't get it, because Apple lays down the rules. The only way to compete is to change the rules, which no one is doing yet.
willboyce, 21 Sep 2016this is a obviously the best all round phone on the market and no one can really argue the pointYou never tried a phone with fast charging did you? I will never go back to ancient charging bateries
"no IR port or FM radio"
"No user-replaceable battery"
WHO USES THAT ANYMORE?!?! It's 2016 .. not 2004!!

Yeah, but at what cost??? I bet that a fast 64GB mSD card is cheaper than the difference you payed for the extra memory!
"Customization - of what? UI customization - for children"
....sour grapes...Don't you have your own personality and don't you want to customise your things in your own, unique way???
"Higher display resolution - Can you tell the difference between 720p, 1080p, 2K with your bare eyes? Do you really need to use your phone that close?"
If you can't tell the difference between 720p and 2k than I think you need a medical eye exam...
"stereo video recording - yeap I still wish for this but not that of Android but that of Lumia 1520. Their High Definition sound is so good!!!"
Come on! This is 2016. You can shoot 4k but record mono sound??? And that coming from the most expensive, presumably best phone on the market???
"Fast and wireless charging - I had a 1520 before with wireless charging, never used it at all. I find current charging as acceptable. I never dreamed of super fast charging..."
Again, this is 2016. Other phones are able to wirelessly charge their phones faster than iPhone can using a cable...This really is pathetic from a company that pushes wireless technologies forward (see below)
"and of course.. headphone Jack. - I wished they didn't take this out though... but to innovate means to disrupt... but let's see where is this one is going..."
They got rid of the headphone jack and now you are stuck with a dongle that for 9$ you can imagine what kind of a DAC contains!

I just do not see people who were arguing since long time on GSMarena in the comment section that Apple do not know how to design SoC (chip-set) and they were debating that apple is saving money or robbing the iSheeps by providing them with lower specs.
For those I say, time is the best prove of the truth.
NB, I can see someone saying, fast phone, bad camera, bad battery and bad design. FYI the bad camera, bad design and bad battery iphone 4s lived 5 complete years now and still fully functional and is better than 3 year old or less of the competitors. No more to be said!!
FSW, 21 Sep 2016Performance tests prove that iPhone is the best out there so let the haters hate.So , you can say also that oneplus 3 is better than S7 , Note 7 , G5 , motoZ ... etc just because its performance is better ?

There is one area, an important one at that where it pales in comparison to the iPhone 7 (and Galaxy S7 for that matter) and that is speed.
There is practically no lag whatsoever in the camera's of either the iP7 or S7, where as the G5 isn't quite as quick to capture or write.
This is important for more action oriented photography.

It's ok to me the 20h difference as long as my hand or pocket is safe. and I can get my phone on board the plane. and I cannot expose others to danger...

Wonder whose approach is better: sonys mid-to hi end xcompact or iphone with 4K,ipxx,fingerprint s. for hi price. Well sonys compact was cheaper even in full power. I guess it's about money after all....
