44 Comments on Samsung Galaxy S7 vs LG G5 – Hands On Impressions!

  1. I'm gonna buy a new phone very soon, but I haven't decided yet about which phone I should get. The Samsung Galaxy S7 or the LG G5 ? and what about the LG V10 ? I see and hear a lot of positive reactions about that phone too.

  2. Things I wish the S7 had:
    -Removable Battery
    -Metal Back
    -IR Blaster
    -Glove Mode
    -Force Touch
    -S Pen Compatibility
    -Better Front Facing Camera
    -The G5's Modularity
    -Better User Serviceability
    -Better Speaker
    -And Front Facing Speakers

  3. android devs are so stupid for making new versions worst than older ones, i reflashed my phone to 4.4.2 kitkat on black background and i don't buy a new phone untill android will make it black or give an option to choose colors

  4. They are both amazing phones… Great stuff… Nevertheless.. Loving the G5.. Huge LG fan… I do however want to know the name of the song in the background too.. :-)

  5. Now saying that one phone sucks would be stupid as they are both very great phones. But ive always loved LG phones and the G5 is amazing.

    And i really dont want to hate but the s7 honestly looks like the original LG optimus G.

  6. I'm totally for the S7. LG really tried, and I commend them for that, but they died. The G5 just has mostly camera and charging stuff – the wide angle camera, all the 'friends' except the DAC (which isn't even worth it), the modular battery, and the USB type C. I don't even care about the camera, personally I don't take pictures often, and the charging is still worse than the S7's. The S7 is just all around better – the AMOLED display, waterproofing, ergonomics (the curves), a GODDAM BOTTOM MICROPHONE JACK, better buttons, and higher pixel density. Even then the camera of the S7 has a better autofocus, better stabilization, and better f rating, even though I think the G5 has a much better camera system, and the S7 has wireless charging for charging, which I think makes the S7 charging better. The only other pros for the G5 is maybe the streamlined OS, if you think it's better, and the fact that the coating makes it more grippy. But then again the grippiness can be combated by a case.

  7. my friends have had both s6 and now s7 and have had non stop problems with them especially with the battery's and program freezing and start stop and auto call and camera problems. I've been and lg fan sense the g3 and use the g4 and still problem free from both. i gave my g3 to someone and they still use it with no issues. lg always ahead of the game.

  8. I love the removal battery on the LG that's cool but I love the look of the s7. I think 5.1 is about as big as I want for a screen. Glad I'm not in the market for a new phone yet!

  9. a modular phone like the LG G5 gives it more issues to fail at those points. yes modularity is nice but on a device that gets a larger amount of abuse they need to have less moving or locking parts.

  10. All I get from these comments is that people don't like the look of the LG G5. And if you put a case on a phone (which most people do anyway), aesthetics mean nothing. What you need to do is look at the specs of each phone, get each in your hand, and do a side-by-side comparison based off the features you want, because both phones are identical specs-wise besides features. For example: Samsung includes AMOLED display and water-resistance where LG includes IPS LCD and is faster in speed tests. Don't choose something based off what someone's opinion is — go off the facts and choose what is best for you.

  11. I give LG props for going the extra mile on the all new designed language but I'm not really sold on it.
    There making a really big fuss over the "removabel modular battery" and while it sounds cool on paper it just looks out of place in flagship devices these days. I would rather have a larger more usefull power pack instead of a smaller one where I'm almost forced to remove it and replace just so I can get a full day of moderate usage on the device, and with an always on 5.3 inch QHD LCD display that battery will be plummeting faster than I can watch it drop. A smartphone should be modular, not no kinda sorta is somewhat modular… just fully modular like the Ara. in the end the g5 looks as if it's trying to hard and why I'm much more at home with the Galaxy s7.
