Yes, we know we sort of did that already, and the G5 lost. But last time around it was just after announcement, and now that the reviews are out, there’s firmer ground to make an informed opinion. That, and also now it’s the LG G5 versus the non-edge Samsung Galaxy S7.
The smartphones are priced identically, share some of the hardware (particularly if you’re in the States, where the S7 comes with a Snapdragon 820 inside) and are overall two of the best handsets you can buy.
Only they couldn’t be more different. The G5 is the quirky one – you can dismantle it, it has friends, there are two cameras on its back with different FOV – it’s unlike any other.
The Galaxy S7 is the more conservative type – evolutionary design, cold glass on both sides, single lower-res cam (but with large fast-focusing pixels), sizeable battery – it means business.
So which approach do you prefer?
