LG G5 vs Samsung Galaxy S7: Camera, Specs, Prices & More Details


Flagship smartphones from several manufacturers have been battling it out to prove which handset trumps the rest. Apparently, this has been the case ever since mobile devices took over the world by storm.  Particularly because consumers are ready to shell out a hefty sum of money to get what’s best. LG and Samsung, both gigantic smartphone manufacturers hailing from South Korea, have been at war with its two flagship handsets. This time, it’s the Galaxy S7 against the G5.

Performance-wise, the Samsung Galaxy S7 isn’t that different compared to the LG G5. Both are outfitted with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset and 4GB of RAM, which is the top of the line in today’s standards. It’s also important to note that both flagship smartphones come with different variants. Samsung ships its own with its homegrown Exynos 8890 chipset, but LG will also offer the G5 with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652. The latter will be branded as the “lite” variant.

As far as the camera goes, LG’s offering is equipped with a unique dual-camera setup. It comes with a 16MP and an 8MP sensors at the back, and there’s a lone 8MP shooter taking care of the selfies and video calls. On the other hand, the Galaxy S6 features a 12MP primary camera as well as a 5MP front-facing shooter.

For longevity, Samsung equipped the Galaxy S7 with a 3000 mAh battery, which should give it a bigger boost compared to last year’s flagship. Meanwhile, LG is offering the G5 with a slightly lower 2800 mAh battery. Samsung has its ultra power saving mode, but you can take out the battery of the LG G5.

As far as the pricing goes for both handsets, the LG G5 comes with a launch price of $818 (US$629). On the other hand, Samsung is offering its flagship smartphone with a price of $871 (US$670).
