It will run about 2.15 GHz per cycles. Samsung will launch both Snapdragon and Exynos version of Galaxy S7, the Exynos 8890 is an Octa core processor with 2.3 GHz means this is really an exceptional improvement by Samsung. If we compare Exynos with snapdragon, then Exynos is comparatively more powerful.

According LG’s official announcement, LG G5 Smartphone is going to have 16 mega pixels back camera and 8 megapixels front camera with laser focus. It will come with some really great bunch of sensor compromising fingerprint, Dual Sided LED flash, HDR, touch focus, and Optical image stabilisations.

Yes, this time it’s looks to be true. Samsung Galaxy S7 and LG G5, both will have fingerprint sensors and fast charing. But LG still have a faster charging capability with Quick Charge 3.0 technology.

    I’ve had the S3 and upgraded to the S5 21-months ago. The S5 was far better by all standards. Now that the S6 has whizzed by, and the 2 S7’s are out, it’s time to upgrade again! ?

    The S5, S7, & S7 Edge all have micro SD slots. The S7 Edge also has a removable battery with greater capacity than the G5. I’ve used a mophie Juice Pack case on my S5 which solves the frequent recharge problem, and it’s out for the S7 & S7 Edge also, not yet for the G5. The S7 & S7 Edge also have the always-on feature and IP68 water-resistant rating. Put a decent case on them and you don’t have to worry about dings and breakage. Granted, the S7 & S7 Edge do not have the IR blaster or a 16 MP rear-facing camera like the S5, but those aren’t deal-breakers. The S7 has a 5.1″ & the S7 Edge has a 5.5″ screen, but they pack larger pixels, giving a superior resolution display. I just received the S7 and was contemplating the S7 Edge, or possibly the G5. Larger doesn’t always mean better. Once I felt the S7 in my hand, (same size as my S5), and considered the practicality of it, with a mophie case for sure, it suits me just fine! (Can you tell I’m a Samsung devotee?) ?

      S7and the edge do not have a removable battery says specs. Why do u say the edge does? The g5 has a removable battery

    Una pena estan retocadas para mal las fotos tomadas por LG G5, por tanto podrian tambien estar mejoradas las del S7. Una Pena

    I got the LG G4 just ordered LG G5 looked hard at the Galaxy S7 Edge
    Decided to go with LG G5 Samsung seems to be flooding the market.

      I just had the s7 edge for 12 days. I returned it. I’ve had the LG flex and the one before that. I really liked those. I’m getting the LG 5 on Friday.
      On the Samsung s7 Edge… the edge is it’s biggest drawback for me.
      If you’re watching a video and you touch the edge it just jumps to some other screen or video sometimes. It does this a lot for other things too if you don’t hold the phone just right. And the “Edge” panel where you can put your most used apps I think isn’t really worth it. It’s just as easy, or easier to just change the window to next screen. Also if you want to put more contacts on the Edge panel than what’s on there you have to buy more panels online. The S7 has some really cool tools on the camera though. I’m still going with the LG 5

        I agree totally. Ive had the G4 and love it and now trying out the edge and its lame to be honest with all the faults you pointed. battery is still poor but bigger.

    Both look like great phones, but I am surprised that nobody is commenting that the G5 has a USB Type-C Reversible connector (similar to Apple’s) while the S7 stays with the old micro USB. To me that is more of a game changer. USB cords and connectors wearing out has been an issue for years, and reversible connectors make a huge difference in it’s useful life.

    No one mentions the infra red, I heard LG has it and Samsung doesn’t. I use infra red for everything in my house, air-con heating TV stereo. I don’t think I could do without it. I have an S4 because I swap the battery 4-5 times a day, can’t do without a swappable battery. Glass back on the S7 is a bad idea too, it caused many cut hands with the iPhone and a phone gets dropped and bumped so metal/glass combo is just silly. If metal was a good material for something that gets knocked about they’d still make car bumpers out of it. A real premium material would be a polycarbonate like they make plastic guns out of, not metal which transfers shock into the glass, scratches, dents, gets hot and can warp. I wish they’d stop copying Apple and instead learn from their mistakes. Metal as a premium material is a marketing scam, I’m an electronic engineer with 20+ yrs experience and I’d go the G5 over the S7 this time but am still hoping someone gets it right before I commit, maybe I’ll have to wait another year. 🙁

    ?????

    • Albert Pak

      How does the lg have a better camera than the s7? Both are known to be on par in terms of their picture quality. The only real difference worth mentioning is the dual camera setup on the lg while samsung has a faster auto focus.

      • Sajjad

        LG have the better camera no contest

    I love the galaxy so series but I am going with the LGG5 this time!!!

    I haven’t had a Samsung phone for quite a while, having had the G2, G3, G4, and V10. However, I have been intrigued by Samsung’s latest offering. I’m still not sold on a non-removable battery however. It may keep me siding with LG.

    Who writes this blog, by the way. The info is good. The grammar is horrible.

  11. Im running with with aG4 just upgrade my software to android 6. 0 it’s perfect so will rather go for G5

  12. para mi sería el galaxy s7 a diferencia del G5 , el galaxy s7 tiene certificación ip68 la cual indica que el celular se puede sumergir al agua y también resistente al polvo es una gran ventaja que tiene el samsung

  13. fafa

    I have not updated my s5 to s6 or the note 5 due to the lack of a sd card slot.
    I am not going to be updating to the s7 given that it will not have a usb type c slot.
    Given these…..i am going to take buy a G5.

  14. momo

    Am going for the G5 with its always on feature and bigger screen …….yeah G5

  15. I am with Galaxy S7. I love this phone and waiting to watch what’s new coming this phone.
