We now have a new entrant in the tech world, the LG G5, which was launched yesterday at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. The new phone claims revolutionary designs and features, not available on the Apple iPhone 6s.
LG has something to offer that Apple can’t. It is the new modular design included in the LG G5 that invites enhanced user experience with several attachable modules for battery, DAC for audio quality, VR handset and camera. Apple iPhone 6s is a standalone device with no modules.
LG has reasons to surprise its fans and this time, the South Korean company introduced Always-on display, a driving technology to help save battery power and build a stronger battery life. “The Always-on display requires 0.8 percent of the battery’s full capacity per hours to operate,” said LG. Added to this, the phone sports a 5.3-inch QHD display screen with 554ppi, reports KnowYourMobile.
Apple iPhone 6s, however, does not feature the Always-on option and its display screen measures smaller to the LG G5 at 4.7-inches. The display is a LED-backlit IPS LCD with capacitive touchscreen at 326ppi, notes GSM Arena.
For starters, LG has a dual camera set up on the rear side. Images captured separately on both the cameras can be combined together and edited with impressive effects. The rear camera sensor is 16MP and the front camera sensor is 8MP.
Although Apple claims that its camera is the best in the world and is capable of taking 4K photos, the iPhone 6s has a lesser powerful 12MP rear camera sensor and a 5MP front camera sensor than the LG G5.
The LG G5 comes with single memory capacity having 32GB space, which can be extended up to 200GB. On the contrary, the iPhone 6s boasts three GB variants- 16GB, 64GB and 128GB, but the device has no option for expandable memory.
The LG G5 has a removable 2,800mAH battery, while the iPhone 6s has a built-in, non-removable battery of 1715mAH, reports IBTimes.
The LG G5 comes at a tentative price tag of $599 and the iPhone 6s 16GB phone costs $649.
To summarize, the LG G5 wins over iPhone 6s with a modular design, larger display resolution, expandable storage option, dual camera system and larger battery. Pre-orders are available now.
