The much-awaited LG G5 and Samsung Galaxy S7 are rumoured to be launched at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) to be held in Barcelona starting Feb. 22. Samsung and LG have not revealed the phone specs officially, but leaked reports reveal innovative features. A comparison between the devices will help you decide which one to buy.
Scheduled for Feb. 21, the LG G5 is vying for the spotlight in its fight against Samsung’s Galaxy S7. While stereotype designs are a passé, LG has new plans for its upcoming handset with a new accessory slot to be positioned at the bottom of the device, The Verge reported. While the LG G5 is a powerhouse of new features like dual displays, hardware specs and camera lenses; Samsung’s Galaxy S7 tucks in 5 brilliant features, according to Forbes.
Tech Times reports that the LG G5 will probably sport a 5.5-inch or 5.6-inch display screen with 4K resolution and 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. If you prefer larger displays, the Galaxy S7’s 5.1-inch screen might not impress you. However, its screen resolutions of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels offer great clarity in every picture.
Venture Beat claims that the LG G5 will use a dual lens configuration for its rear camera with 16MP power and a 135-degree wide angle capability. LG will maintain the same 8MP front camera with an f/2.0 aperture capacity. On the contrary, Samsung will reportedly reduce its rear camera resolution from 16MP to 12MP. Although there are a lot of apprehensions surrounding the company’s new initiative, rumours claim that the drop in camera mega pixel will help Samsung introduce a super-fast f/1.7 aperture capacity with improved low light performance.
The LG G5 is alleged to bring down its battery power from 3,000mAH to 2,800mAH. However, keep this in mind that the G5’s battery will supposedly power a more efficient processor and a smaller display. Compared to the Galaxy S6’s battery capacity, the Galaxy S7 battery is expected to be 20 percent more powerful.
Hence, in a battle between LG G5 versus Samsung Galaxy S7, both the phones are equally competent and a winner in their own rights.
