10 reasons why the Galaxy S6 is a better phone than the LG G4

10 reasons why the Galaxy S6 is a better phone than the LG G4
We had quite a blast checking out the LG G4 at a private event ahead of its announcement, and loved what the company achieved with it. The phone definitely feels like it's matured enough to be taken way more seriously than ever before, and it's chock-full with extras and features.

But how does it compare to an already established industry-heavyweight like the Samsung Galaxy S6? In many ways, the two seem to be on par for the most part, but this isn't always the case. Indeed, there are features and qualities that, objectively, are points for Samsung's top shelfer. Granted, the magnitude of some of these omissions/weaknesses on the LG G4's end will vary depending on a person's needs and likes.

So what are they? Join us in the gallery slideshow below that outlines the 10 reasons why the Galaxy S6 is a better phone than the LG G4. When done, make sure to go through the opposite list that can be found right here.

More storage options? How? You have card slot on G4... You must stop with these retarded comparisons, or at least put some good reasons. Wireless charging is ok reason but usually you just coming up with random things.

I've come to realize that a lot of internal storage is much better than having little storage and a micro SD slot. Apps and games can't be stored on external micro SD's (without root) and that's the main memory hog in today's phones. On my 32GB micro sd, I only use like 5 GB's for photos on music, but I only have 1 GB left on my internal, mostly occupied with apps and games, so anyday, I'll take a variety of internal storage, than a micro SD slot.

Exactly. My problem was always low storage on internals and tons of free space on SD card....With the S6, I don't care. And ALL of my memory is blazing fast, not just half or 1/3 of it....

Agree... And I was one of those who always ask for removable battery and SD card, but now after having the S6 for 3 weeks, I don't even care anymore, and the new S6 using its internal storage is insanely faster comparing to the S5.

Yeah but still no microsd. You can have S6 internal + sd slot. How hard could that be?

As nice as that sounds, neither of my 128GB sd cards on my phone and tablets are not even close to being 1/3 full and my internal storage is at 1.4GBs free. Having said that more internal storage please (32GB is getting to a point where it's just too small)

Ufs 2.0 does not work with sd cards due to limiting the bandwidth

Exactly! SD Card is near to useless! Bigger internal storage is the correct and better solution.

what about bigger internal lus microSD slot :D microSD is obviously slower compared to internal storage, but its still fine to store all those movies, music, document, and stuff :D

I also agree, but for me my carrier support 4G+ and i have a medium internet plan which give me 8GB of bandwidth, with that i stopped storing media on my device anymore, youtube for videos, Google drive for documents, FB and Instagram for photos, and online radios are doing great.

That's one of so many reasons why people prefer iPhones. Fandroids have been denying this the whole time, and all of a sudden , internal storage is better since GS6. WTF? BTW, GS6 seems to be doomed: at the beginning, vice president Lee made the show around GS6. As the initial sales numbers turn out to be disappointing, it's CEO Shin all of a sudden. We know why: Sammy is already looking for a scapegoat for GS6's fail, and it cannot be VP Lee. Farewell CEO Shin.

Who's we? What's propper? What's bennefits? Why do you sound so idiotic?

-the iphone didn't and doesn't have a UFS 2.0 storage .. the S6 does -by then microsd cards had more permissions (like installing apps or even copying from/to and i've read lots of complains about kitkat and SD cards) ... now google is restricting its permissions -the s6 comes with 32GB as minimum option for storage, the iphone comes with 16GB and it's more expensive (still.. i don't imagine using a phone without microSD card, but i may get used to it) -we will see about the S6 success or fail in next months

Let's talk about the 10 reasons it's better. Battery and SD slot are two really good points...

There are tons of more reasons why S6 is better than G4. Moreover G4 doesn't compete in regular phone's category. It should compete as a phablet with that design. Had high expectations from this device but just like Sony and HTC, LG disappointed this year.

can be better but low ppl will be buying it ..

I love the battery replacement idea. For me I always buy phones with this capability. So I don't have to wait for my battery to charge and worry about over charging my battery! :)

Who care on removable battery. Most people no need it. I use mobile phone at least 10 years and I never own a spare battery before at all as it is unnecessary.

I have Jump insurance from T-mobile so if my phones battery starts dying I'll just send it to Samsung and they replace it. I got the phone back in 3 days. Samsung also told me that even if I didn't have insurance they would still replace the battery and the total cost would be what it would cost me to buy a new battery.

I haven't had the need to replace any of my battery. Instead i carry one of those 14kmah battery blocks and it does the trick in charging my iphone and my note 3

It's a serious problem that nobody acknowledges. Students rather work in Samsung instead of being a doctor because "we won't get that respected". Lg also, LG and Sammy control everything there
