According to you, Samsung's Galaxy S6 outdoes the LG G4 in terms of design, display, UI, and camera
A week ago, we asked you to vote for the better phone: the Samsung Galaxy S6 or LG G4. We wanted you to share your opinion on a number of categories and which one handles each better, including design, display, UI, and camera. The results are now in, and we've gathered exactly 8,116 votes.

The verdict is clear: most people prefer the Galaxy S6 to the G4, with an overall 59.1% to 40.9% split in votes, respectively. Digging further, we find that our audience is most confident in Samsung's flagship's Super AMOLED, which garnered the approval of 71.6% of the voters, leaving just 28.4% who preferred the IPS LCD panel on the LG G4. The Galaxy S6 has also managed to win the hearts of many with its new, glass-on-metal design language, managing 58.74% of the votes in the Design section, leaving the leather-clad G4 with the remaining 41.26%. The closest calls came down to UI (53.53% vs 46.47%) and camera (53.07% vs 46.93%).

Here's the proof:

Because it is like that. Votes represent kida real situation 10% better camera all around 110% better display. And other 2 are subjective , but with theming on S6 it makes interface XXXXX times better.

Function over Form for intelligent people. Samsung: NO REMOVABLE BATTERY = FAIL NO SD = FAIL LG G4 = just needs a fingerprint scanner.

Long story short, the G4 is just a step below to the S6.. And that isn't a bad thing

The camera poll was flawed in that most pictures were of outdoor situtaion and only one was of low light , Knowing that G4 surpasses in lowlight and indoor

Most pictures in real life are outdoor/stronglight. But i do agree that G4 might have a slight edge in overall camera performance.

11. Shocky unregistered

They should have taken a lot more images for the comparison, but not necessarily all low light shots. A mixture would have been better, outdoors, indoors, low light, HDR and macros.

I think the testing is actually quite realistic. The G4 will absolutely murder the S6 if you use Manual in lowlight, but a.) You won't always have time for that, b.) not everyone knows how to use it / willing to learn how to use it. If used as point-and-shoot at lowlight the G4's performance is just a little notch above the S6.

In fact, if you go through the trouble of going full manual mode, you might as well enable RAW shooting (3rd party app) on the S6 too, which fully equalizes the playing field again.

True enough, easy enough to get these feature with other camera apps.

g4 is also better in AUTO Indoor shots.

How often do people take photos in crappy lighting? Those that don't know how to take photos will do this, but generally most make sure there's enough light to allow a faster shutter speed to avoid blur. Either way, none of the smartphone cameras take truly usable, noise-free low light photos.

correct. if they would make more camera comparison on all categeries outdoor day and night, indoor with light and without light. im sure LG G4 is the king!

BullC##p LG is better, useless LG fanboys flocking around and posting their bias opinons. Here the results itself prove everything, there's no need to give ur bias comments to prove LG is better bcuz its not gonna work. And why focussing on manual mode? Is auto mode so inferior that it gets blown out by the s6?

Good thing this poll is official huh! SMH. The sample group and everything were strictly controlled?

you don't need to base on this poll its is a fact that more samsung s6/s6 edges users than lg g4 users. the results of this poll is not a surprising! i tell you im using these both and g4 has better camera in overall including indoor with or without lights.

It's probably more like 90% to 10% in real life in favor of Samsung.

I'm sure most voted for Samsung simply because Samsung is a more popular company. Happens all the time:D
