HTC 10 vs LG G5 vs Galaxy S7 vs Galaxy S7 edge: Which one you'd rather buy?

So far in 2016, we have witnessed the arrival of a pretty intriguing selection of high-end Android champs. Needless to say, the oh-so-posh Samsung Galaxy S7, the fancy S7 edge, the modular LG G5, and the promising HTC 10 are the hottest topics on the Android scene right now. 

We generally feel like Samsung has done a better job than LG at making the ultimate phone of H1 2016, though you'll have to wait for our review of the HTC 10 to find out whether the Taiwan-based manufacturer will stir up the status quo. 

We are aware that most of you hardly have any first-hand experience with the HTC 10 yet, but still, we are quite impatient to ask you which one among the following four champs you'd rather buy. Yes, it's time for our poll of the day!

Without further ado, quickly make your choice: Galaxy S7, S7 edge, LG G5, or HTC 10?

Which phone you'd rather get?

Galaxy s7 edge cant even hold as many tabs open as the iPhone 6... yeah the phone that as 1gb. Galaxy s7 edge in some areas are amazing and in others its real life performance is just disappointing. HTC 10 is looking promising

Bullcrap. On my exynos S7 edge, I can open as many tabs as I wish, and I am yet to face any app or Web page reload.

...that's great for anyone living outside of the United States or anyone here who will pony up the cash to import one. Other than that, we're stuck with the S7s that have Snapdragons.

It's not a Samsung issue this year, go check the speedtest between the SD S7 and the G5, both phones had to reload the exact same apps. The exynos S7 didn't reload any.

You can get the Exynos Unlock Variant off Amazon or even Ebay cheaper than the Carrier variants.

i have used iphone 5s/6 and now use Samsung s6 edge, please dont BS, all are good performers, battery life and screens are joke on iphone(regular size), then takes time to figure out how to get rid of toucwich, but its possible with custom launchers, i use nova launcher. Iphone users use all same xx by xx icon grid lounchers :d HTC gets my vote since it has best UI from the box. Iphone guys take a walk with that old tech.

guess your talking about the SD820 version right? the RAM management in the exynos is in a class of it`s own(even spanks G5)

True, my exynos note 5 has yet to ever have to reload a app in the 7 or 8 months I have had it.

funny we tested both SD820 edge vs exynos edge and they both keep same amount of app in memory so identical memory management. you guys do know both version have the same software and same amount of ram right?

How about you shoot a video while doing your tests? Until then, I ll take phonebuff's speedtest over yours. Mind you, he wasn't the only one who did this test, and they all the same result. The Exynos version never reloads any apps, contrary to the SD version of the S7 and also the G5.

You are lying, as always. There are multiple tests that sd820 version of s7 can't hold half of the exynos version.

121. johanbiff

Posts: 415; Member since: Mar 31, 2015 No reloading on the exynos variant..G5 and sd820 s7 reload the same apps. Please stop spreading lies on PA.

Open too many tabs on an Phone and it slows down badly.

Wow, this shows that Mr. Apple fanboy has 0 understanding of computer science and the idea of Garbage collection. Maybe the dumbass should read a bit before writing at all. A garbage collector doesn't use memory and force large memory requirements, but frees null references in memory that is no longer pointed to by any applications. The reason why android phones need more RAM is the well known fact that the Java garbage collector runs opportunistically when cpu cycles are least used. Developers can force it to run more often, but this causes performance issues due to the costly mark and sweep method the Java garbage collector uses

You know the iphone 6 doesn't have any multitasking, so those tabs are not actually apps kept in memory on the i6? Where as on Android those apps are still in memory... Fkwit alert LOL

What difference does it make as long you can do both at once still. I can listen to music while doing something else. I would call that multitasking.

Not a clown but a true Samsung fanboy. And why does it bother you if he loves and praises Samsung the advanced technology company? At least he is worshiping the dumbass iFruit.
