HTC 10 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 vs LG G5: specs comparison
The HTC 10 has just made its big debut, and it's the new contender in the Android high-end space. It is coming later than the two big new releases: the Samsung Galaxy S7 and LG G5, and will face fierce competition from both of them.

So how does the newer HTC 10 stack up against the Galaxy S7 and G5?

You've already seen the design, so here we'll focus on a cold-blooded specs comparison, one that looks at all these three high profile phones side to side. We compare first the actual sizes and dimensions to see what's the difference in holding these devices in hand, then we look at screen technology, the system chip that powers the whole thing and finally we also explore the specs of the camera and the battery. And while all three phones run on the Snapdragon 820 system chip, there are quite a few other important differences. Take a look right below.
