LG G3 vs Samsung Galaxy S5 vs Sony Xperia Z2: specs comparison
One thing is for sure: the LG G3 definitely arrived with a bang. The company's brand new flagship sure packs some seriously drool-worthy hardware, not to mention that it is all nestled within an attractive and, all things considered, compact body. And that's not even half of it.

We're, of course, referring mainly to that super-sharp, 1440 x 2560 (QHD) resolution IPS display, but we're also anxious to see how the G3's 13-megapixel camera with the company's new OIS+ stabilization tech, a two-tone flash, and a laser beam focus assist performs. Especially compared to its equally-solid rivals in Samsung's Galaxy S5 and Sony's Xperia Z2.

Indeed, the S5 and the Z2 are shaping up to be one of the G3's main adversaries in the eyes of the industry as a whole. Neither of the two have as an impressively-sounding display, sure, but they're chock-full on hardware features in other areas. The S5, for its part, touts a dedicated fingerprint sensor and a heart rate monitor, while the Z2 offers stereo speakers. The two are also dust and water-resistant -- a chink in the LG G3's armor.

So how do they compare on paper? It's neck-and-neck, we'll tell you that, but the differences are there. Take a look!
