LG G5 vs Samsung Galaxy S6 vs Google Nexus 6P: specs comparison

LG G5 vs Samsung Galaxy S6 vs Google Nexus 6P
The LG G5 is hot out of the oven, and it really brings a lot of excitement to an industry that has been a bit stale lately. The modular body of LG's G5 shows that one can have a metal unibody and a removable battery at the same time. A commendable design feat indeed!

But the expansion module aside, how does the G5 stack up against two other notable Android warriors - the beautifully-crafted Galaxy S6 and the gorgeous Nexus 6P? As we were quite intrigued by this, we devised a brief specs comparison that will show us who's boss... at least on paper, that is!
