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