LG G5 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 vs Apple iPhone 6s: specs comparison

LG G5 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 vs Apple iPhone 6s: specs comparison
The LG G5 is already here, and so is the Galaxy S7! Undoubtedly, the most curios part of the phone is its expansion slot mechanism, which enables users to insert different modules inside the device, expanding its functionalities. This is not the only highlight of the phone, though - it's a flagship on all fronts, with hardware and design to meet its top tier status.

There are two main problems before the G5, though - one of them is called the Galaxy S7 and the other one is called the iPhone 6s. These two can hardly match some of G5's features, most notably the expansion Magic Slot, but this doesn't mean that LG's newest blows them out of the water. 

Indeed, here's how the three stack up against one another in our improvised specs comparison. We've rounded them against each other, and it's up to decide which one is best-endowed for the task at hand.
