LG absolutely is underrated (poll results)

Get cracking and dig out our reviews of LG's flagship G line. What do you see? Excellent scores throughout. Indeed, we've never rated an LG G series flagship lower than 9 out of 10. That's pretty darn impressive, to say the least...

I disagree with you. By example the Camera on the G4 if far superior in the hand of someone who know how to use it.

The manual mode is great, but most users will use auto and professionals who know what their doing won't be using a smartphone. Auto is what users will use 95% of the time and more often than not the LG G4 fails to deliver, which is why it did fairly badly in recent camera comparison. .

In fact even au auto its give as good result as the G4 in real life comparison. If techwebsite cant be neutral its not my fault :) Even the new moto X series get as good pictures in most case on auto. Still look bellow for your beloved S6 common issues.

Htc is underrated because my m9 has: An unresponsive touchscreen So many bugs on the ui that even when I contacted htc help on twitter, they didn't give me a proper answer and didn't know what to do Overheating(the only phone I've ever had that I had to put on a fan for it to cool down) Paint chirping off that it made the sides of my phone ugly and uncomfortable to hold, which would also affect my resalve value I feel you @shocky

As for HTC here the list of issue from same website used by Shocky. Problem : Poor battery life Issue : Overheating Glitch : Auto-rotate not working Problem : Cracked camera glass Glitch: Double-tap to wake not working Issue : bluetooth not connecting Problem : Slow charging Its interesting to see its has even less issue than S6 or G4. At the store i work not a single device was returned for overheating. I been using it since its came out ( just switched to a moto x play a few weeks back wanted to try something new ) i play lots of games never had a slowdown or lag and yeah the device get warmer than plastic or glass devices thats because aluminium is good at conducting heat and in a way its help because the SD810 do make lots of heat. Still end result is the phone is super smooth keep app longer in memory than the S6 or note 5. But the camera is crappy... really crappy. First time i ear about bug on the UI on the other hand maybe you installed something you should not? As for paints chipping off also first time i ever ear this on ANY htc device..

A lot of that is due to popularity, a huge number of Galaxy S6 are sold in comparison to a relatively small number for LG and HTC devices. The end result will be more issues reported, even if the chance of users experiencing any of them is ridiculously low.

http://imgur.com/Rxz9IOg this is my phone's side paint chirpping off. I event sent htc this but they seem to have ignored me. While my phone overheats, it does usually only happen when I play games and I could just ignore it but when my friends play and use it, they can't believe how hot my phone is. As for the ui, I contacted them the theme app is not downloading any new themes from the store ever since I had my phone and they told me it might be my internet connection but I highly doubt so as I have tried downloading from other places and it won't work. I do agree with you that the double tap to wake sometimes doesn't work and I do feel that it has to do something with the temperature of the phone. As for the camera on the back, it is still flawless and I didn't know it had an issue as you mentioned. For the slow charging, just turning the phone off or restarting does the trick

Common Samsung S6 issues as reported on digital trends same website you gone to check the G4 : Problems : Refreshing and restarting apps Issue : Battery life is poor Glitch : Wi-Fi slow , won't connect or drops Problem : Signal stregth is weak Issue : GPS not accurate Problem : Won't turn on Bug : Flash always on Glitch: Fingerprint scanner not working Issue : Screen sensitivity Problem :Persistent pop-up Glitch : Unfortunately, contacts has stopped. Problem : Call volume too low Glitch : Unfortunately, the process com.google.process.gapps has stoped Bug : Missing quick toggle for mobile data Problem : Email not working properly Problem : Performance is slow Problem : Overheating issues ( i had a client with S6 edge thats the gel case even melted on the device lol ) Issue : Screen won't auto rotate Glitch: Bluetooth connectivity issues Problem : Auto brightness turns off. And thats whitout counting thats many S6 , S6 edge , Note 5 and S6 edge + Came with bad screen thats give green and orange line when brightness is high. So to be truthfull you really say the G4 has issue and S6 is superior when S6 has as many if not more issues? Thats quite pathetic sorry.

You're a self proclaimed Samsung hater so why should anyone take you seriously? You're a joke. They weren't all from digital trends. Any Galaxy S6 users get any of these? I had apps restarting a few months after launch but not anymore.

Well if you dont beleive me not my fault. Here the link :http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/galaxy-s6-problems-and-fixes/ Also the link where you got your list from for the G4 :http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/lg-g4-problems/ You know you need to stop been an ass. The only reason ppl should take me seriously is because i work directly with those device all day long and the return speak for themself. Its dont take away the fact thats Samsung sell more android device than any others OEM at the store i work ( sometime some device will sell more for a few weeks or months but mostly its samsung the king ) Still they have the highest return ratio of all OEM. Try to open 4-5 big 3d games and switch between them its will reload after 1 or 2. M9 reload after 4-5 or even more sometime. Each OEM has good and bad by example the moto x play has its issues as well. anyway wont respond to more of your reply on this news i have other thing to do lol

Have you actually tried one yourself recently? because based on this your experience is based entirely in youtube videos from almost a year ago. Your information is either inaccurate or out of date. I didn't doubt were you got the information. Again , open question to Samsung users here, does anyone get any of these issues? because I don't.

And yet PA gave the V10, a device heavily lauded by tech enthusiasts and review sites and essentially a much better G4, a score of 7. Makes you wonder...
