true. this info graphic is questionable or not. I have my own questions from LG. Will LG release capacitive button module to replace onscreen buttons? Why there are no additional camera flash on camera module?

"Why there are no additional camera flash on the camera module?" I've been asking Samsung the same question since Apple introduced the dual tone flash. Not on the camera module though, I'm pretty sure I don't like a flash, flashing on the module itself, LOL

I see this modular design as very usefull.. Gaming controler case with dual speaker with analogue stick ect would be crazy!

Lg is kinda losing my respect with this... I admired them more than any other company but this is soooo lame.

Out of curiosity, why is this the thing that affects your decision? It's just a bunch of cherry picked facts to make their device look better. It's dumb, but I'm not sure what the big surprise is here...

Such infographic just proves how dumb they are and how they have nothing to prove that there phone is better, is 16mp better than 12? That's alone just proved how thier camera will suck. I can feel the weakness in them trying to shift the eyes away from the s7

Changing decision suddenly over a childish matter also proves how narrow minded a person are.

It's really dumb. Why to be so much hyper sensitive over a marketing stunt?

Samsung also did it scroll down till you read this title "Not All Smartphones Are Created Equal"http://www.samsung.com/us/explore/galaxy-s-6-features-and-specs/

Can't believe they let that infographic get out.

The .2" bigger screen is moot point since LG has on screen buttons so the real screen space ends up being the same, in a much larger body. S7 is more compact I don't think the G5 is going in the right direction. G4 was a much more appealing phone

I hope someone will release capacitive button module for G5. Not a fan of onscreen buttons

exactly my point. And they can't compete with S7 camera from what I have seen so far. RIP G5. G4 was a lot more appealing this G5 childish direction is bothersome to say the least. I had some respect for LG but lost all of it lately.

What you on about, it can not even come close to the G4 cam, it's got nothing on the s7

I was wondering if u LG or other companies fans LG made similar model to G4...will be ure comment be like: ``OMG its same as G4..nothing special`` .... G5 Is unique and i dont like it... I LOVE IT..+ for the brand+performance+price > better then Samsung !

LG is trying too hard...this is extremely classless...it doesn't help that the G5 is also going on sale more than a week after the S7 and S7 edge are available..If i were them I would market what makes the G5 special while making sure that they have all the modules available at launch to really market the slot feature

Samsung did the same kind of stunt in the past...

but I expect such marketing BS from Samsung..as Apple's main competitor and the OEM the press likes to dig at the most I've seen some pretty lame moves from them constantly..LG doesn't have the same level of brand recognition

For how bad this infographic is, I wouldn't be surprised if it was fanboy made.
