Why would they include the water resistance feature if their phone doesn't have it? That's just poor marketing.

LG honestly seems really desperate to attack Samsung.

Because people are complaining about the design. So that leaves them thinking ; what shall we do? "let's attack the S7". How stupid and low can LG get.

It would be sweet to see the Note 6 have the IP68 rating too but I'm guessing it's a bit more difficult to do that with the S Pen.

I'm on T-mobile's Jump On Demand deal. Pretty awesome plan actually. I've just accepted I'll pay 30 bones a month forever, to be able to get up to 3 phones each year. Screw it. It's worth it to me. Geek out, freek out. It's a nerds wet dream. I just pre-ordered the S7 Edge....and I'll switch to the Note 6 later this year....then I'll probably go with the S8.... I may want to throw in a LG and or HTC along the way, for shats n giggles ;) Hahahaha what have I done.... I love it! JOD FTW!

He is right... he can pick which one he likes... batter batter life+ water resistance is the best...

Marketing at it's worst, seems a bit desperate. Reminds me of HTC.

I love when companies take shots at each other but this infographic and "The Real Use of 7" are just lame.

57. Shocky unregistered

No, it's pretty lame. HTC staff not long ago took to social media to slag of Samsung and it was embarrassing. If you have the hardware to back it up it's not so bad, but they don't.

Why is a 5,3" Display better LG ? You can get the Edge with 5,5" or the S7 with 5,1"

LG G5 best price, Galaxy s7 bad price.

So you know the price of the G5..that's funny considering there is NO OFFICIAL PRICING

G5 Will be at least 200 dollars Cheaper, and has more functionality than the sad7 series. Both are still Kia's, but my choice if I had to choose would be the G5

its possible for them to drop the price and make it $200 cheaper.. if it didnt sell that well of course..

Haha. Of course they cherry picked the features to highlight. Haha. Fanboy made info graphic at it's worse. Reminds me of PA and fan boy Samsung vs some other phone speed tests with cheery picked apps they know restart on the Samsung and don't on another phone. How many years phones have a modular design? Not many. Megapixels do count, until it is proven then dont. So having the larger count in this case, doesn't mean better. All phones have a power save mode which effects how bright a screen will be. Not giving it seems market by name doesn't mean it doesn't have.

Why did PA come so hard to defend the S7?

47. TechieXP1969

What are they defending? They are simply saying the infographic is bull. Can't you see that? LG and Samsung share a lot in common, like the same land mass. LG will never be what Samsung is. SAMSUNG VS LG, everything Samsung makes is better. Samsung makes better phomes, better tvs, better appliances and displays. The best phone doesn't have to be loaded with features or have the best specs. After all no 2 phones are meant to be created equal. But, Samsung is the top selling Android oem because their phones do offer the best most rounded devices with nice specs, nice features, reasonable price and more. LG G series is better than many of Samsung phones, just not the South and not even close to the Note.

LG climbed to #1 Globally in tv`s it is the top global brand for home and appliances has a greater market share on AC..The only reason why samsung is greater than LG on the smartphone market is beacuse LG was late to the smartphone game when samsung and apple have already grabed majority of market share..LG is a better brand!
