Reader's choice: LG G3 outscores Samsung Galaxy S5

With so many high-end smartphones out there, it's impossible for us to avoid comparing them on a whole bunch of different levels. We've made detailed comparisons, specs comparisons, and what not, but one thing we didn't have until recently was a dedicated "reader's choice" comparison, where our users could step into our shoes and vote for the handsets they think are superior in comparison with their rivals...

I can say Sammy haters. S5 should be up at least in camera and display.

S5 IS STILL MUCH BETTER THAN G3 Simply the iboys manipulated the poll with their votes. And PA know, and expected that. Don't be naïve. The iboys are all over here to fight with Samsung. LOL

Yes it's all a big conspiracy against Samsung! I really hope you don't actually believe what you type sometimes as it sounds totally ridiculous.

The Lg G3 has an awesome screen plus it has a pefect camera, exactly like the S5, but there is something in it that is different anyway...

You must ask PA HOW THEY COULD PROVE, THAT THE IBOYS ARE NOT VOTING on this poll. I'm sure that PA know very well that the iboys vote on every poll against Samsung, but close their eyes , BECAUSE THAT'S THEIR POINT with those polls. Samsung bashing must go on. Right. Now they hide behind the dirty trick: "Once again, our readers were given the opportunity to vote for the phone they think is superior " ROTFL

No. It's NOT. Simply the iboys manipulated the poll with their votes.

G3 is a great phone but in these kind of polls all of the haters will vote against samsung devices. Remember that poll about S5 and HTC One M8 when S5 outscored by M8 in camera part which was funny!

And the charging...my GS5 literally charges 10% in 10 minutes..it's noticeably faster than the G3

PhoneArena says G3 charge is much faster than S5. I get about 10% in 10 minutes as well on the G3 (and the G3 has a larger battery so it has more battery to charge)

Otherwise I agree with other voters but GS5 has much better display. Resolution and size are not everything.

That it does, the LG's screen is washed out compared to the beautiful display of the GS5!

You can easily adjust the contrast of the G3's screen. It's in the accessibility menu. Just check XDA-developers. With that being said, no LCD is going to match the contrast levels of an AMOLED display. That's just a fact as an LCD can't completely turn off it's light source to display true black.

Some people prefer natural, accurate colours over saturated colours.

So GS5 will give it to them, too
