Seven reasons to buy a Galaxy S6 instead of an LG G4

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and its edgy sibling are a radical departure from what Sammy's flagships used to look like up until the Galaxy S5. A metal-and-glass construction that oozes premium has finally put a stop to the complaints that Samsung's premium smartphones feel like plastic toys and has showed that the manufacturer can, indeed, give its competitors a run for their money when it comes to design.

LG also has its competitor in the ring – up for sale today in some regions, up to a couple of days in others, the G4 brings its own unique take on classy design, with a subtle curve, a leather back variant, and LG's signature thin bezels. You'd be forgiven if you are not sure which one of these you'd rather go with. We've taken a look at the possible reasons that may sway your decision towards purchasing the G4. Now, let's take a look at a few arguments in favor of the Galaxy S6. If you vibe with at least half of these – the S6 may be your phone.

The guy who wrote this article is really bad at comparing. These are totally subjective.Except for 5 though. You cant blame that.

For me decision is simple, LG's hardware and software are both uglier than Samsung, so if I have to choose between these two I'll go with S6.

No. No, it isn't. That thing is ugly as sin. Besides, your name doesn't scream "biased" at all.

S6 is truly in a class of its own. WTF was that design from LG? Don't even bother comparing the two.

G4 wasn't the top phone LG was supposed to make this year it supposed to announce a big ass top gear phone with is more expensive for sure I'm looking forward for the announcement.

S6/ s6 edge is better. It also has ufs 2.0 and ddr4 RAM. But the G4 has removable battery and SD card slot.

You can not have have ufs and sd card at the same time, so it's one or the other, I take keeping the speed of the phome after 1 month, the s6 will be super fast in 2 years time

LG always has the Nexus series to depend on if G4 doesn't sell as expected.

The only thing good about the LG G4's existence is that they're giving Samsung competition in the camera quality department. Which means we'll see even more impressive camera hardware technology being showcased in the Note 5 and Galaxy S7.

Sorry to say but it's just a good back camera phone and that it, it's not an hi spec phone Thats all and it shows it in the price, any company can make an under spec phone and add a good camera, I.e. Why the iPhone's got a good camera as they go cheap on all other specs like screen and so on

S6 Edge looks great, S6 however looks the same, nothing special. Both have great hardware, but personally I have no use for a curved edge that I need to cover up with a case anyway, a removable battery is much more important to me.

Why do you need to remove a battery?

because I have 300 apps that drain the note 4 battery in half a day and life is to short to wait for your phone to charge. pop in go in 20 seconds and I got 100%. Average charge time for average phone is 1.5 hrs. Don't have time to wait. How do people buy a phone where they can't change the battery?!!!!!!!!

Since I am more attached to functionality and consumer control, I don't lock myself into a certain brand. The years I had with HTC, Palm and Samsung, to name a few, have allowed me to ignore status quo. I purchase on the features most useful to me. The new G4 seems to most closely fit these needs and I look forward to more feedback on this device. John B.

Pretty good comparison. Size and feel are subjective, of course. But not bad.

To people blaming him for making everything subjective: that's why he said things like "if that's your thing"

For another aspects, I agree. But the front camera? While the S6 front camera could capture wider angle, the G4 sensor camera is better. Could you see the image result is just even than the S6? Why don't you write in another article titled "Five reasons to buy an LG G4 instead of a Samsung Galaxy S6" that the G4 cameras were better than the S6?

Don't buy either. But Note 4 or s5. bigger battery. removable battery. sd memory slot. and waterproof for the s5.
