Xiaomi Mi 4 vs Samsung Galaxy S5 vs LG G3: specs comparison
The Xiaomi Mi 4, the company's newest flagship smartphone, just got unveiled. The device totes a killer combination between top-of-the-line hardware specs and really adequate suggested retail price, which will surely attract flocks of potential buyers. We are talking about a quad-core Snapdragon 801, humming at 2.5GHz, 3GB of RAM, a hefty 3080mAh juicer behind the swappable back covers, a 5-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, plus 13MP rear and 8MP front-facing cameras. The Mi 4 comes with either 16 or 64GB of native storage on board. Can you guess how much it will retail for? $320 and $400 (in China, that is), respectively. Sounds quite appealing, right?

Without a shadow of doubt, the main rivals of the Mi 4 are the latest flagship device from the likes of Samsung, LG, HTC, Sony, etc. We decided to throw the specs listing of the Mi 4 at a duo of its most prominent and popular rivals – the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the LG G3 – and see how it fares against them in terms of pure hardware specifications. Nonetheless, the battle will be more than heated.

Which one is the winner? Well, that will be something that you, our readers, have to decide yourselves! Skim through the specs sheets below and leave a comment in the comments section!
