Xiaomi Mi 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 vs LG G5: specs comparison

Xiaomi Mi 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 vs LG G5: specs comparison
Xiaomi's Mi 5 is here and while the announcement presentation is not yet over, all the fundamental info about this new flagship from the Far East is already here. We can safely say that the Mi 5 is the most affordable Snapdragon 820 device right now, and it won't be far-fetched to say that it's also among the more impressive ones. 

Interestingly, two of the other pretty interesting Snapdragon 820 chipset devices got announced merely a couple of days ago. The ones we are talking about are the Samsung Galaxy S7 (though it comes with the Exynos 8890 in many markets) and the LG G5. For sure, neither of these brings a knife to a gunfight, as merely skimming through their specs sheets induces heavy breathing in us!

Here's a three-way comparison that will show you what we mean:
