LG G3 vs Apple iPhone 5s

The LG G3 and Apple iPhone 5s duo is a fine example for the great Android vs iOS rivalry, that's why we are staging a cage match between the design, specs and performance paradigms of the mobile juggernauts' flagships for the season.

Here is an answer for you, if apple makes a 5.5" phone you would be surprised it might even sell more than the smaller one. People buy iPhones because it's apple, they will buy anything and leave with it once it's from apple.

That's a wonderful answer and makes a ton of sense.

Sunspider is a browser benchmark. I dont think it is a performance benchmark.

...because comparing a nearly year-old phone with one released a few weeks ago is completely fair.

Even though the G3 destroys the iPhone hardware wise, the iPhone can easily keep up with the G3 because it is optimized so well.

It's really funny how everyone thinks that their phone is best but in retrospect ur preference is determined by how much money u can afford to spend on a phone so If u have more money u will prefer the iPhone and if you have less well whatever is out there

I feel the people doing the comparison were biased from the beginning. Everything that the G3 had going for it they seemed to belittle it. Just the them saying the resolution of the G3 was over kill even though it's the best on the market. Or how they down played how much storage the g3 had by saying the iPhone has other storage options. But considering the iPhone's other storage options cost extra money, that is a HUGE difference but yet the belittle the storage the g3 has. Or when they talked about the new way the g3 had a New initiative volume and power option on the back, but yet they said the iphone's volume controls were "breezy" to use bc of it's size, like wth?! I had the 5s and just upgraded this week to a g3 and the G3 kicks the 5s' ass. But I will say that with the 5s being a ur old and the g3 being new, it was kind of an unfair comparison. But if they were going to do it anyways, they should have been straight up about it. Not down playing the g3. The iPhone 6 will be a wayyy fairer comparison.
