Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge vs LG V10
The S7 Edge has a nifty extra loud mode that will be of use to construction workers and others who work in noisy environments, or those with somewhat impaired hearing.
The LG V10 is a disappointment in terms of battery life: it can barely last a full day, while the S7 Edge lasts the whole day for even heavier users.
Galaxy S7 Edge, you intuitively tend to think that real-life battery life is also quite amazing. It’s good, but it might not live right up to the sky-high expectations. We still get a full day of use on it easily, even with heavier use and the neat Always-on Display feature, but the average user will still likely need to charge it up every night as it won’t quite stretch to two-day battery life.
The LG V10, on the other hand, is quite the disappointment in terms of battery life, and you might have a hard time getting through a busy day without recharging. Its 3,000mAh battery cell definitely seems insufficient for the large display and the additional drain of the secondary ticker screen.
Luckily, both support quick charging, which would allow users to quickly top up the juice and even a short recharge could give the battery enough of a boost to last more.
Battery life (hours) Higher is better
Samsung Galaxy S7 edge 7h 18 min (Good)
LG V10 5h 51 min (Average)
Charging time (minutes) Lower is better
Samsung Galaxy S7 edge 99
LG V10 65
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and the LG V10. The two are diametrically opposed in terms of looks: it really is a story of the beauty and the beast, where the Galaxy S7 Edge, with its extremely elegant and solid build, fits well in the hand and is a joy to use, while the LG V10, with its rough materials and overly big dimensions, feels very crude and unfinished. This makes a big difference in daily use.
On paper, the two are also vastly different in terms of performance, with the newer Snapdragon 820 on the S7 Edge beating the hell out of the older Snapdragon 808 on the V10, but in reality, both feel impressively snappy and the difference cannot be felt in the daily grind. The cameras on both are different in very subtle ways, but at the end of the day both capture excellent looking images and videos. We like the quality of images and video better on the V10, but the S7 Edge is not much behind and its camera app and auto-focus are ridiculously fast.
The thing that holds the V10 back the most is the disappointing battery life, as the phone often won’t last the whole day if you’re a heavier user. The S7 Edge does much better in terms of battery life and can last a full day under most circumstances.
There is a neglectable, $50 price difference between the two, and at the end of the day, it’s the S7 Edge that seems like the better device: with more cool features, much better design, better battery life and an excellent camera.
- Gorgeous, stylish and comfortable design
- Very good-looking 5.5” Super AMOLED screen
- Ridiculously fast auto-focus in camera
