Samsung Galaxy S7 vs LG G4
Galaxy S7 has an "extra volume" mode, which will boost the sound when you need it to.
The microphones on both devices are also satisfactory, delivering our speech to our callers with no issues on the other side, though, the Galaxy S7 does tend to do a smidgen better in this scenario. But again, either one of these handsets does a great job at actually being a phone.
The LG G4 also packs a 3,000 mAh cell, and is also not amazingly impressive in terms of longevity. In fact, it lasted 6 hours and 6 minutes on the very same test. So the battle is quite even on this front.
Now, both smartphones have features, which give them a certain advantage over the other. The LG G4 has a user-replaceable battery, which means that powerusers can carry a spare cell in their pocket, bag, or purse for a quick midday swap. The Galaxy S7, on the other hand, supports wireless charging, so if one outfits their working station with a wireless pad and tends to visit coffee shops, which have set up Qi pads for their customers, they can pretty much keep their phone charged throughout the day as well.
If you are looking for a quick recharge, the Galaxy S7 can go from 0% to 100% in about an hour and a half, while the LG G4 takes slightly longer than two full hours.
There are two reasons why you might be interested in comparing these two handsets. You either own an LG G4 and are interested in upgrading to one of this year's heavy hitters, or are looking for a new phone and are wondering whether it's a good idea to shell out for the shiny new Samsung Galaxy S7, or just go for a discounted, slightly older model in the face of the LG G4.
One doesn't need to keep score in order to see that the Galaxy S7 is a clear winner in this comparison, but hey – it has the benefit of being the newer piece of tech. However, this does not make the G4 obsolete or useless.
If you are a casual user who's looking for something that's not metal, but still has that flagship flair, a great camera, and will do a good job at keeping you connected through social media, email, calls, and texts, without breaking a sweat – the G4 is still a great device to go for, and can currently be had for a great price, too.
However, if you want to have the shiniest, most powerful, most advanced piece of tech that's currently out on the market, there is no doubt that the Galaxy S7 should be among your top choices.
