Clash of flagships: Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge vs Galaxy S7 vs LG G5 Specs Comparison

Samsung and LG both are done launching their latest flagships for the year 2016. LG launched the LG G5 earlier today and Samsung’s announcement of the Galaxy S7 came out just after a few hours of the LG G5.s7-h111

LG has managed to bring a unique and innovative device in the form of the G5. LG G5 sports quite many features that we have never seen on any other smartphone before. The G5 sports a modular design which helps it to host a slide-out battery compartment accompanied by a microSD card slot. The G5 packs mighty specifications inside a metallic build.LG-G5 (3)

Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, which was a victim of massive leaks leading the device to no surprises is pretty much the same as that of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are powered up with top-notch specifications and like the G5, these devices do not offer a removable battery but do offer a microSD card slot. Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge both are water resistant, which is another plus point for both these devices.
