While it is true to say that Samsung Galaxy S6 is not a perfect smartphone, you can agree that this phone features an amazing combination of exceptional design, a stunning screen display and a great camera.
This is essentially what makes the Galaxy S6 the best smartphone in the world today.However, this might be destined for change as soon as you get to know the latest LG G4.
The LG G4 features a stylish design that is also new to this phone in addition to a high-end screen display and a stunning camera. Samsung should be ready for any form of disappointment when this phone is finally available in the U.S. and other global markets. So, how do the two flagships compare? Here are more details.
The LG G4 features a leather back cover that makes it stand out from the crowd. This is true because unlike the more usual plastic and metal that most flagships come with, this leather back is rear and unique. This adds to its curvy appearance and amazing screen. However, the G4 might look a little larger and heavier with its 149.1 by 75.3 by 8.9mm measurements and weight of 154g.
Samsung Galaxy S6 on the other hand takes a design that is more conventional but still very stylish. It is dominated by a metal frame and a good-looking glass back that looks almost like a gem.However, your fingerprints will stay on it whenever you touch it. Better still, this phone is a little lighter and smaller than the G4 with its 136g and measurements of 143.4 by 70.5 by 6.8mm. The Galaxy S6 is a little slimmer than the G4 and this is basically due to the battery unit. The Samsung model comes with a non-removable battery that is also smaller than the G4’s removable unit.
The 5.5 inches of display on the LG G4 is a lot bigger than the 5.1 inches you get on Samsung Galaxy S6. Furthermore, both devices come with different technologies on these displays where the G4 features QHD IPS Quantum display whereas the Galaxy S6 comes with Super AMOLED display. The screen resolution on both devices is the same, which gives the Galaxy S6 device an upper hand when it comes to quality of display.
Performance and storage
On paper, the Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphone is a lot powerful than the G4 with its 64-bit 8-core Exynos 7420 chipset compared to the LG G4’s 64-bit 6-core Snapdragon 808 processor, which is a little older as well. The Galaxy S6 has four of the eight cores clocked at 1.5GHz and the other four run at a speed of 2.1GHz. On the other hand, the LG G4’s hexa-core processor is clocked at 1.8GHz.
Both devices are very powerful on the RAM fronts as they both feature a RAM of 3GB, which is quite outstanding as far as multitasking is concerned. When talking of internal storage, the Galaxy S6 has opted for a fixed memory of 32, 64 and 128GB whereas the G4 has an internal memory of 32GB, which can be expanded using a microSD card of up to 128GB.
Both device manufacturers have stepped up their efforts in this section. Even though both devices have a rear camera of 16MP, the G4 has an amazing lens aperture of f/1.8 as opposed to the Galaxy S6’s f/1.9. The optical image stabilization on the G4 has also been improved when compared to the G3 as well as the Galaxy S6.
On the front of the Samsung Galaxy S6 there is a 5MP camera whereas the LG G4 features an amazing 8MP camera, which is same as that of the rear iPhone 6 snapper.
Samsung Galaxy S6 started selling a few weeks ago and at the moment, you can get this device for $600 for the 32GB model and the 128GB model could need as much as $800 to take it off from the shelves. The LG G4 on the other hand started selling just a few days ago and it is currently unavailable in the U.S and other European markets. However, it is expected to cost around $600 when it hits the U.S. markets.
