HTC 10 vs. LG G5 vs. Galaxy S7: Android Flagship Showdown
This April, HTC and LG both released new flagship phones to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, which came out in March. Each of us has different needs when it comes to smartphones, which is a great thing about the Android platform and its 'Be Together, Not the Same' campaign slogan. So which phone should you buy? I'd like to give you a brief comparison among HTC 10, LG G5 and Samsung Galaxy S7.
HTC 10 ($699) - For the Audiophile
You see the HTC 10 is a phone without a central innovation – or gimmick, depending on your point of view. That means it lacks waterproofing, an always-on display, a wide-angle camera, 3D Touch-like screen technology and any kind of concessions to modular build. Name a recent trick from the Samsung Galaxy S7, LG G5 or iPhone 6s and the chances are this competing device doesn’t offer an equivalent.
Nevertheless, it's still a great smartphone. The HTC is a 5.2 inch smartphone which recalls the unibody design of the series but refreshes the form factor with a chamfered edge that’s easy to grip and also scatters light in a very attractive way. No other manufacturer is producing phones that look like this, which continues to be a positive point amid a sea of similar looking handsets.
Speaking of audio, this is where the 10 really excels. With the HTC 10, those iconic BoomSound speakers are gone, leading to a face that's markedly different to the past three flagships. But all is not lost, because BoomSound has evolved into something new, called BoomSound Hi-Fi edition and it's still very much the BoomSound you know and love.
LG G5 ($688.99) - Totally Modular
Recently launched LG G5 Smartphone comes with 5.3 inch large IPS LCD display having 1440 X 2560 pixels resolution always-on display. This year LG has made some really innovative changes to their flagship with brining modular design, removable battery, magic slot and quality camera they are really verge of becoming best android smartphone of 2016.
Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge ($694.99, $779.99) - The Best Android Phone Till Now?
The Galaxy S7 is an evolution of the prior year's model, restoring design traits from the Galaxy S5 such as IP certification for water and dust resistance, as well as expandable storage. You also still get fast charging (now ubiquitous on Android flagships) and wireless charging.
Samsung Galaxy S7 comes with a 12 MP, f/1.7 camera sensors and 5 MP front camera. This looks like quite disappointing as 12 mega pixels is very less as many low end devices these days features comparatively 12-16 MP. But it's not like increasing pixels will help you to capture high quality images. The phone is going to have 12 Mega pixels f/1.7 aperture lens which offers large pixels and ability to capture high quality images even in low lights. The Galaxy S7 is capable of capturing 2160p@30fps, 1080p@60fps with dual Video and HDR which is exceptionally great.
