Galaxy S7 vs LG G5 vs Huawei Mate 8 [CHART]

Galaxy S7 vs LG G5 vs Huawei Mate 8 [CHART]

Hey guys, after the launch of the Samsung S7 and the LG G5 last night, we thought it would be fun to compare them with Huawei’s new beast the Mate 8. All three are neck to neck in terms of raw power. Some features like Always-on display are available for Samsung and LG’s flagship but not Huawei. Then on the other hand, the Huawei Mate 8 has a massive 4000 mAh battery a compared to the 3000 and 2800 mAh found in the S7 and the G5 respectively. One interesting thing though, is that LG have revamped their UI completely, meaning no more app drawer. Something which Huawei is doing for quite a while now. Samsung has apparently also jumped on the same band wagon, and given an option to remove the app drawer. This is supporting the rumors that the Android N will not have an app drawer. (Yay or Nay?)    Talking about the camera, the Samsung Galaxy S7 has a 12 MP shooter but with the first ever Dual Pixel setup for brighter low light imaging and the Huawei Mate 8 has a 16MP shooter with OIS. This is where the LG G5 has set itself apart from the competition with a dual camera setup a 16MP standard lens and an 8MP wide angle lens for a much wider viewing angle and better depth immersion. On paper, the Samsung S7 and the LG G5 have much better display’s but having a lower resolution display normally dose mean better battery management. All three devices come with fast charging and microSD card slots. Well, that’s about it from our part. Which one is your favorite? Do let us...
