Two South Korean tech giants, LG and Samsung, have launched their flagship smartphones and are up against one another to prove their supremacy. As Samsung has a greater presence in the market, it is expected that its product will get greater mileage - it has almost been a month since Galaxy S5 has been available in the market. LG G3 has been launched recently in just six cities across the world and will take some time to be available worldwide. Latest Android smartphones are flying off the shelves and LG’s flagship device is certainly going to give serious competition to Galaxy S5.
Check out the pros and cons of Samsung Galaxy S5 and LG G3:
Design and Display
Both the smartphones are made up of plastic but G3 comes with a metallic skin, which gives it a sophisticated look. Galaxy S5, on the other hand, has perforated texture of faux leather, which gives it a better grip. LG mobile has a floating arc design, where the arc is based upon ideal radius, which in turn aids in holding the phone comfortably. Display size of the phone is 5.5-inch with thin bezel, making the screen look bigger than other high-end smartphones. G3 has simple and flat graphics, mature feeling colors, and Circle Graphic Motif. There are no keys on the side but a key at the back has been retained and enlarged, thus meeting the style with substance. One of the most welcoming changes in Samsung Galaxy S5 is the shift from the usual glossy plastic to polycarbonate perforated back. It also looks good but if we have to give a verdict, LG is slightly ahead of its peer.
While Samsung Galaxy S5 has 5.1-inch display, LG G3 comes with a 5.5-inch one. The latter handset makes better use of space in the front than the former one. Though both have narrow bezels, G3 has far less bezel than S5, both at the top and bottom of screen. While virtual buttons occupy a little bit of display screen at the LG smartphone, navigation keys in S5 sit below the screen. Therefore, in Samsung mobile, the entire screen is free for content and apps. LG G3 is slightly bigger in size and heavier with dimensions of 146.3mm x 74.6mm x 8.9mm and 149gms weight in comparison to 142mm x 72.5mm x 8.1mm size and 145gms weight of Samsung Galaxy S5.
