So you're an Android person, and you're hunting for your next phone. The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge obviously have the market edge with big sales and a stunning new redesign. But LG surprised the world with the very good LG G3 last year--a big screen phone that didn't feel that big in hand or pocket. This year's LG G4 is even better with a brighter and more vivid IPS Quantum display and a slimmer curved design. It's even available with premium materials like leather and ceramic, so it doesn't lose points against the classy all-glass Galaxy S6 models. If you're in the market for a larger display smartphone that isn't phablet huge, the 5.5" LG G4 gives you more screen real estate than the 5.1" Samsung Galaxy S6, though both have the same QHD 2560 x 1440 resolution.
Inside, there are quite a few similarities: fast multi-core CPUs with capable graphics, 4G LTE, dual band WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth, NFC, GPS and even IR blasters for AV remote control. Both have 16 megapixel rear cameras with the LG G4 having the slightly faster lens (f/1.8 vs. f/1.9), laser autofocus and a new color fidelity engine. Both can shoot 4K video and offer simple and advanced modes for shooting. The LG has a higher resolution front camera, but honestly both are quite good. As you might guess, the octa-core Exynos 2.1 GHz CPU in the Samsung benchmarks faster than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8080 hexa-core CPU in the LG. But honestly, both are quite fast.
There are quite a few points to cover, so watch our LG G4 vs. Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Comparison Smackdown video.
