First Click: LG G5, Samsung Galaxy S7, or S7 Edge?

March 4th, 2016

27

Excited about the new LG G5 (and Friends) and Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge? Yeah, us too. By now you’ve probably seen all the specs, read all the hands-on articles, and seen the side-by-side comparisons. It’s going to be a tough choice.

Buy the G5 in April and you’ll get what's shaping up to be the best phone LG’s ever made and one that can be made even better through its plug-in Friends modules. The first Friends include a Cam Plus camera grip with extended battery, and the Hi-Fi Plus 32-bit DAC and amplifier combo. LG promises more if the G5’s a success.

Or you can take home an S7 or S7 Edge on all four major US carriers starting March 11th and Samsung will throw in a free Gear VR. Both phones feature an always-on display and the new Edge benefits from a couple of new edge-swipe enhancements.

All that’s left are the pricing details as well as the professional reviews — which is to say there’s a lot we still don’t know.

But hey, given what you already know, what phone do you most crave?
