LG G3 Specs Features Vs. Galaxy S5: LG G3 and Samsung Galaxy S5 are stiff rivals since the former was released at the end of May. Witht the two South Korean smartphone makers well known for their reputation to manufacture exemplary flagship mobile phones, there is little wonder why there is so much competition between the two.
For those who wish to purchase either the LG G3 or the Galaxy S5, it’s a good idea to review the specs and features for the two devices:
First, display and dimension are the ‘big two’ when it comes to grabbing the consumer’s attention. The trend toward a bigger display brought about by the advent of the ‘smartphone’ and tablet, which might also be categorized as a ‘phablet.’ It is also a consumer driven form factor; consumers want bigger phones with smatphone use increasing and sometimes substituting for formal PC interaction. In addition to that, the Chinese market has exploded with clones, particularly the ‘iPhone clone’ which is a large sized, large display phone for a couple of hundred dollars.
Expanding on the discussion about the display on the LG G3 specs and features vs. the Galaxy S5, both of these phones have a protection layer composed of Gorilla Glass 3. Since smartphones now go for a hefty price, it makes sense to protect your display. It is also important to keep in mind Samsung has set the standard for displays because they are usually the first to market, advertise and respond to feedback on their smartphone delivery. The iPhone 6 will also have a significant contribution to makes with the use of sapphire glass in its display. For the most part, some of the improvements on the Samsung Galaxy S5 stems from the Note 3 and the Galaxy S4
The Samsung Galaxy S5 sports a 5.1ch AMOLED 1080×1920 res. display, while the LG G3 ships with a 5.5-inch True HD-IPS 1440×2560 res. display, similar to one of the two iPhone 6 editions with a release date this September. So, at the current time, the LG G3 touts the biggest display screen, an advantage that will catch the attention of smartphone watchers.
Both the LG G3 and Samsung Galaxy S5 have the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor chip and runs on the Android 4.4 KitKat OS with quad-core Krait 400 CPU clocking in at 2.5 GHz. While the Samsung Galaxy S5 falls short in memory with just 2GB RAM, the LG G3 offers a more substantial memory at 3 GB RAM.
With more or less the same specs for the OS and accompanying processes, you can expect the same performance from the LG G3 and the Samsung Galaxy S5. The LG G3 has a custom Android user interface and the Samsung Galaxy S5 is enabled with proprietary TouchWiz UI.
LG has its own version of iOS Siri. It may not be up to the mark as Window’s Cortana but ‘Smart Notice’ will remind users to make calls or not to forget your umbrella when the weather forecast calls for a rainy day.
The cameras on the LG G3 and the Samsung S5 allow for simultaneous High Def. video and image recording along with map tagging, face detection like the one on Google+. LG G3 is outfitted with 13-megapixel and 2.1-megapixel cameras for the rear and front. The laser autofocus is an exclusive feature on the LG G3 which enables high quality auto focusing. No other phone has this function.
Coming to disk space, LG’s G3 comes with 16 GB in internal storage and both phones are outfitted with expandable memory microSD card options up to 128 GB. Samsung’s Galaxy S5 comes in two editions with 16 or 32 GB of storage space.
The battery is also an important consideration with the LG G3 using a 3,000 Li-on mAh battery, and the Samsung Galaxy S5 consisting of a Li-on 2,800 mAh battery. This translates to a LG G3 battery life of 48 hours, while the Samsung Galaxy S5 doesn’t measure up as much with 36 hours of life.
