LG G4 vs Samsung Galaxy S6: comparing the flagships (Video)

You’ve seen what the just-launched LG G4 looks like when compared to last year’s G3, but what about a modern flagship? After all, when shoppers head out to stores later this spring, they won’t be weight the G4 against the phone it’s replacing in LG’s lineup, but against other flagships from different Android manufacturers. And top at many of smartphone shoppers’ lists is going to be Samsung with its Galaxy S6. At LG’s launch event for the G4, we brought along just such a GS6 to give you a quick look at just how these two top-shelf smartphones compare.

Both companies made some start choices in updating their flagship lines for 2015, but are these two phones created equal? Neither LG nor Samsung went with the presumptive SoC to beat for their handsets, eschewing the Snapdragon 810 for the 808 and Samsung’s own Exynos 7420, respectively. The handsets use different display tech, make different choices for camera hardware, and placed different emphasis on how they modernized their custom Android skins.

We don’t get the chance to go too in-depth with this early look (and you’ll want to wait for our proper G4 review before you draw your own conclusions), but for an initial hands-on comparison, check out our video below:
