Both the LG G3 and Samsung Galaxy S5 have been released in 2014, but in different months. Even if two years have passed since these devices have been launched, we can say that they’re still very popular because they have some good specifications that attract many buyers. If you’re undecided which phone to buy, check out this comparison and see which devices suits your needs better.
The LG G3 measures 146.3×74.6×8.9mm and weights 149 grams. It has a faux metal back and a floating arc design, just like its predecessor. However, the physical buttons – Volume and Power, have been placed under the rear camera, but you can easily reach them. On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy S5 measures 142×72.5×8.1mm and weights 145 grams. Its design is a bit disappointing, because the back has an ugly dotted pattern and the shell is made of plastic.
The LG G3 features a true HD-IPS display of 5.5-inch that supports a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The Samsung Galaxy S5 has a super AMOLED display of 5.1-inch that supports a lower resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 432 ppi and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
