LG has released its V10 handset in October 2015, and Samsung has just brought its Galaxy S7 Edge device, which came with some impressive specifications. We’re going to compare these two handsets and let you decide which one you would buy.
The LG V10 measures 159.6×79.3×8.6mm and weights 192 grams. It has a rugged design, a back with a bumpy texture for a better grip, and the sides are protected with a metal frame. On the other hand, the Galaxy S7 Edge is slimmer and lighter, as it measures 150.9×72.6×7.7mm and weights 157 grams, but it has a premium design, inherited from its predecessor, so its back is made of glossy glass, but it’s very fragile, and you should be very careful not to drop the phone on the ground. Both devices have a fingerprint scanner, but while LG has placed it below the rear camera, Samsung has integrated it into the home button.
The LG V10 features an IPS LCD display of 5.7-inch that supports a resolution 2560×1440 pixels at 515 ppi and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. On top of it there’s a secondary screen with a diagonal of 2.1-inch and a resolution of 160 x 1040 pixels, where are shown the most used applications, the clock, weather etc. The Galaxy S7 Edge has a smaller Super AMOLED display of 2560×1440 pixels at 534 ppi and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4.
