LG G4 vs Samsung Galaxy S6

By admin | Published June 30th, 2015

The LG G4 may be slightly larger than the Samsung Galaxy S6, but both smartphones were released in a relatively similar time span and they’re the very best Samsung and LG have to offer at the time of writing. We’ll be taking a look at what things make the LG G4 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 tick so that we can make a comparison of the two.

Build Quality

Both the LG G4 and the Galaxy S6 have a nice design, but they offer two different approaches - you have to have a certain taste to prefer one smartphone design over the other.

Before we talk about the general appearance, it’s important to note that both smartphones have been built incredibly well, and there are no complaints to be made about the actual quality of each build.

The Galaxy S6 offers a sleeker, more minimalist design that’s perhaps more in tune with many other ‘smart’ gadgets and software that has been developed over the last couple of years. The LG G4 on the other hand feels more colorful, vibrant and has a more personal feel to it - it has a quirky style you get more attached to.

With that being said, the S6 is certainly the more ergonomic choice - it fits better in your hand, has an overall sleeker design and for that reason we have to give credit where credit is due.

Display

The LG G4 display is claimed to be top of it’s class. It’s big and it pushes a lot of pixels, that’s for sure, but real world tests show that the Galaxy S6 display is far superior. The 577 ppi on the Galaxy S6 is higher than the 538 ppi on the LG G4, but this is not where the Galaxy S6 display gets its merits.  To get unlocked your LG G4 please click here.

The Galaxy S6 display can go brighter, and it’s minimum brightness is also on par with the LG G4, which is great considering the G4 display has one of the lowest minimum brightness ratings this year. The trouble is, the contrast on the S6 is completely out of this world, and it’s color temperature it’s absolutely amazing.

The LG G4 on the other hand is a little lacking in this area.

Interface

Both the TouchWiz UX and the LG UX now feature a very clear Material Design inspiration, so both interfaces have never been so in-line with each other.

With that being said, both do have their own qualities, and it’s clear which ones stand out the most.

Samsung has finally slimmed down the bloated TouchWiz UX with the Galaxy S6, and it now feels as minimal as it needs to be to be easy to navigate and operate.

There are still many great features baked into the TouchWiz pie, but a clean, user friendly experience is clearly Samsung’s main priority this time round. Learn here how to unlock your Samsung Galaxy S6 phone!

The LG user interface feels a lot flatter than TouchWiz and perhaps even closer to the stock Material Design Google has offered to the world. There are certain features like Knock Code on the LG that make it unique, but there are other features on the S6 that make TouchWiz unique.

Performance

There’s no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy S6 has the better set up. Even if the LG G4 had the more powerful Snapdragon 810 as opposed to the 808, the S6 would still be in the winning position.

The Galaxy S6 is powered by Samsung’s home brewed Exynos 7420 processor alongside a Mali-T760 GPU. In benchmarks, the S6 comes out on top 9 times out of 10, but the LG G4 isn’t too far behind. Both handsets will offer good performance, but the S6 is better.

Summary

If you were to make a choice between the LG G4 and the Galaxy S6 you have to look at the following attributes. The S6 has a sleeker build, it has a better quality display, and it’s UX is minimal, but feature packed.

The LG G4 has a less minimal design and interface, but it still has lots of features, including hardware features like the microSD slot and removable battery. The LG G4 also has a larger display.
