LG and Samsung are have being rivals for as long we have known both companies, they are rivals both at home in South Korea and internationally. Statistics have consistently shown Samsung is leading the competition between LG as well as other Android manufacturers. Despite this fact LG has not relented in trying to take over the smartphone market from Samsung and they bent on doing this even it means taking direct jibes at Samsung.
Both companies recently launched their much anticipated flagships for 2016, LG launched the LG G5, a revolutionary device considering the marked change from its predecessors, while Samsung launched the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, evolutionary devices – did not have much change from its predecessors. The Tech blogosphere have being comparing these two phones since the day they both launched, 21 February to be specific. But it seems LG wants to do the comparison themselves – if you want a job done to satisfaction, you do it yourself.
LG released a picture stacking LG’s G5 against the Samsung Galaxy S7 based on noteworthy specs. Well, you should be able to guess what the result was, Samsung’s Galaxy S7 came up short in five categories. Although, Samsung’s Galaxy S7 had one feature that the LG G5 does not have, which water and dust resistance.
The competition between Samsung and LG is reaching fever pitch, no one is giving each other a breathing space. LG is obviously the underdog here, who are still proving themselves. Pre-order for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge has already began, this will definitely affect LG’s sale of the G5 as consumers who are unable to wait for the device might opt for one of the Galaxy devices.
We sure haven’t seen the last of these two tech giants taking shots at each other. Stay tuned to AndroidNigeria for more news from the tech company brawling pit and other Android news.
