Since the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 had just recently experienced a major upgrade in 2015, results were astonishing. Some like it, while others don’t. And if we were to compare it with LG’s latest V10, would there be a clear winner in this battle?
The folks from Android Authority thinks that these two are the best smartphones available in the market right now (iPhone 6S Plus? Anybody home?) so we think it’s a great time to list out the resulting comparison based on our findings.
When it comes to design, both the Note 5 and LG V10 have very contrasting designs; the former’s more of a premium-looking smartphone while the latter prioritizes more of functionality than looks. It’s sort of like beauty and the beast but not really to that extent, the V10’s gorgeous in its own ways too. The Note 5 comes with an ultra-thin bezel, allowing for easy handling but could also be slippery at times, whereas the V10’s metal casing renders a much more stronger grip when held.
They are both proud of their large 5.7-inch screen size that’s big and beautiful, but it’s the Note 5 that takes the upper hand in this category. The Note 5’s super AMOLED technology provides a more vibrant display while the V10 only features an IPS LCD panel for its phone. You’re gonna have to give the Note 5 a go here for it has a more saturated look compared to the one on the LG V10.
Last but not least, we take a look into the performance of both smartphones. The Galaxy Note 5 is packed with an octa-core Exynos 7420 processor set up at 2.1GHz, while the LG V10 is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor clocked at 1.82GHz. Surprisingly, both of them actually can perform relatively well, just that Note 5’s frame rates and load times are slightly better than the LG V10.
You will pretty much know which smartphone has emerged as the winner here, don’t you? What are your thoughts between these two devices?
