The cellular giants are trying their best to throw the coolest handset in the market. Ever since the smart phones took over there has been a constant battle between the cellular companies about who is going to produce the best phone. The year 2014 has been no different with Samsung and LG releasing their flagship phones out in the market. The battle now is between Samsung Galaxy S5 and LG G3. Which android device is better? Let’s find out.When it comes to the design, clearly LG g3 looks like a bigger phone than the Samsung Galaxy S5. It is a bit taller and wider than its rival Samsung. However, the difference between the two is not a substantial one. Moving on to how both devices feel in the hands, Samsungs has gone for matte plastic with a dimpled texture, honestly it does feel great in hands. However, LG has chosen high-grade polycarbonate for its device with a brushed metal skin. Even though the material gives a feel of plastic more than metal yet it feels great in hands and one can say that the LG out did Samsung in this department.Moving on to display, The Samsung has put 5.1-inch super AMOLED display in its device, which is very sharp and clear with immaculate quality, amazing colors and a perfect display along with good contrast. The sharpness with a full HD 1080p display at 432 pixels per inch is pretty spotless. However, for a lot more sharper and bigger display LG is the device to go for as it offers 5.5 inch IPS LCD which packs a QHD resolution at 534 ppi. The device is not only sharp but the colors are just extraordinary and seem very natural.Moving on to a bit more technical stuff, both LG and Samsung are pretty much riding the same boat when assessing the processing power as both the devices carry Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 quad-core chip clocked at 2.5GHz, along with Adreno 330 graphics processor (GPU). This is pretty standard in all the latest android devices out there.As far as the storage is concern, both devices offer 32 GB storage along with a microSD card support for up to 128 GB.The camera in Samsung Galaxy S5 has a bit of new features added to it with Samsungs latest ISOCELL technology -a 1/2.6” back-illuminated sensor (BSI) with an f/2.2 aperture and rated at 16 mega pixels. The video capture of the device supports 1080p and 4 k and has an LED Flash. Whereas, LG has added a bunch loads of feature competing against the lumias.The LG G3 contains a 13-megapixels BSI sensor with a dual-LED flash and 4K/1080p video capture. Not to forget the optical image stabilization (OIS) with laser autofocus which means that the amount of time it takes to focus for a shot is quicker than the blink of an eye.While choosing what phone to buy, it entirely depends on what your preferences are... LG has certainly outdone Samsung in some departments but both devices are still pretty close to each other.
