Best Android Smartphone: Samsung Galaxy S7 vs. LG G5 vs. Sony Xperia X

Filed under
Android

The Samsung is going on sale for $800 in March, and while Sony and LG are yet to announce their prices, you can expect them to be in that ballpark.

It’s safe to say that all three phones currently represent the best of what Android has to offer. It also wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to say each of the phones would come out favorably in a head-to-head against the best of what Apple has to offer—the five-month-old iPhone 6S.

Each has its individual merits, though in terms of both outstanding specs and originality it’s hard to look past the LG G5. Smartphones these days are getting more and more the same—you only have to look at the Samsung Galaxy S7 alongside the iPhone 6S to see this.
