We compared the two flagship smartphones with powerful components and good cameras. Before you list 10 HTC and LG G5.
10 HTC or LG G5? Which of these two phones is a better device? To answer this question there is no alternative – we need both vessels set in opposite corners and duel divided into rounds determine the winner. Who will win? Will it be a victory on points or by knock out? See for yourself.
Appearance, casing and fingerprint scanner
Both phones represent a similar thought stylistic – designers put on simplicity, elegance and aluminum execution. The effects of these theoretically close vision, however, surprisingly different. HTC refers to its predecessors, but also draws extensively on the iPhone. This is a very successful fusion of classic style with modern taiwańskiego smaczkami. In my opinion this is one of the most beautiful phone we can now get on the market. LG G5 does not resemble neither LG G4, or any other model. Despite this, it is only correct, little charakterny smartphone that does not call attention. So it is 1: 0 for HTC.workmanship? Here, LG had a more difficult task, because the design of the G5 is disassembled, and thus much more difficult to maintain an ideal body uniformity. Matching items is good, but the place to connect the module to the rest of the housing is visible chink and after several wyciągnięciach it can feel a little play. In practice, this is what determines the next victory HTC, which was made with perfect attention to detail, and his body is a model when it comes to quality. 2: 0. In terms of ergonomics and ease of use phones just fall out. LG slightly better handling for easier and operated with one hand. Speaks in favor of HTC, in turn, slightly more convenient placement of fingerprint scanner and practical shaping the power button. The arrangement of terminals is the same. In this round, so we have a draw. Remisowo would rate as biometric sensors, which, despite extremely different locating, both phones exercise perfectly and are very comfortable in use. To conclude this chapter, HTC won 4 to 2.
HTC – diagonal display of 5.2 inches, the LG screen with 0.1 "bigger. Both made with IPS technology, and both with a resolution of 2560 x 1440. In individual tests, praising both one and the other unit, but with more direct comparison falls however, this HTC. Why? it is all about color reproduction, which at the representative from Taiwan are cleaner and more natural.Regarding the scope to adjust the brightness and visibility in difficult conditions, displays fall similar, but with a minimum advantage of LG. G5 is two times less brightness minimum, a slightly higher maximum and strong sunlight effectively intervenes system changes the contrast . Touch panels evaluate the same – both are perfectly sensitive. In this category, so we have a draw 1: 1.

Both HTC and LG are promoting their flagship this year as the best smartphones on the photographic market. 10 boasts a 12-megapixel with unusually large individual pixels (ultrapikselami), optics f / 1.8 zoom lens and optical image stabilization. LG, in turn, offers up two main devices: one with a 16-megapixel f / 1.8 sensor and Sony, and the second wide array of 8 megapixels. Both have optical stabilization.technicalities, technikaliami – the most important is still how cameras exercise in practice. At the outset it should be noted that both represent the highest shelf mobile photography. In this direct duel better it falls but LG. And it's not just about additional camera – in my opinion is a gadget that is rarely useful. Context of the broader quality images both day and night. In good light HTC little tweaks colors, especially greens. The colors of frames LG definitely better image of reality. Image detail is similar – here would put an equal sign. It is also similar tonal range and detail. The advantage of the Korean technological thinking is growing along with the deterioration of the lighting conditions. At night HTC smears points of light and detail seems to be slightly higher in G5. What about the video? Here heavily emerge favorite. Both phones record video in 4K at 30 fps. and in both cases, the material is very good quality. In none of the telephones you can not also have objections to the quality of recorded sound. As for the front camera, this, in turn, is governed by HTC. As I mentioned in a full review of this phone it is one of the best units selfie market. Although it is only 5 megapixels, thanks to the f / 1.8, and optical image stabilization ensures excellent quality images and video (up to 1080p at 30 fps.).
Both outfits were used exactly the same chipset, which Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 with Kryo four cores clocked at 2.2 GHz. The same processor also renders graphics (Adreno 530), and the same is RAM. can analyze small differences in individual benchmarks, but realistically practical performance is at exactly the same level – is the highest of possible. In none of the phone there is also a problem with the culture of work.[wptab style = "4" title = "PC Mark Android"] [test slug = "PCMark-android" product_id = "21,582.21630"] [/ wptab] [wptab style = "4" title = "AnTuTu 6 "] [test slug =" android-antutu-6 "product_id =" 21,582.21630 "] [/ wptab] [wptab style =" 4 "title =" Geekbench 3 "] [test slug =" Geekbench-3 "virtual = "Geekbench 3-single-core Geekbench 3-multi-core" product_id = "21,582.21630"] [/ wptab] [wptab style = "4" title = "3DMark"] [test slug = "3dmark" virtual="3dmark-ice-storm-unlimited-total,3dmark-ice-storm-unlimited-graphics,3dmark-ice-storm-unlimited-physics" product_id = "21,582.21630"] [/ wptab] [wptab_end]
System and interface
As befits a flagship, HTC and LG 10 G5 are controlled by the latest Android 6.0.1., Which is covered-producing interfaces. In the case of HTC Sense it is 8 and LG UX 5.0.overlay Which is better? According to me, without a doubt, the new HTC Sense. Firstly, it looks a lot nicer, less colorful, more professional. Secondly, a more practical, in my opinion, the system of classic application menu. Finally, it seems to work slightly faster than the interface LG. Of course, the assessment of the overlay is largely a matter of taste and may also be that there are users which Korean vision system environment will like more.
In terms of hardware HTC LG is superior in terms of battery because it has a battery with 200 mAh higher. On the other hand, LG battery can be removed and replaced. In practice, do not feel much difference in performance between the phones. As for the synthetic benchmarks, the HTC comes out better in PCMarku, but it Geekbench 3.0 points already minimal advantage LG. It is worth mentioning that both devices support the technology, Quick Charge, so you can charge them at express pace. Batteries judge so similar and the comparison put an equal sign between phones.

Speakers and sound quality
In this category, the winner is rather obvious. HTC is without a doubt one of the best music devices on the market, and LG represents a rather standard sound quality from both the speaker and headphones. HTC 10 wins by the presence of two great external speakers and headphones Hi-Res included.
Connectivity, GPS, memory
In terms of connectivity, both phones present themselves similarly, are equipped with dual-band WiFi and modules for fast and precise GPS modules.Both smartphones have the same amount of memory (32 GB) and more or less the same, because about 25 GB is available to the user. Both LG G5 and HTC 10 also have the function of USB OTG allows them to connect to external flash memory or input devices.
Summing up, knock oucie no way. Here you can only talk about small win on points. If for each trait predominant would post better phone a point, as in the chapter on housing, my comparison wins HTC 10. Taiwan's flagship won already two points clear at the occasion of the case, in terms of the camera makes up for LG, but the decisive turns out to overlay and music features. The winner is then HTC, LG but is also a very cool phone, which I would recommend above all fans of mobile photography.
