Samsung Galaxy S6 vs LG G4 vs HTC One M9 : Battle of the best

In this post, we are going to compare the best guys in town and we are pretty sure you all know who they are – Samsung’s S6, HTC’s One M9 and the latest LG’s G4. They are the best in-class android smartphone that anyone can buy in the world. We are pretty sure that all of us wants to know the king of them all. The device which is best of best, which is the coolest of all, Carries the best specifications, has the best camera and gets smooth updates.

But when it comes to finding the best out of many- it’s difficult. People tend to have different choices and expectations, for example there are people who are willing to give up battery for Ultimate Performance or people who just need the best smartphone camera. So here the choices are difficult and confusing. For this problem we will compare the major features and tell you (in specifications) who perform better. Please note that our analysis here is based on paper specifications of the device and not on the real world analysis, as the G4 has just launched we can’t comment on the real life performance.



Is the biggest judgment here- with OIS, Laser Autofocus-Phase Detection, Dual LED Flash, f-number- f/1.8 & f/1.9 and many other variables such as sensor size and many others will affect your decision. Lower f-number indicate more light can come in and helps it to be sharper. Samsung has f/1.9 and the LG has it at f/1.8- the choices are not very clear here as both are on the same scale (negligible difference) but this also means that you will get a better low light photography with G4 then the S6.



is more on the LG side with Official Quick charge support and a 3000mAh battery.



It’s debatable, with HTC going out of question with FHD resolution- Samsung and LG both have QHD 2560 x 1440px but with different screen sizes, Samsung has a 5.1 inch and LG has 5.5 inch. With changes in screen sizes their densities changes to 557ppi and 538ppi respectively. Who wins here will depend upon the user, if the user wants a standard 5 incher or a bigger and less-compact

Processing Power


Processing power is nothing to worry with the three, Samsung has its own in-house manufacturing Exynos 7420 – 14nm processed chipset capable of 70k Antutu whereas HTC goes for Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 and LG opts for Qualcomm Snapdragon 808. Samsung will win this fight due to higher benchmarking scores. Please note that not every application has the coding and capability to use the device at its fullest- like benchmarking apps do so it would not really affect the real life performance in day to day activities and applications.
