Samsung Note 5 vs LG V10

itsmehere07 364 99 November 20, 2015 at 07:44 AM
Friends, I am looking for a new phone for Tmobile. There is a good deal at Costco for Note 5 with $250 costco cash card back. I am in little confusion that should i go with note 5 or not as it has not SD card slot and no removable battery. Other phone i see with good spec is LG V10.

If anyone of you have bought either of the phone and post your personal feedback about the device, it will be much appreciated. Also please recommend which one is better.

I know this is not a deal but i was not sure where to post this question. Mod please feel free to move it to proper thread.

Thanks in advance.

They have $250 cash card with only Note 5 and not with v10 so i am in confusion that should i pull trigger on Note 5 or wait for a another deal with LG v10.

so you see where you posted this in the hot deals thread? you see how this instance is not a hot deal like everything else you see listed in this section. do you understand that you are trying to ask a question or have a DISCUSSION about which one to get. Do you see that there are sections marked DISCUSSION? Do you see the TD's you're getting? Do you think you can figure the rest out from here?

Here's comparison:

http://www.androidheadlines.com/2...g-v10.html

Summary
This was really a tough one to pick, as these devices are very close in specifications, but with all things considered, I picked the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 as the winner of this comparison. The Note 5 has a superior Super AMOLED display, a faster processor with 14nm technology, faster RAM and flash memory, equal main camera area, PayPal certified and Samsung Pay fingerprint sensor. It has a built-in heart and oxygen saturation sensors and has both a quick charge battery and built-in wireless quick charge. The LG V10 does offer room for additional external memory, has the dual FFC setup and does incorporate a removable battery.

When it comes to leveraging their beautiful displays – the Note 5 sports an S-Pen that utilizes the display for a number of purposes and there are many apps that were developed specifically for the Note 5's stylus – it really does make the Note 5 stand out from the other phablets, but many users rarely utilize its many capabilities. LG V10 took a different approach – almost a Galaxy S6 Edge approach – only LG put a separate display at the upper part of the screen for alerts, app shortcuts, weather, etc. LG claims it is not actually a discrete panel, but simply an extension of the main panel with its own special backlight. Which display type you would utilize more is something only you can answer.

Specification-wise and the technical edge would definitely go to the Galaxy Note 5 – 14nm processor, DDR4 RAM, UFS2.0 flash memory and quick wireless charging. But a couple of beloved features are on the LG V10 – expandable memory and removable battery – that are no longer on the Note 5. If you think you will use the S-Pen and many features the Note 5 offers it is definitely a solid device, but if you cannot live without the removable battery and expandable memory, then the LG V10 is your device.
