    Which one is fast between LG G4 and Samsung S6 ?

    Please excuse me if I decline to know that. There are many aspects to a phone, and isolating one doesn't necessarily mean anything worthwhile. Speed may also result in excessive heat, for example.

    But someone here probably will know the answer.

    Fastest? You probably mean which is more responsive with minimal lag. That will depend on carriers since they add bloatware to the devices. Since the G4 isn't out in our country yet, no American can tell you what they think, because we just don't know yet.

    Maybe someone will chime in that has a LG G4 "World" phone and they can put it against a Sammy S6 "World" phone so that you can have an apples to apples comparison. Just wanted to give you an FYI that you don't want to compare a current G4 to an AT&T/Verizon/Sprint/T-Mobile G6.

    The S6 (810) does seem to heat up when pushed. Not sure about the G4 (808) as far as heat....

    Theoretically, the S6 would be faster, if talking about processing ability. However, most users probably won't see a difference between the two SoC, unless doing something really straining the phone, but even then most SoC can handle the heaviest load fairly easily.

    on paper, the S6. in real world use, you probably won't notice a difference

    This^^^^, normal everyday use the performance is identical for all intents and purposes, the only time I've seen noticeable performance difference is playing graphic intensive games.

    Speed will vary from device to device as well. OP, you may have more or less apps running, bloat, etc. But I doubt you could tell a difference. Lag, yes but the G4 will require a real world review.

    If you are looking for benchmarks, they really don't mean a great deal except for some hard core gamers and people who like to brag how fast their phone is but mostly never have a real need to push it to the max.

    The 808 chipset in the g4 is optimized for it and in real life is all that is going to matter for your day to needs.

    If you are looking for bragging rights in benchmarks the s6 is faster..... But in the real world this phone will be more fluid and do everything you could want

    I would say if I had to throw something out there I would say the lg. only reason why is I feel that LG's overlay seems to not be as heavy as Touchwiz.. again with what everyone is saying you probably wont see a difference because they're both super fast.

    I imagine the G4 will be quicker and smoother with no lag wiz to slow it down. But at this point it's just a guess

    Let's be honest, is it really that much of a difference. Can one even tell? I can't, say between the G3 and Note 4.

    These are two power houses it's not like we're comparing a Civic Si vs Audi S4.

    I tend to agree with the rest. I think most benchmarks suggest the S6 is faster, but in looking at the complete user experience in real world terms, I highly doubt anyone is going to regret the purchase or really notice the difference. I spent a long time on Windows Phone and no matter what your opinion of the platform (not looking for a fight) the fact is that it was more "fluid" with less lag on inferior hardware. I think specs can be overrated. I guess I kind of BELIEVE (or want to) the excuse / hype that the 808 is matched for the G4.

    Same here. I go further and think it will be better.

    I'm an American. I live in Korea right now and my LG G4 is my daily driver. I can tell you it's fast. Lag is not there. It's faster then my note 4 was on AT&T with 5.0 and its faster (not by much) then my wife's note 4 that has a snapdragon 810 in it and 5.0.1. I sat in Starbucks with a nice Korean the other day and we compared his S6 to my G4. Same carrier (Kt) and the G4 was ever so slightly faster. Both phones are instant. The S6 Was much faster shot to shot time when taking HDR or Regular pictures in Auto mode and about the same speed when taking non HDR pics. Bringing the camera up from the shortcut was almost instant on both phones with the screens off.

    Since when does the S6 have the 810?

    My G4 hasn't heated up ever playing any games like my G3 has. Even streaming 1440p video for 30 mins doesn't phase it one bit. The only time I have ever felt it even get slightly warm and chew some extra percentage battery was when I have been editing some digital RAW photos with Adobe. (I'm sure it uploads them here compressed and crappy but here's a few I edited tonight.)

    Edit : here's a Flickr url with an album. https://flic.kr/s/aHskbqdCr3

    Wow nice pics. I am so glad the G4 doesn't heat up as much as the G3. I am so sick of my pocket heating up from my G3 and I noticed on the S6 demo, when pushed, the S6 gets quite hot too.

    Nope. It's got a Exynos (Which I think is Sammy's own processor company, or a sub of Sammy) 7420 which is a 1.5 Octacore which is supposed to benchmark faster than the M9's 810. Some have said it's got heat issues just like the 810, so maybe that's why the person thought it had an 810.

    If you want a bigger screen go for the G4. If you want something stylish and relatively compact/normal - S6.
    I have a Note 3 and am eager to hear early reports of the G4.


    Surely they will all be faster when new.
    For me, "speed" doesn't come in to my equation.
    My Note 3 with carrier free Touchwiz is fast enough for me now.

    I just want a newer experience with an even better screen, future proofing and Lollipop friendly.
    Sure I would consider the power of available flagship SoC's, and a decent amount of ram, to cater comfortably for ever hungrier apps and net speeds. As long as it doesn't freeze occasionally, transition speeds don't bother me ... at the moment ...

    Windows Phone is a great example. Fast, fluid, smooth as can be. Good battery life too. It's just a pity that they haven't been able to get the developer support to make it a contender. Not that I'd switch from Android, but it'd still be nice to have a third big mobile OS to help drive everything forward. In any case, back OT - it's all about optimization of the software for the hardware. From everything we've heard, LG has done a good job with that this time around. Let's just hope it proves to have the legs to go the distance.
