By looking at the spec table, we can easily recognize that all of them are powerful smartphones with 4GB RAM, Qualcomn Snapdragon 820 chips, Android Marshmallow OS, and Quad HD displays handsets. Besides, each of them also sports a fingerprint scanner, a single or dual SIM, 32GB ROM expandable up to 200GB (though, Galaxy S7 and HTC 10 offer you 64GB ROM option while LG G5 does not). So those are some essential similarities. How about differences? There may not be many, yet they will help decide which one is the strongest device here.

First of all, you can see that three machines all have pretty handy displays with very high ppi numbers. Nonetheless, Galaxy S7 is the one sporting the most beautiful screen thanks to measuring 5.1 inches with 2K resolution, 577 ppi, Super AMOLED panel, and “always-on display” mode. Moreover, in terms of battery, we also want to choose the S7 as the best here since it is capable of 3,000mAh and able to be charged very quickly despite not being equipped with the latest Quick Charge 3.0 tech.
