Sprint Product Ambassador: LG G3 vs. Galaxy S5 Sport



The two devices that I am currently using are the G3 and the Galaxy S5 Sport. Both are very powerful phones with awesome specs but they are both different in a lot of ways. Here are how they compare in the categories that matter most in my life:

Design -  Both the G3 and S5 Sport are made out of plastic. That makes both of these phones very light to hold but they also feel very solid in the hand. The G3 is in the Shine Gold color which is an exclusive to Sprint. The back of the phone looks like metal but feels like plastic. The power and volume buttons are in the middle of the phone on the back side. This is carried over from the G2 and G Flex. The S5 Sport is in Cherry Red and has a grippy rubberized back. This makes it very easy to hold the phone and comfortable to use it for a long period of time. The volume and power buttons are on the side like most traditional layouts. The S5 is 5.1” and the G3 is 5.5” but they actually are very similar in size thanks to the minimal bezels on the G3.

Display – The display on both phones are amazing. The Galaxy S5 Sport has a beautiful 5.1” Super AMOLED display that shows off bright colors and has the look that you are used to with Samsung. The G3 has an amazing 5.5” QHD display that is really crisp and is truly a one of a kind screen. Both look awesome while watching videos and surfing the web. The G3 preloads some great videos that shows off the power of its display.

Camera -  The G3 has a great new feature called laser focus. This allows you to focus quickly on a subject when you are going to take a picture. It works as well in real life as it does on their commercials. The G3 comes with a 13MP rear camera and the S5 Sport has a 16MP camera. The Sport comes with a ton of options to choose from and creates crisp and bright photos. Both cameras are top of the line and you can’t go wrong with either of them!

When picking between the two phones it all comes down to personal taste. The phones are both top of the class in specs and real life use. The cameras are great and the customizations on each of the phones is top notch. My personal preference is the G3 because of the button placement and amazing screen. LG has come a long way and can now be considered one of the top Android phone manufactures!
