HTC 10 vs LG G5 spec shootout: The battle of the metal flagships

by Jacob Kleinman | April 12, 2016April 12, 2016 4:00 pm PST

The LG G5 is a powerful Android smartphone with a clever trick: modularity. But is that enough to beat back the just-announced HTC 10? Let’s take a closer look to find out.

The LG G5 offers a slightly larger 5.3-inch Quad HD display, compared to the HTC 10’s 5.2-inch Quad HD display. Both devices also pack 4GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage, but HTC will also sell a 64GB version in some regions. There are some pretty big differences between the phones once you start to dive deeper into the specs, particularly when it comes to the cameras and the design.
