Korean electronics giants Samsung and LG compete in just about every area in which they operate. In the smartphone space, though, Samsung’s Android-powered lineup remains top dog. Not only is it the world’s top handset manufacturer, but it’s Galaxy range, headed by the Galaxy S5, also represents the most familiar face of Android in the eyes of consumers. LG has had a comparatively shaky start in the smartphone world, but in past week it’s finally brought its most compelling handset yet, the LG G3 to the U.S. market.
With eye-catching specs like a 5.5-inch “quad HD” display and an impressive optically-stabilized camera, the LG G3 represents one of the more credible challengers to the incumbent Samsung. But the GS5 itself is Samsung’s strongest flagship yet — the manufacturer’s first proper water-resistant flagship, with a built-in heart rate monitor and biometric security to boot. We’ve had both devices in our hands for some time now, so it’s time to put them head to head and see how they compare.
We’re more than halfway through July, which means we’re more than halfway through the year 2104. We’ve seen some amazeball new phones from all the big names, and sales predictions and analyst speak aside, millions and millions of new Android phones have already been sold in 2014. Chances are, about half of the folks reading this were part of it, and have a shiny new Android in their clutches. Congrats on such a good choice, no matter which one you chose.
Driverless cars are still very much works in progress and several years out from being a reality you in which can ride away from the dealership, but that doesn’t mean the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation isn’t conducting their own threat analysis on the future of automated automation. The internal report states that “Autonomy … will make mobility more efficient, but will also open up greater possibilities for dual-use applications and ways for a car to be more of a potential lethal weapon that it is today.”
