[Specs Comparison] The Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge, LG G5, And HTC 10

There are a TON of Android phone manufactures in the world. Yet, here in the US, only three have wide enough appeal to have their flagship devices sold by all 4 major US carriers (well, in HTC’s case 3 out of 4). Those manufacturers are, of course, Samsung, LG, and HTC. Now that their 2016 flagships, the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge, LG G5, & HTC 10 have all been announced, many of you will be tasked with the unenviable mission of deciding which of these three devices will be your next phone.

To help you with that decision, I’ve prepared a comparative spec chart so you can see how these three devices measure up to one another.
