Since you can't do that until the phones come out in March and April, respectively, I've tried to do the next best thing: showing you the devices side by side in photos and video.
The G5 and S7 Edge are the two most interesting phones of this year's. The G5 because of its spin on a modular phone with a key swappable part, and the S7 Edge because its enhancements to the second menu bar display makes the feature eminently more useful.
But how do the phones really look and feel different from each other when you see them up close? Take the photo tour to find out, and scroll down for a refresher on how the specs stack up.
