I would suggest to go with experienced users feedback about these mobile phones. http://www.mouthshut.com/mobile-phones.php
I currently own an LG G3, and through what I've seen LG is really skilled at phonemaking. I compared a G3 to a Galaxy S5, and with the G3 you get 3 GBs of Ram to 2 GB, Dual LED, a laser, to make pictures brighter, 538 ppi to 432 ppi. 1440 by 2560 resolution, to 1080 by 1920. Trust me, LG is really good at phonemaking. So you can trust them. They really know what they are doing.
S4 i9506 is far better than G2. Trust me I have both phones. But G2 is way better than i9500, i9506 and google play. Make your decision my friend...
I must decide between these two cell phones. Could you help me please?. I have always bought Samsungs, because they are of very good quality and I have trouble trusting other brand.

Have to agree with you. I was a diehard Samsung fan but I got this LG G2 and totally loving it (more than I loved any Samsung smartphone). LG is good in incorporating the best of both hardwares ie., Apple's and Samsung's. LG also gives greater flexibility than Samsung. Not sure why LG sells far less smartphones than Samsung and Apple???
I think G2 is far better than S4-more powerful procesor,4K video playback (not recording,but anyway),better scren with real colors and better design. I think that Samsung ar enot that innovative as they were, plus Optimus UI is now far better than when it started.
