LG G5 Preview

Liam Hems Editor Rating: 3.9 / 5

LG added a brand new phone in its flagship line. Metal design, Always On display and Wide angle rare camera makes the device more unique as compare to its predecessors however it contains few features of LG V10.  The company kept MicroSD and removable battery feature it its flagship which is missing in the iPhone mobiles and even Galaxy S6.


Al last, LG moved from plastic and leather back and this time the company heading towards the right direction, though Samsung latest model Galaxy S7 comes with glass and metal fuss and iPhone 6s comes with aluminum body.  The LG G5 looks different than its antecedent LG G4, so in design segment the company tries to give different than other leading mobile makers.

Metallic body of the device feels smooth you can easily use and grip the handset. The power button is on the back while volume buttons are moved on the left side of the phone.  The power button also functions as fingerprint scanner. The company upgraded bottom port of the device uses a USB-C connection. The mobile comes in four sizzling colors such as Silver, Gold, Pink and Titan. There is nothing spectacular in color section.


Features and Specifications

One of the major features of the phone is Always on Display which is borrowed from LG V10. Upper part of the device shows notifications such as time, date, and other important information. Another great feature is wide angle second camera on back. The smartphone comes with high end specifications that we can expect from a 2016 model. LG G5 is powered with SD820 and 4GB RAM. It comes with 32GB storage that can be enhanced via MicroSD card. The 5.3 inches with 1440 x 2560 pixels resolution and the mobile runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow.



The LG G5 comes with dual cameras on the back 16 MP (f/1.8) + 8 MP (f/2.4), laser autofocus, OIS, LED flash and the camera has Geo-tagging, touch focus, face/smile detection, panorama, HDR features as well.  There is also a 8 MP camera on the front side of the mobile. At a vivid 135 degrees, the camera essentially perceives more than the human eye of about 120 to 124 degrees. Its field of view is able to capture everything you see and more.


Last year model LG G4 came with 3,000mAh battery but this time company reduced battery capacity and LG G5 has a 2800 mAh removable battery which keeps the device on. Usually we can remove a phone battery by removing back of the device but LG changed the way we approach the battery.   You can fetch bottom frame of your LG G5 mobile for removing the battery. The battery capacity of this device is a debatable issue, but if you face any problem with your device battery you can easily change it.
