LG G5 Hands On!


LG has launched their latest flagship smartphone, the LG G5. This is their 5th iteration of G series smartphones and with their latest version, LG has transformed its phone into a modular with all metal unibody design.

The LG G5 comes with a 5.3-inch quad-HD 1440P display, Snapdragon 820 processor, 4 gigs of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and a micro-SD card slot for expanding storage. There’s also an always-on LCD, that has its own separate power.

For battery, the LG G5 uses a modular slide-out battery that can easily be swapped for new batteries on the go. This is the world’s first smartphone to feature all unibody design along with a removable battery. For those of you concerned with battery life yet you want an all metal unibody design, this may be the way to go.

On the top of G5, you will find a 3.5mm headphone jack followed by IR blaster and microphone. On the left are the volume buttons, on the right is the microSD and nanoSIM slot. The G5 has an interesting design as there’s a slot on the middle of the device which is wide enough to slide your fingernails across it. On the bottom of the device, you will find speakers and a USB Type C.

On the back, he LG G5 comes with whopping two cameras on the back, one with 16MP F1.8 for great low-light performance and bokeh while the 8MP F2.4 can capture a super-wide angle of 135 degrees along with fingerprint sensor and power button. I am actually amazed at this as it’s like having two cameras in one smartphone, wait it has two cameras. This makes the G5 more versatile than many other smartphones out there and the wide-angle is wider than the Galaxy Note 5 and LG V10. Also, the wide-angle camera will help you stabilize your video recordings better.
