LG G5 Review! – Top 8 Reasons to Buy LG G5!


For those of you who are thinking about getting the LG G5, here’s the top 8reasons why you should buy LG G5.

First and foremost, if you want to have two back cameras, one primary and other super wide-angle, the LG G5 is definitely the way to go as it offers you a wide-angle camera usually found on much bigger DSLRs/mirrorless cameras.  The primary camera on LG G5 already keeps up with cameras on other flagships like the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge and by having additional wide-angle camera, you will be able to take photos otherwise not possible (such as taking a wide-angle shot from the top of Great Wall in China).

Second, if you need to best microphone on a flagship smartphone this year, LG G5 has the best microphone that I’ve tested.  While Samsung went backwards with water-proof design that made their microphone unusable from far away, LG has done a terrific job of improving upon LG G4’s less-than-stellar microphone.  When using the LG G5 in windy situations or in crowded loud environments, the microphone performs top-notch, better than every flagship phone this year.

Third, if you absolutely need removable battery and you want a the world’s first modular smartphone (that can be upgraded with new hardware modules), LG G5 is definitely the way to go as all other flagship smartphone have internal batteries.  While the LG G5’s battery on a single charge falls short of its competition, the fact that users can carry 1 or 2 extra spare batteries and swap them out makes it practical for people who don’t like to hug the wall.

Fourth, while Samsung has removed its IR blaster from their new phones, LG has kept this neat little feature for all of us couch potatoes who appreciate being able to use one device to control everything in their house.  May be not a big deal for some but this may be very useful for those of you who use TV or AC often.
