LG G5 Review! – Top 8 Reasons to Buy LG G5! - Page 2

Fifth, LG G5 comes with latest USB Type C along with Quick Charge 3.0 support and USB-C 3.1 specification which allows it to have higher read/write speeds when using USB Type C devices like USB OTG.  (See our USB OTG Test here.)

Sixth, LG G5 has a fingerprint sensor on the back of the device and also can be unlocked without having to press the Power button just like Nexus 6P.  In my opinion this is superior to having on the front as you can quickly unlock your phone with one hand while having it on the front is cumbersome and usually requires two hands in awkward positions like using your phone in bed.

Seventh, LG G5 is easily rootable and will have great custom ROM support for those of you who don’t like LG UI.  There also will be full support for CyanogenMod ROMs since it’s based on Qualcomm Snapdragon 820.  While Samsung has decided to shut down the root community for its U.S. customers by locking the bootloader on all U.S. models, LG has not gone astray.

Eighth, price has been steadily falling for LG G5.  While it was introduced for $599 retail at launch, you can grab an international GSM LG G5 for just $420-430 on eBay.  Why buy a non-flagship phone like OnePlus 3 when you can actually buy a flagship phone for about the same price?

Of course, there are also reasons to not buy this phone but we will have another review on that soon so stay tuned!
