Hands on LG G5 – A Modular phone with innovative features

March 27, 2016 Android LG New Launch

The Korean company, LG, finally unveils the LG G5. The LG G5 is one of the best smartphone that was ever built by the Korean company. It is one of the most innovative devices unveiled at the MWC. 



The design of this model also shows that the company is serious in coming to task with the competitors such as Samsung, Apple, and the rest. The flagship alone has with it plug-in modules that the company call the G5 friends. So, instead of cramming everything in the same phone like it used to do, it has decided to be innovative this time around. In designing smartphones, most smartphone manufacturers know that cramming the latest innovations into a smartphone is not the way to go – it does not make a phone great on its own. And this has been the weakness of LG for some time. However, it is able to overcome that with the introduction of the LG G5. The phone is splendidly designed, in a aluminum unibody design. Evidently, the phone will be efficient and serve as a good alternative to smartphones from the likes of Samsung, Apple, etc. 


The phone will come with 5.3-inch, 2560x1440 LCD, a 2800mAh battery, 32GB of storage, 4GB of RAM, dual rear 16MP and 8MP camera, and Snapdragon 820. Then you can subscribe for extras such as NFC, a USB Type C port, an IR blaster, a microSD slot, and a fingerprint reader. 

It is one of the tiniest smartphones and yet very powerful. And the most important is that it will probably be available for a low price too. LG has also shown with this model that it can always give us the latest Qualcomm processing in its latest smartphones, the latest connectivity (like NFC and LTE) in its smartphone, and more and more features. 

The company will release the modular G5 with a camera grip, an external DAC (Digital-to-Analog Converter). And it should be available in different colors as it was displayed in grey, silver, pink, and gold. 


From the announcement of the LG G5 and the public reaction, it seems that the company has done things right with this smartphone. As for the price, it is not yet released.
