Sebstin, 19 Feb 2016Anyway after using a case, it wont be that bad.. right?I hope so... But, I am only a designer, so... what a heck I know. :P
Zahid Hasan, 20 Feb 2016Why don't you design a phone and share with us? Save your big talk, it looks nice.Something like a Nokia E90 instead of just a screen day in ,day out,year after year with no soul just miserable slab..
LG, y u increase the bezel size, not decrease it ;( The G2 was the best designed phone so far, and it came out 3 years ago and made the g series popular.What happened since?

Tony, 20 Feb 2016LG are fools ! They are shooting in the dark, sometimes they make a great phone (G3), sometim... moreI agree with you, LG seems so lost and despondent. G2/G3 even G4 were all great phones but this is a major devolution of their hardware design.
Anonymous, 20 Feb 2016ugly i don't buy this phone! I owned g2 initially,fantastic phone ever.
When g3 launched,very impressive design,very attractive,immediately i upgraded to g3.
Last year when g4 launched,a piece of failure,nothing impressive,nothing attractive,still hold with my g3.
Thought of this year something will be very exciting from g5 and get ready to upgrade to g5,then after seeing the design,look at those ugly side buttons,it's back to square one again,the old fashion design reoccurrence on lg phone,i can't believe this is g5,i thought lg phones always being innovative,i think i can't continue to speak further,let me put a full stop here.
sponger bob, 19 Feb 2016These are fake pictures ,where is magic slot . Let us wait for the official launch of the phoneFor the sake of LG i hope your right... I don't buy phones based on looks but if that picture is true I wouldn't consider the G5 based on the UGLY FACTOR.
Judging by majority of comments - ppl nowadays care only about "design". For me functionality > design. I would go for 10 000mAh removable battery and other critical functions rather than so called "design".
And Im confused whether the phones LG G5/S7/ Mi5 are going to be just announced within next 1-3 days or will actually be released (Esp in India) ?????? I waited for almost a month for Mi5 to release but if its released at more later date then better I buy One plus two as Im looking for the best 5.5in phone in SD810/820 octacore category .... but the heating prob in sd810 is stopping me to buy OP2...
Anonymous, 20 Feb 2016n curved screenAgreed. Couldn't say it any better!
After seeing this design I am actually confused, I am considering s7 ,lg g5 and xiaomi mi5 to buy (in may-june ) ,s7 has best chipset (which will remain at top at least for 6 months ), waterproof (less you have to worry about phone ,the better ) battery improved (rumored 3000mah) and will most probably get the best camera in the market but I hate wiping fingerprints off the phone again and again , g5 has advantage with dual camera setup ,removable battery , and the magic slot attracts attention too (it may not have good modules released in start but maybe with it's upcoming flagship phones it may have better modules ) but fingers are crossed about design (hope like nexus 6p it look good in real life) and nothing to say about mi5 except its rumored dual edge display and it release in India in time and it will save some of my bucks

Kambing lapar, 19 Feb 2016Fanboys getting jelous with lg by saying ugly.dont care meh.lg g5 is awesome goodlookin phone indeedWell someone's in serious denial, 2/3rd of the comments say it's fugly.
Anonymous, 20 Feb 2016The G5 was going to be my next phone, but not anymore. LG, Samsung and HTC phones this year lo... moreYou're a hard customer to impress, both Samsung's top notch Galaxy's and HTC's upcoming phones like the M10 and A series look fantastic according to leaks and teaser shots.
