Finally some innovation! yet some will still butcher LG for not being stylish or fancy. this is not just a smartphone, it's a platform now. which will be copied by other manufacturers in upcoming years and will be called their innovation!!! anyway, Bravo LG. I like it...
Yep, almost everyone complaints about design, well, people had their reference
But IMO, this phone had power in that clumsy case.
I'm Not fanboy for "look" from the beginning :D
I don't like the design especially the back. Sorry not my preferable design. Skip...
i dont care about others but i find it quuite beautiful to my liking
horrible design, i rather have the IP68 phone in S7 edge then a silly module battery pack.. looks retarded lol
I don't know why people are comparing G5's bezel with HTC!!! Do guys even know what you are talkin about?? M8 got 66.7% screen-body ratio, M9: 68.4% and G5 is 70.1%. It is impossible to make worse bezel than HTC. What are they for?? Just for speakers? May be 5% people 10% (may be!) uses speakers on a phone. Yeah, G5's is the worst is LG's recent history, but look at the add on options, its unbeatable.
If they can design the G6, G7, to G29 to be compatible with these accessories, then wonderful.
10% of a days battery for always on, not good.
The dac should've been part of the phone not modular
Biggest question, are the modules going to be compatible with G6? Wouldn't want to have to buy everything again in a year, would make it too expensive.
I read 5.3" LCD screen & a huge sense of disappointment came over me :S
Not sure I'm interested in using any of the add-ons. Great innovation though LG. I'd just have preferred you'd kept the screen phablet size - my eyesight isn't getting any better with age! And LCD isn't gonna help me much for outdoor use :S
I love it....
& for those complaining about design
It looks better than g4..
Zanche, 21 Feb 2016Disappointed. Coming from the g3 this are my thoughts Cons: battery, display size 5.3", NO AP... moreBetter SoC, better screen visibility under sun and better colors overall, better cameras, better RAM, metal unibody and fingerprint scanner. Here are some pros
Looking at the size specifications, I can see that the phone is actually only 2mm narrower than the LG G4, while actually being taller and even thicker. Pretty stupid design choices, I would have expected significantly smaller size than the G4 since the screen is 5.3" instead of 5.5".
gcristian, 21 Feb 2016Removable battery is more than just removing the battery. If the battery is not removable you ... moreButthurt already? attacking personally already?
Wow, I didn't know some people are so sensitive about the huge bezels of the LG G5.
What I'm saying is, everyone was making fun of the huge bezels of HTC One M8 and couldn't accept the fact that it is due to the dual front firing speakers. And now, LG has the same huge bezels (albeit, with a different purpose) but you can't accept the fact that they are huge.
Who's the fan boy now? Sheesh.
Not going to lie but the G5 is ugly as hell,I'm going to miss the design of the older flagships like the G4.Since I'm more of a design-before-anything type of guy,this is definitely not a phone for me.
juanandres, 21 Feb 2016Not an excuse because when HTC does their thing about having boomsound speakers on the front, ... moreRemovable battery is more than just removing the battery. If the battery is not removable you can put in a slightly larger battery or make the phone slimmer. Please go back to your cave and play on your i-toy or Samsung, I've used all the devices out there Lumia 720, note 3, note 4, oneplus one, LG g4 and now a Huawei mate 8 so you can call me fanboy :))
