LG G2, was perfect, that was the phone that made us love LG.
Its successor was G3, it became bigger, kept the same battery capacity and added some gimmick resolution that consumed twice as much, many of us were burned there and then.
G4 was taller than the G3, but had no bigger screen, or better battery endurance. LG advertised the camera and all suddenly ppl cared about was that, very few of us have criticized the backstep that was made in screen to body ratio. A phone should not be only judged by one feature and the rest should not be sacrificed covers, just one feature.
Yet all what ppl was talking is if S6 or Z5 had 1% better or worse camera...
And its time to pay, the G5 has grown even bigger than G4, yet it has a smaller screen estate and a smaller battery capacity and now the only thing that matters is the removable battery and modules, just because LG advertised that.
Sometimes i wonder if the ppl posting here have a mind of their own and needs of their own and priorities of their own, or they only care for what the companies happen to serve as priorities this time.
LG has failed a great share of ppl that dont want to carry a 15cm, just for a G2 screen, nor wont to invest time and miney to buy multiple batteries and chgarge them, or carry chargers and batterybanks. I used to try my G3 2 or 3 times per day, i was forced to buy another battery and gone to the daily hussle of removing covers (and once broke one connection) charging a battery, then again for the other rinse and repeat.
Should i consider this an advantage over all and should pay extra cash for a bulky and expensive module or secondary battery??
Really, have you convinced yr selves that this is the only advantage that matters and makes the G5 the best choice out there?
I aprecciate the innovative ideas of the modules, but they have at a great expense, this phone will be the bulkiest flagship with smallest display and battery, LG must be punished for this not commended again, because if we poraiuse them again, the G6 will come at 15.5cm, with a 5.1 inch screen and 2500mah...
people, you have rights to comment. But please don't comment without reason. some people tell this phone ugly and they are not giving reason for that. I know most of commenters like to promote S7. But true is G5 better than S7.

AnonD-505833, 06 Mar 2016Cam plus module has extra 1200mah. Then why do you want extra? With removable battery and quic... morecause we cant use cam model for all the time and the back becomes much thicker
and will be difficult to use
Cam plus module has extra 1200mah. Then why do you want extra? With removable battery and quick charger 3.0
Putting a bigger capacity fuel tank in your car wouldn't solve the problems if your car is a gas guzzler. Look for efficient engines instead of bigger fuel tank. Same logic applies, as long as G5 software is extremely optimized, the 2800 mah battery will be good.
It has quickcharge 3.0 and replaceable battery so I don't know why people are complaining about smaller battery capacity??
AnonD-455507, 05 Mar 2016u r right , i was eagerly waiting for this phone to buy, all is good but again battery sucks, ... moreBut It has a removable battery which is a plus point. If battery drains you can change to a new 5000+mah battery.
This phone is awesome !!!! Please LG make a real flagship G5 mini for people do not want big screen phones. Compete or win Sony's z5 compact specs and get people's money and heart.
Guys phone cost mainly depends upon the display and the potection to it...This makes the cost of the phone...like u can see all MI and lenovo phones with high specification are at very low price....becoz at last they use 720p...that u have to underastand
all LG G series have brilliant screen resolution u will fall in love ... and that screen consumes more battery becoz pixels are very higher
i was eagerly waiting for this phone to buy, all is good but again battery sucks, it should have a 4000mah battery atleast....when other competitors like lenovo and even samsung is going for big batteries....
please upgarde battery only ...i want to buy this phone
