Anonymous, 16 Mar 2016Why the dual camera design like that? I've had five amoled phones in my family, with four being recent samsungs. Literally every single one of them had some sort of defect on their screen, two being so severe that they got sent off to service. This is the main reason I have started to hate these screens, the other being the awful piss-white color they produce. When smartphones came out I left Sony for Samsung and I've been loyal to them ever since. Now I'm leaving them because they started aping apple's crap in every possible way. The Note 4 was sammy's last good phone.
AnonD-304329, 17 Mar 2016I like to think of it as a clever way to mimic an optical zoom...The G5 has 2 different camera's. One is like every other camera with a standard view and the other one is for the wide angle option. It's actually pretty great.
Held it in my hands, it's comfortable and the expendable memory is up to 2TB, not 200GB. The specs are great. Hopefully the battery life is much better than the G4. I'm going to get the G5 soon.
LG g5 is the best cause you cannot compare LG with Samsung cause Samsung nowadays the sell name just like Toyota n Africa anyway I like LG.

Of course the best phone at this year with a lot of features, But why LG the screen is smallest than g4 ???? ,I thought it will be bigger, Disappointing, May be the next version G6.
I would prefer to buy galaxy s7 edge or xperia z5 premium rather than this ugly phone which gives the look of 8 to 10k phone atleast s7 and z5 have much better and premium look than this g5 and s7 has exceptional design which makes it different than other phones and z5 is a combination of power and beauty with a 4k display and no body will like that his phone get ruined by rain that's why both s7 and z5 are waterproof and this g5 is a combination of Uglyness and no phone can beat this phone in uglyness so this is the only positive point in g5 which makes it different phone than others

I do like the S7 but spending all that money on a phone that has no replaceable battery I just couldn't do and imagine after two years after all those quick charges the battery on the S7 will be knackered whereas on the G5 you just stick in a new one and you is good to go.
That for me is the determining factor on why I'd get a G5.
joy, 16 Mar 2016i am LG G3 user but G5...what is new in this phone..... Me too...
Impress with LG G5 Powerful phone surprise with camera 16 mp,IR blaster,next gen USB C-type reversible, where all this features are missing on Samsung S7 their flagship phone.

G5: Dual Camera 16MP+ Wide Angle 8MP with LASER Focus (Not Dual… Focus… S7 12MP)
ThanosB75, 14 Mar 2016Derek 100% I agree with you!!!
Congratulations about your analysis!!!Waterproofing: So you have to use a big bulky case that takes away from the premium feel of the phone which was the only reason LG redesigned the phone in the first place with an aluminum build, just to do what the Samsung can do without a case and retaining its premium glass/aluminum build? And how am I dumb if I like to take care of my phones and dont use a case? I prefer to be able to appreciate the build quality of something I just payed 800 dollars for.
Design: Like you said its a subjective topic, and there isn't a right or wrong answer to this.
Battery: Okay it is proven that AMOLED panels are more efficient due to their ability to shut off pixels, give me one source that shows LCD is more efficient as a fact and I'll shut up. And yes the G5 DOES need a better battery, the LG G4 had 3000 MAH and only lasted me a day when I had power saving modes on and monitored my usage very carefully, I can go all out on my Note 5, achieving over 5 hours of screen on time, which my G4 never even got close too, dont even get me started on the g3, both phones lasted only around 3 to 3 and a half hours of SOT, and look this up for yourself I'm not the only one reporting this. Quick charge 3.0 is faster, But remember, you wont need to charge the phone as much, it will last much much longer, but since you're a bit slow, then just wait for the official test's and see for yourself who is going to have better battery life. Quicker isn't always better.
It shoot's a little better? Ever heard of dual pixel autofocus? it focuses in like one third of the time it takes for the G5. And the G5's main shooter is the same 16 MP we've had before already in the V10 and G4, So it's now LG's THIRD time using this sensor. Rediculous.
I've used over 4 samsung phones in the past year, and none have burn in. My sister's both have Note 4's used from launch day till now, No burn in. My old note 2 on cyanogenmod? No burn in. And it is 100% proven as a fact that AMOLED is the more efficient screen technology. The S7's screen isn't "marginally" better, It's leagues ahead in terms of contrast, and ability to reproduce complete black colors. Ask any reviewer in the world out there with an S7, I can guarantee you 9/10 people will say the S7/S7 Edge has the best screen on the market.
Are you an idiot? Have you ever used android? how do you not know what he means? He's saying the S7 doesnt have onscreen navigation keys that eat up screen estate, meaning more of the screen is usable by things like apps.
It hasn't been confirmed yet what the G5 will and wont have in the box since IT'S NOT EVEN OUT YET. Who knows maybe it will have a QC 3.0 charger in the box, if it does that's great but once again I addressed battery issues already ^^^^
You obviously haven't used newer touchwiz, it's alot cleaner and has a full fledged theme store which works fantastic, and offers a slew of features stock android cant match, and LG cant either. And besides, any software feature the G5 has, the S7 can do better. So idk what you're talking about, touchwiz is fine except for a bit of aggressive management which is still a bit hit or miss, but has been mostly fixed for the S7
He's saying to unlock the FULL potential of the G5 you have to buy modules, such as the B&O 32 bit dac which was actually implemented internally in the V10, but now it has to be a module in the G5? But the modules aren't a huge deal any ways and like you said they are optional.
So, in closing, stop being absolutely ignorant. You clearly don't know anything about phones, and you clearly hate the Galaxy S7 for being a strong competition.
Take your tiny battery and modules, and go home.
