LG please release the G5 in 2 sizes, 5.6" and 5". You are the only company that ignore such a FACT that people have different choices in terms of screen sizes. Your G4 Beat is indeed small but you also downgraded the specs its's a useless phone. Look at Iphone in different sizes, the Z5 series and S6 with Note5. LG only has 5.5 and thought it is a huge trend now bigger screen. Hmmm.
TOR, 02 Jan 2016I propose improvements compared with G4: Better battery Fast Battery Charging 4gb ram 820 ... moreI want to know when wil the LG G5 will be released in South Africa I am interested I Have a Samsung Note 4 and it freeze allot and sometimes it give me a black screen but I'm happy with the battery and have n memory card slot and the Samsung Note 5 don't have one and the LG G4 is doing good I'm selling cellphones and there are already clients that whant that phone can you tell me Maby when we will get it.Thank you.
There are no LTE bands specified in the specification.
Which LTE bands, does this phone support?
Will it support Band 3(1800) and Band 40(2300) ?
When we are talking about CPU, then only the single core performance is what matters. Because most Android programs and games are single threaded (for example the most CPU intensive programs are the emulators (DosBox, PPSSPP, ...), they use mainly 1 core only).
Multicore benchmarks are brainwashing gimmicks for the ignorants. In real world, you will NEVER use all cores at 100%, so you will never experience the benefit of 8 cores.
And when we are talking about GPU, then only the on-screen benchmark is what matters. Because only that measures the real world performance.
The idiot phone manufacturers and brainwashed consumers, article authors think phones need QHD screen resolution. But in fact, it's pointless for phones. 720p is perfectly enough for phones. (Don't forget that Samsung phones have Amoled display. They have PenTile subpixes which makes it pixelated, so they need higher resolution to hide the pixelation. It's another reason along with burn-in problems, why IPS LCD is better.)
techlover1, 16 Jan 2016I agree with you my friend, you're right. It will be better and probably it will really be the... morelg g5 has a function of usb otg and a microsoft or windows like nokia? and also has 3 slots for dual sim and micro sd slot and can read 2 tb like lgv10?
tudy555, 18 Jan 2016It is rumored it will be a 2.6ghz cpu not 2.2,my LG G2 has 2.2 right nowYes,even with 1 GHz dual core SD820 still beats your 2.2 GHz quad core ( fast but old ) SD800.
Look at geekbench 3 results of SD800 vs 801 vs 810,even GHz are lower,the single and multi core performance are still better on SD810 and will be even a lot better on 820.Because there are a lot of other things that affects the performance ( 64bit architecture,bigger L caches,memory speed and bandwidth etc)
tudy555, 18 Jan 2016It is rumored it will be a 2.6ghz cpu not 2.2,my LG G2 has 2.2 right nowUp to 2.2 GHz quad-core

if all the rumors are true or come true, WOW is all I can say. This might turn out to be the perfect phone. I have been searching for the perfect phone for years. Some have come close while some are light years away. I currently use the A9 by HTC. I love it, its small and compact but elegant as well. I hate big phones. I owned the ZTE axon, Moto x (all 3) Samsung s6 both versions, and others. I love the a9 if it had the 820 with 4gb of ram it would be my keeper even with the small battery. I would love to have 3,000 mah but it charges really fast so its ok. THE LG G5 is looking like the HTC A9 on steroids. OH YEAH BABY its going to be a good year to be an Android fan.
Final answer plz,,
5'3 inch or 5'6 inch ???
I hope with confirmation
Scroll down the specs sheet and it looks great (will be perfect if it has FM radio with RDS and at least a 3200mah removable battery) Would also like a 5 inch version with the same specs, maybe the screen resolution could be 1080p to save battery and it could be 3000mah to help reduce size.

Anonymous, 16 Jan 2016If you don't afford buying a g3 or g4 don't speak. G2 is much by far weaker than the next models.Wouldn't say "by far"....https://youtu.be/CLT6nmlRtQI
Again, dimensions are very important factor to many smartphone users.
emirati89, 11 Jan 2016I love LG premium smart phones, also I hope LG G5 will be dual sim card. with snapdragon 820 w... moreI really hope too that they will retain the dual sim and removable battery. I have my G4 and i absolutely love it. Bigger battery like 4000 mah is also a dream. Thank you.
