in my opinion(and others) lite/se stands for smaller or less speced device which usually goes at the lower price.
as an lg fan (since prada 3.0) i am well disappointed again.
800 for lower soec device when you can buy g5(same size better specs) for 600-650 sim free...
I've been using some of Samsung phones (Alpha, S4, Note3, S5,and now E5) Iphone 5S and Sony Z3 compact, this time I bought LG G5 SE (used for 4 days). Now I am still using Samsung E5 and Iphone 5S. I set display brightness 40%, network on 2G/Edge as I am not playing games and less web browsing, switch on my handphone every day at 08.00 AM until average 11.00PM. Samsung E5 still have (average) 80% battery left, Iphone 5S 75%, but LG G5 SE 63% (average). I don't know why LG G5 SE consume for power compare to Samsung E5 and Iphones for the same activities.
Anyway I may say I like LG G5 SE, it has ability to modify more than what I can do with Samsung. I can lock and unlock the phone by tapping on the screen, pretty simple for me.
Camera (dual camera) is good, sharp and clear especially camera with wide angle lens. pretty decent in low light, well not good as Samsung S7 when I made direct comparison at Samsung stores.
In general, I am happy with my first experience with LG smartphone.
This phone is a joke, currently the pre-order started in Brazil with a ridiculous price tag, about the same as the Galaxy S7 Edge! U$970,00 to be exact.
What makes everything worse are the main retailers not listing it properly as "G5 SE", they are going for the full LG G5 naming and promo, they're hiding the actual model number and specifications.
Here are the brief specs of the LG G4:
Model: H815P, Processor: 64bit Hexa-core Snapdragon 808 with Adreno 418 Graphics, Memory: 3GB Ram, 32GB Internal.
Now on the same website:
Model: LG G5, Processor: Octa-core, Memory 32GB Internal
Did LG make this cheaper so we could have a more affordable phone or so companies and themselves make more profit? The base salary in Brazil is less than U$250/month, they're selling a trimmed down version of the LG K10 for U$270 with 1GB RAM, it feels like LG wants to earns their profit one way or another.
So we gotta work more for less and pay more for less, makes sense huh.
great phone. enough specifications for an average user.if LG makes pocket friendly the phone will be sold like hot cacke,also i love removable battery and dedicated memmory card slot'.
its a cool phone compared to samsung its top of the range and best selling phone on the market right now.#THUMBSUPLGG5
Phone Android :
3. Camera enough for use.
4. CPU enough for use.
Spec: Pin removable. I like this.
dangle, 24 Apr 2016Love the removable battery.Yes, me too. I have no earthly idea why companies are making all these phones without removable batteries. It makes no sense. Phone is essentially worthless once it stops working.
Ok I saw what you did there LG. You could have actually sealed this iteration off and make it waterproof you know. Just saying in case of next time!
When I saw the "SE" moniker, which reminds me of the recent Apple product that are small, some say it's a downgrade. For some a sophisticated downgrade of a monstrously powerful flagship is exactly what's needed. For LG, 3 generations of 2K displays of the G series (not to mention the V10, which also have 2K resolution) I thought with an "SE" they would brilliantly delivers a much needed FHD flagship phablet into the latest Marshmallow-equipped lineup. But according to this rumour I was wrong. I won't let my hopes up though, not at least until the phone made official retail release.
I know most other brands has already set out their fighters in this department, but LG has its own strengths:
On screen navigation bar that always lit up brightly whenever the screen turned on (so far I have only noticed Motorola and Sony that does this, and Sony's got a nice trick that hides this virtual navbar when viewing pictures/videos, only a single tap away from bringing it back to use),
and with the new G5, Modularity.
yes! great! now, can we have one that will actually fit into the pocket rather than backpack please!
