Is it the actual release date or just an announcement... When is it likely to be available on sale in India??
Solun1, 05 Feb 2016Samsung announced the unveiling date earlier than LG.Samsung sent it invite to the event 4 days ago, LG sent out almost 3 weeks ago.
Guys plz stop abusing each ither let the phones come out.then will see which is great as ultimately buyer is gaining not the companies
Dlareg610, 05 Feb 2016LG is obviously a copy-cat of Samsung even the date of unvieling their new phones. What a shame!I know, shame on LG for announcing the date first and picking an earlier time of the day than Samsung! Have they no consideration for the die hard Samsung fanboys who wants to boast that the latest Samsung phone is the best thing since sliced bread!? /s

G4 sold more than s6 i guess. shamesung doesnt have buyers even in emerging markets these days. chinese midrange phones have eaten up all its market share

The phone to compare to is the Blackberry Priv. The security (Privacy) that Priv offers as standard will be a game changer.

Oh please! Two companies that made their fortunes by cheap, crappy consumer products on par with the cheapest of Japanese at even lower prices.
They have absolutely no idea wtf they're doing. They just try something new out each successive year, dump a gazillion devices based on their flagships on the market each year and hope one product sticks! Instead of listening to their consumers and bundling that information into that one perfect device.
As usual, both the S7 and G5 will a riddled with compromises and disappointments. I don;t hold my breath anymore for these guys.

For me, the G4 at least matched the performance of the S6, it might have taken a couple of milliseconds longer to load app perhaps, but was definitely more fluid when navigating around the UI. Also the memory management on the G4 was miles ahead of the S6, I especially liked a little feature added to the G4 in one of it's firmware updates that allowed you to pin apps to running memory (a great little feature that never seems to get the attention it deserves).
Overall the performance LG were able to get out of the 808 when compared to the much more powerful (on paper) 7420, was indeed impressive.

I would say LG has finaly found a way to boost performance and creat a lag free device..unlike samsung with such a powerful peocessor in the Note 5 it still showes lag.
junb2007, 04 Feb 2016I hope LG will have 2 variants of G5, a 5.5" and a 5" with exactly same internal specs unlike ... moreYeah it's a subjective issue, and I fully agree that LG have no regard for smaller sized devices, I can't think of a single scenario in which I would recommend the G4 Beat.
But I also thought LG did larger screened devices better than most (with the exception of the V10), the G2, G3 and G4 all felt and handled like smaller devices (the G4 less so, but it still wasn't unwieldy), this cannot be said of all other competing devices featuring 5.5inches and higher screens, The Nexus 6P, Iphone 6 & 6S Plus, Xperia Z5P, OnePlus One and Two etc. are all bigger than they need to be in my opinion.
If LG can stick to a 5.5inch screen, with the same body to screen ratio as they have in the past, I for one will be ok with it.
LG is going for full clean kill on Samsung, they know Samsung never learns from its obsessive Apple copying habits. It will have it all:
- replaceable battery
- SDcard slot
- yet another class leading camera
Battery life is only thing LG lags behind against Samsung.
junb2007, 04 Feb 2016I hope LG will have 2 variants of G5, a 5.5" and a 5" with exactly same internal specs unlike ... moreCouldn't agree more! I have no problem with those who want a phablet but I want a phone, so why not have a version of each with the same specs other than screen size and battery size? I have a G2 and that is the ideal size for me, a phone which can still be operated with one hand only, the only way I would have a larger screen is if it was in virtually the same body size. So failing tiny bezels I hope there two sizes of G5, 5 - 5.2" for a phone and 5.5 - 5.7" for a phablet giving choice for the same looks and performance

Reason is that some would want a bigger display and others want a smaller display. That is a fact and LG is SO STUBBORN to ignore it since G3. Look at 6s and 6s+, s6 and note5, z5 compact and Z5 and z premium they come in different sizes with high end specs. Take note LG not all wanted a GIANT phone.
Awesome. Two of the best phones' successors are being announced a day before my birthday. What an awesome treat~
its good to see LG is in now competetion mood....but this has to done much earlier (means when they launch their G2, G3 AND G4).....only LG has that pottencial in their product to compete samsung strongly......they also need to done marketing in aggressive style lyk samsung.....
