is it i am the only one who thinks this is disaster not innovation? project ARA rip off, looks very lame again no competition for samsung :( S7 destroys everything ,g4 was so close to ultimate phone only low end chipset prevented for becoming number one, but sorry guys this G5 nonsense not even close to G4
Bravo LG! really amazed with your work. while everyone was waiting for samsung to pull out something more than expected, LG just crushed MWC......
THIS.. IS...TRULY.. INNOVATION..
SALUTE TO LG.. YOUR IDEAS ARE AMAZE ME..
while other brands are yelling and mocking and chasing benchmark score, but you are different.. cheers!!
Anonymous, 21 Feb 2016Yep, no OLED is a shame definatelyHang tight..LG is working on their own oled displays for 2017 or 2018.
Skipp.. LG actually admit, no premium stuff insite our phone.. but we have it, just buy it seperate .. where is the idea of compact, easy and all in one...now i need to carry all those stuff with me all the time....
#@$@$# stick to LG G4
cless85, 21 Feb 2016Finally saw something very different instead of merely hardware upgrade... good job LG!I totally agree with you,mate. I am super impressed with their advertisement and I really hope the G5 lives up to consumers expectation. I am looking forward to own a G5.
Yanibest, 21 Feb 2016I would by if it is AMOLED.. But hell no.. HayysYep, no OLED is a shame definately
it's great to see companies trying new thing, it's refreshing.
i wouldn't like restarting the phone every time i swap a module, but i guess this is a 1st generation problem, probably if the sealed the battery it would've been a smarter implementation choice, all things they "added" probably would be possible with a specialized case. looking forward for the next gen "Friends"
AnonD-7834, 21 Feb 2016Hey gsmarena, please post about s7 unveiling, I'm losing my patience. Just over an hour to go to s7 unveiling
Show stopper...This is great design. Finally a smartphone who bothers and believes in new innovations, who care for their customers. The replaceable battery, Modular camera grip, Modular Hifi DAC, Wide angle+Normal lens...What more does one want? The feast is on. I can't be any more happier. Samesong and Crapple, Better not launch your apples and lemons that looks and feels the same for past 3 years. Congrats LG from my bottom of heart.

AnonD-263286, 21 Feb 2016Modular design is an old idea that was never successful in an ever advancing computer and elec... moreVery true. If like to learn more about the 360 camera and it's use with VR headsets. The other modules seem a bit pointless to me (I don't have a cat!!) Hopefully some other better options will become available in future.
Screen is a real disappointment. Was hoping for a large AMOLED - but u can't have everything I guess!
Good work LG :) Exciting stuff
