If the price of the Phone plus camera module is lower than the arm and a leg Samsung wants for the S7 then LG have a winner. 4000mah (2800+1200) combined is OK if it's already very good on battery with that 2800Mah alone, reviews will tell if that's the case. If they don't price it right then all of this is DOA.
This time LG G5 isn't great on aesthetics overall but I don't personally mind if it looked like a turd as long as it has a great camera and top notch battery life, atleast an expandable one to some degree at an affordable price.
Design-wise, G5 is a huge step down. G4 is attractive but G5 is very ugly. Looks like chinese phones.
AnonD-505197, 21 Feb 2016i dont like the philosophy of the modular design, i want to carry less than more- personally i... moreCouldn't agree with you more!
Gimmicks the more I think about them
Especially as thru each require a reboot!
Conspiracy : LG G5 has Snapdragon 820 SoC benchmarked by ANTUTU 5 but SGS7 has Exynos 8890 SoC benchmarked by ANTUTU 6. Why dont you benchmarking those 2 smartphones by same ANTUTU version? (sorry bad english)
Don't you think the g5 would have looked better if they had the camera hump and fingerprint hump integrated into a single v shaped hump? Like all the controls on a superman shaped hump
I miss the back button....its a style of the G series...
N where are the X series ????? Not yet ?????
G5 body look like Chinese copy smartphone.. Not elegant again like g4.. But more attractive than predecessor..

But the problem is that they have to give everyone what they want at a price they will buy it at. It doesn't matter if you make the worlds greatest phone that appeals to every single person if you can't sell it.

Anonymous, 21 Feb 2016Damn LG. At first, I wanted to praise LG G5, but seeing that they removed a lot of very import... moreLG G5 is missing another very important feature. It does NOT have manual video controls (that you saw in LG V10). Shame LG.
V10 had a 32bit DAC, they specifically removed it to give a purpose to the add-on.
A scroll-wheel or at the very least dedicated camera button, could have been included (Sony Xperia line?).
A bit thicker with more battery would have been more useful.
Same size of G4 with 0.2" less screen.
Still on-screen buttons.
LCD when G Flex has been using their OLED tech for years.
why lg why.
Anonymous, 21 Feb 2016Those bananas ! next time please buy fresh ones for MWC !It's because bananas organise illegal fights when no one is watching, thats why they have those black spots all over them:D
I was hoping Lg would finally go AMOLED since they make AMOLED Tvs. Design also sucks, the bezels are still bigger than 3 years ago with the G2. Why backtrack? Well, Maybe next year, LG.
Great job LG. Like the new magic slot. But why remove back buttons?
Looks really good to me. Just waiting for fall to see my options: HTC, Meizu, OnePlus, and Sony. Samsung better bring a much better device, or they're out of the running for my money
Is this always on screen feature a copy of Nokia glance screen feature ? I don't see any difference.
