LG G5 8 marks out of 10
If they keep price upto $560 then its a great deal.
What hou have done with the Battery LG... Rest of the things are top class then why the Battery has been shrunked?? This is the bad unit to disappoint many Fans...
I am kind of impress for this new lg g5,i give them a 8 1/2 out of 10
The phone alone looks great..the accessories do look ugly..i dont understand why people are saying the phone is ugly..the back camera looks a little odd..other than that the phone is designed beautifully..and kudos to lg for adding removable battery to a metallic phone.
That horizontal duo camera setup looks awkward, fingerprint reader its just another bump on the back, the rest of the back with those rounded corners looks plain and unattractive. Modular design its just another gimmicky feature, will be abandoned after 1 or 2 generations:D Even tho i liked the idea of adding more capable DAC, but it should have been integrated in the first place on this LGs new flagship, not to rip off me extra for better sound:P The front also doesnt offer much in terms of designs, i own G3 gold color with LGs circle view case, witch one has that nice texture to touch and solid grip, and looks way better than G5... Kinda disappointed, 2 years of waiting for nothing:D Gonna set my eyes on V10 or Nexus 6p

But i never use stock launcher. Get Buzz or Apex or Nova..
Is the G5 waterproof??? Because a scene in the unveiling shows a surfer taking a video while surfing... Does this mean the phone is waterproof ?? I definitely want it to be....
I'm super impressed by LG! These are total game-changers! Forget its aesthetics. People will probably comment on any ugly face of the owner of the phone than the phone itself.
truly innovative but unpleasant looks. adding accessories looks more uglier. a micro-sd slot & removable battery was sufficient.
Where is the App Drawer (icon)? From the video you can see, that none of the 5 icons on the bottom is the app drawer.
Extremly ugly and big phone, nothing new, under the pressure to make premium phone with aluminium and replaceable battery they failed...
You know what? You guys should try designing a smart phone from the ground up and getting the design, components, materials, machining, assembly, software, marketing and sales to hang together then repeat it every 12 months (plus the minor models launched throughout the year) and see how well you do. I take my hat off to LG for trying to do something bold and break out of the same-ole run-of-the-mill smartphone rut. OK so some things could be prettier, perhaps some material choices are questionable, but without innovators and their awkward first attempts where would we be? And it'll still be cheaper than an i-clone. Congrats LG, succeed or fail you're in a small bunch of manufacturers brave enough to give it a go and pave the way for others. Respect!
