Enjoy life more with the LG G5



The G5 is LG’s reinvented flagship over last year’s predecessor, the G4. Now, incorporating a smaller, lighter body, the G5 is ergonomically pleasing to the hand. What’s noticeable is the elegant, rounded shape versus the G4’s square body and arced curve.

The screen is a beautifully curved 5.3” 3D glass that displays crystal-clear clarity at a staggering 2560 x 1440 pixels, equivalent to about 554 pixels per inch – comparable to other flagship devices under the Android umbrella. The power and volume keys now have their dedicated positions on the G5. The power key now serves as both a fingerprint scanner and a standby switch, which doesn’t entirely shut off the display. The LG G5 comes in four distinct colors accented with its metal frame: silver, titan, gold, and pink.

At the heart of the G5 is its snappy Snapdragon 820 processor. The phone utilizes an ample 4 gigabytes of RAM and houses an internal 32 gigabytes of storage, which is expandable thanks to its micro SD card slot. LG disposed of its traditional micro USB port for the more modern USB-C connection. Figuring out “which side is up” should no longer be a problem.

The G5’s dual camera is a blessing for landscape phone photographers. Capturing an ultra-wide angle of 135 degrees, the phone can see wider than the human eye. The rear bezel of the G5 houses two cameras: a dedicated 16-megapixel standard camera and an 8-megapixel wide-angle. Each camera functions independently can be toggled using LG’s camera app. The software allows for full manual control, from shutter speed, ISO sensitivity, and white balance, just to name a few. A joy to those who wish to have complete control of the camera settings to adapt to various photographic situations. The 16MP camera sports a fast f/1.8 aperture for challenging circumstances in low light environments, while the wide-angle 8MP camera houses a modest f/2.4 lens. In contrast to its competitors, the G5 utilizes a precise laser autofocus and does away with traditional contrast detection. And for those shaky hands, it has a 3-axis optical image stabilization as well.

One of the most prominent features of the G5 is its modular capabilities, a result of Google’s Project Ara – an innovation by Google that allows phones to adopt interconnecting peripherals. The removable lower bezel houses a battery tray that can be replaced in a cartridge-like manner, making battery swaps easy and convenient when running a low charge.

The G5 currently runs on the Android Marshmallow software and is slated to implement the new Nougat update before the end of the year.
