LG G5: Innovative Design

The most interesting thing about the LG G5 is its modular design. This allows users to remove the device’s “chin” and replace it with different modules, depending on what is needed. Presently, LG has made available two modules — the LG Cam Plus and the LG Hi-Fi Plus with B&O Play — both of which was discussed in this post.


The LG G5 comes in an aluminium uni-body build and features top-of-the-line specs. The flagship is equipped with a fingerprint sensor and is armed with three cameras (two at the back, one in front).


The rest of the specs is what you would expect on a flagship smartphone nowadays. It has a powerful 64-bit Snapdragon 820 processor, an Adreno 520 graphics chip and 4GB LPDDR4 RAM. The display uses IPS technology and has a Quad HD (2560 x 1440) resolution with a pixel density of 554 ppi. It also has the Always-on Display first introduced on the LG V10.
