The LG G5 offers users a premium build without compromises, but does it deliver enough? I haven’t had hands on time with it yet, but the early buzz says it should earn a spot in your pocket.
The LG G5 will sport a 5.3 inch Quad HD display with a 555ppi pixel density. It has an “always on design” which reminds me a lot Motorola’s Active display. While using this feature only 1/3 of the screen is active, which means the active display technology only uses 0.8% battery per hour.
The G5 will also have a 2,800 mAh removable battery. Last year the G4 had a 3,000 mAh battery, which, with my relatively heavy usage, lasted for about 1.5 days. Although the battery the G5 offers is slightly smaller, Lg is providing an additional larger battery via LG’s new modular design. The new modular design allows you to add other accessories to the phone in addition to the larger battery.
The LG G5 will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, along with 4GB of ram, and 32GB of internal storage, with the ability to add a micro sd card, which can extend the storage capacity up to, two TB.
The G5 is also bringing us a 16 MP wide angle rear camera, alongside a camera which can take regular pictures. When using the wide angle feature on the rear camera, it captures 135 degrees at 8 MP. On the front the G5 will sport a 8MP camera, and all of the cameras should take after the G4, and be in the top of the category for smartphone cameras.
With high specifications, a unique design that has a power user in mind, and a competitive price tag, the LG G5 is stacking up to be one of the best Android devices of 2016. I will give you guys my final verdict once I test it out, but I plan to be really impressed. Just like with the G4 last year, the G5 has me extremely hopeful, and excited.
