FinishMetal housing


This fifth edition of LG's flagship G-series tries to solve the dilemma between metal casings and replaceable batteries with its modular concept, which means that its removable base slides the battery tray out so you can replace its 2800mAh battery.

The G5 also boasts a bundle of premium-class specs, including a 5.3-inch Quad HD (1440p) IPS Quantum display that scores a blinding 800nit brightness (many of its rivals settle for 400-500 nits). Additionally, it features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 quad-core 2.1GHz CPU alongside 4GB of RAM and Adreno 530 graphics, while its 32GB on-board storage can go up to a gigantic 2000GB capacity via its microSD card support. Another pro for this MWC 2016 model is its dual-rear-camera concept (16- and 8-megapixel cams), with features like 8x digital zooming, 135-degree wide angle shooting, and laser autofocus in tow.

Finishing touches include a trendy USB Type-C interface, a fingerprint reader, and an 8-megapixel front-facing sub-camera for selfies.

Also known as: LG G-5, LG VS987, LG H850 (UK).
