LG G5 – Modular Innovative Flagship Smartphone
With a lot of things happening in the Android and iOS world, things were quite for LG before the last week. LG has been an innovative company but has never tasted success as far as the smartphones are concerned.
LG made the first flexible screen smartphone the LG G Flex, but it did not take off.
As per the LG India Marketing Head Mr. Amit Gujaral, the smartphone is going to get launched in India in April 2016.
Wait for a second they made the Google Nexus 5 and the Nexus 5X, awww they are successful, but does the credit goes to Google brand name and marketing. I guess so. The last LG G4 was promising really promising, one of the best Camera smartphones.
Why it failed was it the offbeat Faux Leather design was it the exclusion of Snapdragon 810 or unfriendly user experience or lack of right marketing and noise which LG failed to create in the market. The smartphone was good, but could not sell as many units as LG would have pleased.
But Now LG has the new LG G5 with more expectations and some really cool features which makes this year’s flagship innovative and a good example of out of box thinking in an otherwise sheepish thinking market.
LG G5 Top Features and Details
LG G5 comes with the top of the line processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 that is also used in the Samsung S7 and S7 edge. The LG G5 comes with 4 GB of LP DDR4 version of high-speed Ram and will come in 32 GB, 64 GB storage variants.
The screen size is 5.3 inches and comes with a 2K (Quad HD Display with 2560*1440) resolution.
The display comes with an always-on feature which will allow you to see the time, date and notifications whenever you glance at the display. LG has done this smartly to ensure there is no battery drain due to the lighting of certain areas of the display on the new LG G5.
The camera on the LG G5 comes with a Dual Camera setup at the back, there is a 13 Mega Pixel + 8 Megapixel camera which works simultaneously to capture the best possible images. It also features an 8 Megapixel front camera to take selfies.
The Faux leather back cover is gone and it has a metallic finish which makes the smartphone look more like this year’s Google Nexus 6P.

The smartphone also has a Fingerprint scanner at the back of the device below the Dual Camera setup. The smartphone comes with 2800 mAH battery capacity (removable) which is a bit lower than the rival Samsung S7 which offers 3000 mAH battery capacity.
