LG G5 Specs Review: Life's Good in Wide Angle and VRBy Anita Valencia, UniversityHerald Reporter
A few weeks after it's announced at the Mobile World Congress; LG G5 quickly garnered attentions and praises. Many of the features are noteworthy and here's a full review!
LG G5 specs review: design
The full-metal G5 sports 5.3 inch QHD screen protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. LG insists on Not using AMOLED thus it affects screen brightness in low light condition. However, we should thank the 554 ppi pixel density for helping this matter.
It weighs 159 grams with dimensions of 149.4 x 73.9 x 7.7 mm, as listed in GSM Arena. It's sleek and solid though not so slim. LG is one of the smartphone makers who follow the trend. It's a wise move to finally switch from plastic to metal body.

The flagship runs Android Marshmallow and you can expect many other great components including Bluetooth 4.1, VR compatibility and fast battery charging for its removable 2,800 mAh. G5 is the first LG's flagship to use fingerprint sensor.
LG G5 review: camera
Moving on to its camera, LG G5 offers quite an impressive image quality from its primary lens. The 16 MP camera is equipped with LED flash and autofocus. The second camera offers 8 MP quality. What's even better about the camera is that it captures great pictures with its 135 degrees wide-angle in dual rear camera.
LG G5 is launched with Friends - the module accessories that you can play with. One of them is the CAM Plus - which allows users to experience traditional camera feel. The versatile module can be attached to LG G5 - offering firm grip and extra battery power of 1,200 mAh.
LG very-owned 360 VR headset is another entertainment to add when you want to watch VR contents. These Friends make the smartphone not so ordinary given the multi-function tools.
