LG’s new flagship G5 has already made its mark in MWC by its simplicity and functionality. As it hits the market, it sure is going to stir some beans and change the way smartphone wars have till now were fought.
5.3” Quad HD resolution display, having approximately 554ppi. L has been successful in striking the perfect size for the screen. The screen can be used with one hand, while not sacrificing content delivering quality. The IPS LCD screen has commendable viewing angles. The videos and gaming experience is good to view due to higher contrast and sharpness. The display has always-on capability.
The 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with Adreno 530 gives a really smooth performance while multitasking as well as heavy processes of games. The phone works very smoothly throughout, even after being exposed to heavy multi-tasking including downloading, video viewing and games.
The phone has a RAM of 4GB with built-in memory of 32GB, of which user available memory is 23GB. It has a slot for expandable memory upto 256GB, throwing the flagships which don’t have one, out of the competition.
The build of LG G5 is premium, with and aluminium body, and a seamless design. The phone feels like a plastic phone though, due to intense coating on the metal body. The Power button has been replaced by a fingerprint sensor on the back. USB-C standard has been provided alongside which is the microphone and single bottom-firing speaker, and the latter is surprisingly impressive for a single mono speaker. The battery is replaceable, an uncommon feature in flagships. Gorilla Glass 4 protects from scratches on front. The battery is low on amperage compared to other phones, which is just 2800 mAh. Atleast 3000 mAh battery must be supplied, seeing to needs of bigger screen and more processor cores.
The phone features dual camera, a 16MP f/1.8 and a wide aperture 8MP camera. The 16.0 MP camera delivers clarity and fast shutter speed. Exposure of the lens is very high, thus giving it advantage in lower light. But sometimes the photos do get overexposed. The 8.0 MP camera is seriously stunning as it lets one capture a really wide imagery, like scenery and large group photos. The front camera is also 8.0 MP and offers adequate brightness even in low-light, great for selfies.
The operating system is Android 6.0 Marshmallow with an LG skin, and thus lacks a App Drawer in default. Multi-tasking is as smooth as a breeze. The camera software has DSLR like control options in manual mode. The Dual window options have been removed from the OS which were a good feature in the earlier LG firmwares, which leads to not so apt usage of the multi core power provided to the phone.
The battery is replaceable and the phone features a modular design called “Freinds” which helps the phone include some exquisite features for example a camera extension, which gives dedicated camera controls and extended battery, or a sound extension.
The phone proves how a simplistic design, focus on performance, ravishing camera and software and innovation thrown in, can get an MWC phone of the year recognition, clearly giving other flagships a run for their money.
