LG have finally announced the much anticipated LG G5 it is the companies first modular device,while it does not look great it even with its curved edges it looks rather boring it has potential in the long run. It comes with “Friends” or to be simple plug ins which are additional modules that can be later added to the device,not everyone’s cup of tea module devices but surely for some it will be welcome. There is a range of other companion devices to that has come to surface.- 360 CAM,360 VR,ROLLING BOT,TONE PLATINUM,SMART CONTROLLER and H3 by B&O Play. It will be interesting to see if any of our networks take this on board,having not seen the G3 or G4 it doubt it very much,LG have improved tremendously over the last two years with their handsets on offer but this one is different not for all.It is to go on sale in the UK and networks are already taking the usual register your interest approach already.

“The new LG G5 will encourage owners to rediscover the true joy of a mobile life,” said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “The G5 ecosystem is the result of many experts inside LG asking themselves if it was still possible to be innovative and unique in the smartphone space. I think once customers spend a little time with the LG G5, their answer will be a resounding YES.”

Encased in a sleek all metal body design and slide-out battery to easily swap out a used battery for a fully charged one in seconds, the LG G5 surpasses the visual experience of its predecessor, the LG G4. First, the G5’s 135-degree wide angle lens lets you choose between standard or wide angle lens to get more in the shot. Second, the Always-on Display makes notifications just a glance away with the time, date and more available anytime without waking the G5. Third, the 3D Arc Glass featured in the smartphone’s 5.3-inch display creates a gentle curve and a smooth metal surface using Micro-Dizing techniques. Plus the G5’s camera and home button on the back cover are seamlessly integrated into the main body without the use of insulation tape for strong signal reception.
