Fleshed out LG G5 peeks through these case makers' renders

It's a shame they moved the volume buttons to the side.

in my opinion, it is a great move. I feel it plain ugly to have volume and power button on the back. So, it is a personal prefference

But as far as I know, the power button is still on the back in the fingerprint sensor.

yup! So LG is trying to make both of us half happy. All buttons on the back, I will not like and all buttons on the side, you will not like. Now at least there is something for both of us.

haha usually when a product is trying to please everyone, it ends up pleasing no one.

you are absolutely right. It can become jack of all and master of none.

I think that it's a good decision. At least for me it's easier to operate volume buttons on the side than on the back of the phone.

capacitive volume button above and below the fingerprint scanner for me

Yeah I found the rear button placement perfect. The up button I mapped to flashlight and the down button launched the camera. It worked very well and easily with one hand. I don't think the same functions would be as quickly accessible with the new side placement.

this news and photos are making rounds on other websites since yesterday. PA is very late to the party.

In my opinion smartphones looks better without logo in the front.

That's the best part of I phone design.
But this leak again is fake!

They should put only the LG logo at the back and make it shine like the apple logo.

Am I the only one who's seeing front facing speakers on pic 10?
7. DoggyDangerous (Posts: 764; Member since: 28 Aug 2015)
You are not.
pic 10 & 11 are indeed showing some sort of grills on the edges. And it is looking like stereo speakers. But the problem is this that pic #1, 2 and 3 are showing different front than 10 and 11. So, we cannot trust on these leaks.

A G5 finals can look back except to render a prototype. It is good that LG has managed to conceal many things and the fans will be more to look forward G5, just let it spoil battery.
12. DoggyDangerous (Posts: 764; Member since: 28 Aug 2015)
LG is doing a good job of concealing full information, but they are more likely to do a bad job of putting a small battery. G3, G4 and V10, all sucks in On screen time.

Every thing looks great..Hopefully it brings back the LG G2 BATTERY LIFE!

Too me it looks better or on par with the s6 or 6s or even the s7 renders that poped up.

I like it, but i've never been a fan of any buttons on the back. I leave my phone on my desk all day and just touch the Note5 fingerprint sensor to turn it on without picking it up.
My personal choice would be touch sensors all along both edges of the phone that could record multiple fingers as soon as you pick it up. The edge strips would also allow for volume swiping or other custom input gestures. It would have the Moto flexible display with a glass screen protector, and the cover would only wrap the corners and not all the edges.
