For a slight second i maybe tought to consider LG G5 vs S7 Edge , but no f**k that , i aint paying high end money for ugly phone , no matter the spec because S7 WILL deliver + water resistant + if i regret buying S7 at least its beautifull.

Yea, I don't really like this design, looks cheap.

taking the crown of the most beautiful design is very difficult. So LG is trying to take the crown of ugly design. again looking very ugly. I hope lg will not drop the ball on camera sensor. Samsung already cheap out by putting 1/2.5" sensor.

I actually think it looks slightly better than the previous leaks but it's still ugly as hell.

"The LED flash and fingerprint scanner are both visible" Where? They are missing. Is Just a chassis

Now it became "The holes for the LED flash assembly and fingerprint scanner are both visible"

But this is just an ugly protective case right?!

Its starting to grow on me. The white one looks best so far, strong colors like red, blue and deep black would look much better.
One interesting thing is that the cameras and finger print scanner doesn't seem to stick out much at all on this chassi.

The slot is probably just a part of the chassi, not any electronics in it. If you look at the lower right side of it you see a small opening, probably for a button to remove the bottom.

Oh wow ...Okay, let's see how they'll spin this one.

That case doesn't look the best, hopefully that is a case or something

A few more carefully placed holes and that could look like a Storm Trooper helmet, and that would be a phone I'd buy.

Damn, even my Bello looks better. It appears G5 is just an experiment, to see if people will accept the fancy new battery / expansion slot system.

G2/G3/G4, hell even the V10, had such nice designs......what the heck happened?
I admit, this back panel with the circles in the camera area looks much better than a completely black open area like we've seen on previous G5 leaks.
But just....overall, I feel like this is a gigantic step back from their previous designs. Keep the back buttons, embed a fingerprint scanner into the power/lock button, beef up the internals, better camera, and go with all metal design with removable battery magic slot thingy. Perfect evolution of the G4 right there.

I hope using some case will help. I really don't like the back panel it's much worse than iphone antena lines.

This is even uglier then the 6p back and it's pretty ugly.

Q1 smartphones that have new designs, are riding the ugly ass design train smh.
34. BobbyDigital (Posts: 1861; Member since: 29 May 2014)
I like the looks. Just that color doesn't do it for me. The black or white version will probably be much sexier. Especially the black. Looks like the Nexus 5x.
I remember when all anyone said about the Nexus 6P was how ugly it looked before launch. Now everyone loves it.

Omg. They just can't design any good phones at all don't they? This is ugly as f**k
