6 things we would like to see in the LG G5
posted by Paul K. / Jan 26, 2016, 7:44 AM
The LG G4 was a handset that really managed to stand out with its leather back cover, curved profile, great camera, and being one of the few remaining popular Android flagships that still offer a user-removable battery and microSD card slot. Despite all this, the smartphone still didn't sell as well as one might guess, but LG won't let itself get disheartened. In fact, the rumor mill is spinning crazy with reports about the new G5 coming with an innovative metal design, with a “drawer” for its battery, an iris scanner, and a dual camera setup on its back. Now, we're not saying that any of these rumors are true, though it's pretty obvious that something's brewing in LG's kitchen and the ovens are hot.
So, as the first wave of 2016 flagship announcements is about to hit us in the following months, we can't help but have a wishlist of what features we'd like to see preserved / improved / removed / altered in the upcoming smartphones. So, with that being said, here are the 6 things we'd like to see in the LG G5.
- Display 5.3" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 16 MP / 8 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, Quad-core, 2200 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2800 mAh(25h talk time)

I actually think LG Ui looks decent except the setting app.

I agree i have the g3 the ui is decent far from the best. But the battery life sucks a big one ever since the lolipop update the battery has been trash!! Post update battery was pretty good

LG's choices in design are actually quite impressive! Still, I believe they kind of exagerrate with their large screen sizes.

design is very impressive but the choice of material is very bad. They have used cheap looking plastic in plastic model and cheap looking leather in leather model. It is totally their fault, they didnt use premium looking plastic. I love V10 bcoz it look pretty premium as compared to G4. I hope they will control the over exposure in camera software. Over blown sky in most photos in auto mode.

I do hope the rumor isnt true that the vol and power buttons go back to the side and the fingerprint sensor on the back.

So happy with my g4, i was an owner of the s3 and i was waiting for the s6, but non removable battery and non sd card was a deal breaker, I'm very satisfied with my g4 with 128gb card and waiting for an hypothetical "g6" g5 very soon for me.

Most important is they keep the removable battery, hopefully with improved battery life, next I would choosw to keep buttons on the back and to improve the screen colors to be more natural.

I had the V10 and returned it and when back to my S6 Edge+. Touchwiz has stepped it up and is better than LG's. LG's is a mess with different shapes and colors. They need to get it together for the G5. Also the battery stamina was unacceptable. Step it up LG!
