If this is the LG G5, do you like what you see?
Week in, week out, we've been getting intel on LG's next flagship, the G5. Whether rumors, specific hardware characteristics, or just design leaks, it's fair to say that LG seemingly failed to keep its next big thing under wraps. Case in point: Just earlier today, a seemingly legit-looking LG G5 was spotted on a Emirati e-commerce site, complete with packaging and all.

Obviously, there's no telling if this is the real deal until we see LG execs unveil the G5 for the world to see at its February 21st event in Barcelona. That said, it won't be the first time that we get a glimpse of a major device days ahead of its announcement. If what we see does end up being the G5, what say you, do you dig the new design? What do you like or dislike about it? Let us know by leaving a comment below!

If this is the LG G5, do you like what you see?

I don't like it. Even though LG used for sure premium material, it does not look premium at all. A two color front side? No way! The back does not look elegant at all.

Doesn't matter, pretend premium like all these other phones like the iPhone are not worth it either. If you are paying for the materials, then you are stupid because Aluminium is cheap as hell. Looks overall are what matter, in which case if it looks "good" all is well. Looking "premium" is a much sought after prize by poor people who can't afford actual premium and want to feel rich.

I'm fine with a protruding camera, but that protruding fingerprint scanner is just plain nasty

absolutely... if this is G5, then it is gonna be a pretty ugly device... using metal doesnt mean that people will start loving it automatically. There should be a nice design as well

The back reminds me of the HTC Evo 3D!

ugly as hell. Looking like a soap bar to take a bath. I will need a nice cover to put on it. I hope camera and battery life will be great.

Crap this removing battery crap, I take s7 edge with 3600 battery and a wiresless battery case, and ip68 and Samsung battery saving tech

Meh, but it will come in other colors too. I guess I'd like a kind of black back. I like the front

@PA @Chris P. The next poll should be - Considering the leaked G5's looks and the leaked specs, are you still more excited about G5 than S7/S7 Edge

It looks like a feature phone from 2006.

Precisely, premium materials or not, G4/3/2/1 looked better.

Maybe with a different color back it will look ok. But man is that one hideous looking phone.

Ugly and hate it. Bring back the LG2 optimus design, with rectangular boxy looks.

That's a seriously ugly phone and the first thing I'd do is put a case on that pig.

Design is very different but safe at the same time the, v10 was a bit more extreme so I would expect them to go as extreme on the g5. overall it looks okay but not beautiful. would I buy it if its a great phone absolutely
