LG Class, the company's first metal-clad Android, gets unboxed and previewed
LG Class, the company's intriguing "premium" metal phone that is set at affordable price, has now received the unboxing treatment in all of its 4K glory. The slim metal 5-incher carries 720 x 1280 pixels resolution, and is covered by 2.5D glass layer that is slightly curved at the edges.

The Class is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, coupled with 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable storage space. There's a 13 MP camera on the back, while on the front the budget phone with premium build has a generous 8 MP selfie camera. As far as connectivity, the LG Class has you covered with LTE bands, NFC, and Bluetooth 4.1. 

The handset is pretty compact at 142 x 71.8 x 7.4 mm, with 147 grams of weight, which include the sealed 2050 mAh battery. LG has graced the back with its signature 1W speaker system, for your boombox needs.  The LG Class will hit Korean carriers this month for around $339 without subsidies, but hopefully we will see it outside of LG's home turf, too. Check out its unboxing video below, and tell us what you think about its chassis design.

The A5 is actually a very decent phone that proof that specifactions arent everything. A friend of mine has one and it looks goods, performs decent and takes good images. It may not be for the intensive user. But it is not a really bad deal at 300 euros (price in the Netherlands).

Small battery capacity for a 5 inch sized phone.

The battery is small, the phones are getting thinner and therefore weaker batteries, for example Samsung Galaxy s6 and iphone 6s

339$ for a low end spec'd phone while moto x style with 50$ more can be bough with flagship specs and not to mention moto x play which is still better specced and same price. LG is proving each year how retarded they are.

MEH... Very expensive and ugly looking IMO. I would never pay a premium price for any LG devise ( Way to many bad experiences) but this is way to expensive even for a LG fan. The specs arnt much to write home about.

LMFAO, how can they call it class when the boxing is so cheap, all the accessories are lying scattered around like it was an afterthought.
