LG G5 official promo videos are out

Posted: , by Victor H.

The cat is out of the bag: the LG G5 is indeed as radical of a change in smartphones as it gets. It features a new battery swap system that allows you to not only change batteries in seconds, but also use the slot to connect a separately sold camera module and Hi-Fi audio module. It also comes with 'Friends', a set of accessories that easily connect to the phone and use it as a hub to control them.

It also features an innovative new 5.3" display with Always-on mode, has the powerful Snapdragon 820 system chip on board and an innovative new dual camera system on the back, where the secondary camera shoots wider pictures.

LG has now released the first promo videos for the G5, showcasing all of its awesome, radical new features. Take a look right below.

For me, the unique features far outweighs the not so good design

absolutely, it has a potential. Dual camera can be further optimized to do nice tricks.

Better a few Gagdets to play with than just a little a bit thinner, little bit better camera, better processor, more ram and the same boring stuff.

G5's bezel is so thick and ugly even LG had to minimize it in their promo vids.

Also is.very misleading as the ads do not show all the turn off and turn on crap when you change the ends

Comments section at EVERY phone unveiling:

"ugliest phone ever"
"bye bye LG"

If they didnt bring premium material they get bashed...
If they dont bring removable battery...
No sd card slot....
Phone is too big, phone is too small...
OMG no fingerprint scanner...
Software is too bloated...


LG brings everything the "customer" (idiots in the comments section) ask for and you still have a bunch of winy a** little bit*ches

I may or may not get this device. But, it checks a lot of boxes for me.

Great part about Android is choices. If you choose that this device is not for you then dont buy it. Simple.

Props to LG though for listening!!!

If one of your boxes was removing battey why?

As the Samsung s7 edge, you get a Bigger size screen but a better in the hand phone, you get a bigger battery removing the over time damage with ease and without turning the phone off, if you running out of battery you just put that wiresless battery charger CASE on and singing in the rain

Too many accessories to bring. Don't think this will do well.

I think that the "360 camera" is actually an htc re camera, if not, then they got the same design

Pretty neat idea. I can Imagine a module that transforms a SmartPhone like this into a Tablet...more ideas for you Panos Panay, make Surface Phone (or it's future gnerations) extremely awesome.
