LG's "Friends" website will help you find the places near you where you can buy LG G5 accessories

Good news today for LG G5 owners. The website that lists all of the accessories for the manufacturer's flagship phone and tells you where you can buy them, is now live. The site includes all of those extras that LG calls "Friends." For example, the LG Cam Plus turns your phone into a digital camera with a new grip, a shutter button, 1200mAh of additional battery life, and more. This Friend is currently available online from T-Mobile for $69.99.

The LG Hi-Fi Plus with B&O Play enhances the audio on your phone. Currently, it is not offered in the U.S., but can be bought in the U.K., Korea and the UAE. The LG 360 VR is a compact 360 degree VR headset. As its name implies, the LG 360 Cam allows you to take 360 degree pictures (using two 13MP fish eye lens). It can be ordered from T-Mobile's online store for $199.99.

The unique design of the LG Tone Platinum allows you to enjoy 24-bit Wi-Fi sound. The Balanced Armature of the earphones allows for true audio reproduction. And with the use of the Tone and Talk app (available for iOS and Android), LG Tone Platinum users can make voice memos, and answer or decline calls all using their voices in conjunction with the LG Tone Platinum. The latter, by the way, is not yet available in any country.

The last Friend for now is the LG Rolling Bot. This is a robot that is shaped like a ball. When you're away, it monitors your house and sends photos back to the owner's smartphone. Whether you're inside or outside your home, the Rolling Bot will turn on or off your electronics and A/C. It also can be used as a plaything for your pets. This also will be coming soon.

LG says a lot more new Friends will be coming out in the future. Meanwhile, you can click on the slideshow to see what kind of company your LG G5 can be hanging around with.

LMAO @ pic 7. If I dislike one thing about LG it would be their misleading advertising. I can't remember how many times in past 3 years they have done this. They should fire their marketing department since they clearly don't know what they are doing.

They are showing the difference between QHD and 1080. There is a big difference between the two especially if you use VR. I just want a friend or module with a Raspberry Pi Zero with an extra battery. Or some other boards like an Arduino Nano. Then I can use the G5 as the window to those boards. Have a power on/off button in the module as well.

No, there is not a big difference between 1080p and QHD. it's only 1.7 times. According to the pics, it's like 5-6x difference. Not to mention the pic desaturated the 1080p one. Really cheap marketing from LG.

these friends are too expensive! 160GBP for the Hi-Fi module, and 60 for the battery/camera grip?!!! I am very much less interested in the phone now

I heard in one of the reviews that the build quality of the LG G5 is not good. it was so thin. I am not gonna buy it anyway.

gg LG...I applaud you for being the first modular device, but I am far interested in the s7/HTC 10.
