Officially confirmed: LG G5 features an Always On Display mode
posted by Florin T. / Feb 09, 2016, 7:39 PM
This always on screen feature, which is already available in slightly different implementations on Motorola smartphones (called Active Display), as well as on Google's latest Nexus handsets (called Ambient Display), will likely also be found on Samsung's Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge - both of which are going to be announced on the same day as the LG G5.
The image revealing LG's new Always ON feature - embedded below - also shows an outline of the G5 itself, allowing us to speculate that the previously leaked LG G5 diagrams and renders (see here, here, and here) may have been accurate.
It's said that the LG G5 will be significantly different from its predecessors (G4 and G3), as the handset is reportedly made out of metal, while offering a fingerprint scanner and a dual rear camera.

You can see the lines from the back on the sides, I can not see how this phone is going to have a removing battery But it will have type c USB and all the lead problems this will be linked to, thats100%, it's the one thing I do not like about my 6p Not 100% on why you buy this phone over the nexus 6p,

That pixel resolution. Even Motorola has better always on screen than this.

Rather have low res and higher stamina. Let's also hope that it's a oled screen.

I like LG's G series phones, but they have absolutely horrid resale value. I always buy my phones outright and get a new phone every year so that makes LG a non-starter for me.

Unless it's oled I don't even care, if you want my money..... Go OLED

If they want my money, they need to actually make a good phone this time around because the G3, G4, and V10 have been terrible.

My G3 has been the best phone I've ever used. 160GB storage, 6,000mAH battery in a very slim bezel package. Coupled with double-tap to wake and a very quick custom firmware, it's up there as one of the best.
