These are the best LG G5 cases so far

You've probably heard the news: the LG G5 is now official and is the company's new flagship smartphone. What's special about it is the so-called Modular Design, which allows one to expand the phone's functionality by attaching a different module, all while retaining the removable battery and microSD card slot. Also, that secondary wide-angle camera is a neat addition to the phone's photography package. But there's one more thing that sets the LG G5 apart from many LG phones before it – its full-metal design.

Indeed, metal is durable and feels nice to the touch, hence metal-made phones are usually perceived as premium devices. But unbreakable it is not. Despite its metal body, the LG G5 is still vulnerable to scratches and accidental drops. That is why putting it in a protective case might be a good idea.

For those of you thinking of getting an LG G5, we've put together some of the best LG G5 cases that have been announced so far. But do keep in mind that these will need to be taken off if you need to attach a module to the handset.

So alot of these cases are useless if you want to use the B and O amp module?

So much hatred for a great smartphone. Sad to see no one gives a f*** about innovation anymore. Keep running behind sammy's and the apples! :D

At least the case helps hide how ugly the back of the phone is.

I guess the very fact you need a "Protective Case " for a Metal Phone means your definition of "Build Quality" Is in Fact Inaccurate! Lamborghini's and Ferrari's aren't made of These So Called "Premium Materials" but I guess they would be "Premium" to those who don't know what "Premium" is. I wish you writers understand the difference. Noah shouldn't have NEVER coined that phrase..Bad misconception. As for this Phone.. The Cases and Case Manufacture have a Golden Opportunity to take this phone to another level by adding Modular Features into their cases for extra battery life, Solar charger,Stereo/Surround Sound Speakers, Other Camera access, and others they can think of to tunr this phone into a Monster Beast. But Again, it will make or break will the imagination and on board manufacturers( or lack there of)... Nice phone though wish they kept the back volume buttons tho.

" Lamborghini's and Ferrari's aren't made of These So Called Premium Materials " they're using premium material, they use lots of carbonfiber, and they also use one of the best material for interior, diskbrake, and technically everything.. but their outer body is really fragile (at least their frame is strong enough to keep the driver save (still overpriced tough..)

Rather than getting G5, u must consider that LG has a good impression about its buggy software . So must wait for about 2-3weeks untill someone gives a good review on it.

Of course I will wait for the reviews. I am not a kid and my hormones are not boiling high to jump to grab one.

It does look somewhat better with a case. Takes care of the camera hump nicely.

The problem with most of the cases is that they look cool and premium in pictures. But when you order it then you found out that they are not that premium looking and made your phone feel pretty cheap. Whats the point of making the phone with metal(G5) or glass(S7), when you are going to cover it anyway? Phones look pretty great in naked.

Buy Spigen or Caseology and you know it will look and feel premium. I agree phones look good naked but the G5 isn't the best looking phone tho. I'm rocking that Spigen ultra hybrid tech(It's clear) on my 6s plus looks great and feels great, best case I've ever owned.
