The G5 is the greatest phone ever. I can't want to replace my Samsung S5 with the G5 and leave Samsuck behind after buying every one of their phones since 2009. Only an idiot buys a phone without a removable battery and SD.

Mate, Samsung offer a wiresless battery case with a bigger battery size than the removing battery of the G5, also the G5 battery that removes is linked to the end of the phone and can not be removed, I.e. It's very big unlike a normal removing battery With Samsung you also get the ip68, it's just better with the the wiresless chasing case S7 comes with sd support and ufs and will also transfer files faster than the lg phone and will also charge faster I.e. The G5 is doa ( you have to buy a case for the G5 or that metal will easy get damaged , but my s6 edge plus as no marks at all)

Ya it looks good, and considering it is not plastic and still has a removable battery its pretty cool

The removing. Battery is very big to take with you, better to have the wiresless chasing case for the s7 with a bigger battery size and ip68

Gosh your like a broken record. We get it, you love samsung. Not everyone does tho, let others pick what they like best and don't worry about it. Many times as you've repeated that line, starting to think you work for samsung.

It feels as if wine bottle wrapped in silver matte plastic layer. If you make few scratches or tears you can simply peal it off.

The G5 is my next phone. The people whining about the design of miniature tablet that you keep in protective case are pathetic and make me laugh .

Black will probably look gorgeous, silver (in the pic) not so much

At first glance at the front and I thought it was huawei g8. Not ugly but this smooth edge design language is so iphonic that it looks like a kid's toy for me. Now I'm liking v10 ang g4 leather design more.

the curve looks so good, I hope they put the fingerprint on that useles front bezel instead.

the bottom bezel comes off to replace the battery and to slot in other accessories. just how is it useless?

i dont think anyone noticed the updated image. the top bezel is clearly very less. There is a secondary display unnoticable in the other images. it looks much better than the other leaked images.

The bulges on the back remind me of the Galaxy Gear camera. LG is trying too hard to deviate itself in smartphone design that it's losing its sophistication. The G5 doesn't look near-flagship to me.

Ugh. The V10 looks better than this. This phone looks like a unfinished midranger.

The front of the device at the top is black. This makes it to look ugly. They have made the same mistake again. Why not all white or all silver?

It could be that the entire bottom part up to the bottom of the screen is part of the magic slot and can be removed, so it will be the color of whatever the slot is.

That looks so hideous. Hopefully we will see a better picture.

I usually care more about specs than looks but that is one seriously ugly phone.
