Com'on man. Let's be a little more objective here and do not let fanboyism overrule the truth. I think the cheap iPhone 6, as well as the new iPods, copied the design of Nokia Lumia, not Ativ S as you mentioned. S7 sides do look very similar to iPhone 6s sides. It looks like Samsung has decided to go curvy on the side frames for S7. This is given that the leaked materials are correct, of course.

Well actually if you like at the latest leaks the side of the S7 actually isn't completely curved either due to the curved glass back. The sides looks like the sides of the Note 5

In that case I am okay with it.

The bottom of both iphone 6s and s6 looks identical. this was specially highlighted in mkbhd's s6 review (compared s6 with ip6)

Why do people care so much about the metallic s**t? Metallic doesn't always equal premium and plastic doesn't always equal cheap. For you metallic-frantic people, here's a proof that polycarbonate platic (material found in phones like Microsoft Lumia 950, OnePlus 2 etc.) actually costs 3 times more than aluminum: https://www.google.com/#q=polycarbonate+price+er+poundhttps://www.google.com/#q=aluminum+price+per+pound

The great thing about "looks" is everyone has their own preference. This may look cheap to some and may look awesome to others. We cannot deny the fact that it's "different" I applaud LG for making the move. Samsung's S7 is very safe looking and although it's the same design as the S6, many may agree that it has an elegant look to it. With that being said, looks aside, this phone will bring some cool things to the market with the magic slot. Now you want to talk about generic? M10 lol.

Looks like the magic slot is gonna be at the bottom like how earlier rumors suggested. You can clearly see the small gap at the bottom in the front and rear pictures.

I like the silver on the front, but it needs to be top and bottom. The industry went to solid black partially because it made the screen look larger and bezels smaller. But I like some styling on the front, black isn't really any style, it's nice but... hard to tell brands apart from the screen. The back is curved which is great and will probably feel good, but it looks so bland. It needs texture, or a pattern, or anodizing, some groves, almost anything at all to give it some LG design language. Stop making everything look like the pain old boring over used Apple design. This could be an 07 iPod or something from the back (minus the cam/reader).

Why does it look like the top of the screen is curved? I really dislike when graphic designers get their hands on things and start putting shading anywhere they please. If it wasn't rendered by CAD software, then it's not true to life, and I don't need to see it. But if it really is curved then I think it's cool and adds a little styling. Like the S6 Edge, it's useless but cool in my opinion.

How can a manufacturer who build gorgeous G3/G4/V10 build something look s**tty as hell like this??? That hump is eye-sore as f*ck damn. I wish this G5 fail so LG will know that this is not what we want.

This is a cheap quality dummy version of the phone. The final product should look nice and polished. Cant wait to see it this Sunday.

I think it looks good. I'm just upset they put the volume buttons on the side. I have the lg g3 and it was convenient for me. Still can't wait for them to officially announce it though!

OK guys this is 99% fake as hell :D check the quick cover sensor placement next to the ear piece. it isn't there in these pics so its definitely not the g5.

Posts: 1028; Member since: Aug 28, 2015

you are right. Sensor is on the right side of ear piece in previous leaks. But in these pics, it is on the bottom of ear speaker. Either this leak is correct or that rear cover leak is correct or G5 might have two variants.

Wow, fat bezels and no front facing speakers. LG just pulled an Apple.

what happen to the design i was hoping that they'll continue with an even better leather-metal combo design cue for uniqueness but then it looks unusually unintresting :( i hope this is just a dream!!!!

The back looks like the iphone 6..so whats the big fuzz about it being ugly..to me its looks just fine..its metal and the leaks wont show the shinnes of it.

I'm gonna reserve judgement until we get more in person eyes on this. Remember how damn ugly the Nexus 6P was in the first pictures we saw? It *might* be the same thing here.

The past design is very nice This one is a stepdown i think And also OP2 is also best design last year

Funny how people keep saying this is ugly. The same was said about the Nexus 6P before it was launched and now people love its looks. I'll wait to see the official device when they make the announcement. So far this is looking like the device to replace my V10.

In white it looks kind of similar to the Nexus 5x.
