It's actually not that bad . Growing on me for sure.

The day they take the buttons from onscreen to capacitive-on-body is the day I'll consider LG again. No offense, just can't stand wasting screen space for those things.

Not a fan of this at all. Looks very cheap and ugly. I wish we could get away from the camera bump on the back of phones... Just make the whole thing thicker with a larger battery, cmon! I have also found the fingerprint scanner located on the back of a phone to be near useless.

My opinion might change but i dont like the bottom bezel being a different color than the top, i saw this in the samsung j3, but other than that it looks good

LG's 2016 TVs look striking in and out and yet we are left with the non-inspiring design of the G5. Please tell me they are trolling us all with those leaks..

Omg fingerprint sensor hump. Also, always on display, mostly black wallpaper, is the G5 going to have OLED? I hope so

if this turned out to be true, i will be really really disappointed. what was LG thinking? LG G4 is the best phone, design-wise from LG. now this is even uglier than their old phones, and bezels are a HUGE step back.

I'd say it's better that we don't talk about bezels until the phone is official, but, since the G2 every LG flagship has had bigger bezels than the previous one and I really hoped that the G5 would break that trend.

You have a tunnel vision, think about improving performance. Beauty cannot cook!!

That LG logo is so ugly, why not just put LG on there, why that horrible logo as well ? Better still move it to the back, lots of space there.

My co worker loves the buttons on the back but hates this new design. Hey phone arena. I can't post over LTE. Fix this crap already. Either you are incompetent or just a** h****. Given you the benefit of the doubt your not a** h****. May just have to stick with Android Central. A great group of tech people who know their stuff.

I actually don't mind the look, pretty good and distinguishable from the crowd.

Looks good for me, at least a new design. Looking forward for a review of this phone.
