You can choose the phone in 3 different color: titan, silver and gold. We’ve chosen the gold one:

As you can see, the screen is clean and sharp and the quality of the image is high resolution. The following picture is the first time we see the phone without the protection plastic:

It’s very user friendly and fast and the battery has been lasting 2 days and a half (with 24h WiFi plus data connections and using the camera, Facebook and Twitter), while the complete charge takes less than 45 minutes. This video shows how the LG G5 sounds, how to unlock it, how to insert the cards and how to open the battery case to insert more modules:

The operative system is Android v6.0.1 (Marshmallow), and as it is shown in the video, you can unlock it with your fingerprint.

There are three main modules that you can buy separately and add: the HiFi Plus sound, the Camera Plus  and the LG360Cam modules. The 360 camera can be used for pictures and videos and you can also use it with iOS devices. Depend on your hobbies/job and what you want to get from your phone, you can leave it as it comes or add any of these modules.

In conclusion, this phone can perfectly compete with Samsung and iPhone, and the price is more than £100 lower. In our opinion: a great smartphone!
