LG G5 has 4GB of RAM and is powered by 2.15 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. Its camera is equipped with 16-megapixel primary camera and 8-megapixel front camera, ideal for selfie-addicts. It is installed with Android 6.0.1 and has removable battery of 2800mAh.

They can also choose from three available colours: gold, titanium and silver.
Apart from general specifications, LG G5 stands apart owing to the following features:
- Look n Feel: To start with, the model consists of a pure metal body along with a rear shell and separate frame. It has a slightly curved metal shell at the rim. The separate frames make it bulky and slightly outdated, as compared to the sleek designs and appeal of other brands. The phone has a screen of 5.3“, and is too big to hold flexibly in hands. It come with a dual-camera setup at the back along with flash, colour sensor and laser autofocus window. The fingerprint sensor is quicker, more flexible and accurate for unlocking device.
- Software: LG G5 is installed with Android Marshmallow 6.0.1and LG’s Optimus UI 5.0 at the top. The phone has single-layered user-interface with professionally designed software. Users can easily switch to dual-layer user-transference. They can also enjoy second screen controller and have good access to major sections of their device. There is a wonderful screen called Smart Bulletin, which can be activated through Settings apps in order to receive instant accessibility directly from home screens to the health tracker, calendar, quick remote app and other sections.
- Performance: LG G5 delivers fantastic performance with the most powerful smartphone SoCs. It has 4GB of RAM, which makes multi-tasking possible. Even while using resource-heavy applications like Web Browsers, with many open tabs or playing graphically rigorous games; booting, opening other games and apps happen immediately. However, there are minor heat problems with the device especially while playing games or heavy usage. Rigorous use of device affects battery-life due to the high-resolution screen, which consumes good amount of power. Overall, it is steady and convenient to use.
- Camera & Sensors: LG G5 has dual-camera setup along with 16-MP main sensor and 8-MP support sensor. Rear cameras have the capacity to shoot up to 2160p 30fps videos whereas front cameras can shoot up to 1080p 30fps videos. The back camera has a special feature of slow motion mode, thereby increasing the frame rate to 60fps at full-HD resolution. Camera software is excellently designed with a comfortable layout and structure including all the important buttons that users would generally require.
The device comes with various installed sensors such as proximity sensors, barometer, ambient light sensor, compass/magnetometer, accelerometer and gyroscope. Temperature sensors are not present.
With all such wonderful features, LG G5 is available at SGD750. Although it’s quite expensive, however the kind of experience delivered in incomparable to any other smartphone device, of this range. Its in-build quality is desirable. Since there is a big difference in alignment between the body of the device and its module, it appears to be slightly poorly designed. Apart from this, the entire experience of browsing and interactivity makes it a must-have for all.
