The LG G5 is one of the finest smartphones to come from the LG stable in recent years.
However, it is soon set to be replaced by the LG G6, as the phone is set for a launch in February at the Mobile World Congress. As a result, it is probably a great time to buy the LG G5 and the latest deals from the South Korean company once again confirm this fact.
The phone will be available for $400 from NewEgg and Amazon, while it is priced at $450 on B&H Photo Video. The latter, however, comes with a $50 gift card while also not attracting any sales tax for all residents apart from those in the New York State. It should be remembered that the device is not compatible with the Sprint network, but can be used on T-Mobile, Verizon, and AT&T.
The LG G5 comes with a 5.5-inch screen that has a 2K resolution making it one of the rich screens out there. The pixel density of 554 PPI may be insanely even when compared with phones that have launched in the last few months. The IPS panel technology continues to make it one of the best screens in terms of brightness and viewing angles.
In terms of the speed, the phone actually uses one of the fastest clock speeds of 2.15 GHz on the snapdragon 820 chipset. As in the case of every other quad core smartphone, only the two main cores run at this pace while there are two more cores running at 1.6 GHz in clock speed. Similar to other smartphones that have the snapdragon 820 processor, the LG G5 has an Adreno 530 GPU. The use of 4 GB of RAM makes it quite adept at multitasking.
The presence of only 32 GB of internal storage may be a bit of a downer, but it is possible to use microSD cards of up to 256 GB in either of the SIM slots. In supporting microSD cards on both SIM slots, the LG G5 is one of the few phones to offer two hybrid slots at once.
After pioneering with the laser autofocus technology a few generations ago, LG has improved the camera on the LG G5 even more. It is now a dual 16-megapixel camera which is assisted by elements like optical image stabilization. The front camera has an eight-megapixel sensor with 1080p video recording capabilities.
