Customised Android 6.0 Marshmallow

The G5 runs the latest version of Google-en Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with some light customisation by LG.

For the most part it behaves like stock Android, but has a slightly different look to it. By default the launcher doesn’t come with the traditional Android app drawer full of all the installed apps, having all the apps on the homescreen as with iOS and Huawei’s EMUI, but it can be enabled in settings.

The left-most homescreen pane can also have LG’s smart bulletin feature, which acts as a widget holder, while the bottom touch buttons can be customised in colour, order and have more than the standard back, home and recently used apps buttons.

The G5 also has an always-on display mode, which shows the time and icons of recent notifications. It works well enough indoors, but is difficult to read outdoors and contributes around 1% battery consumption per hour. If you turn your phone screen on frequently to check the time it should help save power.

LG’s built-in maintenance app is also quite good at clearing out the cruft that builds up over time, but be careful as it’s quite easy to delete cache files that might be needed forcing them to be re-downloaded.

Fingerprint scanner and power button

The fingerprint scanner on the back is smaller than most other rear fingerprint scanners and also acts as the power button. I found that it was not quite as good at recognising my finger as that fitted to LG’s Nexus 5X, which it makes for Google. It was still quite fast, but was slightly less accurate.

Removable battery and accessories

The most interesting part of the G5 is its removable bottom. Press a button on the side and the bottom unhooks and slides out revealing the battery and a modular slot for adding what LG calls “Friends”.

Currently there are only two friends available for the G5. The £69 LG Cam Plus slots in the bottom with a camera shutter button, a video button and a jog wheel lining the stop of an added camera grip that also contains an extended battery.

B&O also has a £150 Hi-Fi Plus, which is a 32-bit digital to analogue converter (DAC) and headphone amp that is meant to improve the sound quality of the music you’re listening to on the phone. It can also be used as a standalone DAC with a computer or other device.

While I find neither compelling, the idea behind it is interesting. At the very least it allows users to swap out the battery; LG sells a spare with its own charger. Whether other companies with develop slot-in accessories is unknown at this stage. Although the system has potential, it will depend on the sales of the G5 to tempt companies.

Clipping the bottom in and out feels like inserting a magazine into a handgun, locking in place with a reassuring click and feeling solid. There is a constant gap at either side of the phone, ordea, and the lines on the side of the phone do not always align perfectly. Whether you’ll notice is another matter.

Kamera

Similar to the Huawei P9, the LG G5 has two cameras on the back, but instead of one being black and white, LG has fitted one regular 16-megapixel camera and one 8-megapixel wide-angle camera.

The regular camera is excellent and of similar quality to most of the best cameras on the market. Its low-light performance wasn’t quite as good as that fitted to the Samsung Galaxy S7, but the G5 produced rich, detailed images, while it’s f/1.8 lens produced some very pleasing bokeh and shallow depth of field without any software trickery.

The wide-angle lens is perhaps more interesting. Its field of view meant you could capture much more in one scene, with a little fish-eye effect at the sides. The images it produced were good in solid light conditions, but weren’t quite as good as the main camera in less than ideal lighting conditions.

The 8-megapixel selfie camera produced pretty good photos with reasonable detail, making it one of the better selfie cameras available.

The two rear cameras together were fun to play with, allowing a variety of integrated photos, including one that uses all three cameras at once. The camera app is also fairly comprehensive, with solid point-and-shoot automation and enough manual controls and RAW support to cater for most people.

Oharrak

  • Having the power button on the back means you can’t easily turn the screen off when it’s on a table
  • Double tapping the screen when it is off turns it on
  • The plastic coating on the metal body was easily chipped on the chin
  • There’s an IR blaster in the top for controlling your TV
  • Call quality was excellent
  • The screen is one of the most readable outdoors on any smartphone

Prezioa

The LG G5 comes in three colours and costs £500.

Konparatzeko, the Samsung Galaxy S7 costs £550, du Galaxy S7 Edge costs £639, du HTC 10 costs £570, du Huawei P9 costs £449 eta Nexus 5X costs £299.

Epaia

LG G5 esperimentu interesgarri bat da. Bere telefonoa behealdean zirrikitua modular dauka potentziala, baina susmoa dut inoiz egingo bete ditu. It uzten du erabiltzaileen bateria ordezkatzeko oraindik smartphone sendo bat emanez, berriz,.

The cameras are great fun, it has USB-C and a microSD card slot, a great screen and interesting design. But small niggles such as the gaps where the chin connects, the sharp join lines, the plastic feel of the body and disappointing battery life means the G5 isn’t quite as good as the best available at the moment.

It’s certainly a power-user’s device, with much more flexibility than almost all the other top-end smartphones available. It’s definitely a good phone, just not a really great one.

Pros: diseinu modular, great cameras, pantaila onak, replaceable battery, microSD txartelaren zirrikitua, USB-C

Cons: slightly less than premium build, battery life not the best, fingerprint scanner not quite as good as some
