LG G5 review: 360 CAM shoots spherical photos and video without having to rotate your smartphone

The LG G5 not only looks great, but it is super functional as well. The fingerprint detection on the back of the phone is very easy to set up, use and is way more convenient than the fingerprint scanner on an iphone. 


The LG G5 has a detachable battery and slot to plug in additional accessories or peripherals. Amazing new camera features put this phone over the top.

The LG G5 is very thin but with a case it is perfect since you can choose the thickness you want. The screen is clear and the colors pop so much so that coming from an Amoled screen this one is more accurate. Calls are crystal clear and next gen voice works quite well. The cameras are great the fact that you can use all 3 at the same time is no gimmick. The finger print reader works quite well but google voice doesn't come on until after you unlock the phone. The speaker is acceptable for a phone. This phone is really fast and smooth very responsive. It's not water proof but they make a case for that.

LG G5 Major Features

LG G5, LG G5 features, LG G5 best buy, LG G5 smartphone, LG G5 mobile phone

-Always on Display; (AOD) Off Screen (aka Glance feature) Beside the token 'clock', the G5's black 'off screen' displays icon notices from ALL push Apps, not just the few proprietary ones. Also, it is much more elegant and subtle. Not this overly bright clock that 'jumps' around the screen like on some other phones.

-Tap-to-Wake / Tap-to-Sleep feature. No need to push physical buttons, just a quick screen 'double-tap' to turn-on, turn-off. Works 100% of the time (unlike 3rd party apps) and don't notice any major battery drain.

-LG G5 has QuickCharge 3.0 (the latest & geatest) and goes from 40% to 90% charge in 30 minutes.

-USB 3.0 - Lightning fast data transfers of movies, vids & music from my main system.

-Dual Main Cameras (Standard & Wide Angle) Great feature that using more often than expected. Photo quality has been EXCELLENT with this phone.

-Flat Screen on the LG G5, along with the 'curved glass' at the top of the LG G5 actually provides a nice 'glide' when doing top menu pull-downs (quick settings & notifications action).

-Minimal App bloat out-of-the-box. Fairly clean UI.

-Images look awesome on a 5.3” Quad HD screen and a high-contrast display with daylight mode.

-Get more detail in every shot using dual rear-facing cameras with standard and ultra-wide-angle lenses.

-Take the party up a notch with LG Friends: LG 360 VR, LG 360 CAM, and LG CAM PLUS.
