My review of LG G5 – in 2017! So, I got this phone a few months ago. As you can see in this picture, the screen might be… cracked. That’s ‘cause I bought the phone with a cracked screen, and might have played with my friends roughly totally forgetting about my phone in my pocket. So please understand, and I assure you, it didn’t affect my review.
So, Is the LG G5 worthy in 2017?
In short, Yes. It totally is.
The performance is still great, as it has a Snapdragon 820 in it. It still runs heavy games like WarDragons very well, even with screen recording on. For normal daily use, it still has more than enough performance to cover all of it.
The battery. Well, to be fair, at this time of use, your battery might be draining extremely fast. After all, it’s been almost 2 years since this thing launched. But no worries. This phone has a removable battery, so if you just swap it out for a new one, it’ll start to last long again.
Next up, the screen. I must say, that the screen on this isn’t bad or get schooled by new phones by any means. As long as I’m aware, the screen has a 2k resolution, and has a pixel density of 400ppi. It definitely isn’t the sharpest display on the market, but still it’s one of the best, and personally, I think it’s good enough.
The UI and the user support. Personally, I’m not exactly fond of LG’s customer support, as they tried to discontinue the V10’s support so fast. You really don’t know when LG decides to discontinue the G5’s support as well. You’re really walking on thin ice here, using this phone. As for the UI, I must say that this time, LG designed the UI very well. It is easy to use, and looks organized.
The design. Well, there’s nothing that can exactly change with a phone, as it’s just one of the mass-produced products. I personally am fond of it. But as always, it’s heavily depended on the person’s preferences.
And the Modules. There hasn’t been any new announcements of the G5’s module after it’s camera grip and the HiFi module. Both, which are…useless for me. But again, this might depend on the person’s preference.
Finally, the cameras. The G5 has three cameras. One wide angle back camera, one normal back camera, and one front facing camera. The cameras are still quite good, though not as good as the newer G6 or the V20. But that doesn’t mean that it’s bad. As a former flagship phone, the images taken by those cameras are still sharp and the colors are quite nicely depicted. It might not be the top of the line camera, but still, it’s more than enough for a moderate daily use.
To sum it up,
-user friendly UI
-the lack of module
-the battery might be draining extremely fast
