In the beginning of the year their was a lot of hipe about the the new flagship by the LG. the new phone was next in the g series and was most probable that it would be named as G5 the successor of the G4. Untill recently in the MWC no one knew what would be the innovation by the LG but with their impressive LG V10 they told the world that they are not behind in the innovation and are here to something amazing in the future. They were many rumors before the launch but you cannot go with that. But finally LG G5 smartphone was launched in February 2016. The LG G5 came out to be the most unique phone (i may say unique concept) in the year 2016.
The LG G5 made a lot of buzz because of its brave efforts to bring a unique concept in the market. The LG G5 has a modular design. Modular design is the one were the phone’s parts can be changed. By changing it means you can change the phone’s camera with a standalone accessories. If you remember project Ara the Google’s modular phone project which had made a lot of buzz in the market. The LG tried to do something of same kind.
The modular design is kind of a different in lg G5 you can only remove the bottom part of the phone were the battery is placed and the battery comes out as well. Then you can change the part of the phone with a different part. There are are currently only three standalone modular parts which can be switched with the bottom piece. The company says that it will out its design to other third party modular parts creators, so that theey can make different modular parts.
Apart from the changed design lets have a look at the specs:

Removable Li-Ion 2800 mAh battery
The lg G5 has some nice specs on the paper but how it delivers with the new design is yet to see. the camera at the back is a 16 MP camera and the bump back their is the one seen in the Nexus 6p. Qualcomm’s latest, the Snapdragon 820, paired with an Adreno 530 GPU and 4GB RAM. According to LG, the 820 will provide graphics that are 40% faster and 40% more power efficient than the Snapdragon 810. The LG G5 sticks to just one with 32GB on-board storage, though the microSD expansion slot allows you to expand up to a theoretical 2TB. You’ll find the microSD card on the side this time around, built into the same tray that holds the SIM card.he LG G5 has reduced the screen down from 5.5-inches to 5.3-inches, while retaining the same QHD resolution.16MP main cam with OIS that was found on the V10, though this time it is backed by an 8MP wide-lens, which makes it possible to smoothly transition from standard angle to wide angle and all the points in between.The battery are removable but has been shrunk down to 2800 mAh, vs the 3000 mAh battery found in the G4. Although removable batteries aren’t a must-have for many consumers, there are still plenty of power users out there that lust over such functionality, so it’s good to see LG giving these folks an option.It’s also worth noting that the LG G5 includes Quick Charge 3.0 support, allowing you to charge from 0% to 80% in just 35 minutes.
Well its hard to say, the specs on the paper is quite good but as we know the battery is low as compared to previous version and it has a IPS LCD panel. So it would be good to see how much battery it consumes and how well the battery performance.
