Negatives


Short of internal storage. Laser auto-focus no so cool as expected. Modular bases are not so attractive though they are highly productive considering extra battery, cam plus features and so on. The phone doesn't feel that premium as compared to Apple or Samsung devices. Even Sony's devices look more premium than this one. Slightly overpriced but a great smartphone to invest into.

Overall LG G5 is one of the best choices for 2016. Incredible camera, powerful processor, the stunning display makes this phone a unique choice.
