The phone comes with 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and can be expanded up to 200GB with microSD. Connectivity options are great with 4G enabled on both TDD Band 40 and FDD Band 3. On the front, it also has Bluetooth 4.2 along with A2DP support and aptX HD. Inbuilt storage is one of the limitations right now. 

The device runs on latest Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 with LG's Optimus UI 5.0 over it. Lg's custom interface is pretty well working and it is easy to work with. Overall customization is easy to handle. 

LG have also announced to provide additional Camera grip which has dedicated button for the shutter, on/off, video on/off and dial for zoom. It also contains additional 1200 mAh battery. Also, there is an option to buy Hi-Fi plus a DAC module to enhance audio output. (Bang and Olufsen make)
Many productive apps such as Back Up, Health, Friends, Quick Remote and Smart World for themes comes handy pre-installed. It also includes Evernote which can not be uninstalled.

The camera department is heavily loaded with 16 Mp camera with dual setup (capable of shooting 2160p 30fps video), with also a 8 Mp front one (capable of shooting 1080p at 30fps). Also capable of shooting slow motion with 60fps full HD with rear one. Overall camera features are awesome.


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. Click for Amazon India
