The accessory offers G5 photographers a tactile buttons. They include a toggle switch to launch the camera, a continuous dial wheel for zooming in and out of subjects, a shutter button and a video recording button.
As for the phone's camera features, the handset has two rear-cameras (a 16-megapixel camera and a wide-angle 8-megapixel shooter), and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera.
The bottom of the phone and the battery slide out for accessories; this is where you slide in the Cam Plus.
The G5 has a 2,800mAh internal battery, but the grip has its own power source that adds an additional 1,100mAh of juice.
The Cam Plus adds enough bulk to make gripping the phone more comfortable, but because it doesn't have a headphone jack, you wouldn't want to keep the accessory attached to the phone at all times.
With the grip attached, the phone has a slight tilt while lying on a desk.
While you still can't grip it like a camera -- that would be resting your thumb on the screen -- it does add a measure of stability when shooting.

With its 5.3-inch display the G5 is large, the Cam Plus makes taking pictures more comfortable. If you're not a photo enthusiast, though, you can still use the device's camera just fine without it. Click here for more information on the LG G5.
