Set to launch globally in early April, the LG G5 first made waves when it debuted with a pull-out battery and modular design. It also has a fast processor, two rear-cameras and an always-on screen. But does it have what it takes to compete against its Android rivals?
Compared to last year's 5.5-inch G4 (right), the G5's display has gotten smaller at 5.3 inches. It also has a 2,560x1,440-pixel resolution and 554 pixels per inch -- 20 more pixels per inch than the G4.
Compared to the Samsung Galaxy S7 (left), LG's flagship isn't water resistant and its battery didn't last as long as the latter's 16-hour lab result. It is, however, likely to be less expensive, has a removable battery, and two rear cameras.
With the G5, LG has taken baby steps towards phone modularity. Though it still has a long way to go, the flagship undoubtedly stands out in this way, and it also delivers a powerful and reliable performance.
