I’m so sad they took back the LG G5 after I spent 2 weeks bonding with it.
It came installed with Android Marshmallow, and a powerful processor built-in so of course that meant I was going to make it work really hard. The design of the phone was good, you could tell that LG put a lot of work into designing it. After a quick boot up, it was ready to go.
I took it with me around to get a feel of it in a normal environment and also get peoples thoughts on it as I interacted with them. Its sleek design made it really comfortable to carry in my pocket and it was also light (which was a win), at times I wouldn’t even feel it there.
Let’s talk about its power though. Switching between apps was a breeze, especially because I leave a lot of apps open over time and I’m always on my phone but it handled all that with ease. My favourite feature was the camera though. I think if you read the press release, you would know it has a powerful camera but it’s only when you start using it, is when you realise how powerful it is. I took a lot of photos and videos, using its built in wide-angle shot, the filters and almost anything you can think off. The display was really super clear. The only times it started showing its downs was when the night time came, which has been the problem with many phones really as the picture quality at night wasn’t as good, it almost looked as if the images were just drawn. Another cool feature I came across was the video playback, allowing you to watch 2 parts of a video at the same time. The battery did prove to be another let down, all the work I put on it, did consume a lot of battery power. I wasn’t the only 1 who enjoyed using it though.
To conclude, take my money LG.
