Expert review by : Max Parker (



In an effort to differentiate it from the Samsung Galaxy S7 and HTC 10, LG is betting everything on a fancy new "modular" system of accessories for its flagship G5 smartphone.

LG G5 with Hi-Fi Plus DAC review


A smartphone that can sound as good as a dedicated music player? Yes please!

Great picture ; Great sound (with Hi-Fi Plus module) ; Superb camera ; Expandable memory ; Removable battery

Lackadaisical sound without Hi-Fi Plus module

Innovation and performance – just what a smartphone needs

LG G5 review: the most interesting smartphone you can buy


Does a modular design make this the best smartphone around?

Genuinely innovative ; Great camera ; Removable battery

Accessories are a gimmick ; Build doesn't match rivals

LG G5 review: Modular misfire?


LG has its foot firmly on the gas. Its G5 flagship totally shake-ups the top-end phone market by introducing a module-based design so that additional accessory units can be added for new features and operation. The LG G5 is a flagship that's going to...

Really good camera, plenty of power on board for slick experience, modules make a point of difference unlike the competition, decent Quad HD screen with at-a-glance always-on feature

Not great battery life, design looks plasticky, modules impact design and we can’t seem them catching on, fingerprint scanner small and less receptive than some competitors

The LG G5 is a flagship that's going to split the crowd; it's certainly had us bouncing from pillar and post. That module-based design is such a radical shake-up of the flagship market that we want to be excited, we really do, but we're just not....

LG Hi-Fi Plus with B&O Play review


Give your LG G5 the gift of music

Amazing sound ; Easy to use

Makes the phone longer ; Some issues with use as a standalone ; Bit pricey

If you own a G5, really love music and can stomach the cost then it's a must

LG G5 review


LG takes 5 and retools its flagship Android phone

Strong screen ; Super performance ; Useful wide angle camera

Questionable design ; No app drawer ; Battery could be better

The LG G5's modular party pieces are yet to be fully realized, but away from that you've got a supremely solid flagship smartphone - if only the battery was a bit better.

LG G5 review: The modular wonderphone


The most ambitious phone of recent years, LG's G5 is an incredible handset that finally stands shoulder to shoulder with Samsung's S7

You can expect similar levels of performance across both phones and there's little to divide their displays. As a result, which phone you go for will ultimately come down to a matter of personal preference. For most the convenience of a long battery...

LG G5 review in-depth


Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.

The LG G5 is one of the most radical phones to come along in a while and we’re glad the firm has shaken things up with the modular design. The G5 is innovative and interesting with unique features but it’s a shame the design and build feels unfinished...

LG G5 Review: In Depth


LG G5 Review: The LG G5 is one of the most exciting new phones of 2016, boasting the ability to expand via the funky pop-off...

Intriguing expandability ; Flexible camera tech ; Solid performance ; Removable battery

Beaten on battery life ; Chunky design

Even if you have no interest in LG’s modular functionality (which is yet to prove itself worthwhile), the G5 is still well worth considering as your next full-time smartphone. The dual camera setup is brilliant, offering impressive flexibility, while...
