  • Amazing screen quality

    The LG G5’s 5.3-inch Quad HD display is top quality, providing deep blacks and really vivid colours.

  • Fingerprint sensor

    The fingerprint sensor on the rear of the handset doubles as a clickable power button.

  • Dual camera

    The G5 has two cameras on the back, which when used together can capture 24MP photos as wide as the human eye’s field of vision.

  • Premium design and game-changing battery

    The all-metal design provides the G5 with a really premium look and feel, while the slide-out battery means you can sub in a new power pack if you’re running low

Design and display

All-metal build

The G5 is carved from a single piece of aluminium, which feels really premium when you hold it in your hand. And round the back there’s a fingerprint sensor, which when clicked doubles up as a power button. 

Brilliant display

The 5.3-inch Quad HD display provides crystal clear visuals, and features always-on functionality, so you’ll never miss a notification again.  


Wide-angle dual lens

Two lenses, measuring 16MP and 8MP, can be found on the back of the phone. They can be used independently or together to create super-wide-angle 24MP shots the same width as the human eye’s field of vision.   

Spot on selfies

If a double lens on the rear isn’t enough, there’s an 8MP front-facing camera too – perfect for all your selfie and video calling needs. 

Under the hood

Lock and load

The G5 has a 2,800mAh removable battery, which can be clicked out the bottom of the handset. If you’re running low on charge and can’t find a spare charging point, simply remove the battery and replace it with a spare power pack. 

Under the hood

The almighty Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor is running things behind the scenes on the G5, making light work of apps that demand a lot of power. It also means that multitasking will be a breeze, and won’t slow you down.  

Other features

Fingerprint sensor

On the back of the G5 is the power button, which has a fingerprint sensor embedded within it. Once set up, you simply have to rest your finger on the button to unlock the handset.  

LG Friends

The removable battery means that a range of accessories, called LG Friends, can be used with the G5. From hi-res speakers by Bang & Olufsen, to Cam Plus, which give the phone a grip and proper shutter button, the possibilities are endless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gazda from It's alright. I have used that phone for over 6 weeks and must say that it's ok. What I really like is amazing camera and perfect photos (with right settings). What I don't like is a battery life - once you start browsing internet it'll be gone within 4 hours, however rapid charge will charge it full within 1 hour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Harv from This phone is brilliant...the knock on is a brilliant feature. The finger scanner works every time too. I got the bang and Olufson module for mine for hi res sound. Sounds amazing. Plus this phone got the WHAT HI FI product of the year with that module too...Go people...Bag yourself a bargain! Too late too late will be the cry when the man with the bargains pass you by!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maximus from Excellent phone Got this about a month and a half ago. Fantastic camera with some very cool features which are not available on other phones. Battery life could be better especially if you are a heavy user but that is well known. A good power pack or extra battery sorts that.
