Pure aesthetic appeal


Making a stylish statement with its sleek, lightweight design and metal alloy body, the phone has a 3D arc glass design on top and curves in the just the right places. Its minimalist design continues all the way to the back, and comes in three premium colors—gold, silver and titan.


A hyper-powered heart 


The LG G5 runs on the latest Android 6.0 (out-of-the-box) Marshmallow and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. Pumping at the core is 4 GBs of  RAM backed by the Andreno 530 GPU. With a 32 GB internal memory that’s expandable up to a whopping 2 TB, this device will not only carry the load with ease, but is also built for speed!


A display that’s second to none


With a 5.3 inch screen and a Quad HD display of 2560 X 1440 pixels and a pixel density of 554 ppi, the LG G5 is all about color, clarity and depth. The LG G5’s brightness can also go from 500 to 850 nits and its higher pixel density gives you a better and brighter view, no matter how sunny the outdoors is!

The phone offers a Quick Charge 3.0 capability, ensuring you can zap-up the battery to its full, in less than an hour. The Low Power Location Estimation (LPLE) Technology in the smartphone also improves power saving and battery efficiency. For those who need some extra charge, the LG G5 offers a removable battery (something very rare in phones today) which can be replaced on the go with an extra pack.


Security and safety covered


A sleek fingerprint scanner at the back of the phone ensures that you lock out those who have no business snooping around and gives you added security. What we like is that the scanner that’s smoothly integrated with the rest of the phone design—keeping the slick and smooth tone of the device seamless.
