LG rolls around everything in the new flagship G5 to differentiate himself from his predecessor G4. How this looks in detail and if is worth a change to the G5, the connect test clears up as always.

Unique modular design

The G5 is already visually differs significantly from its predecessor. The gently curved display cover and the back side of the leather are passé, the G5 comes instead in a chic and great processed aluminum alloy casing. Here, the user has the choice of the color options of silver, titanium and gold. The volume keys move from the back to the side of the device, leaving the sleep/wake button with integrated fingerprint that could score in the test with a vanishingly low error rate. According to the testers, this is the best place for a fingerprint in a Smartphone also because most intuitive. The display cover made of scratch-resistant glass is slightly curved at the top of the front camera and telephony speaker, what sets a chic accent.

But the real highlight is located at the bottom: this can be unlock via a small button on the side of the unit and remove it together with the battery of the remaining housing. So the G5 with other inserts can be fitted, as the new flagship is not alone: LG has built a complete ecosystem with the Namern ‘LG Friends’ around the G5, which partly provides a strong added value.

Fine screen, lush facilities

Like LG, the G5 in terms can shine display. The 5.3-inch display resolves with 1440 x 2560 pixels very finely and offers an outstanding representation quality of all content. Somewhat disappointing, with only 338 cd/m2 brightness yield falls however, here we were accustomed in the past higher values of LG. In direct sunlight, it can be somewhat difficult despite good contrast with the readability.

On the subject of camera, LG’s Korean engineers again in the full go. So the LG G5 is equipped with two main cameras on the back. A lens offers 16 Megapixel resolution and a detection angle of 78 degrees. The other is limited to 8 mega pixels, for its wide angle lens covers 135 degrees.

The user can toggle between two cameras in seconds over two small tree symbols at the top of the camera interface and switch, and depending on the scene select the appropriate coverage. “Mode”, you can also select the function “Pop” and thus create picture in picture photos, where both cameras at the same time are used. Thus, you can achieve impressive effects.

Bulging features, sharp images

The rest of the G camera equipment is on absolute top level. So captures the f1. 8 aperture plenty of light, a color spectrum sensor colors, laser auto-focus for sharp images, and the optical image stabilizer for wobble free shots makes for especially natural. Software side of course various photo modes, a HDR auto and the usual suspects such as a self timer or a face detection feature.

Another feature the G5 but also has a manual mode on board, which include not only in professional RAW-format photos, you can adjust all camera functions by hand.

4K-videos and 8-megapixel Selfies

The fun is complemented by video recordings in fine 4 k resolution along with slow motion and time-lapse function. Selfies captures a front-facing camera with 8 mega pixels, which can conceal thanks to an adjustable beauty mode on request skin blemishes. A fold-out selection box photos and videos also no easy matter to social networks such as Facebook or Instagram can be forward or send via email.

Itself could convince the test shots with the 16-Megapixel main camera of LG G5 with great colors and crisp sharpness through the Bank. Only in direct comparison with the currently best smartphone cameras the G5 had change to then back – they capture more details and light. The G5 has so not the best, but one of the best camera equipment.

Under the send case a real treat from the high end range is used with the Snapdagon-820 platform from Qualcomm. Four cores with a clocking of up to 2.15 GHz and 4 GB RAM ensures excellent benchmark results and a stutter-free performance in everyday life in the MSM8996. Of the 32 gigabyte memory lush 21.3 GB for users are available, the rest is covered with system files. The memory can be also easily and affordably via the joint Nano-SIM and memory slot on the side of the unit. Equipped with ac Wi-FI, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC and LTE cat.6 can convince otherwise.

New user interface

The UI has touched LG: so the usual main menu is missing the Android 6.0.1 model. All installed apps land directly on the main level, and can be spread from there and sort into folder – like Apple and Huawei. LG waived multi-tasking features also. May enjoy the owner of modern design icons and has as many ways to configure your Smartphone for the own needs.

The “always on”display provides information on the standby screen also about time, date, missed calls, new messages and calendar entries. The info energy-saving low bright appear on the display and are really very useful in everyday life.

Hardly any weaknesses in the laboratory

In our own laboratory, the G5 as a real nerd turned: it achieves dream values at the transmitter and receiver measurements. Also the talk times are sublime with up to 25 hours in the GSM and nearly 11 hours in the UMTS usage beyond any doubt. The endurance in the practical operation of the display is also at a high level with about seven hours that should be but even better to bring the Smartphone elite to the Samsung Galaxy S7 in distress. The positive performance of the laboratory is rounded off with a neat acoustics in telephony, but just a tad bit will be noise-free.

Conclusion

But that is ultimately actions at a very high level, because in total a strong Smartphone with own approaches succeeded LG with the G5, which reached a “very good” as the first model of the Koreans at connect even the verbal note.
