Two things became apparent after the end of the Spring 2016 Smartphone Glut. One: Android is still a second-class citizen when it comes to gaming, and two: smartphones are in a ridiculously boring place.
Okay. The great spring phone glut is over. The big manufacturers have revealed their flagship devices. Apple even joined in with a cheaper alternative to its flagship iPhone. I’ve spent the last few months benchmarking a lot of phones, and something has become exceedingly clear: All the CPU and GPU benchmarks in the…
They say you can’t have your cake and eat it too, but when it comes to smartphones, consumers want more functionality, while expecting the hardware to keep getting thinner. With the G5, LG believes it’s found a way to meet those expectations by adding functionality through swappable modules.

A couple of them caught our attention: a little module that will amaze audiophiles, and a bulky module that adds physical camera buttons.
Let’s talk about balls for a second. They’re super handy. They’ve done a lot for humans. And because of spherical objects, we have sports and automobiles. Heck—even the Earth is a giant ball.

This is the fifth generation of LG’s flagship smartphone, and this time around, the phone has been completely reimagined: The G5 has an aluminum case, includes a crazy expansion slot that we’ve never seen on a phone before, and supports a handful of accessories…
LG hasn’t launched its new flagship G5 smartphone yet. It won’t for at least another week. But in a rather daring piece of marketing, it has just launched a case that you’ll put it in.
Last year’s LG G4 was fantastic. It kept the best features of Android alive (like having a removable battery and expandable storage), while ushering in a few new things, like a slight curve to the phone’s body, optional leather cases, and a camera that’s actually worth a damn.
