Did you know your smartphones could have friends? The LG G5 UX 5.0 has a long list of friends. Here is the official video of LG UX 5.0 that explains what exactly are “LG Friends”.
As you can see in the video, the LG Friends are actually a list of accessories that you can seamlessly use with your LG UX 5.0 smartphone.
When you have lots of friends you need to manage those friends and the LG G5 UX 5.0 comes with a Friends Manager app that allows you to manage all the accessories using a single app.
The UX can be a great identifier when most of the phones look and feel the same. A UX allows you to interact with your smartphone without getting much bogged down with the nitty-gritty of figuring things out and organizing and accessing the essential apps. This is what the official LG G5 UX 5.0 is attempting to highlight. In case you don’t know, UX stands for user experience.
One of the biggest highlights of the LG G5 UX 5.0 is its ability to auto shoot photographs. As you can see in the official video above, you just have to pose and the phone figures out that it’s time to click the photo. It also allows Multiview so you can click photographs from multiple angles (even facing camera and rear camera at the same time).
LG G5 is quite a unique 5.3-inch smartphone which is smaller than its previous 5.5-inch LG G4. It comes with an aluminium body. Its fingerprint sensor on the back doubles up as the power button. As most of the smartphones are coming these days, the edges of G5 are rounded and there is a slight curvature at the top and the bottom. It uses the Quad Core HD IPS LCD display.
The screen has an “always on” feature that displays the clock and notifications. According to the official LG stand, the always on feature uses just 5% of the battery per day. But the “always on” feature shuts off when you put the smartphone inside your pocket or put it on the table upside down.
The rear camera is 16 megapixels and the facing camera is 8 megapixels.
Again compared to LG G4, the LG G5 battery is smaller, 2800mAH, but due to Quick Charge 3.0, it charges quite fast – you can charge 80% of your phone in just 35 minutes. Unlike the latest Samsung smartphone, wireless charging is not available in LG G5.
