Interesting early deal if you want the new LG G5. Question is, will the G5 fall in price like the G3 and G4 or will LG finally make a phone that lives up to it's specs and holds it's value.

The modular design looks very interesting but again, could end up being a bit gimmicky. Definitely the best contract deal if you want to go early.

LG G5 is a string of firsts; LG’s first all-metal design, first always-on display and the first mobile to feature swappable modules.

£69.99 up front, £32.49 p/m

Feast your eyes on LG’s debuting all-metal smartphone. Using high-grade aluminium and a glossy glass panel, LG has created a magnificent-looking, and feeling, piece of kit in LG G5.

Changeable modules mean you can literally swap pieces of tech in and out of LG G5, like a more powerful speaker set or a camera-key complete with a shutter button, zoom dial and hand grip.

Save your thumbs and battery work thanks to an always-on display. Without waking the screen up, you can glance at the time, date and your notifications. It’s all there waiting.

When you do wake the display up, you’ll be amazed by the Quad HD quality and intense colour reproduction. At 5.3-inches it’s big enough to lend your content more scale.

A very strange phone. I can't see it holding its value for long.

- Plain looks
- Weird accessories (camera grip with no tripod mount, & a 32bit DAC that should have been built into the phone from the get go).
- Smaller battery than the G4
- A screen that can't be switched off, & drains 1/5 of the battery in a day.

Bit of a lemon I reckon.

​Some of your points are a bit subjective (though still valid!), I quite like the front design, the back is pretty bland, but if I put a case on it I think it'll look better.

Accessories - at the moment I sort of agree with you. Depends on how they are priced for me. Also not so fond of how the b&o DAC makes the phone look.

Smaller battery, but combined with the supposedly more efficient sd 820, better optimised ui and smaller screen, it might have better battery life than the g4. I guess we will know when it finally gets into people's hands.

As for the always on display, you can turn it off. Personally I would, but nice for people who want it.

I'm torn between this and the s7 edge. The edge will undoubtedly sell better and has a lot of good points which I like. But I do like the underdog and I appreciate LG doing something different, even if it's a tad wacky this year!
I can't honestly see the attraction of always-on as what's the point of knowing you've 4 messages & 5 emails etc unanswered, if you can't see who they are from?

I agree with you, I guess it is for people who use their phones to tell the time. But for me, I'm one of the dying breed who always wear a watch!

Your breed is trying to go through a resurrection via smartwatches

I really like the phone and the ideas they are trying to bring to the phone, but this is simply too much money for it.

Also will it hold value? No, because that is lgs policy. There are plenty of manufactures who keep the price artificially high and honestly I would always side with LG and am happy to buy a year old phone at third of a price.
last 13 years their phoned been dropping in prices quickly so not sure why would you expect this one to hold its price
I'm expecting to pay 350\400 before year end
I would not recommend LG phones at all. The LG G4 has an infamous boot loop problem due to hardware defects and LG is reluctant to acknowledge that. People who sent back the phones waited months for repairs and there is no way to get back your data. You can google LG G4 boot loop and will find a lot of threads complaining this issue. Seems LG stands for low quality and poor customer service. LG G2 and G3 has cracked screen issues, and G4 with this boot loop issue, who knows whether G5 is going to "surprise" us.
