LG took an innovative risk with its G5 smartphone: it's partially modular, with swappable 'Friends' modules that you can add and switch around.
Teamed with a gorgeous unibody design, one of the best cameras you'll find on a phone, and a razor-sharp screen.
But it doesn't have to come at a high price. There are tons of contract deals available on the G5, so you can take your choice of network, allowances, and of course price.
What's good about the LG G5?
LG has put a lot into its G range, but the G5 is a truly standout smartphone, with more than enough features to make you feel like you're calling and texting on something quite special.
- Fabulous design: The G4 sports some of LG's signature design quirks. The home/power button is on the back of the handset under the camera lens; and the whole thing is unibody metal with a nice curve to it, so it sits nicely in your hand. Not to mention the fact that you can slip out the bottom panel, and add in 'Friend' modules of your own - like a 360-degree camera, or an analogue-to-digital converter for better audio.
- 16MP camera: Not only does the camera have a high megapixel count, it's also rocking laser autofocus, 2x optical zoom, optical image stabilisation, a colour spectrum sensor, and some of the most comprehensive camera controls you'll find on a smartphone. If that's not enough, there's also an 8MP selfie cam on the front, so even your Skype calls will be in impressive definition.
- High-res display: There's a lot packed in to the G5's 5.3-inch screen. At 1440 x 2560 pixels, giving it a pixel density of a whopping 554ppi, it's firmly QHD (Quad HD) - something only found on a handful of phones. Colours are crisp though a little garish, lines are clear, and nature documentaries look amazing.
- Smart interface: LG's custom Android overlay - Optimus UI - has a smooth, easy-to-use, contemporary design, and some clever features to boot. There are Smart Settings, which live up to their name with things like automatically changing your sound profile when you arrive home, and the dual window feature that lets you use two apps at once.
LG G5 SE deals
Want a G5 that’s just a little bit less pricey? Take a look at the LG G5 SE. It has exactly the same design and stunning screen as the G5 proper, though a few of its innards have been downsized. The processors aren’t quite as punchy, and there’s just 3GB of RAM - but it’s such a small change that you’ll barely notice the difference… beside the lower price tag.
LG G4 deals
Last year's flagship, the LG G4, is a thing of luxury: if the decadent leather back doesn't tip you off that this is a high-quality phone, the 16MP camera on the back certainly will. But not only is it an amazing camera phone, it's also got some impressive processors under the hood, so it can handle almost any task without complaint - and the QHD display is simply stunning.
There are plenty of deals on the LG G4 to go around. Whether you want plain old good value, or decent 4G for your G4, there'll be one to suit you.
