The LG G5 is not the LG smartphone you’re used to. Instead, the new G5 offers users the experience to “play more.” Sold separately from the LG’s newest flagship phone are its “Friends,” a series of additional gadgets that were designed with the G5’s unique modular design in mind. This design is what really sets the phone apart from the pack of mobile giants like Apple and Samsung. While LG may not be known for its innovation traditionally, enthusiasts are taking note of these thoughtful design features.
LG G5 Design and Friends
A modular design offers users the ability to customize their device. An innovative slide-out battery can be swapped to keep users connected 24-7. LG is calling the slide out mechanism the “Magic Slot,” and it’s what makes the device compatible with the G5’s Friends accessories.
The LG G5 Friends accessories include:
- LG Cam Plus: A camera module that provides a better grip, additional battery power and physical camera controls.
- LG 360 Cam: Made with the Periscoper in mind, this modular offers 360 degrees of 1280p video recording.
- LG Hi-Fi Plus: Designed by B&O Play, the Hi-Fi Plus features a contemporary design with a 32 Bit DA converter and amp for use on and off the phone.
- LG 360 VR headset: This lightweight headset offers users an interactive virtual reality experience and features a 130″ HD display.
- LG Rolling Bot: Monitor your home and keep pets entertained while you’re at work. The Rolling Bot features a built-in camera and laser pointer that users control remotely from their phone.
- LG Tone Platinum wireless headset: High quality audio and a sleek, ergonomic design. The LG Tone Platinum offers 11 hours of talk time and 10 hours of music listening.
- LG Charging Cradle: With the LG G5’s slide-out battery design, users can charge extra batteries in this cradle in seconds.
