LG Electronics (LG) released their highly anticipated LG G5 modular style smartphone. This phone stands out with it’s sleek metal uni-body that integrates with the invisible antenna. The best feature is the slide-out battery that can be replaced with another battery in seconds.
The modular functionality of the G5 allows you to plug in a the LG Cam plus camera grip for comfort and functionality along with changing out the battery with a simple click of a button.
