Life’s Good When You Play More.

Introducing the LG G5, with its brand new design elements that feature a sleek metal body. The LG G5 comes with a 135-degree wide angle lens camera, a slide out removable battery, and a sophisticated 'modular' design which allows you to connect optional range of LG Friends accessories. Life's good when you play more.

LG’s First Modular Type Smartphone

The LG G5 features a transformative ‘modular’ design featuring slide out battery and the ability to connect your phone to ‘LG Friends’ accessories.

See the big picture

The 135-degree camera lens offers a viewing angle that is 15 degrees wider than the humans' eye's binocular field of view. The wide angle lens makes it easier to capture those big Australian landscape scenes, and those social gatherings when you need to capture a larger group of friends without having to position yourself further away.

G5 Wide Angle Lens

"The wide angle lens allows for dramatic leading lines and lets you really create depth and dynamism in any image"
- Richard Hirst, Sydney Landscape Photographer

Pop-out Picture

Create eye-popping pictures. Pop-out picture mode uses both normal and wide angle for your subject and background image whilst applying various effects like grayscale, blur and fisheye to create stand out shots on your G5’s camera.

Daylight Mode

Don’t be left in the dark. The Daylight Mode automatically adapts the screen brightness to the lighting conditions so you can see your screen even in the scorching ozzie sun.

Always-on Display

Check your phone notifications with a glance. The always on display allows you to quickly check your notifications without having to turn the screen on.

Control Your Friends

The LG G5 Friends Manager is a hub application that allows the LG G5 to connect with optional 'LG Friends' accessories with minimal fuss and effort. The LG Friends Manager detects nearby LG Friends and connects to them quickly and easily, eliminating much of the hassle of pairing devices.
