The highlights and weak point on LG G5 from chris cui's blog

  The LG G5 is a series of its flagship smartphone. It adopts the new technology. It’s a gamble LG is playing on its most premier, best-selling handset. Actually, the LG G5 is one of the most extraordinary cell phones. It is popular among the public due to its dual-camera system on the back. This feature captures a kind of persons. The G5 is LG’s first all-metal smartphone, despite that, it doesn’t actually seem like metal at all. In addition, LG has decreased the display size from 5.5 to 5.3 inches. The narrower profile does improve ergonomics of the device and makes one-handed use relatively easy. Those are the main reasons which keep LG G5 special enough in the smartphone kingdom.


There have been a number of reports about some issues with the LG G5 display. Some owners are reporting an unacceptable level of backlight bleed, with bright patches appearing at the edges or corners of the display. There are also some reports that the picture distorts or blooms when people press on the display. These complaints suggest some build quality or QA issues with the first wave of G5 handsets to hit the market.


  In this part, I’ll illustrate the highlights the LG G5 possess. The first one is the display. The LG G5 is packing a 5.3-inch QHD (2560x1440) IPS Quantum display with a pixel density of 554ppi. The display is sharper than the one in the G5’s predecessor, as the size of the panel has been decreased from 5.5 to 5.3 inches, hence increasing the pixel density of the display. The viewing angles are great, with no color shifting whatsoever. And the color reproduction is pretty solid as well, but I found the saturation level to be a bit on the low side, and there’s no way to adjust the color profile under settings. The panel itself features deep blacks, but as it’s an LCD, it does suffer from brightness leaks, especially from the top and the bottom. Also, this time around, I found the color temperature to be pretty balanced, definitely not as cool as the G4’s display — which means, whites are white, not a shade of blue.


  Here is an extra benefit you will enjoy in the LG G5 model. The Always-on Display is used by LG to exhibit the latest notifications and date and can be set to show either the time or your signature alongside. Personally, I like LG's implementation a lot more than Samsung's, as it actually shows notifications from 3rd party apps, whereas Samsung's doesn't. As the display is of an LCD type, you would wonder that this feature would drain its battery. However, the company has redesigned the display’s driver IC memory and power management to only allow a small area of the display to light up.


The second point is the camera. It’s special camera design. The dual-camera system consisting of a 16-megapixel sensor and an 8-megapixel sensor. The 16-megapixel sensor is exactly the same sensor found in last year’s G4 and V10 handsets. It has an aperture of f/1.8 and is equipped with a standard angle lens at 78-degrees. Whereas, the 8-megapixel sensor has an aperture of f/2.4 and features a 135-degree, wide-angle lens — which is what makes it interesting. Both sensors are capable of shooting 4K video (3840x2160) at 30FPS for up to 5 minutes — yes, you can’t shoot a 4K video for more than 5 minutes due to overheating issues. A dual-LED flash, OIS (optical image stabilization) and a laser autofocus sensor, which makes focusing on objects a breeze, are also part of the device’s imaging system. 8-megapixel sensor only plays well with the stock camera app, some 3rd party camera apps recognize it and some don’t — it’s a hit and miss. The stock LG camera app has stayed mostly the same as before, but has been adapted to accommodate the secondary sensor and has received a few new nifty features.


There is also an 8-megapixel front-facing camera sensor, which takes some pretty detailed shots, but the lens isn’t as wide-angled as the lens in Samsung’s Galaxy flagship smartphones. It can also shoot video at Full HD 1080p at 30FPS. LG has added an Auto Shot feature to the camera app which takes a selfie without you needing to press the shutter button. It recognizes the face and as soon as it detects the face is not in motion, it captures an image — the feature actually works really well.


The LG G5 is a powerful smartphone with a great camera. The phone always has some problems and the LG G5 has no exception. In this paragraph, I’d like to give your some typical issues in terms of LG G5 display screen, such as the backlight bleed, the LED doesn’t work and freezing screen.


From the previous introduction and main features I mentioned, the LG G5 has its unique points. The LG G5 LCD screen digitizeris reliable. On the cellphoneage website, this model replacement is suitable for all models of LG G5. You can buy an original display screen digitizer if you need. Enjoy the high-quality screen technology.
