LG G5 in 2018
In 2018 LG G5 still can compete with low and mid range phones released even this year. Compared to many devices even has the advantage of removable battery, a thing that is totally missing on phone models released recently.
Dual camera. Still many low mid range phones don't have a camera to compete with LG G5.
Maybe a newer phone released this year has a little better design, but I think it still worth to buy with same amount of money a top phone from one or two years ago.
Still, when compared to the model of phones I used, I found the angle of front facing camera the only issue. No lag or blocking at all on the total using of the device. Battery life was good with the original battery that phone came. I could get more than half of day on intense use.
Front facing camera has good quality and is enough for chatting video with friends, selfie photos, but when cams to making a video, the angle of view is not that big. You will need a selfie stick to make a proper selfie video.
A final touch about LG G5 in 2018, it totally worth to buy it if you will have to chose between it and a low-mid range phone of the year.
