LG’s latest flagship device is officially available in Canada today. All three major carriers, Rogers, Bell and Telus, have it in their line up as do several smaller carriers including Fido, MTS, SaskTel, Videtron Eastlink and WIND Mobile. On the big three, the G5 goes for $300 on contract while other carriers have their own pricing. Just in case you need a refresher, here are the specs:
5.3″ QHD IPS Display
microSD Card Slot
16MP Camera + 8MP Secondary Camera
8MP Front Facing Camera
2800 mAh Removable Battery
Of course, the big differentiating feature on the G5 is the removable battery. Despite sporting a “premium” design like the competition, LG has made the battery user-removable which is a big plus in many people’s books. The G5 is also the first modular phone to hit the market and while the add ons are pretty limited right now, it’s still a unique idea. Hopefully they add some more Friends down the line.
