Design with practical innovations in mind.
The modular design opens up the G5 to more than just replaceable batteries.
The always-on display shows the time and notifications... all the time.
The LG G5's wide-angle camera has a 135-degree field of view.
The human eye, for reference, is roughly 120 degrees.
So what's the benefit of the always-on display? According to LG, it cuts out an average of 150 wakes for the phone for checking notifications and the time.
Unlike on the LG V10, the G5 doesn't have a secondary display — their always on display is the main display.
They built special hardware to do this, including a fancy backlight waveguide and chipset that doesn't hit the battery too hard.

And then there's the LG 360 VR, a new light-weight VR headset that doesn't mess up your hair. Because that's important.
The 360 VR weights just 100g, about 1/4 the weight of one of those *other* VR headsets.
It hooks up to your phone over USB-C — the phone handles all of the processing, sending data to the headset's displays.
