Today we will look at a smartphone which can be used for Metatrader. I believe this is the best device to use, but if you want to stick to a budget a nice tablet for under 100 may be your best bet.
This is the brand new LG G5. It’s a 5.3 handset from the company follows up from the LG G4 from last year, as you can see, it’s a more compact of all the devices, but it still has the same resolution 2560×1440 for the HD display.
The first thing I noticed with this device is that it really reminds me of Google’s Nexus 6P it has the fingerprints sensor all over here in the back which is also that was up as the power button. Also, you might notice this is where LG starts to come into tone, it has a dual camera system. So it has a 16-megapixel camera and an 8-megapixel camera.
The second 8-megapixel camera actually gives you a wider view, field of view goes out to 135 degrees. G5 will be available in the silver option, there’ll also be gold, a pink, and a dark color which LG calls Titum. But there has really different about the LG G5 is something that LG calls a set of friends or accessories for the new phone is a tiny little button right here on the side which when you press it pops open and you actually pull out the battery of the phone with it.
It’s a 2800 milliamp battery and you can add more accessories so one of them is this extra camera grip which you took the battery into and you put back into the phone. LG says the G5 boots up really quickly so we can actually test that right now. But what you have with this compartment is you get an extended battery so you do get a dedicated shutter button, a dedicated video button, an LED indicator light and a jog dial for zoom and the phone is just booted up.
So that was a few seconds that it took, with the extended batteries as well you get up to 4000 milliamp LG says 50% more usage or 6 or 8 hours extra camera usage which is you know, is nice. Also, noticeable down here the bottom, UDC it uses the UDC connector.
Another attachment that LG has for the G5 is the Bang and Olufsen Hi-fi DAC and amp, so this is a 32-bit DAC it has its own headphone jack which quite is a little bit confusing because of the headphone jack up here and there’s also one up on the top of the phone, the one on the bottom is for the 32-bit Hi-fi DAC and amp. The whole idea with this is that G5 once you have this plugged in it turns into a Hi-fi portable media player.
But these are just the two attachable accessories, the two attachable circle of friends is the LG 360 cam which does pretty much what the name suggests, it’s a 360 camera and there’s also a new USB-C head mounting display. It weighs a hundred grams it’s a little bit more attractive than the usual VR set. And also there is a rolling robot, it’s kind of like a spheral ball it’s a big ball that you control with your phone; it has a laser pointer, it has a camera integrated into it, it has speakers and a microphone.
LG presents it as a home monitoring device/pet care accessories. Another big new feature is the ozone display so the display never goes out, it’s an IPS display not all LED and consumes 9.8% of battery power per hour. The one thing that LG isn’t giving us is a new pricing for any of these accessories.
The big innovation for LG is all of these accessories the Friends that it’s adding on, this is what’s going to set G5 apart. But, speaking for myself personally I love the design, I love the feel of this phone and I feel with the new and improved cameras the new and improved processors and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 inside, 4GB of RAM, 22GB of storage micro SD expandability.
Just as a phone, this might be one of the more interesting and the more exciting ones coming out in a long while. The LG G5 and all its friends are coming out in early April around the world but I have. This is all from the LG G5 and MWC for now, but stay tuned to the Verge, tune in to our YouTube channel as well, we have a whole bunch more from here at MWC, that’s it.
