Meanwhile, with the LG G5 Dual sim an otherwise technically identical version of the LG flagship G5 appeared. It offers all the advantages of single-SIM variant, especially the very fine workmanship, plenty of power and the new expansion module out. In dual-SIM Test l the new top model iefert a very good performance, the advantages of the module slots are far more theoretical. So what could the G5 technically in ordinarycompared to the other Super Phones like Galaxy S7 (test) or Sony Xperia Z5 (test) ? And what do you need in view of the fact that the G5 Dual SIM at least at present is only available as an import?

One of the best displays in comparison to 5.3 in the very color-stable Screen Quad-HD, ie 2560 x 1440 pixels provides. The predecessor was able to score with these values in the test, and the G5 provides again for a more rounded impression. While the G4 Although ultra sharp, but somewhat dull worked, and the colors of our impression now once more. The data for this: While the absolute magnitude between two generations of about 440 cd / m² to 360 cd / m² is sunk, the contrast has increased dramatically: from 926: 1 to 1544 now:. 1 This confirmed the subjective impression of the practice. It is interesting, incidentally, that LG follows a slight trend to not make always huge displays. With 5.3-inch screen is 0.2 inches (0.5 cm) below the value of the previous model. However, the results only partly to smaller dimensions. The amount actually adds minimally to half a millimeter (!) To now 14.94 cm. For this, the G5 has become narrower: from 7.65 to 7.39 cm. Of particular note was the last LG flagship yes the curved display, in which the center of the picture was a bit further away from the user as the top and bottom margins. The LG has not continued at the G5, the screen is so again classic flat. (As a result, the expansion modules can probably more easily pulled out of the housing and insert.)

operating system

With Android 6.0.1 the G5 Dual sim is right at the cutting. Basically you need the OS hardly even imagine, but a special feature compared to version 5.x sticks out. At last you can external memory, the model is put via microSD, so use and manage as internal memory. The previously common and sometimes disturbing differences - for example that did not start all apps microSD - are dispensed with. As with virtually every manufacturer is also in LG mobile phones on the OS even a self-designed design interface of the manufacturer. The means in this case UX5.1. Apart from their own taste it is to use on a par with zBTouchWiz of Samsung . Small hint yet to the optical surface: The LG G5 now offers the Always On feature for its display. This means that a (selectable) Display example of the time will be visible. Similar to a screen saver on the PC. That is per hour cost less than 1 percent of battery capacity.

Mobile Internet

When mobile Internet the G5 brings basically a very satisfactory performance. In itself fit for everyday life, even if you have a rather high data usage. (Must Whereby course of own mobile phone contract to play). but is crucial for the import to pay attention to the exact model. Currently, there is the LG G5 Dual SIM namely both with the label H860 and H860N. The GSM and UMTS networks in this country can both easily use. Differences between there but in LTE :
  • The LG G5 H860 supports only the two frequencies 1800 to 2600 MHz.
  • The LG G5 H860N is with all three German LTE bands (800, 1800, 2600 MHz) compatible.
  Tip : Search In online buying one before ordering the exact name, if the new smartphone will be used a lot in rural areas - there is often only the 800-band.

battery pack

With 2800 mAh, the LG G5 is well equipped, but is compared to the other current top smartphones not at the top. For example, the new Samsung Galaxy S7 (Test) has a 3000 mAh powerful energy storage. A wireless charging function, there are at least thus far apparently also not. Nevertheless, the G5 can the battery points: First, because it is very easy to change, by unlocking it via the module button and pulling out. And secondly because it is easy to load. For LG used as connector Format USB C (can in which the plug is no longer upside insert) in conjunction with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. This quick charge is almost half faster than Quick Charge 2.0. Moreover, it should only need a quarter as long, if one compares the technique with conventional charges.

SIM slots

In both SIM slots each have a nano-SIM, which is the smallest currently available SIM card fits size. The LG G5 has on the right side his SIM and MemoryCard- Tray . To open it, you need a pointed object . The device is sold with the delivery, but it is always a bit awkward when you unceremoniously want to change the SIM card (s). In the test, however, we can not be regarded as real disadvantage, as other models set with metal body on the same principle. And with its removable battery LG is, after all, already one step ahead in terms of flexibility.
The SIM tray provides a total of two slots . The right which serves to accommodate the first SIM card. The left one is a so-called hybrid slot . You can put it either for a second SIM use - or for a microSD card. Anyone wishing to use both external memory and a second call, has a problem. In most cases, the required data can indeed be on the internal memory and a cloud spread - but some users want to just have all the information directly on the phone.
As SIM format can only nano SIM card insert, both in the left and in the right slot. If you have both enabled, they are also parallel to reception . They use the so-called dual-SIM standby principle: As long as a phone number on the phone as on their network, the other is in idle mode and therefore can not be reached - until the call ends.
However, one can set up call routing between the two "lines", so you do not miss incoming calls to the other number. Depending on your phone contract is such a diversion but charge: Those who want to use this function to on the LG Dual G5 on two phones to make calls at the same time, you should first examine its tariff details exactly.

  • Module compartment for various extensions
  • Very good performance
  • Not waterproof
  • Modules not as stable as permanently installed hardware
