What we said

We gave the LG G5 a 4/5 score at its review price of £529, praising its great screen, impressive wide-angle camera, and USB-C fast-charging.. Here’s our verdict:

“LG hasn’t done enough with the G5 to increase my desire for a modular phone. Combine this with the disappointing build, and you have a phone that is great in many areas, but misses the mark overall.”

What owners say

On Amazon, the LG G5 has a 4.3/5 score based on 67 user reviews. Users wrote:

“You cannot be disappointed with this phone even if you tried, so much so that I have decided to use the G5 as my personal device and the S7 for work work!”

“It’s a fantastic mobile device in every aspect I looked at – just delivers. USB Type C is also a nice touch.”

“Wide-angle camera – it offers new perspectives you never thought a phone could offer. It is the most impressive feature; I found it to be useful.”

How good a deal is this?

The LG G5 probably isn’t the best smartphone of 2016, but it’s certainly one of the best. And now that it’s been discounted so heavily, you’d be mad to ignore LG’s flagship blower.

By contrast, Amazon’s best price on the LG G5 is currently £402.89, which is a far less significant saving of £27.10:
