Engadget Review

LG's choice to build a modular flagship smartphone is so brave it borders on nutty -- too bad the phone doesn't live up to its potential. It's a powerful smartphone with an inspired approach to photography, but it feels like LG made too many compromises to make the G5 work with its swappable modules.

This phone's modularity means it might actually get better over time, but for now, it's still very much a work in progress.
