The LG G5 is definitely an upgrade from the LG G4 based on the specs alone with its newer and more powerful CPU and larger RAM. The camera, although retained at 16 megapixel, is paired with a secondary 8 megapixel wide angle camera.

There’s also support for larger capacity microSD cards, USB Type-C and Android Marshmallow out of the box. The few disadvantages we see here is the slightly reduced display size and smaller battery.
