Superb performance
By SELVAKUMAR | 14 Aug 2017
At this price one cannot ask for more. The camera function is class leading . Regarding audio... I am using this mobile with B&O Hi fi plus module .. This is the best audio performance in a mobile phone till date. But you have buy this Hi fi module from us for around Rs.8000/= . Though it had fetched lot of awards internationally , it failed to capture the attention as it lacks premium look. As a full metal body it absorbs shock reasonably , as i dropped it couple of times . The videos are superb. Only thing i hate in this unit is the battery backup. My humble submission is that don't look for apple and samsung always . Try LG , NOKIA and others in premium segment. Especially LG is trying very hard to catch up apple and samsung in Mobile phone segments and it may succeed one as it had done in premium OLED TVs.

It is fabtabulous
By Krishna Rao | 24 Jun 2016
The one I recently had is an excellent. In December 2015 I purchased LG G4. Before that I used SSG Note 3 which troubled me to some extent. Among these three I felt G5 is good. The resolution of the display is very good and the camera features are excellent. Though I prefer large displays for my mobiles, the size of this is comfortable. Though the price was kept at a bit higher side I didn't feel it, since I got the offers, the additional battery pack kit and Korian flip cover free.
