Himanshu, 18 March, 2016

LG has announced that its newest flagship - the G5 - will go on sale globally on March 31. The South Korean company said that the modular phone will come with freebies (ranging from its camera module to a battery pack worth over $100) that will vary depending on the country.

Prices of a couple of G5's friends (accessories) have also been revealed: the Cam Plus camera grip will carry a price tag of around $85, while the audio module (Bang & Olufsen DAC) will set you back around $160.

Over in the US, Best Buy has started accepting pre-orders for the AT&T and Sprint variants - Verizon variant will be up for pre-order starting March 24.

The retailer is offering $100 savings on the device with purchase and activation of a 2-year contract with Sprint. Alternatively, buyers will get a $100 Best Buy gift card with purchase and activation of monthly installment plan - this promo is also available for the AT&T variant.

In addition, all purchases will come with a free bundle (worth $90) that includes a replacement battery, charging cradle, and USB-C to micro-USB adapter.

The only difference is that you are swiping to the next screen as apposed to tapping a button to get to the pages of apps? you can still have all your widgets on the main screen ?

Why should I get disappointed? HTC Sense easily a better experience than Touchwiz. Apparently Touchwiz still lags. Boomsound stereo speakers are still there and better than S7 bottom mono speakers. Faster android updates than S7.
