LG pushed the boundaries of design with its first modular device, the LG G5. Featuring a slide-out bottom and a range of attachments called LG Friends, the phone itself can be personalized- a first for hardware.

You can choose from a variety of add-ons like LG 360 VR, LG 360 cam and LG Hi-Fi PLUS to customize the device for your needs. All of the components can be managed using a single app and can be swapped at any time, making G5 arguably the most versatile smartphone available.
