14 Official LG G5 Accessories

The newly redesigned and all aluminum LG G5 has been available for a few months, but the official modular accessories selection hasn’t grown as fast as buyers expected. However, those who did pickup the new phone will need LG G5 cases, covers, chargers, additional batteries, and many other official LG G5 accessories or “friends” the company has released.

In an effort to offer the best possible smartphone experience to date, the LG G5 features a modular design with a slide-out “Magic Slot” on bottom. Allowing owners to slide out the bottom half to replace the battery, add in the LG CamPlus accessory, improve the audio and more.

When it comes to buying accessories, cases, chargers, a spare battery and more for smartphones we have a lot of options. However, the same wide array of options for Samsung and Apple don’t always apply to LG smartphones. Thankfully, they’ve made a few of their own this year, all aimed at allowing the G5 to do more than any other phone on the market.

The LG G5 has a 5.3-inch Quad-HD display, three cameras, a fingerprint scanner, and a new all aluminum design. It has a replaceable 2,800 mAh battery, a micro-SD slot, a wide-angle 8 megapixel front camera, and tons of accessories. It’s truly unlike any other smartphone ever released, although the new Moto Z and its MotoMods will give it a run for its money.

Heading over to Amazon or even Best Buy owners or future buyers will see countless accessories of all shapes, sizes, prices, and quality for the new LG G5, but your best bet will be official LG G5 accessories as they’re all released. The company showed off many during the announcement, and even more are available from the LG store.

LG G5 Replaceable Battery

LG G5 Replaceable Battery

One of the biggest features behind the LG G5 design is having a removable battery. Something more and more manufacturers are steering away from. According to LG the fastest way to recharge a smartphone or the G5, is to replace the battery. Something that's easily achievable with the LG G5.

Click a little button on the bottom of the LG G5 and the battery is completely removable. The bottom slides out, and the battery can be replaced in seconds. This year the LG G5 battery got smaller, and is now only 2,800 mAh. That said, it recharges faster than any LG phone to date, has more battery saving features, and runs the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Meaning the slightly smaller battery (last year was 3,000 mAh) shouldn't be a concern for users.

Those who grab the LG G5 will want to get a spare battery to easily throw in when the phone is dead. LG gave these out for free to everyone who preordered, and now they're available on the LG store.
