The new LG G5 was beautifully designed with a metal unibody frame and modular design, and owners will want a case to protect their new phone and those dual cameras on the back. The LG G5 comes in four brushed metal color variants, but if you still want a case below are multiple exciting LG G5 cases worth considering.
On February 21st the LG G5 was finally announced after months of rumors, and now it’s finally available in stores throughout the United States. As of April 1st the LG G5 is officially available, and users will want accessories for it.
The LG G5 cases we’ve outlined below will protect your new phone from drops and damage thanks to the durable construction, but also deliver features like a kickstand, wallet, additional battery life, fancy features like the Folio Flip Case, and clear cases so G5 owners can still see that new metal design. Many won’t work with the leather G4, so keep that in mind while shopping for a case.
For 2016 LG took a completely different approach to the smartphone. It’s made out of metal with a slide-out modular design on bottom which allows owners to swap out additional accessories, and transform the smartphone into a much more powerful device. Not to mention the battery slides out and can be replaced in seconds.
And while most owners will simply use it as a smartphone, those extra options are nice to have. Along with announcing the phone back on February 21st, LG unveiled a slew of exciting new accessories as well. However, here we’ll be sharing some great case choices to protect your phone.
The LG G5 is now available from AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, other carriers, Best Buy stores and more. Pre-orders began on March 18th for some, March 24th for Verizon or Sprint, and shipped ahead of April 1st. Meaning many have the phone already. Now would be a good time to grab a nice LG G5 case in time for the release date. Below is a collection of a few available now, some official cases from LG, and more will be added in the near future as additional options are released.
LG G5 Quick Cover
In typical LG fashion the company has announced and released an official "LG G5 Quick Cover" for its new smartphone. Similar to previous years it offers 360 degree protection, including a flap to protect the 5.3-inch Quad-HD display. This year though, the Quick Cover is touch-enabled. Meaning users can launch the camera, answer calls, get at-a-glance notifications, weather, date, time and more without ever opening the phone. The flip cover responds to touch just like the screen would.
Combining the new always-on display mode, with the touch-enabled Quick Cover, will be one of the easiest and best experiences available. Letting users interact with the phone without ever opening the case or exposing the phone, or its screen.
Users can expect the LG Quick Cover to be around $39.99 and maybe more, and if its like previous years, a wireless charging cover will be released at some point as well. We'll update with a link once it's available to buy.
