Re: Shake Up
I read from an LG executive that the add-ons will be priced reasonable. But that's open to interpretation, isn't' it? Reasonable for who? The G5 will be expensive already, and if the "friends" are also pricey, it'd be a pity, because not that many people would get them.

Re: Shake Up
@mak63: The modules wouild be priced heftily I guarantee you. Maybe that is the reason why this modularity, people who can only afford one flagship every year, won't go for it.

Re: Shake Up
@AngelFuego: I really do not like the design, atleast from the back. The V10 is an amazing phone in my honest opinion, also the modules are going to be very costly and there aren't much options for those modules. A secondary stereo speaker, a camera grip and a walkman.

Re: Shake Up
According of what I read, the G5 has a MicroSD card slot and a 2,800mAh battery; which is similar to the 6s Plus. The G4 has a 3000mAh but the way.
For the sake of the concept, I hope that the "friends" are affordable. But even without them, it's very neat phone.

Shake Up
I would buy the LG G5. I would give it a shot. I've had a few LG phones and have been pleasantly surprised. My biggest complaint is the lack of memory storage. My current LG phone has an awesome battery life, which is the contrary to my iPhone.
