LG ELECTRONICS G5 unboxing: Bringing some ‘Friends’ along for the ride

All things must be unboxed. And occasionally they must be filmed simultaneously.

Said it before, and we’ll say it once again. We’re generally not huge fans of the pomp and circumstance that tends to come with taking phones we’ve currently seen out of boxes. But sometimes things are unique. There was the LG Optimus Black “Unbooking” way back this year. Only a few months later there were the bizarre alien mind that was part of a promotion meant for Verizon’s Motorola Droid Bionic. There have been others, of course.

Yet LG’s back again with the LG ELECTRONICS G5. It’s as polarizing as it is intriguing. On its own it’s a more-than capable phone. But throw in that it’s got interchangeable modules and that “Friends” ecosystem of accessories — plus a brand new user interface, and there’s a good deal going on here.

So to kick things off, LG’s sent us a good amount of the family. We’ve got a T-Mobile G5. We’ve got the particular CAM Plus and Hi-Fi Plus modules. And we have the 360 CAM virtuelle realität camera. They’re all in boxes, of course , and had been sent in a case that you just aren’t help but have a little fun opening up.

The phone, CAM Plus and 360 CAM go on sale this week. (Some operators have already shipped, in fact. ) The Hi-Fi Plus — well, we don’t have accessibility details on that just yet. And, in fact , because it’s not yet cleared for use by the FCC, it won’t work in U. H. models of the G5 just yet. (It sounds great on the European phone we’ve been using, though, and it’ll function when connected to a separate source. )

Now, without additional ado: Our LG G5 unboxing.
