LG G5 was unveiled last month on the MWC 2016 though it was made available for sale just yesterday. Well guys, not even a day went by and JerryRigEverthing got his hands on the LG flagship and did what most couldn’t even imagine doing. Apparently the all new LG G5 was tortured with scratches, burnt with a lighter and then a bend test was carried out.
The tests carried out in the above video revealed some amazing facts of the handset. Firstly, the bend test proved the robustness of the device as it wasn’t easily bent, however the magic slot compartment gave away with comparatively far less force. Therefore, you should take precaution with the detachable part at the bottom of the G5. Moving on to the scratch test which proved that the LG G5 is in fact coated with a thin layer of plastic. LG themselves claimed that the ‘plastic’ layer is actually a thick paint coat which helps hide the antenna bands without disrupting their function. Note that this so-called plastic layer is coated via a process named microdizing. The same test further revealed that the screen of the smartphone is more immune to scratches if compared to the rear side.
JerryRigEverything uploaded another video in which he demonstrated how easy it is to open/disassemble and repair the LG G5. Check out the video below.

It features none other than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset, 4 GB RAM, a metal design with a removable battery. Furthermore, it comes with an Always on Display which will allow its users to check the current date/time and various notifications like unread messages, missed calls and unread emails without actually unlocking the phone first. Moreover, G5 will be running on the Android Marshmallow 6.0. Marshmallow was released last year with numerous new goodies including a completely new app drawer, redesigned app permissions, Doze, and Google Now on Tap.
