Modular phones are becoming a thing. Or so LG hopes.

LG’s modular design adds a new dimension to the equation – expandability. But the question is, are those things that the modern smartphone needs? Or is the [...]
Every year, OEMs put out newer and better phones. Of course they do. What’s the point of a new generation if it’s not better than the last, right? But some OEMs, notably Apple, have taken to using more vague descriptors of their smartphone components. They say things like “all day battery life” or Apple’s famous “retina display”.

The world was introduced to the LG G5 on Sunday, and it has received almost universal approval from all corners of the internet. The LG G5 is a gorgeously designed phone with some really compelling features and additions. Most notably, LG adopted a sort of modular design with some accessories you can get along with your brand spankin’ new flagship. But, in the opinion of this humble tech geek, LG missed one key aspect when developing the G5’s “Friends.”Disclaimers
