Turn your LG G5 into a workhorse with the right accessories.
Do you have your phone on you at all times ready to respond to every call, text, and email that comes your way? Do you use your phone as your primary TV, game console, and music player? If that sounds like you, then you my friend, are a power user.
Great accessories are the icing on the phone cake. You already have the the phone you want that works amazingly well, not you want those little extra pieces of hardware that just make your life that much easier. We've rounded up some accessories for the LG G5 you won't want to miss out on.
If you use your LG G5 for literally everything you possibly can, then you might find yourself tethered to a power outlet more often than you'd like. If you find yourself needing a charge on the road, then the Aukey dual-port car charger is a great solution.
This car charger plugs into your car cigarette lighter and has two USB ports, so you can charge double the devices! The top port is a 3.0 Quick Charge port and is specifically meant to get the fastest charge out of the USB-C connection. So, grab the Aukey dual-port car charger, ditch the wall socket, get out on the road, and charge your G5 in no time.
Charging your phone in your office can be a bit of a nightmare. If you are trying to do your work, and use your phone at the same time you probably start wondering why you only have two hands.
Encased makes a neat charger that allows you LG G5 to remain upright. It may not seem like much, but when you think of how many times you touch your phone in a day, having the ability to do so without holding it sounds pretty nice doesn't?
You can plug the charger into your computer's USB port but we suggest plugging it in directly to a wall socket for the best effect.
For anyone who uses apps to workout - whether it's heavy cardio or pumping lots of iron - an armband case is a great accessory to have. You can strap your phone to your arm and not worry about dropping or damaging it.
Joto's armband cases is specifically made for the LG G5 so it fits the phone really well and feels really secure. The back of the armband also has a few card slots for you to store bank cards or a little cash so you can even run to do your errands no problem!
Added bonus of this armband is it's sweat-resistant, so it works well even for those really long runs, or intense workouts.
Screens are delicate, and can too easily be scratched and chipped but that doesn't need to happen to your LG G5. Screen protectors are life savers - or more accurately phone savers - that are a really good investment for anyone who want to keep their phones screen looking brand new.
IQ Shield offers a screen protector that is a little difficult to put on, but once you do it right it is immaculate. It uses a mild amount of liquid (very minor, don't be afraid) to really make that protector stick to the screen. IQ Shield offers a lifetime warranty and will send you a new screen protector free of charge anytime the product is damaged or defective in anyway.
We couldn't talk about accessories without mentioning the coolest one right from LG themselves and that's the Cam Plus module.
LG G5 Cam Plus module makes your phone feel like a real camera. The module snaps into bottom of the G5 and gives you access to physical keys for neat camera functions. Things like shooting,focusing, and a zoom wheel are all added with the Cam Plus.
The great thing about Cam Plus is how lightweight it is. Adding just under two ounces the module doesn't weigh down the phone at all!
