The LG G5 wasn't exactly a smash hit, nor did its modular "friends" ecosystem take off. But it's a solid phone in itself, and one of the few released in 2016 to offer a removable battery. It's also lightning fast, with one of the best phone cameras to date, in the form of a 16-megapixel main camera and 8-megapixel wide angle shooter.
The G5's Nougat update brings its software in line with the V20.
And the G5 gets even better this winter thanks to a relatively speedy upgrade to Android 7.0 Nougat. LG's home market of South Korea already has Nougat on the G5, and the update has since started to trickle out to parts of North America and Europe.
While LG's UX hasn't changed much, the Nougat update brings redesigned quick settings, overhauled notifications, proper split-screen multi-window support among other improvements.
