LG G5 prototypes

Mobile World Congress

Smartphones go through a lot of stages before they're finally birthed. And a good number of those stages — much like most of us at one point or another in our lives — are filled with awkward moments. Odd lumps and bumps in what now is a smooth, svelte specimen of a man. We're talking about someone other than me, obviously — but we're also talking about the LG G5. LG brought with it to Barcelona a sampling of the prototypes that came before it — a rare look into the actual production and design pains of a smartphone.

Maybe curves didn't quite make the cut. Maybe lines were off and finishes not quite perfect. Or maybe they were just bad ideas to begin with.

In any event, it's a cool look at where the LG G5 came from.
