LG has released LG G5 SE, G5’s younger brother who looks similar to the recently launched flagship phone of the brand. There are not many differences between the two devices, so why did the company come up with another phone with just SE added to it? Trying Apple’s trick? Let’s have a look at what’s new and what’s not with the new launch.
LG G5 SE has the same display size as G5. Both the phones sport a 5.3-inch QHD IPS display with 1440 x 2560 pixels resolution. The SE version also has fitted a 16-megapixel dual camera setup just like the original G5 phone. The battery and the operating system are also the same. Both the devices have packed a 2800 mAh battery and runs on the latest Android OS, Android Marshmallow.
Here comes the difference. While LG G5 has packed the latest Qualcomm’s chipset, Snapdragon 820, LG G5 SE is powered by Snapdragon 652. Another difference between the two phones is their memory. While the previously launched device offers 4GB RAM to buyers, the SE version offers only 3GB RAM. Hi-Tech@
If we compare the specs, the phone sounds quite decent. Whenever a cheaper version of any flagship phone is launched, buyers are left with no choice than to compromise here and there. It’s either save your money and do without a few high-end specs or put in the money and enjoy the best. With LG G5 SE, the case is no different. Whether the phone really is worth it is something we will come to know only after it reached its audience and they test it by actually using it daily. Till then, the phone looks like a pretty good deal.
