LG's G5 B&O Hi-Fi DAC: Thoughts From An Audiophile Skeptic

Hi. It's not often I put on my "audiophile skeptic" hat here at Android Police, but, well, I felt compelled today. As you may be aware, LG has a phone called the G5. That phone has an accessory called the Hi-Fi DAC, which is a little black box with a B&O logo on it. I've used the B&O Hi-Fi DAC with our compatible pre-production G5 (this does not affect the "quality" of the DAC). It is, in short, exactly what I expected.

I was not necessarily expecting quite the... loving embrace that I've seen some critics give it. While the G5 itself has seen fairly mixed reviews, the Hi-Fi DAC seems to be getting a pass as the highly-desirable one of two chin modules LG has launched with its new smartphone.

T-Mobile LG V10 To Get Marshmallow Update Starting Next Week

Some people would consider the V10 to be LG's most exciting phone of last year. If you agree with the tone of David's review of the G5, it still may be LG's best device.

Those of you who use one on T-Mobile's network are in for a treat. The carrier apparently plans to start sending out over-the-air updates next week.

Editorial: Smartphones And Luxury Brand Partnerships Are Not New, But Are Generally Meaningless

The Huawei P9, the latest flagship from the ascending Chinese brand, has been announced sporting the Leica mark on its camera module. This is because Leica is a well-known luxury camera and optics manufacturer whose products range from around $1000 to upwards of a small German luxury sedan. While Leica's merits in its own field could be debated ad nauseam in their own right, I don't want to get into that - I do want to get into why its name is plastered on a Huawei phone.

The reason, ladies and gentlemen, is value by association. The Leica brand is associated with products that evoke the image of luxury and privilege, of wealth and prestige - at least among some consumers.

The LG G5 Is Just As Easy To Repair As The G4: Gets An 8/10 From iFixit's Teardown

The guys and girls at iFixit like tearing down gadgets, not for the thrill of shredding a poor phone in a blender or crushing it under 10 tons of bricks, but for scientific and nerdy purposes. They like figuring out how a phone is exactly built, how you can take it apart and put it back together, and how easy it is to fix at home for ordinary people who only have a couple of tools and enough common sense to follow instructions.

Most of the devices iFixit has gone through in recent times have gotten poor repairability scores. Thanks to the move to unibody designs and non-removable batteries, phones like the Galaxy S7 and Nexus 6P got a measly 2 out of 10 score.

LG took a lot of heat (deservedly) for its decision to remove the app drawer from its stock launcher on the G5. It eventually showed off a different version of the home screen in its recent UX 5.0 video. That one had an optional app drawer, and now that version (named Home 4.0) is available for download.

The LG G5's Metal Frame May Actually Be Coated In Plastic [Update]

LG has said repeatedly that the LG G5 has a metal alloy body with cleverly hidden antennas. The company didn't really go into detail about how that was achieved, except to say the process is called micro-dizing. It seems that micro-dizing may have something to do with plastic because a teardown video from YouTuber JerryRigEverything reveals what appears to be a plastic coating on top of the metal frame.
