Main differences with LG G5
The most important difference between the LG G5 SE and the LG G5 is that it has a (slightly!) less powerful processor. The LG G5 SE has an Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652, compared to the Snapdragon 820 on the LG G5. It’s also got 1GB less RAM than the LG G5, but storage can be expanded up to 2000GB with a microSD card. It’s an almost identical version of the G5, so you’re getting a brilliant device on a budget price!
Always-on QHD Display & Camera
The LG G5 SE features the impressive 5.3-inch QHD display with 1440 x 2560 megapixels, and the always-on display technology gives it a premium edge. The G5 SE is 7.3mm thick compared to the 7.7mm thickness of the G5, which is a bonus if you ask us!
It’s lightweight so it’s ideal for reading or browsing online, and it’s still small enough to carry around in your pocket. The design is the same as the LG G5 so you can remove the battery and add the modular accessories at any time.
