When the LG G5 SE was first revealed, there were suspicions that LG might be planning on competing with the Apple iPhone SE with a smaller version of the G5. Unsurprisingly, that didn’t turn out to be the case, as the G5 SE is simply a lower powered variant of the company’s flagship, similar to the HTC 10 Lifestyle. The G5 SE was made official for the Russian market last week, and a full review of the device has now been published before it has gone up for sale.
The review by [email protected] is pretty in-depth, and it looks like the G5 SE offers mostly the same experience as the regular G5. The main hardware downgrades include a step down to the Snapdragon 652 processor from the Snapdragon 820, and 3GB of RAM instead of 4GB. Things like the dual camera setup, Quad HD display, and software remain unchanged, and so does the Friends module functionality that makes the G5 stand out among the competition.
The full review can be found at the source link; the G5 SE is expected to be limited to a couple of markets, with availability set to begin sometime next month.
