The LG G5 is still newly unleashed and already a slightly varied version has appeared, dubbed the LG G5 SE.

The LG G5 SE was reviewed on Russian site Hi-Tech but has otherwise had no official details pushed out.

While the SE is a slightly less high powered version of the G5 it still packs in impressive specs that make it better than a lot of other phones right now. It also looks near identical to the LG G5, USB-C and all. And, of course, it features the G5's modular ability to swap out accessories.

The LG G5 SE has the same 5.3-inch QHD IPS display as the G5 meaning a 2560 x 1440 resolution. It also has the same 16-megapixel dual camera setup and 2800mAh battery plus it runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

What's different in the G5 SE is the processor which is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652, rather than the 820 found in the G5. The SE also has a lower 3GB of RAM rather than the 4GB found in the flagship. Despite these being small changes the reviewer does mention that while trying to record 4K video the handset did struggle.

The price is listed as 50,000 rubles which is about £518. So it's up there with the other flagship phones for pricing and is actually more than the £500 G5, leading us to suspect this is a Russia only release, for now.

RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
