Is The LG G5 Made Of A Layer Of Plastic Over Metal?

April 01 21:25 2016 Print This Article

Nothing wrong with plastic to us mind you, but metal does feel more premium. In a teardown done by JerryRigEverything on YouTube (embedded above), he’s revealed that the back plate of the G5 has a thick plastic layer on top of aluminum. That sort of contradicts LG’s all metal claim, but technically it is still covered in metal but just not all of it? LG’s response to this is that there’s a small insulative antenna integrated into the metal without making it look like there’s a non-metal part on the back plate. So which is it? We don’t know. But we suppose more investigation and LG debunking is needed for this.
