UX 5.0 is LG’s own custom layer for the upcoming G5 which is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and that comes with the goal of managing “connected” gadgets and accessories we saw in its presentation at the MWC 2016.
In the video released by LG you can see the different main features of this new layer that includes some special features such as the LG Friends Manager app that enables connecting to the LG Friends modules and accessories. Some improvements are also included in the camera, a new Home screen, the “Always on” mode and more.
As Androidcentral reports, with UX 5.0, LG has ditched the traditional app drawer, but the manufacturer will let you install one from the settings menu. Just navigate to Home and App Drawer, and you’ll be able to install a conventional app drawer.
Other enhancements include a new version of LG Health, which lets you effectively track and manage your activity goals, an app called Smart Doctor that checks if your phone is working at optimal levels, and the ability to wirelessly transfer all the content from your old phone to the LG G5 using LG Backup.
