LG has introduced an interesting concept into the smartphone market, the company offers a series of intelligent G5 accessories that enhance the phone’s capabilities. Unfortunately, they are connected to the phone via a proprietary port called Magic Slot, so accessories are exclusively compatible with this model of smartphone. Still, one of them may be connected to other devices quite easily, but not in a very convenient way.
Apparently, the audio module for LG G5 is compatible with any Android smartphone that offers USB Type-C connectivity.
It looks like an ordinary phone DAC, and headphones connected to this device will provide superior audio quality to the phone. Of course, this happens if you have a quality headset and high fidelity audio files.
The connecting method is quite simple. The accessory manufactured in partnership with Bang & Olufsen, comes with a lid to protect the connector. The lid however includes an electronic part, with a standard USB Type-C plug, which facilitates connecting to any other smartphone.
It is unclear whether this function was or wasn’t planned by LG, but those who want to upgrade audio for smartphones, now have an extra option, from a solid manufacturer in the industry, the only downside is the connecting manner and the limited number of compatible devices. You need a smartphone with USB Type-C, a Type-C USB cable, expensive headphones and songs in a lossless format.
