LG G5 在 3 月的最后一天开始上市，不少拿到真机的机油迫不及待的进行测试甚至拆解。而一向以“虐机”闻名的 Jerry 在进行拆解时发现 G5 机身上貌似使用了塑料金属混合而不是全金属机身，而就这个问题，LG 官方很快的做出了回应，原文如下：
What you're seeing there is primer, not a plastic cover. As you know, primer is used to get paint to bond to aluminum, which is what we used for the G5's body. The aluminum alloy we sourced is known as LM201b (patent pending) and was developed at the Korea Institute of Industrial Technology for use in automobiles and aircraft. LM201b, unlike the aluminum used in other smartphones, is diecast unibody which makes it very sturdy while still maintaining lightweight properties. We figured out a way to integrate the antenna bands into the aluminum seamlessly so you can't feel the lines and covered the LM201b with primer and paint using a process called microdizing which means that tiny particles of metal are infused in the coating and bonded to the aluminum. I think it's incorrect to say that a product isn't all metal if paint is involved. That's like saying cars and airplanes aren't metal because they're also painted. For the record, even metal that's anodized will scratch off. Our process may be different but it achieved what we were aiming for, which is a smooth, seamless metal finish that's durable and lightweight. We weren't interested in doing what has already been done. When did this become a bad thing?
翻译过来，就是 G5 机身上类似塑料的其实是底漆（primer），因为它对于金属具有极强的吸附能力，这也是为何用在 G5 身上的原因。而 G5 使用的金属铝为正在申请专利的 LM201b，是由韩国工业研究所研发用于汽车和飞机的制造，压铸一体成型后的机身非常坚固而且轻盈。LG 找到方法将天线无缝融合在铝制机身上，如果说 G5 这样不能算作金属机身的话，那么经过涂装的汽车与飞机也不能说是金属了。我们在 G5 身上实现了平滑无缝的金属机身，并且保证了坚固耐用和轻量化，这难道是件坏事吗？
各位机油可以放心购买 G5 了，这机身可是用了在汽车和飞机上工艺，而不是一般的喷砂处理哦。（笑）
