Pros: Performance, camera
Cons: Build quality, screen leaking, fragile screen, back button
I bought my LG G5 after owning a LG G3 which I wasn't satisified with (LG service center replaced my motherboard and battery 3 times in 3 years for free ). I gave LG another shot because everyone was saying that their new G5 is the best android phone available at that moment.
First day I used it the performance was great, it looked cool, although I was a bit suspicious of it's build quality. The third day my back button just stopped working out of nowhere so I had to use double click on the screen to unlock / lock my phone. A week later my mobile phone fell from my pocket to a hardwood floor and the screen broke. I paid for the new screen and they fixed my back button with no questions asked for free so I think it's a problem they often have. After I repaired the phone I dropped it again after 3 days and the screen broke in the exact same place. I mean, I know your phone isn't supposed to hit the floor, but if the screen breaks every time the mobile phone hits something and in the exact same place, that's a matter of build quality and it's silly to sell a high end mobile phone with such a fragile screen.
Now I'm on my way to return the phone and I will never buy any electronic device from LG again because I gave them a chance and they disappointed me.
Pros: Performance is great, camera is great, display is great, battery is removable, fast charging is incredible.
Cons: Battery life is poor, build quality is poor, ghost screen problem still exists, no equalizer in 2017 (LG pls..), bottom of the phone doesn't fit very well, speakers aren't loud enough.
Got a software update for my G5 last night in the uk of 600 plus mb,software number V20f-234-30.
Phone seems faster but otherwise I can't seem to see any other differences.

Mr Grey, 29 Apr 2017For me personally I find the G5 to be a excellent smartphone and for those who are considering... moreHey , how long have you been using the phone ? is it worth buying now, as the price has significantly fallen after the release of LG G6.
