bblover, 14 Apr 2017I want to buy new phone but can't decide between g5 and HTC 10I have both and my G5 beats the HTC 10 hands down for battery life and also the always on display is extremely useful and it just does everything really well but the HTC 10 has slightly better sound and build quality and customisation but its battery life is rubbish.
Personally I'd say get the G5
Sasi, 14 Apr 2017anyone received Nougat update in India for LG G5? looks like so much of delay...Lg doesn't care to reply even when u ask about this on their offcial twitter handle. I don't see any hopes of update coming in near future.
anyone received Nougat update in India for LG G5? looks like so much of delay...
V, 13 Apr 2017Its a flagship model and still they have not released android 7 update in india .disappointed
The only reason there customer care have is that nougat is not stable. How come other OEMs are releasing it?
The fact is LG wants to promote its new launches which have Nougat pre installed. Hence they don't care to update the existing ones. Pathetic customer service . Don't buy LG

have tried a lot of blue light filter to remedy the screen burn but only so far has worked! Been using it for 3 months now and been working perfectly. Just search it in Google Play store sFilter. :)

How to find first stock rom v10a-222-10? I got update 425mb when I turn on phone after unpacking first time. Camera update... My phone on vodafone network and free sim. Im from Serbia. Now version of rom v10b-222-10.
I did a camera shootout last night and my LG G5 came out on top over the yellowish tints of my S7e and Pixel! I said it before, G5 is my favorite smartphone of all-time. It may not look much, but its got it where it counts.
G5 is probably the closest to my perfect smartphone. I got the Sprint one which has the FM radio enabled unlike the other carrier branded ones. It has IR blaster and microSD slot up to 2TB. At 5.3", easy and fast to type on in portrait mode. Software is like 98% fluid as my Pixel while Samsung is about 75% before it starts to stutter again after a day or two.
Every time I look at my 3-year old Xiaomi Mi 3 with its severely degraded sealed battery, I smile at my G5 for offering removable and a free spare one I kept inside its package. Even if the screen quite dimmer, I prefer the colder IPS from it than the oversaturated, fake colors of AMOLED.
What I learned is never to get a curved display ever again. I had trouble just typing the letter "L" on this S7e using my right thumb. Never trust these dbrand-sponsored reviewers. The camera on the Samsung is like their displays. Produces fake colors. And never go under 5.3" and get a phone with a sealed battery. G5 was the easiest to repair last year with 8/10 iFixit score.
LG V30 could be my next phone if they offer removable battery, SD835, and smaller footprint than the V20. I am aware many people have had bad luck with LG and the bootloops. Doesn't apply to me. I love LG. Been lucky so far with Lucky Goldstar!
G5 stands alone now as my favorite phone ever breaking its tie with the Pixel after its slightly disappointing camera from last night. Closest to phone perfection from my experience owning many brands of phones. LG G5 fan for life!
I'm experiencing burn in on my lg g5. When exposed to bright sunlight, the phone ditch from dim to bright instantly and cannot function for 3 seconds. it all happens after my update to nougat. Any suggestions?
I'd love to get a G6 to replace my G5 but in the united kingdom Lg are shafting there customers good and proper by selling the G6 with no wireless charging or high powered DAC and for £700.
The G6 won't sell well here at all,think I'll go for the S8 or import a V20
FearlessOneSix, 08 Apr 2017I agree G6 is not enough of an upgrade but it is a very pretty phone. It feels pretty good to ... moreNot worth it unless you do the 50% deal with Sprint but you have to be stuck with them for 24 months and doesn't include the taxes and activation fees. But if the design and camera appeals to you enough, then wait for a permanent price drop in a few months.
You can probably find sweet deals for it at under $400 by then while some of the the early bugs and glitches would be squashed. I don't hate the G6. I actually wouldn't mind getting one but too much overkill and it doesn't offer me anything new I don't have with my trio of 2016 flagships.
iPhone Edition or Note8
I want something a little different fron each phone I plan to buy.

It feels pretty good to hold like a big smaller bezel and nicer screen iphone 5s. Tall and narrow. Yeah ill wait for more reviews for battery vs s8plus.
As for camera, idk. I tested it in the mall and it looked way better than my g5 especially the wideangle. But then again it was really bright in there and probably because of better screen... Man wow dat screen doe!
And at a carrier caled Freedom in Canada it is 839 CAD outright. About 627 USD / 591 EUR. At the g5 release last year for same carrier, G5 was 850 CAD outright. Wow!
...still going to hold back. But seriously tempted...

I already replaced fingerprint due to liquid damage and i rotate through 3 batteries and the love case uses screws (no pun intended ;D) to keep it closed but good to know there are options.
Be content owning a G5 because the G6 seems to have issues or hardly an upgrade over its predecessor -
Snapdragon 821, an SoC that OP3T and Pixels uses.
Battery life about the same.
Gorilla Glass 3 on both sides and more smudge magnet than the G5.
Camera quality is reportedly worse and disappointing on the G6 than on the G5.
LG sold out to the masses by removing swappable batteries for waterproofing and wireless charging.
G6 is basically a 2016 flat version of the Galaxy S8 or what I wished the Pixel looks like. G5 just never got the love it truly deserved. Wait for the V30 for a true upgrade, LG fans.

The protection capabilities of the case are exceptional and I can easily use my G5 in heavy rain and the case also stops dust and dirt from getting inside it,my G5 looks as new as the first time I took it out of the box.
I definitely recommend the G5 love mei case.
When is Lg G5 indian versions are getting nougat updates ??😢😢
I'm really heartbroken because I miss the G5 chubby cat..... And I don't even have a G5 but the cat is so cute and they didn't bring him back with the G6

They have new grandkids. Awwwww... ;D They were scared to change from apple but the one that got one I showed her how to adjust accessibility settings and she loves it now.
On and can you tell us a bit about that waterproof case? Like I seen it eBay but no real review there. Is the fingerprint button sealed away? And how much fatter is the phone with case on? And does the screen "rainbow?" I had a defender otterbox for my G4 and it had a rainbow sheen from the screen protector and I couldn't stand. Thanks ;)
