Got my lg g5 b4. Had to return the phone back to to the store. Had several issues. Bootloop and no signal bars. Also experienced extreme heat on the device. At the same time everytime i called, the recipient cant hear my voice after 3mins. Repaired the phone under warranty. Got the phone with almost three months of waiting (I was nearly going crazy waiting). Got the phone few days back. Phone is is fine right now. I hope there will be no issues at all. Sad to say you need to pay for an expensive phone and you cant use it for three months. Soo frustrating.
Anytime i enter my password after switching on my phone i receive a msg indicating my password is wrong. I am then asked to try again in a number of minutes. this time has been increasing and it is now over a thousand minutes. What can i do about this? I am getting frustrated.

LG,and the difference's gonna be bigger with each IOS update. Apple is widely known for making their oldest devices slower so you have to buy the newest one.

Then check, I'm pretty much sure you won't face it. It is nothing related to LG S/w Update, rather it is related to App update that is the culprit here :)
The G5 on nougat has absolutely brilliant battery life and I'm a heavy user and I have been using my G5 all day today doing multiple things like calls,texting,YouTube,Internet and gaming and my G5 has currently 31% battery at half ten at night,that's plenty left.
This phone is epic and it blows away my HTC 10 battery life,that phone would need charging twice by now.
huge issue - if u r in roaming network , u will not be able to download and update apps from play store using roaming data network.this is not LG issue but all smartphone manufacturer who provided nougat update. if ur mobile network not in roaming then u do not need to worry.
after update hard reset your phone otherwise u will get low battery backup and heating issue. just hard reset and good to go.

What that software is doing is acquiring the resources and not releasing it. So, it is some bad software that you need to check which one it is.
When you restart configuration gets reset as while powering off you are disconnecting from software.
I was fairly certain that I would buy an LG G5, but the thing that convinced me was the LG G6 specs. I preferred the G5 and it hasn't disappointed me in any respect. It was an unlocked phone though and getting updates (or Nougat) for the Canadian H831 model is proving a challenge.
BTW - The LG G5 works well with the Diamond DS3900V2 docking station and the Diamond BVU3500H HDMI adapter. I can connect to the BVU3500H either directly from the LG G5, or via an ANKER 7-port USB 3 hub.
Just got my G5 unlocked for domestic use about 5 minutes ago. It was internationally unlocked from Sprint last week. I felt a little bad when I saw Best Buy basically offering it for $120 (5x24) but I forgot I got a $100 credit from them so I only paid about $140. The phone is totally worth it. People bash its design when it still looks sexier than the Galaxy S5 and Note 4. You won't find many flagships these days with removable battery, FM radio, and IR blaster. They usually omit features like that now along with 3.5mm headphone jack.
LG G5 is the best all-around smartphone ever for me. Plan to stick to Marshmallow. I didn't like that Nougat omitted that Flappy Droid Easter egg that we saw in Android 5 and 6.
Strange problem after updating to nougat. Fast charging is gone. Now it takes 30 mins+ to charge just 10%.
Best Buy has it going for $5 per month signing up for Verizon, Sprint, or AT&T. That's $120. Maybe up to $170 if taxes and new activation is included. That's the cheapest Snapdragon 820-powered smartphone you can find.

LG , fix the da*n phone!

You are not going to find the LG launcher smooth and light like what you find with the Google Nexus series phones though, but you do get a lot more customized features that you will not have on vanilla android.
