Upgrade is up on Monday. Love my Lg G3 but this doesn't seem like a huge improvement. Getting the impression it's all about the software these days.
I like all the features, no complaints there. My problem is, for $600 I expect to be able to send and receive phone calls from my phone. Before you say "it's your network", I have submitted 2 trouble tickets where we reset the phone, changed the settings and a few other tricks. In addition I personally have 2 other phones on the same network that work in the same locations with no problems; plus other phones on the same account (g5,g4,f6,note edge,core,L7). Wifi/ data coverage reports for the area are good. I have not choice but to believe that there is a problem with this model.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

Gosford16, 27 Apr 2016Have had my G3 since first released. Battery has died so decided to upgrade. Will bypass G4 a... moreYes, this can be done on just about any smartphone and I know the LGs support if. There is also an app for $0.20c that allows this on any phones that don't support it.
Vinnie C, 27 Apr 2016Yes, you can choose among 2G/3G/4G Auto, 2G/3G Auto, 3G Only or 2G Only Thanks buddy for the info
Have had my G3 since first released. Battery has died so decided to upgrade. Will bypass G4 and go to G5. What I love is the call and message announcements. Does the G5 have this? Saves me having to stop and check who is ringing and can hear a message and keep working. Waiting for voice recognition reply but won't be happy if announcements not included in G5. Can anyone tell me please?

I have the phone and I love it. It is much nicer when you hold it than the pictures show and the Lg launcher has just been updated and now I have the app drawer. I really love it.
Just got in.
I'm very impressed with the design. A new revolutionary design and features. Or not.
- game changer design. Should receive a merit for the design. LG pushed over it and perhaps, a success is around the corner.
- All-metal design, but something like brushed-aluminium unibody feel to it.
- Fingerprint scanner is fantastic and fast.
Of course, it's a premium smartphone, I don't have to complain or anything. It looks good, feels premium, stylish. I will try out the camera, software, and the so called "Modules"
Be right back.
Umikasama, 25 Apr 2016Isn't the 2nd Sim slot is also for the memory card? like Samsung S7.GSM Arena's specs say "(dedicated slot)" which indicates the SD card slot doesn't interfere with the second SIM. Elsewhere I'm now getting reports the SD card slot DOES interfere with the second SIM. At this point I've heard enough to believe the latter.
Doesn't the idea of cutting off your right arm to become ambidextrous sound wonderful?! Yuck, this greatly degrades the value to me and I'm now researching other possible devices. :-(
