I'm using this phone for 10 month since august 2016, this is my opinion :
- Battery not gotten worst, i still have 3 to 4 hrs SoT and have 2 battery kits, but i can say the battery not as good as samsung device
- Display still good till today and i'm not planing changing my device since 2k resolution still limited to flagship device (i have no problem, no ghosting, no burn, etc and i already tested it with LCD Tester)
- Great Speaker
And the cons i met :
- My Battery Cover (the place u put the battery) starting to have a gap with the device (but who cares because my phone still working properly)
- Keyboard have a little lag after i updated to nougat
- Fast charging made my device hot
- Hard to get LG accessories in my country (Indonesia)
But overall its a great device and at the daylight, my photos still greater than S7 edge (when u zooming in).
This is an excellent phone. It looks nice and the fingerprint entry is brilliant. I have always had Samsung, but this model seems better. The camera is awesome, and the speed of processor is very fast. Plenty of memory. Audio great. It even has fitbit! Best of all, you can replace the battery. I can also connect to my PC easily through wifi, and the phone doesn't need to be rooted. 10 out of 10.
Great phone, everything runs fast and no lag at all, the camera and the manual mode are just amazing, the display very vivid and clear... only downside is the battery life, kind of short.
Go for LG G5se. Excellent camera, photos and videos. Great android 7 OS. excellent phone for everyday use. I would not change it for anything.

It all comes down to what you want from a smartphone. If you want a decent camera, go for the lg. If you want to be able to customise the o's go LG. If you want an amazing phone experience go for the lg. If I were you I would choose the lg over an iphone any day. The lg has a stunning 2k screen whereas the standard iPhone 6 has a 720p screen which is nowhere near as sharp as the lg.
Hi, i need help choosing the right phone between G5 SE and iphone 6, which one more smoother and no laggy operation? I dont play games, only for browsing, soc media and whatsapp. For long time use, lets say 3-4 years, does g5 se will become laggy ? Thanks
I having trouble deciding which phone i should choose between a lg g5 se and a huawei p10 lite
Can you five me a few pros and cons and help me decide please.
Your help will be much appreciated
ianik, 14 May 2017and what about the camera module? it is worth to buy? The camera module is exactly the same as lg G5 4 GB so the best camera in 2016...
has anyone tried the B&O DAC? does it really bring something to the phones sound?? or you must be a real audiophile to hear the difference?
Happyswift, 11 May 2017Guys, how is the battery life and screen on time with this device. I see some complaints about... moreI have this phone about a week ... I think sd652 do nice work.. If you take the small 2800mah battery and the qhd screen do great job.
I play about 30 min Pokemon all the time 4g open and Wi-Fi. Fb-chat Viber msg etc and I take from 3.30 -4 hours SOT so you don't say it bad at all for this small battery and QHD SCREEN
Guys, how is the battery life and screen on time with this device. I see some complaints about the G5 but as this device has a lower-end processor and less RAM I thought that it could better on the SE?
Anonymous, 11 Apr 2017After little research i made ..Guys, i guess no european h840 lg5se models exist yet.. they ar... moreEuropean versions do exist.
Mine is EUR and I got it for free for contract renewal in Austria. It's branding free and came with 6.0.1. About a week ago, I got the Nougat update for it OTA.
The Euro versions have different OS and baseband software. Software versions are like v10a-EUR-xx (Marshmallow) or v20a-EUR-XX (Nougat).
Can confirm Nougat update for European version of the G5 SE.
It's v20a-mar-10-2017, Android security patch level from early March. The device is a branding-free G5 SE which I got for free for contract renewal a couple months ago.
Updated fine OTA and haven't run into problems so far, except an issue with widgets not updating using my Action 3 launcher. That problem was solved with the next launcher update (probably was a known issue already).
Battery life is hard to tell. It's not worse, but if it's better then only marginally so. The Nougat features are all there and the dark theme(s) for the System UI are a nice touch.
Manred, 04 May 2017It is gorrila glass buy its a Thin later of glassIs it because of ultra slim design or it thin like on older g5?i guess ultra slim 7.3mm thickness make it worse

I have a serious problem with my Phone !!
It's about a month old.. This morning the battery was as low as 2% and then the mobile powered off due to the battery...
I connected it to the charger and it doesn't respond to charging !! I thought the battery is too low and i left it for half an hour and nothing .. I tried troubleshooting by removing the battery and putting it again it worked but the time of the mobile was wrong ,though the date was right..
Since then whenever the mobile turns off it never turns on again unless i remove the battery and put it again !!
Another problem happened now .. The mobile is connected to the charger for like half an hour and the battery level never changes .. Thought the sign of charging is normally displayed !!
I am very disappointed from the battery life too, it lasts around 5 hrs only if data network is on .. Is this common !!
