Bought a second one but is the RS988 variant. Still my favorite smartphone of all-time. I lost FM radio though but I couldn't care less since my V20 has it.
This Lucky Goldstar phone could also be lucky for me. I was able to get $200+ delivery DoorDash orders on back-to-back Saturdays which made me earn about $60+ in less than an 1 hr of work.
Keeping it on Marshmallow 6.0.1 for good. Oreo isn't as bad as iOS11, but it's no big deal either. Once people start updating to Oreo, I can already hear the outcry for it that it ruined their battery life or whatever.
LG G5 has 1295 fans. Let's cross 1.3K. As underrated as the PS Vita.

I try to think about phones I might want like the iPhone X or V30. And I just can't find any because I don't like all-glass rears and whatever feature they eliminated.
I'm close to my personal smartphone nirvana as is and should be fine for the rest of the decade. Most of what I read here is the greed and lust inside of me.
Just be content with what you have and use your phone for as long until it dies. But I figure ADHD people want that new, honeymoon phase feeling again every 1-3 years, so they will continue to purchase new phones they don't really need just for that temporary feeling to show off and look good.
Phones have become shoes or new purses. Fashion. Greed. Catered to hipsters where design matters most. Planned obsolescence like sealed battery and no expandable storage. Apple ruined the industry. Bad Apple is cancerous.
Anyone tried using OTG in this device.? Tried using mine and the phone was so lag. Phone function is stuttering. what about yours?
Today i have test my g5 with galaxy s6 edge opening subway speed. The galaxy win by partially of one second.... My question how that?
Debu, 12 Oct 2017Im using lg g5 h820 at&t .its don't share internet with hotspot.touch sensible is very low... more+1 to go to xda forum g5 att hotspot fix advice..
for your software update(Marshmallow to Nougat), download and install LG Bridge to your pc/laptop then connect your phone. A software update should let your phone be upgraded to Nougat.
Im using lg g5 h820 at&t .its don't share internet with hotspot.touch sensible is very low.battery drein quick.how to unklock hotspot service.no update is available stil 10.10.2017
My LG G5 camera glass broke; smashed when phone is dropped. Try getting that fixed.
No support outside USA and since my H860 is not a USA number; they don't talk.
OK no country talks, India, EU, ME, Korean, Saudi, PHiillipines So there is no sercvice outside USA and you must buy in USA.
NOw tell me why I should ever think of LG again ?
Sunny, 08 Oct 2017Hi Guys, I am planning to buy LG G5 very soon as my need is Dual Sim Card, but got to know ... moreH860 is dual sim nano...but you cant insert two sims with memory card .then if you want two sims you cant insert the memory card .. If you put memory card you will use only one sim
I am planning to buy LG G5 very soon as my need is Dual Sim Card, but got to know it has hybrid Sim card slot. So can anyone confirm how many SIM card and Micro SD card it can accomodate.
My Requirements are Dual Sim Cards, 4GB+ Ram, Snapdragon 820 and Very good Camera hence chose LG G5. Open for other suggestions as well.

No more blo... moreAbsolutely agree with staying on android 6 marshmallow. 2 of my friends sold G5s because of nougat. I stuck to Marshmallow and no problems except for hardware. Its been one year and when my new battery arrives I'm going to factory reset. See if I can't get 5+ hrs screen time again.
Might go pixel 2 XL fox Xmas... if in stock :/
My G5 RS988 arrived yesterday and my all-time favorite phone just got even better. No more bloatware and my Sprint that would stop recognizing any sim which made it difficult to sell on Craigslist.
I kept it on Marshmallow. I will miss split-screen but Nougat ran my old G5 a little warmer and used up 10-15% more RAM. I believe MM is the best version of Android and lightest on RAM since KitKat.
Emojis on SwiftKey are also better with MM. It uses the LG emojis. When I updated my G5 LS922 to Nougat, SK uses the ugly default blobs from Google's keyboard. LG ones look more normal and what we would see on Oreo or on iOS.
Stick to Android 6.0.1 for as long as you can. I used Nougat and Oreo and neither are that special. Latest version I wouldn't mind using is Nougat 7.1.2. Oreo ruined my Pixel's battery which made me sell it. Oreo is still gppd though and not as horrendous as iOS11.

And the extra problem which it can't be fixed... the poor battery life.

You are not the only one saying it's full of problem but it almost seems like a troll because none mentioned any of the problems
I've had this phone for about 10 months now and I guess I've been one of the lucky ones because the phone has been great for me hopefully it will last me another year and two months lol
ahmed banna, 30 Sep 2017What are the small issuesHad nothing but rouble with this phone and every LG phone I've had. Really won't recommend this phone at all.
Ian, 01 Oct 2017I got the model H860. If you talk about v20i then it is slower than v20g and the fast charge sign disappear after a while from charging ...on antutu v20g is more better than v20i...and my touch told me that .... Wait for next update
