LG is producing great phone but focusing only on production. No focus in server centers and service quality.
I upgraded to G4 (818N) from G2 the day it was brought in India and I was pretty happy about almost everything. But as soon as I upgraded to Marshmallow, my phone ran into battery issues, started charging too slow and started getting hot. I dont play mobile games but battery life became half.
Ran to service centers who took 7 days just to downgrade it to 5.1 back again. They claimed they replaced the motherboard but when I checked IMEI numbers, they were caught off gaurd. They still dont have any answer on why they kept my phone for 7 days. Battery and Hot issues resolved but still struggling with slow charge issue.
Horrible experience at LG service centers. My loyalty is going to change soon. Never going to buy LG phones again.
Got my G5 od fri from best buy and absolutely love it so far, actually typing thia on it. The UX still does not have the app drawer but to be honest dont really need it because you can hide unwanted apps in the menu so home acreen is really clean, only have apps i use reguraly. The battery seemms good so far lasting me whole day so far(over 12hrs) with mod use and still had juice left. The 3.0 charging is amazing bout 50min from 15%. Battery seems better then my previous m8. Fingerprint sensor is super fast and love the locarion of it. Also the always screen is very showing notifications and is not that dim as some people say. Overall great device so far, probably my favorite i ever had....go LG
Love the LG G5! I am currently using the G2 and still its great phone. No lags, battery life is great and its nice looking phone. I will stick with the LG in future.
Shah, 03 Apr 2016Please i request you to never buy either lg g4, v10, or any other lg device because these phon... moreMy daily driver is a lg g4 at the moment and it's the best phone I have ever had but I am torn between the V10 or the G5 and the G5 could turn out to be ok and maybe it could be that people have ended up with a bad batch and the rest will be ok.
My G4 is a excellent smartphone.
Hey, does the LG G5 have the same micron pixel size as the LG G4 and LG V10???
I bought one LG G3 phone for my wife and it is still at very good condition. If LG G series screen size is more than 5.5 I am thinking to buy one. It perhaps LG G6 / G7. The battery should be of above 3200 mAH,
LG is the best phone manufacturer in the world.Galaxy s7 or s7edge does not come near LG G5.Whiles LG is bold to do something different samsung is selling old tweaked software phone to people.And Irequest no one should buy s6,s6 edge,s7,s7 edge as non removable batteries determines the lifespan of the phone

Mr Grey , 01 Apr 2016There's a couple of unboxing videos of the G5 up on YouTube and the build quality is not good ... morePlease i request you to never buy either lg g4, v10, or any other lg device because these phones are having bootloop hardware issue.
And fyi i am neither a fan of Samsung nor any other company!
No FM Radio as quoted by LG support is included unlike the specifications state. Nice IR Blaster, Voice Over WIFI, with awesome Display and Camera. I like the add on options: Battery, B&O Sound, and the 200GB optional storage.
Wow lots of samsung fan boys here.maybe they are getting paid by samsung to do that.whateva lg g5 is not as bad as u think.all these reviews are done with pre production unit not the final one so get that straight sammy .and u only hav the right to criticize this g5 only when u own it and u really know by ur own experience if its bad or not.so stop your nonsense.i will pay u double than what samsung is giving u for being honest.
we got our lg g5's in the mail Thursday. build is solid, no gaps or light bleed like what AP had on their pre release phones in their review. They're very fast, fluid, nice screens, fast charging and even skinned down. Takes great pcitures to, better than my old Icon. Friday with med-heavy useage, always on turned off, I had around 20% battery left at bed time..as good as my old lumia icon..ATT had them bogo free, so for the price imvho it was a great deal..
i bought this g5 today at supper time, it getting returned by breakfast time tomorrow , feels very flimsy , poorly constructed, slide the bottom of phone out and see for yourselves, going back to buy another the galaxy ,
I will buy this phone when LG G6 is launched, in order to get the best/low price.
