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?
Yes, you can choose among 2G/3G/4G Auto, 2G/3G Auto, 3G Only or 2G Only
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.
AnonD-529909, 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. :-(
What about the camera? the back and front. Is it nice? I got LG G3 but the camera is not too good in low light as it advertised.

If so, please contact the GSM Arena and tell them to update the specs on the site. This is a major difference from what they have and if using a SD card interferes with the use of a second SIM, that makes a major difference to me for one! (this was a major point in LG's favor over the S7)
Lg G5 or HTC 10 or Nexus 6P is better? Based on spec HTC wins but for the camera, the G5 win however Nexus 6P is what most people recommend.
I bought the device 2 days ago>>Really so nice>Screen is nice>Dual sim works very smooth and both 4G> Battery last 1 day heavy use and i didnt use the extra battery> The major drawback that it did not have dedicated slot for memory card as mentioned in the specifications
LG is good, But the problem is , no spare parts available in Saudi Arabia ,
I am searching for a G3 since june 2015, but still not available
LG is not producing spare parts
AnonD-519071, 23 Apr 2016This has to be unlocked for future OS upgrades ? Nope, not at all. If you're the usual target customer, this isn't an issue at all. If you're a serious power user, ie you tend to want to try Android mods then this is a major weakness. I hope to hear good news in the future, but that isn't certain.

AnonD-325712, 20 Apr 2016Lg g5 h860n is dual 4g?
Or one 4g and one 2g? Good question. Same question for one sim for 3G and one for 4 G ?
What is the uplink and down link frequencies ? I read Samsung in Asia is not the same for SAmsung in Europe. Frequencies differnt and all carriers in each country also not on the same settings. Can GSM Arena list this or the G5. ?

Pros: Quality, Features/Settings, Easy To Use, Perfor... moreGreat stuff. can either sim be bused for phone/data and swapped indepdently. I can have one set to data only for tethering and one for phone alone ?
2. is the contacts seperate per SIM. I''d assume so like all past phones; even those $5.00 Nokias.
3. The GAllery or photos are global per the phone and not per the SIM ?
