Everything perfect, except battery life. According to gsmarena, battery endurance rating for LG G2 is 81h vs 60h for LG G5. That's a huge downgrade !!!
P, 08 Apr 2016i totally agree with you mate...i was a massive fan of G2, G3 and G4...i had the G3 for 2 year... moreIs it true that the edge panels pop up when holding the phone causing a nuisance? I read that when you hold the phone other Windows or apps will open if you don't hold the phone just right. Also I heard the touch wiz sucks along w the finger print sensor??? I'm not happy w some of the g5 changes either. I'm trying to weigh out my options bc which ever phone I get I will be stuck w for the next 2 years
mir, 10 Apr 2016Its hard to take seriously these biased type of views.Its not biased, im countering what alien said which I felt was wrong
I just got the g5 today. I did the black screen bleed test on my vzw unit, no issues there, but the screen does distort on less than forceful presses. It's prominent on the left half of the screen. Other than that it seems fine, but will probably be returned and I'll wait out these first early batches.
The best of mobile is LG and will be in the future
I love LG because have KURDISH language.
Removable battery is important feature because li ion battery life cycle is max 3 years after that its efficiency will decrease. The quick charging feature will also effects the battery life cycle as it generates heat while charging . For some people a flagship phone like this is one time investment that shold last more than 3 years.
Anonymous, 13 Apr 2016Yeah its true!...lg is the best quality in camera performance. I love lg smartphones.I agree with your opinion that LG camera smartphone is very good for capturing picture in bright and low light place.
Now I use LG V10 , it is also an awesome camera phone. .it's pictures look beautiful.
I will buy one more maybe LG G5 or Samsung Galaxy S4.
AnonD-251889, 08 Apr 2016Its obvious you don't care about audio quality or the camera on this phone. The camera is one ... moreYeah its true!...lg is the best quality in camera performance. I love lg smartphones.
Vishnu, 12 Apr 2016Right now lg g5 is the only phone with, removable battery, fm radio, ir blaster,fp sensor, io... moreExcept on the battery capacity. 2800 mAh is nowhere near enough to last anywhere near respectable. Not to mention, it's a downgrade from the G2, G3, and G4.
I disappointed I can't access the fm chip through t mobile with out a headset. The camera is pretty cool with the wide angle using both rear cameras . pic quality is good slight fish eye in wide angle.
Go is the quickest smoothest phone I'very ever used and my wife has a galaxy s7 edge and it's an awesome phone to but even tho I've only had the g5 since it came out on the 1st to me the go is just a bit better. But don't get me wrong they are both awesome but the go is just a bit more ahead of it'so time.
Right now lg g5 is the only phone with, removable battery, fm radio, ir blaster,fp sensor, ios camera and barometer, so it is a no compromise phone.
this phone is truly awsome .i iam getting one #perhaps the best phone of 2016. kudos -lg -for your innovative design.
lou, 11 Apr 2016Can;t they make a cellphone that has a higher battery capacity than this 2800mAh? Cant they at... moreThis battery capacity is far superior to most, lasting for a day with ease. Having this 2800mah battery allows for a compact form factor and relative lightness, having a 4000mah battery would mean a far bigger phone. If you really want this much battery power, why don't you just buy a spare and replace it once it's flat? The bottom of the phone slides out revealing the battery, which can be replaced.
