I've had the LG G5 for about 3 weeks now, and I think that is enough time to really get to know the phone.
First off my initial impressions of the build, speed and camera were spectacular. Lightning fast for a 2 year old phone, camera is super detailed and the build just feels right in my opinion.
Until I realized how fast the battery started to drain, like each percentage was dropping by the second, like the battery turned into a 100 second timer, you can fix this by using a quick charger but it still drains super fast because of the stock 2800mah battery.
This really bummed me out considering the quality of the rest of the phone.
I was ready to go back to my previous phone, until I found a 4050mah battery replacement, which made the battery life turn from seconds to a full day of usage.
Now that I've replaced it with the new battery I can proudly say it is the best phone ive ever used.
You can get this for under $100 on ebay refurbished , I would totally recommend getting that.
Just make sure you get the 4050mah battery replacement which can go for around $15 on ebay.
Salam n peace to all. I got G5 about a year now...just amazing phone after v10. But now 4gb ram is less for my usage. I've tried all Huawei P10plus and 5T.. I think only HUAWEI gives all full specs, with SD CARD, INFRARED now adays. If anyone who can tell me which phone with 6GB RAM / 128GB ROM, beats or at-least comes up to level with LG phone cameras? I mean literally exact or above quality of night low light pictures. WHICH PHONE ?? Thanks.

AnonD-551263, 03 Jun 2018i rather buy a 4350mha losoncoer battery awodo they ship outside US? and how was the battery? do you use a battery charging kit?
well guys better wait for official update rather than trying to make a downgrade like the one I did ... was scare about bricking my phone .... flash tool didn't work only program worked for me was LG UP with UPPERCUT reason. well tried to take it from nougat to marshmallow but didn't know that there is a f...g thing about anti roll back lg implemented I think that rather of wasting efforts on stuff like this they should make sure of updating their devices quicker any way .... I could not ... had to use fucking bright point version of nougat in order to fix my phone because had no OS .... well in next couple of days ill try to root and flash a custom 6.0 to see what happens ...
I don't know other devices but on g5 rs988 nougat is terrible update no because it is slow or anything like that but for me there might be something with permissions or something messing with reading / writing on external storage, I have a Samsung 128gb card evo select U3 class , I own as well a SanDisk 64gb V30 class as well and none of them work fine when playing games trough emulators such fpse or drastic Ds emulator for some reason while gaming there is a kind of lag that it is not performance related but an annoying lag that occurs some times during the game. worst even I tried to run a test using A1 sd app for test read/write speed and curiously ram was ok internal and external fine but when reading but writing I get 0 MB speed what the ..... after checking permission for the app I found it disabled so I was something that was enabled before .... ill try to gte back to marshmallow technically because when ever I purchased brand new 2 months ago it came with 7.0 so I had to make homework and look for kdz and flashtool.... ill give a try to see what happens ....
any body have face something similar will be great help
