Except the USB-C, there is noting impressive about this phone. How is this better than the S7, M10 or X Performance?
To me it's but-ugly. I even asked all my friends and most of them agree. The G4 is superb comparing it to this. The only thing that i like is the lockscreen.
And it lacks the most important thing for a high-end flagship: WATERPROOF!
This commercial reminds me of HTC who did the one with Iron Man but still lost cos their phone was crap. Marketing won't save you if your product sucks...
LG blew it this year.

Do you expect us to believe you without any evidence? At best, you'd have an early beta phone, before even the pre-production model.

I have owned it for a long time now and have had a fantastic time using its features and accessories. The extra wide angle camera does help a lot when taking a photo of a landscape or a group of people. The S7 has no chance against it. But the battery life is a bit of a problem.
just to remind everybody that battery tests on the lg g5 were done on a pre-production unit.
I am still waiting for updated test results before making my judgement in this issue.
Since i mostly browse with the phone ,only 7 hours of web browsing is disappointing,
I hope the production units will do much better.

Well, it depends, I'm no gamer, chip is 4k capable, for better audio I can use DAC. I would buy that for the same price... I just cannot imagine changing battery in less than 7 hours(used with more than 200nits!)

Not to mention the size of a power bank compared to a battery of the same charge.
Now, if you have a spare battery, you can stick your spare battery in, and you immediately got 100% charge.
asdfunky, 30 Mar 2016Infrared port: Yes What year is it? :DFor remote control. Its 2016 but all TV's, airconds, etc still uses infrared remote control.
asdfunky, 30 Mar 2016Infrared port: Yes
What year is it? :D2016 last I checked.
I see many devices that can be readily controlled by IR. Most televisions and DVD players. I see a Nintendo 3DS which happens to have an IR port. Perhaps it isn't often used that often for communication between devices nowadays, but it is still pretty handy to have.
This is such a fantastic phone. I have owned it for 5 months already and it takes the best photos of any smartphone I have ever used! The G5 rules!

And g5 screen is not color accurate as you can see in the review. Avg delta e over 5 how the hell is that accurate. S7 is 2.3.thats accurate.
Also it has worse battery life than the g3. I mean wtf .are you kidding me lg? Very bad battery life.no wireless charging. 5.3'' is also to big for most ppl. This thing is a flop.
That battery life wow
