Using Open Camera app from the Play Store which now lets me adjust the MP resolution. I prefer 1920x1080p as each photo only eats up 700kb. My only qualm with the app is not being able to use the wide-angle shot. I just do a slide up gesture (Nova Launcher) on the Open Camera app to go back to the default camera app in case I want the wide-angle back.
The Open Camera app has now made the G5 the go-to cameraphone along with the Pixel for video recording. Planning to use bring the G5 and Pixel to Del Mar and take photos and videos of Arrogate next Saturday. G5 still my favorite phone but Pixel and V20 are very, very close to it. G5 has an underrated design on the front.

Will, 14 Jul 2017Hey guys should i go with the galaxy s7 or the g5 :/ reply please ☺How long do you want to use this phone, and what do you want to do with it?
The S7 is unquestionably prettier and more pleasant to use in full sunlight.
The G5 is more versatile for power users because of the USB Type C port and the alt modes LG packed in there to support all those friends that never happened. But hey! seriously, you can use a bunch of different adapters or cables to connect this little beast directly to tvs, monitors, external hard drives (watch the FAT16 limitation of Android), mouse and keyboard--the list seems to go on and on. On top of that, you have options from the earphone jack, bluetooth, DLNA, wireless streaming, and an IR blaster. I have an unlimited data plan through my mobile carrier and stream HD to my tv- for that, I think a cable is better. My phone is in constant use, with the screen on. I have 6 batteries and 2 charging cradles. It's plenty safe to carry an extra battery around in a plastic baggy. LGs testing includes shooting nails through batteries to make sure they won't explode. There are videos online of drop and water tests. If it should break, its the easiest phone ever to take apart and fix. Both phones are now half or less of their original retail price.
Will, 14 Jul 2017Hey guys should i go with the galaxy s7 or the g5 :/ reply please ☺As a cell phone seller, I highly suggest the G5. Ive never really had complain about the LG brand instead of Samsung who gets alot of complaint

Green., 10 Jul 2017Kindly tale whats lg g5 screen on time?Maybe 5-6 hr SOT just browsing using Opera Mini (which saves battery) with 50-70% brightness.
In most instances, 3.5-5 hrs. It does really well when streaming YouTube or playing videos. Standby is generally excellent and it charges really fast like up to 90% in less than 1 hr.
Vegeta5, 09 Jul 2017I still have an lg g2 and I am planning to buy a new phone .. So I wanna ask if the lg g5 can ... moreI have an LG G2 too. And i'm going to buy an LG G5.
I believe that it's better than LG G2. LG G5 has new chips inside it. Personally i prefer LG than other brands.
For example, LG G5 hasn't a huge screen as other phones you have refered. You have to see carefully, what the other brands offer, and you have to make ypur decision.
HEADER LINE FOR MODELS
lOVE THE HEADER TO INClude models. Where is the H860. LG does not know. its in Europe and ME yet no one has support or can tell you about models and software/firmware upgrades.
What web site would include this to actually advise anyone of updates.
Cracked screen last night. I was holding the phone while trying to open the door. I lightly pressed the screen against the doorknob. Boom. Screen cracks. Sucks. I hate glass screen!!!!!! Prone to cracks!

Green., 10 Jul 2017Kindly tale whats lg g5 screen on time?well like I said on my post I didn't watch any movies for that period of time. but my estimated on screen time is around 23hours mainly facebook and instagram. average youtube and twitter. I always turn off wifi and mobile data if im not using it and I always disable background refresh and GPS. also I clear recent apps every once in a while. brightness is around 30-45% . Don't get me wrong this is just my personal experience and im in no way claiming that all battery life is same for all G5 units out there but hey you can always get the G5 battery kit. saved me many times when Im binge watching on the go.
HUH, 06 Jul 2017Got me one. My 7 year old Nokia N8 still takes better photos at daytime. What is going on ? Su... morelatter Nokia devices were always better in the ways that samsung and lg were forsaking for better on paper specs. My old $500 galaxy S4 after less than a year of use without case looked just awfull and its back cover got a few cracks, yet my mom's lumia 735 after 3 years still looks very good even though she used it without case as well, and it takes rather very good pictures with its 6.1 Mpixels camera. At least bright light photographs are quite on par with the lg g5's but get a bit blurry sometimes.
