ahhhh it's ugly! totally ugly! and for the battery... seriously ??? just 2800mAh???? Lg might be kidding
Dun understand why some consumers do not like the LG G5, LG sincerely kept the removable battery so that consumers got the right to own and check the battery, and not service technicians. We should appreciate what they did there.
The desain is very terrible,how could you do this LG!!!LG G4 is still the best!
The reasons why LG G5 is a downgrade compared to V10 and why the G5 is a big disappointment:
LG G5 is missing these features that V10 has:
- manual video settings,
- app drawer,
- dual window,
- Q slide
- FM Radio
- removable back cover (makes it easy for 3rd party battery manufacturers like Zerolemon to create bigger extended battery)
- adoptable storage (it's an Android 6 feature that is missing from G5 and probably V10 also won't get it when upgraded to Android 6)
lol, 21 Feb 2016the sad truth is that the today's S7/S7Edge has everything I expected from G5: better battery,... moreI agree with you, except the amoled part. Samsung's Amoled Always On display will burn in.
AnonD-249419, 21 Feb 2016Worst design i've ever seen in smartphone industry. I concur with you. I don't even see what LG is doing anyway, I simply kid them, but seriously, how on earth could they even think that this design might pull of, again, considering from even LG's standards?
Daytan, 21 Feb 2016Too big (didn't iPhone teach anything with its ideal size of 4.7"?) and battery is disappointing. Yep, that's why Apple makes Iphone Plus now.

Curved body. Buttons on the back. Color sensor. Laser focus. Genuine leather. Second display. But your approach is inconsistent and it is like mad ingenious scientist; lot of brilliant ideas but lack of concept. G4 with 808 chipset - not for gamers. G5 - it's all about gaming and playing. Etc. G4 with leather back is still the best you made, if only with metal frame around...
I am happy that lg kept IR blaster. This is infact one of the most perfect smartphone of this years . The only thing which I dont like is its design. Lg needs to improve its design . lg g4 was better looking than this one. But still great job Lg. I will for sure buy it because samsung removed the ir blaster. Will buy it as soon as it reaches to my country.

Daytan, 21 Feb 2016Too big (didn't iPhone teach anything with its ideal size of 4.7"?) and battery is disappointing. I think that 4.7 inches is way to small and I find my galaxy s5 at 5.1 perfect though I also really like my dads 6 plus at 5.5.
2800mAh and design killed it badly. Something I loved about LG phones was their taste for an eye catching phone, but this is fighting with Nexus 6 for ugliness. One thing I learned from owning G3/G4 is that they really fail at tweaking their kernel for performance:effitiency. Neither are good with LG. I feel sorry for the 2800 Li-Ion. Some how Li-Ion have shorter lasting and lifespan than Li-Po. Learned that form my Note 5.
For those people who are worring about radio,it has fm radio,just check some videos on YouTube and you will see when they move around the aplications,it is under tools I believe ,it has fm radio that's for sure.
ju, 21 Feb 2016It's not 5.5.... G5 is smaller than g3 and g4, measuring a 5.3 inches of Quad HD screen.But much bigger than 5.2 inch LG G2. Check screen to body ratio. LG you are doing worse and worse unfortunately in the mobile business!
