Irfan, 25 Aug 2018Very Good Phone... Except for Screen Retention.. It's Worst on This.Screen retention/persistance or any kind of burn-in alike is pretty sounds normal problems on LG G5. For those who have this problems, I suggest to turn off your G5 and leave it for a few days, so you won't available with your phone for a couple days. It's not 100% effective but it's worth to give it a shot. If it does, it may not eliminate the problems permanently, but it may for a long run.

Very Good Phone...
Except for Screen Retention..
It's Worst on This.
Anonymous, 23 Aug 2018Of the LG G5 or Nokia 7 plus which is better? Focus: Camera Screen quality Audio The main camera on G5 is very good and should be better than N7+. Plus, I'm pretty sure you'll appreciate wider-angle camera rather than telephoto lens. G5 has QHD compared to FHD on N7+ so better, sharper goes to G5. I've never used N7+ but I used my little sister G5 just bought few days ago for music playback, no complaints at all. Just good and practically no distortion but decent on volume clarity (when using any headphones or external amplifier). Loudspeaker is good, sounds bassy and pretty loud.
lg g5 is still my baby.

sprung, 21 Aug 2018This is for a Rogers LG G5, model LG-H831 in Canada. Pros - great camera, love the wide angle... moreI use sFilter PRO and the image retention never returned for BOTH my LG G5 and V20. I can now use that gray wallpaper that matches nicely with my silver G5.
Both 2016 LG flagships which were the last flagships to offer removable battery are two of my favorite smartphones of all-time. Even if I never use them again as my main phones, I can use both as my TV remote for many more years...
This is for a Rogers LG G5, model LG-H831 in Canada. Pros - great camera, love the wide angle lens. IR blaster , great for changing TVs in bars/clubs/etc. Removable battery. Nice to have option for swapping it out.
Cons - Mine developed burn-in fairly quickly . Getting it replaced under warranty with Rogers. Short battery life. Doesn't last nearly as long as other phones that I've had in the past. Still stuck on Android Nougat. Oreo not slated to arrived until October if at all. FM radio not activated on this model.

Pepe, 16 Aug 2018My g5 died in the swimming pool so I've bought the g7 TinQ. I prefer my old G5 for the reas... morein day light because at night if we use manual mode g4,g5 ,v10 and v20 has a better sensor
My g5 died in the swimming pool so I've bought the g7 TinQ.
I prefer my old G5 for the reasons below:
- Wider camera
- Removable battery
- Size. G7 is too long and falls from my pocket.
- And a very important one to me: HDMI output
G7 over the G5:
- Better screen
- Water proof
- Sighltly better performance.
There is not a big difference in performance.
Camera in the g7 is better, but on the g5 you can install Google Cam Mod, and in can't find any mod working on the g7.
In my opinion is not worth update from the G5 to the G7
I bought G5 for birthday gift to my little sister since she doesn't like bigger phone (I want to buy for her G6 but 5.7 is pretty big), better camera (looks on some camera reviews that G5 has better camera than G6) and she really loves it. By the way, comparing the G5 with my S7 edge and pretty agree that G5 has better camera (comparing 16MP on G5 to 12MP on S7 edge).
Susetyo, 13 Aug 2018Can i just using wifi to update it ?Only if your phone is non Verizon, if you have the version VS987 it means it's a Verizon model and you can only update via WiFi if you have an active Verizon 4G sim card, if you don't have an active verizon sim card, you can only update via PC in the instructions i gave bellow in the comments.
Anonymous, 30 Jul 2018I bought my phone 1 week ago, and one thing annoys me is it suffered ghosting or some kind of ... moreI have same problem to. Then i Install the screen burn in tool app on play store. It's not a permanent repair but it work's well
Amazing phone. My one is lg g5 h830 i.e. t-mobile version. Its been 2 years I bought it. It is still strong and powerful. The only issue which is quite annoying to me is overheating. Easily increases to 38-40C from 30-33C. Other than that everything in one word is spectacular. Antutu benchmark score of the phone is 150000. I am really impressed.
Susetyo, 09 Aug 2018Can you update the software version of the lflg g5 verizon without using a verizon sim card ? ... moreYou don't need a Verizon Sim to update, you need to run the Verizon upgrade assistant, that software is your own phone, connect the phone to the PC and the phone's USB options choose "Software installation" mode and then a window will open in your PC and will appear a VZW_software exe file...
Install it and then disconnect your phone and connect again this time choose USB mode File transfer and then in your computer, look for the VZW Software upgrade assistant in the right side of the taskbar and look for a white rectangular bar icon, that's the VZW Software, double click and just follow the instructions.
Can you update the software version of the lflg g5 verizon without using a verizon sim card ? I'm trying to use lg bridge to update it but the lg bridge always says can't connect to the device
