Anyone else still using a G5? Mines 4 years old, and i keep looking @ new phones, but nothing beats the value and lifespan of this thing. Paid like $250 for it back in 2016 and am on my 3rd battery. Still works great (except for GPS, which is very spotty, but better than nothing). About to order a new battery and give it another year or so of life!!
Hysteria, 03 Dec 2020I am still using this mobile since 2016. Tough hardware and flawless software. The only thing ... morewell it is now December 05/2020 And at present iam still running my LG-5 and great shape might be a poster cell one day lol. but the battery after all these years has only just started to drain somewhat quick so I did a reset of everything and the speed is now better all the apps had a huge part in this, other than that non issues takes awesome video and pics still love it and still using it as a spare cell with a active sim card but trust me when I say run from Fido at all costs they really do suck... this being said i have owned this cell since 2016 anyway like all things it might just go one day but until then LG if your reading this give us a dam update to newer operating sys
thanks lets the eagles fly higher.
I am still using this mobile since 2016. Tough hardware and flawless software. The only thing i had to do over the years was to buy new batteries each year.

Jazz, 05 Apr 2020Phone camera become so poor in low light even in reasonably well light it become so poor when ... morethe lens might've had condensation inside. happened to me.
Fix was to have the lens dry over the sun for an hour.
after the lg g4 boot loop and auto memory wipe, life is good when i bought my s7 edge reading all the 3880 comments most of it are a bunch of regrets. lets all move on
Why I cannot upgrade to Android 8.0 in my H860, I could from 6 to 7 but the Andoid 8 upgrade never was available, I read and here it stats that Android 8.0 is available for this model, what should I do?
Here is a problem i got in my phone lg5..only accept 1 chip tigo in tanzania east Africa ( sim card) and doesnt accept another different mobile sim card..this always happen when i trying to use different sim card...i dnt know why....?
like my LMX410 way better. everything's switched up, screen smaller, volume too low, always hitting Google asst. button, off button on side
messes with muscle memory too much. like the old set up better.
switched to Sprint (not impressed not my doing) so the lg5 basically pushed on me. like my other lg better
Simple fix is to buy a new battery that will restore the functionality of all buttons.
thaied, 31 Aug 2020More of a question to see if others had power button problems. I cna't get it on. hold it... moreSame issue. Here is the trick to turning the phone back on. First hold down the up volume button. Then while holding down the up volume button plug the phone into the charger. This should bring up the phone's logo. As soon as you see the logo let go of the volume button and pull out the charger cord. If you do not uplug it fast enough it will take you to a software download screen and you will have to remove the battery and try again. But if you unplug and let go immediately it will boot up.
More of a question to see if others had power button problems. I cna't get it on. hold it awhie and maybe. The batter won't come out. I guess welded itself inside but. What to do. NO the volume/ up-down does nothing.
I call local service shop; They say no service on LG phones Want service; buy a Samsung. YES I have it recorded with the local Pattaya, Chonburi service guy.

It is almost 4 years, I really love LG G5. Although it is old, it is still one of the best phones with a removable battery. I have always 3 backup batteries with me, never run out of battery like other modern phones. I have bought like 16 batteries, the original ones from LG when I felt that the power from batteries was not stable, I just threw them away and bought the new ones. Sadly, LG doesn't upgrade this model anymore.
