Bigger battery. And bigger screen. It has 2 screens actually. ;D
I actually would have bought it as an upgrade but the thing really is huge but it feels like it could take a beating. But the G5 has better low light front cam. Yeah, I take a lot of group selfies at the bar and at parties. Yeah we vain and phone companies know it ;P
Pretty sick phone. Should have been made with a larger screen and a bigger battery. Beautiful screen, though, for an IPS. A million times better than the G4.
Been using lg g5 . Awesome phone. I have a question though. About the camera. I selected video recording FHD60P. I recorded 4 mins video and the size was 528mb. Soo large. Is this normal. Any response bout this guys.

Been using my G5 since 9 this morning when it was at 100% battery and I'm currently at 4 hours screen on time at half 9 at night with 5% battery left.
Not bad to be fair for the size of the battery the G5 has.

Mr Grey, 03 May 2017I do love my G5 but I admit I do miss the big screen of my G4 and especially the v10 I had and... moreLast night, the V20 initially lagged during setup and got hot. Probably has to do with all the bloated T-Mobile apps downloading. Happened to my S7 edge setup too. Probably a TMo thing. This did NOT happened to my G5 or Pixel though.
I noticed the micro-lag early on when browsing. Then I did the typical 0.5x animations, turned off auto update in Google Play settings and auto sync, rid of Facebook, installed SwiftKey, and everything is pretty smooth now. I do believe the G5 is more sensitive to my touch. Will install Nova Prime later and see how it goes.
I really didn't think I would like the huge screen but ever since I got my Note 3 has a hand me down just six months ago, I got used to these "surfboard" phones pretty quickly. Typing on my 5" phones like the Pixel feels kinda cramped now.
Hopefully, the V20 will be a pretty great phone like the G5 and Pixel are. Those two seem a tad smoother than it so far. I could return it in two weeks for a refund but there is a $50 restocking fee. I already like typing on it far more than the annoying S7 edge curved display.
I don't like where LG is headed this year and going for sealed battery on flagships. V30 might go sealed. Removable battery, ftw! G5 and V20 could be the last of their breed among flagships. Both underrated af too.
The image retention on my G5 does not bother me at all and goes away. I like the second screen. I put the Philippines flag emoji from SwiftKey along with my name (???'s) and LG V20.
Haven't tested the battery or camera yet on the V20 but I expect it to be pretty good. Speaker sound is pretty good to on par with G5 which makes it louder than S7e and Pixels. Haven't tested the internal audio yet but I did like it having a FM radio app. My G5 needed a third-party FM radio app and can only hear from the headphones. No speaker mode. Don't like NextRadio. Too many ads.
I see comments saying the G5, V20, and Pixel are all UGLY. LOL! Those users missed out on the meaning of life! I actually get alot more attention with them than the common Samsungs. G5, V20, and Pixel are far more rare where I live. I prefer owning phones not everybody has. Within just a day, I can already sense I will enjoy V20 far more than the overrated S7 edge.

I can get a V20 for alot less than the G6 and it has way more features also,plus obviously the removable battery.
Hello Guy. I just want to ask do i have to turn on something in the settings to have my OTG be read by the G5? I just bought a USAMS type c adaptor and used my old flash drive but its not being read. as in no response at all. I don't know if the adaptor is not compatible or the format is not supported or other reasons.

I just got a V20 like 30 minutes ago! Titan grey but it looks more matte black to me. I was supposed to use the $528 rebate card I got in the mail to pay off the S7 edge instead. I ended up getting a 10th phone and 5th one with removable battery for $538 total ($480 + extra upgrade fee and taxes) I think this V20 is security in case I sell off my S7 edge this weekend.
I love LG. We will see how this goes with my T-Mobile sim going to the V20. The Sprint G5 is my gaming and browser phone. Pixel is my Verizon. Just couldn't enjoy curved display and laggy Samsung software. V20 is set to be in my Top 3. Kinda having G5 and V20 is redundant but I don't care. Removable battery is a must for me. A peace of mind for the longer run.
Savor , 02 May 2017Sealed battery and glass rear is not what I call long lasting premium to me. sealed but lasts way more than lg g5 without reboot.jokes are still on you lol

Had the g3 and just upgraded to the G5. Such a good phone! Keeping the screen brightness down helped with temperature and also battery life. Very long battery life and it also runs very smooth.
Huge fan of this phone.
I personally think that the G5 is a great phone and in the 5 months I've had it I have had zero problems with it and I always use quick charging to top up the battery and I like having the peace of mind that quick charging I know will kill the battery in the long run but I can simply replace it so who cares whereas with my HTC 10 which I have had nearly a year now I have never used quick charging once with it cause I don't want to kill the battery on it.
There's so much to be said for replacing the battery at a much later time like I could do with my G4 or V10.
just Got Mine! Im happy with it. Coming from a G3. I love how simple the UI looks like. I'm not saying that these model is supreme to s7 edge or what but I definitely the G5 has its pros and cons. also the s7 edge has its pros and cons. its all about the preference of the user. I'm using this mobile as 1 of my daily driver (I also own iphone 6s plus) and I love both. although the battery life of lg g5 is poor compared to the iphone 6s plus, that's why you have a battery back up charged in your bag.
PARAG B, 01 May 2017for me lg g5 is just a tool and s7e is a long lasting tool along with premium ownership..Sealed battery and glass rear is not what I call long lasting premium to me.
PARAG B, 01 May 2017for me lg g5 is just a tool and s7e is a long lasting tool along with premium ownership..S7 edge is a useless tool. Glad to be selling mine this week. Terrible, laggy software. Lame curved display. Just be duped by Samsung's awful software experience because it happens to be pretty. As if glass rears prone to cracks, scratches, and fingerprints like glossy plastic is supposed to be "premium"? LOL
My G5 does have image retention. I noticed it last night since my wallpaper is gray and noticed more near the notification shade. But it actually went away. Doesn't really bother me at all. I remember having dead pixels and stuck ones on my Sony PSP phat model. Didn't care. Guess I am not as OCD like some of you.
As long as my G5 works well and is smooth, I really don't mind the image retention. And yes, I did use a few blue light filter apps. Stuff like that just doesn't bother me. But a laggy software experience with a curved display that freezes or stutters, that really does bothers me. S7 edge is a gimmicky phone for fashionistas. I can never enjoy using it as much as my G5 and Pixel.
Going to sell my S7 edge for $380 and Note 3 for $120. Use $200 to gamble on the Kentucky Derby. If I have some extra money, maybe within a couple of weeks I will get a Sony Xperia XZ. Sony over Samsung any day. Never again with curved display and laggy software. Planning to keep my G5 for life thanks to removable battery. It's design actually draws people's attention since almost anyone owns an iPhone or edge phone.
