I was "upgraded" to this phone when my V10 broke. Asurion assured me it was comparable. I used mine mainly for the camera and internet browsing and texting.
I like the slim design,nice looking, comfortable to hold, nice sized screen and good battery life.
However, the camera doesn't come close to the v10, memory is absolutely a joke and every time it updates I need to delete or disable another app to make room for it; I can't even update emails until I "make room". Too many apps they automatically added that I dont use, yet I can't delete them... So I'm constantly trying to reprioritize the ones I want, because they're the only ones I can delete (that's why I left iphone! I wanted to make my own choices, not be forced to use what the manufacturer thinks I should user). Finally, I have had to resort to using my iphone for calls because this phone constantly thinks it's roaming and out of country in my own backyard. Verizon can't figure it out and attributes it to the phone, which I am assuming must be the case because my work iphone is, and my previous V10 was on the same Verizon network.
Maybe its because Asurion gave me a poorly refurbed phone... All I do know is I hate it.
HY this model it,s fantastic , better than lg g6 samsung s7 s7 edge and iphone 7 and 7 +
dpk8666, 16 Apr 2017Do not update,my recommendation. I downgraded to marshmallow by visiting LG service center. No... moreHow is SOT between MM v N? I decided to stay on MM 6.0.1 with my G5 although I easily could have updated to 7. But I read Nougat eats up a little more RAM and slightly more battery life.
My G5 has the worst standby time vs my S7e and Pixel both on Nougat but it isn't that bad at 2% overnight and SOT is decent. I wanted the new and improved Doze but decided against it.
I like the notification system and settings menu better on the G5. I didn't want Nougat to change it as well as I didn't want to lose the Flappy Android Easter egg.
Nougat is fine on both my S7e and Pixel but I wouldn't say I noticed a huge difference between it vs G5 on Marshmallow. G5 on MM is pretty smooth already. Curious if G5 on N improves battery life though.

V, 13 Apr 2017Its a flagship model and still they have not released android 7 update in india .disappointed I had received the update last month and was very thrilled by the performance.You can update via lg bridge software.You will surely enjoy using Android N on you LG G5.
Very happy. The only issue. It sometimes heats a lots even when no app is running or is on charging.
My query is when H860N - India will get Android N update ?
bblover, 14 Apr 2017I want to buy new phone but can't decide between g5 and HTC 10I had the HTC 10 for a week why I chose to return and keep G5:
All cameras seemed better and wide angle is awesome, rear finger print coupled with knock knock code, IR blaster, charges to 100 way faster, 5hrs screen on time, and number one reason:
And I actually don't have any modules but in all honesty what an amazing concept to have a removeable chin. I spilled beer on my LG and had to replace my power button.
But then... Just recently I guess the liquid damage finally reared its ugly head again and my charging port and speaker were working on and off. Unreliable and frustrating. But then... It was a $20 solution. I bought a new chin on online and no more problems. Even the clips to the battery were solid again.
So yeah I'm still loving my G5... But then again... I also still hate seeing the lightbleed on farmers screen images. Meh. Ill still keep her as a backup when I upgrade though ;D

Alright good luck!
bblover, 14 Apr 2017I want to buy new phone but can't decide between g5 and HTC 10I have both and my G5 beats the HTC 10 hands down for battery life and also the always on display is extremely useful and it just does everything really well but the HTC 10 has slightly better sound and build quality and customisation but its battery life is rubbish.
Personally I'd say get the G5
Sasi, 14 Apr 2017anyone received Nougat update in India for LG G5? looks like so much of delay...Lg doesn't care to reply even when u ask about this on their offcial twitter handle. I don't see any hopes of update coming in near future.

The only reason there customer care have is that nougat is not stable. How come other OEMs are releasing it?
The fact is LG wants to promote its new launches which have Nougat pre installed. Hence they don't care to update the existing ones. Pathetic customer service . Don't buy LG
