Green., 10 Jul 2017Kindly tale whats lg g5 screen on time?well like I said on my post I didn't watch any movies for that period of time. but my estimated on screen time is around 23hours mainly facebook and instagram. average youtube and twitter. I always turn off wifi and mobile data if im not using it and I always disable background refresh and GPS. also I clear recent apps every once in a while. brightness is around 30-45% . Don't get me wrong this is just my personal experience and im in no way claiming that all battery life is same for all G5 units out there but hey you can always get the G5 battery kit. saved me many times when Im binge watching on the go.
HUH, 06 Jul 2017Got me one. My 7 year old Nokia N8 still takes better photos at daytime. What is going on ? Su... morelatter Nokia devices were always better in the ways that samsung and lg were forsaking for better on paper specs. My old $500 galaxy S4 after less than a year of use without case looked just awfull and its back cover got a few cracks, yet my mom's lumia 735 after 3 years still looks very good even though she used it without case as well, and it takes rather very good pictures with its 6.1 Mpixels camera. At least bright light photographs are quite on par with the lg g5's but get a bit blurry sometimes.

Hope this helps.
I still have an lg g2 and I am planning to buy a new phone .. So I wanna ask if the lg g5 can last for few years ? and to know if the sony xperia x or Huawei p9 are better .. I want the battery life to last me a day ,also I want a great camera and good audio as I am not a gamer and spend of most of my time on social media
Anyone else struggling with awful 12-15 hour lastingbattery life?? I have to charge it twice a day. I can't even pass 3 hours of sot in 12 hours. Thanks
Got me one. My 7 year old Nokia N8 still takes better photos at daytime. What is going on ? Sure the G5 OIS and f1.8 makes nice night shots, but why are todays 700 euros phones inferior to an N8 , not to speak of the Nokia 808.
IS IT SO HARD TO BUILD A SLIGHTLY BIGGER SENSOR IN AND SOME DECENT GLASS???
If you use additional pieces it will disintegrate... Overheating, just cheap heatsink that doesn't do it's job.
Have had the g5 just over a year, the GPS doesn't work, screen burn in occurs after just minutes of looking at one thing, service is terrible while friends phones are fine, will go from 40% battery to dead and just turn off randomly, the camera doesn't work like it did when it was new, sensors have gone bad I guess. It is only just out of warranty, it replaced an LG G4 that died and went into boot loop. Will never buy another LG device.

The LTE signal on my device never drops. maybe you are doing something to your mobile settings or your area is some kind of a grey area where the signal drops.
I had 4G signal problems with my first LG G5 after 3 months. I sent it to service and they changed the antenna. After 2 weeks I had the same issue and they changed my phone.
The second phone has the same problem after 4 months. I sent it to service and they changed the antenna, after 2 weeks I sent it back with the same problem. Now they say that the phone has no problem.
I will never buy a LG product.
screen lag, no service after battery swap, battery degrading by day, dies at 15%
- Butter smooth performance.
- Love the wide-angle camera, especially if you're taking a lot of Scenery photos.
- One of the few last flagship phones that you can remove / replace your battery.
Cons ( ... and these are big ones):
- Due to the LG G5 using an LCD screen, it's prone to screen burn in. I can still see the google keyboard icon on darker backgrounds, even though I removed that months ago.
- The GPS sucks. It takes at least 5 - 10 minutes to get a GPS signal, and at that point it's erratic and unreliable. This is a VERY big con.
- Terrible after sales support. I've tried to contact LG, but keep getting referred back to my Network Provider.
I'm very sorry to say that I will not be buying another LG Phone. I tried to move away from Samsung due to their terrible re-skinned UI and immense bloatware, but at least the hardware was fantastic.
Anonymous, 26 Jun 2017The reason is that LG phones have crap camera app. It does not have any option to change the p... moreI don't believe that theory because my V20 camera app provides all the settings I want including the ability to set to a lower MP or video size on both sides of the camera. Only my G5 doesn't give me the options similar to what iPhones do. Apple wants you to buy the bigger storage options, so each photo are as large as songs.
At least the G5 has expandable storage where I can easily move my photos to. I can get a $90 PNY 200gb at Fry's. My 64gb Samsung microSD inside my V20 corrupted earlier this morning. My 64gb Transcend inside my G5 is still going strong?
I think when I travel, I would bring the G5, V20, and Pixel along with the PS Vita. The V20 will likely be my main camera phone though. I have two holster cases attached to my hip with the G5 and Pixel. The V20 is just too bulky to attach to my belt that I leave in my pocket with another holster case to protect it.
The G5 is nicer to hold when texting though. Ideal size. And I prefer the speaker on it over the V20 which is why I use it as for my videos and songs. V20 speaker is quite weak and barely on the level of the Pixel. The S7 edge has a louder speaker but I hate using that phone.
Savor , 22 Jun 2017Still my favorite phone but I can't adjust the MP resolution lower. Each photo eats up 7.5mb. ... moreThe reason is that LG phones have crap camera app. It does not have any option to change the photo and video resolution. It's pathetic that they (LG) brag about manual settigs, yet they don't offer even the most basic feature: changing photo resolution.
You should try 3rd party camera apps, for example OpenCamera. It has more options than the stock camera app (you can change resolution, video bitrate, use always infinity focus in video, etc.).
