After replacing the device 3 times because all 3 times it had issues out of the box, after a year and a half of usage, the battery is giving up and so does the connectivity on this phone where it loses connectivity and requires a reboot. At the same time it likes to overheat to the point which is not comfortable to hold in your hands. So to my 4th LG G5 i'm soon going to say goodbye and go to a whole different brand. I mean 4 broken devices is unacceptable.
This phone has major issues with its power and its connectivity - both fundamental features. The phone repeatedly shuts itself down before the power is anywhere near depleted. It also abruptly drops wifi and mobile networks at the time, requiring phone restart. These issues typically arise just after the expiry of the one year warranty issue. LG's solution: Pay them $150 to look at the phone. So disabuse yourself of any thought that LG Canada offers good customer care and do yourself a favour and DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE. There is also no reason to think that these issues don't remain in later G models also.
Decent phone for the price. Nice that it has removable battery and IR blaster. Mine is from Rogers in Canada. Model LG-H831. Running older Android Nougat 7.0 w/ March 1, 2017 Android security patch level.
Battery doesn't last tremendously long but has quick charging and USB C. Hoping it'll get Android Oreo update soon but no guarantee that'll happen.
Timo, 29 Nov 2017I have had LG5 over 1 year and work really fineHw model?
Nice large display but battery must be charged/changed almost every few hours. Phone gets warm to hot when charging. Hard to use Memory Card to hold apps; only seems to hold photos and music. Older G3 model has larger screen and the back slides off easily.

I've had issue with screen retention for the longest time and the blue light filter was not working anymore and having issue with slow charring as well so I've decided to send it away for warranty in MemoXpress where I purchased it here in the Philippines and they've replaced the screen and the charging port (if that's what you call it). So far been using it for a week now and all seems to be perfect. :) (fingers crossed)
AnonD-719263, 29 Nov 2017Looking to buy this phone used, whats the best version to look for, and what should i look for... moreH850 is the best other version like at&t has not radio,the remote control has less devices and the os has less options
This phone look great in paper but is having a lot of issue and poor quality. My wide angle screen is crack from a normal drop and was with case on. The GPS doesn't work time to time and sometime a big delay make it unreliable on navigation. The camera focus is having issue focus now but if work it does produce good image especially on close up and flash is strong,
