I got Android 7.0 update more than 6 months ago. After which I got 2 more security patches too. I live in Germany. Download LG Bridge application to your PC and update manually. I hope it helps.
Am still waiting for Nougat update in Germany for the unlocked titan model. Has anyone received the update? Thanks
i am trying to find any service outlet in any country to see why taking fotos of orange always come out yellow ? bright orange is bright yellow. I tried many cams..
Anyone might know of an internal gama adjustment or a LG support office. I've tried all on facebook from europe to Asia. USA LG told me that only in USA do they offer support.

Savor , 13 Jul 2017Maybe 5-6 hr SOT just browsing using Opera Mini (which saves battery) with 50-70% brightness. ... moreBuy a new battery and you don't have to worry about SOT anymore because you get from 0 to 100% in less than 1 minute
I have an lg g5 just got it june 13th. Have had a otterbox case on it from the start and just noticed today my glass over camera lens is broke anyone have that problem? I do not recall dropping it and almost always have the clip attached unless charging it at noght
This phone is a great bargain when you consider that it benchmarks very close to the Google Pixel XL.
I really love the camera on it and the wide angle is fantastic in good light. I've had one for over a year and the only problem is that the rear camera lens does get scratched when not protected by a case or film.
The ability to have a spare (charged) battery for it when I'm traveling is great.
Worst phone ever!!!
I had to replace the motherboard twice in less than a year

That is why you can replace the stock battery to a bigger, higher capacity extended battery like ZeroLemon or Mugen extended battery. It is the main reason why V20 is better than G5. G5 does not have removable back so it's not possible to make extended battery for G5, that's why you can't find any.
Moreover, in a post-apocalypse situation if your phone has removable battery and removable back cover, you can mod it to work with 18650 batteries. 18650 batteries are standard, more widely available, so there is a good chance that you will find them in the local shops.

Anonymous, 16 Jul 2017dual camera setup on the back is pretty sexy too. it looks pretty stylish on my silver g5Yup, mine is silver too and it can draw stares and be mistaken for the Nexus 6P.
I prefer the back of the G5 more than the V20 although that V20 can draw attention. I believe V20 is basically the G5 XL or Plus. They have enough differences but are so similar too. I used to hate the Pixel's ugly rear but the design kinda grew on me.
I just another ugly burn-in again with a darker wallpaper earlier today. Really annoyed me. Wasn't totally black. But now I just went for a plain black wallpaper and doubt it will return. The burn-in does go away naturally but it really gets annoying anytime you go back to the home screen and see burn-in from previous pages.
That's the only thing truly annoying with the G5. Other than that, it is every bit as good as the Pixel and V20. Just sport a true, plain black wallpaper if you see any burn-in/ghosting on yours from time to time. Do it the original iPhone way.
Cured my two main gripes with the G5 -
Ability to change camera resolution for still photos is solved with Open Camera app.
Ghosting / burn-in is changed to dark wallpaper for both home and lockscreens.
The latter can be downright annoying at anything with a grayish background. You can even see it on Nova Launcher settings in night mode. Just avoid gray to dark gray backgrounds. I changed my Textra theme colors to black background with red and blue.
I do prefer the G5 as my main media player because the speaker is louder than the V20, Pixel, S7 edge, and SE.
