It's been over 3 years and I'm still luv'n my G5. Just for grins, once a year I spend less than $10 and pop in a brand new OEM battery. It's quite sad that this is the last premium phone that provides a removable battery. The screen is crisp and as high as most new premium phone selling in 2020. The built-in DAC is batter than what I have in any of my laptops. For me the weakest point is recording videos in dark venues. For that use case specifically, the latest iPhone has it beat. But the reality is that I wouldn't sacrifice the SD slot and removable battery for a iPhone. Far, far less bloatware than Samsung which has more uninstallable garbage than any other phone on the market.
It's a great phone....Except that the Canadian version can't be rooted. It's okay if their system is decent but the update consumes a lot of battery power.. I would not buy another phone from LG again if they keep doing that.
The T-mobile variant is easy to root? Well I am glad to hear that. I don't want a complicated process if possible
There so many types of battery for this device (LG G5) 4000mAH, 3200mAH, booster 2800mAH, 2800mAH original
Is it correct that unofficial battery can damage device?
What is the best option for LG G5?
I have another question; I still have android 6.1
Do you advice me to update my device or not? I understand that all above androids (7 and 8) can discharge battery faster...
My device sometimes shuts down unexpectedly, today I have had 65% battery, but it gets shut down without any reason...
Android 6.1 37 apps installed on a device near to 560 MB, SD CARD 64GB settings, general, smart cleaning show me space 29% usage ~7GB usage and ~16.5 GB is free
Main space 48% usage and we card 69%
What is the main reason and what can I do? I have "nod 32" AntiVirus updated on it also
paco2x, 18 Jan 2020It hold up quite good but the battery life is pretty weak. it certainly is .. for 2 year I have been using mine and I have no issues with it... camera is superb .. screen is good .. battery life is just ok could have been better … micro sd and removable battery are killer features . no os updates but you don't really need it not for next years don't bother with that
Jazz, 17 Jan 2020Is LG g5 phone still considered a good phone in year 2020.Yes it is, I have both my old LG G2 and G5. The only thing I don't like is the battery life. Also, get the T-Mobile version which you can root easily.

Memes, 24 Dec 2019Dang, 1916? That's been quite a while.If your battery lasted for 103 and the new one is not lasting enough, i think you need to change the phone because there is to much archive it lol
Compare this to the Motorola Moto Z on paper, and this seems to be the winner with the inclusion of 3.5mm audio jack and a dual wide/ultrawide camera setup. It's just a shame that LG crippled the Magic Slot idea, or else it would be a true modular smartphone champion.
Sunsuma, 12 Jan 2020Does the phone has in built radio?Yes, it has FM radio
Sunsuma, 12 Jan 2020Does the phone has in built radio?Yes, I think LG is the only one which provides true FM radio to their flagship phones.
