this in one of the best phone i have ever used after 6s plus. i have used samsung flagships like note3,note4,note5 and s7 edge for few days only. the reason i returned s7 edge in overheating other note devices did good for me about 7 months because i never use same phone more than a year. lg g5 in the first phone i'm using longer. i bought it on the same day available in qatar and got extra battery and charging case along with camera module; the camera is far better than s7 edge if you know how to use manual mode otherwise you cant have best image with auto mode. battery is better than note 3 and note 4 and note 5 but s7 edge and 6s plus have better battery life than it but it never matters as i have two batteries i charge one while using other and does for a full day. i swap it in the morning with the charged one and never plug my phone itself till now. its faster than samsung devices but 6s plus is faster than it. image retention in very unnoticeable but app called blue light filter fixes it 100%. sd card slot removable battery ir blaster are awesome features. put a good case to avoid uglier back design anyway you rarely look on back of phone. speaker in far better than s7 edge notes and 6splus. charging also faster than any other devices i have used. dont hesitate to go for it. never lagged in past 8 months and sometimes messenger stopped and just uninstalled and installed it and fixed. best phone after 6s plus for me loved it.

I also love LG very much because they always able to differentiate their phones from the rest, year after year.
Anonymous, 20 Feb 2017I could not agree more...
Thanks! The silver one of the G5 is gorgeous. I use grayish wallpapers with an Android logo for the lockscreen. I simply never understood the hate for this phone. It has a great camera, screen, feels comfortable to hold in the hand removable battery, inexpensive, excellent external speaker, charges fast, and doesn't overheat. No bootloops so far.
Ugly design? I don't pay attention to the rear as most of us don't look at that side and we can cover it with a case anyway. The iPhones of the last three gens in any color has an ugly rear too. At least the G5 doesn't attract smudges like the overrated S7 edge. And both the G5's build quality and battery life have been rock solid so far.
I noticed most people who actually OWN this device is very happy with it or simply love it. The haters who bash it just want to troll. With my spare battery tucked away, I know I can use this for at least 3-4 years while my future iPhone X battery should be dying by that point. This phone will be appreciated as time goes by users who actually own it for years...
LG G5 is like webOS. Underrated, underappreciated. Best smartphone of 2016. It describes Android the best. Quirky, fun, customizable, but open to the many possibilities. Such a shame this phone never got its due. Even if I buy an iPhone X later this year, I would still love my G5 more. I love Android and anything with removable battery and microSD slot. I love the G5, I paid it off completely just an hour ago. All $240 ($10x24) for Sprint which sets me up to be eligible for another phone later this year. Best bargain from 2016. Better value than OnePlus 3 and ZTE Axon 7. Love live the G5, baby!
Best phone so far for me, dont know why it has been underrated.
Camera, performance, Battery replacing option, and sleek, with perfect size to handle.
Just got this G5 for an incredible bargain brand new with extras thrown in there which makes me feel I only paid $100 for this phone. This phone is so underrated like the Galaxy S5 was. I find no real fault to one of the last flagships to offer a removable battery next to the V20 and the only LG flagship to offer a modular design. I think this phone simply couldn't be accepted by the ignorant masses for being far too ahead of its time while everyone only cares about a pretty design like the S7 edge has. This phone will be appreciated as years goes by like many old Nokia N-series (N91, N82). I feel like Tom Cruise in Tropic Thunder! I want me some G5! Love LG. Only Motorola, Nokia, and LG matter to me with phones. I avoid Apple and Samsung like the plague. Life's good, baby. Fly like my G5!
king, 15 Feb 2017please, which model are you using? T-mobile or At&T or Internation model?International
Today i visited LG direct service center for Screen Retention issue and they verified the issue and informed me that Display panel will be replaced , but it may take 7-10 days as parts not available currently , parts will be ordered today .
i will update you guys after the display is replaced , that the problem till exists or not.
Sourav, 16 Feb 2017What about the camera segment....? Which is better? Terms of picture quality Awesome. If you use cam plus module, it's like a charm.
Iv bought LG G5 4 months ago.THE PHONE IS BRILIANT FOR ME!!!!
Power machine in my hands.The camera is spectacular,phone is fluid,no lagss,no nothing....and yeas,always on display is phenomenal.
Sourav, 11 Feb 2017Please tell me which is the best Lg G5 or S6 edge??????????I have a g5 and the hardware quality is very horrible I couldn't believe how shoddy the thing is its got a couple things about it that I like such as the biometric device which is better than Samsung's but I think that's cause its round in shape it takes incredible photos too....however its flimsy the screen breaks very easily battery sucks and its painfully overpriced I feel like they got one over on everyone that purchased one AT&T charges 688 dollars for this phone yeah SIX HUNDRED EIGHTY EIGHT DOLLARS! I've used ZTE and Alcatel devices that are more sturdy than the g5 its like its designed to break and I'm not joking about that either if your considering buying an lg g5 just get an s7 oh an iphone I couldn't believe that the S7 is less than 100 dollars more than the g5 and the s7 is significantly more powerful the 2 don't even compare hell the s6 is probably faster too in summary I'm very upset that I wasted money on it
