To me my G5 is a classic and one of the true last great replaceable battery phones.
Still my favorite phone but I can't adjust the MP resolution lower. Each photo eats up 7.5mb. So with only 130+ photos, that eats up 1gb. I don't understand the reasoning? My other phones can be adjusted to a lower res. I tend to use the V20 most and will use it as my main camera phone and multimedia device.
One month with a lifeproof Fre for my G5. Feels very secure now. Tested in shower and bowl of water and no water gets in.
But Problems: call quality poor. Pictures do sometimes get lens flare. Fingerprint sensor 75% accurate. Sometimes has problems with proximity sensor: when finished calls sometimes screen stays black and have to hit power button twice , and always on display sometimes not working when in case.
But got it half price and even though makes phone bulky, worth it for security. Caught in storm twice and got drenched and phone stayed dry both times. Few months ago I had to replace power button because of spilled beer. Spilled drinks on G5 again but with lifeproof case, no problems. Good enough as part time case till v30 rolls out ;D

[deleted post]You could search for internet "how to start phone without powerbutton". Sometimes for example the a combination a volume-button and putting the charger in; it will start the phone (sometimes/maybe) in a special mode: and from there you choose to start the phone from the touch menu.
Also you could soldering a new button by yourself or let one of your friend with "electronic knowlogde" do it. Did some search now. The lg button is very very easy replaceable. Just i thin cable you connect without soldering. Search for "replaceable lg g5 buttons".
I've had the lg g5 for a year now & im starting to hate the thing! A few month's ago, my power button stopped working, cant turn device off & im scared to let battery drain completely, incase the piece of garbage will not turn back on! Pathetic. It's now starting to freeze alot & the GPS for car travel, that alot of people complain about is starting to give me problem's also!!! I'm sick of the sight of Samsung Galaxy's, that's why i purchased this handset as i thought it stood out from the crowd! But i will never buy another lg product ever again. It was my 1st from lg & it will be my last. I now need to pay £200+ to get shot of my current contract & this GARBAGE phone & i will now get myself the new Sony Xperia XZ instead.
I have lg g5 t mobile Android 7.0 wi fi not working and is gray i have format it but yet not working when I try to open wi fi my phone freezing and not working normaly
Pls help me about that
Even though LG didn't make the audio dac add on available in the US, will it work on the USA version should I happen to acquire it?
My lg g5 H820 is restarting always.Specially when the volume is raised to maximum.Please give a opinion about this.
HI, I live in Serbia (Europe) can enyone tell me please what G5 model should I buy so that I can use my local SIM card or I should be good with any of the obove mentioned models ?
Early in 2013 I purchased an LG washing machine, model WT H550. Just noticed a few weeks ago that the external of the machine is rusting to bare metal. I contacted LG by chat and asked if this was normal. Finally received a phone call from someone who told me that water must have escaped from the tub and in spite of me telling her that this was impossible, she advised that LG would accept no responsibility. She told me that I could have the machine serviced, if I wanted, but I'd have to pay for it. Life can be SO GOOD.
Which smartphone should i buy? Nexus 6P & LG G5 or the Samsung S6? I'm kinda stuck on these three.
AnonD-650583, 11 Jun 2017That's terrible. What model and region is your G5?

Mine is LG H860/India.
I love modular design too. And I love LG G5 so much that I don't think any mobile comes close to it. Everything is perfect from battery, camera, infrared but bootloop came into my life again like a villain :)
LG customer service is also appreciable they replaced my broken screen free of cost as they have some policy if it breaks within 6 months they will replace it.
But frankly it is some common issue which is happening and I don't know why LG is failing to address it. I hope it doesn't come in G6.
All the best I wish it doesn't come to anyone just keep your Google Photos sync to on so that your memories don't go away.
BTW, I happened to back up my data with bootloop issue. My phone used to start and hang on home screen for 45 seconds after booting and till next boot repeat happens. So, within this time period I plugged to USB and backed my data. I have to repeat this thing for more than 30 times. But I'm happy that I'm able to recover data :)

I had problems wth my G5 speaker and charge port and replaced G5 chin for sooooo cheap on eBay. Less than $20 CDN and replace by yourself. When i had Note 2, I had probs with charging port and I had a shop replace for $60 CAD. Replaceable chin and battery is awesome IMO.

But that's one reason why I never buy a phone without SD card storage. I back everything up on it. I've been lucky with my LG g4 and G5. I never got bootloop and I don't think I will with my G5. I hope. And don't worry if it does bootloop I'll be sure to let everyone know here.
Good luck with your new phone!
Main speaker of my lg g5 is gone.sometimes it's stopped work properly.as this time 2times happen that after restart the phone its work well.so my that's a bad thing.i sugggest everyone to not buy lg phone.they have some issues that they never can solve
Acharjee, 10 Jun 2017Mr Grey should I buy lg g5 now? Kindly suggest me.i have lg g4 now.I have a lg g4 also as well as my g5 and to be fair goin to the g5 is definitely a upgrade ok from the g4 BUT the screen is not quite as big as what the g4 has so you may miss that if you like your screens big but overall the g5 kills the g4.
For me personally the g4 is one of my all time favorite phones and that's why I keep my g4 I will never sell it.
