AnonD-688539, 31 Jul 2017Hello , I bought LG G5 H860 , almost 7 months ago from USA but using it in india. I am faci... moreTake it to the service center. I got mine PCB replaced for free as it is under warranty. As you mentioned your set is from US, it might be an issue. But, bootloop is a big deal, you can check it by mailing to serviceindia at lge dot com and reproduce your US bill. Else pay the PCB damages, I'm not sure the cost of the same.
OK,to some it up,is it still worth it to buy LG G5 this midway of 2017?
Anonymous, 15 Aug 2017I don't think there will be a huge jump between O and P. The biggest improvement was between G... moreMore like Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich unless people had Honeycomb on their tablet. Android M to N wasn't huge, so I don't expect N to O or O to P to be much of a difference.
I actually had fast battery drain on my G5 when I updated to N last week. It was fine for a few days and then I downloaded MoboPlayer to get the mini-player back and for some reason my battery drained 1% every minute or two. So I deleted it as well as Dasher, LG backup, restore to new, restore from backup, and everything is back to normal. Took less than 1 hr to get everything back to once it was with just tweaking with the Settings app. The battery calibration is probably out of sync once we update to every major firmware.
I am pretty content with Android 7. Nougat is the best update since KitKat. I use the Pixel as a guinea pig if the software update is good enough. Then my other phones just follow once the software update becomes available. I love my G5 though. It has the smoothness of my Pixel with the all-around features of my V20 but slightly smaller and nicer to hold. Pixel, G5, and iPhone SE are my three smoothest phones to use. V20 and S7 edge will stutter occasionally.
G5 still my favorite phone ever which is weird because it also has given me issues with the ghosting and recent battery drain. My Pixel went through it briefly until I charged it with the charger it came with. If the G5 battery keeps draining fast, then I will just swap it with the fresh one stored in my drawer. That's my last resort. The beauty of having a removable battery.
G5 = underrated phone
May leave it on Nougat forever which is the best Android firmware I have ever used. Better than Marshmallow. I never liked LG's notification shade and Nougat replaced it with closer to the Google stock one. Also love split-view window and double tap recent to go back to previous app. Just always remember to backup, reset, and restore. G5 + Android 7 = AWESOME!

Sorry to hear that but its up to your carrier and their repair/replacement policies. Depending on screen repair price/hassel sounds like maybe waiting foe your renewal to get a new phone may be best option? I've only ever cracked screen of one phone I owned and I sold it instead of having screen replaced. Bought a cheap used phone till renewal.

The only thing are performance and doze. Since lollipop we have tremendous ui but software itself isnt perfect

It started from MM. Seeing that O isn't such vast improvement from N, the transition should be less problematic compared from K to L.
I am already pleased with Nougat and really enjoy the split-view and overall smoothness, so I really wouldn't care if G5 never gets O except to rid of the yellow emoji blobs. I suspect Android P will be a bigger update than going from N to O. That's what my Pixel is for.
i want to buy a lg g5.i want to lg g5 is good phone?it has any issue???

Jackson, 09 Aug 2017What model do you haveI got the dual sim version LG H860
i purchased this phone a little over 3 months ago, since that time i dropped it once, on the ground and the screen cracked, to me this was not what was promised regarding the glass, before the glass broke i would always get messages that said i had too many contacts delete some, and if i did not delete my contacts which i did not want to , it would take them away itself, i hate this because i can not take time to remember numbers they change all the time. Verizon says the phone cost 600.00 dollars and i have only paid in around 280.00 so far. to me at the price they asked for this phone it is certainly no worth it. the broken class should have been able to repair itself for that price. Now they want me to send it back to the company while i either do without a phone or get another Verizon phone until it is repaired due to the fact that i did not buy the insurance plan. I think i have been scammed by Verizon themselves in order to keep making money off of me. please send me your feed back, this should be a class action suit against either Verizon or the company that makes it. sincerely, Dissatified.
