I bought secondhand G5 today for 169$. It's the Verizon VS987. It's on it way to me and i'm afraid that it requires unlock code every time i do a hard reset. The phone is unlocked version though.
Steven, 17 Nov 2017Any one know how to fix LG G5 screen burn in/ shadow issues?
I used an app called Blue Light Filter. I had it at 5% which tinted the screen a tiny bit red. Not noticeable. If iwanted to view movies or photos I would disable.
But now after 14months with the phone I have to use at 9% Its too red. I can't stand it. So I honestly think always on display is a major reason for this. Unlike Samsung, G5 has to light up whole screen to use always on.
So I bought a S8+ for cheap and although it is gorgeous I really really really miss the ability to change out the battery. 0 to 100% in less than a minute.
I love my G5 so im going to keep G5 as backup and try other apps to deal with the screen retention issue. Good luck.
ahmed banna, 21 Nov 2017Which version you are ?.....this had been solved by softwareWhat version do you mean? Software or the phone model? Software I run the lastest Oct 2017 patch. Handset model H-850 (Europe version).
Regarding the screen burn issue, I too had it and software did the trick for most of the part (so I said 'metigate' & not 'solve'). You should hide navigation buttons for all apps and use the screen filter app. It helps. As my phone was in warranty, I opted for screen replacement later.
Steven, 17 Nov 2017Any one know how to fix LG G5 screen burn in/ shadow issues? Download screen filter app from haxor industry & set the filter to 88%. You can then metigate the screen burn in issue. Also there are apps which remove the burn in by making an array of colors run for sometime. If you want a permanent solution, then ask for screen replacement. But Screen Filter set to 88% should work fine.
Hello LG G5 users,
Few hours back I got an update (Oct patch) of 65 MB in Germany after which all sounds stopped working. Tones, loudspeaker, etc all shut. Anyone having a similar problem? if yes kindly let me know.
ive had a problem with the gps in this phone since i bought it. its been a year of trying to fix it, and my 1 year manufacture warranty is almost up. the problem still isnt fixed.
avoid this phone unless you hate yourself!
Trickle Tricks, 14 Nov 2017I want to buy LG G5. tell me about its speed n sensor. it will give the same performance in 20... moreI wouldn´t recommend it. It has problems with the GPS, some times overheats without a reason, some versions can´t be rooted.
Elegant, 15 Nov 2017There is a way to fix that I have done it, I still use my G5 and have had it for over a year n... moreBut it show alot of stallites .. If there is a bad contact it will appear no satellite...thats rights or wrong?
Trickle Tricks, 14 Nov 2017I want to buy LG G5. tell me about its speed n sensor. it will give the same performance in 20... moreI got mine July of 2016 and its still going however I had to do 2 hardware repairs, one for the charge port (stopped working and couldn't boot phone), one for the power button (stopped registering), and one mod for the GPS. All LG G series phones I have seen have an issue with GPS. I repair phones for a job so stuff like that is nothing to fix. However this phone apart from those issues is extremely fast still and love it. Its why I fixed the issues, I have 3 phones but my G5 is still my go to phone and one of them is the new Samsung A5
ahmed banna, 08 Nov 2017G5 is better on all terms excpt gps it is weakThere is a way to fix that I have done it, I still use my G5 and have had it for over a year now. I had to fix it recently because it broke down but when it was down I didn't realise how good or fast it was until I had to use my iPhone 6 lol however it does have issues still that have been there since day one, like GPS (fixed), Screen Burn-in issues, over heating, and power button wouldn't register (fixed). I'm a cell phone tech so its easy to fix issues like these. The GPS is a simple fix, it involves you taking your phone apart though, there is a video on YouTube on how to do it. Its just 3 pins on the motherboard that need to be lifted to connect with the flex connectors that are attached to the frame. Look up a video to do it, use that video at your own risk though and it does void warranty.
after more than 7 month of use this device began lose its power button, not recommend if u swap the battery very often because of that i need to press power button really hard to turn it on
I want to buy LG G5. tell me about its speed n sensor. it will give the same performance in 2018 ?
or kindly tell me anyother mobile phone in range of 20000Rs/- pkr
