I live in Pakistan and am about to buy an unlocked G5 Sprint model which I will use with a non-Sprint, local SIM, and would like to ask anyone with prior experience:
1) Will an unlocked Sprint model whose 4G LTE bands match my local network's bands offer me 4G?
2) Will it receive OTA Android updates like Nougat update?
3) And should I update to Nougat, since previous posts imply that it isn't good?
Anonymous, 26 Dec 2016Hello. I am planning to buy a new phone. I am confused between LG G5, LG V10 and LgV20. Which ... moreI would go for the V20 but if you have a small phone and you dont want to change the size go for the G5.
Ive had this phone for nearly 7 months it performed amazing on marshmallow but ever since i updated it to nougat it has been a bit lagy i wish i had never updated from marshmallow so quickly
Since the new upgrades my phone sucks they should go back to the way it was
Hey all.. most of the recent comments are promoting s7 & discouraging lg fans.. all recent post were said g5 is worst ugly design low battery capacity same camera(same mega pixels).. for them ill give few examples. Can you get better quality images with sony z1 which is having 21mp.?? So dont concern much about mega pixels. Battery life depends on the performance of phone. So you may concern about endurance ratio.. charging time. also you can use extra battery with g5.. design.. yes lg is changing their design from flagship to flagship...while galxy keeping same design for their every flagship. G5 design may good or bad.. it depends on users pteference. Also i noted that most of bad comments were posted by the users who havent seen g5in their real life. So if you are a s7 fan or a user there is a seperate page for you. Pls dont misguide other people.
Iknayan, 25 Dec 2016I have been using LG G5 for 4 mothes with Marshmallow. It was awesome on power and performance... moreI sympatize with you. I think there is a way to get back to Marshmallow. Google the procedure. I personally wish to get back to my marshmallow since my banking apps no longer works after the update.
Mo, 26 Dec 2016I used Lg G4 before , i wish to purchase Lg G5 . .anyway thank so much for your nice info..
:)I will always keep my G4 because it's one of the best phones I have ever had but the G5 is excellent and you can't go wrong with it at all and for those who are thinking of buying it I'd say get a G5 for sure.
Mines been working perfectly and its far better than my HTC 10 which I have also got.

I own lg g5 ...and I'm in India ...when will I get update for android 7 ?

I have been using LG G5 for 4 mothes with Marshmallow. It was awesome on power and performance, but since I have updated to android 7.0 (november version)it's draining my battery.
I have tried all these solutions:
1. Reset all app preferences
2. Clear app cache
3. Reboot a few times
The battery analysis consistently says it's the Android OS eating away the battery.
I have observed that if I am on good wifi, with decent mobile network, the phone behaves. As soon as I go into a room with even slight poor network coverage, the phone goes hot in my pocket. At work, on a mobile network, unless I am next to a window with 5 bars of 4G, the phone goes hot and battery depletes.
I have never seen such a battery drain or phone getting hot before, no circumstances have changes except the Android 7 update. My phone is with Wind Italy.
If I factory reset through the hard reset option, can I revert to Marshmallow, which I was happy with?
