I decided to stay on MM 6.0.1 with my G5 although I easily could have updated to 7. But I read Nougat eats up a little more RAM and slightly more battery life.
My G5 has the worst standby time vs my S7e and Pixel both on Nougat but it isn't that bad at 2% overnight and SOT is decent. I wanted the new and improved Doze but decided against it.
I like the notification system and settings menu better on the G5. I didn't want Nougat to change it as well as I didn't want to lose the Flappy Android Easter egg.
Nougat is fine on both my S7e and Pixel but I wouldn't say I noticed a huge difference between it vs G5 on Marshmallow. G5 on MM is pretty smooth already. Curious if G5 on N improves battery life though.

I downgraded to marshmallow by visiting LG service center. Nougat is very irritating. Battery issue, play store app update issue in roaming mobile data network.

V, 13 Apr 2017Its a flagship model and still they have not released android 7 update in india .disappointed I had received the update last month and was very thrilled by the performance.You can update via lg bridge software.You will surely enjoy using Android N on you LG G5.
Very happy. The only issue. It sometimes heats a lots even when no app is running or is on charging.
My query is when H860N - India will get Android N update ?
AnonD-308035, 14 Apr 2017I want to buy new phone but can't decide between g5 and HTC 10I had the HTC 10 for a week why I chose to return and keep G5:
All cameras seemed better and wide angle is awesome, rear finger print coupled with knock knock code, IR blaster, charges to 100 way faster, 5hrs screen on time, and number one reason:
And I actually don't have any modules but in all honesty what an amazing concept to have a removeable chin. I spilled beer on my LG and had to replace my power button.
But then... Just recently I guess the liquid damage finally reared its ugly head again and my charging port and speaker were working on and off. Unreliable and frustrating. But then... It was a $20 solution. I bought a new chin on online and no more problems. Even the clips to the battery were solid again.
So yeah I'm still loving my G5... But then again... I also still hate seeing the lightbleed on farmers screen images. Meh. Ill still keep her as a backup when I upgrade though ;D

Alright good luck!
AnonD-308035, 14 Apr 2017I want to buy new phone but can't decide between g5 and HTC 10I have both and my G5 beats the HTC 10 hands down for battery life and also the always on display is extremely useful and it just does everything really well but the HTC 10 has slightly better sound and build quality and customisation but its battery life is rubbish.
Personally I'd say get the G5
Sasi, 14 Apr 2017anyone received Nougat update in India for LG G5? looks like so much of delay...Lg doesn't care to reply even when u ask about this on their offcial twitter handle. I don't see any hopes of update coming in near future.

The only reason there customer care have is that nougat is not stable. How come other OEMs are releasing it?
The fact is LG wants to promote its new launches which have Nougat pre installed. Hence they don't care to update the existing ones. Pathetic customer service . Don't buy LG

have tried a lot of blue light filter to remedy the screen burn but only so far has worked! Been using it for 3 months now and been working perfectly. Just search it in Google Play store sFilter. :)

How to find first stock rom v10a-222-10? I got update 425mb when I turn on phone after unpacking first time. Camera update... My phone on vodafone network and free sim. Im from Serbia. Now version of rom v10b-222-10.
I did a camera shootout last night and my LG G5 came out on top over the yellowish tints of my S7e and Pixel! I said it before, G5 is my favorite smartphone of all-time. It may not look much, but its got it where it counts.
G5 is probably the closest to my perfect smartphone. I got the Sprint one which has the FM radio enabled unlike the other carrier branded ones. It has IR blaster and microSD slot up to 2TB. At 5.3", easy and fast to type on in portrait mode. Software is like 98% fluid as my Pixel while Samsung is about 75% before it starts to stutter again after a day or two.
Every time I look at my 3-year old Xiaomi Mi 3 with its severely degraded sealed battery, I smile at my G5 for offering removable and a free spare one I kept inside its package. Even if the screen quite dimmer, I prefer the colder IPS from it than the oversaturated, fake colors of AMOLED.
What I learned is never to get a curved display ever again. I had trouble just typing the letter "L" on this S7e using my right thumb. Never trust these dbrand-sponsored reviewers. The camera on the Samsung is like their displays. Produces fake colors. And never go under 5.3" and get a phone with a sealed battery. G5 was the easiest to repair last year with 8/10 iFixit score.
LG V30 could be my next phone if they offer removable battery, SD835, and smaller footprint than the V20. I am aware many people have had bad luck with LG and the bootloops. Doesn't apply to me. I love LG. Been lucky so far with Lucky Goldstar!
G5 stands alone now as my favorite phone ever breaking its tie with the Pixel after its slightly disappointing camera from last night. Closest to phone perfection from my experience owning many brands of phones. LG G5 fan for life!
