Whatevsss, 03 Oct 2018My AT&T G5 just got the Oreo update last night but honestly, too little too late. Looking ... moreis you g5 at&t the H820 Model ?
i have g5 at&t and i didn't receive the update yet
so i tried to check the software update to see if i received the oreo update or no
but whenever i click : About phone → Update center - it takes me to App Updates i cant choose to check the software update or the app updates
i just did a factory reset but its the same
My screen shuts down when a call is made, incoming or outgoing, which means I cannot use an online switchboard :(. Can anyone tell me how to turn this annoying feature in an otherwie brilliant phone off?
I had this phone for 6 months before I broke the screen. 2 months later it is dead, probably due to me keeping it in my pocket. Never keep this phone in a pocket, and protect it from moisture religiously. Your warranty is likely to be needed. I wish I had signed up for one.
My AT&T G5 just got the Oreo update last night but honestly, too little too late. Looking at the oneplus 6t or pixel 3 (not the horrendous XL) for my next phone

Worst Phone In My Life
very very very Bad Battery Life
No UPdates From Last 1 and Half Year(1.5) Still no Updates
Battery Drains Too Fast Like a Train

battery drain problem... other all good till now after 1.5 years . but battery problem i have been facing since day 1.
Kingslayer, 22 Sep 2018Yup, I'm officially done with LG. My G5 still drains 1% every two minutes even after a res... morewell device are no perfect but there is something wrong with your batteries case I got a g5 early this year and batter doesn't drain as fast as you mention it takes really long before I get it depleted
Mine recently (within the last week or so) has been upgraded to android oreo (8.0) and works great. It was initially little sluggish when it upgraded and I had to clear some cache/reboot phone etc. it but no issues since. Battery life seems about the same (it was never spectacular because the battery is a bit small at 2800mAh) With heavy use will have to charge once throughout the day, with casual use(not turning it on every 2 minutes) I'll get 2 - 3 days just fine. Luckily if your battery gets old and doesn't hold a charge you can just get a new one for like 20 bucks on amazon. Because of the update to the OS I'll be keeping mine for at least another 6 months to a year because android 8.1 isn't that much of an upgrade and 9.0 just came out a month ago.
My new battery came in last night as I have it shipped at my parent's home. The manufacturing date says March 26, 2016. This was made around the same time as my spare battery. I doubt it fixes the drain. Just wasted $10 buying from eBay.
There is something wrong with it internally. Draws heat only a few minutes after Wi-Fi and the screen is on. Too much of a hassle to find the rogue app. My V20 mirrors the exact apps on mostly the same updates. No issues.
The better solution is to never buy an LG smartphone again. I might keep them around for IR blaster and wide-angle lens but nothing else. Going back to Google Pixels in a year or so.
Yup, I'm officially done with LG.
My G5 still drains 1% every two minutes even after a restore. Not only for YouTube streaming but even just using MX Player Pro to play a video.
I tested four of my rotational phones last night -
LG G5 = 1% drain every 2 minutes
LG V20 = 1% drain every 4-6 minutes
Apple iPhone SE = 1% drain every 8-12 minutes
Essential Phone = 1% drain every 8-12 minutes
I honestly can't use my G5 for anything except music or a TV remote. The weird thing is that the G5 has longer battery life for tethering. It's better as a Wi-Fi hotspot when the screen is usually off.
Now I can't really stand iOS, so another iPhone is a no-go for me unless I truly fall for the new Apple Watch. I guess my route from now on are Pixels but I'll skip this year's because Google needs to change it up next year.
The irony that my phones with SEALED battery lasts longer than removable ones. I ordered another G5 battery that comes in by Monday and I donÂ’t expect it will resolve this 1% drain per 2 minutes problem.
I don't hate LG. I just won't trust them anymore. All three of my LG phones has given me issues -
G3 Beat - Laggy
G5 - Smoothest but worst battery life, ghosting
V20 - Little laggy,, battery is worse, had ghosting before
Quality control just isn't there. Even showed in last year's Pixel 2 XL with all the image retention which was common in LG's 2016 flagships.
I've pretty much given up finding out the reason for the battery drain. It could be the faulty hardware or just having 2-year-old batteries. I removed Greenify. The overheat happens just streaming YouTube.
This is a phone where many people will eventually HATE it. I'm still part of the other side and do LOVE this phone other than that battery drain. G5 does excel in mostly everything else and never had the GPS issues.
My sister thought living with the G5 with image persistance could be okay after a month of usage, but she wrong. Using Night Screen did solved the problem but it caused some lags even launched any low CPU intensive apps like WhatsApp, IG etc. Replacing with new LCD screen might solved the problem but maybe sounds more worthy if I buy my sister a new phone. LG should solve this problems because I'm pretty sure this problem happened due to just by software that could be fix by updates. No wonder why their sales on mobile phones getting lower every single year.
