I swear, I think I wasn't meant to own the G5. A couple days ago, it accidentally fell waist high. It was still inside the holster case. Just recently, I noticed a slight dent on the top of the phone. It is annoying to look at. In comparison, my V20 was dragged to the tile because I forgot to detach it from the laptop. It falls facedown. No holster case. No damage whatsoever. Not even a scratch. I was surprised thinking the damage might show a day later or so.
I'm planning to sell the G5 now. It feels like it was made out of tin can. First the ghosting. Then battery drain after update which was remedied by restore to new. Now its fragility. Both it and the S7 edge will be put on sale. I plan to use only the Pixel (Verizon), V20 (media), and iPhone SE (GPS). I have some bad luck with the G5. My V20 on the other hand isn't perfect by any means. But reliable and better in most important aspects, it is.
Pixel. V20. SE.

btw it's the best app of LCD's ghost screen :D
After 9 months my g5 started suffer from image retention. Its is here on the top of taskbar, should i replace my LCD ?? I probably wont sell it soon, is it worth to pay extra for lcd and repair job??
I'm having this phone almost a year and I'm pretty satisfied with the camera, it's fast, fast charging, the size, and I said that he will get Android Oreo update. Im not satisfeid with the GPS is not working at all, battery is not good and also when I play a game and when I close it they are still some details from the game on the next screens open and that pissed me off. anyway it has Android 7 the touch is good sounds good. I'm happy to have it but soon I will upgrade to some other brand as HTC or Samsung
Mr Grey, 21 Aug 2017I have had a G5 since December and mine has been working perfectly and as for the bootloop thi... moreanyone have problems with photos colors as displayed; My bright orange is yellow; bright red is purpose. blues are off.
how to fix this as sending the files to anyone they get the correct colors; its the display itself and not the camera.
Where is settings. OF coarse no suppoort worldwide unless you are in USA. I'm told by USA that My model no is out of USA so no support at all, India, Korea , ME, phillipines offer no support.
For travelers; forget it !

Go for it there's nothing wrong with this phone.
Hey friends i need a suggestion from the users of lg g5. I want to buy new smart phone and i'm looking for lg g5 but im scared of of bootloop issue in lg g4. I want to buy a used phone so i.will not have any coverage or warranty. Can you please tell is this problem is coming in lg g5 too ? Or any other problem to look on?
I have to say that this is by far the worst smartphone I had. Before it, I had xperia Z2 and have never experienced the problems I have with this LG. From loosing GPS signal almost always when I'm aproaching my destination, non functional fingerprint unlock, poor baterry life, now it started restarting whenever battery comes under 15%. I have it for year and a half and cant wait to switch back to sony or anything else for that matter.
Worst phone,Please never buy.This phone has major problem in signal reception ,drop signal again and again.Battery timing is not good.

24, 17 Aug 2017OK,to some it up,is it still worth it to buy LG G5 this midway of 2017? Absolutely this phone is still relevant now in 2017 and worth buying and I have a G5 myself but my current daily driver is the high end htc u11.
Even compared to my U11 the G5 is in some respects better because it has removable battery and always on display and infrared remote control and fm radio and if I dropped it I know my G5 would survive the fall whereas my U11 would probably shatter.
In some respects I would rather be using my G5 but it's now my back up phone.

UI on Nougat reminds me of Lollipop, its the last android version i liked the most because of white theme and new status bar. Its cool LG decided to let almost stock ui on g5 instead of MM. I totally agree, status bar on MM is pretty crappy and weird. Performance is super smooth I use Chrome, yahoo mail,FB client, tinder and many widgets at the same time it still dope no single lag (y)
24, 17 Aug 2017OK,to some it up,is it still worth it to buy LG G5 this midway of 2017? Yes, very much. I would say for next 1.5 years :) It is a good phone with camera+IR+good battery(get spare battery mod too)+dual sim etc.

It's a particular app that is badly designed that takes the phone battery down.
