As a loyal Samsung owner, tried the LG G5 for one reason only -- the removable battery! The concept and anxiety of finding a place to charge your phone when all you have to do is slip in a spare battery is worth it, full stop! Not sure why the public puts up with Samsung and Apple -- demand a removable battery! Otherwise, the G5 works great, great specs, fast, and it certainly has the best smartphone camera out there via normal or the amazing wide-angle view.
A fan of lg phones....but recently i have come thru series of problems with there phones.....G3, G4 n now G5..........after use of 6-7 months they give way........my G5 hardly after 2 months..needed a mother board change......what the heck u guys doing? we asa consumer trust you guys with your products but seems like in the mad rat race the quality is no more a primary concern...........!!!

V20 needs to standout from every other phone it needs to have the best display led or lcd and also fix other problems of G5 like faulty fingerprint scanner on some units they must increase their quality control so no faulty unit goes to the market and lastly they should only put feature from previous LG flagships and other brands flagship as well which were a success like secondary wide angke camera on back from G5 second screen from V10 iris scanner from note7. They should not experiment with V20 like they did with G5 so no modular design just removable back with removable battery and make the back rubber like on V10 ppl will like this better than metal and modular design. LG you must not fail this time

This issue and the screen-to-body ratio are the only issues that i dislike in my LG G5.

Most of the time your phone's screen will be very dim, actually the dimmest on the market. It is a well known problem.
You have 0 control over the maximum brightness.
LG - try better next year, you blew it.

LG superfan, 29 Jul 2016Have any other battery exploded?yeah , I have same problem ,
Hello, I compared the screen brightness of my LG G5 with my LG G4, very interestingly LG G4 s screen is much more brighter (in dark room at full brightness)?? Is anyone experiencing low brightness issue with LG G5?
Shannu Miah, 02 Aug 2016battery is horrible..I have bo problem with the battery..mine is verry good
Hi, does anyone have problems with battery life. I see ppl with 4-5 hrs of screen on time and iim getting like 3ish. Anyone facing the same problems? I on the latest update.
On G4 camera was extremely slow when using flash (at night, it took 3-4sec to take photo).
How's that on G5? Did they fixed this problem?
Have spent 3 hours trying to get the sim card installed. Doesn't seem to be the Nano card...
Do not trust LG. I sent a LG G4 for authorized repair under warranty 6 months ago.
LG sent me a notification when they received, then my phone has disappeared.
I called many times LG customer support, I always receive different explanations but I've not been able to have my phone repaired/returned yet. Finally I transferred the case to my attorney.
There are almost no flaws about this phone, it is just this phone is under attack for its uniqueness and originality to give way to other brands which adapts LG idea of dual camera and modularity.
Simply the best. Good SoC, good screen, best camera, ir control. Radio built-in, metal body, easy to fix, REMOVABLE BATTERY, perfect size, etc, etc, etc.
Will buy friends soon. Ok it is not waterproof but i rather like to have a phone with good falling test than to be waterproof. I'm dropping on the ground a lot more often than water. Congatulation! LG A big hit.
