Apollo, 15 Feb 2019Where?Out of the target phone recycling bin. If you're in the US and got a nearby target, go through the phone recycling bin. There's tons of good stuff in there most the time (last I went I got the G5 and an Amazon Kindle Keyboard edition)
Pretty decent performance and feel, although the unlock button may need a couple clicks sometimes.
I love all the misc features like headphone jack, IR blaster, FM radio, removable battery and SD card slot, I wish more manufacturers would get on board with more of these.
The wide angle camera is a cool feature, but the main camera is decent at best. Basically it works pretty good for taking photos at a minimum distance of several feet away under ideal lighting conditions. The auto focus doesn't work for anything up close; even trying to take a picture of a page of text is difficult.
Man, 30 Jan 2019Why??
I ask coz wana purchase oneif u don't care about updates then your last version can be 7.0 or 8.0
some devices may have screen ghosting ...
some people say gps issues
mine has 7.0 and has screen ghost but no that bothers me at alli think most people complaint about it .. is the kind of people that use broken screen devices
any way overall good phone
REJAUL, 16 Jan 2019is it has bootloop issues? please tell me, i am worried to buy...Just don't buy!
I've had this phone for about two weeks now and absolutely hate it. Even with various YouTube tutorials the GPS always craps out. Phone sometimes loses signal when switching cell sites. Half the time I call people even if stationary I'm told it's breaking up yet I have 3 bars. Charging port already acting up. DO NOT BUY
Anonymous, 25 Dec 2018My LG G5 model RS988 still on android 7.0 :(You're pretty much in good hands! 8.0 update is not stable at all
So I've. been using this phone for more than a year. I started experiencing this issue that whenever the phone has to restart or even when I turn it off intentionally, it becomes difficult to turn it on again. It will power on with a divided screen( half dark, half ash).
So whenever that happens, I leave it for a week then after that it will power on normally again. So the thing is, as the phone is now powered on, I will not have any issue with the screen until I have to restart it. What will be the clause?
REJAUL, 16 Jan 2019is it has bootloop issues? please tell me, i am worried to buy...No, bootloop issues is something of the past. Like exploding batteries in the Note7.
REJAUL, 16 Jan 2019is it has bootloop issues? please tell me, i am worried to buy...No it has not
+ it is great phone . Except battery (not too good. Not too bad)
Cam is wonderfull
But i recommend to buy lg g6. It is better
LIRKER, 13 Jan 2019Apart from screen retention and no updates, this is pretty good phone though. I did sent my si... morethe phone is not bad ..... it is really good even camera sensor is bigger that g6,g7,v30,v35.
the performance of the 820 is still flagship level .
for lg is not convenient update its devices to oreo because ... no body would buy their new stock .... but at same time they are doing the opposite not winning followers of good updates and support on a phone ....
Apart from screen retention and no updates, this is pretty good phone though. I did sent my sister G5 and replaced the new screen, she started to love it back. Updates is not her business, as long as the phone works great. Good for gaming if not great, PUBG still runs at consistent FPS. Less bloatware and pretty solid camera but still there's a lot of room for improvements that could be made via software updates. Battery is not at it's best, but to keep it for a day is possible.
I just purchased the H820N dual sim version and right away noticed the GPS issue. Loses connection every minute or two but I noticed if I put the phone higher towards the car windshield the GPS is fine. Must be a weak built-in antenna.
screen is bad with burning .. worst no software support lg already took out of security updates v20 and g5 and still no 8.0 update on mine well will be my last lg phone that's for sure
