Beebob88, 29 May 2016Not dim at all if you choose manual set it the eay you like. Every unit will be like that, dim and dark. Even on manual and set to maximum brightness it will still look dim especially if you will compare it to any Super Amoled mobiles.
It is not a defect as far as I know, it is just a way to preserve energy, LG decided to limit the maximum brightness of this panel.
Problem is - they won't let you control it, at manual and maximum brightness the display is too dim but we all know it can be brighter because it is much brighter when set to automatic and with direct sun light. LG - let us set the brightness to real possible maximum!
I can honestly say this phone is there best. But got to watch out for the fakes
Battery is as good as any other phone on the market so no real disappointment there. I know build quality isn't consistent but they can only get better in the long run and lg will learn from this im sure. The screen brightness is great dont know why people are complaining, i like the coating over the metal dose"nt have to be cold to be quality anyway 9/10 LG
Can someone tell me if the dim screen is defect in some units or is it in every unit will be thankful
This is the phone that the more you see and use everyday, the more it became premuim and the more it became wanted...
Faseeha, 15 May 2016The LG G5 vs the Sony Xperia Z5? Opinions please as I am a Sony person and scared to make the ... moreWill easily recommend the the G5 over the Z5, but then I would not really recommend any Sd810 based device (especially a Sony one), in the words of Anandtech: "heat-pipe thermal dissipation system is a quite worrying characteristic of the phone and should in no way be seen as a positive feature"
Sony saw the need to include not one but two heat-pipes in the Z5....now what does that tell you?
I would recommend the G4 over the Z5, so the G5 is an obvious choice.
I have got some more experience with it. Its battery lasts more with always on dispaly off. It lasted 42 hours with 5 hours talk time and normal use. And stanby is better as at night 12am I had 9% battery with wifi on and at morning 9 am it had 5% left. Camera features and settings are awesome as I have never seen as lowest shutter speed like dslr 30s bulb mode on a phone camera. And raw dng capture is good.

I sent the G5 back I bought off Amazon yesterday and at first I thought it was great when it first arrived at 6 in the afternoon but by 11 that night the power button had become loose and the finger print scanner had stopped working completely,LG what the hell have you done why can't you make a durable phone,my G4 is far superior to the G5 build quality wise and I will be sticking with the G4 now and until I maybe get a HTC m10
i bought LG G5 (H860) from singapore, when i checked at antutu officer result is unknown and when i checked at imei.info model result is KH8600.
is it fake phone?
anyone has experienced the same thing?
G5 user, 24 May 2016come on, LG has a special algorithm for the screen performance, it does not compete for the br... moreI Agree 1000% with you!!!!
LG G5 has: True, better, full color spectrum ips screen instead of Samsung S7 which has overexposed, too bright, nothing to do with: true colors...
Besides that, Samsung uses Super amoled technology that have very serious "burn in issues" with the screens... just google it, check it...
LG what the hell have you Done to G5
Dimmest screen ever and smaller Than Previous G series
Also Smaller battery Than LG G2 -_-
I bought V10 and i really wanted to pay 40$ more for G5 and get that SD820 , 135 degree camera
Thank you LG you ruined this phone!

Stop comparing and enjoy the phones features...yes its not perfect but i can tell you this i like it way more than my samsung note 5.
The operating system kills touch wiz and hate how they fill the phone with garbage that u cant even get rid of..note 5 comes with 4 gig ram but in reality you only have about 1 gig for your apps...
