LG G5 has the dimmest display on the market, any other flagship is brighter. LG, wake up and fix your software.
Kambing lapar, 23 May 2016Trolling...Not at all. Go to any store and try to compare these phones, you'll see that LG G5 is very dim. They are limiting the brightness in software and it looks like crap.
I'm not a fanboy of any brand and if anything I wanted to see G5 at the top this year, it ain't gonna happen with these highly limited IPS lcd screens. Galaxy s7 at half brightness looks much better than 100% brightness on G5 and consuming less energy, way less. How is that reasonable to LG execs?
mariaayash, 21 May 2016LG G5 or Samsung s7 is better? I'm planning to buy a new smart phone but I can't decided whi... moreThere are so many good phones available right now that it's very difficult to choose! I just played with the LGG5 at Best Buy and was impressed by the UI. I also played with the S7 & S7 edge and those seem great as well. Sony, Huawei and HTC all have some cool devices, though you'll have to verify that the unlocked versions work on your carrier's LTE band. I'm also looking to buy a new phone but will wait until October. Gotta see that Note 6!!
Great phone. Bought it last week from Best Buy. Unlocked. Upgrade from G2. Battery good enough for one day usage.
Anonymous, 22 May 2016HTC 10What ht 10? Come on ht phones is stagnant while LG is innovating every year and still a trailblazer...
Best phone I've ever used I'm a big fan of LG smartphones. Upgrade from G3
You cannot judge thr book by its cover, if we talk about phones its G5 that has a handsome functionality and practical specifications...
why the fuuuuuuuckkkkkkk is 2800mAh!!!!! can you explean it to me? i'm using G2 with 3000mAh why should I buy G5 with 2800mAh Oo
Bought LG G5 and returned it after few hours. The display is super dim, nowhere close to the claimed 800 or 900 nits. I guess it's about 300/350 nits max at full manual brightness. Automatic won't give you more indoors so the phone is useless. Got Galaxy S7 instead and the screen is amazing.
Too bad of course, because except the display G5 looks great and there is a replaceable battery which was one of the main factors to buy it in the first place.
LG - stop using these crap IPS displays and move to AMOLED or try to use something similar to Sony's IPS, I've got Xperia Z5 Premium and it's IPS is much brighter than the crap in LG G5 (Max brightness on manual again).
Before you start screaming that the light burn your eyes - remember that we are all different and each got his own needs, I need an bright screen - yes, even indoors.

I'm planning to buy a new smart phone but I can't decided which one I should buy

Battery below 3000 mAh for a premium phone in TWO-THOUSAND-SIXTEEN?? Are u kidding us LG?
been using the LG G5 for 2 weeks now.
I'll start from the design- like the aluminum finish, but it's not that premium (regarding the price), the part where the module goes is a bit wobbly and makes a click sound cuz it's not quite firmly secured and as you put it on up towards some light you can see the light through the phone (where the module goes)
the one thing i dislike ALOT is that they moved the volume buttons on the side exp. it's a bit harder to take pictures single handed (yea i know that i can use the volume button but i have a feeling that my phone would slip every time and i got huge hands so size is not a problem), and the power button is a bit wobbly and click-y.
battery life- well it sucks, when i unplug my phone in 7am, im using bluetooth (maybe 2h a day), data, wifi, sync on, moderate use, screen time 2.5h with auto on at the end of the day it's barely alive. while on my old lgg3 that was running on kik kat 4.4.1 i had like 40% left (marshmallow killed my g3 didn't even made by 4pm)
camera- just love it, ofc can always be better, just missing the smart focus feature
speed,lag etc. - well haven't notice any
I upgraded from my g3 to g5- not sorry, but hope that they're gonna make an update to save battery and a feature to kill all bloat (lg health exp).
