Try to compare it with Sony or Samsung devices. And regarding the screen, well as I already mentioned, just try to compared it with the latest generation of SAMOLEDS, you will understand then...

I have the 860n model in gold.
Also just for anyone wanting to know, listening to music for 6hrs also net surfing for 2 hrs, the "screen on" function active and enabled google maps tracking (high accuracy GPS) the entire day from 04:40 until 21:30 I ended up having 3% battery left.
Not too bad actually.

I know enough people who bought this phone just to return it after a few days and every time the reason was the same - G5's horrible screen.
[deleted post]well, i thank LG for making this algorithm on G5, LG did this to protect the phone but nevertheless, the display is not short of being spectacular...who cares about anands review and who paid them to make such review on the screen.. very unfair review...
rosegold, 29 May 2016Screen too bright will damage your eye. Well said
simmi123, 29 May 2016That's not dim. low light compare with amoled display. I see its low light. but not too low.Of course it's too dim, try placing G5 and S7 on a table and ask 100 people about the brightness, you'll see that most will pick S7.

MioandUs, 26 May 2016I Agree 1000% with you!!!!
LG G5 has: True, better, full color spectrum ips screen instead of... moreBull...
This is from Gsmarena's G5 vs S7 comparison:
Color accuracy is good (average deltaE of 5.3) though not as good as a calibrated display.
Color rendering is at a pro level with average deltaE of 1.7 (max is 2.3) for Basic mode.
Samsung is much better, if you need color accuracy of course.
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
