That and the removable battery. The battery they have but it costed $100 and could only be found on Amazon. LG Mobile is a terrible company. Will not support ever again. They make decent fridges though.
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2016Can you disable the auto brightness???Yes, you can. The option for auto-brightness can be toggled on and off.
Yes. Just open the brightness slider and disable the auto checkbox.
I have had my phone (lg g5) for like 3 months and the bottom has never connected right and now it does not stay latched. It is now over heating my battery and made my battery crap out and burnt the inside of my charging cord, Along with the bottom piece an charging cord burning me!!! I replaced the cord and battery it was fine for 2 days and now its doing it again!!! I do not recommend the LG G5!!! Do not get this phone!!!!!
This G5 phone in my first handphone for LG. I've been using it since last month. For now I don't see any problems about the phone. Performance is Superb. I do have the camplus, 360cam and the Hi-Fi and it all works just fine. Its just that the GPS sometimes is not that accurate. But all in all performance it is a worth the price. Bought it for $565 with free battery kit. You can buy lg friends at ebay.
What I don't like about the phone: It is not water proof. The modular base is very questionable. Not good for single hand held phone if you put hars case for extra grip, better use both of your hands. GPS is inaccurate for prolonged use.
I have received an software update just now. Now my software version is V10e. Has anybody else received the same update?
vineeth , 25 Aug 2016how is its otg support ? It is fine, thank you.
The FM radio is locked or laser cut in my hardware revision of the LG G5. It's version RS988. Rumor is, the FM radio only works on LS992 (Sprint - CDMA only) and US992 (US Cellular); Vodafone (not sure if they use GSM or CDMA)
This was almost the perfect phone, I even added a Qi inductive receiver and a laser cut wooden case. But sadly, I cannot list to the FM radio while ridding my motorcycle (helps with traffic alerts) and FM is useful for when the networks and power fails. The FM chip barely uses battery, it doesn't have to decode a bit stream.
I bought this phone unlocked from best buy, and expected the FM radio to work, sadly it didn't.

While my Z5 lies in my pocket and never minds any water/sweat over it. I carry it with me in rain/pools and show it off while others run to secure their loser phones. LMAO.
Red Bonanza, 24 Aug 2016After reading so many bad comments about this phone (mostly from people who don't own it...) I... moreSo you would carry a spare battery with you (in your wallet or pocket) all day everyday and would swap it if the battery dies, alright. Then, you will charge the dead battery (*requires a charging cable with or without adapter which you will carry with you as well) which would take an hour or two and then you carry this one with you. Hmm, how convenient.
BrazucaTech17, 16 Aug 2016Love the phone and features. Only 2 complaints are the screen color accuracy, screen brightnes... moredo you think the phone actually runs better without the drawer? Or you mean it feels simpler to navigate?
