Anonymous, 11 Apr 2017After little research i made ..Guys, i guess no european h840 lg5se models exist yet.. they ar... moreEuropean versions do exist.
Mine is EUR and I got it for free for contract renewal in Austria. It's branding free and came with 6.0.1. About a week ago, I got the Nougat update for it OTA.
The Euro versions have different OS and baseband software. Software versions are like v10a-EUR-xx (Marshmallow) or v20a-EUR-XX (Nougat).
Can confirm Nougat update for European version of the G5 SE.
It's v20a-mar-10-2017, Android security patch level from early March. The device is a branding-free G5 SE which I got for free for contract renewal a couple months ago.
Updated fine OTA and haven't run into problems so far, except an issue with widgets not updating using my Action 3 launcher. That problem was solved with the next launcher update (probably was a known issue already).
Battery life is hard to tell. It's not worse, but if it's better then only marginally so. The Nougat features are all there and the dark theme(s) for the System UI are a nice touch.
Manred, 04 May 2017It is gorrila glass buy its a Thin later of glassIs it because of ultra slim design or it thin like on older g5?i guess ultra slim 7.3mm thickness make it worse
Maha Samir, 06 May 2017I have a serious problem with my Phone !! It's about a month old.. This morning the battery w... moreTry using an different charger and if that doesnt work try buying a new battery
I have a serious problem with my Phone !!
It's about a month old.. This morning the battery was as low as 2% and then the mobile powered off due to the battery...
I connected it to the charger and it doesn't respond to charging !! I thought the battery is too low and i left it for half an hour and nothing .. I tried troubleshooting by removing the battery and putting it again it worked but the time of the mobile was wrong ,though the date was right..
Since then whenever the mobile turns off it never turns on again unless i remove the battery and put it again !!
Another problem happened now .. The mobile is connected to the charger for like half an hour and the battery level never changes .. Thought the sign of charging is normally displayed !!
I am very disappointed from the battery life too, it lasts around 5 hrs only if data network is on .. Is this common !!

Manred, 03 May 2017Well the lg g5 SE has an plastic like primer on the back wich cover the metal and the lg g5 SE... moreThanks man! I think about spending some more money and going for the s6... I believe it's worth the extra money (about 60$ more).
Ody19, 29 Apr 2017Hi guys, i'm looking for a new phone and i am between Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) and LG G5 SE an... moreWell the lg g5 SE has an plastic like primer on the back wich cover the metal and the lg g5 SE is really easy to break because of the soft glass. I think you should get the lg g5 SE because of the 2 camera's on the back and because of the modular design. The lg g5 SE is also really easy to repair and has USB-type C and quickcharge 3.0 so i think you should get the Lg g5 SE
NickCY, 27 Apr 2017Got the update todayI have nouget 7.0 on my g5 se
Hi guys, i'm looking for a new phone and i am between Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) and LG G5 SE and i would like your opinion. Also, do you know about any problems that may appear in these 2 devices. If you have any other suggestions for smartphones about 300-350 euros (or dollars, it's pretty much the same) i am glad to hear them. Thanks!
SMFR, 05 Apr 2017Can anyone tell me whether G5 SE will get Nougat update or not? ThanksGot the update today
just had an email from LG stating the LG G5 SE (H840) is not getting the nougat update due to it not having enough memory to run it
The B&O audio module, how is the speaker quality and level? what is the number of watt??
Followgo, 11 Apr 2017G5 se is a lot better in camera. It's almost on par with last year galaxy s7 Not to say tha... moreYeah,also consider you will be downgrading a lot in terms of chipset.The SD 652 is far superior than the Exynos 7880 since it has A72 cores inside.And for gaming as well.Plus the G5 Se has 4k recording.
My LG G5 SE just got Nougat update last midnight with software version number V20c-IDN-XX. And yeah, it's Indonesian.
