Happy G5 owner!G5 is my favorite phone of all-time. It isn't 100% perfect with ghosting and battery is a little weaker but it is close to it. Pixel could be 1A and is technically my daily driver but I use it mainly for data hotspot and battery will degrade fast soon my most recent to work only on Verizon. My Note 3 can work too but too old. I can buy a bunch of G5 batteries and it can last for life! I prefer typing on my G5 the most too.
LG haters and Pixel haters who never owned either all make me laugh. I use iPhone and Samsung every day too and I still prefer either LG and Google. Hardware-wise, G5 or V20. The last two greats with removable battery and IR blaster. Software-wise, Pixel. But G5 is close to it in fluidity. V20 is a notch below Pixel, G5, and SE in fluidity.
People can go hate and hate LG. I have owned multiple Apple and Samsung phones but I still prefer LG over both. Apple too restrictive and Samsung too laggy. Just a shame LG went with sealed batteries and removed IR blaster. I also despise glass rears. It makes my other phones dirtier. If I sell the S7e and lose Samsung Pay, my replacement for it will be a Sony. I want PS4 Remote Play, smoother skin, and matte rears.
My Vitamin A, B, and C for phone brands are Google, LG, and Sony. Maybe throw in Nokia (HMD) if my V20 gets laggy. The best Androids should remain smooth years after you purchase it. Nokia has it close to stock Android as they come.

Anonymous, 14 Aug 2017Based on your logic, you should never ever consider getting any iPhone either since they had "... moreWell if it continued to that degree then among many many other reasons it would indeed be a good logic on why not to
I never really use the AoD on the V20 just like I found the edge display on Samsung a gimmick. My V20 seems to be slowing down three months after I got it. I would clear app cache and still the same. Pure Android for now on.
The only knock is my Pixel will overheat every single day and be only good for a year since it is the only one that will work on Verizon. I don't want to use two lines anymore. Wasting an extra $100. My G5/V20 and iPhone SE/S7 edge can back each other up as browsers and GPS to last longer. My Pixel battery should be degraded quickly within a year.
Pure Android on Verizon is the only way I want to go. LG's skin can feel laggy and heavy over time. I just find it odd that the G5 is still smooth after updated to Nougat but the V20 isn't. Same UX but the G5's is as fluid as the Pixel. It was almost like they were made by different teams but the G5 crew was better with software optimization.
I really don't mind selling my S7 edge but I really do like another phone to back up ny iPhone SE for GPS and like Samsung Pay. I rotate between 3 phones every single day. One as the phone/hotspot, one as a browser when I access free Wi-Fi or media player which tend to be my LGs, and one for GPS (SE or S7e).
Doing DoorDash or Postmates with plenty of downtime, you need a minimum of three phones with you to save each other's battery life. One phone with me all day using data and location on won't last. My next phones will always be Pixels for now on. And even then, I would generally use it as a data hotspot. Overheats like crazy.
Aaaand, there UI still looks like a Saturday morning cartoon gone bad.
Good luck Lg, we need competition in the Android space for the benefit of consumers.
Anonymous, 14 Aug 2017Looks good but will boot loop in a few months , never ever again am I buying an LG. Based on your logic, you should never ever consider getting any iPhone either since they had "death grip" way back from iPhone 4.
i just hope it doesnt have the bootloop of death too. lg please fix this
Lol the comments are so positive now but then LG will announce it and reveal the launch price and the comments will turn into "LG is drunk" and "RIP LG".
AnonD-653707, 14 Aug 2017All around good news for LG; Apple is buying OLED from them and V30 is going to turn around LG... moreNot only apple.majority lg supply p oled for xiaomi etc...p oled mostly use on lg smart watch. Lg oled tv one of the best in the world. I love the colour on p-oled compare to ips.
AnonD-426158, 14 Aug 2017Dont confuse over LG P-oled and samsung amoled.
Both are OLED technologies with no sufficient variation to matter power-consumption-wise. The optimizations come from the hardware that drives the display: intelligent refresh rates, intelligent brightness, separation of the screen in multiple sections which can independently be shut down, etc.
All around good news for LG; Apple is buying OLED from them and V30 is going to turn around LG's mobile fortune.
kakouille, 14 Aug 2017Who buys LG?
lol!!I DO I DO :)
Happy G5 owner!
Anonymous, 14 Aug 2017Looks good but will boot loop in a few months , never ever again am I buying an LG. I've had the G5 for almost a year with no bootloops.
AnonD-327936, 14 Aug 2017My V20 hasn't had an update for 7 months! Do you trust after sales support with the V30?!Weird. My G5 got one back on April 17 for a security and some app updates I believe.
But, does it really matter if it is still working properly? I've had some other phones update and they were glitchy afterward.
Kiyasariin, 14 Aug 2017Lel. an LG version of S8. and a beautiful one at that. :DS8 is the Sammy version of the G6, of which the G6 was the first to show this design and come to market with it.
Drago SSGSS, 14 Aug 2017This is literally S8 designG6 was the first out with this design.

October 17th will make it 3 years since I have my S5 and I'm using the original battery that was packaged with the phone. The battery is still going strong and the battery doesn't overheat or have high battery drains. My experience with Samsung is basically perfect.
