Best phone ever, attention to details, beautiful interface. Only downside is battery which doesn't last long. 9/10
Compare this to the Motorola Moto Z on paper, and this seems to be the winner with the inclusion of 3.5mm audio jack and a dual wide/ultrawide camera setup. It's just a shame that LG crippled the Magic Slot idea, or else it would be a true modular smartphone champion.
Hey guys its July 23, 2019, and i just bought a new battery dock (with battery included), and original fast charger also with the usb c type, cant just simply throw away this amazing phone, i know its not the fastest in the market, and wont be able (at least via OTA) to get andriod PIE or the followings, but it gets the job done, amazing camera, fast UI, long battery life (at least for the first year) and its one of the few flagships arround with fast charge 3.0 (no bullsh#t), if you're thinking about getting a new smartphone LG H850 (or the version of your country) dont think about it twice, cant go wrong.
The LG G5 is a great phone with a great camera. It has a battery that will not last the day if you don't have battery saver on. There are some quality issues with the manufacturing specifically with GPS. You may get a phone that will not lock into GPS so check it if you buy one.
Lu, 15 Aug 2016Hey GSMArena guys, 16:9 has never been and it will never be a photography aspect ratio. You sh... morebut you cant fight against the flow and that's the problem now
for me and for even you and gsm ... 16:9 is the standard on current tvs so if you want to share it with people it must be with that's standard .... yes 4:3 is nice but nothing we can do buddy but still you can take photos on 4:3 and watch then on an old lcd ,monitor or crt tv

Anonymous, 15 Aug 2016Brightness is not allIt is, to see content in direct sun is so important as if to have that phone or not. With higher reflections than amoled its important. Anyway what I mean is it got to be 800nits and here it is less on this šité...
Anonymous, 15 Aug 2016Brightness is not allIt got hw to make 800nits, but it somehow still make screen less bright than needed. Also I wonder how it perform so bad here and better on other sites... would need retest.
Hey GSMArena guys, 16:9 has never been and it will never be a photography aspect ratio. You should consult photographers before stating hard statements like "we prefer 16:9 more than any 4:3" In photography, everything wider than 3:2 ratio (70% of cameras) is considered a panoramic image. 16:9 cameras means bad portraits in horizontal orientation, and even worse portraits in portrait orientation. Since it was invented until today, 16:9 was a video standard, and never a photo standard. I could write 9 years about that, why and why, but there is google for you! Best wishes.

Chrjns, 24 May 2016I am confused, where in the review is written that the brightness level is 800? It is only 300... moreCheck Anand's review. 400 nits in manual is for a short time after which the software will adjust it and bring it down to around 330 nits. There is no way around it, if you want the screen to be bright indoors - the software won't allow it. 330 nits is very dim by its own and certainly too dim if compared to the competition.
Conclusion: don't get G5 if you need your screen to be bright enough indoors.
