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.

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 Âšité...
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.
Where is an email address for the 860 to get drivers that work. ? The LG bridge and LG mobile support tool don't list the 860.

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.

Bought LG G5 and returned it after few hours. The display is super dim, nowhere close to the claimed 800 or 900 nits. I guess it's about 300/350 nits max at full manual brightness. Couldn't find a way to configure the brightness higher. Automatic won't give you more indoors so the phone is useless. Got Galaxy S7 instead and the screen is amazing.
Too bad of course, because except the display G5 looks great and there is a replaceable battery which was one of the main factors to buy it in the first place.
LG - stop using these crap IPS displays and move to AMOLED or try to use something similar to Sony's IPS, I've got Xperia Z5 Premium and it's IPS is much brighter than the crap in LG G5 (Max brightness on manual again).
Before you start screaming that the light burn your eyes - remember that we are all different and each got his own needs, I need an bright screen - yes, even indoors.
400nits manual mode, 800nits in auto(with sensor). Source: notebookcheck. So its confirmed, but of course its quite dim - you have to calibrate brightness in auto(I think G5 allow to set it somehow / you can use some app).
