Aside from battery endurance, i think this phone is pretty solid. It has great cameras and one of those benchmark champ. The modular design wont let you use 3rd party higher-capacity-battery (yes i know about the camera grip but it's not looking that good), but at least, it charges faster than galaxy S7
GSM, you got 360 videos working on android chrome! Good job, you're the best! :D
Now I'm wondering if the battery is detachable from the the bottom holder. If you have to get the battery replacement from LG, I doubt they would be making the replacements 2 years down the line unless the g5 explode with popularity.
LG plz just 7 hours in browser hhh
what happen to 2016 smartphones s7 just weak in broswer to
dasman, 26 Mar 2016What type of display does it use? IPS LCD?It uses Quantum LCD which is LG's LCD Display.
The way I use my phone, my 3 year old nexus 4 with 6.0.1 lasts me all day and it only has 2100 mAh. I mainly do messaging and whatsapp, some browsing, and listening to music when I drive.
I think G5 will last me more than a day, plus fast charging and removable battery.
Time to order Aukey QC 3.0 Car charger.
Anonymous, 26 Mar 2016Don't forget that Always On display on an AMOLED screen is much worse, because it will burn in... moreyes you are right All AMOLED screens suffer from burn-in issues, my galaxy s2 screen burned out :(
As always with LG....worst battery life of the top crop...
That modularity is also IMO...meh.
Waiting for the X performance review and why the hell did LG put such a 'small' battery in? It's average compared to s7. Web browsing score is very low and that's one of the most important things in a smartphone. Come on lg wtf
Poor battery killed this phone ,any flagship phone should have at least 90 hours endurance rating ,14+ web browsing and 15+ video playing capabilities.
Nima, 26 Mar 2016Wow!!!it's interesting!!battery life is better than G4!!pay attention my friends!g5 decrease i... moreStill a 60 hours of standby time is sucks. Idk y LG keep making phone with shitty battery
garbage battery life for the G5 lowers my confidence in the One 10's battery life...

Your information is drivel.
'Burn in' indeed!
I can't wait to get this thing. I will user the camera module when travelling and the DAC fairly regularly (need to see how it affects battery life). I'm sure a third party vendor will make a battery with a bit more juice. For me, the replaceable battery, IR, FM Radio, USB Type C and the awesome camera trumps the S7.
LG G5's Always On Display blows S7/Edge's Always On Display out of the water.
really surprised, only down by 10 hour, for sure Samsung's is not 1%/hour, the difference is too big.
and it's still a pre-production unit!
60 hours indurance rating by Gsmarena which means this phone will not lasts long for more than 12 on a heavy usage...
After owning the G4 I won't be buying the G5. Has various bugs and the quality of the hardware isn't as good as Samsung's and HTC's (it's not about the metal).
Seriously, all these phones this past year have terrible post processing. The sensors are of good quality yet companies don't know how to post process. They just over sharpen and add as much noise reduction as possible. Look at the grass rofl (s7, G5, etc.). Now look at the grass shots with the top of the line Lumia/Nokia phones, very realistic.
AnonD-379427, 26 Mar 2016This is really crap.
All gimmicks and not functional.
Everyone changes their phones ye... moreActually you speak for yourself. Less and less people do that nowadays, the reason(ing) is simple, new generation hardly offers new things unless you're gaming. Cameras are moving with the pace of the snail, SoCs are fast enough and are rarely stressed by anything over Cortex A53, screens have maxed (any more resolution and you don't see a difference).
At this point people should buy and not the latest and greatest, because as it turns out the "latest and greatest" is 5% better than last year's. And value they add through this modular concept.
The phone and its software are ugly so I'll stay away. But that's how future phones should be. Mimicking PCs (everything can run on them, you can uprade them), not like Samsung and Apple who are relics from 00s.
Phones are our personal computer and we ought to hold on to them for as long... The modular idea is brilliant. I hope they'd refine it next generation and hopefully make the phone look less ugly and trite (as this review puts it). They may have an extra customer if they do that (never bought LG in the past).
