cro, 26 Mar 2016garbage battery life for the G5 lowers my confidence in the One 10's battery life...If only you could top it in 30 seconds .... oh wait you CAN.
How much does your Samsung take to top up. 60 minutes? 90 minutes? Do you take a nap while waiting? Good luck with your shiny tin can.
Swappable battery >>>>>>>>> ALL battery lives...
I actually preordered the S7 edge with the local carrier but still havent got my phone. After seeing this review looks like I'm inclined to get the G5 instead. Even if the S7 camera is better in some regards I love taking wide angle shots using my dslrs and this would be a good phone for those times I dont have my dslr around.
People complain a lot about battery life but I think this should be fine, my G3 lasts a full day with lots of COC so I think the G5 would be similar. Too bad the wireless charging is gone.
A very great product , but left some things to be desired ,battery life is really poor as old flagship models like g3 and g4. Display is great with 1880 contrast ratio but brightness is really poor,it should have been at least 400 nit.
Otherwise it's a superb phone
Great phone just wish it has multi window in retail units I will miss that feature😞
AnonD-111717, 26 Mar 2016LG G5's Always On Display blows S7/Edge's Always On Display out of the water. really surprise... moreAlways on display is a gimmick anyway that only promotes laziness. Besides, it's not going to matter how much less draining the feature is on the g5 when the difference in battery life is virtually 25%. Bottom line is the g5 loses to the s7 where it counts.
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.
