What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stay Away from this horrible phone Received this phone as a gift from my children. They had saved their money and purchased it for me on mother's day. My children asked why I had not replied to replied to some of their text messages. A colleague had also noted that I had not replied to text messages. Long story short; the phone has now been repaired but still is extremely selective as to what text messages it will receive as well as the message alert light is equally as selective in notifying me of messages. This phone is a pile of garbage. I'm truly sorry that my children wasted their hard earned money!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A really good phone at an exceptional value I bought this phone 7 months ago and have been very happy with it esp once I put in the extended battery on it. I really like that I can change the battery so easily like that and add more memory if I wanted to. As a photo buff, I really appreciate its high resolution and vibrant colors. And my young son who always uses my phone loves it as well for his movies and Youtube. I am a photo enthusiast so the LG's superior camera phone was one compelling reason that move my decision. I owned three DSLRs so I usually have at least one of them with me at all time but there were times when I had to rely on the LG's camera phone and it is definitely one of the best out there. I am a little dissapointed that it didn't last however. Last week all of a sudden I lost mobile network connection to Sprint and after a few days of painful diagnosis largely due to my bad experience with Sprint's rep they determined it's the phone. So I shipped it back to LG for repair and thought they did a good job with the warranty claim process. So I hope to get it back soon and get many more years of useful service out of it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cra My boyfriend bought this phone and out of no where sitting on the seat in the truck because he is a truck driver. We hear a crack and its the camera on the phone. It doesn't hold a charge which is no good on the road. And the phone is a month old. Don't waste your money. The data stays on even when its shut off. Worst phone on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Innovation Hey.. Actually I was forced to buy Lg G5 againest Iphone7 by my brother. I started with zero interest on this mobile. But I once started using this mobile I can simply say I got "******Addicted*****" to this crazy buddy. Camera is the best thing amongest any other mobile you find in Lg G5. Wide angle camera captures 100% of your view and haha.. It incledes all your fammily members in a single Image. Display quality is at its peaks. Preferable for the game lovers. Lg Health is one of the best feature in this mobile. It always updates you with your regular workouts and tries to keep you always fit and healthy. Stop waiting and grab one for u..
