What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent performance AT the time this telephone was offered to me to replace an not that old but becoming soon obsolete, I did not hesitate to take it. I wanted the all black but was not available right away, so I had to chose the silver model and, guess what, I did not want to wait to enjoy it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this phone Only had my G5 since February and still have tons to learn about using it, but so far love everything about it. Uncomplicated to figure out. Get great pictures. Battery life is terrific and charging time is fast. Thank you for a great product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from just no good i am on my second g5 in less then a year, this one i've only had about three months and it is already having problem, this will be my last LG phone after buying 6 of them. i can't take video's unless i'm on facebook, screen freezes to name a few. lost all my pictures, as the auto back up did not work [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, sturdy, great! I got my G5 as a replacement for a Samsung Galaxy S5 that I got from Amazon and had lots of issues. I am very happy to have switched to LG, they always have great product. The G5 does exactly what it is supposed to do and is not pre-loaded with extra stuff you don't want. The cameras are excellent too, and the design is great! If it was waterproof, it would simply be perfect (although someone did put it in a bucket of water for 2 minutes and still worked after that).
