Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs improvement After six weeks, I have few good things to say about the phone. Here we go: Pros: Battery life, great battery, great charge time. Screen, the display is nice, well adjustable, pretty. Built in screen protector is a nice touch. Removable battery is cool. The themes that are available for free are cool. Cons: Support: terrible. I have tried several times to get help through the built in app about questions. Never gotten a response. Pop-ups: every time a link is selected from a sms, a warning about the dangers of doing so. No way to disable. At least once daily notifications about the features that are not being used. Notifications: while it is easy to set the ringer only, things like setting vibration for text, and volume for ringer are difficult. Bloatware: all the basic android, plus LG's special selection of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing CameraS I love my phone overall (fast processing, easy to use, nice fit in my hand, good battery life) and I absolutely love both lenses in its camera. I don't mean front and back. I mean the wide angle lens and the regular lens. The G5 also has an expandable memory. With a 64 gig card I added, my phone has a lot of memory for the great videos and shots I take. Like to share? Me too. I upload and download FAST at home or on the road.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from troublesome phone THis LG5 has been troublesome from the start. Screen goes black regularly, then very difficult to get back up again. Eventually requiring regular re-sets and those failed as well after 8 months.
