What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of use It has been about a month that I have my LG G5. I waited a long time to obtain it. I wasn't disappointed. Clear picture, ease of use. Like how I can place apps that I use frequently in small folder tabs on my front screen, not having to scroll across the phone to retrieve each time I need to use specific apps. Camera tab always ready to take great pictures. If I had one negative, can't seem to turn off notification sound tab, small neg though and doesn't cancel out the great features of the phone overall. Well pleased with my LG G5

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good phone for a while I got my G5 last year, April 2016. I upgraded from the LG G3, which is a great phone. The G5 was a little smaller, slimmer, and lighter than the 3, which was great. I don't like bulky phones. The fingerprint sensor in the back is a great feature. The dual cameras (regular and wide angle) are excellent. There are some great features to this phone. I like the removable battery, but the modular thing is not so great. The modules that are available are meh at best. Another camera, ok. I'm not big on photography. After almost a year, I have switched back to my G3. The GPS on this phone became unusuable (which apparently is a common issue). As in, trying to use Waze, it would never get a signal so using Waze was pointless. The touch screen started to not work sometimes. I was having issues sending and receiving texts. There are things I really like about this phone, the things that didn't work really pushed me to stop using it. Maybe the newer versions of the phone won't have these issues, hopefully they've been corrected. At this point, the G6 is just around the corner, I'd hold off on the 5 and see what the 6 has to offer. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
