What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from GPS Issues and Slow software udpates I've gone through several models of the phone (H860, RS988, LS992, H820) and have encounter loss of GPS service on most of them except for the latest RS988 that I've received (Built Jan 2017). It received Android Nougat pretty quickly but have not heard anything about Android Oreo. Default LG Keyboard is not very convenient to use and I've switched to Gboard. Seldomly use any of the included LG apps. On the plus side, the camera is really good and the swappable battery is great for the longevity of the device!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Phone Restarts continuously My phone started restarting all of a sudden. Even after factory reset I have been facing this issue. When I checked on many forum I came to know that many people are facing this issue and no one has yet posted any solution to it. I have sent it for repair. I hope it will work after repair and the problem will not come back in future. The battery is removable along with lower portion of the phone. In some phones, lower portion doesnt fit in line with entire phone so it feels weird to hands. I had to exchange my device 2-3 time to get proper phone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good phone! I really like the LG G5. I'm using it as my secondary, or workout/running phone but the G5 has made me interested in the newer model cell phones from LG. I really like the fact that LG is using aptX and aptX HD in their phones. From what I'm able to discern, having music headphones and earbuds that use aptX and aptX HD it's a worth while experience, very good musical rendering to my ears. I like the G5's overall experience and will definitely consider LG for my next cell phone purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Item every battery life is low and GPS connection problem the is no accuracy every time. application shutting down when I open

Rated 3 out of 5 by from LG G5 I have had other LG phone and been very pleased with them. This one is missing my favorite features the volume buttons in the back. With my G5 I am forever changing volume while holding or putting in case. That is a very big nuisance. Is your company going to keep them on the side. The other problem is while holding where the cover mounts leaves an edge that is very in comfortable. The battery joins at bottom and is hard to remove when needed. Please rethink your changes. Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LG Makes Great Phones! The RS988 setup was so easy I have purchased 7 LG Phones for family over the last 6 years and have only had an issue with one of them. I know I can expect the same reliability from the RS988 that I purchased. Setup was fairly easy and after I transferred the SIM card from an active phone and set the Network Mode the phone connected to the GSM network and I was able to make phone calls and download apps.via 4G and WiFi. Phone upgraded to Android V7 automatically and is functioning well. Phone has some useful pre-installed apps but does not have any of the Carrier BLOATWARE usually found on Carrier versions.
