What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved the phone until the OS update I pre-bought this phone. It was the first time i was ever able to. I LOVED it! Then the update happened and since then the camera doesn't focus. I searched and its a phone wide issue. Unfortunately I can't go back to the previous OS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Great Phone !!!!! I have had 2 lg g5s. One I have had for over a year..the other for about 6 months. I simply do not see why so many people have problems with this phone. I have only had one issue on the older one..the battery gave out and bulged against the back of the phone causing the nfc to not work..just put in a new battery and it worked again. I am an Uber driver and use this phone up to 13 hours a day with no problems. GPS and maps works great! No problems at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Should be a 5 So ive been hesitant to write this review. This phone should be a 5 star. The screen is great and the cameras are awesome, but wow does this thing have issues. Since day one I've had connectivity issues. I have never had a phone that has such a difficult time connecting to anything. The internet hardly ever works if I'm not within 10 ft of a wireless router. It will say I have full 4g and then tell me I'm offline when I open chrome or spotify. This is a major headache. Ive spent so many long trips in silence just waiting for spotify to connect. I thought this might be a network issue even though my mom has the same service and no problems so I took it in to verizon where I was told that I have to do a soft reset everytime the internet goes. This maybe works half the time. Then there's the fact that almost overnight I was unable to make calls in my house any more. Again mom has same service (verizon) and has no problems whatsoever. Now I have to go stand in the snow or a very specific part of my upstairs to make a call. Then there's the gps. I assumed it was a software issue that would be patched out but later found out the hardware is just defective. The antenna is not good. The GPS NEVER connects properly. Its a major hassle especially since it can take google maps forever to connect to the network and when it finally does it thinks I'm miles away from where I actually am. Its even more of a hassle because I live near the Canadian border and every once in a while it thinks I'm in Canada so it informs me of roaming charges. Thankfully its never placed me there long enough to cost me anything but the prospect is very bothersome. I use maps alot for my job and a year and a half into owning this phone its becoming unbearable. Screen bleed and battery life are also issues but I could forgive them if I wasnt already so extremely let down by this phone. I just want a working phone and for what I'm spending on this thing I think I should have one. Seriously I could have bought a laptop or a nice tablet for the price of this phone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Features, Great Battery I was weary about getting the G5, I have had the G4 and G3 previously and was very disappointed, the battery life was awefull. Well that all changed with the G5, it is really cool, battery life is excellent, and if need be you can very easily swap out the battery for a new one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Do not upgrade to Nougat if you rely on LTE B17 Upgraded to Nougat as soon as it came out. Immediately lost all connectivity to LTE Band 17. I bought this phone specifically after comparing it to other manufactures phones due to the specifications and the fact that it had an LTE Band 17 antenna. Nougat killed it. LG wont provide a timeline of when it will be fixed. I assume we must wait till Oreo comes out. There are multiple forums with people having the same issue as me. LG has done little to address it. I assume this review will not be posted, like my previous one before. I have left reviews on other sites that LG cannot dictate what goes on and what doesn't. It should be a simple software fix that gets pushed out. Buy at your own risk. If you know for sure you do not need LTE Band 17 for service, then you should be good to go. However if you are running on AT&T's network, or Cricket, etc you should be warned. At my in-laws we only get LTE Band 17 service. My wife's cheaper ZTE Axon 7 Mini and my in-laws cheaper Android phones get crystal clear reception. My phone, the supposed best one, is a paper weight. It is useless. I basically have a glorified clock/alarm.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It died out of nowhere I bought this phone September 2016 and it was great, worked really well no issues. However, I went to use it yesterday (less then a year and a half) and it shut off on it's own, wouldn't respond to the charger, wouldn't turn on couldn't bring up the reboot menu or anything. I did take it to the store to look at it and they said that it was a goner. This phone showed no signs that anything was wrong, it had no physical damage to it, wasn't dropped, has a case and it just stopped working. I am really disappointed because now that the phone will not turn on I cannot get any of the information of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from None Like the G5, but.... I bought this January this year in the UK. There's no phone like it, in my opinion. I would buy it again and again. Wish the G6 also had the G5 design just for choice. I love it with passion. That aside. My G5 just dimmed off on its own days back while I tried playing a video (battery was about 80% charged). It has since refused to boot. Is it battery? Screen? What? I'm in Nigeria now - no parts here, no LG mobile services. Every attempt to contact LG online has been fruitless. Very, very awful!!!!!!! Expensive products like this should have a special customer service attention. People travel and so their gadgets should travel with them. Limiting the G5 service to certain countries really does no good. Give me a working solution and you get all 5 stars. Cheers!
