Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning device This is my first LG phone since my Rumor 2, but not my first Android. Having used several major flagship phones in the last several years, I can say very quickly that I am very impressed with the entire device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Phone, Vibrant Screen, Excellent Battery The LG G5 is a wonderful device, I have just recently switched from the ZTE Axon Pro 64 Gb with the same QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution screen and I am astounded at the quality of the LG G5 screen. The colors are vibrant, and sharp with colors that are very accurate and bright. The screen is 5.3" and very easy to watch movies, read text or play games. The Always-On Display is an excellent feature, with a very minimal drain on the battery throughout the day. The battery even though only 2800 mah is a fierce competitor when it comes to extended day use. I have made it through a full day and still didn't have to charge it until later on in the night, and this was with some heavy use in apps such as Facebook, Youtube, Spotify, Gmail, and games and that is with the Always-On Display on all day. The removable battery is a plus with so many devices switching to non-removable battery, this gives you the ability to easily switch the batteries out when it is needed, especially handy for road trips. The Snapdragon 820 CPU and Adreno 530 GPU is a wonderful combination that allows you to have a wonderful experience and runs very smoothly and efficiently. Games run wonderfully and the phone doesn't seem to heat up like the Snapdragon 810 did. The UI is very easy to learn with an optional app drawer if you switch your homescreen, otherwise your apps are there for you to easily get into. The upgrade to Android 7.0 Nougat is excellent, with some new features in settings, such as themes. The camera is where the LG G5 really shines, with 16MP/8MP dual shooter on the rear with OIS and stabilizer it can take wonderful photos. The ability to get a wide angle shot with the rear 8MP is wonderful and gives you a full view of your enviroment, the 16MP camera is a real winner when it comes to clarity and crisp color. The front facing camera is an 8MP camera that is great in itself, you can say a number of catchphrases for the camera to take a selfie as well as gesture shots using your hand. Video recording is great with audio and picture, especially in 4k. The speaker is very loud and easy to hear lower audio from videos, when it comes to the calls it is crisp and clear with speech easily understandable in call, have not had any problems from my end or the person on the other end. I have not had a chance to try and friends(modules) out on this device, would love to try the B&O Hifi module as well as the Cam module and 360 and VR Headset module, I have also seen the remote ball that you can control when you are not home that has a camera and you can roll around to check on things such as animals and make sure everything is running smoothly at home. I would love to spend some time with these, but overall this phone is a solid 10 with extended battery life, wonderful QHD screen as well as the rear shooter on the back. If you are in the market for a new smartphone I would venture over to the LG side of things and take a look at the high quality phones that they have made such as this one or the LG V20. Thank you LG for such a wonderful product!!
