What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This phone understands me! I love all the G Series phones. They are the easiest phones to use and yet have all the features I need and love. I won't buy any other phone for myself. However, my husband likes a smaller phone and I can't find a G Series to suit his needs. Please consider making a smaller LG G Series.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Has many glitches I have had this phone for about 8 months and loved it. Notice the "ed" in loved. One day out of the blue this phone wouldn't allow me to be part of group messages. It also would not send text messages. I kept getting a resend icon. I spoke with T-Mobil for hours trying to fix this to no avail. I did a master reset and I am still having the same issue. Not happy that I have to buy yet ANOTHER phone when I just finished paying for this one. Not a happy customer. Google the phone, you will see many complaints

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
Date published: 2017-11-07
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.
