What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid as a Rock, Fast as a Rocket I purchased the LG G5 RS988 in November 2016. It immediately impressed me by being so obviously well built. I also ordered the Campus and extra battery. Those accessories have added a great deal to the outstanding versatility and joy to use this incredible smartphone. Once I had the G5 RS988 for long enough to put it through every application of use throughout all aspects of my day-to-day life, I became equally impressed with how amazingly fast and smooth the operational performance this smartphone delivers. I have owned other brands, both more expensive or more heavily promoted, but never has another been equal to the performance, value and pleasure that the LG G5 RS988 has provided. Now, I will soon have what I expect to be another excellent experience when the new LG G7 ThinQ I have on order arrives. I am, however keeping the LG G5 in the family. It still performs perfectly and will certainly please my lucky son.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Battery life is below average I was talked into this phone at the Cellular Sales (a Verizon approved supplier) and was disappointed in the ease of use. The finger start button on back does not work consistently and I had to ask a friend who told be about tapping the front screen to turn it on. It worked as expected for tasks such as calling, texting and photo taking. I will probably go back to using my preferred phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Limitless It has so many features that it has a little something for everyone. One great feature is the modular bottom, being able to swap batteries or buy modules for the phone. It also has a sensor for everything so you always know what's going on. The one thing I didn't like about it is that the battery wasn't hot-swappable. If there was a way you could swap the battery without turning the phone off, that would make it perfect. The screen also has a tendency to burn after long periods of being used.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent phone, just a couple of issues. I've had my LG G5 for a year and a half now. Overall it's been a good phone, but I have had a few issues. The camera lags while taking pictures, often resulting in blurry shots. It does not identify any sd card when installed, so the memory on it is limited and not expandable. The glass over the wide angle camera cracked while it was laying on a table undisturbed (this happened with mine and my daughter's, the phone was laying still and the glass just spiderwebbed). The call quality is good, speakers are good, and battery life is average.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Caught fire I bought this phone for 500 bucks. Glitches. Camrea stopped working after 3 months and gps also stopped working. Well one day I went to plug my phone in and the charger port caught fire. Thought it was the charger so got a new one for 45 bucks. Well that one as well caught fire.sad thing is I'm still paying off the phone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Problems with phone when I first got the phone I really enjoyed it a lot. I loved all the features I loved what it did and slowly and surely everything started going down the toilet.. I am still paying for this phone which is a shame because so many things don't work correctly I can't hear through speakers the lighting is bad it doesn't stay charged I don't want to buy another phone because I don't like any of the other phones. I could keep going on and on and on. I'm very disheartened by the whole thing . there needs to be some sort of recall on these phones I have read online there are all kind of problem. we should be reimbursed or given a better phone

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this phone last year. I am still very happy with its design and removable battery. I don't know why it was underrated. It is the best phone of time and has everything I need even today.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible phone won't stay charged for even 8 hours This is the worst phone ever! It will not hold a charge and dies within 6 hours even when it is not used. I have taken off all unnecessary apps and do not even use it and the battery completely drains, even if location finder is off. I will NEVER buy another LG product again in my life. What a waste of money!
