What People Are Saying

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Phone At An Affordable Price. LG is number ONE, and has the best quality products, I wish I could own them all. I was given this phone about 18 months ago, for my 50th birthday present. It has been a great performing phone, with the best specs and design. It still looks like new, and takes great pictures. I would like to give this one to my grandson, and update to one of the newer models with a 6 inch screen. LG phones are second to none, and so much fun. Keep up the good work LG. The quality is awesome, the phones are practical, and stylish. The prices are right, even if your budget is tight. LG is top rank, and won't break the family bank. I would welcome the opportunity to do a review of the LGV30 on twitter and YouTube.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Phone! I've been using LG phones for a number of years now and the G5 gives me no reason to change. Terrific camera, responsive and no worry of running short with the removable battery.

My effort hours and much research before deciding this phone finally paid off. I am highly satisfied and happy with this Phone.
