Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very unhappy I bought about 2 months ago. Been back to Verizon store at least 3 times and spent an hour with a helpful technician at*611. I cannot keep phone charged. Cannot read a text or send a text if I am not connected to Wi-Fi. Even then it takes multiple time to get the app to respond. Had an apple and entered the store to purchase an apple, the persuasive salesman convinced me the LG was a better product and I would b very satisfied. He said pictures would b clearer than apple for taking pictures of granddaughter playing volleyball--very very untrue. Pictures very fuzzie! I don't no how I could b more unhappy with a product. Had an apple for about the last 6 years--not one complaint. Will not use Verizon again and definitely will NOT buy LG! I have been told nothing can b done because I did not respond within 14 days. I did not even realize there was a 14 day limit to complain. I am a grandmother who looks for help on technical items--shame on me!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible phone! I have been very loyal to this model since the g3 I've had the 4 and now the 5... I got it almost a year ago and have had to have verizon replace it 3 times. It runs insainly hot and images burn into the screen(if I'm on a menu for a minute and leave it I can still see that under what I'm currently looking at for about 5 mins, this has happened on all of them) ... The replacement before this one kept saying it was plugged in when it wasn't and this ones flash will not work for the camera... So all 4 of the G5s I've had have sucked. LG lots points here!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durability I have had my phone over a year. The only downfall is the battery power goes low quickly. However, I do have a lot of apps and over 2,000 pics. I have dropped my phone multiple times out of clumsiness and out of having frequent seizures. I literally dropped my phone 30 times or more. Although the screen is cracked and even the camera lenses, this phone still works great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid performing phone! This was a replacement for my G4 and it was leaps and bond better. Pictures and videos are great. Sound is great. Does everything I need it to do! I know there are newer phones out there now, but I see no real reason to upgrade. Still getting updates. SO once that ends then I will need to upgrade :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG G5 is great! I bought this phone a year ago, and it has worked great since day 1! I previously owned and LG G3 and decided to upgrade to a G5. I liked that the battery was long lasting, and removable. I travel often, so I purchased an extra battery for those long trips without proximity to an outlet or charging station. Camera takes amazing pictures and having the ability to expand the memory is always a plus! I love this phone!
