What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only thing it does reliably, is fail. I originally purchased this phone primarily for its camera, which was much more advanced than other options at the time. After only four months of use, this phone could not pick up a reliable GPS signal, rendering all navigation inoperative. After that, the phone began to randomly power down in the middle of use. I got a replacement phone shipped out next day, and the GPS worked great. For two weeks, before losing GPS capability again and suddenly losing the ability to determine if it was 100% charged or 0% charged. Phone is now a fancy-looking paperweight on my desk.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not under any circumstances buy this phone? We have had this phone for less than 6 months. We are on the 4th replacement! The telephone has continuing problems, some o

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I Expected for the good money I paid!! Browser slow signal poor camera ok. But take more than 2 pictures consecutivly and The Entire System FREEZES up the snap a pic button completely disappears. Only way to bring it out of it is sleep and wake screen THEN circle or square buttons at bottom of phone and Close All! Then- go directly back into camera and its just White! Takes forever for the brain to catch up with the but! On its own it decides to corrupt or erase pictures and videos! :( which for me is Horribly in acceptable! The whole reason I wanted the phone was for the commercial it had about NEVER DELETE ANOTHER PHOTO! Hahaha ice had to delete a lot! If my device doesn't do it already for me including Pictures and video I WANTED! :( the battery is NoT As Good as it was Advertised! As for life of up time. If I knew then b4 purchasing this LG G5 I Would NOT HAVE BOUGHT IT! The Good is: sound system is Super! It takes really great photos WHEN U CAN GET IT TO RESPOND OR NOT DELETE YOUR STUFF!! And I Personally Prefer the removable battery as a option! And the Expandable Storage option!! Also The Metal body of this phone is SMART IT SAVED MY PHONE COMPLETLY SEVERAL TIMES!! But once that sticks out in my mind the most! I can honestly say I Accidently Dropped it while I was the passenger in a jeep wrangler with NO TOP and NO Doors! And Seen My NEW Phone Skidding Across the Road and We Were going at Least 55 mph!# I COULDNT BELIEVE IT! Still WORKED ONLY THING IT SUSTAINED WAS A BROKEN GLASS COVER OVER THE FLASH AND SOME NICKS TO THE BODY OF THE PHONE! AMAZING. I DIDNT EXPECT TO EVEN HAVE A PHONE WHEN I GOT TO IT! And I had just removed the case for cleaning So That happened with bare phone! Also I want to add this- If you purchased a Life proof case for your phone as I did.... You will see that in its case a ear phone jack Can Not Make Connection! So that Stinks Too. That's about all I can think of. It would be nice if LG would outfit the buyers of this mess the LG g5 with some kind of compensation or just another phone for swap if this one. Thanks. Best wishes and Good Luck. No software upgrades sure that when this phone does finally get one available that it could possibly not do much for this hot mess.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish I could rate this phone a 0 One of the worst phones I've ever owned. I got two phones one for me and one for my roommate and both phones have the worst battery life I have ever seen in a phone. For example I just took my phone off the charger not even 30 minutes ago and my battery is now at 38%. Don't buy an LG phone if you have a choice. Have tried to reach out multiple times and never received a response from LG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great phone for the money. I love this phone so far and have ordered the Cam Plus module and am looking forward to using it. Really love that the battery pops out easily and can pop another one in. No more having to get rid of your phone when the battery finally gives out. That right there makes this one great smart phone.
