What people are saying
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still luv'n the modular design of this phone Swap in a brand new OEM battery once a year for $10. The only premium phone with that option.
Date published: 2019-08-13
Rated 2 out of 5 by from LG... Wonder what it takes? Here is the answer I bought this phone after the G4 I owned suffered a boot loop failure less than a year after purchase. I was not thrilled with the gimmick nature of the G5 but was assured the quality was good and I like the removable battery and memory options. After less than two years the battery swelled up inside the phone and could not be removed, a poor design. It has continued to swell bulging the screen out, destroying the phone from the inside. If LG's idea is to build obsolescence into the phones to drive sales, it works, you are driving customers to buy someone else's phones. The G8 is another phone with useless gimmicks that do not perform well for the money. I would highly question that its build quality has been improved either. So what does it take? To start, how about dropping the gimmicks and improve the build quality and durability of the phones. After that focus on having the best features people already enjoy, camera, video, sound, display. Once you have the best quality phones, then find "useful" features to add, I stress again "useful". And please put the "on" button on the back of the phone again, you had it right the first time. To do all of this, I recommend giving Casio a call and team up with them. They have expertise in build quality, cameras, sound systems, and they are not a phone competitor. They also offer smart watches with unique sensor technologies which you could could make compatible with you phones giving a boost to both companies ecosystems.
