Wide Angle Lens
Get the whole picture! Our eyes can take in a lot, but this camera grabs even more at 135°. Capture a sprawling skyline, a packed stadium concert, or the entire beach, all that your eyes can see plus more.
Magnifying Zoom In and Out
Go Extreme! Zoom out ultra wide (0.5X) on the LG G5. Take a variety of photos and videos from a tight close-up to a vast scene by simply pinching the screen. Just pinch to see it all.
The photo is the frame. Take both a standard and wide angle photo at the same time. Make your picture pop and stand out against 4 photo-frame background effects: Fisheye, B&W, Vignette, Lens blur. Your shares and uploads will be more likeable than all the rest.
A different kind of "Sun" screen. When the sun shines bright, so does the screen. The enhanced IPS Quantum display is brighter, more vivid, and clearer even in outdoor daylight.
Save your thumbs. No more hitting the button to check the time, date, or notifications. With the LG G5, the important stuff is already up and on! Just look.

LG... Wonder what it takes? Here is the answerI 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.

I had Lg G5 Verizon unlocked for 2 years. Since then, the phone just received one update to android 7.
It seems that G5 has been updated to android 8. However, when I check the update menu in my setting, it shows it is up to date. where is the problem?
