What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had this phone for over 3 years Considering this phone came out in 2016 it is pretty amazing and I am having a hard time finding a new phone with all its features in a reasonable price range. Of course, some its features, like the removable battery can't be found for any price in a new phone. To be fair, I have replaced parts on it like the screen and fingerprint reader/power button on the back. For me though, the fact that you can get parts cheaply and easily from Amazon and there are plenty of YouTube videos on how to repair make this phone even more desirable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features Its very fast loading, battery lasts a long time, more that enough internal memory, and best feature: the battery is replaceable!
Date published: 2020-12-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent camera, ok microphone or network Best camera with wide angle option and replaceable battery. I used it for four years. Now phone calls often have problems. When call is connected, people cannot hear me, but I can hear them. It appears to be a microphone issue or connection issue. So, I will have to let it go now. If there is no such issue, I would use it more.

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?
