Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worse lg g series phone I have been an avid lg phone user and often praise their phones. After owning the G3 and enjoying it for some time researched the G5 and purchased one almost immediately had issues. Purchased another different worse problems now own 2 useless phones not worth the box they came in. These are not inexpensive and expect better quality than this. Rated it one star because it insisted on not leaving blank

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of The best phones ever made. I bought this phone after release in march, 2016. Still it is working perfectly. Great speed and performance. Love the wide angle camera. The 16 MP shooter is also very good. I would suggest only one thing and that is DON'T BYE THE VERIZON MODEL. AND IF YOU DO THEN DON'T UPGRADE IT TO ANDROID NOUGAT. I prefer to bye the T-Mobile version as I am using it over two years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wi-FI calling feature not on this version The reason person is buying unlocked phone is to have a freedom. I still can't understand why this feature "wifi calling" in not enabled on this version??? This was the only reason why I sold my phone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb in nearly everything I have had this phone for over a year and so far its been great. * Fast, great performance that feels similar to latest phones in all the things I do. * Good battery life; nearly always makes it through the day. If needed,carry a spare battery (inexpensive on eBay); you can swap one in seconds. It also has Quick Charge 3.0 so recharging is very fast. * Has the desired features - beautiful high resolution screen, very fast fingerprint sensor, NFC (enables you to tap & pay) IR Blaster (control TV and other devices) micro-SD card expansion and USB C connector. * Excellent cameras; the wide angle is something I don't think I could do without now. * A 'Just Right' size. Very strong metal case. * Very easy to repair! My GPS stopped working and needed a repair. Amazingly, this phone is simple to open and fix with just normal tools and little skill. Everything is modular, parts are inexpensive with lots of YouTube videos to guide you. About all that is missing is wireless charging and waterproofing, but none of the phones with those have the IR blaster or removable battery. Current prices, especially for used ones, make this probably the best value of any phone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Touch display is not I have had this phone for over a year, I have contacted version about the display coming on by its self, in my pocket. They told me that is just the way G5s are. Now I am having problems with the button on the back not working, the phone is only a little over a year old and I still oue over 240 on it and verison will not work on because I did not pay there extra fee. I. Also think the camera is not as good version and LG claim.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Originally not so much This is my second LG android phone. The first worked just fine - just got old. This one has worked OK for a little over a year with no problems. But about three weeks ago, the email app started closing spontaneously, and would not stay on for more than a few seconds. I went to Verizon where they uninstalled and reinstalled the app, but that didn't work. They then did a factory reset which also didn't work. They were out of ideas. So I emailed LG support looking for help. Never heard from them. Emailed a second time, still no response. Apparently once an LG product is in the consumers hands, you are on your own.
