What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Phone! I've had my LG G5 for almost 2 years now and I absolutely love it. I've dropped it more times than I can count (even from a 2nd story balcony) with only a cheap amazon case on it and it has held up remarkably; no scratches or cracks. Battery life is still excellent and all the features still work like new. I look forward to the G7 ThinQ in a few months and hope that the quality put into the G5 is still present.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from GPS failed, Power Button failed, Hot, Restarts My GPS stopped working a few months in and never recovered. Its gets hot when charging. The power button isn't responding and so the screen stays on resulting in burn-in images of previous screens. Now the batteries arent properly configured and one doesnt charge at all. Have to disable Data just to charge it most of the time

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid phone with design flaws and weak battery As most of LG phone, it is packed with much power to handle any apps and tasks. G5 is solid phone with great specs and camera but design was outdated, useless module and poor battery life.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Horrible Had this phone for almost two years, because I'm still paying it off. It's been nothing but problems. Gps doesn't keep signal, battery life while idle dies, drops service at random places for no reason. Contacted lg about it, their idea was it was the carrier, even though another phone with the same carrier didn't have either the service or gps issues. Only positives to this phone are the speaker and camera.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Most things stopped working I bought this a year ago and 2 months ago the power button completely stopped working and if the phone died I had to go in and have it turned on. The battery runs out really fast even if you arent using it and you dont have any apps that run out the battery. Overall I am very disappointed with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid as a Rock, Fast as a Rocket I purchased the LG G5 RS988 in November 2016. It immediately impressed me by being so obviously well built. I also ordered the Campus and extra battery. Those accessories have added a great deal to the outstanding versatility and joy to use this incredible smartphone. Once I had the G5 RS988 for long enough to put it through every application of use throughout all aspects of my day-to-day life, I became equally impressed with how amazingly fast and smooth the operational performance this smartphone delivers. I have owned other brands, both more expensive or more heavily promoted, but never has another been equal to the performance, value and pleasure that the LG G5 RS988 has provided. Now, I will soon have what I expect to be another excellent experience when the new LG G7 ThinQ I have on order arrives. I am, however keeping the LG G5 in the family. It still performs perfectly and will certainly please my lucky son.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Battery life is below average I was talked into this phone at the Cellular Sales (a Verizon approved supplier) and was disappointed in the ease of use. The finger start button on back does not work consistently and I had to ask a friend who told be about tapping the front screen to turn it on. It worked as expected for tasks such as calling, texting and photo taking. I will probably go back to using my preferred phone.
