What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My LG5 is great BUT IT HAS PROBLEMS I purchased the LG5 through TMobile and I fell in love with this phone, but within 5 3mths of having this phone it COMPLETELY STOPPED WORKING. Would not turn on, would not charge. I was able to get a manufacturer warranty replaced phone, but during this time I had a purchase the LG20.. Not a big fan of this phone. Once I got the replacement k5 I was able to take the k20 back:( SO I recently switched from Tmobile to Metro and I wanted to use the replacement K5, but...guess what the replacement phone still won't turn on and I'm out of time with the manufacturer warranty. I love this K5 but I can't use it.. Thus makes me sad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from As an owner of LG's G3, G4, and others... I love the camera, and the battery life and speed on this phone was remarkable for it's time. But, I've had screen burn issues lately, and the phone is definitely showing wear. For some reason, I find myself back at LG's doorstep each and every time I need a new smartphone, and I believe that's due to their impressive software and design. I believe LG has consistently aced these categories since day 1. I love the themes, I love the UI, and it's just a gorgeous phone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unexplained WiFi Failure = Useless Smartphone Nice phone till the Wifi stopped working (Grayed out saying WiFi not allowed). Phone was/is still in great physical condition but since the wifi went out it's been limited on what apps it can install/update as well as system firmware since it stopped working after the old LS992ZV5 update from 2016. I tried multiple solutions from online forums before giving up and switching phones. Now sadly this is just an expensive backup camera.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value Great phone. It works just as good as my former Samsung Note 4 for half the cost. I have been using the phone for 2 years now. I would buy another LG phone. Everything works well..fingerprint reader, camera, local LG apps etc. The only thing that doesn't work is google pay. Google pay will not run on my version. The error is the phone is rooted or altered. I'm using the phone right out of the box brand new from Amazon. No rooting or altering of the stock operating system has taken place. There is also no way to open a problem log with LG about this issue or searching their community forum about this also does not return and help. If you plan on purchasing an LG phone I would highly recommend verifying their phones will run Google Pay or any of the Pay services.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So-so I finally have a phone with a "soft" home button instead of a physical button that eventually breaks. After a couple of years of use, this has held up pretty well. It took a minor fall recently which cracked the lens glass and may have hurt the fingerprint reader - reads about half the time. The CPU, disk I/O, and wifi performance have been quite good. The big disappointment has been audio streaming. Both spotify and pandora will CRASH THE PHONE after a couple minutes of playing. Even the bundled player has had issues, so I installed vlc to play music stored on the phone. Youtube and other video streams are OK. This has been the case for every update the phone has received.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy! I'm pretty terrible about breaking phones, but this G5 has literally been run over by a car. I have it in a GEN case, the whole phone is bent, but everything works perfectly, almost a year after being run over! The screen isn't even cracked!

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
