The phone is 'ok' - build quality is about par with what you would expect for £380 it cost at the time. The battery has stood up relatively well over time, although I am very careful with its management.
The fingerprint scanner has always been a little hit and miss and often it takes several attempts to 'wake the phone' - over time that has simply got worse. Over the past few weeks the phone gets hot and very sluggish and loses time and date. Sometimes it crashes and can only be recovered by removing the battery. After that it may work for a few days or hours before it all starts again. Factory resets don't seem to resolve the problem - even if you leave just the basic settings and no apps - so clearly the phone has a fault.
Despite being purchased from Amazon, the only option is to seek help from LG itself. After a two week wait for them to do anything, I emailed a manager and then got a call to arrange repair. Now here's the thing - for most of us the phone is quite important - to LG that isn't the case. I have to drive somewhere to deposit the phone in some locker (in my case 9 miles away). LG will then pick it up and take it somewhere for repair - apparently up to 14 days later it will be returned to the locker for me to drive to to collect.
I cant see this as a responsible or interested supplier - but one which makes the warranty process difficult to put you off using it, or as cheap as possible for them.
If only they simply made the product reliable!
Screen - A nice, crisp screen with vivid colours. Not a match for the Super AMOLED screens in Samsung's but for LCD, very high quality indeed. The always on display is a good feature which quickly allows you to check the time and see if you have any notifications. It comes with a minimal battery penalty and so I would say is worth having. My only negative with the screen is that it occasionally my screen seems to suffer from temporary burn down the sides in after using the keyboard. It seems to last a little while then fade away, most noticeable when you are on a dark screen.
Cameras - In good lighting conditions, all three cameras are very good. The wide angle lens works very well and comes in handy very frequently, particularly when taking photos of large objects or in confined spaces. It doesn't capture in as high quality as the main camera but it is still to a high standard. It's a very useful feature that I wish more phones would adopt! The standard camera takes excellent photos and the selfie camera can take good quality photos too. In low level lighting, the cameras sometimes seem to struggle to focus, but the results are often acceptable.
Performance - Operates smoothly, with little lag. Plenty of power design having a less powerful processor than the standard G5. I do a fair bit of multitasking and it handles it all very well.
UI - LG's UI seems to be fairly lightweight and a lot less intrusive than Samsung's UI, though not as clean as Sony's. Thankfully LG released an update that allowed you to have an app tray as opposed to just having all your apps on the home page, which is a much messier layout. This phone can currently be updated to Android 7.0. Your guess is as good as mine as to whether it will get 8.0. I would hope so, but I'm not going to hold my breath.
Design - Metal body feels nice and the screen which curves at the top looks well designed. The finger print scanner is well positioned on the back and is close to where your finger naturally falls. The modular aspect of the phone is a complete waste of time and there are no bits that are worth having. What might please a lot of people is that the battery is replaceable as this phone isn't a sealed unit like a lot of today's higher end phones. The downside of this is that it isn't waterproof like a lot of it's competitors.
Battery - Fairly poor. Often struggle to get a day out of it, though I do watch videos and browse the web a fair bit. However, I was comfortably getting a day out of my Sony Z3. Now I charge my phone midday to make sure that it will last to the end of the day.
Overall, I'm pleased with the phone. The cameras perform well the majority of the time and features such as the wide angle lens are very useful. The overall performance of the phone is good, there are just a few little problems here and there but they aren't troublesome enough to make me dislike the phone.
The biggest issue with this phone is that at the time of writing now, the LG G6 is only about £60 more. For that difference, it is probably worth spending the extra to get the more powerful and newer G6. It will be supported for longer, is waterproof, better rated camera and a better screen. However, if your budget doesn't allow for it, this is still a very good phone.
I easily get a day's usage from the battery, but generally charge overnight out of habit. You can squeeze a couple of days if you switch some stuff off and don't spend all day on it (I typically listen to the radio and local ogg/mp3 for about 4 hours a day, plus light internet/twitter usage).
I've not noticed any overheating yet, but don't use it for games, so perhaps that's why. This is the first phone I've had with fast charge and it does charge fast!
The sound and signal quality are great and I've not noticed any software lags. The screen is crisp, clear and bright. Some apps do kick the home app out of memory, meaning there can be a fraction of a second delay when you return to the home screen, but it doesn't happen very often and it's not really a problem to be honest. The phone is quite heavy, which I like, because you always know it's there (my previous phone was a Desire Z which is about the same weight).
This is an unlocked/unbundled phone, so not tied into any mobile provider, meaning the amount of pre-installed junk is relatively small - there are a few LG apps that continually run, which I find infuriating (e.g. I can't disable the pre-installed email/exchange app, LG Air Drive, which I'll never use), but you can disable some of the others (LG Friends Manager). The running ones don't appear to use to too much battery or data. There are some other LG apps running, which aren't that obvious to the user, but I will probably disable them once I get root.
I've always used and preferred Android, but work force me to use an iPhone 5s, so I've had a few months to compare the two devices. I'm surprised how clunky and inefficient IOS feels compared to modern Android. Also, taking the boxy, featureless iToy slab out in public is almost embarrassing, when I should be showing off the feature-packed and speedy LG to everyone!
The last O/S update it received was Android 7.0, from 1st April 2017, so LG are keeping it relatively up-to-date.
