If you look at the G5 as a powerful smartphone with some added functionality and a pretty good set of cameras, you might start to see it as a smart investment. Looking at it this way, the modularity is more of a bonus; you’ll always have the option to take advantage of any modules that come along in the future, and in the meantime, you have the freedom to change the battery.

Inexpensive, latest Android software, decent camera

LG K8

from PC Magazine (about 1 month ago)

The LG Phoenix 2 offers reasonable performance, a 720p display, the latest software, and a decent camera for just $100. It isn't as powerful as the equally affordable Zmax 2, but it has a better camera.

A middling Moto G rival

LG K8

from Expert Reviews (about 1 month ago)

The LG K8 does a pretty decent job of matching the 3rd Gen Moto G's speed, but when both phones are now exactly the same price, the Moto G leaps ahead with its superior display and camera and longer-lasting battery.

Stilted performance, basic stylus

LG Stylus 2

from Recombu (about 1 month ago)

The LG Stylus 2 is a weird beast. It's essentially a cut-price Galaxy Note handset, but with limited performance, a very basic stylus experience and a low-res screen. If it was only £150 then some of those flaws could perhaps be forgiven, but at £250 it's overpriced and disappointing. He... More

The LG Stylus 2 is a weird beast. It's essentially a cut-price Galaxy Note handset, but with limited performance, a very basic stylus experience and a low-res screen. If it was only £150 then some of those flaws could perhaps be forgiven, but at £250 it's overpriced and disappointing. Here's hoping that the Stylus 2 Plus can correct the Stylus 2's mistakes and step up as a proper Galaxy Note rival instead.

Buy it for the camera, not the modules

LG G5

from The Indian Express (about 1 month ago)

This is not a full review, considering that I have not really played around with an extra module. But from what I have seen the LG G5 is a great flagship phone even without the modules. I would buy this just for the camera. I wouldn’t buy this for the modules, not yet.

A flagship contender that needs some spit and polish

The LG G5 is priced like a true flagship, and on paper, is also built like one. Unfortunately, reality paints a different picture. The phone holds a lot of promise.

The LG G5 is priced like a true flagship, and on paper, is also built like one. Unfortunately, reality paints a different picture. The phone holds a lot of promise. It’s rare to find a phone that performs this well and offers so much. If only LG had taken the trouble to really work on the fit and finish of the device and put some more thought into their “primer,” this would have been a real contender for the flagship throne.

Many people find LG’s G5 as a risky attempt because of its striking changes from last year’s model. Undoubtedly, there is something charming about this design and additional modules. We can’t be sure though how customers will receive these novelties. There is no doubt that the fans of smartphone photography will be happy to find the camera module, bringing hardware buttons and extra battery, in the box.

Excellent camera, modular design

LG G5

from Brighthand (about 1 month ago)

The LG G5 is one of the most powerful smartphones on the market. Its camera and innovative modular design are appealing, as is its powerful and stable chipset.

Screen bit too dark, performance just sufficient

LG X Screen

from AndroidPIT (about 1 month ago)

The LG X Screen would be a fairly ordinary mid-range smartphone if it weren't for the second screen. The X Screen doesn't perform all that well but the second screen does prove to be useful especially with recently used apps. It's also light-weight and convenient.

The Stylo 2 corrects some of the issues plaguing its predecessor. The phone is slim, light, attractive, and well made. It carries over the processor, but improves the memory, storage, and camera in big ways. The display isn't the best I've seen, but it suffices. Battery life is absolutely killer, but the phone suffers a bit from network and calling issues.

Worst phone ever put in place of my hand.

LG Joy

(about 1 month ago)

The battery dies so quick, even when the screen is off, it's generally a slow phone, all the apps crash and the camera is the worst. Trading it for an iPhone.

Unless you're used to iphone or Samsung galaxy this is a perfect little smartphone. Great call quality, good screen, battery life, can't complain as I don't use my phone as a laptop replacement. It's perfect

Works well, has enough stuff, 3G, web. If your not putting your nose into a smart phone every 10 seconds this is the phone for you. I see people banging on there phone all the time like they have nothing else to do. Most have zero personality so smart phones replace that part of there liefs. I have plenty to do without chatting with someone else all day and making my life tolerable. I'm 23 and hate smart phones, I have one but use my LG 441 more, one handed use is perfect. Get one you might have a personality after all. If your a democrat you have no idea what I just said and go back to your cave.

BEST of mine

LG KF600

I fell in love with this phone/ as it reflects my optimal user style - the screen is interactive (I'm highly visual) + it's very comfortable to hold & type too. Extremely user-friendly. It's really sad I can't find a new one like that again!

The phone was advertised on other sites as having a digital compass, which is a basic requirement for a smartphone. It appears there is confusion as to whether the phone does or doesn't have a digital compass. LG technical staff I've talked to claim not to know what a digital compass is! The phone is totally frustrating. I would not have bought it if I had known it wouldn't work properly. Don't touch it with a bargepole.

Disappointed

LG 441G

My son gets many random texts and calls all the time, but the screen only shows "new message". You have to open it to find out it's spam, which of course deducts minutes. Haven't found a block option either to cut back on the spam.

My carrier is Verizon, bought phone new. 16 days later screen was frozen and glitching non responsive, I had to pull the battery to get it going again. 18 days later and the phone shut off in between a call, again screen went black and was non responsive, had to pull battery to get going again. Verizon customer service said software issues and has to get replaced with Verizon warranty "refurbished"! 19 days later, phone won't turn on at all, completely dead. Very unhappy with phone and carrier! I paid for a new phone, not for testing purposes! Oh and one last thing, phone doesn't come with ear buds!

Maybe it's because I didn't have a choice in what phone to get. Maybe it's because I absolutely LOVED my old phone (HTC One S) and didn't want to get rid of it. Or maybe it's because the phone really is as annoying as I think it is. The bottom line is, I hate it. Although some people might like the larger screen, I find it's too big to hold comfortably. I tend to keep my cell in my back pocket. Can't do that with this one as it's too big. And it's heavy. Heavier WITHOUT a case than my last phone was WITH it's case (and since I have a habit of dropping my phone, I need a case, so now this big, heavy phone will be even bigger and heavier). What I like about it: the camera. What I don't like about it: pretty much everything else. Ease of navigation? Not there. Nothing is straightforward. You constantly have to search for what you want. I have had several phones from several different manufacturers before this one and I have never, EVER had problems with set up or learning/finding it's features. The battery life is not good either. Just setting the phone up with my preferences, it went from a full charge to 74%. Haven't listened to music, haven't played any games or downloaded anything and still it sucked back over 1/4 of the battery. I shudder to think how often I will have to charge the thing once I start to actually use it. Regrettably, I am stuck in a 2 year contract. I am literally counting down the days before I can get out of it and get a decent phone. (As of now, it's 716 days. It's going to be a long 2 years.)

Info & Contact

About LG

Few cell phone manufacturers have received as much attention as LG over the past several years, mainly because they keep coming out with great devices. LG is responsible in large part for turning cell phones into show phones, with sexy form factors, brushed metal fascias and functionality to back up the good looks.

LG is an enormous multinational corporation with 75 subsidiaries throughout the world, but their cell phone division has truly been one of their showpieces. You may be familiar with the “Shine Line” of phones that include a number of shiny flips and sliders that have racked up huge sales for carriers.

By 2005 LG was a Top 100 global brand. In addition to great cell phones, LG is the largest manufacturer of liquid crystal displays.

The company got its start in 1958 under the name GoldStar, making radios, TVs, refrigerators, washing machines and air conditioners.
