32GB Unlocked LG G5 discounted by 32%, priced at $409.99 at eBay

The LG G5 has not sold as well as LG had hoped it would. The handset is up against very strong competition in the Samsung's Galaxy S7, and it doesn't appear as though the modular accessories have drawn buyers to the phone. Still, the LG G5 has the same specs as most 2016 flagship phones and is powered by the Snapdragon 820 SoC. It includes 4GB of RAM and is equipped with a 5.3-inch LCD screen offering a 1440 x 2560 resolution. A dual camera setup is found on back, and a 2800mAh battery is on board.

And now you can save $190 or 32% on the LG G5. A limited quantity of the handset is being sold through eBay for $409.99. So far, 130 units have been sold. The deal includes free standard shipping and expires in less than 48 hours. This is an unlocked GSM model which will work in the U.S. on both AT&T and T-Mobile. The phone comes with 32GB of internal storage with a 2TB capacity microSD slot.

If you're looking for a great deal on a current generation flagship, this could be your next phone. Order now and the LG G5 will be at your door between August 10th and August 15th. If interested, click on the sourcelink.

Only thing I like about LG phones. After like 2-3 months of getting sold for reg price, they are easily discounted by $150. Big W

I got it for $499@t-mobile and happy with the price. It's a lot cheaper than my s7 edge. :)

Phonearena forgot to add the Worst Phone of the Season title to LG G5's specs. Buy it, if you want a camera phone. Everything else G4 did better, and that wasn't great either.

You forgot to mention the G5 is 268% as powerful as the G4 (134k vs 50k in AnTuTu). The screen has a higher contrast ratio, more accurate color temperature and also gets intensely bright in outdoor mode at over 800 nits. The G5 charges from 0-100% about twice as fast at 1 hour 5 minutes vs 2 hours 7 minutes. It is also 2mm thinner than the G4.

Despite all that it still isn't a very good phone tho. I will say it ins't the worst and it is better than the G4

G5 has worse battery endurance than the Moto Z, it's white balance and color accuracy is so off the chart that I don't know where to start; even being that bright, its sunlight legibility is weaker than HTC 10. Loudspeaker loudness has decreased as well as a very very weak audio output through the jack. Oh and the G5 is a metal device that doesn't feel like metal. The chipset is good but the Android skin on the G5 is garbage. LG has only improved the camera a little, everything else has gone bad. Comparing it to other Tier-1 OEM flagships, it is by far the worst flagship of the season.

So if I want battery endurance I have to get the Moto Z but if I want Sunlight readability I need an HTC10, and if I want this...I need yet another android phone... So what we are saying here is that, the G5 is good if not great and to get 'better' you have to sacrifice something at some point...

No, you need some brains. Moto Z is superior in terms of sunlight legibility than the HTC 10 and is almost on par with Samsung flagships of the season; and I never said if you want endurance you should get it. If you want stellar endurance go for a S7 Edge Exynos version. I simply stated a fact that a Moto Z with 200 mAh less runs for a longer period of time than the G5. In terms of phones launched this half: LG G5

You are the one that brought up multiple phones. But lets look at the Moto Z cause I like that phone. Not using phonearena but gsm instead.. the display is about the same - gsm tested the screen to have: "has an average deltaE of 5.4, which isn't perfect but is above average regarding accuracy." As well the brightness in sunlight is aided by a perpixel tech, kinda like the 1520...meaning sunlight readability is great. Battery? No it doesn't. The LG had a testing of 7.5hrs in the web browsing with the Moto Z getting 6.25hrs. In fact it outdid it in all 3 battery endurance tests. So what are we really getting by choosing the Moto Z?

You're getting mods that work, and personally I find Phonearena's battery test more useful since it measures screen-on-time and with my apps and standby included i know I'll lose 1-2 hours from their result over the course of a day. Furthermore I don't know whether they tested the screen in vibrant mode or color accurate mode. I refer to GSMA reviews for sunlight legibility, audio charts and camera majorly. If you compare the G5 and the Moto Z and look at individual color charts, the Moto Z display is clearly superior. The Moto Z has superior call quality, as well as audio quality over the jack. The only thing LG does better is camera, the rest the Moto Z takes home.

You are about the only commenter here that would trust phonearena battery test over gsm... Not only that Techradar also found it to be ok. Actually doing better in the 90minute video test than the MotoZ "superior" you act like the G5 is monochromatic, the difference is negligible that the average user wont be able to see any difference. Also you can see gsm test for yourself and read the mode they tested it in. At the end of the day...the LG G5 is not a 'bad' phone, and would more than compete with the others. We could compare audio quality all you want...I think its still to early to get rid of the audio jack.

1+3, Sony X Performance, Moto Z, S7, HTC 10, Note7, Moto Z Force, S7 Edge. This is irrespective of price and UI preference, and since I will never go back to Touchwiz, for me I'll remove all the Galaxy devices from the list.

Nope! I won't own another LG until they get their boot loop fixed. Hell they won't even fix my damn phone without me paying for it. I bought a G5 new from them when it came out and two weeks ago it started rebooting randomly, then it got worse to where it had a static bar that went across the screen as it rebooted over and over. Now the phone won't even power up. Effing junk!! I have a POS phone I'm using until my note 7 comes in.

There's a thing called, "warranty." Or if you buy it from T-Mobile or Verizon then take it back to them to get it fix.

My LG EnV has boot loop issues years ago. I had it replaced 5x. My LG EnV 2 had boot loop issues before that. I vowed never to buy LG again and I gave them a chance with the Stylo. I bought that and regretted it too due to RAM and storage issues. I see they havent got their act together. SMH. I really wanted a V10 when it came out.
