I'm in the market for a new phone and have seen good deals on both of these. Assuming the price is similar for both, is one better than the other? Main considerations for me are battery life, camera quality and general response speed, 3 areas my current phone infuriates me!

Thanks

I very much like my g5, feels great in the hand. Modular bits are kind of a waste, but do use the camera grip if out for the day. Battery is kind of average but usually gets through the day no problem, especially using greenify. Camera very happy with, and responsiveness seems great to me

I have a G5 and it is very fast, the screen is good and the camera is excellent.

I almost went for the P9 but the UI changes Huawei made was a bit too much for me, and their chips aren't as fast as the Snapdragon 820 used in the G5. I can make my battery last a day normally and I have a PowerBank on standby if I'm out for a long time.

if you go for the G5 (loved mine) - I highly recommend buying the extra battery and cradle - means you can always have a charged battery to hand and doubles as a charger and battery bank - great piece of kit for £20 and made the phone for me

I have the P9. Had to add Google Launcher to get the feel I wanted, plus a theme... but camera is awesome and the battery life is very good - you can power manage all apps to make it last a long time. Fast charge too (although USB-C).

Love my G5 esprecially screen quality. Only complaint is battery life so I have chargers wherever I go but yhese are now chesp enough. Loving the USB type C rapid charging.

LG G5. Battery life could be better but excellent phone other than that
#7
Have had both, the g5 has better audio, it's faster than the p9, the p9 has much better battery life per charge, build quality is much better on the p9. I prefer the g5 personally as audio is more important to me than the features of the p9.

​Actually the CPU in the P9 is quite bit faster than the Snapdragon 820. However the 820 has a much faster GPU.

I've owned both - P9 looks more premium; G5 is the better device overall - better camera with more flexible options, faster, better loudspeaker - already has Nougat. I also don't like Huawei's intrusive additions to the OS - lots of power management nags and faffing about to get around the complications things like their lockscreen amendments cause - such as some multimedia apps not showing playback content on the lockscreen.

I quite liked the P9 overall but the G5 lasted me longer and I still might pick another one up if I find one cheap enough; the P9 was cheap from O2 but I don't think I'd get another as it was all just a bit 'meh', aside from the very nice build quality.

G5 great phone. Mine seems to run at warp speed with Nougat installed. It was fast before but it just seems faster now. :)

Thanks all, good advice as always on here. I was leaning towards the P9 before but your comments have made me think twice. I'll look again at the G5.
#12
