Thanks! This was the link that scared me

it says "real" batteries have an indent and "fake" don't.

the replacebase look "fake"

that said, the 'about' on replacebase suggests they looked for quality spares from OEM but a lot of the reviews on amazon for replacement batteries were poor, maybe they're fake OEMS?

much appreciated as the reason I got the lg g5 was because it was the fastest phone with replaceable battery. My previous phone was samsung galaxy note 2 and was easy to buy an anker or official one

I liked the look of them but then researching fake batteries showed their batteries look the same as the other dodgy ones other places sell. So some reviews say doesn't hold charge well or get a not recognised error from third party ones. Hence why I leant towards polarcell from germany.But if this is good this was my original first choice. They are on ebay too.

Do I need a USB-C to USB connector? And someone mentioned above switching the PC's audio output to USB, how do I do that?Thanks.


Get a usb to usb c cable should work on a regular PC.
My tablet has a USBC so I use a USBC to USBC cable which is a standard usb 3 spec, so it should work regardless of plug type.
If you plug it in it will.show as a usb hub device.
When you plug in headphones then it will show an additional spdif device and will be able to output audio.
When I tried this on my windows 10 decide for the first time it switched audio to the DAC immediately without drivers or further prompting.
If yours doesn't then go to audio decides and swap it over from there.

Has anyone successfully connected this to a Samsung s8?


I would avoid getting this as a possible audio improvement for a phone, especially if your use case is to be used with ambient noise such as outside. This is where its benefits will not be apparent. If you need to drive your headphones and want an improvement in quality or dislike the sound signiture of your headphones, then I recommend software with an graphic equaliser or a headphone amplifier.

Also the s8 has decent audio output anyway. It may be that a equaliser fixes 90% of your requirements for a DAC.

Also it may not even work with your s8. Mine doesn't work with my pc. Or indeed my phone when connected via USB C. Only when directly plugged in ( there is an additional set of pins for connected devices seperate to the usb c connections which are passed through .. I think that's what it's using )

Xenon flash on the complete opposite end of the phone might have been awkward and probably would have caused issues - not least that your hand would often get in the way of the flash. I reckon xenon was proposed initially but that they knocked it on the head at some point in the early development stages.

Personally I never use xenon even on my proper camera. If the lighting isn't right then I just don't take the picture - not least because I feel self-conscious firing intense light into people's faces. Never used it on the Lumia 1020 for example. For portraits I tend to just knock the shutter speed down and hold the camera more steadily - it tends to create nicer tones than a xenon flash anyway. I don't really bother taking photos of scenes in low light with a lot of movement, except maybe the odd video.

This is a decent price for the grip. It's cheaper in Cex by 98p though, and a lot of stores seem to have them. Better warranty too, and most I've seen look like they are brand new units that have been traded in as part of a contract bundle.

Sucks. I haven't had this issue after a few weeks of use so this must be luck of the draw or some kind of incompatibility with your router.

You'll have to transfer the number to another network (a free other than 3 operator sim) will work. Buy phone and then transfer number from the free sim (on another network) when you buy. That's what I had to do anyway when I was on ee and wanted another ee deal but have the same number. It may have changed but I'd assume it's still the same.

I've used the G5 for a few days now and haven't really found anything … I've used the G5 for a few days now and haven't really found anything particularly wrong with it. I think it had the misfortune of being released shortly after the S7 and comparisons have naturally been drawn. Every negative review seems to end with "yeah it's good, but Galaxy S7," without really giving a clear explanation on why the S7 is better. Overall I don't really buy it. Some reviews have complained that the build quality isn't on par with Samsung, and I have to agree that the S7 does have a slightly more premium feel to it that only Apple can match. However if I hold it in my hand it definitely feels like a flagship phone to me. Also, it's personal preference but I think the S7/edge are smudgefests. The screens always look messy. On top of that I'm much happier with the internal hardware of the G5 over the S7's exxynos. I haven't had any bootloops however I did have an issue with the notification bar disappearing. I put this down to the gazillion updates I had to perform out of the box and conflicts with apps. If you do get the G5 I'd recommend doing a full reset after performing all updates. Oh, and since Three sell all their phones unlocked you can update to Nougat through LG's software (it doesn't appear to be OTA yet). Other than that one issue it's been plain sailing. Apps don't crash, the OS never hangs, and I can have multiple windows open in the background without an issue. In general use it absolutely flies and is faster than anything I've used before.Battery life has been fine for me. It definitely drains quicker with the Hi-Fi Plus module attached, but without it it's better than my 5X was. To give you an idea, it's now 10:45 and so far I've watched over an hour of netflix and browsed the internet for another hour. So that's 2 hours of screen time and I'm down to 74%.



​ thanks for the response, very informative. Still in two minds as to whether the upgrade is worth it; better CPU and extra gig of ram, dunno if it's much of an upgrade over the G4. I'll have to hit some comparison sites! cheers

I've received a couple of phones from currys ebay labelled as stock … I've received a couple of phones from currys ebay labelled as stock repair and neither caused any trouble. TBH condition and performance wise they were every bit as good as 'open box' ones. I suspect (but cannot confirm) that 'stock repair' is a catch-all for all sorts of things. As the phone only launched in March 2016 I doubt it was due to faulty hardware caused through wear and tear. More likely to be software related with either no fault found or a reflashed OS. The one thing you don't want is an intermittent fault that does not become immediately apparent, although you do have the currys ebay 12 month guarantee as a fall back. If the phone looks mint i personally would keep the phone but if it's going to gnaw away at the back of your brain, then immediately return it for a refund. Terrific phone for £279 though.


Thanks for the reply - that reassures me a bit.
Phone looks faultless cosmetically. I've looked up the manufacture date based on the IEMI and it's saying it was manufactured 13th april 16. That seems a long time ago if it had say a months use (can't imagine it had more given immaculate external condition). After all, most retailers don't want to have lots of fast-depreciating £500 items in stock.

Agree re intermittent fault or indeed if it was a hardware fault and knowhow have had it all in bits i doubt they have the knowledge and clinical standards of cleanliness of LG.

I've emailed CurrysEbay asking if it's been repaired as it wasn't described as such in the listing.

Yes, I'm probably overthinking it. Need to weigh up if it'll gnaw away or I can forget it's history...

I've received a couple of phones from currys ebay labelled as stock repair and neither caused any trouble. TBH condition and performance wise they were every bit as good as 'open box' ones. I suspect (but cannot confirm) that 'stock repair' is a catch-all for all sorts of things. As the phone only launched in March 2016 I doubt it was due to faulty hardware caused through wear and tear. More likely to be software related with either no fault found or a reflashed OS. The one thing you don't want is an intermittent fault that does not become immediately apparent, although you do have the currys ebay 12 month guarantee as a fall back. If the phone looks mint i personally would keep the phone but if it's going to gnaw away at the back of your brain, then immediately return it for a refund. Terrific phone for £279 though.

The warranty on my returned G4 was 12 months so I assumed it was the same for the G5. Anyone confirm?

I have purchased from this seller twice and will never again after having a massive amount of trouble getting a refund for a faulty item. I had to go through the ebay resolution center who issued me with the refund directly. These guys were very unproffessional from my experience and i would wholeheartedly discourage anybody from risking the terrible customer service.

Is this different to the Argos deal at £399



Yes - this is a slightly inferior version of the G5 - less RAM, worse CPU and GPU. This also doesn't have the camera module.
