We’re not ready to call for some mass panic just yet, but the LG G5 seems to be causing a lot of issues for a lot of people. A big thread is brewing over on Reddit with people talking about the problems they’ve been experiencing.

Some have GPS failures, others’ speakers are going out, power buttons are shutting down, and gaps are being noticed. Some are even having to replace LG’s various friends, including the Cam Plus module. There are a ton of different issues that people are having, though none seem to be particularly trendy.

For what it’s worth, it sounds like LG is at least handling things greatly on the customer service side of things. Replacements aren’t taking forever, with some folks having gone through as many as 3 to 6 devices in the warranty and repair process.

But it sounds like there are a whole lot of devices which didn’t exactly come off the presses in tip top shape, and it’s not wrong to be concerned about a smattering of reports about that coming in. That said, we’re going to hit LG up to see if there are any widespread LG G5 issues or whether it’s just a case of the vocal minority being as loud as they’ve always been. Are you experiencing the same problem that these folks are?
