We know how much you like to stream, ahem, "videos", and so cellular data is mega-important. Rate this thread to express how you think the LG G5's LTE performs. A higher rating indicates that it's fantastic: throughput is excellent and signal strength is top-notch.

Then, drop a comment if you have anything to add.

I watched everything from adult "instructional" videos to telecommunications instructional videos without any hint of poor performance. No issues as seen by me. This is an excellent phone.

well.. this would require measuring the g5 in comparison with all other phones with similar LTE capabilities.
so far i'm more than happy. sadly this phone has higher bandwidth in terms of internet than my home connection D:

for the carrier aggregation, the LG G5 is 2CA or 3CA ?
Because Snapdragon 820 is 3CA :
Downlink Features
3x20 MHz carrier aggregation

H860 has a problem regarding reception, switching SIM 1 to LTE reduces signal strength of SIM 2 which is on 2G. Bad receptions as compared to LG G4.

H850 tested on LTE 4G+, 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz wifi about 15 meter (3 walls) from router.

Overall, excellent reception on LTE and above average wifi reception and speed.

Compared to:
Honor 7: Much better wifi reception.
Honor 8: About same wifi reception (both excellent) and somewhat better LTE speed in same room.
Sony Xperia XZ: Sony wifi is not even in same class. Completely refused to find 5Ghz while only 11mbps on 2.4Ghz, while G5 had 65mbps on 2.4G and 150mbps (2/5 bars) on 5Ghz. LTE reception about the same.
