Well this really sucks. I've been telling people for a long time that my G5 has been the best phone I've ever had...a true powerhouse. Then came the Nougat update. Since then it's been nothing but problems. I called Verizon, LG (useless), and Google. All said 'try a factory data reset, that should fix everything'. Yeah, right. So after the Ohhhhhhh-so-painful FDR, I still have all the same problems. When plugging in the oem or third party fast chargers (I have two of each), the notifications will simultaneously say "slow charging" and either "charging" or "fast charging" at the same time. Unplugging and reconnecting will fix it every time. Also, I'm getting ghost images when changing screens...I can still see a shadow of the previous screen which eventually fades away. These are both just minor annoyances, but still weren't there before. But also, my NAV appears to have a hard time keeping track of where I am. More annoying. But the biggie is that I can no longer use any of my many Bluetooth headsets for phone calls. You just can't have a Bluetooth conversation anymore. Streaming audio is fine. But calls aren't doable. That's a problem. Since I already tried an FDR to no avail, Verizon is going to send me a new phone. All I can say is if it comes with Marshmallow, I'm leaving it that way. Any benefits that Nougat brought are far outweighed by the problems. I'll wait until they fix it, maybe then. Anybody else been so plagued by this update?

I have the same problem.. I have to charge and re-start the phone to make the phone "charging" otherwise it is intermittently connected and disconnected.. I've done factory reset and didn't work out also.. I guess getting a new replacement from T-mobile is the option here.

I got the new phone that Verizon overnighted to me and got it all set up. It thankfully came loaded with marshmallow and is working fine, but keeps prompting me to install Nougat. I'm going to keep postponing the update for now to give them a chance to work the bugs out. Is there anybody out there who has installed the update on their Verizon G5 without any problems after?

You should report it. They won't fix something if only a couple people report the problem. They sent me a new phone and I've managed to defer the 7.0 update for over a week now. It prompts me everyday, but I just say later! I'll wait awhile to see if they fix it. The unbearable Bluetooth call quality was just totally unacceptable.

Nougat?
My G5 is still on Marshmallow, and does not see that there is any update to Nougat available. So what are you all talking about?

What carrier are you with? I'm on Verizon, so maybe not all carriers have it yet. Or maybe you're one of the lucky ones who wasn't randomly chosen to be a guinea pig and find all the bugs and glitches. ☺

I'm on Verizon.

This is a Verizon LG G5 forum. Are those posting here WRT Nougat posting in the wrong place?

Me, totally problem free. No problems of any kind but it did fix one bug, I had an app that wouldn't run in Marshmallow and it's back working normally again with Nougat, who knows why?

I have the G5 on Verizon and am fully updated. The only problem I've had is with storage space. 85% full and I'm lagging frequently. I've deleted as much as I can, to no avail. I can't seem to get anything successfully moved to the SD card, so I'm not sure of its purpose.
