I had a LG G5 for 15 months, it suddenly will not power on.  Fully charged, screen indicator and green charged light.  Power button does not work.  I followed troubleshooting, nothing.


Salesman at the store said its a known G5 problem.  I am on the hook for $400 for "hardware upgrade"

Naturally I do not truth salesmen.  Was he talking the truth of the LG G5 ?


Is there any Android phones to avoid buying ?

I found super cheap Nokia phones running Win 8.1.

iphones are too expensive and no option to add your own SD card, so I will not buy an iPhone.


Any advice, suggestions ?

What issue is the salesman referring to?


Is there a hardware issue?
