Has anyone successfully gotten the LG G5 to read text messages out loud

I cannot get it to read the text messages out loud.

I know the settings that are supposed to make this work - they don't!

It should be:


- Sound & Notification

- - Message/call voice notifications - Read caller info and messages out loud ON

- - - Calls - Read caller info out loud (ON or OFF should be ok. I want this OFF, but I have tried it both ways)

- - - Messages - Read sender info out loud ON

- - - - Read messages - Read messages out loud ON

[Note: You can reach the same Message/Call voice notifications menu tree starting from Settings - Accessibility - Vision, but it really is the same menu, changing the settings from either menu changes the same settings as seen both ways.]

I would really be a buyer if the LG G5 SE would be sold in North America with the corresponding LTE bands.
The better price-point would definitely attract myself and others that do not necessarily need an SD 820 but are satisfied with the phone and the features.

Phablet Phase?

I tend to prefer phablets over other smaller phones, the screen is a little on the small side, a 5.7 inch screen would have me jump at it, LG could also cater to the two kinds of users by doing so
I guess that's why we have choices. If you want a 5.7 inch phone, they are available. I don't want a phone that big. I've always said 5.3 is a sweet spot. So I guess we can both be happy, I can get my 5.3 in phone and you can go find a 5.7 in phone.
LG certainly makes phones like that, such as the new V10.
I like what LG is doing with the G5, and the G3 and G4 were definitely great phones. I can guarantee the G5 will as well, and I did get a chance to look at the V10 as well, the V10 is nice but the hatch for the battery is looking good as is the build ...

Removable Battery

I'm not sure if everyone really understands the simple logic and common sense in regards to removable batteries. People can make excuses for manufacturers eliminating them and for the most part, will rely totally on the sale's pitches that manufacturers use to validate such practice. The bottom line is this:

Regardless of price or premium status, the battery is the weakest link across the board. I have contended all along that a premium device should not be rendered useless just because of a battery issue. Thanks to the industry, it has slowly groomed the consumers to "Accept" the inevitable. What this has done, is add an additional 36 billion dollars in service for handsets within the industry. Are we really this dependant on service cen...
I agree with you 100%. The G5 certainly looks like an impressive device. And they beat everyone to market with the ability to attach accessories (something we should have had a decade ago). Well done, LG.
