bad news guys .. lg just killed the G4 ... they left the device only running android 6.0 . no intention updating it to nougat .. Italian web pages have news about it ... they are rolling out really slow the update for g5 so they can skip the G4... so bad that they even preferred to update a stylus 2 rather than a flagship but ... for me it is simply that they don't want room for comparations it is not a fast phone but has an excellent camera and featurs that they dropped during generations battery G6 and screen size G5 5.3 vs 5.5 on g4 anyway .... ux 4.0 looks ok for me but I eman the nougat is future proof and has a boost in performance regarding the vulkan api . they are s...kers
Bought mine July 2015.
Stuck on boot-up on 3 occasions. Service centre changed the motherboard each time with total data loss. Last replacement was in Feb 2017.
Tech support don't even know the cause of failure. Simply replacing motherboard without finding cause of failure will not fix the real fault.
The device also frequently overheats while in use.
My next phones shall never ever be another LG.
Mir, 25 Feb 2017hi folks , OMG no i ordered is 1 day ago , its on its way , no way to cancel it from where i p... moreSorry but 245 CAD seems really low for a G4, it's not brand new, is it? I'm guessing used or refurbished. Or it's already bootlooped, been repaired under warrenty and now the owner is selling it.
It's 2017 the only phones from 2015 I'd buy today would be the Samsung Note 5 or Edge+. Everything else would be a no go.
I have had bad experiences with the LG G4 since I purchased it last November 2015: it heats up quite frequently, and it was too warm that it is uncomfortable to use. Had it checked within two months with the service center and they replaced the motherboard, but still same issue. By March 2016, they couldn't figure out why it was heating up and had to replace the unit: still heats up occasionally but I bought a casing instead so that I wouldn't have to deal with the heat on my hands (I am not sure if that was really a good decision though). Last Friday, 24 February 2017, my phone just conked out. It cannot be charged as well, and no indication of life whatsoever. I went to the service center and they said they have to replace the motherboard (same issue again!) and what really frustrates me is that all files cannot be retrieved anymore. I know that is also a fault on my part: I haven't backed up my holiday photos yet in the cloud nor in an external drive. My cousin in NZ has these same issues with the same unit (she also bought last 2015). I can say we are both traumatized with the issues of LG G4 and are not keen on buying from the same brand again.
KingLion, 26 Feb 2017Hello, the bootloop issue is eliminated on phones manufactured after November 2015. To check t... moreYes, but the best way to check when your phone is produce is via this link: https://imeidata.net/warranty/lg .Just enter IMEI from your phone. All the phones from 2016 should be ok. My girlfriend has bought one from October 2016 and she is very very satisfied with LG G4.

To check the manufacturing date, just look at the first 3 digits of the serial number (year/month in YMM format. For example 603; 6 = 2016; 03 = March).

There is thread on XDA about it - https://forum.xda-developers.com/g4/help/g4-stuck-dialing-misses-calls-t3204109/page3#post71176410
Anyone here struggle with this issue here? Any fixes or suggestions?
My phone is almost 2yr old with serial start 504... Still no lag and hanging and reboot does it get bootloop or not my model is F500s korean
Anonymous, 24 Feb 2017I think that 7.0 îs gonna hit the G4 because IT can handle IT with no problem But the device compatibility with 7.0 don't means a sure send through OTA.
a once a great phone plagued by bootloader issue. It's really sad because I won't ever buy it again and if i did it'd be a roulette coz you never know which one has badly soldered motherboard.
