I want to buy this phone.is there any risk to buy this phone.i heard about bootloop problem.can anyone confirm me that which version or manufacturing date i should follow to buy this phone.

May I got GALAXY S7 or Note 6 ( just because of its camera and hardware) next year as I always buy phone after a year of it release because of two things firstly because after year price drops down almost 25-50%, secondly I can figure out easily if there is some manufacturing defect in device (like first batch of LG brand always has) ,or any Cons/issues that have encountered to owners in that particular year. and example is in front of you LG G3 has Chassis cracking issue, and now LG G4 has Boot loop issue.GOD Bless you all owners of LG Smartphones.I hope and I pray LG G5 may live longer without any issues...
So right now I am considering LG G4 (It is really solide phone never breaks easily i have watched its test,but the major boot loop issue and its camera lacks in video department ois wobbly effect,Battery department), I have disregard Z3 (Because of its CAMERA PINK dot issue),Z5 compact, XPERIA Z5 regular ( SD 810 heating scares me),I was considering Nexus 6p but AMOLED is deal breaker for me (I will be ok with 32-64 GB internal memory + USB OTG support if there is no SD card Slot),Nexus 5X (but it is also from LG (just kidding)),I really messed up by all these brands.So help me dear... :)

Note 5 screen is amazing too but premium is extremly good, for performance both are excellent but sony ui is lighter and you feel its faster,about camera z5p resolve more detalis in center due to much higher resolution but note5 had edge to edge sharpnes,
Note 5 heat up less than z5, it takes more time for note 5 to heat up.
For battery both are very good but note has a little advantage here,
So you can consider note5 too

man of war, 26 May 2016Your welcome ^_^. Yeah i agree with you bro, everyone expect best camera quality from sony,... moreAny how I am not that person who just follows numbers.... I just want real life best performance in terms of battery, speed, camera, built quality, heat efficient,so which one would you recommend any phone from any brand.

Best phone super value for money! No flaw. Even running on Mashmallow! Why I think it's the Best phone out there!
1: Fast and speedy
2: Amazing camera with super quick focus thanks to the laser focus
3: Mashmallow (Even my S5 and Sony Z3 still on loliipop)
4: Battery is good after update last the whole day
5: LG knock to unlock and lock is quite handy

7: Super sharp screen
8: SD card and removable battery
9: Only LG has a radio function these days
10: Not so much garbages bloatware like Samsung or HTC
Is the bootloop issue still a problem even on marshmallow? And should I buy this phone over the Nexus 5x?

MAN OF PEACE, 26 May 2016Thanks for your compliment, so from you opinion I understand that Z3 heats up less than Z5 and... moreYour welcome ^_^. Yeah i agree with you bro, everyone expect best camera quality from sony, and sony have no excuse for its weaker performance in this regard,on z5 you see enormus detalis but not in all four corners,
About screen what you said is true, i think 1080p is enough,but as you know people follow numbers,so a 4k or 2k screen attract them,like lg g3. Which has terrible screen but 2k resolution
ImpulseGT, 24 May 2016Wait a second, the box says 1.1 in brackets on the bottom, im a bit confusedIs OTA updates comes in g4 regularly?? Monthly security patches + any performances enhancement updates?
Thanks for your compliment, so from you opinion I understand that Z3 heats up less than Z5 and Z5 heats up less than LG G4...
I don't know the purpose of using 2K resolution on 5.5'' display in LG G4 and now Samsung is follow suit and ruin the battery life and performance (GS6), To me 1080p is enough for 6'' display,
infect my laptop has 1080p 17'' screen and I don't have any problem of ppi.
Seriously guys learn from SONY they have made 3 variants of their flagships one with 4.7'' 720p (Z5c),second with 5.2'' 1080p and third with 5.5'' 2160p (Z5p) it up to the personal preference which one them he/she wants.the only thing where SONY is behind to other brands is Camera quality, other brands also use SONY camera sensors but I don't know why XPERIA Cameras are less sharp and vibrant than that of Samsung. By the thanks for help.

I am going to replace my old SIM Card which I cut from normal to micro to make sure its not that, some people have said that can be a problem.
MAN OF PEACE, 25 May 2016Hi I was going to buy LG G4 but now I am reconsidering my decision bcz of so many issues I don... moreLike your name "MAN OF PEACE" directly opposite if mine,
I understand your concern, my region is hot too but i use my digital camera mostly(wx300), my z5p heat up while using camera but mostly when taking 4k videos,if you use your camera in moderate way it wont be a problem, and about quality z5 is truly good,
One thing that surprised me was the phone's speed while it was hot, you know when i used g3 and g4 when they became hot(which happened much sooner than z5) the performance decreased dramatically, but i didnt face this problem, now my phone is hot because i have been using it for a long time,but still i can write this message without any issue,but on g3,4 i was truly unable to write well so dont worry about performance
But z3 produce less heat
M.S.Y, 25 May 2016I would say Z3+ is not good option due to SD 810 Heating.... I would recommend Z3, Instead of Z3+.he said lg g4 or note 4,these phones have big screens
z3+ z3 have smaller screens
he may wants phones with big screens only.
[deleted post]Hi I was going to buy LG G4 but now I am reconsidering my decision bcz of so many issues I don't Samsung much due to their AMOLED burn in problem and touchwiz the onlt thing I like in Samsung is its camera , I am big fan of SONY,due to its UI,Display,Battery,Performance,Design,now I want to buy Z3 or Z5 ,
but two thing bothers me a lot in both of them....
Firstly the Heating issue while using camera,it force close camera it self after heating up and it heats up using camera for taking photos (I use camera for extended period and live in hotter climate region)
Secondly the camera quality
I know it is rectified in Z5 to some extent but I think along with using of dual heat pipes SONY has also done some heavey Throttling which cause performance degrading...
So what do say in this regard "MAN OF WAR"
M.S.Y, 25 May 2016I would say Z3+ is not good option due to SD 810 Heating.... I would recommend Z3, Instead of Z3+.I know what you mean,but i have z5p with sd810, and it heats up much much less than g3 with sd801 and g4 with 808,and my phone is on lollipop,and sony adressed this issue in z3+ too
man of war, 25 May 2016Put note 4 as your first option and exclude g4 completly, put z3+ as your second optionI would say Z3+ is not good option due to SD 810 Heating.... I would recommend Z3, Instead of Z3+.
