Ian, 04 Apr 2016Damn I like this phone but 5.5" is just too big. Now Im confused which phone I should buy now ... moreMan this is a great phone although you are stuck making the decision. Forget that half an inch and just go for it. The specs it provides are unbeatable.
Damn I like this phone but 5.5" is just too big. Now Im confused which phone I should buy now in april 2016. Im like between G4, Z3+ or galaxy S5. Only this phones in option. Can someone pls help me about choice which phone I should buy?
G4 - stopped me for 5.5 inch display
Z3+ - stopped me due to the overheating issue
S5 - boring ui and design
Here z3+ is my favorite but that overheating issue is problem but I'm not heavy user.
Anyway I will find your opinions helpfull and usefull so thanks anyone who answer on my problem. Cheers
harry , 04 Apr 2016My mistake (to my g4), I left charger over night and so after 100per cent full charger still a... moreOvercharging has nothing to do with knock-knock malfunction. I heard this issue with most of LG G4 users. Even I face it sometimes, may be 30% of the time, but I dont mind tapping it again. Not a big issue for me.
I upgraded to G4 (818N) from G2 the day it was brought in India and I was pretty happy about almost everything. But as soon as I upgraded to Marshmallow, my phone ran into battery issues, started charging too slow and started getting hot. I dont play mobile games but battery life became half.
Ran to service centers who took 7 days just to downgrade it to 5.1 back again. They claimed they replaced the motherboard but when I checked IMEI numbers, they were caught off gaurd. They still dont have any answer on why they kept my phone for 7 days. Battery and Hot issues resolved but still struggling with slow charge issue.
Horrible experience at LG service centers. My loyalty is going to change soon. Never going to buy LG phones again.
My mistake (to my g4), I left charger over night and so after 100per cent full charger still attached for 6hours and so I don't know if the damage has done because my g4 knock knock code malfunction in it. When my phone hibernated or on locked I cannot wake it up the screen by tapping it. Even I press the power button so to no avail. I have to remove the battery for me to restart my g4. Does it troubled with the overcharging of my phone? Anyone can help me pls? Right now what I did was to kept my screen open but putting brightness zero just not to go to sleep because I cannot wake it up again. Thanks for the help
Guys how is the g4 compared to the galaxy note 4? Cause in my country they're pretty much the same price .. I don't want to know about the specifications on paper or whatever I want to know from someone who has tried both and have experience
P.S I'm already using a power bank so I don't really care for battery life. Thanks :)
Guys ,, how is the g4 in comparison of the galaxy note 4? Cause here in my country they're pretty much the same price. P.S I don't care for battery life as I'm already going using a power bank
My G4 already upgrade to Marshmallow. The battery so far is ok. I text, check email and watch movie more then one hour. One day use is ok. The camera is great as my DSLR camera. So the camera setting look like DSLR camera setting. It is super.
I've had mine for about 6 weeks now. Only battery issues I've had are related to an app I downloaded.
I also have an H812 Canadian variant, and I have had zero issues with it, and the phone is even better with the Marshmallow update. I am not sure why Carlos is having issues (a few comments above), but my battery lasts way longer now than before. Although, I am not sure what he does with his. I use it as a phone, text, surf, and do some gaming, but not spending the day doing it all. My son just got rid of his Samsung S6 for this phone, and he feels that this phone is better. Its just up to everyones personal preference. One thing I hate reading in these forums are one word answers like Nope, or someone bashing the phone because they "really wanted" a iPhone, or s7, or some other one but decided to give it a try and it doesn't have certain features they are used to, or UI they find different.
My brother had the latest iPhone for a few weeks, it crashed, took it in and they couldn't even recover any info from it, so are all iphones garbage, or just his? So, if you read these forums, do not let what you read influence your purchase, ask at the dealer/service provider which phone seems to be more reliable, or had more complaints.
Youssef zamzam, 31 Mar 2016Thanks for the reply broSo far that's great plus I'm planning on getting a power bank for emer... moreIt's an issue that occurs (as far as I can tell) , to some devices that are upgraded from 5.1 to 6.0 through bridge mostly, but I cannot tell if some of them got an OTA Update. As far as I am concerned, this bootloop's cause is software. The first one , which was hardware related, was fixed through the new versions of the phone. But some issue occurs and I strongly believe it has to do with the update and LG's rom and drivers.
It occurs while trying to connect to many wifi's with low signal , and then try to switch to 4G Or 3G network. That happened to about 10 people here in Greece (a really small amount ) , and all of them had the same issue. I , nearly every day, switch wifi's and 4G , and nothing happened to me, so I believe is out of luck , and how the update "sits" on the phone. If we suppose that many million devices are sold (over 20mil. ) and 10K devices seemed to have this problem , the percentage is fairly small.
LG doesn't seem to work for a solution (yet), and me and some friends are trying to figure out what's going on with some devices.
Other that this peculiar thing, this phone is excellent all the way!
guys does the performance or battery life or any thing changes after a while? cause people been saying its all right in the first 2-4 weeks then it becomes a piece of crap? is it true? thanks.
Ashley, 31 Mar 2016Im planning to buy this phone this april first week..
Does the phone bootloop often ?
Does t... moreYou will only experience the hardware related bootloop if the device's first three starting serial number is the one from 505-509 (5 is the year of production and 05-09 are the months). Software bootloop if it is from 600-603, that is unconfirmed but hardware bootloop has been confirmed by LG, if you receive one of those then send it back.
P.S Ordered the device few days ago and about to receive it tomorrow. All the best
