I bought a LG G4 Dual 6 months back and was working fine, but then now phone suddenly went to boot loop mode and was over heating when plugged for charging. There are thousands or similar or rather same complaints registered in various forums over internet. Same was the case with my local LG authorized service center LG G3 and G4 models were piled up with similar complaints for replacement and repair.
I found in some of the forums that LG accepted there is hardware complaint in LG G4 models even then they have not recalled the models having complaints. If this happens after warranty period need to pay another 250 EUR / 20000 INR (as quoted from LG service center) to get tit repaired. I request all not to buy or recommend LG G4 or any other LG phones .
Should I purchase LG G4 dual or Samsung Note 4? I previously owned an LG G2 which I loved due to the back buttons, good battery life and other features. I like the G4 but am concerned about battery life and the curved design as it is not very attractive. Overall I prefer LG over Samsung, but I also like the Note 4 due to better battery life, and the S-Pen. I will mainly use the phone for photos, social media, documents, and occasionally watching episodes.

chjp, 17 Apr 2016I am sorry I don't understand what you are trying to say. Could you please repeat in more deta... moreI used many LG products and phones. I changed my G3 to G4 dual in december 2015. As soon as I started using this phone, my hands started itching and aching. I now have pain in my hands and fingers. Someone said I might be alergic to the metal frame of the phone. I tried 5 different cases but didn't help much. That's why I'm asking if anybody else experienced such a problem. I have an appointment to the doctor tomorrow for an alergy test. I hope I'll find a solution because I love my G4 and don't want to change it.
i bought this great phone used it for couple of months now. here is what i like about it,
1. curved back. great to hold in hand.
2. the front glass is also slightly curved feels good keeping on my cheeks during a call.
3. removable battery and good battery life.
4. expandable memory.
5. quad HD display.
6. great camera. i like the feature of capturing selfi with motion detection of my palm folding.
this is not the end... the pros goes on.. but the above is what i like the most.
i updated to marshmallow recently.. my phone got multiple software issues!!!! wifi not working etc.. marshmallow is great but not great for me. guys working on updates please do something about it!!
snapdragon 808 is not great for gaming... i played high end games... its great.. but not an awesome one.. so gaming freaks if you want the best gaming phone go for something else.. maybe snapdragon 820 with better graphics gpu.. or atom processor etc..
the icons looks very classic... i dont like it... its not a big deal.. u can change themes, skins or use launchers

Angry Mobile Nerd, 16 Apr 2016You say "reset" three times fast. If it doesn't work the first time, try again.I am sorry I don't understand what you are trying to say. Could you please repeat in more details? Thanks.
I repeat my earlier comment-question revising: "I've been using LG G4 dual since december. I think that I'm alergic to the metal frame of the phone which is giving me itching, aching and pain in my hands. Is there anyone who is living similar problems?"
chjp, 15 Apr 2016please tell me how to do the resetYou say "reset" three times fast. If it doesn't work the first time, try again.
I Got my LGg4 last week. so far I'm satisfied and everything is Good. its battery life last for a day. I do hour calls, internet and games, it doesn't lag yet. i think its worth it. but i do suggest to use memory card. overall I give it 4 star.
great phone upgraded on marshmallow no heat up or battery drain issue.just reset after upgrade and its working like a charm since one month.
great phone in term of high end specs snapdragon 808 octa core awesome front and back cam dual 4g/lte supported great standby time very light weight no heatup or battery drain issue so far. great budget device.
