> In reply to Miguelinares @ 2014-06-23 01:25 from YbmK - click to readHeres some things you can try.

-take out the battery for a minute?
-
Go to apps > all > Camera > clear data and cache. (backup photos first as im not sure it will or will not delete your immages as ive never tried this).

- Download a other camera app from the play store to make sure its not just the camera app that is broken.

Use this one only if your comfortable with it.

-Open dailer and type in 3845#*880# a new hidden menu should pop open.

Then go to the following:

Device test> All Auto Test Menu-Full > Camera Test > Camera Preview.

Here you either get a error or a crash in which case you take out the battery or you see the camera working and you press the center square to focus and take a photo.
Then press pass if the photo was taken correctly.
It will automaticly start taking a video and make some bleeps. and after 7 or so seconds show a video play sign. Press play.
If it replays fine the hardware is alright. If these tests fail its possible the camera module or rom have a error.


So if that does not work theres 1 more thing you can try as last resort.

- Backup your entire Phone and do a factory rest (settings > back-up and reset > factory reset)

If that fails You need to return it.

BTW after you hidden menu use your keys will keep lighted up.
you need to restart the Phone to fix this. Goog luck and let me know how it ended.

LG P880 Optimus 4X HD - Error with the camera and bad customer service from LG

I want to put my claim because after 6 months of buying this phone on Amazon.com, from one day to another, the photo camera broke down, I have not beaten and I have not installed anything.
I formatted my memory, also utilisé the factory restore option but so far the problem continues.
5 months ago I wrote to Amazon.com and received no response, then I wrote to LG and they told me to go to a customer service office, ask them the address and received no more response from you.
Here I leave the video not to buy this product from me I do not know anything about LG

> In reply to Ankit @ 2014-06-22 14:52 from 7qGt - click to readi can but frankly these modern games DRAIN the battery at a insane speed.
If you really want to game your better off with one of tthe newer devices whic have a 22 or 28mn chip rather then a 40nm.

They last over 4 hours where with asphalt 8 my battery lasts less then 2 hours!

Its fine for my normal light use as i last up to 3 days on a charge but for gaming there are better devices these days.

After all this is a outdated device by now.

> In reply to logi @ 2014-06-18 15:34 from 3q5K - click to readthe fact that it lasts 1 day is irrelevant without further details.

-how long is your screen on timeon a full charge without gaming ? (gaming drains the battery verry fast on EVERY device)
-do you have gps , bluetooth, auto sync on or off?
-do you use 3g and how good is your signal strength and quality? (i went to a different provider with poor coverage and it cost me 1 hour screen on time with 3g usage...)
-do you have apps with adds ? (these apps constantly load new adds over wifi or 3g which eats data and battery)
-whats your brightness sett on?
-what is your stanby drain in % with 3g overnight (8 to 10 hours) it shouldbe no more then 5-7%
-do you use 2.5 or 5 ghz wifi? de 5ghz uses more power.
Do you use your Phone briefly lots of times or do you use it for 15 min or longer sessions? longer sessions heat upthe battery and hot batterys drain quicker. rubber covers can increase heating and make the batt drain quicker. a Phone/tablet last the longest if you use it for short periods all the time rater then long periods sometimes as the battery gets to cool down and settle.



Theres loads of things to consider when posting battery life on the net! ! ! !
By not doing this i dont take you serious as i dont even have 5% of the details and its highly likely that you give people a wrong impression which really buggs me.

> In reply to Ollie @ 2014-06-13 16:00 from 3cmV - click to readThats all normal. Apart from the lagging which is caused by either a bad installed app or rooting being done wrong.

Again i run this Phone at 2x 650 mhz instead of 4x 1500 and its superfast and smooth all the time but i barely have any app installed.

So do a factory reset and stay away from apps for a week and see how it preforms then.

> In reply to m_r_c @ 2014-06-16 10:39 from MA%X - click to readyes this is normal sadly.
a Phone with android 4.3 and 2 gb ram will only have 600 to 800 mb free as android caches whatever it can in the memory..
Once needed it will be removed from the memory and the new app will be loaded.
The only disadvantage this had is for multitasking and battery life.

as multitasking is limited based on free ram and battery life is affected by dumpong memory and reloading memory all the time.
It even loads things you do not use which is a waste of cpu time and battery.
This is not a lg problem tho its a andorid problem.

Never again LG!!! The phone sucks big time. I had ICS and then J, then I made a downgrade to ICS again and it still sucks. The battery lasts one day (if I'm lucky), the phone freezes every once in a while so I need to take the battery out. VERY DISSAPOINTED!

> In reply to pino @ 2014-06-09 17:11 from iJg@ - click to readI took two photos with LG Camera, both were taken in the same conditions as the one taken with Google Camera. The focus point was the same. Here's another example - http://s4.postimg.org/t6ubtlp58/image.jpg and http://s4.postimg.org/f1oirsg3x/image.jpg. The first one is from google camera, the second - LG Camera. Color reproduction is much better with GC, and I guess there's more detail as well.

Hello,

I updated yesterday to official 4.1.2, but I noticed that the free RAM is now about 100-150 Mb less than with version 4.0.3. Now I only have +/- 300 MB of free RAM. Is normal in this version?
I already disabled MLT (on hidden menu) to get a fast phone, without lag.

Thanks,

This phone is awful.I have it since last year's november and it's so sloowwww.The battery get's hot super fast when you are playing games,they begin to lag sometimes even when you press the home button the phone lags for about 10 secs until it enters back home and it is so weak,it can't even last 7 hours when listening to music and looking through pictures or smthn else.It has though some awesome features and i also think that the design is very good and feels good in your hand.

12 is not in focus the other is.
If you focus correctly they will look identical.

And the rom does not make the Phone more powerfull its still the same hrdware that runs as fine on 4.03

After upgrading to Beanstalk 4.4.2 from stock JB 4.1.2 this phone became so much powerful, that I really don't see any reason to get a new flagship device :p
The performance is so good, battery life is decent yet could be better and actually can get better - but I'm experimenting with settings in iodak kernek.
What's more amazing - camera quality got better! The google camera app on Beanstalk creates much better pictures - there's more detail, and the photo looks better overall.

> In reply to PhoneDude @ 2014-05-25 14:37 from nYPq - click to readif it doesnt update update it manualy... he most likely wanted a cheap Phone and orderd a Phone not designed for his region so it cant update. download updates manualy and you ahve 4.1.2

im still at 4.0 as its simply the best rom the optimus ui is the fastest i have had on all my devices so if someone is having problems they most likely rooted badly or have a bad app installed.

The fact some games dont work is due to verry lazy game devs this is not lgs fault they dont make games.
And to be honest asphalt works fine for me so once again check what apps you have installed if it works all fine for me it must be something people did to there phones.

people complain all day every day but the simple fact that i dont have issues is reason enough to believe others messed arround with things they shouldnt touch or installed crap software that scrwed up there phones.


and as said many times before my Phone runs on 2 cores at 640 mhz not 4x 1.5 ghz and it still runs great and i get 5,5 hours screen on from it when not gaming.
