Ok so since my friend has a good LG G3 which is not restarting randomly or heating very quick, we decided to swap phones. He used my old G3 in exchange for Samsung S5 (yeah we ditched the defective G3) and Im using his G3. No problems so far and im really happy with it.
I think there are batch of defective D855 units released by LG due to demand and to make up with the supply. Coz I know this is one of the best phones for 2014.
LGes, 04 Oct 2014Surely not talking about G3 phone. Post your queries on the related phone review page dude!You are very pathetic for making such comment. If you have nothing to say about my question [which obviously U don't have] , why not just shut the hell up and pass? Can't somebody go anywhere and ask any question? Did I troll?
I use CM Security and Clean Master that both work as Antivirus, boost memory, remove junks, and the first can lock apps but even this didn't stop the useless McAfee from running and popping in notification!!!
Very weird too that McAfee doesn't appear in those apps in the preinstalled app tab(nor in other apps tab...) when want to stop it from there instead manually through settings, general, running apps....
I also use Apus to organize my folders, screen, one click boost, and battery saver.
Downloaded the Greenify app but not sure how to best use it??
Anyone have other interesting apps to use with or instead?
Do you guys keep it as Admin and keep on updating it on request. Even when you install other antiviruses?
Anyone was able to remove the McAfee from G3?
S . SUDHAKAR, 04 Oct 2014Sorry for that. Try backing up the data and do factory reset.I had already reset it to factory default a month ago.
It will not help to remove the McAfee because it comes preinstalled, so it will get worse since it will be set as Admin, then it will ask you to update it, when you don't even want it to exist on your G3:)

So instead of accusing others as "trolls" why don't you check other forums regarding the problems we are facing with our G3?
You just got lucky you didn't got the faulty one. And besides, this is tell other potential buyers about the issues that they "may" face in the future. If you don't have to say anything nice, better not to comment.

I still do not understand what is that but I hope those who have problems in their handset should get solved as early as possible.

Can anyone who had no problem so far with the G3 32GB post his/her G3 build number? instead of accusing others for trolling!!!

You must set any one app* as the device administrator (go to settings, phone administrators). Or else you will get the warning.
* means - any one of these : Androiod device manager, mcafee security or the antivirus that you have installed.
Limited, 04 Oct 2014what's your phone's version as well as the model and build number?LG G3 D855 16 GB model.

Samsung and Apple Haters leave this forum plz...
S . SUDHAKAR, 04 Oct 2014My phone does not have that problem.what's your phone's version as well as the model and build number?

Mostly, it is a software problem. Because LG uses its own software mixed with Andriod one in its G3 phone.
Practically, whatever LG engineers brilliancy level is, combining 2 softwares in one have its consequences!
Wondering why LG doesn't create its own one like Apple have, when they decided to do the first step, continue it...!!!!
