This phone worked like a charm...for 1.5 years and then it happened. The phone out of no where stopped reading the sim. When it was unable to do it, it restarts the phone automatically, changes the language but is still not reading the sim. It intermittently reads the sim but most of the time it is not. I really liked this phone but i have no choice but to replace it. Ive heard g5 is having some issues too but i cant confirm or deny.
I have been using this phone for 5-6 months and its been a disaster ..i am using the At&t model and many of the features are blocked like wifi hotspot usb connection and others... Phone starts heating when i play some heavy games and often shuts down on its own and doesn't turn on even after i press and hold the power button so have to remove the battery and then get it started...i also found out that my Phone is refurbished so i guess this is why the problems are numerous but still the software UI is laggy and the battery lasts like 2.5 hrs from 100% to 0
My phone has got dead. Does not turn on, initially showed blue screen. Now, Nothing
I don't know why are some of you blameing Lg for the G3 and claiming samsung is better. Yes, probably some phones had problems, but that doesn't mean all G3s are crap. I have mine(855) for 2 years now and it is great. Runs like dream, never had a problem. And i am thinking of getting another phone witch will be G3 again! So samsung grenades are not that good, fanboys!
dang this phone was great until 1 morning 1 woke up with blue screen of death starts flickering never turn on then just blue screen appears and now my phone was dead shame on you lg

If it's a buggy firmware then problems will persist. Try first a factory reset & backup your data. If that doesn't work then download & flash another rom on the LG. Hopefully the issues will ease & should be functioning as normal afterwards.

i PURCHASED THE lg g3 2 weeks ago. It started overheating and brightness-lowering, because of it's temperature. And now, It charges slowly, Instant loss of battery and after I tried to not use it. Then I wanted to use it again to check. IT BECAME A USELESS DEVICE SAYING LG. (Yeah, right most innovationnal phone of 2014.) What a waste of money, really.
I did turn the screen on, then when I turned it off, It came back with the screen saying LG. It did it randomly. I know this is an opinion, but if you're switching to LG, think twice! I try to see the bright side of it, but there is no bright side. DANG IT!
LG please examine this happening of flickering issue just before its ( LG G3 - D-855 ) Display brightness goes off and it becomes a useless object . Could it be some virus that is affecting almost almost maximum number og LG G3 before their demise ? Worst thing is I lost some files of of some important documents.
Can LG help me in recovering that file data of about 3 GB in is internal memory.
I purchased the LG G3 used in March based on a lot of good reviews here. I had no issues and was recently praising this phone and thinking about getting the LG 4 until yesterday. I went to use my phone and while I was texting I started to get flickering and fading black on the screen. Of course I got nervous because the amount of stuff on this phone and the fear of loosing them. I called LG who informed me it can be a update that was just done and to either send it to them or check a local phone repair shop. I took it to a repair shop who informed me that its the motherboard and to get a new phone. I feel so annoyed because I was having so much issues with the Samsung Galaxy 3 I was using before the LG and I don't know which phone to get as I am nervous about getting the LG 4 as the reviews on here is bad. I just can't Win. Any ideas?
Everyone with overheating and pwoer problems... stop charging your phones overnight!!! it damages the battery!
I have a Portuguese version of D855 ( LG G3 ) and reside in India and was using this phone for the past ONE YEAR and FIVE MONTHS and it was working quite nicely with Excellent Camera.
Today morning my phone display started flickering and then the display vanished. Incoming call ringer is ringing for an incoming call but I cannot connect because of NO Display. Occasionally display glows for two three seconds on persistance attempts. I have Never ever Dropped this phone. D'ont know what happened.
LG Service centre people told me that it is a Hardware fault and motherboard needs replacement and its cost is about Rs.14,000/- for Foreign version motherboard and Rs.7000/- for Indian version and the warranty shall be only for 3 Three months. I fail to understand about two versions of motherboard for D855. I do not want to discard this phone but with the rates quoted for its repair by LG are giving a cue to me that I should be careful in future, in deciding in favour of LG.
