LGes, 11 Aug 2014What had done yesterday was factory reset to my G3 from the backup and reset tab in settings.
... moreYes it is normal that a factory reset keeps the last firmware version.
For MacAffee antivirus, can't you uninstall it in settings / apps manager ? Or at least disable it ? No need to root for that.

Max CPU temperature reading is 74ºC
Max Battery Temperature reading is 41ºC
While watching 1080P movie CPU temp is around 48ºC.
Brightness level 50%.
By the way mine is connected to 4G connection all day.
From morning with the usage of more or less 1 hours playing Hero Dream, Video call with LINE APP for 45 mins and sending few messages, browsing web for 30 mins still has around 20% battery by the end of the day. Been observing this phone since the day i got it.
I'll post again after a few more days about my usage.
Hoping for someone to post also their experience in temperature for this smartphone. Thanks
darcmatter, 11 Aug 2014Yeah.. I updated it to 10g after I bought the phone..

Don't forget we're in August, very hot.
Heating results in short battery life.
Best to do is lower the brightness to 30% when not using camera video, keep battery status over 50%, best over 75%(plugin charger when you're at home or office, not outside very busy etc). Lock your phone with the power bottom(back) instantly after finished using. Don't use under direct sunlight. Don't keep in vehicle(hot weather) even when not using.
Look at your phone memory to see unwanted apps despite yet to know the relation between memory used for apps running and apps downloaded, expenditure don't match in anyway!!!
75F is alright but 75C not good. Must not exceed 50C for best battery life.
What had done yesterday was factory reset to my G3 from the backup and reset tab in settings.
Transferred my wanted files to my laptop first.
Everything working flawlessly till now.
But, there are some doubts regarding some issues.
First, despite factory reset, the software still V10g(phone latest software), same for all apps that come with the phone, all are still updated!!!
Is something wrong with this??
Second, the McAfee Security updated too and running as phone admin, unchecked it, not able to uninstall it in anyway, when i stop it, runs again after restart and when want to disable it says forcing stop may make phone work bad..is this okay to disable anyway?
Made a mistake by updating it with the other basic apps when first bought the phone.
How can I get rid of it?? Can't understand why LG signed a deal with this antivirus when it has limited scan feature!!!
From a month ago till now, the McAfee found no threat whatsoever!!!
Downloaded CM Security and Antivirus after factoryreset, it found 2 threats on my phone from first scan, the threats had names "toolkit" or something similar.
Locked McAfee Security with CM AppLock feature, will this solve the problem??
LGes, 11 Aug 2014Have you updated your G3 software to V10g?Yeah.. I updated it to 10g after I bought the phone..
mine is the 32GB variant.. There is no heating problem if the phone is on stand by. CPU temp is around 34ºC.
allcatraz, 10 Aug 2014lg g3 can spit only those who did not have or jealousy, because I can not buy it. The phone is... moreRight. With all little problems one might encounter in G3. It's still a very good buy and first choice for any smartphone user using Andriod.
If am going to return every phone I use after little lags or heating in its first release, I'll be very busy returning and buying new phones every few weeks to a month that I'll not be able to use any seriously)))))
tudor.bn, 10 Aug 2014this year I leaved HTC for Lg, i had htc one m7 and i had the camera senzor defect when all pi... moreWell said. V10g solved it all. LG will continue working on better new software to improve its best smartphone ever.
TeD, 10 Aug 2014If your G3 works fine, like probably most G3 do, no need to have it checked. Just saying that ... moreAt time you're waiting for S4, samsung are busy copying G3 or and spying on iphone6 to copy it.
Either way S4 will be more expensive than G3 for sure.
Don't have to tell anyone that iphone which i will prefer over samsung copycat and because i'll be choosing Apple quality and different OS will be
some 35% more expensive than G3 for similar or less specs.
G3 best smartphone choice for both its quality specs and price this year.
hello G3 owners..
I'm currently using mine for 5 days now.
didn't encounter about any shutdown issue but my concern about the heating.
my phone heats fast after i used it for a few minutes of browsing CPU temp around 55ºC and when using camera after 15 shots CPU temp is around 60ºC.
I'm using CPU temp app from google play.
So far max CPU temp reading is around 74ºC while playing games..
Can you post also your experience about heating problem and temperatures.. thanks
David, 10 Aug 2014PLZ Help. my phone memory 2.2gb used 800mb free, total apps running not exceed 500mb, why 2.2g... moreGo to settings -> apps -> swipe the screen fron right to left 3 times to get the ALL menu.
Here uninstall all apps that you do not use. Choose force stop and disable for the unnecessary apps that cannot be uninstalled.
Or choose force stop for all apps that you do not use often. Use clean master and app cache cleaner pro apps to clear the cache. Do not panic. Follow this procedure.
2nd possibility :
There might be virus. Purchase Kaspersky internet security for android from sakri.in websitr and install. The code will be sent to your email within 3 days of purchase.
is the 32gb version with 3 gb of ram any faster than the 16 gb version cuz I wanna buy one but here in Italy the 32 gb costs €150 more
Will LG release G3 with 1080 pixels 3000 mah battery ?
That would be good for them.
TeD, 10 Aug 201490 pages of people complaining about random shutdowns in the forum of xda-developers.com I hi... morelg g3 can spit only those who did not have or jealousy, because I can not buy it. The phone is perfect, it is hard to find fault with anything. maybe, his main objection is the size. That's right, it's a little inconvenient to carry and hold for a person who has smaller hands, but after a short time it becomes normal. Comfort working in a large, perfectly precise screen compensates all that and after almost all phones look, no offense to any owner other phone as toys
this year I leaved HTC for Lg, i had htc one m7 and i had the camera senzor defect when all pictures were purple, i had Lg g2 great phone but to much plastic and now Lg G3, i had some problems but after the update to v10g all was repair, the battery not as good as G2 but anyway, you will love your LG G3 if u will buy one, i recommand it.
LGes, 10 Aug 2014Don't understand me wrong. I hadn't defend LG in anyway or said G3 have no issues at all.
I s... moreIf your G3 works fine, like probably most G3 do, no need to have it checked. Just saying that the shutting down problem is disturbing and has been acknowledged by LG, responding for now with a software update which unfortunately does not seem to work for everybody.
Personally i will wait to see what the Note 4 brings on the table before making any purchase decision.
