Pretty great phone but battery life was poor! Also I didn't have the boot issue thank goodness! But the phone became very slow after years.
Hi, My LG G4 dual battery draining very fast. It was Lollypop when i bought. Due to some hardware issues they have replaced the hardware and upgraded to MarshMallow. Facing this issue after upgrade. Battery is good. I donno whether downgrade/upgrade is possible. if so, will it fix this battery issue. Can any one please advise.
I bought g4 in 2015. after using about 6 month the phone didn't start up and i realised it's a general issue of this phone. so hopefully i bought this phone with a warranty that repaired and changed the phones board for free but I lost all my data on internal storage. after using 3 years the phones battery draining faster than before. but apart from these issues it's working quite well for me. the screen and both cameras working well. also i got 2 batteries and a charger which allows me to use it for longer time. the screen is 5.5 inches and its large enough to use it conveniently.
I bought my G4 new at a discount 18 months ago, the 5th LG phone I've had since my Nexus 5. It had the features I wanted and at half its original price was too good to pass up.
Over the G2 it replaced the first thing I noticed was the significant improvement in call audio, much clearer and louder. The camera is still above average at 2160p, and the music playback quality is about as good as I think I've had on any device I've owned. The nav button slider is something I like a lot and any phone I buy in future will need to have a variation on this feature. I also noticed that the screen was much brighter than my previous phone.
After all this I don't completely understand why the battery life was so poor. I got a larger replacement battery and this is holding up well after about a year. I had a minor issue with overheating but this is now less usual (probably thanks to updates) although it can get a bit warm if I look at maps for more than a couple of minutes.
I'm deciding when I might want to replace it. The key issue here is probably going to be battery life and that the next phone will need an upgraded camera at 2160p. I don't think I'm in a hurry to do that yet though. When I do it is probably going to be another LG model as I've always found these to be good quality - I've never broken an LG screen - reliable and, in the UK, affordable.

I've had this phone for 2.5 years. Bought it when G5 came out and got a good discount since it became "previous model". The 3GB RAM ensures it can keep up with the newer apps. Had issues with it unable to end calls at times, and I had to force a restart by pulling out the battery. But an update to the system software later resolved this.
Had been using it heavily and I have no complaints really. I'm buying a new battery and hope to squeeze at least another 12 months with this phone.
My phone stays charged longer than any phone i have had only problem I turned on the flash light by mistake and now I am wondering how I did it that was a nice feature and want to use it again
For anyone who is looking to buy this phone, go for it.
Been using it for about 3 years now, the only problem i have with it is that the battery life is getting alot shorter. (My battery has not been replaced even once)

I bought my lg g4 a second hand, everything works fine but waking up the screen is a problem, i will double tap d screen but it doesn't come up, i will click d power button but still will not work,even if a call comes in,it will ring but the screen will still be off, but if i plug a charger or remove the battery and put it back den it will come up, even if d battery is full it still happens.pls is there any solution for this? Help.
The truth about the LG G4 is dramatic and potentially tragic for data that isn't thoroughly backed-up. The G4 has an inherently faulty motherboard that freezes in the well known "boot loop," and then can crash completely. I've had two (because of warranty replacement) and the only LG fix is to wipe your phone and start over, with less reliability than before, and none of your lost data retrievable! Stay away!!
very good performace
camera is not much good for low light but in day light it is very good
battery timing is normal
restarting problem is very common in this phone that leads to dead board

Check out this topic at XDA for installing it on any H815 variant: https://forum.xda-developers.com/g4/development/h815-nougat-stock-t3659860
You will have to unlock your bootloader but this is easy (you just have to register an account at LG and perform a few simple steps with the phone connected to a computer), the unlock will be sent to you by email. Then you can flash the update. I have installed it today and it works great.
