Want to buy lg g4 dual in next month ( June) 2016 ....confused about all mixed reviews & bootloop problem(don't know what dis means)?_..help me out
Should I buy g4 or opt for Mi5/moto x style?
I want to know if the boot loop problem is fixed or I must stick to a g3
Had one for 3 months. Do. Not. Get. This. Phone. Seriously, there's a plague of issues surrounding this phone. Google "G4 bootloop," Reddit has covered this pretty extensively as well. It's sad because LG has done really nothing to address the issue, except to send it to their service center if your warranty stands, which takes about a 3 week turn around time if you're lucky. If you're from outside the US and the manufacturer is outside your country of origin than you essentially just have an expensive paperweight or parts piece.
Don't make the mistake I did =/

Please help me
I just bought my G4 two months ago. I am now replacing my battery for the second time. Not impressed
I have this phone for 2 months now. So far is a very good device in every aspect. Camera is one of the best that I have ever seen, much better then Galaxy S6 or Iphone 6. Battery life could be better, but is ok..I manage to go trough the day. When I was buying this phone I didnt know anything about the bootloop problem (I just knew G series is good, my sister have G3 32 Gb model and it is excelent). My G4 SN is 616, so I hope that I will not have that problem. I would serious recomanded this phone.
Hi guys! About the known boot loop issue that affects some G4's, are there any new developments? I want to buy this phone but i'm very afraid of buying a faulty one. So far i've read that serial numbers from 505 (manufactured in May) to 509 (September) have some probabilities to have the boot loop problem and the hardware version being the 1.1BL doesn't fix it. Any more to add?
HDR photos (selfies included) are not displayed in gallery (show exclamation mark) or the photo loads the day taken, next day "failed to load photo". Have same problem with videos. What to do? is there a special app to use to solve this?
Mark Schoffner, 08 May 2016best device you can find now is samsung s7 edgeSammy S7 and S7 Edge are good phones, but overpriced ($700+)!!! Lg G4 is a good phone with good battery (not bad), and it's $350 new. Used is under $160 on Craigslist.com. Sammy S6 is good also at under $230 used.

Set to "auto brightness", turn off GPS, wifi, bluetooth if not in use!!! You will see a big different in battery life. Watching youtube or playing games will kill the battery very fast.

I Don't like the size, but it's a great phone. I think the Samsung Galaxy S6 or S7 is the best fit for your needs. The S6 on Craigslist.com is under $230!!
I want to buy a smartphone. I need at least 8 megapixel camera at the back. the smartphone should be handy not bulky. I hate those. Can you recommend me a model?
