I've had this phone for 5 months now and I am still happy with my choice.
The screen is superb!
The battery is grand, I leave it over night to charge, get up around 10am and I usually still have around 20% left when I go to bed again.
The Leather back is great to hold in the hands.
I can't complain about the camera at all! Just wish the video mode had manual controls like the photo mode. The Pictures this thing takes is comparable to the Nokia 1020 quality.
Power of the phone is good.
Charging time is fantastic 30 minutes = 40% - 50%.
Even though the LG G5 is out now, I would still recommend this phone.
Previous phones i've are:
Sony Xperia Z3
I would still recommend this phone over the phones i've had.
I am using lg g4 and it have a bootloop issue, me and thousands of other people are suffering for this problem my phone is not booting up and Lg haven't done anything for us. Don't believe LG their flagship always have some issue
even My LG G2 had yellow tint screen and touch screen issue I gave LG a 2nd chance, they failed miserably.
Don't trust them and their cheap Hardware

This would be a great bday present :)
J as JL, 05 Apr 2016Can anyone tell me how this phone works in terms of battery, i'm considering to buy this phone... moreSorry if battery is the most important thing then this is not the right phone to buy.
J as JL, 05 Apr 2016Can anyone tell me how this phone works in terms of battery, i'm considering to buy this phone... moreI just bought the phone a week ago and the charge is very good. I can do almost 1 day and a half with a normal usage. With a good usage you can do a full day without problem. Also you can always by a new battery later!
Hi . can anyone tell me if their G4 freezes when you using the contacts list on your phone. I started having this problem recently after I upgraded the software.
Can anyone tell me how this phone works in terms of battery, i'm considering to buy this phone, but one of the things i'm looking for is BATTERY, i know that i cannot ask for 2 days with a single charge, but a descent day will be more than fine, i know that you can replace the battery and that the fast charge feature will help me too, as well as carring a power bank with me. But i need to know if any of you guys had/have problems with battery or heating with this device ('cause i have all this troubles with my current Moto X 1st Gen and i don't want that thing anymore with a newer phone). Thanks
I have a Sony Xperia z1 now. I had it for 3 years. I'm really okay with with. The camera's descent and quite clear in some angles. When I was watching a TV show, I saw this cool looking phone. And since I'm very curious to know what phone it is I looked it up. And then I saw LGG4. And i was like watching so many videos and reading articles about it. And I though this phone is really cool and unique. My birthday's coming up so I'm planning to buy it. But when you bring money into this. I already have a nice and descent phone should I buy it or not?
Ian, 04 Apr 2016Damn I like this phone but 5.5" is just too big. Now Im confused which phone I should buy now ... moreYou can compare the phones here, in gsmarena. You can see for yourself that z3+ is really close to G4 in terms of actual size , and it is 5.2". If you have the chance to grab one of those phones for yourself to see how well fit in your hands, then it will be awesome and you will make the best choice :)
G4 has great feel, and doesn't slip from your hand , as it's plastic combined with leather , makes you think it's more premium than it actually is and feels nice in the hand.
Then why is it so overrated guys? Its so cheap and people always tend to choose Samsung,huawei,Sony or htc over it.. Is it the advertising? Or is it really not as good as the other phones? Or is there alot of problems or glitches with the device? I wanna know why is it so good in the internet but nobody buys it? None of my friends actually got it they go for the note 4 or the s6 or htc one m8,m9 and maybe huawei ascend mate 7,honor 7.. I wanna know if its really underrated or its just not as good as its competitors. Thanks :)
Ian, 04 Apr 2016Damn I like this phone but 5.5" is just too big. Now Im confused which phone I should buy now ... moreThis is the common mistakes people does while comparing the size.
Rather than referring the whole physical size, people go by screen size which makes the compactness (or the body to screen ratio) go for a toss.
LG G4 isnt too compact, like G2 or G3 but it offers better compact package than other 2 mentioned in the post.
So best way is, go to the shop and see how it feels in your hand.
Ian, 04 Apr 2016Damn I like this phone but 5.5" is just too big. Now Im confused which phone I should buy now ... moreMan this is a great phone although you are stuck making the decision. Forget that half an inch and just go for it. The specs it provides are unbeatable.
Damn I like this phone but 5.5" is just too big. Now Im confused which phone I should buy now in april 2016. Im like between G4, Z3+ or galaxy S5. Only this phones in option. Can someone pls help me about choice which phone I should buy?
G4 - stopped me for 5.5 inch display
Z3+ - stopped me due to the overheating issue
S5 - boring ui and design
Here z3+ is my favorite but that overheating issue is problem but I'm not heavy user.
Anyway I will find your opinions helpfull and usefull so thanks anyone who answer on my problem. Cheers
harry , 04 Apr 2016My mistake (to my g4), I left charger over night and so after 100per cent full charger still a... moreOvercharging has nothing to do with knock-knock malfunction. I heard this issue with most of LG G4 users. Even I face it sometimes, may be 30% of the time, but I dont mind tapping it again. Not a big issue for me.
I upgraded to G4 (818N) from G2 the day it was brought in India and I was pretty happy about almost everything. But as soon as I upgraded to Marshmallow, my phone ran into battery issues, started charging too slow and started getting hot. I dont play mobile games but battery life became half.
Ran to service centers who took 7 days just to downgrade it to 5.1 back again. They claimed they replaced the motherboard but when I checked IMEI numbers, they were caught off gaurd. They still dont have any answer on why they kept my phone for 7 days. Battery and Hot issues resolved but still struggling with slow charge issue.
Horrible experience at LG service centers. My loyalty is going to change soon. Never going to buy LG phones again.
My mistake (to my g4), I left charger over night and so after 100per cent full charger still attached for 6hours and so I don't know if the damage has done because my g4 knock knock code malfunction in it. When my phone hibernated or on locked I cannot wake it up the screen by tapping it. Even I press the power button so to no avail. I have to remove the battery for me to restart my g4. Does it troubled with the overcharging of my phone? Anyone can help me pls? Right now what I did was to kept my screen open but putting brightness zero just not to go to sleep because I cannot wake it up again. Thanks for the help
Guys how is the g4 compared to the galaxy note 4? Cause in my country they're pretty much the same price .. I don't want to know about the specifications on paper or whatever I want to know from someone who has tried both and have experience
P.S I'm already using a power bank so I don't really care for battery life. Thanks :)
Guys ,, how is the g4 in comparison of the galaxy note 4? Cause here in my country they're pretty much the same price. P.S I don't care for battery life as I'm already going using a power bank
