Gago, 14 Apr 2017I am fairly surprised about written comments for the LG G4. I have this phone for about one ye... moreI respectfully disagree. I would not recommend buying a product that has a significant chance of going dead in a year or so, regardless of warranty. Buying the G4 would be like buying a bomb, hoping that it won't go off in the future.
This is not a Nokia 1020 or an 808, but, that said it is easy on the eye and the pocket has good enough and replaceable battery life and an EXCELLENT camera IF you can be bothered to shoot RAW files and NOT underexpose. AS with most phones the pixels are tiny and cannot stand much underexposure, but its colour and dynamic range when treated in Photoshop is excellent. Its DNG files-which it had from Day one (why I did not get an S6), are excellent because the very fast 24mm equivalent lens is sharp edge to edge and corner to corner. Its jpegs are rubbish-oversharpened cartoon cutout things, ok for web use but little else.
There are HUGE bonuses as it has an EXCELLENT RDS hi-definition FM stereo radio that RECORDS everything off air as you would like, OK? You want a complete opera live from the Met? yeah, record it. A Rock concert, no problem, and with the V20 updateinstalled the sound is even better than it was originally.
The panoramas are very HUGE, but they are just huge oversharpened jpegs lacking in definition and you are stuck with them and the varying exposure across a scene (yuch) nowhere near what an S6 or iPhone 6 plus offer.
On the other hand you can always shoot a sucession of Raw files at fixed exposure and then stitch them, but that takes the fun out of what mobile phone panoramas do. I have our postman in three places in one continuous shot! Priceless.
All in all, it still up there with the very best> you can do 4ft wide single shots on your wall from Raw at low isos with quality so good nobody will know its from a mobile and not a Canon 1Ds MkII at 400iso!!
Such a shame Sierra does not accept Android file transfer. Does anybody know a free reliable programme that works with Android phones in Sierra?
Gago, 14 Apr 2017I am fairly surprised about written comments for the LG G4. I have this phone for about one ye... moreworst cell phone i ever owned. occasionally froze up. often wouldn't hold its place when reading a site. pictures difficult to frame. frequently couldn't get into desired sites. just a pure piece of junk!
I bought a LG G4 and since fifteen months ago works fine. I wish underline that with bluetooth speakers and his 24 bits /192 Khz audio chip, flies high. The V20 Quad compulsory improve it, but, I think, slightly better.
lg g4 is the worst just becoz of its bootloop ,, speacially in pakistan where theres not even a single shop of lg mobiles and repairers ,,, so i dnt recommend lg g4 . overall specs area good n no doubt camera is also superb but after some time the bootloop cause problems
Gago, 14 Apr 2017I am fairly surprised about written comments for the LG G4. I have this phone for about one ye... moreI agree i was absolutely happy with my phone until it bootlooped 3 months after the warrenty finished.
Now i've already paid LG to fix my phone and its still got problems and i've had to make multiple trips to the service center over the last 6 weeks to fix it again and again. I dont know why they just don't replace the pcb with a new one.
I think that if LG repairs correctly the affected units, its legal responsibilities end here.
I am fairly surprised about written comments for the LG G4. I have this phone for about one year now and I never had a single lag or slowing down whatsoever. Camera is absolutely amazing, speaker is loud and clear and the battery last at least for a day when using the phone hard. I am speaking of about 4,5 - 5 hours of screen on time. I have no complaints about screen, signal and speaking quality when making a phone call. My phone is in the series without bootloop problem. The only thing i think it should be better is video quality, I dont like much how stabilization works, but it's usable when you don't shake it much. Once more, LGs phones are the closest to apple devices when speaking about system stability and smoothness and workflow when using it. I literary haven't restarted the phone for more than 4 months, never did factory reset, and it flyes. There is a lot of negative comments issuing bootloop problem and hating the phone, but rarely anyone will come and write a positive comment if they are happy with the phone. If you have bootloop problem, go and return it, your warranty covers it. For everybody: this phone is amazing, and i recommend buying it, especially now when you can find it for about $300 new.
Ali, 12 Apr 2017there is two generation for LG g4. H810 and H815! So which one is affected by bootloop problem... moreCheck the serial number. If it's a 50x serial number I would definately return it.
there is two generation for LG g4. H810 and H815! So which one is affected by bootloop problem? I bought this device from eBay and I am surprised what the people said. So should I return it? I sent an email to the LG company, they just said any devices come from eBay no warranty on it. I have 30 days for return the device, so please any one tell me what should I do?
Was a good phone until it went shit in 14 months ,bootloop problem.LG extended there warranty for 2 years because of all the problems.Getting a replacement under warranty,and if it does it again i'm through with any LG products.
I didn't like this phone from the moment I got it. Thought the camera focused poorly, battery life not very good for a new phone, loaded with lots of apps I never used but couldn't delete. Then it froze almost exactly​ 14 months after purchase. Warranty had ended and I had a phone that wouldn't turn on or off. It was just stuck on a black screen. No notice, nothing strange before the phone died. Fortunately my carrier agreed to pay off the balance and I was able to get something else. I was told by 3 different employees of the carrier that this is a known problem with the G4. My daughter had a G3 and had similar problems but at least she got 2 years from it. I'll never buy another LG phone. On a side note, I have an LG washing machine which I also hate
AnonD-651910, 07 Apr 2017That was literally my only issue with buying that phone , but i feel now that its pros outweig... moreA5 2017 specs look good. But there is no 24 bit 192 KHz audio chip - meaning you will not get deep bass effect and crisp sound* when using Sony MDR-XB70AP earphones.
* means - The source video or audio must be good.
I bought this phone because a cellphone store was selling it via loan by an bank, so you can pay it by parts. The store also gave 1 month warranty; at first, everything was great, but after 1 month and few days it started with a serious problem: the famous bootloop problem. I returned the phone to the store and they said that it's the software issue. I waited 1 week and they couldn't fix it. I read on Internet about the bootloop problem and was very dissapointed with LG. I think never would buy their products again. :(
AnonD-20890, 07 Apr 2017A5 2017 is goodcompared to LG if you do not bother about OIS.That was literally my only issue with buying that phone , but i feel now that its pros outweigh the cons , it's processor is better than G4s right ? and if you exclude OIS and 4K video , it's camera is also the same as LGs right ?
