AnonD-651910, 04 Apr 2017Oh , well what other sub $350 phone would you recommend ?LG will fix your G4 for the boot loop problem. I had mine fixed last December and I just sent my wife's in to be fixed today. It cost me nothing on the first phone and I don't expect it to cost anything for the next one.
Will LG G4 to get an upgrade to Android version Nougat 7.0 / 7.1?
I bought LG G4 last year in July, 2016. I have now a problem with its screen. The screen is split to two screens. One screen is garbled. It is flickering and hard to see what's in it. I also had charger cable problems. It no more works. What a shit company. NEVER buy an LG phone anymore. That's my advice. LG needs more experience and years to learn how to manufacture good phones so as to compete with companies like Samsung, Iphone, Sony etc....
Love this phone but after only 15 months of light usage it started malfunctioning with what I now know to be 'bootloop'. LG repaired it under warranty and got it back to me within a week, which I thought was really good. Until I discovered that they had locked it during the repair process, and my SIM no longer works in it. They gave me the runaround when I tried to get this resolved and I've been bounced back and forth between LG and Vodafone: LG said I had to ask Vodafone to supply a new unlock code. Vodafone said LG had locked it so LG had to unlock it. Im still trying to get this resolved. I will not go to a third party to unlock, as that will invalidate the warranty, which I need to keep active given that these phones are known to be defective. So, even though the phone is lovely I would not recommend it due to the manufacturing fault and poor customer service from LG.

I've had this phone since late 2015 and it's worked amazingly up until being a victim of the bootloop issue last week. Me and 3 other friends have the phone and rave about its camera and otherwise good "bang 4 buck" value. The phone, for what it can do as a standard android smartphone is the best deal out there to this day imo. BUT, my phone is now with LG to fix the bootloop issue and I can only hope that 1) they fix it permanently on my phone, and 2) none of my friends have to go through the hassle I am going through (sending my phone via mail for repairs and losing all my personal data in the process). Of course if I continue to be a bootloop victim, well my rating on the phone goes to shit obviously... For what it's worth, LG is fixing my phone for free despite my 1-year warranty expiring over 3 months ago.
I honestly think, bootloop issues aside, this is still a great phone and much more affordable than other phones which do essentially the same thing. While I'm without my G4, I'm on a "borrowed" Samsung S7 Edge (actually had to buy the phone but can return it in 15 days full refund). This phone was 900$!! wtf... it's NOT worth that much. I paid 400$ for my G4.
I have an issue with my G4.when i power it on its working by welcoming me then its doing nothing.what might be the problem.its just showing the word welcome
i agree this phone is crap. i got one and had it for a year then boot loop called and went through insurance was sent another one had it for a year as well and today it done same thing. cant get phone to work at all
Anonymous, 28 Mar 2017Pls i was about to buy this phone but i want know the meaning of bootloop.I just got back my G4 from LG. I sent it back because of that bootloop issue. As long as they confirm that it is the issue they replace your phone. That is my story though, i'll give it some time to see what happens.

Anonymous, 28 Mar 2017Pls i was about to buy this phone but i want know the meaning of bootloop.don't even think of buying this device
don't buy this phone....i purchased a LG G4 in February, 2016. It lasted only 1 year and a month, fell victim to the infamous Boot loop issue. There is no solution and this problem is not curable by any means. The phone can be temporarily turned on by heating up the motherboard to recover your data...and that's all you can do!!!!! If you have warranty, LG may repair or replace your set, but it won't last long either. Before boot loop, my G4 was a awesome device, now it's just a garbage. I completely lost my faith :(
DO NOT BUY LG PRODUCTS!!! They knew about this bootloop issue, but kept making and selling the phones with the flaw - then they will not stand behind them. Excuse me, they did actually extend the warranty on these phones BY 3 MONTHS WTF? 3 months! Well it shows what kind of company they are. The class action suit will cost them millions in legal fees - money they could have used to repair their defective phones, and would have kept most of their customers happy. Now everyone in that class action suit will get a $5 off coupon (or some other meaningless offer) and will be gone from LG forever. A person would be completely ignorant to ever purchase another LG product - EVER! All of their products have electronics, even appliances. If they can't build their phones right and won't stand behind them - what makes you think any of their other products will be any different? No one I know will ever buy an LG product!
