I put my bootlooped G4 in the freezer (-18 degrees celsius) for 1.5 hours and got 7 minutes of use out of my G4 before it shut down again but it was enough time to get the data off it.

Had a new motherboard fitted under warranty and so far no more problems only time will tell. Hope you have better luck as I agree with you the G4 is a great device.

too bad it will die a horrible bootloop death :))) no more LG for me ...EVER ... phone, TV...NOTHING!!!
Mine is LG-H818P with S/N 603. Hardware (1.1).
I'm not experiencing the bootloop, but my screen has an occasional burn-in (screen). My Note 4 has burn-ins as well :(
Dont try to buy LG Mobile Phones at all. Dont waste your valuable money on buying this waste products. i bought my G4 in DEC 2015, i had replaced my motherboard 2 times and still the problem continues the phone getting overheat. Dont buy LG Mobiles..
Yup, mine also died with the bootloop fault (after 16 months). This has happened to too many people for LG not to have known about the issue early on. They should have recalled the phone. Seems like bad faith to me - LG just hoped that the inevitable failure would happen after the warranty for as many people as possible. This is bad policy - they make a lot of products, not just phones. I feel ripped off and certainly won't trust LG again or buy anything else of theirs. Ever.

After resetting my G4 the weather widget on the homescreen says "tap to add location" but when I tap it it says needs to download software to work, tap "download" and it takes me to the system apps update screen but nothing happens or downloads. Everything is up to date. Ideas on how to fix?
There's a class action lawsuit against LG for the G4 and V10 bootloop issues. About time.
Wallflower07, 16 Mar 2017Do not buy this phone. Totally not worth the price.

Anonymous, 15 Mar 2017Can anyone tell me which(brand n model) headset is compatible for LG G4 ?Philips are good for the lgs
Do not buy this phone. Totally not worth the price. I only used it for 12months then suddenly stopped working. I tried asking LG for the recommendation of how to fix the issue they said that it might be the problem with the motherboard. so to replaced it i have to pay alot of money. WTF! So if i were you better go for Samsung or iphone. No to LG!
Josepet, 15 Mar 2017The G4 is already old, according the updates schedule. Doesn't matter. It's a glamorous phone. Extraordinary camera for 2017, performance is fantastic & includes features with are omitted from many other phones such as FM radio, ir blaster, removable battery. The only drawback would be my phone restarted out of the blue the other day, whilst turning on my data which was bizarre. Other than that the phones a total beast!
