The bootloop is a small issue, no problems with mine. I've had the LG G4 for over a year and not encountered a single fault. I suppose i'm just lucky. Remember - the people who do encounter a fault will be more vocal then those who haven't. Like me, I don't feel the need to rant because I've had a positive experience with this device. If you need an upgrade from the LG G2 then go for it. The Micro SD card slot and removable back is very convenient. The performance boost in graphical power makes this a great device for games and movies. It's not bad at taking photos either.
After 4 days of my one year warranty expired my G4 also got the bootloop problem, I talked to LG, they said to send it in, they paid for the shipping and they changed the motherboard at no cost to me at all. Process took one week and then I got my G4 back, it was like a brand new phone. I had most things backed up anyways, so didn't lose much.
I use my LG G4 for exactly 4 days after the 1-year warranty expired, then I got this bootloop problem. Despite this is a known design fault, the service centre refused to replace the motherboard for me free of charge. It charge a rip-off price of HK$2000. I will never buy any LG product again in my life.
I purchased g4 last Decmeber 2015 , a gift for my wife, then last month the phone was shut down while it charging and we try to turn it on. No response only logo appears. BOOT LOOP!!!!!!!!!!!!.
I am very fun of LG unit. I am using LG G3 right now. I am very disappoint for the lg g4.
I encountered same problem with my lg g4 after 1 and half year of using this phone. I goencountered totroops their service center, they re-soldered some parts on motherboard and it back to work again. After 12 hours of using, goodluck encountered bootloop again and again ....They said that if bootloop happen again they going to replace motherboard because it was the main issue and it cost a lot. I decided to buy another brand of cellphone than to replace motherboard of my lg g4 coz after a year maybe I encounter again that bootloop issue....
Almost every LG phone had a set of problems that are like many of the unsolved mysteries. But i am sure this is nothing but a business strategy to force customers to ditch their old non working handsets and buy latest device....
LG G2- touchscreen non responsive....
G3 - boot loop and touchscreen flickering, black screen, screen non responsive.
G4 - boot loop, Screen Flickering dead after warranty.....
G5 - dead after warranty, touch screen non responsive... overheating....
V10 - Bootloop.... etc... I can keep on going.... no end....
Everybody's talking about what they've got on Christmas. I'm here talking about what I lost. Thank you LG for setting our phones on a self destruction schedule.

You're gonna have to change its motherboard which costs a lot in some countries. My LG is having the same problem.

The other one, LG Optimus Pro got the same problem. I don't know what I was thinking.... Never buying another LG phone. And there's no way I'm gonna pay that much money for a motherboard replacement. I'll just save my money and buy a new one.
My LG G4 cannot power on at exactly 4 days after the 1 -year warranty expired. The LG service centre in Hong Kong asked me to pay HK$2000 for motherboard replacement. What a garbage product and a big rip-off. Never bug LG phone again!!!

Hamza, 25 Dec 2016Hello! I had experienced the bootloop issue with my LG G4 previously as well. Looking into it ... moreYeah, i know that already. But from the reviews on XDA and some other sites, some say that the infamous bootloop issue has been addressed on those LG G4 manufactured in 2016, and those G4 have serial No. starting with 6xxxxxx, with HW version 1.1. for example, a G4 with serial No. 604xxx means that it was manufactured in April 2016.
I just wanted to get feedback from those with similar serial No. and HW version.

G3 has a similar problem that the battery is recharged so much and its performance goes below certain level, it reboots on and on. Try out with a brand new battery.

I had experienced the bootloop issue with my LG G4 previously as well. Looking into it online, I found out that the bootloop issue is a system glitch that LG had identified and recognized. There is unfortunately nothing you can do about it yourself. What you will have to do is send it in to LG, that's is what they told everybody with the bootloop issue to do and they will repair it free of cost. Hope this helps!
Has anyone with LG G4 that has MSN(Serial No.) 60xxxxxxxxx and HW version 1.1 experienced BOOTLOOP? Please, reply this message. The serial No. and HW version are written behind the battery, so pull it to see it.
Unexpectedly, my LG G4 has suddenly stopped working. I was on call with my husband and in between the call my phone just got hanged. I removed the battery and sim card to make sure the phone gets started without any hassle. But to my surprise the phone has stopped working completely in spite of the fact that it was 70% charged before this tragedy. I read about boot loop which is a common problem in this phone. I used this phone for nearly one and a half year and it was my favorite phone ever. Any suggestions please what should i do now???
"If your LG G4 turns itself off unexpectedly, then gets caught in bootup, refusing to actually make it to the Android homescreen, it sounds like you may have the LG G4 bootloop issue.
It effectively bricks your phone, even though it isn't a software issue Â– which is what usually turns your handset into a useless slab of plastic. The cause of the problem has been confirmed as a fault in the soldering of one of the connectors on the device's main board."
