Worst buy ever. Phone was great. Then boot loop happened. $375 gone to waste. Over heats like crazy. LG should refund users their money. Selling this product is a scam.
This is great phone for the ones who know how to modifiy a rom.
The big problem with this phone is bootloop ( as allready know) but with 3 h time you can resolve it.
Stock soft + a little program will resolve bootloop but you will only work in 1 cpu.
Root it very easy ( 3 minutes maximum if you know what to do) and then with a little program called CPU tuner you will have all cores working on full power.
This is a great phone, great camera , great specs. I bought it even I knew about this problem.
Have fun with yours !
Air, 05 Jan 2017z3 or lg g4?anything but g4. Too many issues, low quality electronics and poor manufacturing controls I suppose
bootloop problem, I did not recommend anyone to buy this LG model .. already suffer from this problem ... my LG G2 (rooted, bootloader unlock, xposed) still life strongly while the G4 already death. Using G5 right now but still doubtful that this problem will haunting this new G series.
I would not recommend this phone, unless you plan to switch phones in a year anyway.
I had this phone for 11 months and it is stuck on bootloop and LG refuses to fix it under warranty, because it has physical damage (some scratches on the side). In addition to this, 3 of my friends have the same exact issue after an year of owning the phone. It would need a new motherboard, which one of my friends decided to swap and surprise-surprise after 6 months it was stuck on bootloop again.
I want to buy Lg G4 for its cemra quality and battery life...Should i buy it or not bcz some people are taulking about bootloop problem

Don't bother with this phone. Mine is stuck in bootloop and repairs cost is more than a new handset.
A Bootloop is where a device doesnt get into the operating system, but instead, just tries to boot over and over again, but failing.
AnonD-481508, 14 Jan 2017lol its the same g4 to v20 its lg not matched with cheap accessoriesNo, it's not the same. Don't make stuff up, it reeks of desperation.
I think this bootloop issue in LG phones are around since the early days. Because G4 is not the only phone I heard this issue of, LG optimus G was also infected of this bootloop problem.
Dom, 14 Jan 2017This 'USB' nonsense is for the V20 bootloop issue, not the G4 bootloop. Or so LG claims. lol its the same g4 to v20 its lg not matched with cheap accessories
Anonymous, 02 Jan 2017what do say about bootloop issue it hasdo u replace the battery and checked ?
AnonD-481508, 12 Jan 2017Use specific and original usb type not the cheap one then you safe from the crap bootloopThis 'USB' nonsense is for the V20 bootloop issue, not the G4 bootloop. Or so LG claims.
I had an LG G4 H815 in the US. It went into bootloop the 365th day of use.
Bought from B&H and they could not get LG US, LG international, or any repair center to fix or replace it. I really liked the phone and the features, but LG has really dropped the ball with this one in a major way. I'm now looking for a new phone....
By the way, if you have a G4 make sure you back up everything. I lost a lot of files (all cardboard panoramas were not beeing backed up as well as texts, settings, preference etc.)
I hate to sound dumb but what is boot loop? I've had my LGG4 since march 2016 and haven't had a problem until today. I unplugged it from the charger and went to use it when all of a sudden it shut off and now it will not turn back on. Battery was fully charged. Phone wasn't hot. What the crap??
AnonD-237389, 07 Jan 2017Z3 without thinking. I have a G4 bought july 2015...Best phone i have ever used... Better than daughters samsung and sons htc
.they all have had problems
My G4 has been perfect from day one....cheers
