I have had this phone approximately 20 months for now. On 16th months my phone suddenly stopped working. All signs refer to the infamous bootloop issue. Unfortunately, LG is a very unreliable company in such cases. Instead to take responsibility and repair the phone or replace with new one their so-called official service partners focus on the search for excuses to revoke the warranty. It's very annoying. Otherwise, this device has some quite good features like pixel dense vivid screen, radio and IR port, capable cameras on both sides, and micro SD card support up to 256 GB and phone jack of course. Also, the overall design is unique and the same time pleasing.
Biggest cons IMO are lack fingerprint reader, outdated OS. Also, battery life leaves to wish for better.
This phone may be old, but for someone like me who's coming from one of the worst budget phones ever made the LG G4 feels like a dream. A friend (who happens to have the same phone) recommended the G4 to me due to it's high res screen, big storage options and phenomenal camera. I can just say that she was right about all of those things, 32GB of space + a 32GB SD Card is perfectly fine for me, I never have to worry about running out of space again, the 3GB of RAM is handy with multitasking, the QHD screen looks AMAZING to me, colors are vibrant and it's bright too! Battery life is not the absolute best, but it's not bad either, and again, coming from an LG Leon which had a 1900mAh battery notrious for being, well, shit, this is a huge upgrade for me. I'll probably keep this phone for 2-3 years until it comes completely unusable, then I'll upgrade to the LG GX series phone of the time. The fact a phone from 2015 is still kicking ass in 2017 and soon to be 2018 is impressive. Nice work LG!
For those wondering, mine is the 51xxx serial number so luckily the whole bootloop plague won't affect me.
I really like the hardware on this phone (luckily no bootloop yet). Replaceable battery is fantastic. However, no Android software or security updates since Sep/16 means this phone get riskier to use everyday. Multiple messages to LG, posts to their Twitter and Facebook pages requesting a bootloader unlock procedure so I can update as I want have been ignored. This policy continues with their new phones. This company does not deserve your business.
Ali, 25 Dec 2017Hi, I have looked at the serial number, it startswith 357.... is this serial number ok or not?, That sounds like the beginning numbers to the IMEI number please don't post the whole number.
The serial number should be on the box as I don't remember seeing it on the sticker under the battery.
I have LG G4, but experiences signal issue usually. When dail a contact number, " Emergency call only" option is appeared on screen, even with full signal. Any solution to this problem please.

My LG G4 finally broke down..I believe its the boot loop issue..price for repairing a factory defect is a staggering 13,000 pesos exclusive of labor and diagnostic fee😰😡

Ali, 20 Dec 2017I have bought LGG4 H815 (global version) on ebay, brand new in october, 2017, since that time ... moreCheck the serial number, if it starts with 50x you better be worried. If it starts with 51x you might have to worry and if it starts with 6xx you should be fine.
I have bought LGG4 H815 (global version) on ebay, brand new in october, 2017, since that time I have been using it, but I have not faced any problem, it is a great mobile in features, but the quality, as too many people talk about is of low quality, that is a big concern,which it may suffer from bootlooping after one year of continous usage, so far mine is running very well for more than two and half months.
KLB, 15 Dec 2017Mine Boot looped today. There's a law suit in the works. Google LG G4 law suitSeriously save your energy just suck it up and get a new phone.
