G4 is really such a disappointment. I used mine for almost 6 mos only because of that boot loop issue.
Bootloop finally came to my g4 with serial no start with 509, glad I have 8 months of usage, and lost all my precious photos, no more lg for me
[deleted post]I do have one H815 variant and it went into bootloop after 10 months of usage.
My LG G4 was a birthday gift from my Mrs, "I would never get this phone" means "I would never get this phone".
Stop spamming on stopping other G4 users posting their experience.
mohamed ashraf, 19 Sep 2016are you sure that if i buy the h818 variant now it won't have the bootloop issue????There's no guarantee mate, especially this phone. And the problem is not the variant, it's the serial number, majority of bootloop phone have serial number starts with 505 to 509 (first digit is the last digit of year manufactured, then the two digits are manufacturing months). However if you google it even serial number starts with 601 has bootloop issue reported.
One user here will tell you there is no problem, but all other users will tell you don't get this phone. Google g4 bootloop and you will see.
If you insist to get one, recommendation is:
1. Get an EXPENSIVE G4 from proper retail outlet that comes with 24 months warranty, and make sure it will cover bootloop issues. Do not get it on internet, most don't come with warranty.
2. Do not root or unlock the bootloader, LG will void your warranty.
3. Continuously sync your data on cloud as back up to prepare bootloop comes up anytime.
4. Have a back up mobile phone so you still can use it when the G4 dies.
IMHO, it just not worth it. I prefer reliability, I would never get this phone...

Reynel, 18 Sep 2016I got no issue with my G4 lol I love my phone you just don't know how to take care of it its ... moreThe versions which wre released in 2015 had issues the ones released in 2016 hav this issue resolved so dnt worry. Phones with serial number in 5 series and build number 1.0 hav issues, if u hav a newer phone in 6 series and build versio 1.1, ur good to go as i am already using one and i came to this conclusion after studying alot on net. Haters gonna hate G4 as it is an S6 killer

Give it a few more months, then you can come back here and we'll give you a shoulder to cry on when it bootloops. Also, searching 'bootloop' is easy, that's what the internet is for.

rvn, 16 Sep 2016please reply.. i bought my lg g4 h815t from amazon sellerbeforei becameaware about the bootloo... moreAwkward. Maybe it was a bootlooped G4 which was already repaired or replaced already by LG.
Some owners are so turned off from LG after bootloop so they just sell the phone when it comes back as its pretty much a new or almost new phone coming back.

WTH is a bootloop? I didn't encounter that problem with my G4
please reply.. i bought my lg g4 h815t from amazon sellerbeforei becameaware about the bootloop issue.. the serial number in phone sticker(507...) and in the box(510...) do not match but same imei.. what could it mean?
I have my LG G4 for 9 months now, and never had any serious issues like bootloop problem. Only had issues when I upgraded mine to marshmallow, in which other applications were not functioning and I have to update all applications and reset all the preferences. Marshmallow upgrade is not that bad, actually it is great as long as you overcome those problems I said. My unit is working perfectly fine after updating all applications and granting permission when using 3rd party applications. LoL ez mmr
Very disappointed. Less than a year with the LG G4 and the boot loo problem. I tried getting it fixed and carrier said LG wouldn't fi it because the screen was cracked. The screen cracked at least 10 months ago. Anyway, I emailed LG and they wanted to charge me $150 for fiing a phone that was on warranty. All I wanted was boot loop issue fixed.
Plus, if you call they leave you on hold and my emails aren't answered anymore.
Horrible product, worse customer service.
Gkm, 13 Sep 2016Buy the phone from your provider and you should be good. LG has committed to fix the bootloop ... moreMy G4 got into bootloop 3 weeks back(after 14 months. mine was a international phone with 1 yr warranty already expired. still they replaced my phone which i received today exactly after 2 weeks they received.The customer care person tld there is another kind of warranty which coves for 15months and based on that they can replace it , it seems. i havent opened it yet. hopefully its not a faulty one
I purchased G4 a year ago - serial #505 (yes, just a few days out of warranty). It was a very good phone, but the bootloop just kicked in and now it is a brick. I guess I am fortunate to have had 1 year of use. Do not think you are out of the woods because it is working now, or has worked for a few weeks.
