I have had almost every reported issue with my LG G4 since I purchased it a year ago. First it was the bootloop (which was covered under warranty). Next was some touchscreen issue where the phone refuses to "wake up" no matter what I do; tap, swipe, power button, etc. I have found the fastest way to get the screen on is to plug in the power supply or pull the battery and restart. Now I am dealing with a new issue where I get the prompt's "unfortunately, camera has stopped" and/or "unfortunately, call has stopped". No telling what else will go wrong before I can upgrade through Sprint!
I've tried factory resets, firmware updates, safe mode startups, stopping the problem apps and clearing system cache's, and anything else I have been advised to do only to realize that this phone has a mind of it's own.
Needless to say, this will be my last LG product. I had a LG G3 prior that had touchscreen issues. I was hoping that all was worked out on the G4, but apparently not.
I'll buy a phone later or tomorrow and LG G4 is one of my choices, what serial no. should I get? What do I have to check or consider before buying it? Please help
How do I change the settings for incoming calls, I don't know who is calling me, always shows "unknown"
Even the 2016 models of G4 are facing bootloop problems. Check on reddit.

I do not experience any of the problems mentioned here, no bootloop, no freezing. It's a decent phone for one that came out over a year ago. So far I am more than satisfied.

But with the boothloop issues that clouds the G4. . I was prompted to read more user reviews. They say September 2015 units with HARDWARE revision 1.0 were commonly having boothloops. Succeeding units were safe from it. After reading your review. . I am now hesitant again..
Do not get this phone. Freezes and dies. I'm on my second and after1 month the same problem. Waiting for a Samsung in the mail. Don't think this one will last another2 days tho.I'm going to smash it with a hammer as soon as I can get my information off of it. A 550.00 piece of crap
I have been owning this phone since May 2015, it is giving me headache. Bootloop in 6 months and got it replaced with new unit, then no unlocked bootloader (I am using TWN unit) and the stock rom is laggy as hell. The V20E firmware is draining battery now I am getting 14 hrs max of normal usage.
I don't care if it gets Android 7.0 or not, LG needs the battery and circuit board problem first.

First digit shows year, next 2 show month. For example, if serial number starts with 505, it means the year is 2015 and the month is May. Buy the one that starts with 509, 510, or onwards.

V20, 08 Sep 2016Beware what? Stop spamming and trollingBecause of LG's history of poor quality control and customer service?
Dom, 08 Sep 2016Both are LG made, so buyer beware.Beware what?
Stop spamming and trolling
I love and hate it. The internal antenna leaves a little to be desired and it has some issues with overheating. I actually had to get it replaced due to it heating up to much. You can run into that with any phones at times. The camera is a plus and it functions well if you use a different launcher than the lg default. I have always been a nexus fan but strayed to see what lg had to offer. I would not strongly recommend it but can not say it has been a completely bad experience.
