i wanna buy this phone... does it still have the boot loop problem???
I came across this site and I thought I'd post my experience. I think the LG G4 is a great phone. I have the LS991 for Sprint, and I use it for Freedompop. After the latest Sprint update (ZVC), the phone has much better battery life, and I went back to using the stock battery and back instead of an extended battery.
Also, I wanted to let others know that I got the boot loop issue in July after buying the phone off ebay in January. I thought I'd give LG a shot at repairing it out of warranty, or at least I could turn down an expensive repair. I sent it in (proof of purchase was "bought on ebay") and within a couple of days, they were sending it back to me with a new motherboard! It didn't cost me a cent, not even the initial shipping because they sent a label. So, try them first, before giving it up. It works great now!

There is no certain model affected by it . Just to be safe before u buy it , remove the plastic back and battery and the the s/n aka serial number . Try to avoid those starting with 505 in serial number because those were most affected by it. Some said this can go up to 512 but most faulty devices were with 505 s/n . For instance I have h815 international version but with 508 s/n and I had no problems on it. I would avoid s5 and note 4 if I were u because of that plastic edge that is going to get nasty in time and your phone will look rubbish when u will try to sell it and u will hardly get any buyers for a bad looking phone.

I have read and heard a lot of good words about performance of LG G4 (exspecially of its camera) but in the recent coments i have heard about the "bootloop" problem. Can u say to me which models are afected with this problems? Or this is an issue fo all models and i have to put out LG G4 from my list?

Still the greatest LG made..That display is a real problem.. The audio through headphones and amplifier has incredible volume..Definitely one of the loudest.. Why did LG have to spoil the audio with the G5.. Its really not loud over headphones... LG u need to bring it back....FEEL THE GREAT SEE THE GREAT
Kambing lapar, 22 Jun 2016Most of lg haters are trolling here...DN WORY GUYS GO N BUY LG G4....BEST PHONE EVER! Dn belie... moreNo. We aren't LG haters. I've been an LG fan for a long time, and purchased several of their phones. I loved all of them... Until this nightmare called G4. They suck. They bootloop. They overheat, charge is shut, mobile data connection is worse than horrible. I'm on my second replacement..bootloop issue is taken care of..but all the other issues are still there. I'm not saying I'll never but LGs again, but the way they have handled the issue with the G4s is disappointing. A factory recall would have been more than appropriate.
