I purchased the G4 when it first came out last year....big mistake should have waited for the reviews. Has a great camera but the battery life sucks and it constantly freezes. I'm on my second replacement.... and needless to say it died on me earlier today. The screen is stuck on the LG logo. I will not be purchasing another. Too much money and too many problems.
Had this phone for 1 year and 1/2 and it finally stopped working. The phone simply does not want to boot anymore.
Is LG G4 still affected by the bootloop issue??? Huawei Mate S v/s LG G4...which one would you recommend???
happened to visit GSM ARENA and was surprised to see negative reviews.G4 is one of the best handsets i have ever used.
I see the negative comments but after owning one for a year now, knock on wood, I dont have any issues what so ever. No boot loops no errors nothing. Works perfectly fine even after updates. Couldn't be happier.

I have had 3 replacements between 24 December 2015 through August 13, 2016. The same issue the phone shuts off, comes on to the LG logo with a sacarstic comment, 'LIFE IS GOOD' when the phone's life is NOT.
LG just needs to recall all the G4s and replace them with the G5. Same hardware/software failure with phones manufactured before and after the release date. They will continue to replace motherboards/software and count on the devices holding up after the 12 month warranty.
When they do replace the returned phones, the replacement sent to YOU has a 90 day warranty, so if the phone dies again after 90 days , you better have over $200 to take a gamble and purchase a phone from another manufacturer.
I was never a fan of iPhones, but I am beginning to lean towards an iPhone after seeing how many Android phones from ALL manufacturers have a short shelf life compared to Apple, and how they continue to patch up the failed phone sent in for service to return to you with a short 90 days warranty.
Google Nexus is a better Android choice, but, I am not impressed with the reviews for the camera and you can't add a memory card to back up your pictures when you are low on cloud space or in a location where there is limited or no data or the phone just took a dive in water.
The BEST alternative is a Samsung, but again, Samsung's and LG's downside is the bloatware and they are very slow and if there is an Android OS update 3x in 3 years you are only lucky to get ONE. Apple will update your OS up to 4x over 4 year annual OS updates.
Horriblem battery back up. Please dont use this phone at all & waste your money in this.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to express my frustration.
Rodrigo, 13 Aug 2016Hi people! I'm planing to buy a new phone (coming from S4) and im undecided between Galaxy S5,... morePlease don't buy LG G4, it has a serious boot loop issue that can really get you annoyed.
