Got bootloop on G4 H815 / 506, the service denied repair due to unlocked bootloader. I understand that the warranty is void, on the other hand there is a detailed description on the site which claims which issues MAY NOT be covered by the warranty. It means, the warranty is still partially available. Will try to kick their ass. Otherwise all fooled users should start world-wide company against LG: spamming all reviews, sites and forums about how LG "fixed" this fault.
Why don't they recall the lgg4 if everyone has the same problem. Makes no sense the reboot issue just happened to me. I have to get a new phone lose all my pictures because nothing is working. I'm glad I'm not the only one. My bf said it was bc I toss it on the beds or w.e but I've been having issues with this phone since the marshmallow update. Do all LGS do this ? Or is just T-Mobile ?
mahmin, 03 Jun 2016is your phone working smooth now? what was problem in ur phoneI've got the same problem as yours and I had it in just less than a year. The unit just all of a sudden turned black-out while I am using it. Thingking of what was wrong and what happened? I tried to reboot but it lightens up only until the LG icon intro comes out then black-out again or no display. Have to bring it to mobile company for service and after 3 weeks of waiting, LG service center said that there is no parts available for the said unit. I was so surprised and anxious of the answer since how come no parts available since this model was just out late last year. I tried to inquire and seek further for their explanation since it didnt even fell out my hands. But no direct reply has been made. So i am waiting still for a real answer and up to when they can fix my LG g4:'(
I bought LG G4 in September last year.
Sometimes it freez & most of the time when the phone is on "i can't received phone is switch off"
I have to switch off & restart!!! 2 of my friends got the same problem. What i have to do??
IT'S NOT AMAZING WHEN YOU ARE IN BUUSSINESS.
Anonymous, 04 Jun 2016IMHO IPS LCD is not the reason behind the bad battery efficiency its useless 2K Resolution whi... moreNo; amoled has never been and never be BRIGHTER than lcd screen; brightest amoled screen is still s6 that has 560 nits brightness(s7 drops down to 480 nits),anyway its still much bellow lcd brightness on sony and iphone with over 700 nits! And brightness is not resolution so we can easily see even the 20 nits brightness difference.

AMOLEDs are power efficient,vibrant and brighter than LCDs but they have serious issue of Burn in.
Jmnashnt, 01 Jun 2016I recovered the update, thank you. Im not feeling any improvements in battery or heating so ma... moreMy friend, 5 hours of screen is good but I discovered some problems with this phone. Firstly the phones mainboard is sensitive to high temperatures, so if you try to use your phone with always screen on and GPS on it will overheat very shortly. Soon or late all G4's will face with bootloop problem. If you just take of your phone and avoid it from overheating this will just happen late. But of course this is my oppinion. Other problem is, these quantum IPS screen definitely have a "ghost screen" problem and this is not reversable.. It is better to take you money back from quarantee and buy LG G5. Whatever happens with LG G4 in my oppinion LG is producing the most usefull phones on market. Improvable memory, replaceable battery, high quality camera and IPS screen are always benefits of LG. Regards..
I used to love lg .. .i had lg g2 and lg optimus g pro and lg g3 and now i have lg g4 .....g4 is sucks ....keep reeboting it self ......so big in the hand large pizzle size and alot of issues......it is a fast phone but it has alot of crashes like keyboard crash or screen freez and the knock code or knock on barely work 1 of 5 times to work.....i give the lg g4 2 of 5
V10 Camera Ported to G4:
With this apk your G4 camera will become V10 camera
That means it brings Manual video mode
I tested with my friend`s Phone (not mine cuz i have V10)
and it worked well on his phone
Read the instruction carefully,Im not responsible for a thing
it depends where you bought it. i had 5 lg g4 until now and except battery backup non of them had any problems and now i have one too and love it
for sure i dont like battery back up at all but there no other dual sim phone like this in my country
Pros.: One of best cameras ever.
Conta.:Low backup battery may be a problem.
LG phones are the worst. I had a G2 previously, its touch sensor suddenly stopped responding in different spots. This time i bought a G4 and it just turned off suddenly and now only keeps on restarting again and again. I did some research on internet and found that it is a serious issue with G4s and this particular problem is called "Bootloop".
I got this phone almost 1 year ago.
This is an amazing phone.
Last month the phone stops booting up. It hang on the LG logo screen.
Then I contacted LG service center and after checking the guy said that the PCB needs to be changed. He changed the PCB and handed over back the device to me in appx. 1 hour. Awesome phone and awesome service by LG.
I got this phone almost a year ago and today it has decided to not turn back on and it won't even charge. I've never had a phone do this before and I'm beyond upset. Sprint basically told me I had no choice but to either add a line and suspend this one or wait 3 days for a new one. Other then that to bad. I have to have my phone for work.
Apart from the bootloop, which as i read doesnt happen in models manufacturered after September 2015. The mobile is great with the only issue of battery life which is worse than similar Samsung S6 or HTc or Nexus 5x because the screen isnt amoled display.
GKTRK, 31 May 2016It didn't deleted my data but it is better to take a backup of your data. Faulty update is not... moreI recovered the update, thank you. Im not feeling any improvements in battery or heating so maybe that was just me and the mobile is normal.
And im getting 5 hours of screen on time. Is that a good number?
