pino, 28 May 2013was it paid apps or apps with adds? apps with adds should simply be avoided because the add... moreSadly, I have to admit they were free apps. Puzzles games for when you are sitting all day in a hospital waiting room as I was today. I agree completely with Piano and Bobby. Most people are responsible themselves for today's phones problems. Yet they are so quick to badmouth the phone . My 4x is my 5th smartphone and the best. Came from Nokia. All got great battery life except n900 my next favorite.
Bran, 28 May 2013As I undestand from the comments this phone is full of problems so it might not be much recommendedno theres lots of people calling out problems thats not really a problem.
most problems are created by the use because they install crappy apps or disable stuff that shouldnt be disabled.
there is no hardware issue with this phone and every feature works as intended (atleast on 4.03 i have not updated and will nog because there is no need on v10h).
the only problem i have with this phone is that the screen seems to shrink haha.
at first you think WOW its massive but you get used to it so fast you want bigger and bigger :P
the video and foto focus issue never was a issue as you could simply download 1 of many camera apps and they would work fine. but its since bin fixed on the build in also.
the camera sounding like there is something lose in it isnt a hardware foult its the actualy lens that should be moving to focus and its only noticible if you knock the phone which is a stupid thing to do anyway :)
and every other problem there is had a cause or reason that is explainable and not the phones fault :)
everyone talking this phone down doesnt own it havent handled it or owns a galaxy s3 or onex and are upset they payed 100 to 300 bucks more for a phone with the same capabilities but a worse screen. if your unsure go to the store reboot it and try it out its smooth (no jellybean needed) its stable apart from some launcher redraws but that takes less then a second and isnt a bad thing per se (clears some ram) and it has more free ram then the competition which means less is preloaded resulting in less cpu cycles needed for actions which in turn is better for the battery.
the only reaso i want other phones is because i want a bigger screen otherwise im more then happy with my 4x hd :)
and everyone wants better batterytime but in reality the only way to get that is getting a smaller screen and going back to 800 mhz single core.
fast soc's = huge power drain its a fact of life.
just put a powerpack in your backpack or jacker and you have a portable 20.000mah or even 50.000mah battery with you to charge on the go.
i bought a 20.000 mah version vor 12 euro which should give me over 30 hours screen on time (wanted it for when i go carp fishing :P)
4X HD User, 28 May 2013For how many of users, power button screen wake up is not working first time... you have to pr... morei have it ocationaly at random but i know this occurs more often when you click it twice fast.
this seems to turn the screen off before its even on and causes a issue with clicking the 3rd time (adds a delay).
overall its not a biggy.
i did notice that after a 16 day no reboot of the phone the phone became sluggish inclusing a slowdown in screen activation and a rebot fixes it obviously.
so if you never reboot your phone your wise to sometimes reboot it just because it keep the phone up to speed.
Bran, 28 May 2013As I undestand from the comments this phone is full of problems so it might not be much recommendedActually phone is probable best value for money phone there is.Everybody will find faults with any phone .even the most expensive iPhone has problems!
You will always get people asking about things there phone has done or not done some are phone problems and some are app problems. Also unfortunately most people slagging off a device usually don't own one and probably have never even seen one . So be careful what you accept as the truth
As a lot is just hear say or Chinese whispers based on reviews written a longtime ago on devices with very old software that has been updated a lot since the articles where published but articles never get updated!!
As I undestand from the comments this phone is full of problems so it might not be much recommended
For how many of users, power button screen wake up is not working first time... you have to press it 2 3 times to wake screen
krassi, 28 May 2013If I uninstall bad app does it leave something behind?or are all problem caused by it solved?some apps seem to leave some files behind if these files are data like use stats or actual active files that change someting in the phone is hard to say.
youd thing it wont leave any active files on the phone but if it does i think they should ban the app from the play store.
sadly this is near impossible to test without doing a lot of hard resets of the phone.
If I uninstall bad app does it leave something behind?or are all problem caused by it solved?
Russel, 28 May 2013Hello everyone. I had a strange problem develop with my 4x. I would normally use 15-20% of bat... morewas it paid apps or apps with adds?
apps with adds should simply be avoided because the adds drain battery as they constantly loads new adds.
also free adds often are bad apps specialy if they do not have a paid version.
if your rooted you could look for an app that blocks acces to some features in your phone like the internet if they dont need it.
i use a cheapass tablet to test apps if they cause issues like battery drain or preventing deep sleep.
if they run without issue on the tablet only then i install them on my phone :)
Hello everyone. I had a strange problem develop with my 4x. I would normally use 15-20% of battery through the day with the way I have it set up and my normal use. Overnight battery lose would be 2-3%. Then overnight lost became 20-25% with phone on standby. I usually check that all apps are closed,ect before bed. I checked everything I could think of but the problem continued. Through the day it was normal. What was different? All I could think of was I had downloaded several simple game apps. I uninstalled them and problem was solved. Battery lost is now back to 1-3% over night.
Are the auto-focus and screen brightness setting problems resolved with the update?
What is going on here. It use to be a good forum. Now it's just stupid questions and people moaning about fly sh*t! For the price this phone is great. For more cash u can probably get a better phone but every phone has its faults some bigger than others. This used to be a place to fix our thanks to good people like pino
Krix, 26 May 2013does this LG supports WhatsApp Messenger?I guess that it's not true that there is no stupid questions. :)
Krix, 26 May 2013does this LG supports WhatsApp Messenger?ofcourse why wouldnt it?
