Anonymous, 11 Mar 2017a lot of people have been disappointed by bootlooping phones, and even though LG has recognize... moreHere's the issue comparison of G4 to Note 7
G4: LG did take a bit of time to recognize and take responsibility, to which they had the CARRIERS identify and estimate by reports the serial range of devices effected. Then did a recall of all devices in the estimated serial range, by carrier. Which could easily explain why you had a bunch of trouble, your device may have not been in the range given by your carrier. These kind of recalls are not uncommon, not really best practice for consumers, but not uncommon.
Note 7: After multiple reports of minor phone bursts, Samsung took some notice, no recall. It was not until after the device was burning cars out, houses down, getting banned from airlines, carriers and some countries, that Samsung finally fully recalled the device. Then the replacements, ended up with the same issue, to which the recall allowed them (dependent on carrier) to choose another Samsung device or equivalent phone.
My G4 experience went as such...1st bootlooped after 1 year, I sent it in, got a new one in 3 days. After 1 week, replacement bootlooped...turned out the replacement was also in the recall serial line of my carrier, called back, got a prompt apology from a manager, then they sent me a V10 free of charge, which is still going to this day. A radically different experience.
Funnily if you leave samsung's flagships, and go to their mid range or offshoot devices, the customer support experience is dreadful. I had a Samsung Captivate Glide (a Galaxy S2 offshoot with a physical keyboard). The battery swelled (this has been a long running issue with Samsung...excessive battery swell) popped off the back and im out the battery (wasn't many third party options for this device). Called, and was refused a new one, as they just suspected water damage, wanted me to pay for an entire new device, when all I asked for was a battery. Radically different experience.
What still stands is, the Bootloop issue was a G4 problem. The rest of the devices that are claimed still remain under normal defective device levels in terms of number of reports. Thereby, people need to stop bootlooping themselves around it on every device...if it becomes a problem, we will know.
I want to buy dual sim model H990DS, someone please confirm if the sim2 is 2G only or go in 3G. Thank you.
Walliut, 11 Mar 2017Hey, you miss something important ! The g4 had a boot loop issue, the problem was that the pho... morea lot of people have been disappointed by bootlooping phones, and even though LG has recognized the problem some people have been getting free repairs, and some have not. I am in the latter group. This problem is very similar to the RROD problem Microsoft had with the first generation of Xbox 360, and even they were quick to abandon trying to repair the PCB and moved to a complete console replacement. It's obvious a suit at the head of LG's mobile division has calculated the cost of recalling and replacing the phones will be greater than the cost of lost customers.
I'm also getting terrible treatment from my LG service center despite already giving them money. I actually wasn't that upset that my phone bootlooped because I got a chance to get all the data off it. My attitude has since changed since visiting the LG service center *multiple* times now. I wish I took the money I gave to them to repair my phone and just put that towards buying a completely new phone now.
It's interesting because up until last month I've been using LG phones for the last 3.5 years now and been nothing but a fan up to this point. That's all changed now and it's not because of a defective phone but how their service center has handled it. They could have made it right and made me an even more loyal LG customer. They chose not to.

The g4 had a boot loop issue, the problem was that the phone won't boot up. They actually recognize it (take a while but they repair for free now). Its not even close to the note 7 issue. That dam thing explode in you face or could burn down your house while you are a sleep. Don't mix things up. They had no choice then did a recall

After seeing how Samsung handled the Note 7 recall it actually gives me a lot more confidence to buy Samsung knowing they will do the right thing even if it costs them billions. Can't say the same for LG unfortuately.

Have a nice day

So by counting every one, if we want to be fair we have to then look at every other device from every manufacturer's defect level problems.

Cindy, 20 Feb 2017May I know LG V20 is great? Because I want to buy between LG G5 or LG V20, but still confuse.Please go for LG v20, it is very much better

So I could reason that since the end of the drive is hot, its an issue within the port, most likely a bad pin connection, which ends up drawing more power, thus more heat, through the converter heating it up as well.
I've just bought V20, it's really great in performance, very sensitive finger print sensor, tough built, good screen display, good sounds. And yes it's using type-c usb port.
Already try to plug micro usb OTG thumb drive using micro usb to type-c converter, accessed it for just around 5-10 minutes, the converter already hot! Also the tip of my thumb drive.
Anyone got the same problems with me? What could be the problem? Thanks.

Pink colour is available on a very healthy discount rate on Amazon! And my wife would love that colour! I'm aware of bootloop issues in previous models, is it still there in v20? What would you advise, is it worth to buy?
That's the best phone. because it's ram is very fast and takes a good pictures and I am using 3gb of game in it and even it does not hang.

While the glass is a larger piece and more susceptible to focal pressure, it hasn't become the "shattergate"(horrible name) that some people assumed it would be.
