LG G4 is undoubtedly one of the most amazing smartphones we have come across, despite not packing the fastest processor in town simply because of heating issues, the phone comes with enough firepower to satisfy the users. However, the phone does come with a fair share of issues. But that’s not surprising considering how almost every phone that is released nowadays is plagued with issues, be it a Samsung or an iPhone.
Lucky for the LG G4 users, the issues aren’t that much of a trouble at the start, however, if you encounter any of them; we can tell you how to resolve them. Take a look at the list of problems you can f ace with your G4 and their potential fixes.
Overheating issue isn’t all that new for LG; the predecessor to G4 was also plagued by this issue but that was mainly because the QHD screen wasn’t as optimised as it should have been. The issue is back in G4, despite not being as crucial as the one in LG G3, the issue makes phone overheat to an uncomfortable level. Considering how this issue depends on several normal and abnormal factors, finding the perfect fix is almost as hard as finding a needle in a haystack, but you can still checkout some of the fixes that can easily be implemented to help with the overheating issue.
- Switch to power-saving mode when you feel like your device has started to heat up, this will throttle the processor and will help the phone cool down.
- A good phone needs a good case, make sure the case you’re using isn’t too bulky or without any proper airflow.
- If your phone is overheating to an uncomfortable extent, stop using it for a short duration of time till it’s completely cooled down.
- If you downloaded an app from an untrusted source, that app might be causing the issues. Uninstall that app and see if that resolves it for you.
Some users are experiencing slow charging on the LG G4 than expected, while there are users who are having issues using phone’s quick charging abilities. The problem is quite simple actually, the phone ships with Qualcomm’s QuickCharge 2.0, however, it has been reported that the bundled charger that comes with the phone does not support QuickCharge 2.0. That is the reason several users are reporting slow charging, it can be overcame easily by simply buying an OEM charger that supports QuickCharge 2.0.
- If that doesn’t help, try charging the phone with flight mode on, this works for everyone.
- Another report tells us that the phone will charge significantly faster if you charge it with the screen off.
According to some users who get their hands on the first batch of the smart phone have been reporting screen issues on the phone, this issue mainly resides in the touch screen, it’s pretty self-explanatory; the screen doesn’t register touches as it should and there are some sensitivity issues as well. Our sources tell that LG is currently working on the fix. However, to make sure that the screen is fine, check out some of the potential workarounds.
- Open the dialer and dial 277634#*# or 3845#*Model# (The model will be model number of your phone; 811, 815 as such). Go to Device Test > Service Menu > Manual Test > Touch Draw Test > Manual. You can now touch the screen on different places to see if everything is working fine. You can also download any touch screen testing apps from Play Store as an alternative.
- For those who are having issues with the entire screen being unresponsive, it is suggested to get your device replaced under warranty.
Notification LED Issue
Users throughout the forums have been reporting that the notification LED on LG G4 randomly starts blinking even when there is no unread notification. Reports have also surfaced that the issue persists sometimes even when you dismiss the notification.
- Luckily, the issue has been around here for quite some time now and an XDA user found a workaround, do keep in mind that it isn’t the official way to fix the issue but it works. Simply go to this thread and follow the steps.
- Some users have found that individual apps are behaving abnormally, removing the app can fix the issue but then again, you might need the app in near future.
