My G2 was fixed twice under warranty, and another time b/c of a broken screen.

Is it just me or does LG make phones that are aesthetically pleasing and just flat out sexy-as-hell, but are completely unreliable and very easily broken?

I replaced my G2 with a Samsung S5 and HATE it; it always freezes, butt dials and launches apps even when lock screen activated. But I'm am afraid of getting another LG phone (and damn that G5 is the sechs) and I'm not about to get a Samsung S6 or S7.

Bought my G3 used back in September 2015. Nary a problem. Sounds pretty ymmv, which seems par for every mfg out there.

Yeah I don't blame them or anything, things break, its just damn annoying. I guess it could have been a lot worse seeing that it could have broke after the 1yr warranty and yet still owe money on it.
What ticked me off most is that they were going to give me a flip phone as a loaner... Thankfully my Nexus5 works, but the battery wont last more than 2hrs, thats me running it bare.
I will say this, 5.5" screen is the max size id go. Having a 5" screen back in my hands feels really nice. I was playing around with the LG G5 while at the store, 5.3" is the perfect fit (pending bezel/screen ratio) for my hands.

Just don't get a Sprint LG device ever... So many quiet recalls were done. The G4 had an almost 80% failure rate on Sprint.

Meh, still rocking an LG built Google Nexus 4. Runs like a champ and the only thing to break was my fault(I have it in a nice rearth fusion case, but dropped it and it fell screen down on a pebble). But, easily repaired and it's going strong otherwise.

My G4 stopped working just after Christmas. Not even 6 months old. I use it at work a lot and there is a lot of moisture there. Was sent to LG and they would not repair or replace it. They said there was too much corrosion on the back of the screen and board.
It is always in an Otter box and I never got it truly what I would call wet.
I had iPhones that seen more water and snow than my babied G4.
Lesson learned. Thank God for insurance.

My lady still has her G4, it's been a good phone. I use the IR blaster to turn the TV off when it's time to sleep

YaY! I got it back last night, pretty quick turn around. They replaced the whole innards, only the casing is my original. Question, forgot to ask this while at carriers kiosk, seeing that the IMEI number has changed do you think I need to unlock my phone once again? Or do you think it carries over? Ill contact them tmo but just wondering if any of you know first hand.

The only thing i miss from my nexus was the size, it just fitted into my hand nicely. Tho man i miss the G4, so quick and i also love the UI.

OK, OK....you mofos talked me into it

I thought I was going to get a G5 sometime this month, but after comparing the specs and forming the opinion that I don't think the G5 is worth $340 more than the G4, I'll be picking up my G4 this morning


also grabbed an otterbox defender for ten bucks from the att store. not a fan of the extra bulk (i like the commuter and symmetry models better) but ten bucks is ten bucks for a damn good phone case

I'm loving my HTC m10! I do like the modular design, but if I want modular, I would then want Project Ara, when that supposedly comes out this year.

So nice to have my old phone back... omg.
I was playing around with the G5, i reallllly like the design and fit and finish. I think that size is perfect for me, esp once you add a case. The G4 is a dream to hold, love the feel, bare tho... once i put on a case it becomes a bit too clumsy feeling, thats with a minimalistic as well.

I just wished it had 1080p slow-mo along with being able to view slow-mo once exported to other devices/services without having to edit it. TBH thats my biggest complaint with the phone

So about this LG G5...

What the hell chat application do I use for text messages? Google Voice? Hangouts? Messenger? LG's Messaging app? There's something called Allo on its way? What the hell?

My lady's G4 got replaced under warranty recently, it randomly started boot looping and getting hot while doing it. Sometimes you could get it to start Android, but it never stayed running for more than a few minutes. Of course, the first replacement got lost in UPS's system, so we had to order a second one, but her replacement G4 is good.

My son's phone died after he dropped it a second time. Gave him my G2...went to AT & T and looked at the HTC M9, G5 and G4. Fell in love with the G4. Gorgeous screen...great features. Camera is incredible. Decided on it, because the G5 was over $300 more (AT & T marked G4 to $358). Read all the reviews and downsides to the phone...it stays cool all the time and I don't game on the phone...so best choice for me.

Are warranty replacements time-bombed, or tied to the original owner? Been considering getting a used G4, but only if I'm covered if the bootloop issue exhibits.
