I have a G4, it's definitely a good phone, but I also won the roulette because normally its motherboard gets fried after two years and I somehow dodged it for now. You'll want a more reliable phone.

What do you think?
I think you will have a device which would inevitably bootloop and you can't do anything about it.

I've had a G3 for 3 years now, it's a great (and cheap) phone. Good pajeet ROM support too.

Too expensive to be worth it. Alternatives aren't that much behind but have better prices.

Or a refurbished Note 7. IIRC there are some units that had the battery replaced with a S7 battery.

Got a second hand one a week ago for 120€. Could be better, watch out for battery hungry versions of the phone. Camera is 8/10, performance is 8,5/10. Overall is a great phone for me

Luke Reed

Literally this. I wanted a phone with good SoC, enough RAM for everything I need, good screen, better than normal audio quality, good camera, high repairability and swappable battery.

This is literally the only thing on the market that does that. If it would be 5,2-5,5 inch instead of 5,7 and would be waterproof without losing any of the thing I mentioned above it would be literally perfect phone.

And it's dirt fucking cheap right now.

shame, if it wasn't for LG's dumbshit bootlooping I'd look ingo the V20 to support them

curious, is the V30 any good?

John Parker
John Parker

I hold a strong opinion that LG G2 is their only good phone, but v30 seems decent if you're fine with crappy Android skins.

Benjamin Rivera

Good hardware ruined by horrible software. And either locked bootloader(in USA) or SOC with no documentation whatsoever(in Yurp).

Xavier Stewart

G4 was their last phone that had real bootlooping issue, the rest is just bad fame, that they got from G4 and V10. V30 is good, but for the kind of money they're askind for it it's not as good of a deal as V20.

Liam Jackson

And either locked bootloader(in USA) or SOC with no documentation whatsoever(in Yurp).
Not all the time, but I can relate to that with the S3 Mini VE. (Marvell chipset)

Ironically the normal S3 mini uses some Nova chipset nobody ever heard of it and yet it even got as far as Lollipop and Marshmallow in CM software.

Their old phones were relatively open, new ones are locked to hell.

I really liked the G3 while I had it. These days I've got a Pixel II, which I fucking love. Botnet or no, Google does a great job.

At least get the G6.

Jason Wright

Specifically a European variant, no others can be unlocked. Also, it will bootloop.

Ive had both the v10 and v20, and i enjoy my v20 a bit better.
The v10 has a better 2nd screen but worse battery life.
The v20 is sexy as fuk desu

Justin Robinson
Justin Robinson

I guess ill just get the v10 since its only $99. The battery doesnt bother since I like putting large 9000-10000 mah extended batteries on my phone.

Jace Peterson

Don't get it fag. I have it for almost 2 years and the update support sucks ass. I'm getting the pixel 2 xl asap when my contract ends.

Jaxson Martinez

Posting from a G6 right now, incredible phone. Fast, comfy, great huge screen, but in a moderate form factor.

If you have $250 to spend you can get the G6 used. I think the G4 is kinda too old to buy these days. Look at the LG v20 if you can't afford the G6

Christian Garcia

The ROM community is good for LG phones though. Why not try Resurrection Remix or CypherOS?

Brody Powell

V30 is bigger and newer, G6 is a few months older and smaller, easier to use in one hand. V30 has OLED, G6 has LCD.

That's basically it, the rest is the same.

Has the LG had any issues after the G3's and G4's bootloop issues?
Are they safe to get now?

Cameron Robinson

I do think they are not. I have my venerable Samshit S4 here still doing it's job, but I was longing for a G4 but I don't want a brick.

God fucking dammit almost no one makes a removable battery decent phone
