LG G4… Live’s (not so) Good!

Ugh…  This WAS a wonderful phone.  Until just a few minutes ago.  The phone is now and ex-phone.  It has ceased to be!  Montey Python’s dead parrot skit is now running around in my head.

Battery is fine.  100% charge.  Apparently this is a hardware issue and a common one, google bootloop LG G4.  LG doesn’t seem to want to step up to the plate and admit to the issue.

For me, the phone brings up the LG screen and then eventually black/blank screen. I can’t even get to safe mode or to factory reset the phone like some videos show.

I bought the phone in end of November 2015 from Wind.  Unlocked it so I could use it on Fido.  I don’t think I have a warranty on it any more and from what I heard, repairs will only end up being a temporary fix for the problem.  In general, consensus is, get a different phone.

This makes me sad and angry.  Tech wise the phone was great.  Shame that it is now an expensive piece of tech junk.  Thankfully I’m not without a phone.  Recently I bought my wife a new Google Pixel to replace a Google Nexus 4 which seemed to be starting to act up.  She hasn’t yet moved to the new phone so looks like it will be my new phone and she’ll get a different one later when she finally gets fed up with the Nexus 4’s frustrations.  Rather pathetic lifespan.  Didn’t want to or need to upgrade the phone yet.

Sort of miss the rock solidness of my super simple Nokia ‘un-smart’ phone.  Hell my ACER Liquide was better except it needed a new battery.
