1. You have to update the APN Name and settings manually to get 4G/LTE. For T-mobile I used this link [...] It takes all of about 5 minutes to do.
2. Some people felt the screen was rough.. just peel the plastic cover. Its hard to see.
3. Some mention that the speaker is weak and has low volume. Absolutely not true and the fact that the speaker is in the back does not effect it that much. Its a good sounding speaker and has some decent loudness and tone.
4. I bought a rapid charger and it works very good. I think you need to update the device software before it's enabled. There was a 70 mb update when I first powered it up.
5. This one is important!! When you first power up the device select English UK region. Then set up your Wifi. I did not set up my wireless at this point. Then go to the LG smart world and select UK region again and register it to the device option. If you do this you will have no issues updating your themes, fonts etc.. on the smart world site. This does not effect anything else as far as 4G, email, text.. I also suggest using a gmail account when setting up.
I just got the device and its very fast. As it was setting up all my apps it did not get very hot. The box included a US plug and adapter, the phone as well as some really decent LG ear buds. Also the FM tuner works with excellent reception. The phone was new with all the seals intact. If you use a GSM carrier this phone is the best bang for the buck you will probably find.
Hopefully the tips above will help others from getting frustrated and returning their device.
Edit. I'm seeing the GPS really takes allot of power. If you want to increase battery life turn this off unless you need it. Many forums report the same thing. It works really good but it's power hungry.
Second Edit. This device is DEAD. The infamous boot loop. Build date was 9-2015. I believe that was the last month they had the defective HW. It's a unlocked phone so no warranty even though LG knows they screwed up. I will say that if you do buy a new G4 it will probably be the best phone you ever owned. It's really unfortunate that those that bought the early builds got screwed.
(((((Its problem is a boot loop. Look it up in conjunction with the G4)))))
The international version (H815), especially, is prone to it apparently. Didn't know that when I bought it, and 9 months later I'm out almost $500 (what I paid earlier.) Since this junk has no warranty, LG can't/won't repair or replace it.
The phone was great while it worked, especially the camera. Everything else was par with the other flagship phones now (Galaxy, Note..).
In short, you may think your phone won't have this problem, but whatcha gonna do if it does? There's no warranty and it's unrepairable. You'll lose everything that wasn't backed up (like I did). Stick with either the non-international version of this phone (is unlocked really that worth a dead phone? not to me anymore.) or something else entirely.
my firstborn to Apple everytime I need a new cord, and unlike the Nexus it's fairly user-friendly. My only complaints are:
1) short battery life
2) the phone is big, which is great for watching Netflix but it doesn't fit in my universal car phone holder and it's a bit uncomfortable to type on one-handed
3) no quick way to mute the ringer; the volume control affects different types of sounds depending on what you're doing with the phone at the time you use it
UPDATE: It's been 6 months since I first reviewed this phone. While I am still happy with it, I have discovered a couple more problems:
1) In the past couple of weeks I have developed "smart phone thumb," i.e. pain at the base of my right thumb. I never had this with either of my previous smartphones, which were smaller than this one.
2) Twice the phone has crashed and I have been unable to restart it using the button- there seemed to be a disconnect between the button on the back of the phone and the phone itself. Both times I had to take the battery out of the phone to get it to start again.
3) There is something weird with the port in this phone that connects to the power cord. I have already been through 3 android-compatible cords. They plug in fine at the beginning, but after a few uses the connection between the cord and the phone becomes loose, to the point where the phone does not charge, even when it is plugged in.
