    Angry Did LG accidentally load 3.1 on this trash???

    Havn't been here in a while because I was fairly happy with my LG G2..Low and behold I use my "jump" program to get this thing (lg g3). I must first say that the device itself is a beautiful unit, however, this thing has more problems than any Samsung Galaxy product!!! I mean how in the world did this thing get past so many QC departments amazes me as it brings me back to thinking it was shipped with Android 3.1 or something. The top issues are:
    1. Gets hot as heck if you are power using.
    2. Battery drains like crazy with screen only on 35% brighness ( you can literally sit there and watch the drain)
    3. Jittery as hell - It behaves like a old single core processor as there is almost nothing smooth in it's transitions.
    4. It constantly blinks and stutters through task that Android users have been doing for years.
    5. The home screen constantly redraws.
    6. Audio out of headphone jack has issues.
    Overall this device is not worth keeping at this point and is going back today. Hopefully I can find a G2 on CL for a decent price and hopefully my "jump" is reversed.
    I know im going to get a few liars to comment that none of these things are happening on their phones just like they claimed the Palm Pre got 24 hours of battery life..lol..

    Sounds like you have ART enabled on a Verizon version. I had a lot of these issues when I first got it because everyone said, "Enable ART, enable ART." Ya, well that screwed it up big time. Any way. Back to you. Did you switch from Dalvik to ART in the Developer settings? If not, have you enabled the developer settings?

    got settings > about phone > software information > android version to see if you have 3.1 on it.

    you should have 4.4.2 on it.

    If you do have 4.4.2 on it. Goto backup & reset and do a Factory data reset. If you still have same issues after a reset I'd exchange it.

    Mine is just fine and I came from a G2.

    I wouldn't just go right out and call people liars. Some of our Ambassadors have no issues with their G3 devices... Just because yours may be a lemon doesn't mean everyone has one as well.. Or is lying..


    I would try what is suggested above. Did you enable ART? If so it has been reported to cause issues with the G3.

    I keep hearing about this ART. I'm going to upgrade my phone tomorrow (been debating between the G3 and the M8; through Verizon) and was wondering, how do you disable this ART everyone keeps talking about? What exactly is it? Many thanks!

    You don't need to disable it, ART isn't the default, dalvik runs by default.

    ART allows you to view and critique paintings by new and upcoming artists and interact with them and other art lovers around the world.

    Just kidding. ART stands for android run time. More info is here:
    http://www.anandtech.com/show/8231/a...t-in-android-l
    However, be aware that ART is still in beta and can and will be subject to bugs, malfunctions, etcetera. It won't be enabled by default. Or shouldn't.

    This is why I presented the question as to how to turn it off. I too am with Verizon and if if this ART is on by default, and causes issues which have been reported then I'd like to disable it as well.

    This is odd since ART isn't official yet. I'm guessing someone messed up. Easy enough to remedy though, just disable it. You'll have to sit and wait for your apps to recompile back to dalvik so I would uninstall all your 3rd party apps first.

    I wonder if that is correct? Haven't heard other T-Mobile owners say that. Maybe you got a demo or a returned unit or employees were playing around with it before selling. I'd reset it.

    Something is definitely wrong here..I went to Dev options and it was on ART..I then changed it to Dalvik and it didn't go through app optimization. I then set it back to ART since that's how it was set and then it went through optimization. Strange!

    Ah. I've stayed away from ART so I wasn't aware that there wasn't a wait to convert back to dalvik. Cool, all the better then.

    Interesting, mine was running dalvik. Perhaps Verizon knew it was having issues on art and had dalvik as the default.
