    Let me explain that. It's nice to see people starting to mention the things that they DON'T like about the G4. Yes, some of them are subjective and a matter of personal preference, but that's good.

    When we a new phone, unless it's a complete train wreck, we are in honeymoon mode. It's all roses and unicorns.

    Now that people have had it a bit, they can see any things that they may have brushed off earlier as issues/dislikes.

    This is great for those of us who HAVEN'T bought the phone yet. No phone is perfect, so it's nice to know what to expect, both good and bad.

    It's also a good way for problem solving to start taking place, such as settings to use to help alleviate.

    Yep. That is why we're here ! . It is nice to help others .. especially since no one has all the answers and someone may have found a useful tweak / fix.

    One of my biggest pet peeves with LG phones (especially coming from a Samsung Note 4 and Note 4 Edge) is the auto brightness. The auto brightness on the G4 is so dim. I like to keep auto brightness on to conserve battery, but man...the G4 adjusts the screen brightness all the way down. Comparing the 3 phones side by side, the Samsungs are at 60-75% screen brightness and the G4 is about 45% brightness. I wish there was a way to tweak this a bit.

    Funny you mentioned this. Playing with the G4 at best buy yesterday I knoticed the screen was really bright, then I turned on auto brightness and it dimmed a lot compaired to my note 4.

    Yep; the screen can be very bright when turned all the way on (probably too bright), but the auto brightness is horrible.

    Duncan1982, I want to do that natively without 3rd party apps. Wish they had an option to adjust auto brightness within the settings instead of downloading something else.

    It's also nice to see maturity. It's "blah blah issue is bothering me, does anyone know a fix?" Instead of "this phone is crap because it blah blah".

    If love to know the issues before I actually get mine, because there may already be fixes that people have found and shared on here.

    *Side note: Why no release date info yet from the big 3 here in Canada? Booooo. I keep hearing the 19th mentioned, but nothing official yet.

    There are some pretty good apps for customizable auto brightness. Try Velis auto brightness.

    This. Exactly this. It's nice to be a part of a forum where everyone isn't jumping down each others throats. I started that thread about the notification shade, and was so surprised to get actual feedback and even a solution. It's the complete polar opposite of the S6 forums when that phone was released. People were down right nasty to each other there.

    Would be great if this vibe continues, without jumping on someone because you don't agree.

    We all have different views & opinions and that is a great thing 😀

    If the auto brightness works the same as on the G2 than you have to do more than just put it on auto brightness, at least to set it up right.

    The auto brightness also has a slider from 0% to 100% that you set along with it. So in other words if the slider for auto brightness is set at 50% instead of 100% it will be half as bright. The slider does not mean it will stay at what % you set (like it normally would).

    So go to settings, check the auto box but put the slider to 100% and see if that helps. It will still be in auto brightness but should be brighter than it was before.

    Oh dude. It's NASTY in there, especially for anyone complaining of crappy battery life on their S6/S6E (which is TONS of people). There are a few [censored] that claim that anyone who has bad battery life is "stupid, lying, or doing something wrong".

    Then they tell people how great their battery life is...........after disabling or turning off just about every feature the S6 has.

    Exactly. Always get a kick out of the turn the Bluetooth off don't use GPS turn screen brightness down to 30% only sync email once an hour and then you can get great battery life.
