    (last updated 8/24/2015) Here are some threads that discuss common issues (and solutions!) that people have experienced and discussed in this forum:

    Photo rotation:
    * http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...ding-them.html
    (What's inside: it's been diagnosed, and there's no quick fix so far.)

    Editing photos "save" error:
    * http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...k-gallery.html
    * http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...-crashing.html
    (What's inside: it's been diagnosed as a Lollipop permissions issue, and can be solved by using another app for editing.)

    Touchscreen sensitivity:
    * http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...en-issues.html
    * http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...-possibly.html
    * http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...wipes-now.html
    * http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...en-issues.html
    (What's inside: it's a software issue, and there's an app that can really help; the second thread makes use of a semi-hidden setting.)

    Scrolls being registered as taps:
    * http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...aken-taps.html
    * http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...sensitive.html
    (What's inside: you can adjust how long of a tap gets registered as an 'enter item' hit using a little-known setting.)

    Auto-brightness:
    * http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...rightness.html
    (What's inside: there's an app that can help out, and you can improve your battery performance. NOTE: If you have Lux enabled, you won't be able to install APKs -- either disable it (Lux advanced settings) or have it use "alternative overlay" and then you'll be able to install your APK: http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...ml#post4593725 )

    Changing volume key shortcuts:
    * http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...ck-launch.html

    * https://forums.androidcentral.com/e?...token=ZsFhygGC (app)

    "Debloater tool":
    * http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...ater-tool.html
    (What's inside: even without root you can use this tool to improve lag and battery performance.)

    Music equalizer:

    * http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...ery-drain.html
    (What's inside: some diagnoses -- could it actually be the Fit app causing the problem? - and a couple of fixes involving disabling, cache clearing, etc.)

    Launcher stuttering:
    * http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...rformance.html
    (What's inside: a thorough analysis of why launchers skip frames, how to do your own analysis, and how to work around the issue if you're experiencing frame stutter in your launcher.)

    WIFI:
    * http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...fi-issues.html
    (What's inside: it seems like 5GHz routers can cause some problems, and there's some suggestions about how to fix the issue by configuring your router.)

    * http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...rge-sound.html
    (What's inside: No great solutions yet, but there have been some owners writing about vibrations and flashing notification lights. Doesn't seem to be wide spread, but something to be aware of.)

    Vertical Split / Display Issues:
    * http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...sue-lg-g4.html
    * http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...ay-issues.html
    (What's inside: Some people have reported seeing their screen show a vertical split screen, either showing a different app on the left side or a bunch of "noise" on the left side. There doesn't seem to be a fix... yet? Added bonus: this is from a different forum: http://www.gottabemobile.com/2015/06...in-new-update/ ... note that they have not found a fix, but there are a few people discussing this issue... it may be worth following.)

    If there are any threads that you think should be added to this list or something that should be removed, please add your thoughts. If you're wanting to add to or discuss one of those issues, perhaps contributing to the linked threads would be helpful to everyone

    I appreciate the effort to help but both of those are nothing but a placebo effect at best and do NOT fix the problem at all.

    Can I highly recommend that you post that comment within those threads? That way they're more likely to lead to a solution.
