    Um, No not trolling, actually went with the Pixel and thought the G6 was a nicer phone, but I had 3 G4's in the family that bootlooped and stuck on the "life's not good screen". After that just felt I would not take the chance. Was only posting an observation when looking at phone's in the store and it made me even more concerned about going with LG again.
    While I can't guarantee anything, I think it would be pretty foolish for LG to make the same mistake 3 times. I think the major bootloops ended with G4 and V10. The G5 has rare reports of bootloops and most reports I've seen are not bootloops or not bootloops of the systemic problem with G4/V10. The same for the V20 and the G6 though they haven't been out as long, especially the G6. The great thing is that LG is offering a two year warranty at least in the US on the G6.

    I have a G4 and had the bootloop issue. Hardware defect. Had it fixed under warranty by LG, they put in the latest (At the time) mainboard and have has not a single issue since. I absolutely adore the G4.

    I was disappointed with the G5 but the G6 i think will be its replacement, just really for the wide angle camera, waterproofing an newer software. My G4 is in immaculate condition and even as I write this I don't know if I really will move to a G6.

    So I wouldn't worry at all about a boot loop issue.

    G4 had an inherent design fault where motherboard cracked when phone got hot. LG acknowledged the fault in several press releases. However they refused to fix my bootloop/motherboard issue as it was an import even though it was a worldwide issue and they admitted to the problem.

    Well it just happened to me also this week, got my g6 in march when it was first released. Have received a few updates over the months but 3 days ago I woke up and saw a android update available so I installed it. After phone powered down and tried to restart it's stuck in a constant reboot. Took the phone back to sprint store and of course that can't do anything with it. Contacted LG and they said to send it back and they will repair it, 2 weeks minimal. So from what I've read so far throughout this forum is that everyone who has gotten the boot loop problem all received a update prior to the loop. I must say this needs to be addressed as this is not a one time event apparently.

    Unfortunately this can happen during an update and its hard to pinpoint the actual cause.

    It's all over the Web, I hate it because LG doesn't seem to be getting something right! Year after year they continue to be stubborn, then the recent case status on the previous bootloop class-action is worrisome - hard to stand by a company who doesn't stand by their customers

    maybe I was a lucky one but I never had the bootloop issue with my G4. I did , however, gave up when the G4 would overheat with simple tasks, bogged down, stuttered, or freeze up completely. but the G6 I've had since May 28 from AT&T is smooth as butter and no issues yet

    I used to let the phone in sunlight perhaps that s the reason it goes into boot loop...friends of mine whou bought the phone earlier then me have no problmes yet. Perhaps the heat time is the problem that lead to that issue.

    Went to Verizon store yesterday and every G6 there was hot while plugged in, every other phone in the store all plugged in were cool. Gave me more concerns.
    Yeah mate but those phones are on charger 24/7 until they completly go off sale.. And it's hard to belive that the g6 was the only hot one..

    I too went to store to check g6 before i bought it and yeah the phone was hot. But phones in stores are always on charger, and always run demo videos so the screens are always on aswell with max. Brightness ofc it would be hot. 😁

    My g6 is at lets say 32 is average temeperature of the phone when i put him on charge. During the charging it goes up to 36, but after i remove him from charging the temperature was never over 35. In celsius, you have idk kelvins, fahrenheit. So if i am correct 35 celsius is 95 fahrenheit. Srsly i use phone during hot sunny days and it doesn't go above 38 celsius, and temperatures here in croatia. I mean currently it's 11:45 a.m. and it's already like 33 celsius. So when i'll be going home ti will probably be somehwhere between 35-40. And the G6 performes awesome unlike the G3 who was in my pocket on this kind of sunny days, on standby with temperature of 44+ celsius or if you want 110+ fahrenheit.

    Update see

    You're still covered under the one year factory warranty that your carrier would take care of and send you a new device at no charge.

    Hey all I'm currently looking at getting an lg g6 but the infamous boot loop is slightly scary. My question! Are US versions much different to Eu versions (I'm from Ireland btw). All of the bootloops ive ever heard about are all from the US but I've never actually heard of a boot loop in Ireland or the Eu! So should I be worried about getting one? Thanks in advance everyone!

    Eu version has no "special features" like wireless charging and quad dac is worth the same price so if you're gonna buy one get a u.s or asia version (wireless charging or quad dac) it's a great phone but if you're stuck with eu version i don't think it's worth the money tbh.

    I can get an Asian version with 64gb internal and quad DAC here - https://www.eglobalcentral.eu/rma-me.../product/20538
    Anyone think the g6 will drop in price with the release of the v30 at the end of the month? If it did I might pick up a g6+

    That is, if the claim is even real at all! I find that people will lie about things like this just to hate on LG. The Bootloops with G5 and V20 were very minimal. The G6 has had none at all. I'm very happy with my G6.

    You're right. Sometimes you'll get trolls on forum sites or websites in general who may try to do these things. I've seen nothing of the G6 having any bootlooping issues. It definitely sounds like a good phone.

    I've heard overall​ positive reviews from G6 users in the forums - the device seems to have good longevity.

    It's hard to gauge user satisfaction during Release Seasons for new flagship phone releases, though - some users who switch often, for example, will put down their G6 for a Pixel 2 XL, or a Note 8. But that is characteristic with any device across the board; as upgrading to the latest model is dependent up on the users' buying habits and need to try something new, IMO (not necessarily because their prior phone wasn't satisfactory).

    If you want a G6, go for it! It is probably one of the most underrated phones of the year; and it still performs well today. I've seen some good reviews on it.
