    I haven't seen any reports of bootloops on the G6. So far my daughter's G6 is running great.

    I am not aware of the G5 having a systemic bootloop issue.

    Agree, come back in about 6-12 months.

    BTW, I have had 1 random reboot with this phone. My V10 never had that nor did it have the bootloop. It's been a couple of weeks since it happened so I'm not worried about as the phone has been performing well.

    Was it while using Android auto? My G6 and G5 have both rebooted when I've disconnected them from my car using Android auto. Those were the only times though

    The G5 and V20 both have it, so far no word on the G6 having it. Hopefully that's been solved.

    Wasnt the V20 bootloop a result of bad USB-C cables that werent authentic? The only confirmed issues were related to the G4 and V10 if I recall correctly. I dont recall widespread bootloops on the G5 or V20.

    I haven't read about the USB cables part; I'm just going off the amended filing for the class action lawsuit that specifically alleges the V20 and G5 as of 3/31/2017: https://arstechnica.com/wp-content/u.../lgamended.pdf

    Yeah, from what I read they added those models "just in case" and are still investigating the G5 and V20. As of now they havent found there to be a widespread issue with those models. There were a few but the majority were from faulty USB-C cables that werent certified.

    Hopefully the issue is resolved and doesnt affect the G6.

    Yep,, I just picked up my Warranty Replacement today for my LG G6 which ended up in the dreaded Boot Loop. It was just over a month old, past the "Buyers Remorse" time period of only 2 weeks through T-Mobile. So now I have a Refurbished G6 instead of new one. LG needs to recall the G6 and fix this issue. I am DONE with LG phones now.

    Well, here is one.. My G6 purchased on Apr 15, 2017 went into permanent Boot Loop on May 20th after a T-Mobile Android update. Just picked up my Refurbished replacement today. I am DONE with LG phones!

    LG G6 Boot Loop issue Does Exist!

    My wife and I purchased our Brand New LG G6 phones on Apr 15, 2017 from T-Mobile. On May 19, my wife's device was sent an Android Update through T-Mobile which she was able to perform successfully. On May 20, my device was sent the update and after the update install my phone went into the continuous Boot Loop and wasn't recoverable. I just picked up my Refurbished Replacement from T-Mobile today. LG Still hasn't corrected their issue obviously and now T-Mobile claims this is a "Known issue" as of 3 days ago, (actually it was 4 now).

    You guys sure it wasn't the update that killed it? You all seem to have taken the T-Mobile update before it died.

    I looked at the survey they used prior to adding the G5 and V20 and the questions asked for answers that could not have led to any concrete support that either model was subject to bootloops.

    That is not the same cause of the issue that plagued the G4 and V10. A bootloop caused by an update means that something went wrong during the update.

    Im hoping a T-Mobile employee didnt say this and its being taken seriously.

    Last trip to the T-Mobile store I listened to the sales guy say the G6 didnt have wireless charging, waterproofing and the camera was the same one used in the iPhone 4. These were his reasons for telling the customer the S8 was the better phone. His manager agreed while I laughed out loud holding my G6.

    These guys know nothing about these phones most of the time let alone the issues they have or dont have. If its an actual article released somewhere Id love to read it though.

    You know what? I hate generalizations and try not to make them, but your experience is very similar to what I had when returning my S8 for the G6. When I entered the store and told the manager I'd like to return the S8 and get a G6 because I wasn't pleased with it, I got all sorts of hogwash about "We've had problems with LG phones" and "are you sure you want to do this? You won't be allowed another return." "The price drop might be an indication of something wrong."

    1. The manager failed to specify what types of problems they've had with LG phones.
    2. If LG phones are so problematic on AT&T why the heck are they being sold?
    3. The price drop is an indication of LG trying to move their product. (Like Samsung isn't doing a BOGO on the S8 now)
    4. I found the question, "Are you sure you want to do this?" insulting. As if I was going to change my mind based on 1 opinion.
    5. "You won't be allowed another return." Ok, maybe not here, but I can visit a hundred other AT&T retail locations to process my return.
    6. My response to the incoming Direct TV sales pitch was a polite, "No thank you." But in my mind, it was an emphatic hell to the no based on my in store experience alone.

    I do my research on AC and by watching YouTubers, make a decision and then go to the store when I have to.

    My apologies for the rant and going off topic, but the G6 has been an excellent device for me for the past 3 weeks.
