    I love LG phones. Had a G4. Have a V10, G5, and G6. All Verizon. Love the form and function of the LG's. Not liking the lifespan of the G6 so far.

    My 1st G6 lasted 1 day. Bought it. Spent the hour or 2 setting it up. Set the alarm to wake in the morning. When I woke up late the next morning the phone was off and would not turn on with or without charging cable. Brick.

    Best Buy replaced it. 2nd phone lasted almost 30 days. Began giving notification buzz with a flashing USB trident symbol in the upper left corner and when the AOD was active. Restarted phone in safe mode. Same issue. No debris in USB C port. Plugged phone in to charger to see if it made a difference, and got a "charging blocked, moisture detected" message. Interesting in that the phone has never even been on a wet counter top. Sweaty front pocket, yes. Actual water, no.

    Hopefully the 3rd time is a charm, as I actually do really like this phone.

    I thought it somewhat humorous/interesting that the day it failed, LG doubled the warranty life on the phone.

    Just thought I'd give a heads up. Maybe find out if these phones are having other issues, or if I'm just getting lucky.

    I would say if it weren't for bad luck you would have none at all.

    Hmmm...sorry to hear you're having so much trouble. the G6 is a great device. I hope your replacement device works better than the first two.

    Yikes! I don't think I can stomach a refurbished unit - please just give me my $ back - I'll carry a 4G flip-phone with a Chromebook instead

    As long as it's under warranty, and my backup G5 doesn't die, I'm good. Although, I may have to voice my displeasure a little louder to LG if it continues to happen.

    I had to chuckle though. I received my replacement this morning, opened up the FED EX box, and staring up at me was a refurbished......LG G5. WTH. Taking another trip to the Verizon store to let them sort it out.

    At this point, I'm just laughing....and so are the phone gods apparently.
