    Welcome to the forums. Are you using the stock launcher or a custom one? Does it also happens when you are using an app or only on your home screen?

    Hi thanks for the screen shot !

    Do you use any 3rd party launcher ?

    Have you tried safe mode ?

    Have you installed any new apps just before this occurred? Safe mode would test to see if it is caused by a third party app.

    The process for turning on Safe mode is as follows:

    Press and hold the Power button.

    Tap and hold Power off.

    When the Reboot to safe modeprompt appears, tap again or tap OK.

    Your device will then restart and it will say “Safe mode” in the bottom-left corner.

    Did you already look at the thread I linked above? A person in that thread suggested going to Settings>Display>Blink LED and turning that off.

    It's the exact same issue -- the screenshots in that other thread show the exact same thing near the Home button. It's possible the person who supplied the solution in that thread was thinking of something else, but it would be odd since there were screenshots showing what the problem was.

    So with the Blink LED option off, you still see the circle? What happens if you long-press it, or swipe up from it?

    The OP of that thread says it's the same thing that shows up when you plug the phone into a charger -- this suggests it could also be a problem with the USB port. Are you having any issues with the USB connection, either with charging or with connection to a PC?

    Thanks for updating us , sometimes going in and out of safe mode fixes little issues like this .

    Excellent news. If the same issue comes back try to find which app you used the last or which one started on its own in the background.

    It's amazing that I still haven't been able to find a definitive explanation for this "feature" from LG.

    Go to the Play Store - My apps & games - Installed - tap 'Last Updated' and change it to 'Last Used'. Which apps are listed there? Do you see any app that you didn't open recently?

    You know, you made me think of something, do you see this circle when you initially plug in a charger? Possible cable or charger is bad maybe clean the phone charger port.
