    So I'm experiencing really poor battery after updating to mm. I know everyone says to do a factory reset. I've usually never done that after updates but my battery Definetely has taken a considerable hit so I'm considering it. What's the easiest way? I've heard download LG backup from the play store? Just wanted to check people's experience with that as it really doesn't have great reviews?

    My contacts and pics are on SD Card and Verizon Cloud. So, other stuff I backed up under Google Account (App Data). Did factory reset and got everything back. Contacts ported back from Verizons Cloud with no problems. I gave up trying to back up contacts to google, last time I did that and did a reset (old phone) they never ported back. So now SD card and Verizon cloud.

    In Settings, if you have list view, it's under>> Personal then>>backup & reset. Then opt for LG Backup or Google Backup.

    No it doesn't cost anything. I've never used Verizon cloud so I don't know how that works but the AT&T version just saves pics/videos where LG Backup saves everything including apps and data.

    Factory Reset may resolve your problem but there is an alternative solution! Try to Force stop running applications, they are the one who eats your batteries and I recommend you to Download Purify or Clean Master LITE or both to help you force stop applications quicker! Hope this help!

    You could also try a battery pull since you can remove the battery on the V10. Shut down your phone, pull off the back cover and remove the battery for about 60 - 90 seconds. Put the battery back in and turn your phone back on. I like to try the least painful solutions first!.

    I did as suggested and backed up before the update. Then did a reset and am now restoring the backup. VERY slow. 10 minutes and now at 27% restored and counting. I guess that is the re-downloading and installing of all the apps.

    Having not used the LG to SD card backup before my question is: Other than what Google does automatically with my Google/gmail account info, is the LG backup all I need? Can I forget about the annoying Verizon cloud backup?

    Also once the backup is restored, I think I will look for that DT Ignite app and try to disable it. Sounds like a good idea if that will stop at least a few of the many bloatware installs that Verizon forces on to the phone. I have seen a few different posts talking about doing this, but have not seen specific instructions. Can someone just post a simple 1, 2, 3, etc. step list for exactly the best way to proceed after the backup restoration process finishes? Thanks!

    Use Google Photos or move photos to SD card. Ensure Google Contacts sync is enabled, check your WhatsApp backup to Google Drive, and you're mostly good to go.
