    I want to buy an LG v20 alongside a 7days replacement warranty....does the bootloop problem start from the very beginning of owning a phone or is it a suddenly appearing annoyance ?

    Generally, the bootloop issue does not appear at the beginning of owning the phone and it does suddenly appear (after restarting your phone). From what I have seen, the bootloop issue on the V20 has been rare. I've had my V20 now since release and no bootloop. I also had a V10 prior to my V20 and did not have a bootloop issue with that phone.

    First, we need to ask which bootloop are you referring to? A bootloop can be caused by numerous problems, both hardware and software related. For LG, their famous bootloop problem was a design flaw in the G4 and V10 and has been resolved in the newer phones. Have any V20's bootlooped? Of course, just look on YouTube. But those are not the norm and there's no telling what caused it. There have been no widespread reports of bootlooping V20's. After you watch some of those, do a search for any phone and you'll likely find bootloop videos of it too.

    The BOOTLOOP problem was been fixed a long time ago. Annoying trolls always comment about the BOOTLOOP: "I'll never buy an LG again!" Dude, they fixed it, starting with the LG G5 and beyond. The LG G4 and V10 both had the BOOTLOOP problem (same phone internally), due to the processor overheating and damaging the parts inside overtime. They actually FIXED AFFECTED PHONES FOR FREE too, and the V30 had a 2 year warranty. There are zero credible reports of bootloop with the LG G5, V20, G6, or V30... any reports of the BOOTLOOP on the V20 was debunked because the person used cheap USB C cables which are known to damage phones. There are other reasons why the phone bootloop too such as water damage but the user doesn't want to admit it, sending the phone in only to have it sent back because the water damage sticker indicated water damage.

    By the way, everyone is slamming LG for the BOOTLOOP but NOBODY remembers the Note 7 exploding and blowing up? What about Apple's #bendgate and #batterygate ? The Pixel 2 easily bending and breaks due to design flaw (shown by JerryRigEverything)? OnePlus screen installed upside down, included Chinese spyware, and sold cheap cables? It's like they have selective memory and pick on the smaller guy, which is LG. Sorry, but your manufacturer probably had some mishap in the past as well.

    BTW I had the V20 for almost 2 years.. zero bootloop and zero problems. No battery drain, no laggy OS, no broken camera glass despite people saying it breaks easily.. I dropped the phone 5 feet on cement with a case on, no problems whatsoever. Remember, it has a military grade rating and originally was marketed as a tough and rugged phone (V10 and V20).

    This has not at all been fixed. My LG V20 is currently stuck in a Boot Loop. Is there anything that I can do or am I just screwed? Please help!

    If it hadn't been addressed, we would've heard about it now. There is no widespread hardware related bootloop problem with the V20. I don't doubt yours is in a bootloop, but yours is an outlier. It's similar to the one lady who's Note 9 allegedly caught fire because of a battery issue recently and is now trying to sue Samsung for not addressing the battery problems stemming from the Note 7. One problem doesn't mean the entire line was designed wrong.

    Try putting it into the freezer and let it sit for about 10-15 minutes. If it doesn't start working, then it is not THE bootloop (which was a temperature related issue). If it does start working, it could be a similar issue affecting a bad batch of phones (as opposed to a design flaw like on the G4 and V10) and may be covered by warranty if yours is new enough.

    Otherwise, your two best options are to try booting in Safe Mode or factory resetting it (make sure you know your Google login info to prevent being locked out when setting up again). If it works in safe mode, then it's likely a software issue related to a third party app. If that doesn't work, then try to boot into recovery and factory reset it.

    Also, make sure your battery is charged. I've seen on a couple other phones where a bad battery caused a bootloop when it drops to about 40% or so. That's uncommon for that type of problem, but wouldn't hurt to check.

    this is the first time I've heard of V20 bootloop..

    seems like a backup phone is a good idea

    especially when traveling
