Bought the phone a week ago as soon as it was available. It was actually not easy to find, and the store that sold me the LG G4 didn’t have it on display. Bought it for KD 199 from Mobile 2000, even though excite is selling the same version for KD 220. I can basically summarise the phone in a sentence, it’s a LG G3 with a really good camera and touch screen problems.
I’m really disappointed because ever since I bought the phone I’ve been having touch screen issues, I would swipe(scroll) through Instagram and the phone would sometimes automatically like images (it double taps) or opens the comment section of an instagram post. On Snapchat I would have to long press a user several times to finally get to see their post. Playing games with dragging is an issue too.
This is not just me, a big majority are facing issues and they vary. Some are worse, where the LG Keyboard will mess up letters everytime you start typing. The user above shows one of the touch screen problems he’s facing, which isn’t identical to my issue. A quick Google Search shows you how blogs all over the world are talking about this.
LG released a keyboard update few days back that unfortunately didn’t help anyone that didn’t have issues with the keyboard issue, such as myself. I’m still facing the same screen problems. I unfortunately cannot recommend the phone at this time (hoping for a prompt update), this seems to be effecting a huge portion of LG G4 customers. According to a poll from XDA, 66% of LG G4 were facing some sort of touch screen issues.
There are some other things worth noting, like the really good camera with all the DSLR options I wanted but I’ll go through that in a full review later and to be honest everything the phone has is overshadowed by the fact that it has touch screen issues.
