The boot-loop: My smartphone restarts over and over, what do I do now?

The boot-loop: My smartphone restarts over and over, what do I do now?

One of the most common source of inquiries or complaints we receive from readers is a phenomenon known in the world of smartphones as "boot-looping." After installing an update or patch to a smartphone, the phone then proceeds to attempt to restart itself over and over, endlessly refusing to actually boot up. Phones with "boot loop" problems will attempt to restart endlessly, often until the battery is completely drained. In the event of such a problem, there are a few things you can do, but do note that the "boot loop" is often a fatal condition for a device when common remedies fail to resolve it.

CyanogenMod 14.1 nightlies make it to the Nexus 6, OnePlus One and 2, Nexus 7 2013 (WiFi), and more

CyanogenMod 14.1 nightlies make it to the Nexus 6, OnePlus One and 2, Nexus 7 2013 (WiFi), and more

CyanogenMod 14.1 nightlies have been rolling out for more than a week now and bringing Android 7.1 to several devices including Nexuses and other phones and tablets that don't have the official update yet and likely won't for many more months.

After Steve Kondik's announcement of the 14.1 nightlies rollout, several more devices have joined the fold in the past days. Some have already received a couple of nightly revisions, others are on the list but don't have any 14.1 nightly up yet. Here is the full list:

[Update: S6 edge too] AT&T Galaxy Note5, S6, S6 edge+ receive WiFi calling, advanced messaging, and September security update

Android Pay v1.5 prepares to show new users where to find NFC on their phones and might be experimenting with the secure element again [APK Teardown]

Android Pay v1.5 prepares to show new users where to find NFC on their phones and might be experimenting with the secure element again [APK Teardown]

There are a lot of factors playing into the success and failure of mobile payment systems. Perhaps the most challenging issue for Android Pay to overcome isn't the slow adoption of compatible payment terminals or the general lack of awareness about contactless payments, it's the confusion people experience once they decide to try it. While many users are nervous simply because they don't know what to expect, some others are confronted with an even bigger challenge: they have no idea where the NFC antenna is on their phone. The Android Pay app has been progressively adding more informative screens to help with educating users about tap-and-go payments, and now evidence from a teardown suggests Google will soon teach users what part of the phone to actually tap with.

LG V10 becomes the next Android phone to support AT&T WiFi Calling

LG V10 becomes the next Android phone to support AT&T WiFi Calling

With the almost limitless number of Android devices on the market, the amount supporting WiFi Calling on AT&T is somewhat limited. The first Android device that AT&T allowed into the WiFi calling club was the LG G4, even after the LG G5 had been available on the network for some time.

Aside from the G4, the only other supported devices were various iPhone models, a few recent Samsung flagships, and two other LG phones. Now the LG V10 is joining that list, with a software update pushing out to owners with the new feature.

The update, with a build number of MRA58K, apparently only includes the addition of WiFi calling; sorry if you got your hopes up for a Nougat update.

After 5 years with Samsung and LG, I moved to a Pixel 2 XL and... nothing has changed

After 5 years with Samsung and LG, I moved to a Pixel 2 XL and... nothing has changed

I still remember when we used to bicker over iPhone vs Symbian, before Android took over the second part of that argument. I also remember when Xenon vs LED flash was the most controversial discussion in the smartphone world for several years - some of you may have been toddlers when that started. And I remember when apps weren't a thing, when 3G was the hottest novelty, when we thanked our lucky stars because companies stopped using massive proprietary charging and earphone ports, and when a smartphone with a 2.8" display (Nokia N95 8GB) counted as monstrous. Nowadays, we feel cheated when the second back lens in a phone doesn't bring a lot of improvement, or when the display's color shifts at an angle as if everyone is side-glancing at their phones all the time, when a device has a MicroUSB port and not USB-C, or when it takes a fraction of a millisecond longer for a swipe to register.

[Deal Alert] Forget The LG G5, My Bargain-Loving Readers, You Can Buy A New Unlocked G4 For Just $289.99

[Deal Alert] Forget The LG G5, My Bargain-Loving Readers, You Can Buy A New Unlocked G4 For Just $289.99

The LG G5 has some cool stuff going on with it. It has those swappable battery packs that lend the phone new powers, a powerful processor, QC 3.0 with a USB Type C plug, dual rear cameras, and a host of funky accessories. The one thing it doesn't have is a compelling price tag (it's also dog-ugly IMO). I'll tell you what does have a great price though, the unlocked LG G4 that's on sale right now on eBay for a paltry $289.99. That's less than half the price of the G5 for those of you keeping score.

If value is the most important factor in your phone-buying decision, then it's hard to find many more enticing options than the G4.
