Having Touchscreen Problems With Your LG G4? LG Knows, And They're Looking Into It

Having Touchscreen Problems With Your LG G4? LG Knows, And They're Looking Into It

A growing thread on XDA has seen over 100 LG G4 owners claim that their devices are experiencing a rather troubling touchscreen problem with varying severity. Essentially, the touchscreen is regularly "missing" touch inputs particularly around the edges of the screen, causing swipes and other inputs to go unregistered. The problem is being compared to UI "lock-ups" where input goes unresponsive for short periods of time, though it may be more nuanced than that.

So far, Verizon and T-Mobile models seem most affected, though there have been reports of the issue by several AT&T users and at least one person on Sprint.

The LG G4 Should Now Be Available Across All The Major US Carriers—AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, And Verizon

The LG G4 Should Now Be Available Across All The Major US Carriers—AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, And Verizon

LG showed off the G4 at the end of April, we posted our review a couple weeks later, and we've spent the time since then waiting for the time when folks here in the US can pick the phone up from their network of choice. Availability and pre-orders have trickled out gradually, and now we've reached a point where the phone should be on sale across all five of the country's largest carriers.

Sprint offers the G4 for a total cost of $600.

PSA: The LG G4 Does Not Support Qi Or PMA Wireless Charging Out Of The Box, You Will Need To Buy A Special Case

PSA: The LG G4 Does Not Support Qi Or PMA Wireless Charging Out Of The Box, You Will Need To Buy A Special Case

Sad as it may be, if you've been hearing that the G4 has wireless charging right out of its shiny new box, unfortunately that just isn't true. LG went on the record with us to state that no version of the G4 will be shipping with wireless charging as a standard feature, and that you'll need to buy one of the company's Quick Circle covers if you want to get your battery those sweet, sweet electrons via induction. Here are the specifics.

Almost every G4 sold around the world will support Qi wireless charging - once you buy the Quick Circle case.

LG Releases Its Long Promised Bootloader Unlock Tool, But It Currently Only Supports The G4 For The EU Open Market (H815)

LG Releases Its Long Promised Bootloader Unlock Tool, But It Currently Only Supports The G4 For The EU Open Market (H815)

Many moons ago, LG had promised the release of an official bootloader unlock tool for its G3, but the company didn't make good on its word. It seems that the plans were never forgotten though, because LG's Developer site got a new "Unlock Bootloader" page that does just that, except it's not for the G3 (yet).

While bootloader unlocking is quite easy on Nexus devices, almost all other Android phones and tablets suffer from tightly locked bootloaders that require a bit of tinkering to get access to. Both Sony and Motorola actively try to help developers achieve unlock (and there was a time when HTC did so too), but owners of other brands are usually left on their own - free to roam the forums and try to find a method that works, or to use Sunshine if it's compatible.

AT&T Will Sell The LG G4 Online Starting May 29th, In Stores June 5th: $200 On-Contract, $630 Outright

AT&T is usually first to the party with new phone releases, or at least with their announcements for availability. Not so with the LG G4 - though the phone's launch on various carriers is only separated by a week or so, Ma Bell decided to wait until just a day before to let us know. In any case, you'll be able to buy LG's latest flagship on AT&T starting tomorrow on its website (at 12:01 AM Eastern, according to the blog post) and on Friday, June 5th in stores.

T-Mobile Begins Selling The LG G4: $25 A Month Or $600 Outright, With a Free 128GB MicroSD Card

In the race to sell LG's latest flagship Android phone to Americans, T-Mobile wins by a nose. As promised, the carrier is now selling its own version of the G4 to customers. You can buy it outright on T-Mo's contract-free setup for $599.76, or split your payments into 24 monthly chunks of $24.99. T-Mobile is also giving away a free 128GB MicroSD card with new purchases while supplies last - according to Amazon, that's about an $80 value.

The G4 is a worthy adversary to flagships like the HTC One M9 and Samsung's pair of Galaxy S6 siblings. In his exhaustive review, David Ruddock praised the phone's excellent battery life, solid display, and competitive camera.
