    My videos are all jumping every couple second when I'm watching videos on my youtube, live tv, or any video apps. Is this just a phone problem or should I replace my phone? BTW netflix app and the web browser videos work flawlessly. Please Help

    Compare watching over wifi and 4G to see if there is a difference. It might be that the 4G is not fast enough in your area and it has to buffer.

    Yup I'm having the same problem. hoping there's a way to fix rather than replacing cause the corporate store is too damn far from my house and it always seem to be a dice roll. the replacement phone could have an even worse problem.

    Like when you're warching tv and there's an interference in the reception. the picture jumps or flickers.

    that is extremely weird since streaming doesnt depend on reception to give you a clear picture but on the quality of connection to allow you to watch a video without buffering.

    take that phone back, you got a F$#@ed up model.

    well I'm holding off on that option as a last resort. i don't like to return things because they always give you a refurbish phone which was someone else's problem to begin with. i might get one of those over heaters I'm reading so much about.

    the flickering seems to only be for the youtube app so I'm hoping a new update will come along and fix it.

    They are not likely to be refurbs yet. They have to get enough in as returns to even send them back to LG. They will bulk ship back, not one at a time to a different country. Then they have to be refurbished and finally returned and distributed. So, the ones you get now are very likely to be new units. Probably will be the same for about another month.

    Well I was just at the corporate store they said since I've had it less then a week to take it to the store where i bought it. i did and was unable to dupilcate the problem in the store. tpartly because they didnt even have signal in their own store!! Anyhow I'm back at home and go figure. my youtube playing hopscotch once again. lmao.
