    Hello, I've just purchased an LG G4 VS986 for my grandmother. As a newbie to the phone I need a couple of tips:
    • Would a third party extended battery be a good choice? I've read this phone's battery life is not the best. However, the batty the ebay seller included works well as of now.
    • Do you recommend staying on android 6.0 (marshmallow) or would installing LineageOS be a better choice? I would like to install LineageOS for simplified interfaces and features, but I am concerned whether the custom rom will negatively affect battery life or cannot use audio, wifi, camera, messaging, etc.
    • If keeping the stock rom is an overall better choice, then is there any easy methods to root the phone? I desire to disable background tasks with the application, Freeze to optimize battery life and keep the phone convenient for my grandma that does not speak English very well.
