    Hi everyone!

    Let me tell you about this problem. A few weeks ago, my phone shouted down because it had any battery charge left. After that, curious things started to happen.

    The battery life reduced dramatically and the fast charge isn't fast anymore. It takes a life to get 100%.

    If I reboot the phone, the SIM suddently is corrupted and I lost the signal (If I put the SIM in another cellphone, it works normally and after that, my phone recognize it as well). With that, I mean that I don't have IMEI (it appears to be "null", but from the boot menu I can see the right IMEI).

    I can't toggle the mobile data (I think that is obvious maybe). If I reboot my phone (I mean, I pick "Reboot" from menu), never wake up again. I have to take off the battery and then turn it on.

    My computer doesn't detect the device (I try to change the "USB configuration" from "developer options", but no matter what I choose, it always shows me the option "Charging only".

    The notification LED, stay on all the time. The color is green.


    Thanks in advance you guys. I have no idea what to do.

    Hello there!
    That is odd indeed :(
    I really can't think of anything short of a factory reset, but if you decide to go that route, just be sure to save what you need to save.

    Oh, I forgot to mention. I've already done a factory reset. No changes at all

    Ah, ok.
    Just throwing this out there but, I wonder if the battery (age of the battery) is making your device act wonky. (especially after being killed/drained) How old is the battery? Original? Perhaps a cheaper alternative is either to get a new battery, or borrow a battery from someone you know with a LG G4 (if that's possible)

    It's a good suggestion. I'll keep it in mind. In the other hand, all the strange behavior of the phone can't be explained just with a battery that isn't working fine I think..but It's worth a try. I'll let you know if that solve the problem

    I know it's strange but seeing as you did a factory reset, and nothing has changed, it makes me wonder ya know? ;)

    Age of battery, the fact it's been discharged.....who knows eh? :)

    Yes, let me/us know if another battery helps....or not :(
