    Hey y'all.

    My LG Stylo 4 (LM-Q710TS) keeps clutching out. Small but very annoying glitches.
    • Wallpaper resets to default
    • Looping home screen setting keeps turning off
    • Keyboard won't stay onscreen very long.
    • Internet blinks(?)
    • Screen blinks
    Basically my whole phone glitches out and resets little things.

    Any ideas as to why this might be happening?

    With all being said and done if I have to replace this phone, can someone recommend a good phone with at least the following features.
    1. FM tuner
    2. Built-in casting
    3. MHL capable
    4. Easy to root with need of PC

    maybe a factory reset might do the trick.

    as for an upgrade, what is your price range? do you have a particular brand? carrier?

    I prefer LG. But my budget is very low. And it's gotta be TMO compatible. Just sucks, because I've only had this phone for 3-4 months.

    And No dice on factory reset. Did it twice

    Are you by any chance using a third party launcher, or other apps such as calling apps, messaging apps, or any other that runs continuously?

    I ask because on a low performance device there are some apps that use way too much power for such devices.

    Case in point, I had a phone with 1GB of RAM, and I really liked Apex Launcher.

    The phone had most if not all of the symptoms you describe, even if I got rid of almost all my user apps.

    I later discovered that while Apex Laucher itsrlf only uses about 30MB of RAM, the Google Analytics built into it used a whopping 200MB of RAM all the time!

    Together, that makes about 25% of the memory used.
    Now add whatever the system needed to work.

    No wonder that poor phone was acting up!

    So, I ditched that launcher, and now look for apps that do not have Google Analytics built into them.

    It makes the device much happier, I am much happier, and Google can get bent for all I care.
