    Well there was a video released by Samsung regarding a 4k video shot by Note 4.
    Went into youtube to watch it and went into settings and I don't see 4k any more. Just 720p as the highest

    What does youtube quality settings show for you?

    As I mentioned in another post, http://androidforums.com/lg-g3/872811-youtube-netflix-resolution-problems-lg-g3.html, I was having trouble with 1080p and 1440p videos not playing. (they would play like 2 seconds and then stop and just play audio). My guess is youtube/lg must have had a lot of reports of this.

    Now the highest choice available is 720p, it seems. Still it's ridiculous that 720p is the highest resolution youtube offers on the lg g3 now. Hopefully this is only temporary. I've yet to actually see any 1440p or even 1080p video, other than I what I've recorded with the camera myself.

    does anyone from you contacted google and asked for 1440p? or just talking here and waiting for update? I have send them several feedback requests.
    finally, last night I had update to YouTube app (version 6.0.13) and now I can watch 1440p quality on my LG G3.
    you can`t watch 4K (2160p) on LG G3. "just" 2K (1440p)

    Yea it seems Strenki is right. My G3 for the first time since I got it can finally play 2k/1440p videos on youtube with version 6.0.13 without problems. Let's hope google can keep it working this time.
     

LG G3

The LG G3 was the 2014 flagship device for LG, and was one of the first smartphones on the market with a 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 display. It featured a Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB or 3GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, and a 13MP.
