From today... when I launch the camera app, there is an error message saying 'unfortunately the camera stopped'. Has anyone encountered this too?

1. Do a backup (to SD Card) using the built-in "Backup & restore" function (Setting > General > Backup & reset). Recommend to select external SD Card for the backup file. If you do not have SD Card installed, you'll need to transfer the "LGBackup_yymmdd.lbf" (in \LGBackup) to PC after the backup finishes (and to transfer back before restoring).

2. Perform a "Factory data reset" (Setting > General > Backup & reset).
DO NOT check the "Also erase SD card" if you've a SD Card installed and have stored the backup there.

3. Restore from the backup. Remember to transfer the backup file to \LGBackup folder before launching the restore if you didn't use a SD Card for the backup earlier.

I've done the same for my G4 year back for the same abnormal battery drain issue. I've also factory reset my LG v30+ (yesterday) and v20 (months back) due to abnormal lag in the camera functionality.

It should solve the battery drain issue. If you go to SC, I believe it will be treated as s/w issue, they will just re-flash the firmware. Why waste days at the SC when it can done within 1-2 hour by yourself?

The dent seen near the headphone jack only affects the “internal” finish... glass finish is still smooth!

In essence, the G6 is a refreshment of the V20 in terms of some spec gains.
With a slightly quicker SD821 vs the SD820. Thereís improvements to the display with a higher dpi, thinner bezel-ed and IP68 ingress protection with a sealed glass back instead of the much loved replacement batteries.

DAC wise, canít speak much - since audio prefences differs from individual to individual. However you can see the differences in this review here
http://musicphotolife.com/2017/04/lg-g6-and-lg-v20-quad-dac-comparison/

Registered used /new sets do also come with 2 years of warranty as well - hence as of time of writing, all sets are still warrantied.

There is also a slightly newer version of the G6 called the G6+, which is basically identical but with a nice 128gb internal storage boost (default is 64gb)

There there. What’s important is that you are safe and sound. Moving forward, all new flagship phones are due to be released

Hi bros,

If I purchase a used G6 and the owner has not registered warranty with LG, can I register it under my name and get the 2 year warranty?

Original owner bought in July 2017 with starhub,never registered warranty with LG. He's unsure if he has the 2 year warranty. Any way to check?

You'll need to submit a soft copy of the invoice for online warranty registration, how are you going to claim the 2 years warranty if the seller didn't provide the original to you? If you've the original invoice, how are you going to overwrite the purchase date?

BTW, you can resubmit the warranty registration under your name so long you have a copy of the invoice.
