hello,

so last night i just noticed that something was wrong with my jack
left side was louder than the right
i tried alot of things
and finally went to LG service
and they opened my phone up
and saw there was small fungus on the motherboard
even though i bought my phone on 10th dec 2013
and used a cover all along "THE ARMOR CASE!"
it still managed to happen i wonder why
i did get my board replaced though
it was giving me camera crashing and heating problems as well

but this makes me wonder how can fungus pop up on my motherboard so fast.

Moisture attracts fungi... Make sure you keep the phone away from water and let it not get damped...

If you shower with your phone next to you it can be possible that the steam from a hot shower can cause fungus to grow.

Also I noticed that you said the left side is louder than the right. I'm assuming that you're talking about the speaker? The speaker is only located on the left side and the right side is for the mic.
