Hi,

I got this phone already with Lollipop and I noticed annoying behavour. After some time of usage, when I unlock the phone all the homescreen icons and weather widget refresh for a scond.. That happens all the time. If J close all the apps via taskmanger then its ok for a while and then happens all over again. Anyone else noticed the same behavior? Looks like lollipop mem usgae problem... 😞

Don't worry this is completely normal ..... It is software issue as the LG doesn't lock its launcher app into memory .... so when you exit out of an app (especially graphic/memory intensive) the launcher reloads itself into memory hence widgets and app icon flickers/refresh .... if you use smart notice widget i suggest to remove it from home screen as it uses memory ..... third party launchers such as Nova or even Google now launcher have memory locking feature ..... i hope some day LG clear this issues as new LG (G3) UI is currently the best UI in mobile space (my opinion)

This was a very big problem on the LG G3 however I have no such problem on my G Pro 2 running Lollipop. I assumed it was a lack of ram issue as my G3 only had 2gb and my G Pro 2 has 3 so I am very surprised to hear that you are having this issue.

Thanks for the replys guys. If this is software issue (looks like it is) am very disappointed by LG. And about removing widget, it really not the point since this phone has fast CPU and 3gb RAM and it can deffinately handle it...
