You'll probably have to go thru LG. I know a guy who's a guru at this type of thing on the n5. Maybe he can help on the n4 @bitdomo They're very similar devices

I only can speak warranty in the EU. It maybe different in the other parts of the world.

If the phone is originaly from google playstore you have to talk with google. If the phone does not come from google plastore originaly then you have to talk with LG. To take your phone to LG to repair your phone under warranty you will need the original receipt with the imei number printed on it from the store it was bought. Also keep in mind if the phone comes from GSM shop or then those GSM shops does not give you LG warranty just shop warranty which means that the phone have to be taken back to the original store with the original receipt. These stores sells phones only with 1 year warranty.


I forgot to mention, if the phone is from google playstore originaly then the warranty is only valid in that country's google playstore which the phone comes from.

He could try this if he has patience and determination. This wipes everything and rebuilds the partitions.

I got a full refund from the Ebay supplier
Still very disappointing, Ill chuck it all up to a faulty device
