Got a strange issue on my Opti 4X
When i go into Play Store and try and access the 'my apps' section I get a
'Unfortunatley Google Play Store has stopped' message

I have reset my phone, uninstalled play store back to default so it could update itself, cleared the cache.
LG have advised me to speak to Google but if I can avoid that I will

Im running the stock rom.

I have the same problem and have read online that others have it too.

One work-around is instead of clicking on the button, swipe left to right, that will show the same menu as the button without crashing the app.

Yes, i have the same issue Google Play; regardless of what function it is presenting at the time (back, menu etc) the softkey in the top left corner of the Play screen causes the app to crash. It is very frustrating to say the least but as I see it the only viable solution seems to be to swipe left and right as mentioned above and wait for the next update from Google as it appears to be very much a bug in the app rather than any problem with the phone itself. I have a Nexus 7 also so I will check sometime and see if there are any issues with that (I use the Nexus mostly as an alarm clock and e-reader so it does not go online much therefore there will be just about every app to update including Google Play before I can report back).

I know my reply does not offer anything new or provide much help but at least you know that it is not caused by the phone and you can avoid wasting more time with backups, restores and factory resets etc.

I installed the Xposed module in the above post and hey presto, Google Play doesn't crash out when you press the top left soft key
