Wow...but in my view that's some type of hardware defect and should be covered.
I had one issue years ago with a Samsung from Metro and they replaced it free. I had to jump through some hoops and send an email but ultimately I got it. Maybe they've changed their policies. On my Stylo 4 so far I've had no issues knock on wood

Thanks again! I guess I'll start looking into rooting my S7A. Just not sure where to start; what or who's procedure to follow; which method is safest; which of the many threads/procedures to choose , etc etc.

I suppose one would start here, but what I've read so far ---on those S7A ROM/roots threads--- looked either very poorly written and/or explained, so therefore seemingly precarious to follow or attempt. All with warnings that your phone could end-up bricked etc.

This is a display model, but you can give it a shot

Why did you post this? What you posted is for LG G4, this thread has nothing to do with LG G4, this is LG Stylo 4.

When I reboot into bootloader I get a screen with

quick guidance
1. read device id
fastboot oem device-id
2.write unlock key
fastboot flash unlock unlock.bin
3.check bootloader is unlocked
fastboot getvar unlocked

So it looks possible with the right unlock.bin file.
