I have had an issue with Chrome since I bought the phone. Chrome randomly froze for anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes or more. Another phone purchased at the same time does not do it. I tried clearing Chromes data and uninstalling and reinstalling all Chrome updates but it did not help. I finally have it fixed now so I thought I would share what worked. Go into settings, then apps. Find Android System Web view. Disable it. That will clear all data and uninstall updates. Then reinstall it. That cured my problems.
You can uninstall via adb or disable it via the lg package disabler in the market. If you don't use adb there's a tutorial on XDA.
Thanks, I'm giving this a try. When it freezes for me, I can get it unstuck by tapping the recent apps button, then going directly back to Chrome, so has only been a minor annoyance. Pretty sure it happened on my Razer Phone 2 as well.
After re-enabling ASW, did you update it again on the Play store? I did, but too soon to see if this works for me.
