    LG just publicly admitted they found a hardware defect in LG G4 smartphones which causes the phone to go into a bootloop. Up until now it didn't appear to be a wide-spread issue, but it has been consistent for a notable number of users. Furthermore, the issue has apparently persisted for a few months and was increasing in regularity.

    It turns out that the problem may be more prevalent than first realized. According to the report, the hardware issue could potentially affect all regional and carrier-branded LG G4 models. After doing some investigating, LG found that the culprit is likely a “loose contact between components.”

    Here is their full statement,

    LG has vowed to repair all affected devices. If you start to experience this issue, you should contact LG tech support immediately.
