Discussion on the AT&T version of the LG V10 H900
Pick up the v10 a few days ago on att next - coming from the note 4, heck coming from last 5 years with samsung. I also signed up for the promo already with the extra battery and sd card, also received 100gig from google drive.
Welcome to the forum & congrats on your new V10!
Welcome @cboss. Enjoy your new toy.
Thank you, both!
Let us know your thoughts on your new toy...
Bought this Friday. Loved it at first. This morning at work I used bluetooth to transfer a few pics from my old Note 3 to the V10. It did it with no problem but it drained the battery 40% really fast! I then shut off bluetooth on both devices and the battery drain continued. It got down to around 25% and I plugged in the phone but it seems to be charging very slowly like something is still running and draining the battery. I have restarted it to make sure nothing was running and no change. 30+ mins of charging and it went from 23% to 26%. I am not using the cable that came with it but it should still charge with any one. Another issue and the one that really worries me is that the phone is always running warm, even when just sitting on my desk here at work. If I have the phone do something like update apps or run a program it gets quite hot. Has anyone else heard of this happening with this phone? I'm wondering if I should return it to AT&T store and see what they say. Any thoughts?
Having poor phone reception, WiFi connection, data connection can cause your phone to run hot due to trying to constantly search for a better connection. Also check your network mode data connection and make sure it is not set on global but set to 3g/4g. Apps that continuously run in the background are also huge culprits, especially CPU optimizer, speed booster apps.

What was your screen brightness? How was your signal? I would try the supplied charger and cable..especially with companies using different faster charging methods in their devices. Try powering it off and charging it for a short while...or putting it in airplane mode..but aside from that. I'd be having at&t take a look at it...I know the first thing they'll do is a factory data reset and hand it back to you..vzw is the same way...
I'm strange..and now days you shouldn't have to..but i do factory data resets on my devices right out of the box..the experience I had with my g3 and the g1 razr maxx, started that ..good luck and let us know what happens..
Screen brightness was at max. That may have contributed to it. Also at work I am on the fringe of a signal so that also could be an issue. As for running hot I may just try a factory reset and see if it fixes it. If not I'll try a visit to AT&T and see what happens. I'll let you know.
Please do..many of us are interested in that device..I've had the g2 and g3 for a short time..g4 was kinda meh.. So.I'm interested in seeing what this device does .
Update: I took the phone off the charger around 7AM. I played a quick round of a pix game with my wife and updated my Family Guy game. Total time was around 20 minutes. Not much else. The battery currently sits at 71%. If the decline continues at the same rate then I figure the battery should last until approximately 5PM. That would give me 10 hours on the battery with little to no use for 8 hours of it. My brightness is around 60% and I have 1 bar of signal that comes and goes. My wifi is on but I have no wifi here. I have never turned it off on my old Note 3 either. In the time it has taken me to type this, the battery has dropped to 68%. Does that seem right? Seems like a pretty extreme drop to me. Maybe I'm expecting too much since it's a new battery/phone?
