5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth it. (Battery Tests and Results included), 10 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this LGG4 on the 4th August 2016, so i feel i can give a fair review having owned it for a while now.

I love this phone (no phomo!) and i pray it lasts a life time as i see no need to ever upgrade as I'm not a mindless giddy fashion victim who needs to upgrade to the latest cutting edge phone every week.

Plus points:
- You can replace the battery (spare battery not supplied)
(Spare battery you can buy may indicate a lesser mAh number, but when you get it and check it on CPUz on the phone it is the correct mAh)

- Great battery life, in my experience.
When the phone is left idle most of the time, besides just a few texts and calls, the battery will last sometimes between 250 to 300 hours depending on how much you have running in the backround and how much you do on it besides text and call.
Increasing the battery life is obviously helped by uninstalling all the preloaded trash you don't use, like facebook and twitter for example. I try to keep backround apps and services to a bare minimum.
I would also recomend getting a firewall app that you can use to block certain apps and app handles from using the internet.
Malwarebytes is a must as well.

- Great camera and camera features.
- Smart notice and the built in AccuWeather app are nice touches to an otherwise bland android OS.

Minus points:
- Besides needing a case if you have the silver colour backplate version, as it's a little bit slippy in my experience, there are no faults that i have found (and i do look for faults in just about everything in life)

Lastly, seeing as you can change the battery in the LGG4, you might be interested in this kit: LG G4 Battery Charging Kit
A nice little spare battery and charging kit for £20 that's well worth grabbing if you haven't already got one.

EDIT: I had ran battery life tests and documented the results, but couldn't find the text file when i came to write this review initially, so now I've found the file, here are the test results:

FLASHLIGHT TEST:

From a 100% charge, the light was turned on at 1:22pm then the screen was manually switched off.
I hardly use any programs as it is, but I didn't disable the few programs that i do use because i wanted a real world situation test, what if you needed to use your flashlight in an emergancy? you would naturally just grab your phone and turn the light on and likely would not think of disabling programs right away.
I didn't recieve or make any calls or texts during the test, and i only turned on the screen every now and then to check battery level then manually turned it back off right away.

Notes:
If you don't need to make/recieve calls or texts, then putting the phone into Airplane mode should give you an extra minute or so or flashlight time.
Also disabling as many programs as possible will add extra flashlight time.

Started: 1:22pm
Ended: ~5:20pm
Result: Approx 4 hours total flashlight time.

SILLY AND UNREALISTIC TEST:

I just wanted to run a silly test just to see how long it would last, i actually got a 'heat warning' nearing the end of the test and i removed the back cover and put a fan onto it and it kept running until the battery shut off.
I can't see why anyone would have ALL of these things running at the same time anyway.

Screen set to never shut off.
Audio up full blast.
Full Brower Version of Firefox used to watch high definition video.

Screen brightness 100%
Flashlight on
Wifi on
Bluetooth on
NFC on
LED on

Apps running:
Play store (and updated 29 applications)
Firefox (watching Alex Jones full show at 720p resolution)
Battery usage page
Dropbox
LostNet Firewall
Glasswire
Kindle
CPU-Z
Skype
Steam
Malwarebytes
GPS status
Calculator
Unit Converter

Started: 8pm
Ended: ~9:41pm
Result: approx 1 hour 41 minutes battery life

That's the end of the review here, so thanks for reading and happy shopping.

Sniffing these pencils may lead one to be transported back in time to when they were a kid at school. Not a problem unless it was the 80's and your teacher was always shouting at you and poking her boney finger into your chest. Either way, they're good pencils and will do fine for marking up wood when blunt and sketching when sharpish.

The only way this kit could have been better is if they put sanding belts on the drums so you'd could get one extra set of belts.

The drum look to be good enough to last a long time for lots of detailing and hobby work. Now I'll just need more of the sanding belts!

Good little phone for the price.

I got this one for the kitchen since it has an easy to use mute switch because my dog sleeps in the kitchen.
When muted, there's a little red light that flashes when you have an incoming call. I don't see much point to the little light, however my dog goes into like a trance looking at it and tilts his head to one side with one ear raised, and he makes these funny grumbling noises. In his mind, it's probably some kind of morse code and he's a special agent trying to decipher it.

Shocked to have got this heavy duty shovel for just £5.00! It's certainly worth £25+ so I'm very happy to have spotted it when i did, and even better as it was when i needed to get one.

I've already used this to shift soil from my backyard that was loaded with bricks and small stones and even an old cola can from the 90's that was buried about 10 inches deep in the muck. I started the job off thinking i could just carry on using the old spade i have to loosen up and then shift the muck, but after an hour i hardly got much done. Since getting this, shifting the already loosend up muck went much faster and i had did tripple the work in the same 1 hour. Having the right tool for the job sure does make life easier, and when the zombie apocalypse happens, this will come in very handy indeed!

Thanks to Spear & Jackson for the amazing sale, my back appreciates it!

What can be said about a 24 inch steel ruler? Not much. Except when it's delivered in a box that's nearly double the length of it!

As you can expect, the ruler survived the journey to my home without a single mark on it :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth it, all 3 phones looked brand new!, 21 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Regarding these phones, for being classed as 'refurbished' i have to say these were like new, not a single mark or defect in the software (that i have discovered yet anyway) so I'm glad i chose to take the punt on getting these, instead of the brand new unused ones at a much higher price. I bought 3 of these so i saved quite a bit of money and I feel i got my monies worth for sure.

The boxes looked new, the parts were wrapped up, all the cables looked new including the instructions, so to other potential buyers looking here, don't be afraid to get these refurbished ones!

If you're looking at these, it's likey the built in block feature that brought you here, i can't comment in regards to that feature as i haven't set them up for that yet, I'm still entering numbers and saving them as i go and once complete i will turn on the block feature then, but knowing Amazon customers, someone else will have covered this feature in good detail so be sure to check others reviews.

The rest below is not a review about the phone, but i felt the need to write this so as to help make other folks aware of the dangers which are coming to the surface about wireless devices. If you're not interested or simply don't care, then the review ends here. Thanks for reading.
_____

I bought these 'landline' phones because i wanted to get rid of the wireless ones due to the radiation output from them, and after reading various studies about cancers and nervous system damage caused by such high levels of radiation emitted from those wireless phones, and perhaps it's just my imagination, but i feel a bit of a change for the better already since i installed these landline models.
This change from wireless phones to landline phones won't stop the emissions coming from my neighbours wireless phones or wifi routers, but at least I'm no longer in the thick of it now in my own home, and thankfully i don't live slap bang in the middle of a big city where giant commercial wireless transmiters along with individual wireless transmitters are on 24/7.

There are things folks can do to protect against emissions coming from neighbours wireless phones and wifi routers, but that would involve a lot of work, not impossible or too hard, just a lot of time and labour, but might be worth it in the long run.
Do a search on the subject and take it into consideration anyway. Also be sure to read up on the dangers of wifi/wireless phones so you can make your own choice about this.

Now i can't say for sure, but back in 2005 or 2006, i bought my grandmother wireless home phones thinking it was going to be easier for her to manage, but in 2010 or thereabouts, she was diagnosed with parkinsons, and i do recall her complaining of a lot of stress and pains in her hands and wrists not so long after i got her the phones, maybe around 3 months or so after i got her the phones.
The phones i bought her were a 'top of the range' big name brand and quite expensive at the time, and were the same models i had myself for around a year prior to getting them for her, and i too also noticed stress and pain in my hands and wrists, although i put that down to my lifting heavy weights a lot.
I can't help feel guilt ridden about my grandmothers parkinsons, i got her those phones and then later she got parkinsons and i should have clicked on from the beginning when she was complaining about stress and pain in her hands, if i had clicked on at that stage and removed the phones, perhaps she might not have parkinsons today. I share this experience and information in hope that it may help you and your loved ones, this is truely horrible to sit here with such guilt and even worse to see how parkinsons is effecting my grandmothers life.

Many of you reading this will no doubt laugh and brush this off as nonsense, but in my view these things are connected.
That's fine if you're laughing, I don't mind being wrong and correcting it, but still, i feel morally obligated to make others aware of it anyway, just in case.

Thanks for reading, and please do look into this subject as there are studies out there on this, and it's worth knowing one way or the other for peace of mind.
