Update to Korean LG G4 fixes certain issues with the phone
The Korean version of the LG G4 has received an OTA update that fixes a number of issues with the phone. Screenshots sent to us by a loyal PhoneArena reader reveal that the update takes care of a problem that results in the phone overheating when certain apps have been running for a long time. Other changes include an improvement to the touchscreen that allows it to be responsive even when using a thick screen protector.

The update to the LG G4 in Korea adds the 'pin app' icon to the Recent apps menu. When an app is pinned, it cannot be cleared off the screen. This comes in handy if you're allowing your young child to use the phone to play a specific game, and you don't want little Jack or Janet to start exploring on your phone. You also should notice a change when using your LG G4 outside. Visibility has been improved to make the screen clearer only in bright areas. And the icon seen in the status bar for the Battery Saver has been changed.

There are also a few other improvements to the phone that come with the update. You can read the entire changelist by taking a gander at the screenshots, which can be viewed by clicking on the slideshow below!

LG should bring this update to all versions of the G4 especially the US models and international ones.

Obviously. But South Korea is their home country and they can easily send out updates and fix bugs first before sending out to the rest of the world.

What are the chances of the US also getting this update?

We will. Eventually. Probably by next February knowing the US carriers.

This phone has been tempting me for a while but I'll stick with my Note4 for now.

I got so tempted with the G4, that I took the plunge and bought it. I too, came from the Note 4. Sadly though, the screen response was horrible.

i hope they send an update to improve the battery life on the phone. i do not own a G4, but from what i have read in forums and some reviews, battery life is pretty terrible

The battery life isn't that great with heavy use. Tweaking somethings can help that. I work 12 hour shifts and with moderate use I usually get through a shift with between 30 to 40% left. The stanby battery life is great.

i was considering to get the G4 but there a lot of contradicting reports about the battery. some say that the stand by power draw is pretty high, whereas some say it is good. however, i have also read that the battery life improves after the first few charges. this battery thing is what is keeping me back from the G4 tbh
