Ok are you aware of the major issues with this phone and do you know if its already suffered from the bootloop issue
i have no idea if it has or has not sufferered the boot loop issue, but is that anything to do with it heating up? Maybe its becuase im so used to the s7 edges battery life. Can someone tell me the average no. hours you get out of the lg g4
Check the model number
503-509 are prone to boot loop mainly caused by playing games. Mine is a 509 and i wouldnt be playing games on it.
Yours is out of warranty now isn't it?
how can i find this model no?

I think i fixed the heating problem now, but the battery dying is still a problem. It was becuase i had antutu installed and every time i was playing the game it would for some reason start that too. I uninstalled it now it just gets warm. But what about the battery life. Is the lg g4s battery really that bad? OR does it actually normally last a whole day?
Battery can be an issue if in doubt just buy a backup thats charged up

Warranty is good because if the phone hasnt suffered from this issue then there is a good chance it will do or if your extremely lucky you might not.Just make sure you back up everything regularly and be prepared for it just to suffer the bootloop issue and the battery to get hotter and hotter,Luckily you are able to take the battery out but it will be a dead phone till you get it fixed.Have a look at this thread for more information

Wow really needs 2-3 charges a day? what model is it and has it suffered from the bootloop problem
#30
Usually I get a day and a bit when I'm at work from checking emails etc. Weekends probably a day is say. Mine did get warm when using it as a sat nav but since I updated from a rom on Xda forums it's definitely kept it a bit cooler.
banned#31
mine will heat up very rarely, battery can be a pain but i don't mind because it charges quick.
currently the lead needs replacing because it charges only if I press lead down. ordered one yesterday from eBay 99p, says fast charger.

No need.
Simply pull the battery, look at the serial number under the IMEI. The 1st 3 numbers are what are important. e.g. Mine starts with 511 - so not the infamous bootloop range.
