Thank you so much! I was d.e.c.i.d.e.d to buy it, now I am DECIDED! Thanks again. Now to bother selling my RM Note 4! The camera is the only thing missing from the China phones - can't believe I am going to spend more on this phone than my last two (possibly twice as much as both)! The G3 has been a real winner - took a punt at £100 delivered refurb from Korea. The RMN4 is a great phone, just the camera isn't great - been carrying both, the G3 as my phone/camera & the RMN4 as larger screen faster games/internet/media device. P20 pro should comfortably replace both.
Ah the cameras.The p20 pro does have an amazing camera. That's the main quality for me in a phone and why I bought the G4 and the p20 pro. What I can tell you is the p20 is definitely better than the S7 edge which is what my wife and daughter have. I couldn't fault the camera on my G4 and was sorry to see it go. I wouldn't say the p20 pro is stunningly better but the pictures are sharper and more vivid when taking photos outside or brightly lit indoors. It takes pictures a lot faster but I wouldn't say it was much better than the G4 but I certainly don't have any complaints with the camera. Bear in mind I have older eyes and won't see the quality difference as well as someone younger but going on what my daughter said my pictures are amazing. She couldn't believe the quality and was asking me take take pictures with my phone on a recent holiday. The P20 pro is definitely a phone to consider. Only downside is on video as ability to take a still shot isn't available. That function was real handy on my G4 and taking a screenshot isn't the same. Hopefully Huawei will look at this for their next update.
I couldn't agree more. All products carry a 24 month warranty under EU law but our great government never really forced UK companies to follow it although our own laws actually better the EU ones but are difficult to prove a claim. My son successfully got Curry's to repair his just under 2 year old TV using the laws where many wouldn't bother and just buy another. He could prove it had less than a years normal use and by referring to various forums proved there was a fault with the model. Similar to the LG G4. Our government could make it quite clear to manufacturers that they give a 24 month warranty on all electronics and give a repair, exchange or refund. We pay enough money for the brand's we love and it shouldn't make any difference whether it's new or second hand. Car manufacturers don't walk away from a claim in the warranty period providing it's been serviced no matter how many owners it's had. Sometimes though it is how you approach the problem. I didn't speak to LG. Registered the product on their website and then went to their support page. I couldn't fault their service. Many years ago I had a Sony phone with an issue on a phone given to me by my daughter. It was within its warranty period but I couldn't orovide a receipt. The phone had only been out 18 months and came with a standard 24 month warranty and they rejected the claim over the phone but said I could return it for an estimate of repair. I sent them a real nice letter and they repaired it free of charge. Sometimes best not to talk lol.
Smartguy1, I had only ever heard negative stories - thanks for enlightening me! I would say however that morally if not legally a phone should last a lot longer than 7 months, regardless of where you bought it or if you resold it 2nd hand (I have long since said that a 2nd hand market is crucial to retailers & manufacturers - no second hand sales would severely decrease the number of people willing/able to buy new). The reputational damage has cost LG a lot of custom - every HUKD thread for an LG phone invariably has boot loop trotted out within the first handful of posts. Forgot to ask could you compare the cameras on the G4 & P20 pro?
It would appear that LG were only unwilling to help those who had bought their phones second hand from private sellers, phones from non European origin, people who had damaged their phones, i.e dropped or with water damage and people who had rooted their phones. LG's terms and conditions are quite clear and when my G4 bootlooped after only 7 months of light use, I found them very willing to help and they replaced the motherboard without issue. I didnt even have to speak to them. Just filled a form out on their website, waited for dpd to arrive with a collection bag and two weeks later had my phone back. Bear in mind they are not obliged to give you a new phone or your money back. Mine had a problem and they fixed it. Bear in mind it makes good sense to take care of your phone because if it has a cracked screen but still works and then fails through a motherboard failure your warranty may be void as they will say it has been abused. The same goes for buying second hand of eBay from a private seller. Warranties with most electronics is to first user only. LG make some nice phones. The G4 was a great phone and glad I chose that over the Samsung S6 even with the bootloop issue. I have the P20 pro now which is better in many respects but not all compared to the G4. The pro is nice but the menu for settings etc is very much like Samsung and I think LG do it better or least they did on the G4 and who needs exanadable memory when you have 128gb as standard.
