  1. Mine just started running very slow a few months ago too, coincidentally shortly after I paid it off through Verizon. Although I think it may have started after one of the software updates. I have done everything they mentioned and nothing has helped me either.

  2. I have followed every step twice and once before I read the suggestions. Can you offer any further suggestions. It went from being the fastest phone I’ve ever had to the absolute slowest. It just started a couple months ago. I am considering getting another brand if I cannot get this resolved. It is moving so slowly, and even with texts I can type faster than it can respond.

  3. I have followed all the instructions on how to fix my lg g6 lag problem but the problem still persists, any help u can offer will be gratefully received

  4. I’ve tried everything and nothing seems to resolvre the issue. My G6 was Working just fine but I misplaced my phone so I suspended my service til I could replace the device, the phone was turned off when I misplaced it and the service was suspended for approximately 11 days before i found it. When i turned it back on and reactivated my service after 11 days is when I started noticing the issues. The apps take forever to load,webpages stall and take forever to load or end up timing out, videos won’t load and I have to keep refreshing until I get frustrated and give up. I thought maybe it was the memory so I
    uninstalled a bunch of apps which didn’t help. Everything is up to date. I haven’t installed any new apps. I’ve tried resetting app preferences to no avail, I’ve tried resetting network settings…,the only thing left that I can think of is to factory reset the phone and that is the . absolute last thing thing I want to do But,I may not have a choice, I’ve exhausted all other options(unless y’all can help). Thank you

  5. My lg g6 + has lag on pubg mobile game i already brought it to lg store to check is there anybody experience like this

  6. One more thing did I do to get less lag… I unactivated all notifikations from most apps.

    I think many apps looking if there are any information to notifikate from time to time, and if that not correctly handled in the background, it could steal performans and in worst case, cause lag spikes… my theory.

  7. I am pretty tech savvy and had previously done the steps listed above, however; I am still experiencing significant lag when using apps. They seem to glitch upon start up as well as during use. I have enabled developer mode to ensure when playing a game my CPU is dedicating all available memory to the game, but this only improved things slightly. I am at a lose and this is my 2nd LG G6 in 6 months due to the same issues. Once the latency gets terrible the phone stops charging. I want to add this is the first time I have tried using developer options as this was actually suggested to me by a LG tech when I cslled the LG support #.

  8. I already do all of that but my Lgh870ds still lag when i play Rules of survival. Theres no problem on my phone. Lgs lag in 3D game.

  9. Hello,

    Had a LG G6 for a year and had the mother board replaced due to the sim tray breaking off in the inside. Been working fine for a couple of days, now when I turned it on today it won’t turn on so I checked the charger and phone charging port both fine. Pressed the down button and power button to restart the phone and it came back on but glitched at the loading screen 2 times and now it is stuck on the loading screen…. not sure how I can go about this for fixing it.
