Things you can do to fix LG G4 performance issues

 

Turn off Dual Window feature

Some people were able to fix the problem by disabling this feature. Navigate to Settings > General and turn off Dual window.

Remove the apps you are not using

When LG G4 performance issues appear, you can uninstall a few apps. Usually, when we buy a new smartphone we want to try tons of apps, and later on, we forget that we installed them in the first place. Go to Settings > Apps and find the ones you are not using. Click on the app you want and uninstall it.

Use Greenify

You can download Greenify app which is available in the Play Store. This app will show you the misbehaving apps, and when you are not using these apps Greenify will put them into hibernation to stop them from causing LG G4 performance issues, so you can enjoy a lag-free experience.

App related problem

The lag on LG G4 can be caused by a rogue app. If you noticed the problem appeared after you installed a particular app, it would be advisable to uninstall it. If you are not sure the app is the reason why the problem occurred in the first place, there is an easy way to check that. You need to boot your smartphone into Safe mode. Here is how you can do that:

  • Turn off your smartphone and reboot it
  • When you see the LG logo on the screen press and hold the Volume down button and release it when you see the Home screen.

If there are no issues, it means one of the apps is causing the problem. In this case, you should remove a few apps you have installed recently, or you can do a factory reset (explained below).

Update the software

As you know, a new software version comes with improvements and new features, so once you install it you can expect better performance. In order to see if a new software version is available for download, go to Apps > Settings > General tab > About phone. Next, tap on System updates > Check now. Follow the given steps to update the software.

Use different launcher

Instead of using default LG G4 launcher, you may try using a different one. Some users reported the lag was gone after they start using Nova Launcher.
