How to fix LG G4 that keeps restarting itself

In April 2015, exactly 2 years back, LG released the LG G4. The flagship device of 2015 from LG equipped some mention-worthy specifications. LG G4 was LG’s 2nd flagship smartphone to come out with a QHD display. The 5.5-inch display with 2560 x 1440 pixels of resolutions looked amazing. LG added a 16 MP shooter at the back and an 8 MP shooter on the front. Snapdragon 808 CPU with Adreno 418 GPU was used to power up this phone. LG G4 has a 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage. This phone has 3000 mAh battery juice. The G4 ran on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box, later on, it was upgraded to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Right now, the G4 runs on Android 7.0 Nougat.

Android smartphones keep coming across issues every now and then. The same happened with the LG G4. LG G4 has many problems which were never addressed by LG itself. One of the most common issues that the LG G4 owners have been witnessing is the device restarting on its own. The LG G4 keeps restarting itself randomly. Suppose a user is just surfing the internet and collecting some important information, the phone restarts itself and it just messes up your research work. Another scenario is, you are asking or telling someone the address the phone restarts to cut your call off, it will be more than annoying. These are the issues being faced by LG G4 owners.

I have tried to come up with a list of solutions that will fix the LG G4 that keeps restarting itself. You can apply these fixes one by one and hopefully one of these will work for you.

At times, this issue can come up because of too many operations messing up your phone. To fix it, you can just wipe the cache partition of your phone and check it afterward. If the phone doesn’t restart itself anymore, it means that clearing cache fixed the LG G4 restarting issue.

LG G4 Keeps restarting: Boot into Safe mode to check applications

Booting your phone into safe mode will disable all the third party applications you have installed. This is a great way to check if an application is a culprit. Sometimes, a poorly developed application can cause your LG G4 to restart itself randomly. The best way is to boot into the safe mode and see if the phone reboots even after all the apps are disabled. If it doesn’t reboot again, it means there is some application acting crazy in the phone. In this case, you will have to go through all of your recent installations and delete the applications that you think are the cause.

  1. Turn off your LG G4 completely.
  2. Now press and hold Volume Down + Power key. Keep the keys pressed until the phone turns on.

  5. Now use Volume Up and Down keys to navigate to the Safe mode option and press the power key to select it.
  6. Your phone will now reboot into safe mode.
  7. All the apps are disabled at this point. Check if the phone still reboots. If it doesn’t, that means you need to find the application now.
