LG G4 – Tips & Tricks

I have a few tricks figured out that I would like to share with you. I'll also summarize a few items together in the forum.

menu button
As an example I quote here the Blizzard Authenticator. This requires a menu button that is not displayed on the LG G4. However, by a long press on the square of this comes to Vorscheinen. Works in any other app, too.

System Menu in list form
This has particularly bothered me in the system menu is done to integrate into tabs. This can be solved in the system menu, there is the top right button a menu but simple.

grayed out screen lock selection
"Disabled by the administrator, encryption policy or authorization memory."
Here has helped to clear the certificate store. menu > safety > Certificates > Delete certificate store

Hidden menu
The following entry in the phone dialer opens a menu with special information and test
277634 # * #

hidden watch
In an off-screen can be downloaded by a highlight display the time.

call lightning
Often seen in EiPhones and now for the G4
settings > Accessibility > Hear > Flash Alerts

Night mode - darker screen
Many complain about too high screen brightness. Even if you push the brightness control all the way down. Again, there is an option. Moreover, it also saves battery.
settings > input Help > See > Screen darkening

Control for the notification LED
Here you can decide when ever to light up the notification LED
settings > sounds & Notifications > Notification LED (press the writing, not the on / off button)

Factory reset
Is the desire as to delete everything it stands a factory to make reset.
I open the phone dialer and are 277634 # * # a. then changes to SVC menu and choose Factory Reset > Factory Reset (Power Off). After the LG G4 is turned off, you can turn on and reconfigure it again.

Folder in the app list of LG Home screens
Google folder seems to be so present that you really going to ask the other apps as well. Yes it works.
To do this, open the app list and go to the menu (the three points above right). There first changing the sorting app "custom", Now you go again to the menu and select "Apps Edit / uninstall", Now it is possible to structure the desired apps into folders. After that, the sorting app can also change back to Alphabetical.

Do you still have tips or tricks : P

I think something like that is only possible with Custom Roms. I personally like the new symbols better frankly ^^


Hello,

Who wants to take G4 screenshots with its LG, which must do the following:

Pressures simultaneously (on the back) the power - and Volume down button simultaneously. Thus, you can take the screenshots.

Have fun with it ;-)


That role should Tips & Tricks are not obvious or common in the Androidwelt. That are hidden and not be explained by a popup. By the way, with every Android phone from 4.0 to Do a screenshot with volume down key and power button.

This is on to Google's material design and not at LG.

@Marlies Z. Because you lie completely wrong, because with my old Galaxy S 3 (Android 4.3 version) was not that you had a hand edge across the screen wipe to generate a screenshot.

And this is also manufacturer-dependent (I guess).


why the excitement about screenshots? simply insert the QuickMemo on the Navi-bar, select transparent background, making Screenis whenever you want :)

Only one small request, if you quoted: Quoted but not getting the full story, but only the relevant points. Otherwise it will quickly become confusing ...


@ Punisher So wrong it's not at all Samsung phones there is the method of simultaneous depression of home and power button. This is really just a variant of the Android standard, probably due to Samsung's special key arrangement.
The making of screenshots hand edge was still an added feature.

Anyway @Carla M. went with me it only with the hand edge. Why that is / was, you have to ask Samsung : D
