One of the most anticipated smartphones for 2016 is none other than LG G5, so I bet that you are satisfied by your choice. Except for a few of the problems that follow just about any phone from the current market, this is the proof that many have been looking for when it comes to LG getting better and better every single year.
However, despite being an evolutionary smartphone from the LG company, G5 is not perfect, just as no other smartphone from any manufacturer can reach perfection. Even though the handset is known to offer a power-packed performance, some users have reported some performance issues that annoy them.
The LG G5 is powered by 2.15GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and it comes with 4GB of RAM, so things should normally be fine. It has been demonstrated that there’s a huge gap between the benchmarks of the Snapdragon 820 and the Exynos 8890 and it seems that the graphics performance points to a 32% in favor of the Qualcomm chip. So, as software becomes more intensive over the course of this generation, the Exynos Android phones are the one that usually fall behind.
When it comes to your LG G5, things are not serious, but it’s all about a delayed start when trying to do something. Things should be different, so is there anything that you can do about it?
How to Fix LG G5 Performance Issues:
- Download the Greenify app from the Google Play Store. This app will show you a list of applications that are active on the phone. You can then change the settings for these apps, which might help fix the slowdown problem;
- Try booting into Safe Mode and check if the issue persists. The Android Safe Mode is exactly the same thing that you can find on a Windows powered computer or notebook. I are talking about the same environment through which you can fix the most common software issues and this is one of them too:
- For the start, power on your LG G5 smartphone;
- Then, press and hold the Power button;
- From the menu options that will be displayed, it’s time to choose Power Off;
- Now, a Restart in safe mode message will be displayed on your LG G5;
- Tap OK in order to reboot into Android Safe Mode;
- Wait while the reboot sequence is completed and then, the Safe Mode icon will be displayed at the bottom of the screen;
- If the problem is gone, then it could be an app-related issue, so the best solution is to simply to delete the last few apps you have installed just before the problem started;
- Installing LG’s latest software update can be the best way to handle this error. If you missed this update, manually install it now and I am sure that you will see the difference;
- If you feel that something is truly wrong, then perform a factory reset also known as a hard reset. However, make sure that you back up your important data, as this process will erase all user data and then, use the steps here provided to achieve your goal.
