Is the battery life of the LG G4 just not enough?

Is the battery life of the LG G4 just not enough? MPJ's new spare battery might not have running forever, but it sure will be a good choice. At 3000mAh, the replacement has the same capacity of the G4's stock. The replacement battery normally costs $18.99 and is listed as working with most any G4 variant, including at least the American variants for AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular.

LG Optimus 4X HD Gets Replacement Battery Recently

Have you felt annoyed when you are using your LG Optimus 4X HD? The standby time and talk time of this LG phone are long. But it consumes battery power quickly when it is used for other purposes, right? The high capacity battery even can not stand moderate use. How do you deal with the problem? I think that getting a spare battery is a good idea.

To rescue the short-lived LG Optimus 4X HD(P880), a replacement BL-53QH battery was released by MPJ recently. The replacement battery hold a 2500mAh capacity in the same size as the original battery, which means that the battery can fit the phone well. According to the company, the battery for Optimus 4X HD adopts the latest battery production technology and is rigorously tested. This batte

LG VZ ENV3 (slate blue) Navigatio Key Changes?

Hi there...

my 8 year old, or so, phone, let me change the front 'dial' so that I could push up arrow for recent calls, down arrow for vz navigator, etc...

The new ENV3 I just got, has fixed shortcuts on the dial, ones for wallpapers, my music, and others. I have played with different navigation keys/settings, (so I thought they were, on the phone), but they seem to do something different that quick navigation/shortcuts on the front dial, than what I am trying. I have searched manuals, web info, etc.., to no avail.

In summary, I can't change the arrows to the shortcuts I want, so as to be able to push the up arrow on the dial for voice, down arrow for vz navigator, and 2 others using other arrows.

Any way to do this? If so, pl...
