Okay so I finally got home and the first thing I was going to do was take my piece of crap lg g6 to T-Mobile and switch it for a note 8 heck I was even thinking of the moto g6 or whatever moto phone T-Mobile carries. Well one thing lead to another and before I knew it I was in California bouncing around. I discovered that I could go from five service coverage bars to zero coverage by simply stepping to my left or right.
At first I thought it was my phone but I spoke with other T-Mobile users with Samsung phones and they to had problems.
(The general consensus is get Verizon or At&t for a back up).
So I figured ok I will go to a T-Mobile store in California. No such luck. Meetings, appointments,
Okay so like countless others I have been endless issues with this phone. Your probably thinking just take the thing to T-Mobile for God sakes and be done with it. Unfortunately my current schedule and T-Mobile's kind of conflict. I am generally wrapping up work by 9-9:30 at night my day starts around 7-8am.
The moisture in the USB port for the time has gone away.
So currently much biggest issue is my battery life. Over the last week I have gotten 3-5 hours of battery life. I have been charging I was charging it every two hours, however the last few days it hasn't been possible.
So to make the battery last I have done the following
1)when not in use keep it off.
2) when in use keep the brightness to 50-55%.
3) use comfort mode. Unless I need to see something in color. I keep the display in black and white.
I was able to make the battery life last a full 24 hours. Of course that 24 hour period I didn't use it for probably 19-20 hours. The 4-5 hours I did use it it was in short spans 10-15 minutes to check emails, voice mail
